New Patient Exam
Maryvale Dental will perform a dental exam to gather information about your oral health. Checking for dental decay is only a small part of a complete oral exam. We will check for gum disease and also examines the health of your entire mouth surrounding soft tissues, which includes checking for such things as pre-cancerous or cancerous lesions; oral sores or irritations to gum tissue; fit of dentures or bridges and proper bite….
How do dental digital X-rays work?
X-rays pass through your mouth during a dental exam, more X-rays are absorbed by the denser parts (such as teeth and bone) than by soft tissues (such as cheeks and gums) before striking the film. This creates an image on the radiograph. Digital X-rays are much faster and safer than traditional X-rays and emit as much as 90% less radiation.
Tooth Colored Crowns
As we age, many of us find ourselves with teeth that are no longer structurally sound. Root canals, lost fillings, decay below a filling, chipping and cracking of the enamel are all things that can lead to large scale defects in a tooth´s surface. When the entire surface of the tooth is a problem, but the root system is intact, a crown might be just what the dentist orders…

Teeth whitening, or tooth bleaching, is a cosmetic dentistry procedure designed to remove stains and discoloration, as well as lighten pigmentation within the teeth. The level of whiteness that can be achieved will depend on the level of discoloration of the teeth and how they came to be stained…
Dental Implants are substitutes for teeth and they are today’s best alternative to your natural teeth. They offer you a permanent or secure solution for replacing one or more teeth. They are made of biocompatible materials, just the same as hip implants or similar orthopedic devices, and function as anchors or support for traditional forms of dentistry, such as crowns, bridges or dentures.
Tooth Colored Fillings
Composite resin is a filling material designed for aesthetic dental restorations. Composite fillings resemble the color of your natural tooth and are made in a wide range of tooth colors allowing near invisible restorations of teeth. Composite fillings require only the diseased part of the tooth to be removed….
Dental sealants are thin plastic coatings that are applied to the grooves on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth to protect them from tooth decay. Cavities can begin early in life, so sealants are usually placed on children’s and teenagers’ premolars and molars to protect them. Adults without decay or fillings in their molars and premolars can also benefit from sealants.
