Dr. Victoria Rubinoff and her team offer a comprehensive array of services to meet all your general dentistry needs. Whether you’re ready to schedule your next biannual cleaning and checkup or you’re experiencing a specific issue with your teeth or oral tissues, we’re on hand to help you find just the solution you need.
- Dental Hygiene
We provide excellent preventive care, including exams, cleanings, and digital X-rays. Early detection of dental problems is essential for optimal oral health. The American Dental Association suggests twice yearly cleanings and exams.
- Oral Cancer Screenings
Dr. Rubinoff recommends having an oral cancer screening at least once each year. Regular screenings can help ensure early detection.
- Night Guards
A custom-fit night guard is a removable dental appliance that is similar to an athletic mouth guard. It provides a barrier between your top and bottom teeth while you sleep, protecting you from tooth wear and tear, gum irritation, enamel damage, and jaw pain associated with TMJ Disorder.
Sealants are highly effective in preventing tooth decay and cavities on your molars and premolars. Typically, children get sealants on their permanent molars and premolars as soon as these teeth come in. These sealants can protect the teeth through the cavity-prone years of ages 6 to 14. However, adults without decay or fillings in their molars can also benefit from sealants.
Root canal therapy involves removing the pulp from the tooth chamber and canals. We then clean the canals with a disinfecting solution. During your root canal therapy, we may provide local anesthesia or sedation to ensure your complete comfort. Root canal therapy can help preserve your original tooth for a lifetime.
Periodontal disease is very treatable, but cannot be fully cured. After the completion of your periodontitis treatment, you will be scheduled for regular ongoing maintenance care. These visits will involve thorough professional cleaning and monitoring of your oral health to ensure the disease does not recur and progress further.
Composite fillings are made of a tooth-colored, composite resin and are a safe, effective solution to help preserve your teeth. This resin is strong, durable, and aesthetic. We gently remove decayed tissue and place your filling to help prevent further damage.
Dental crowns are often used in conjunction with root canal therapy, dental implants, or as an anchor for bridges.
They are typically made from porcelain to provide both strength and a natural appearance.
A dental bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth. With this type of restoration, one or more neighboring teeth may be crowned and used to anchor the replacement. A bridge is custom made to match your natural teeth in color, size, and shape using strong and durable materials.
Inlays & Onlays
Inlays and onlays are dental restorations that are used as an alternative to full-coverage dental crowns. These dental restorations offer a well-fitting, strong, long-lasting solution to tooth decay. Inlays and onlays can also be used in place of dental fillings. While dental fillings are molded into place within the mouth during a single dental visit, inlays and onlays are fabricated in a dental lab before being fitted and bonded to the damaged tooth.
Third molars, or wisdom teeth, are the last set of permanent molars to emerge. These teeth are also the most likely to require extraction due to any of several complications. However, other teeth may also require extraction if they cannot be saved by root canal therapy or other treatment. Some of the most common reasons to have teeth extracted include:
- Impacted tooth – a tooth that is trapped beneath bone or gums and not emerging properly.
- Crowding or small mouth – emerging teeth that cause other teeth to shift or crack due to lack of space.
- Decay or infection – a tooth affected by extreme decay or infection that cannot be corrected with filling or root canal treatment.
- Soft-tissue Grafts
A soft-tissue graft is recommended in some cases to bolster the gum tissue in a specific area of the mouth. Generally, this is done in cases of gum recession, root exposure, or to prevent the development of soft-tissue related issues.
