Exams & Cleanings

Early detection and preventative care are key to most successful dental treatment.  Your natural teeth are going to be far stronger, more functional, and much more comfortable than any dental appliance or restoration.  Because of this, Dr. Nguyen believes in the importance of educating her patients to ensure that they are prepared to make the best decisions regarding their oral health.  We will help you develop healthy habits that can lead to years of beautiful smiles.  We take the time to make sure that you understand your role in the ongoing battle to keep your smile clean and healthy.

Professional dental cleanings help to prevent tooth decay and preserve and strengthen your gums and teeth.  Good dental habits at home are a key part of your overall dental health as well. It is important that you visit our office regularly to keep your mouth healthy and your smile looking clean and beautiful.  The bacteria that is present in gum disease is also found in the plaque that causes clogged arteries and heart disease.  This bacteria can enter your blood stream through your mouth, so it is important to keep your teeth and mouth clean and healthy.  We recommend that you visit our office at least every six months for a professional dental cleaning.  Dr. Nguyen and her team will make sure that you get a thorough cleaning so you can have that “straight from the dentist clean” feeling. Call our office today to schedule your examination and cleaning to keep your smile beautiful.

Gum Disease Treatment

Over time calculus and tartar can build up and in between your teeth.  When this bacteria starts to get below your gum line, it will settle in between your teeth and gums and can lead to gum disease.  Once this occurs, a routine dental cleaning will no longer address your oral hygiene needs, and a deep cleaning will be needed to help guide your mouth back to health.  Dr. Nguyen or her hygienist will remove tartar, plaque, or calculus that has built up on your teeth and/or below the gum line.  This procedure will allow your gums to heal and begin to become healthy again.  Just like the foundation of a house, your gums are the base of every healthy, beautiful smile.  This treatment is the first step to better overall health. After you have completed this deep cleaning, more frequent cleanings may be required.  These more frequent visits are sometimes known as periodontal maintenance visits, where our team will focus on the health of your gums and soft tissue to ensure that the healing is progressing properly.

Tooth Colored Fillings

If Dr. Nguyen finds that you have a cavity and are in need of a filling to restore the tooth, she will use a tooth-colored resin composite material.  This material will allow for her to create a natural-looking filling that is nearly invisible to the naked eye as well as strengthen the weakened tooth as it is bonded to the enamel.  The composite material used in tooth-colored fillings is bonded directly to the existing tooth, allowing for a better fit and an increase in the structural strength of the remaining tooth.

If you have silver or mercury fillings and are interested in replacing them with tooth-colored restorations, call our office and schedule an examination.  Dr. Nguyen will determine if it makes sense to replace your existing fillings and discuss a plan for your treatment if it is appropriate.  Our goal is to improve your overall health, so we will take care in recommending the correct course of treatment for your specific needs.

Root Canals

If your tooth becomes infected or severely damaged, Dr. Nguyen may recommend a root canal.  There are many reasons that a tooth can become infected including, trauma, decay, and some fillings that need to be placed near the pulp of your tooth.  Many reported toothaches are caused by an infection that can be treated with a root canal.  During the procedure, Dr. Nguyen will remove the nerve and pulp from the space inside the root of your tooth.  It is then cleaned with antibacterial agents and filled and sealed.  

After the procedure is completed, Dr. Nguyen may recommend that you have a crown placed over the restored tooth.  After removing the nerve and the infection, the tooth may become brittle and susceptible to further damage if left unprotected.  A dental crown will be fabricated to match your tooth exactly and placed over the restoration to protect the tooth for years to come.

Crowns & Bridges

If your tooth has decay that is too large or too close to the nerve to restore with a traditional filling, Dr. Nguyen may recommend a crown.  A dental crown is sometimes also called a cap and it covers the entire visible portion of your tooth.  This restoration is then cemented in place so it will look and feel like your natural tooth.  Crowns can also be used when your tooth has been fractured and will restore the original form and function.  These crowns can be made of many materials, but are most commonly made from porcelain.

A dental bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth with lab-fabricated artificial teeth.  These restorations allow you to correct “holes” in your smile and can literally bridge the gap between your remaining teeth.  Like a crown, a bridge can be made from many materials, including porcelain, gold, alloys or a combination of these.  Replacing missing teeth can help to maintain the shape of your face as well as prevent further dental issues by keeping your remaining teeth in their correct alignment.  Ask Dr. Nguyen if a crown or a bridge is the right option for you!

Partials & Dentures

If you’ve lost all of your natural teeth, a complete denture can replace your missing teeth and give you back your smile. There are many reasons for tooth loss.  Regardless of whether you have suffered from periodontal disease, tooth decay or even an injury or trauma, replacing your missing teeth will benefit your appearance and your health. A denture will give your mouth and jaw the structure it needs to keep your face looking healthy and natural. Your teeth and gums keep your facial muscles in place.  Without dentures, these muscles start to sag and typically make a person appear older.

Removable partial dentures usually consist of replacement teeth attached to pink or gum-colored plastic bases, which are connected by metal framework. Removable partial dentures attach to your natural teeth with metal clasps or devices called precision attachments. Precision attachments are generally more esthetic than metal clasps and they are nearly invisible.  At 360 Family and Implant Dentistry, we believe that it is important to save your natural teeth whenever possible.  A partial denture will allow Dr. Nguyen to replace the missing teeth while maintaining as much of your natural smile as possible.  Schedule your visit with our office today to find out more.

Extractions

Sometimes, the best option is to remove a tooth.  If the tooth is significantly damaged or decayed, impacted or stuck in the mouth, has had trauma causing dental complications, or, in some cases, if the tooth is in the way of planned orthodontic treatment, Dr. Nguyen may extract it.  Extractions in are fairly simple and typically are relatively fast to complete.  You will receive a local anesthetic near the troubled tooth to help keep you from experiencing any pain.  After the procedure is completed, our office will give you specific instructions for the rest of the day and you can typically resume your normal day-to-day activities in about 24 hours. We do our best to make each visit comfortable and offer many options to help reduce anxiety.  We offer Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas) as well as sedation options to ensure you are calm and comfortable during your procedure.

Implants

Patients who find themselves with missing or extracted teeth can replace them with a permanent alternative to traditional dentures that will look and feel like their natural teeth. Dental implants will not only provide you with the function of a normal tooth, but they are also individually designed and fabricated to comfortably fit in your mouth without the slipping or abrasion that can be found in traditional dentures. Since they are a permanent addition to your smile, they require no extra maintenance, outside of your normal dental routine.

There are a variety of dental problems and conditions that can cause tooth loss. These include:
• Tooth decay
• Periodontal (Gum) Disease
• Trauma to the mouth, teeth, and/or gums
• Failure of a root canal
• Congenital defects
• Wear and tear

Dental implants are stronger and more durable than their restorative counterparts Bridges and Dentures.   Ask Dr. Nguyen if an implant is right for you!

Whitening

Have you dreamed of having a brilliantly white, “movie star” smile?  Professional teeth whitening may be the answer for you.  Our office offers whitening products and services that are designed to be used exclusively by dental professionals to achieve the best possible results.  Our team of dental professionals will help guide in choosing the perfect option for your smile.  Ask Dr. Nguyen and her team how we can help you achieve the bright smile of your dreams.

Lumineers & Veneers

Porcelain Veneers offer an elegant, beautiful solution to any smile restoration.  They are thin porcelain shells that are bonded to the front of the teeth. These lab-fabricated coverings dramatically improve the color, shape and size of your existing natural teeth.  Once placed, these restorations will be integrated into your smile and are durable enough to hold up to your everyday activities.  They even resist the staining that can be caused by things like tea and coffee!

Veneers offer a relatively easy and effective way to fix worn down or chipped teeth, smiles with some spacing issues, or many other damages that effect teeth.  Veneers can give you the appearance of a completely new smile without the worry of extractions or dental implants.  Ask Dr. Nguyen if veneers are right for you.

Invisalign

If you are one of our many patients who would like to straighten their smile, but don’t want to deal with the hassle and look of traditional metal braces, Invisalign may be the perfect way to achieve the results you have dreamed of.  The Invisalign clear aligners will allow you to straighten your teeth without having to worry about having wires or metal brackets attached to your teeth.  These aligners are comfortable to wear and are virtually invisible.  In addition to being more comfortable, you are able to remove your aligners while you are eating, which means you will not need to alter your diet while undergoing your orthodontic care.  Invisalign is a great option for teens and adults who want to straighten their teeth without drastically altering their lifestyle.  Ask Dr. Nguyen if Invisalign is right for you.

Sedation Dentistry

We understand that dental treatment procedures can be daunting, and that many people don’t “like coming to the dentist.”  A great number of people do not ever visit the dentist because of these fears. At 360 Family and Implant Dentistry, we believe that it doesn’t need to be this way. Don’t let a fear of the dentist keep you from getting the treatment that you need.  Dr. Nguyen has undergone additional training and certification to be able to administer an oral sedative that can help you get through your dental treatment without all of the fear and anxiety that would normally be associated with these procedures.  Ask Dr. Nguyen if Sedation Dentistry is right for your treatment.

Emergency Appointments

At 360 Family and Implant Dentistry, we are available to help you with all of your dental needs.  This includes those times when an issue arises unexpectedly or as the result of an accident.  Prompt care when you have had an accident or are experiencing tooth pain can make a world of difference!  We strive to accommodate same day appointments for our patients with dental emergencies and will always strive to alleviate you or your family member’s pain and/or discomfort as safely as possible.  If you or someone you love is experiencing tooth pain, or has had a dental emergency, call our office now.  Our team of dental professionals are waiting to help schedule your appointment.
