Our office offers various restorative procedures to maintain a healthy dentition. If decay (caries) is detected, (using diagnostics such as radiographs, Diagnodent (laser detection) and visual examination), local anesthesia is administered, and the decay is removed. If sufficient tooth structure remains, a filling is placed (amalgam or composite). If the decay undermines or threatens the integrity of the remaining tooth structure, a crown (cap) is recommended.
Dr. Rogol offers CEREC crowns (see technology). This is accomplished in a single visit, usually in less than two hours, without the use of impressions or temporary material. We also offer fixed bridgework, as well as removable partial and full dentures.
For those patients desiring replacement of missing teeth with a fixed, permanent solution, we can refer to a specialist for the placement of an implant, which we then restore with a crown. This avoids having to involve surrounding teeth, such as in the placement of a bridge.
Other services include fabrication of occlusal guards which protect teeth from the effects of grinding (bruxism) and clenching. Sports guards can also be made for the athletes of the family.
We also offer Uphoria in office bleaching and cosmetic bonding, to enhance your smile and appearance.
