Dental implants are the most effective way to replace missing teeth. Your dental implant restoration will replace both the missing tooth and missing root, offering you the best of both worlds – oral health benefits that restore your ability to chew and bite properly as well as aesthetic benefits that restore a beautiful smile.

Missing teeth can have a serious impact on the health and appearance of your smile. If left untreated, the neighboring teeth may shift to fill in the gap, creating alignment issues with your bite. Missing teeth can also increase your risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and bone loss down the road. The gaps left by missing teeth can mar an otherwise beautiful smile. Dental bridges are an excellent option to replace missing teeth. They are an effective alternative if you are not a suitable candidate for dental implants, and they provide you with a more stable restoration than dentures.

A root canal is a procedure performed to repair and save a tooth which has become infected. Dr. Y will remove the damaged nerve and pulp from the tooth, clean the infected area, and seal the tooth to protect it from further damage. Root canal treatment can prevent the infected tooth from becoming abscessed, a condition occurring when a puss-filled pocked develops near your tooth’s root. An abscessed tooth can potentially lead to serious health conditions if not properly treated.

Teeth extractions are a fairly common procedure. For example, wisdom teeth often cause problems as they are trying to protrude through the gums. When a wisdom tooth is impacted, it means the tooth is coming in at an angle and not straight through the gum line. This can cause pain, the tooth can come in unevenly, or the tooth may only emerge partially.

Patient Testimonials

I was very happy with my first appt. with Dr. Y. She was kind and explained options for my fallen-off crown for now and perhaps for future treatment. I’d return to her in a min. She also has a nice and personal receptionist/secretary.

Moved from MD to VA and needed to find a dentist to take care of a couple of broken fillings. I had two fillings replaced with white fillings and had some bonding done to a tooth that I had worn down from over zealous brushing. Dr. Y was very thorough, gentle and I hardly felt anything at all. She’s an excellent dentist and I’m so glad that I found her.
