Initial Oral Examination
Your initial oral examination includes a visual exam, charting, cancer screening, gum measurements, diagnosis and treatment recommendations. We will also take x-rays, which includes the panoramic x-ray for proper diagnosis of the anterior (front) and posterior (back) teeth as well as the bite-wing x-ray series for proper diagnosis of proximal decay of posterior teeth. To be a patient in our practice, we require that you receive dental x-rays. We will, though, work with you to minimize x-ray exposure and tailor to individual requirements.
Dr. Yaskin has been surgically placing dental implants since the year 2000. He has excellent experience and success in this area. We have found dental implants to be an affordable option for most patients. Dental implants are definitely the treatment of choice for tooth replacements among our clientele. We will help place an implant for a missing single tooth, missing multiple teeth, or to secure or replace a removable appliance. Our patients feel great in being able to add a tooth in our office with state of the art titanium implant.
Our state-of-the-art, in-office Power Bleaching system will make your teeth whiter in less than 45 minutes. Another option is our home bleaching system you take with you for results in 2 weeks. You can also consider a combination program of both systems for optimal, long-term results.
Crowns and Veneers
Our office works very hard to bring the best crowns and veneers to our patients. We use the best materials available. We almost exclusively use all-ceramic crowns now. Ceramic technololgy has progressed such that super strong, durable and highly esthetic crowns can be made from all-porcelain crowns.
Tooth Colored Resin Fillings
Tooth-colored filings that are light cured to match your teeth. We have not placed amalgam mercury-silver filling material in over 15 years. Why eventually expose our ocean and ground water to more mercury? Well done resin fillings now have similar durability.
We perform root canals on anterior and premolar teeth. We have been doing them consistently for 19 years. The tough root canal jobs we refer to our trusted Endodontist specialists.
You should have a standard cleaning at least twice a year. A periodontal treatment includes an Adult Prophy (basic cleaning). If it has been over a year since your last cleaning, possible treatment will include either Periodontal Scaling (deeper) or Root Planning and Scaling (requires anesthetic). We often like to work with Periodontists in some advanced cases.
Whether you are an athlete or casual sports participant, you should wear a mouth guard to protect your teeth. If you grind your teeth while you sleep, a bite guard will help reduce symptoms of TMJ. We custom make mouth guards in both soft and hard materials.
Removable Dental Prosthesis
For missing teeth, we can make full dentures or removable partial dentures for you. Making great dentures takes caring and experience. We have that. Our experience leads us to make the right design for each individual. Our caring insures that the person involved is happy and satisfied with their dental prosthetic.
