Dental Cleaning
At a dental cleaning appointment we check the health of your gums, take necessary x-rays to help our doctor diagnose any conditions, and clean your teeth. Our hygienist and doctor will review the diagnostic data to determine what type of cleaning you need. Then our hygienist will clean your teeth and review home care techniques with you. Contact our office for dental cleanings in Batavia, IL. By scheduling your bi-annual dental visits, we can help ensure your teeth and gums remain healthy for longer.
Scaling and Root Planing
Some cases of acute periodontal (gum) disease that do not respond to more conventional treatment and self-care such as flossing may require a special kind of cleaning called scaling and root planing. The procedure begins with administration of a local anesthetic to reduce any discomfort. Then, a small instrument called a "scaler," or an ultrasonic cleaner, is used to clean beneath your gum line to remove plaque and tartar. The root surfaces on the tooth are then planed and smoothed. If effective, scaling and root planing helps the gums reattach themselves to the tooth structure. Additional measures may be needed if the periodontal pockets persist after scaling and root planing.
Dental Fillings
A dental filling is a procedure used by a dentist when he/she is removing a cavity. The dentist will remove the decayed area in the tooth and then ‘fill’ in the removed space with a dental filling. The dental materials used to create fillings are designed to mimic the look and durability of teeth can also be used to repair chipped or broken teeth. After the material is inserted into the cavity, the dentist will use instruments to shape it into the rough shape of the desired tooth. The dentist will shape the tooth to look natural, matching the color and shape of the other teeth, thereby preserving the esthetics of the patient’s smile. Using a special ‘blue light,’ the dentist will harden the material in a matter of seconds, and then shape and polish the hardened material to complete the restoration.
Implants are synthetic structures that are placed in the area of the tooth normally occupied by the root. Implants are anchored in the jawbone and act as a foundation for an artificial tooth or permanent bridge. Implants can be used to attach a fixed denture or removable denture.
All-on-4 Implants
All-On-4 Dental Implants are a revolutionary new dental procedure designed to offer a permanent tooth replacement for individuals suffering from missing teeth across an entire row of teeth. Tooth loss is extremely common among adults, especially in old age, and the short answer is that dentures are often not the easiest or most comfortable solution for adults struggling with tooth loss. All-On-4 Dental Implants provide a unique procedure that secures a row of permanent implants on 4 or more anchor points. All-On-4 Dental Implants are made of titanium, and as the patient continues to live a normal life, the All-On-4 Dental Implants fuse with their bone, increasing their permanence and durability. This helps to maintain a healthier jaw and jaw structure – important aspects that affect older adults.
Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain cemented over the front of your teeth to change their color or shape. Veneers are used to correct teeth with uneven surfaces or that are chipped, discolored, oddly shaped, unevenly spaced or crooked.
Crowns and Bridges
Crowns are synthetic caps, usually made of a material like porcelain, placed on the top of a tooth. Crowns are typically used to restore a tooth's function and appearance following a restorative procedure such as a root canal. When decay in a tooth has become so advanced that large portions of the tooth must be removed, crowns are often used to restore the tooth. Bridges are an option to replace a missing tooth. Also known as a fixed partial denture, dental bridges are used to literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth.
Teeth Whitening
Whitening procedures have effectively restored the smile of people with stained, dull, or discolored teeth.
Clear Braces
Clear braces are invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that will give you the beautiful straight teeth you've always wanted.
Root Canal Therapy
Our teeth have a soft core called dental pulp. The dental pulp extends from the visible part of your tooth – the crown – to the tip of your tooth’s root in the jawbone. Our teeth’s pulp contains nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue. So when a tooth is cracked or has a deep cavity, bacteria will be able to enter the pulp and if left untreated, infection occurs and causes tooth pain. Serious infection in the form of a tooth abscess will happen if a cracked or damaged tooth is left untreated. This will lead to pulp death, bone loss and loss of the tooth itself. The signs and symptoms you should watch out for is swelling around your face and neck, a hole in your tooth, toothache or tooth pain, gum swelling, and temperature sensitivity. A root canal treatment is recommended to help prevent infection and tooth pain.
Tooth Extraction and Bone Preservation
A dental extraction involves removing a tooth from its place in the jaw bone. Extractions are done in dental offices by either the dentist or a dental surgeon and are usually performed under local or general anesthesia. A dental extraction is recommended when tooth decay is severe and nothing can be done to save the tooth, or when the tooth is infected or vulnerable to infection. Bone Preservation is a graft material that is used to preserve the jaw bone to allow better contour to the tissue or set the scene for successful dental implant placement.
A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and adjacent tissues. It is made of acrylic resin, sometimes in combination with various metals.

Dental Emergencies

Toothaches need to be treated as soon as possible. It is a sign of an underlying dental problem and if left untreated the problem may progress and worsen over time. Treating a toothache early will almost certainly be less costly and extensive than if it is left alone.
Broken Teeth
Having a broken tooth means that there is a problem with your tooth itself. The causes for a broken tooth can be decay, teeth grinding or an old filling breaking. Whatever the cause, it is important to see dentist to have it treated immediately. Your broken tooth may give way to infection from bacteria and this will lead to more serious dental problems.
Knocked Out Teeth
Accidents and injuries from sports and other activities can occur. If you get your tooth knocked out accidentally, we recommend placing the knocked out tooth in a container of milk and bring it immediately to a dental office. If it is within 1 hour, there is a possibility that the tooth can still be saved. Take care to NOT wash the broken tooth.
