Dental implants involve a surgical replacement of tooth roots. They are mostly made of titanium and are placed into the jaw bone and allowed to integrate with the bone over a few months serving as a replacement for a tooth root. Crowns can then be placed on top of implants to fill in gaps of missing or extracted teeth.

Comprehensive treatment plan
During your first visit,we will perform a thorough examination assisted by digital X-rays and will assess your dental needs. We will then devise a plan of treatment with you that will be specific to your individual needs.
Digital radiography is X-ray imaging with the use of digital X-ray sensors. This process is more time efficient and produces enhanced images at a lower radiation dose than traditional film, making it a safer and more comfortable experience for our patients.
Dental cleanings are an important component of oral hygiene that should be performed by your dentist at least once every 6 months. They involve the removal of dental plaque and tartar from teeth with the purpose of preventing cavities, gingivitis and periodontal disease.
Deep cleanings are recommended when patients show signs of gum disease, such as excess tartar, swollen or bleeding gums, receding gums, persistent bad breath, loosening teeth or pus around gums and teeth.
Restorations are performed to remove decay and restore teeth back to their original appearance. There are two basic types of fillings: silver or white. White fillings or composite resins are the most common fillings used today. They are tooth colored and provide good durability and esthetics.
Preventive Dentistry is the practice of maintaining the health of the mouth, teeth and gums. At Capital Dentistry we strive to ensure that our patients maintain optimal oral health to help prevent cavities, gum disease, enamel wear and more. Some aspects of preventive dentistry include 6 month check ups, sealants, Fluoride applications and more.
Dental sealants are a dental treatment intended to prevent tooth decay. It is a relatively quick and absolutely painless process that involves application of a thin layer of sealant on top of the deep grooves of teeth. It is mostly used in children and adolescents to prevent against tooth decay in developing permanent teeth.
Fluoride applications help to strengthen the tooth enamel and stop the decay process in cases where good oral hygiene routines are followed.
