Healthy dental routine,
healthy smiles

Professional dental cleanings are important for maintaining great oral health. However, it is vital that you continue good dental hygiene at home as well.

Have the
ultimate smile

Our solutions are customized just for you.

Dental Hygiene

Our doctors recommend that you brush your teeth at least twice per day and floss daily. This helps prevent tooth decay, periodontal disease, and other oral health issues.

There are additional ways to help keep teeth strong and healthy. Toothpastes and mouth rinses with fluoride are available over-the-counter. Eating a balanced diet and limiting sugary snacks can also contribute to good oral health.

When you can, drink a glass of water after meals. This can help wash away sugars from foods and drinks. If something you eat or drink contains acids, such as sodas or candies, wait 30 minutes before brushing. This will allow your saliva time to neutralize the acids and protect your teeth.

Healthy dental hygiene habits can help keep your teeth strong and beautiful. If you have any questions about your current dental hygiene routine, please contact us.

Crafting smiles with our
personal touch.

Your smile is one of the first things a person will notice when you meet. If you have stained, dull or discolored teeth, teeth whitening may be a great option for you.

A smile you will
be proud of

Our solutions are customized just for you.

Teeth Whitening

Even healthy teeth discolor over time. The main causes of stained teeth are genetics, antibiotics, tobacco and certain foods. As we age, our teeth darken as well.

Teeth whitening is a simple and effective way to brighten your smile. You can look younger and feel more confident with a whiter smile.

Your teeth and gums must be healthy enough for whitening. Before recommending whitening, we will carefully evaluate your smile. Contact Optimal Dental Center for more information or to schedule a consultation with our doctors today.

For a Lifetime
Of Smiles

We provide excellent preventive care, including exams, cleanings and digital x-rays. Early detection of dental problems is essential to gain optimal oral health. The American Dental Association recommends that you follow a schedule of twice yearly cleanings and exams.

Making Top Quality
Dentistry Affordable

Our solutions are customized just for you.

Cleaning & Exams

The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends dental visits at least twice per year. Regular exams and professional cleanings can help to ensure optimal oral health. At Optimal Dental Center, our team consistently provides high-quality dental cleanings and thorough preventive exams.

Professional cleanings rid the teeth of harmful plaque and tartar build-up. This is important for preventing tooth decay, periodontal disease, and other oral health issues. Additionally, a professional cleaning by our hygienist may remove some surface stains. This can help keep your teeth looking whiter and brighter.

During your appointment, we will also:

  • Evaluate your overall oral health
  • Discuss oral hygiene practices and habits
  • Check your bite and jaw for any issues
  • Evaluate your risk of tooth decay, gum disease, oral cancers, and more
  • Evaluate existing tooth restorations
  • take dental x-rays if necessary
  • Regular professional dental cleanings and exams are essential for maintaining a healthy mouth and a beautiful smile.

Start
Healthy Habits Early

According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, your child should visit the dentist within six months after the presence of the first tooth or by his or her first birthday. Early oral examination aids in the detection of the early stages of tooth decay. Early detection is also essential to maintain good oral health.

Give Your Children,
The Right Experience

Our solutions are customized just for you.

Children
Dentistry Done Right

A lifetime of healthy teeth begins with good dental habits. Give your child a strong foundation by bringing them for an exam and cleaning twice each year. Encourage your child to listen to the dental team during their visit. Work with your child at home to improve their dental hygiene routine.

During each visit, we will gently clean your child’s teeth and remove any plaque or tartar. We will carefully examine their mouth and teeth for any potential issues. Regular cleanings and exams can help prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health issues.

Help your child have a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums. Contact Optimal Dental Center and request a dental exam and cleaning for your child.

Tooth Decay

Tooth decay has become the most common chronic childhood illness in the U.S. We will teach you and your child how to properly brush and floss their teeth as they grow. We will discuss dental hygiene habits and healthy food choices. We will teach your child to be our partner in keeping their mouth and teeth healthy.

Fluoride

We may recommend treating your child’s teeth with fluoride. This mineral can strengthen tooth enamel, making teeth more resistant to decay. Fluoride may be applied in office or used in certain toothpastes and mouth rinses.

Sealants

In some cases, we may recommend the use of dental sealants. Sealants are a protective coating applied to the chewing surfaces of molars. Recent studies have found that sealants can be highly effective in preventing tooth decay.

Everyone’s
Smile is Restorable

Restorative dentistry restores the strength and beauty of your smile. Whenever possible, we will preserve your natural teeth. When needed, we can also provide tooth replacement options that are both functional and beautiful

Now is the Time,
To Restore Your Smile

Our solutions are customized just for you.

Composite Fillings

Harmful bacteria on teeth can lead to decay. Untreated decay may cause further complications, such as pain or infection. Composite fillings are a safe, effective solution to help preserve your teeth.

Composite fillings are made of a tooth-colored, composite resin. This resin is strong, durable, and aesthetic. We gently remove decayed tissue and place your filling to help prevent further damage.

We can help you decide whether composite resin fillings are right for you. To request an appointment, click here.

Bonding

Bonding is a cosmetic and restorative treatment option. Composite resin materials are bonded directly onto the teeth. This both restores function and provides a more aesthetic appearance.

Bonding may be recommended for one or more of the following:

To repair chipped or cracked teeth
To improve discolored teeth
To close gaps between teeth
To lengthen one or more teeth
To reshape one or more teeth
To protect an exposed tooth root

Bonding is a safe and effective solution that can often be completed in just one visit. To find out if bonding may be right for you, contact Optimal Dental Center.

Crowns

Over time, teeth begin to weaken. This leaves them more susceptible to problems such as decay, cracks or discoloration. A dental crown can renew the appearance and function of a tooth.

Dental crowns can:

Protect a weak tooth from breaking
Hold a cracked tooth together
Cover and support a damaged or decayed tooth
Cover a severely discolored tooth
Restore a broken or severely worn tooth
Also, dental crowns are often used in conjunction with root canal therapy, dental implants or as an anchor for a bridge.

Crowns are typically made from porcelain to provide both strength and a natural appearance. Our CEREC technology can create your crown and allow us to place it in a single visit. Once treatment is complete, continue routine brushing and flossing. Keep regular office visits to help your crown last many years.

For more information or to request an appointment, contact Optimal Dental Center.

Bridges

A dental bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth. With this type of restoration, one or more neighboring teeth may be crowned and used to anchor the replacement.

Tooth replacement helps avoid shifting of surrounding teeth into gaps. If left untreated, structural changes to your mouth and jaw may occur. This can cause you difficulty with eating, speech, and other functions.

A dental bridge is custom-made to match your natural teeth in color, size, and shape. We use strong and durable materials for your restoration. With appropriate at home and professional care, your dental bridge may last for years.

If you are considering replacing a tooth, contact us to schedule a consultation.

Dentures

Dentures are a removable replacement for one or more missing teeth. They are used to restore both function and aesthetics. Dentures are custom-fabricated to fit your mouth and match the appearance of your natural teeth. The fit of your dentures may be adjusted as needed to ensure comfort and proper function.

Complete dentures replace the full upper or lower set of teeth. Partial dentures are used to replace one or more teeth when some natural teeth remain. This prevents teeth from shifting into the space left by missing teeth.

You should clean your dentures regularly using a soft bristle toothbrush and a non-abrasive cleanser. Keep your regular dental appointments as recommended. Dentures should be replaced every 5-10 years. Ask our doctors to evaluate whether your dentures should be refit or replaced.

Let us help to restore your smile today. Contact Optimal Dental Center today to see if dentures are right for you.

Prevention,
Diagnosis & Treatment

Periodontics involves the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is the leading cause of tooth loss. At our dental office, we will gently evaluate your gums and overall oral health, and if necessary, will make recommendations for treatment.

Improving the World
One Smile at a Time

Our solutions are customized just for you.

Periodontics

Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is an inflammation and infection of the gum tissues. It includes the stages commonly known as gingivitis and periodontitis. Periodontal disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults.

When plaque and tartar are left untreated on teeth and gums, gum disease may develop. You can reduce your risk of gum disease by brushing twice and flossing once every day. You should also have a dental exam and professional cleaning at least twice each year.

Gingivitis includes a variety mild to moderate symptoms, such as:

  • Red, swollen gums
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Gums bleeding from normal brushing or eating
  • Chronic halitosis (bad breath)
  • Difficulty or pain chewing
  • Periodontitis is a more advanced form of gum disease. In this case, gums begin to pull away from teeth, creating small “pockets” along the gum line. Tooth loss, bone loss, and damage to gums and soft tissues can occur with periodontitis.

The most common treatment for gum disease is known as deep cleaning or scaling and root planing. Our hygienist can perform this gentle and effective removal of tartar, calculus, and infected tissue.

Common risk factors for gum disease include poor oral hygiene habits, diabetes, smoking, and hormonal changes. Some medications can also increase your likelihood of developing gum disease. Many recent studies have found that untreated gum disease negatively impacts other aspects of your overall health. This is especially common for patients with cardiovascular disease or diabetes.

We’ll Take
The Pain Away

Root canal therapy removes harmful bacteria from your tooth, healing infection, ending your pain and improving your health. When decay or a crack has reached the nerve of a tooth, a root canal is necessary.

We’re Here
To Ease Your Pain

Our solutions are customized just for you.

Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy treats the center, or pulp, of a tooth that is inflamed, infected or dead. The pulp is a soft substance consisting of nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue.

Symptoms of infection include visible injury or swelling, sensitivity to temperature, or pain in the tooth and gums. If you experience any of these symptoms, contact Optimal Dental Center for a consultation.

Root canal therapy involves removing the pulp from the tooth chamber and canals. We then clean the canals with a disinfecting solution. During your root canal therapy, we may provide local anesthesia or sedation to ensure your complete comfort.

After treatment, we may place a temporary filling to protect your tooth until your restoration is complete. Your tooth may feel sensitive for the first few days. This discomfort may be relieved with over-the-counter or prescribed pain medications, as directed. Avoid chewing on the treated tooth until you have your full restoration. If a problem occurs, contact Optimal Dental Center.

Root canal therapy can help preserve your tooth for a lifetime. Contact our office today for a consultation with one of our expert doctors. Orthodontic treatment is used to treat all types of patients, from adults to young teens. It is used to realign the teeth into a more natural position. It is also used to straighten teeth in order to correct any imbalance in the bite.

Orthodontics Impacts
Your Health, Appearance, & More.

Crooked, unevenly spaced, or misaligned teeth are harder to keep clean. This makes them more prone to tooth decay and periodontal disease.

Straight, properly aligned teeth are easier to keep clean and provide a more attractive appearance. A straight, healthy smile helps to boost self-esteem, self-confidence, and your self-image.

Duration

The length of your orthodontic treatment will depend on your individual plan. During your consultation with our doctor, we will discuss your options. Once you select your treatment, we will estimate its length.

There are factors that can affect the duration of your treatment. Some of these include:

  • Early Orthodontic Intervention: If you had early intervention, some steps have already been completed. This may shorten the time you need for this treatment.
  • Type of Treatment: Depending on your needs, you may have braces, elastics, aligners, or other options. Which treatment you receive will affect its length.
  • Compliance: Following our instructions will allow your treatment to work more quickly.
Our Solution

At Optimal Dental Center, we offer advanced solutions for your treatment. Our practice is a leader in comfortable and accelerated orthodontics. Depending on your needs, we may recommend:

  • Traditional Braces
  • Six Month Smiles®

Remarkably Gentle

Sedation Dentistry uses medication to help you relax for a better dental care experience. Sedation dentistry can even help patients with severe dental anxiety.

Progressive Methods.
Caring Approach

Our solutions are customized just for you.

Sedation Dentistry

Sedation dentistry offers many benefits to meet your individual needs. Sedation allows your body to relax more completely. This increases the effectiveness of local anesthesia. Sedation dentistry reduces the sensation of passing time. This can be very useful if you need complex or multiple treatments in a single sitting. It also prevents your muscles from stiffening or becoming sore due to spending extended periods of time in one position.

Your sedation is closely monitored by experienced dental professionals to ensure your safety and comfort at all times.

Oral Conscious Sedation, or OCS, provides a state of deep relaxation. Though you are still able to stand, walk, or answer questions, you remain in a calm and drowsy state throughout the treatment. With OCS, many patients have found they have little memory of the procedure after the fact. For patients with dental anxiety, this can be a great benefit.

With OCS, you will need someone to provide your transportation on the day of your procedure. While there are no lingering after effects, the sedative effects of these options can take up to 24 hours to fully diminish.

Your safety is our top priority. At your appointment, be sure to tell us:

  • Any prescription medications or over-the-counter medications you are taking
  • Any herbal or nutritional supplements you are using
  • Any allergies you have, particularly medication reactions
  • Any health conditions you have
  • Any questions or concerns you may have about your treatment or about sedation dentistry

For more information about using sedation dentistry with your next treatment, contact Optimal Dental Center.
