Call Sleep Dentistry Defined for every day dental care.
Whether you need a cleaning, x-rays, or a filling, Sleep Dentistry Defined is the perfect place to start for every day dental care. We don’t judge you – even if you haven’t been to the dentist in a while – we just want you to have the happiest, healthiest smile possible! We encourage twice-annual checkups and cleanings, paired with good day-to-day hygiene, as that’s the best way to catch small problems before they turn into big ones. Because of our skill at more complex procedures, too, when a bigger issue does come up, we can help you make an informed decision on how to fix it.
Besides brushing and flossing your teeth at home, semi-annual cleanings at our office are one of the best ways to make sure your smile stays beautiful and healthy! It gives us a chance to deep-clean your teeth and gums, removing all the plaque and tartar that brushing and flossing might miss. We also give your mouth a quick physical exam, and check for small problems before they turn into big ones. We will also polish your teeth to make it harder for new plaque to form, and apply a fluoride treatment as an additional protectant against plaque.
We can’t always see dental issues with the naked eye, so we take annual X-rays to look for hidden problems inside your mouth. X-rays are perfect for spotting deep cavities, the roots of each tooth, your jawbone, and even teeth that are still forming below the gumline. The most common types of intraoral X-rays that we use are periapical, bite-wing and occlusal X-rays. And with panoramic X-rays, we can even see your nasal area and sinuses to see if there is a blockage or something else that may be affecting your dental health.
When you have a cavity removed, a filling is used to seal the tooth and prevent bacteria from reentering and causing further decay. A filling can also sometimes be used to seal a cracked, broken or worn tooth for the same reason – to prevent decay and keep your mouth healthy! Dr. Lampee and our hygienists know that your gums and teeth can be sensitive, and we take great care to make sure you’re comfortable while you get the dental care that you need.
Root canals are needed when a tooth is badly infected and needs the nerve ends and core of the tooth removed to prevent disease spreading to the rest of the mouth. After the dead tissue and bacteria is removed, we fill the tooth and place a crown to make sure the tooth is strong and sturdy. In the past, a root canal could take multiple appointments to complete, but with today’s technology it can be done in just one visit!
Emergency Dental Care
We understand that some dental issues can’t wait, so we’ll do our best to see you quickly – often the same day you call – and get you the care you need. Tooth and mouth pain can start from a variety of factors. Some of these include large cavities, nerve infections, and abscesses. The pain can often start small, and then come and go with hot and cold drinks and food. Often it will slowly build up for a month or more, and then it will finally peak. If you’re experiencing these symptoms, please call immediately so that we can help! If this is a life-threatening emergency, please call 911.
