Family dentistry, like general dentistry, provides services related to the general maintenance of oral hygiene and tooth health. We are responsible for ensuring that plaque buildup around the teeth is kept to a minimum, that tooth decay is eliminated and cavities are filled, and that gums remain healthy.
Partials and Dentures
A patient missing one or all their teeth may also opt to replace them via a removable appliance. Partial and complete dentures in many cases can now be made metal-free, which is a more comfortable option for many who in the past couldn’t tolerate metal in their mouth. We also offer a temporary fix for patients waiting on implant placement, or after implant placement during the healing phase.
A root canal is the process of removing the nerve and blood supply that runs through the center of the tooth root. Sometimes a root canal is necessary to save a tooth and properly restore it. Dr Sobero has the latest equipment to perform your root canal painlessly, and in many cases in just one visit!
Dr. Sobero and her experienced team provide comprehensive restorative dentistry for patients of all ages. Restorative dentistry includes fillings, inlays, onlays, crowns, and bridges. Whenever possible, Dr. Sobero uses only tooth-colored (and metal-free) restorations using the latest bonding technology. These restorations conserve healthy tooth structure, strengthen the tooth, and may prevent more extensive treatment in later years.
Old black mercury fillings expand and corrode with age, which can weaken, crack, and break teeth. Our tooth colored restorations are beautiful, natural in appearance, and durable. Porcelain restorations restore teeth to virtually their natural state, and are made to blend seamlessly with the existing tooth.
