Teeth Cleaning

Professional teeth cleaning is necessary to prevent the build-up of tartar and plaque, which can discolor teeth, cause gum and bone issues, and lead to decay or tooth loss. Regular cleanings, typically recommended twice a year, are crucial for maintaining oral health, as they remove accumulations that can’t be handled by brushing and flossing alone, and help in early detection and prevention of oral health problems.

Oral Cancer Screening

Oral cancer screenings are crucial as they enable early detection of cancerous and precancerous conditions, significantly improving the chances of successful treatment. Ivy Lane Dentistry is equipped with the expertise and tools to identify early signs of oral cancer, including unusual lesions and tissue changes in the mouth. Regular screenings are advised for everyone, not just those at higher risk due to habits like smoking or excessive drinking. Early diagnosis through these screenings is key to effective treatment, making them an essential part of dental check-ups.

Dental Sealants

Sealants are a protective coating for teeth, especially molars, that can significantly reduce the risk of decay and cavities, acting like a raincoat by keeping food and bacteria away from tooth surfaces. They are particularly beneficial for children and adults, with the process being quick, painless, and effective in preventing early decay from worsening. While sealants contain a minimal amount of BPA and are generally free of side effects, they are a valuable preventive measure and are often covered by dental plans, lasting several years before needing reapplication.

Emergency Dentistry

Ivy Lane Dentistry is always ready to assist patients with dental emergencies, offering immediate, high-quality care. Patients are encouraged to call ahead for emergency visits so the team can prepare and possibly schedule a same-day appointment, although availability may vary. The clinic offers various sedation options, including IV sedation, to ease the stress of emergency situations. Additionally, Ivy Lane Dentistry provides affordable care solutions and tooth replacement options, ensuring that financial concerns don’t hinder patients from receiving necessary emergency or routine dental care.

Dental Fillings

Dental fillings are necessary to restore the integrity and function of teeth damaged by cavities or decay, preventing further damage and maintaining oral health. They effectively fill the gaps caused by tooth decay, stopping the progression of decay and alleviating discomfort. To prevent further complications, we emphasize early treatment and offer convenient scheduling for these essential procedures.

Root Canals

Root canal therapy is a crucial treatment for preserving teeth that have infected or damaged dental pulp, often being the last resort to avoid extraction. Common signs indicating the need for this treatment include severe pain, increased sensitivity, tooth discoloration, and swollen gums. The procedure involves taking x-rays, numbing the area, removing infected material, and sealing the tooth to prevent further infection. Ivy Lane Dentistry prioritizes patient comfort and emphasizes its commitment to helping patients maintain their natural teeth.

Teeth Extractions

Tooth extraction is considered only when necessary, with the priority being to preserve natural teeth. Common reasons for extraction include impacted wisdom teeth, which don’t affect chewing or speech, and teeth damaged by trauma or infection. The extraction process varies in complexity, with some procedures being straightforward while others, like surgical extractions, may require an incision and higher levels of sedation. Patient comfort is paramount, and post-procedure medications are provided to ease discomfort, ensuring a smooth recovery.

Unlike one-size-fits-all over-the-counter mouthguards, custom guards are tailored from impressions of your teeth, offering a superior fit, comfort, and effectiveness. This level of customization in mouthguards is crucial for long-term oral health, protection, and overall well-being.
