At Washington Dental in Vernon, our primary goal is to improve the oral health of all our patients. To achieve this goal, our doctors educate our patients on the right care and practices that promote oral health. In addition, we strive to provide regular and extensive dental examinations to allow the detection of patients’ problems at initial stages.

More importantly, we ensure that our patients receive the best treatments for every dental condition they have.

Similarly, the procedures should provide permanent solutions to the problem.

How We Help

Our extensive range of services provides solutions to all aspects of oral health. We offer services that are preventative, diagnostic, and therapeutic. Preventative services involve doctors educating patients on the right measures of maintaining oral health while diagnostic services include an examination to determine the source of problems. On the other hand, therapeutic services involve general services that help deal with the issue at hand. We also offer cosmetic dentistry that improves the physical appearance of the teeth and gums.

Our General Services

At Washington Dental in Vernon, we strive to provide quality dental health care to all residents of Vernon and its surrounding areas. To achieve this, we offer a wide range of services and dental procedures. Additionally, our doctors use state of the art equipment to perform all procedures.

We also offer unique services that other dentists are afraid to perform. An example of such a service is the dental implants that most dental facilities do not provide.

Below are some of the services that we offer:

Cosmetic Dentistry

We have a team of qualified doctors who perform dental procedures to improve or enhance patients’ smiles and teeth appearance. The processes generally deal with cosmetic issues such as

  • Teeth whitening
  • Teeth straightening
  • Dental bridges
  • Dental implants

Though cosmetic dentistry is not taught in schools, doctors advance from general dentists to cosmetic dentists through experience. This means that to qualify as a cosmetic dentist, you must have worked in the dental field for long and undertaken some training and studies on cosmetic dentistry.

Pediatric Dentistry

Our doctors offer dental care services to children and teenagers through our pediatric dental service. We ensure that the children get all the possible dental care.

Pediatric dentistry will involve all the procedures of dental care. The procedures may be whitening of the teeth, filling it, straightening the teeth, and all other relevant procedures. The only distinction between this type of dentistry and the standard adult one is that it is specific to children. Therefore, the doctors that perform this procedure are well versed in dealing with children and have extensive training in dealing with them.

Orthodontics

Washington Dental in Vernon specializes in orthodontics dentistry. Orthodontics involves the installation of dental braces to help align the teeth to improve dental health.

Our doctors use orthodontics to treat the following conditions:

  • Crossbites
  • Open bites
  • Underbites
  • Crooked teeth
  • Deep bites
  • Jaw flaws

The braces we offer fall under the category of cosmetic or structural dentistry. Though the use of braces was more common among children in the past, adults have embraced it as well. The number of adults who use braces has increased over the years because braces have proved to be reliable.

Terms and Services

Root Canal

Infected teeth usually require root canal treatment. The procedure involves the removal of the infected pulp and filling the space with an inert substance to prevent future infections. Our teams of doctors are well versed with the proper procedures of conducting root canals and have all the information concerning its aftercare.

Typically, the root canal procedure is more painful compared to the filling procedure. However, it is still very reputable, and most people even opt to use it. To make the process more comfortable, our doctors will numb the area surrounding the tooth. Our doctors use anesthetics to do this.

It is safe to conclude that this procedure will provide a permanent solution to your problem. However, this requires the maintenance of good oral hygiene after undergoing the procedure. Oral health involves flossing, consistent brushing of your teeth, and undergoing regular dental examinations.

If you require a root canal, please visit us at Washington Dental to get the quickest and most assured treatment.

Dental Bridges

At Washington Dental, we offer replacements for lost teeth. It is always the desire of every person to have all teeth, whether artificial or natural ones.

The false tooth, commonly called pontic, is fixed between two crowns that act as anchors to support it. Once supported, dentists fix the structure between the two adjoining teeth. The structure provides strength, but the pontic primary purpose is to fill the space and avoid the risk of shifting.

If the teeth that are missing are two, the false teeth that will fill the gap will be four. This is because; filling the gaps requires our doctors to use two abutment pieces for each side of the gap.

To gain a better understanding of how bridges work and the merits and demerits of the procedure, kindly visit us at Washington Dental. Our doctors will thoroughly provide you with all the information that you need at zero costs.

Teeth Whitening

White teeth go a long way in brightening the smiles of people. They also give confidence and portray a positive image of dental hygiene. At Washington Dental, we purpose to whiten and brighten the teeth of the residents of Vernon.

The procedure of teeth whitening depends on the severity of your stains and discoloration. Therefore, this means that the most discolored teeth will take longer, while less discolored teeth take a less period.

Our doctors use zoom technology to help fasten the process. Zoom technology usually involves the use of hydrogen peroxide along with zoom light to lighten and brighten the color of your teeth. Besides, our doctors apply zoom light while focusing on your teeth to help whiten them.

However, different people react differently to various whitening methods. Therefore, this means that we have to conduct a thorough dental examination to help determine the kind of procedure that best suits your teeth.

Taking Care Of Teeth After Whitening

After undergoing the procedure of whitening teeth, you should keep away from colored foods. Colored foods stain teeth and will hence decrease the brightness of your teeth. In addition, you should regularly visit the dentist to help maintain the white color. The dentist will perform noninvasive procedures as a way of keeping your teeth color.

Additionally, it is of the essence to brush your teeth at least twice a day to help maintain the white color by the removal of food particles. On top of brushing, you should also floss your teeth regularly as it helps preserve the color of your teeth.

You will also receive a dental tray from your dentist that requires a monthly application. Applying it guarantees you of white teeth and removes any discolorations that may have developed.

Most importantly, it is vital to avoid beverages that stain your teeth. The beverages include coffee, colored wine, carbonated beverages, sauces, and black tea. In case you consume these drinks, you should brush your teeth immediately or use water to rinse your mouth to remove the color.

Invisalign

We also offer braces that are more comfortable, both in appearance and convenience. Our Invisalign braces are metal-free and are not visible. This Washington Dental Service promotes perfect teeth alignment hence helping our patients achieve the smiles they desire.

The Invisalign system is a series of trays that will help fix your teeth. Each tray has a role to play in the alignment of teeth. Therefore, this means that each tray that is part of the series aligns each tooth precisely.

The time that this treatment takes varies for different people. Most importantly, the time it takes depends on the severity of a person’s situation, i.e., how crooked the teeth are.

Dental Fillings

Dental Fillings involves filling the damaged area of a tooth with composite, silver, or porcelain. Our doctors carry out this procedure when they detect tooth decay or fractures of the tooth.

This procedure is mostly used where cavities are involved, i.e., tooth decay that occurs because of bacteria. However, patients must take good care of fillings because failure to do so may result in infections. If the tooth develops an infection, then the dentist will have to extract the tooth.

At Washington Dental, our doctors perform examinations that help them decide whether the dental filling treatment is appropriate for patients. After establishing that it is necessary, they perform the procedure and conduct follow up examinations to monitor the progress of patients.

Tooth Extraction

A dental extraction refers to the removal of a tooth from the mouth. In most cases, extractions take place when doctors cannot save a patient’s tooth by an alternative method. Similarly, we also perform extractions to create space to allow for other treatment options.

During tooth extractions, our dentists numb the tooth to facilitate the painless removal of your tooth. What follows is the removal of the tooth from its socket, i.e.,  pulling out the roots.

To perform an extraction, the doctor will need to know the following:

  • Any medications that you are taking
  • If you have any cardiac conditions
  • If you are on renal dialysis
  • If you have prosthetic joints
  • The state of your bone healing processes
  • They also need to be prepared to handle dry sockets

Dental Implants

Dental implants are made of titanium and act as artificial roots when natural ones are missing. Doctors place them between the teeth that are missing and are close to having your teeth.

Performing dental implants requires the expertise of oral surgeons. At Washington Dental, we have lead dentists who have training and experience in oral surgery. Furthermore, our doctors have excellent implantation skills and will help restore your appearance.

After the placement of the implant, it will take some time before the implant integrates with your bone. The standard time that implants take is between four to six months

Advantages of implants are as follows:

  • Implants not only replace one tooth but also replace two or more teeth
  • They provide a foundation that is strong and lasts for long
  • An implant does not rely on your adjacent teeth for support
  • Implants generally increase your oral health
