• General Dentistry
    • Every new patient experience begins with a thorough checkup that includes routine dental screening, periodontal screening as well as oral cancer screens. We’ve got the most advanced tools and technology and an experienced staff to make your dental checkup a breezer.

      EXAMS AND X-RAYS

      X-rays let us see images of your teeth and gums to spot decay, damage to the bones and supporting teeth and undetected dental injuries. They are still the best diagnostic tool we have. Today’s x-rays use very little radiation, and at J4H we use the very safest RVG, where the radiation is 25% of conventional dental x-rays. These are even safe for use with children. They can also detect tumors, cysts or abscesses.

      We use the latest technologies to clean your teeth and remove tartar above and below the gum line. Even though it uses ultrasonic waves to clean your teeth, it’s so gentle that it can be used for deep cleaning and gum therapy without the need for anesthesia. We also use soft tissue laser to remove decay when preparing a tooth for restoration and to treat gum disease. Laser has transformed nearly every branch of medicine and dentistry is no different. When we catch cavities this early, there’s minimal drilling and the resultant restorations are much smaller.

      ORAL CANCER SCREENS

      Oral cancer screens are part of every checkup. We inspect your mouth, tongue and gums for any signs of oral cancer.

      PERIODONTAL SCREENING

      Unhealthy gums can lead to tooth and bone loss – reason enough for careful screenings for periodontal disease. Moreover, gum disease is also linked to a broad spectrum of serious health conditions such as cardiovascular and other diseases, diabetes, some cancers and Alzheimer’s disease. Gum disease has also been linked with preterm and low birth weight babies.

      PREVENTATIVE DENTISTRY

      We advise you on how to care for your teeth to avoid cavities and gum disease, not to mention trips to the dentist! Brushing, flossing and oral irrigators are an important part of every home care regimen. Other preventative treatments include dental sealants and/or fluoride applications.

      METAL-FREE DENTISTRY

      Gone are the days where silver amalgam fillings were ruling the filling world of dentistry. Today, various health hazards like mercury toxicity and non-esthetic (black) appearance of fillings are fast being replaced by esthetic tooth colored filling. We fill cavities with tooth-colored fillings that are made of porcelain or composite materials. Porcelain and composite fillings don’t expand and contract to allow bacteria underneath them the way metal fillings do. Overall on top of being more aesthetically appealing, the porcelain and composite fillings are safer and healthier for you. While silver fillings can weaken the natural tooth, white fillings bond to the tooth thereby strengthening the remaining natural structure.

      EXTRACTIONS

      While we do everything possible to preserve your natural teeth, it may at times be necessary to remove one or more that are beyond repair. In some cases, periodontal disease is too advanced to save the tooth; in others there might be too much decay or the tooth requires root canal treatment, but is not strong enough to remain intact during the procedure. In other cases, a tooth may be cracked or damaged and require extraction. We can replace the missing tooth (or teeth) with a dental implant, bridge or dentures.

      DENTURES

      We can fit you with full or partial dentures to replace missing teeth. Unlike dental implants, dentures are removable. Full and partial dentures will support the structure of the face and prevent it from sagging; they also give you the obvious benefit of being able to chew and enjoy food again.
