When you’re considering who will provide your family’s Plantation dental care, you want to know that you won’t have to travel to 4 or 5 different offices to receive your care. We understand that you’re looking for a dental office that can help every member of your family – through each of their life stages.
Here are just some of the options you can enjoy when you visit the team at Elite Dental & Aesthetics.
At Elite Dental & Aesthetics, we work with an exceptional team of ceramists to craft veneers that have a beautiful, translucent appearance consistent with natural teeth. The smile you've always dreamed of can be yours in as little as two appointments with porcelain veneers. Perhaps the most versatile of all cosmetic dentistry procedures, dental veneers may solve most or even all of your cosmetic dental issues. You may have worn tooth enamel, uneven tooth alignment, excessive spacing, chips and cracks in your teeth. Dental veneers can be used to change the shape, length, alignment or overall color of your teeth. Veneers are ultra-thin, tooth-colored porcelain shells that are custom-made for your teeth.
Root Canal Therapy
Infected tissues in the tooth pulp can cause severe pain and eventually lead to the loss of the tooth. Root canal therapy, or a “root canal” is designed to remove the infected tissue with the goal of saving the tooth. In the past, before the advent of root canal therapy, the only treatment for affected teeth was to remove them. Today, root canal therapy is a common procedure that has a very high success rate. In the last ten to twenty years, there have been great innovations in the art and science of root canal therapy, and we strive to stay up-to-date with the latest diagnostic and treatment protocols.
Routine Extractions: At our office, we believe that tooth extraction is the last resort. An extraction is indicated when a tooth is so severely decayed, broken down, or infected it cannot be saved. Our doctors can help you determine whether a tooth needs to be extracted and will remove it safely and comfortably. The different options of tooth replacement will be discussed with you. Many times, a tooth can be replaced with an implant or a bridge.
Wisdom Teeth Extractions: Although most people develop and grow 32 permanent adult teeth, many times their jaws are too small to accommodate the four wisdom teeth. When inadequate space prevents the teeth from erupting, they are called impacted. This indicates their inability to erupt into the proper position for chewing and cleaning.
We will need to see you for a consultation to determine if you will benefit from wisdom tooth removal. A special x-ray of your mouth and jaws (Panorex) will be taken to determine if your wisdom teeth are impacted if there is room for them to erupt, and how difficult it will be to have them removed.
Laser Gum Treatment
Our office has recently acquired the award-winning dental laser, NV® Microlaser. This top-of-the-line soft tissue laser is the 2015 winner amongst all soft-tissue lasers according to the Dental Advisor independent dental product ratings. The NV Microlaser can gently and effectively treat gum disease and other gum conditions, such as gum overgrowth over wisdom teeth. It produces a very narrow intense beam of light energy. This beam of light has the ability to remove infected gum tissues in a periodontal pocket or an overgrowth of gum in certain areas in the mouth. Lasers have become an invaluable asset in our office because very precise treatments can be performed with minimal bleeding and swelling due to the laser’s exceptional ability to seal blood vessels and nerve endings.
We use our laser to:
- Reduce or even remove cold sores
- Assist in periodontal treatment and some oral surgeries
- Reduce pain and bleeding during the procedure
- Minimize post-op discomfort and decrease healing time, so you are back to feeling yourself in no time
