Your oral health starts from here
At Engel Dental Center we provide primary dental care. We diagnose, treat, and manage your overall oral health care needs, including gum care, root canals, fillings, crowns, veneers, bridges, and preventive education.
Dental Cleaning and Exam
These regular check-ups are usually set at six-month intervals and include a thorough examination, cleaning and oral pathology exam.
Sometimes, we do recommend having preventive dentistry treatments more frequently depending upon the patients needs.
What if you could spot the tiniest cavity before it became visible to the naked eye? Now, we have that ability thanks to a small device called the CariVu.
The CariVu is a patented, handheld cavity detection device that uses transillumination technology to identify occlusal, interproximal and recurrent cracks and lesions in the teeth. With the assistance of the CariVu, we can stop cavities before they take over. It is one of the most exciting tools we have in the fight against tooth decay.
If you have a large cavity that’s too big for a filling dental crown can work as a cap and be placed on top of the damaged tooth to protect it. Crowns can be made from a variety of materials, such as porcelain, zirconia, resin, ceramic, metals like gold or chromium.
Crowns are also used after a root canal on a tooth because the tooth is more fragile and needs protection. Your crown can last between 5 and 15 years.
A dental bridge or pontic is a false tooth that is held place on either side of your missing teeth. There are 4 different types of dental bridges: Traditional, Cantilever, Maryland, and implant-supported bridges.
A dental bridge might need to be replaced every 5 to 15 years, while dental implants are considered a permanent solution.
A root canal is a highly reliable way to stop the pain, discomfort and potential problems related to tooth abscesses and infections. We perform all root canals in our office, so there is no need to go to another dental provider for this service.
Unlike popular myths, root canals do not cause pain, they relieve pain.
The issue of missing teeth is a problem for many people, which makes dentures a wise choice. We focus on providing the best type of denture device for each person, including implant-supported dentures. Implant-supported dentures are anchored in place by surgically embedded dental implants.
Dentures can be snapped into the mouth without the need for adhesive creams or gels. This type of denture offers a significant number of benefits over traditional dentures.
Whether you need your wisdom teeth removed, or you have the need for extraction of another tooth, you will find that we make the procedure comfortable.
Our use of lasers to help us with the extraction process not only leads to more precise outcomes, but for faster healing. Lasers have truly changed the way that we are able to conduct family dentistry, and we encourage you to discover how valuable they can be for tooth extraction procedures.
The most common cause of sleep apnea is excess weight. During sleep, when the throat and tongue muscles are more relaxed, this soft tissue of the mouth and throat can cause the airway to become blocked and breathing repeatedly stops and starts.
Symptoms include snoring loudly and feeling tired even after a full night’s sleep.
