1. General Dentistry:
The primary care of teeth and gums. It focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of a wide variety of conditions, disorders and diseases affecting the teeth, gums and the maxillofacial (associated with the jaw and face) region of the body.
2. Children’s Dentistry:
As early as 1 year old it is recommended that children begin to be under a dentists care. Early prevention means long term health for your child’s teeth, gums, and overall general dental health. The first visit is what we call a ‘fun visit’. Your child will be shown the office and what happens in each room. Then Dr. Fiscus will ‘count their teeth’ in order to check for decay and general health of mouth. It is an easy going visit where things are clearly explained and your child has a great experience at the dental office. We also offer the full range of restorative dentistry for children with the same approach of keeping it light, fun, and full of information.
3. Cosmetic Dentistry:
The branch of dentistry dealing with the appearance of the teeth. Comprehensive oral care that combines art and science to optimally improve dental health, aesthetics, and function.
Teeth Whitening: refers to the practice of bleaching the stains that collect over time in the dentin located under the outer tooth enamel. We use a very effective home bleaching system by Opalescence. The whitening lasts from one to three years and can be retouched periodically. We also have disposable take home trays (can also be done while you’re here) that take only 15 minutes per application. We have several bleaching solutions that will meet your financial and time needs.
4. TMD/Jaw Joint:
Full mouth splints, night guards, and many other appliance therapy solutions based on what Dr. Fiscus (after full examination) determines is most suited for your jaw health and situation.
5. Dental Implants:
A dental implant is a metal device designed to replace missing teeth. The device is usually made out of titanium and is surgically placed into the jaw bone where the tooth is missing.
6. Veneers (this is a branch of cosmetic dentistry):
A thin layer of porcelain material placed on the tooth surface, either to improve the aesthetics of the tooth, or to protect a damaged tooth surface.
7. Restorative Dentistry:
Is the study, diagnosis and integrated management of disease of the teeth and their supporting structures and the rehabilitation of the dentition to functional and aesthetic requirements of the individual. This may occasionally include rehabilitation of the entire mouth.
8. Sleep Apnea/Snoring:
Sleep apnea: a sleep disorder characterized by a temporary cessation (a temporary or complete stopping) of breath caused by a periodic paralysis of the respiratory muscles, cutting off airflow through the nose and mouth. Sleep apnea is potentially a life threatening problem and often requires evaluation by a physician and/or a sleep study.
Snoring: more than 45% of all adults snore on the occasion and 25% snore all the time. During sleep the muscles at the back of the throat relax, which allows a structure known as the soft palate to partially block the air passages. The sound of snoring is caused by air trying to get around the blockage as the air passes.
Sleep apnea/snoring devices: We have several options (depending upon diagnosis) to alleviate the pain and aggravation associated with these disorders.
9. Teeth Cleaning:
Is the removal of soft debris, stains, and hard deposits (calculus or tartar) on the teeth that cannot be removed by brushing and flossing. It is one part of a complete program of oral hygiene.
