Dental Exam and Consultation
Dr. Anderson and her team perform a comprehensive exam of the teeth, gums and soft tissue in the oral cavity to assess overall oral health. We utilize the latest in digital x-rays that reduce radiation exposure by 50%, which also allows us to identify any problems at the earliest stage possible. We also utilize an intraoral camera which allows the patient to see exactly what the dentist and hygienist are seeing. This greatly helps our patients become far more educated and involved in their treatment options. Since both intraoral pictures and digital x-rays are taken on large computer screens, they are much easier to see than traditional film x-rays that were only an inch and a half in height.
"An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure"
This adage definately applies to dentistry! One of our main goals at Crestview dental is to try to educate our patients on how to prevent dental problems through proper oral hygiene and oral care. We incorporate fluoride treatments to strengthen enamel in kids and we utilize sealants to prevent cavities from entering the grooves of kid’s teeth where most cavities start. We utilize air abrasion technique on small cavities which is extremely effective at removing the decay without removing healthy tooth—-most of the time without the need for anesthetic! Our focus on prevention and conservative treatment in kids ensures they will not experience the same dental problems that past generations have had.
In addition to fillings, we provide a full compliment of tooth restorations and replacement options. We offer beautiful, natural looking crowns for teeth without enough support left for a filling. We also provide tooth replacement therapy such as bridges, implants and dentures to comfortably replace teeth that have been lost. There are often times several different treatment options for patients and we pride ourselves on educating patients so they can make informed decisions that fit with their lifestyle and goals.

As well as gentle cleanings, our hygienists provide periodontal therapy (deep cleanings) to treat gum disease (gingivitis and periodontitis). Signs of this disease range from gums that bleed easily to bone loss and loose teeth. Over the last several years there has been increased focus and research in the role that gum disease plays in other parts of our body. There has been significant research linking gum disease to heart disease, stroke and other inflammatory conditions in the body. For more information on this mouth-body link, please visit www.perio.org and click on the health risks tab. Our hygienists are well trained at assessing and treating early and moderate stages of this disease. Our comprehensive exam of your gums will inform you of any signs of gum disease, treatment options and more importantly, what things you can do on a daily basis that may be saving more than just your teeth!
