Professional cleanings performed by a hygienist or dental assistant are as important to your dental health as daily brushing and flossing. Twice yearly dental check-ups and cleanings help catch problems when they are small and easier to treat. Left unattended, small treatable problems become worse and may require more extensive, expensive procedures to repair. Read More About Dental Checkups

Sealants are generally used to help prevent tooth decay on the biting surfaces of back teeth (molars). The natural grooves of these teeth can trap food that can resist casual brushing and rinsing. If left in place, the trapped food allows bacteria to multiply, eventually causing tooth decay and requiring costly attention. Read More About Dental Sealants
For decades, amalgam fillings have been the go-to choice for filling cavities. However, amalgam fillings, while strong, have a few major disadvantages. They are silver in color (so they stand out from the rest of your teeth) and they contain both metals and mercury. Composite dental fillings are made from composite resin. Along with matching the color of your natural tooth, the material bonds with the tooth’s structure, meaning less of the natural tooth needs to be drilled away. Composite fillings do not have any metal or mercury in them. Read More About Composite Dental Fillings
