Your First Visit at Orchard Dental Associates
EMPOWERING PATIENTS TO DECIDE WHAT’S BEST FOR THEM
Orchard Dental Associates has a patient-centered approach. We believe that you as the patient are always the best person to decide what treatment works best for you. At your first appointment, you will meet the team, have your X-rays taken, and receive an oral health evaluation. We have a VELscope in every room for thorough oral cancer screenings. If your gum tissue is in good health, we include your first dental cleaning in this appointment too. However, we will arrange another appointment for a deep cleaning if periodontal therapy is necessary.
We can also perform any needed fillings the same day as your initial evaluation. We use tooth-colored filling material for natural-looking restorations that blend seamlessly with your smile. Our dentists use a Solea laser, which means there is no need for numbing injections.
Same Day Dental Crowns
FOR OPTIMAL CONVENIENCE AND COMFORT
A damaged tooth can be painful. A dental crown is an ideal way to protect a severely damaged tooth that cannot be fixed with a simple filling. It strengthens and supports your remaining natural tooth structure to keep it functioning as it should. We understand that waiting weeks for a crown is not ideal, which is why we proudly offer same day dental crowns. We use an intraoral scanner and CEREC system to complete the entire crown process in a single visit. We also offer photobiomodulation therapy (PBMT) to rapidly reduce inflammation and pain while speeding up healing time. You’ll be smiling again in no time!
Our General Dentistry Services Help You
Root Canal Therapy
TREATMENT TO REPAIR DAMAGE INSIDE THE TOOTH
Sometimes the pulp inside a tooth becomes inflamed or infected. Our root canal treatment approach removes the damaged tissue, delivers a thorough decontamination of the canal system, and seals it to prevent future problems. Treating the source of infection relieves the pain and saves the tooth from extraction. At Orchard Dental Associates, we use a Fotona laser for root canal treatments, which delivers a faster, more comfortable patient experience.
THE KEY TO HEALTHY GUMS
Periodontal disease can be painful. From gingivitis to periodontal disease, our team can recommend a course of treatment suited to your individual needs. We use Waterlase and Fotona lasers as part of our periodontal therapyto safely disinfect the gums and promote fast healing.
WHEN SAVING A TOOTH ISN’T AN OPTION
At Orchard Dental Associates, we will do everything we can to save a damaged tooth. Sometimes, however, it’s just not possible. If you have severe gum disease or if a tooth is broken beyond repair, you may need an extraction. Your comfort is our top priority during extractions, and we will make sure you are completely at ease throughout the procedure. Your dentist will also explain what options you have for replacing the missing tooth.
The doctors and staff are amazing! The atmosphere that they create for their patients is very comforting. I will definitely continue to come here for my regular cleanings and treatment.
Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Disorder Treatment
SAY GOODBYE TO PAIN AND TENDERNESS.
TMJ disorders can be caused by bruxism (teeth grinding), injury, or even genetics. Jaw pain can quickly lead to difficulty chewing and eating. The good news is that TMJ disorders are treatable. At Orchard Dental Associates, we can help you determine the cause of your jaw pain and recommend the right course of treatment. If your bite is the problem, Invisalign can fix the misalignment. A custom nightguard helps prevent further damage by forcing facial muscles to relax when you grind or clench at night. Botox is another useful treatment that can help to relax the jaw area, reduce pain, and relieve muscle tension.
Snoring and Sleep Apnea Treatments
HELPING YOU TO GET A GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP
Snoring and sleep apnea can negatively impact your health, lifestyle, and relationships. Orchard Dental Associates helps treat these conditions so you can get a good night’s sleep and start enjoying your life again. For snoring, our team creates custom oral devices to limit jaw and tongue movement. We also offer laser therapy, which helps to tighten the airway and reduce loose tissue that contributes to snoring. This prevents your airway from being obstructed while you sleep. If you have sleep apnea, our experienced dental team will customize a treatment plan specifically to suit your condition and individual needs. If you haven’t been diagnosed with sleep apnea, we will refer you to a sleep specialist so you and your team will know for sure the best path to healing and treating any sleep disordered breathing issues you may be experiencing.
USING THE LATEST TECHNOLOGY FOR THE MOST COMFORTABLE TREATMENT EXPERIENCE
We use laser dentistry for many of our treatments here at Orchard Dental Associates. Laser dentistry allows for treatment that is not only faster but also more comfortable. Plus, it reduces both bleeding and recovery time. Lasers are great for quickly and painlessly preparing teeth for fillings and crowns, as well as for use in periodontal therapy and treatment of snoring and sleep apnea.
