We believe that prevention is the best treatment of all. We therefore provide excellent preventive care, including exams, prophylactic cleanings, and digital x-rays. Early detection of dental problems is essential to gain and maintain optimal oral health. We support the position of American Dental Association that patients should follow a schedule of twice yearly recare cleanings and exams.
Oral Cancer Screening
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. By acclimating your child to the dental office early, you help us foster good lifetime dental health habits. Allegiance Dental Associates wants to be your child’s “Dental Home” for unexpected emergencies and routine dental health.
If you have ever found yourself hiding your smile, avoiding photos, or covering your mouth because you’re unhappy with the appearance of your teeth, it may be time to consider our cosmetic smile solutions. We offer a range of services to give you the dazzling smile of your dreams.
Restorative dentistry is used to restore the strength and beauty of your smile. If you’ve been suffering from pain caused by decay or other health conditions, you may benefit from restorative therapy. We offer conservative treatment solutions to preserve or enhance your natural teeth, as well as tooth replacement options. We can make your smile comfortable, confident, and stable and do it in a cost- effective manner.
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. Although periodontal disease cannot be totally cured, it CAN be controlled. Our aid, when supplemented by excellent home care on your part, will help you maintain your oral health and prevent tooth and bone loss. In addition, there is a solid body of scientific evidence linking periodontal disease and other systemic diseases, such as heart disease and diabetes.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy (Endodontics) removes harmful bacteria from inside 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. At Allegiance Dental Associates, we use state of the art, nickel titanium rotary instruments in conjunction with digital x-rays for the fastest treatment possible.
If a tooth cannot be saved through restoration, root canal therapy, or other treatment, extraction may, unfortunately, be necessary. Our experienced team can handle your tooth removal needs and ensure your comfort throughout your treatment and beyond.
TMD, or temporomandibular disorders, refer to a variety of symptoms including stiffness, discomfort, and/or pain in and around the jaw joint. We will work with you to diagnose and treat symptoms of TMD/ TMJ in the most conservative methods modern science can offer.
Sedation dentistry uses medication to help you enter a highly relaxed state during treatment, providing a more positive dental care experience, even for patients who suffer from severe dental anxiety or dental phobia. We offer prescription sedatives and Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas) to those patients who desire it.
