What sets your practice apart?
It is our personal service. We personally attend to all patients or are recommended to specialists, that are part of the team, for specific treatment.
What is involved in changing old fillings? Is it dangerous?
It is a common belief that changing (removing) old fillings is dangerous. Many people are concerned about inhaling, even swallowing, old amalgams (fillings) as they are removed. This isn’t something to be worried about. The mercury that was used to prepare the filling actually forms a new alloy or component (amalgam) with different chemical and physical properties. To reduce the risk of swallowing debris during the procedure, we use a strong vacuum to pick up any debris.
How long will my treatment take?
It really depends on your specific needs. One of the limiting factors is the laboratory time required to produce crowns, bridges, etc. Plan on 1-2 weeks for crowns, veneers and bridges. Implants need 4 to 6 months (osseointegration time) between surgery and rehabilitation.
