Dental Fillings & Restorations
Whether you need a new filling or an old one to be repaired, we can help. Dr. Frey prefers to use tooth-colored fillings—not only because they look nicer, but because there's a lot of great arguments for why these kinds of fillings are better than the traditionally-used silver fillings. Firstly, silver fillings contain mercury, which can stain the teeth or gums. With the advancements in dental technology, alternative materials used for tooth-colored fillings avoid this problem. They tend to be more durable and effective overall.Read More
One of the smartest things you can do to prevent cavities is to take advantage of a dental sealant procedure. This involves the use of a plastic resin coating being placed within the grooves and pits of the teeth, so that plaque and other substances within the mouth won't have a place to go. If you'd like to avoid a tooth extraction or the other undesirable solutions to cavities, be proactive and consider getting a dental sealant.Read More
Is it time for a smile makeover to replace damaged or missing teeth? Dentures are highly effective as a form of tooth restoration, and they can be made to look entirely natural as well. As a prosthesis which replaces some or all of the patient's teeth, they are comfortable and feel natural. If you're considering getting dentures, meet with Dr. Frey for a consultation and find out how you can be fitted for this highly beneficial dental option.Read More
A dental bridge is an oral insert which replaces missing teeth. These devices fox an artificial tooth to adjacent health teeth, and can be either removed or fixed, depending on the nature of the procedure and desires of the patient. Fixed bridges are more common, but removable bridges offer some conveniences as well. To find out more about which kind is right for you, a consultation with Dr. Frey can answer all of your questions.Read More
Did you know that a dental implant doesn't actually refer to an artificial tooth? The term refers to the unit which replaces the root of a tooth - you can think of it like the foundation for other dental work. They're made of titanium and will last for the rest of your lifetime (and likely the lifetime of your grandchildren!). These implants are generally used to support a crown, denture, or other dental work.Read More
Crowns are used to cover both implants or natural teeth. These dental devices cover a tooth entirely to not only improve its performance but to strengthen it as well. Crowns are designed to match the color of your teeth, so they look good too. Did you know that crowns can protect your mouth from nerve damage? If you've had a tooth broken on account of an accident or other dental issues—like teeth grinding—a crown can prevent a root canal among other common dental issues.Read More
In some situations, it's necessary to remove a tooth that is in poor condition. This is usually a smart choice because it may prevent further damage to your other teeth or your gums. Tooth extractions aren't quite as scary as they sound, and you have plenty of options to replace the tooth. Dr. Frey can help you figure out your best options during a quick and easy consultation.Read More
A large amount of people suffer from teeth grinding - either at night in their sleep, or during the daytime without even noticing it, usually due to stress. Teeth grinding or clenching can be treated with a night-guard. These night-guards are molded specifically to the contours of your teeth so that they fit perfectly. This helps the night-guard protect your teeth. Teeth grinding is a problem that can be resolved, but while you're in the process of doing that, you can protect your teeth from further dental issues with this simple solution.Read More
Gum Disease Laser Therapy
If you suspect that you have gum disease, please schedule a consultation with Dr. Frey right away! Laser therapy for gum disease can not only increase your oral comfort dramatically, but is highly effective at keeping your mouth healthy and clean. Laser therapy is accurate and precise. You'll be able to have specific areas of your gums and tooth structure cleaned without worrying about the condition of the surrounding areas of the mouth. The best part? Gum disease laser therapy means that you'll have fewer visits to the dentist. As much fun as it is to visit with Dr. Frey, your dental health comes first.Read More
Root Canal Therapy
Nobody wants to hear that they need a root canal, but this common procedure isn't anywhere near as terrifying as people tend to think. By working with Dr. Frey for your root canal therapy, you can save your tooth. Don't suffer in silence; take action today! During a root canal therapy session, which has over a 90% success rate, you'll have the infected part of the pulp of the tooth removed. This means that having the tooth removed (and the subsequent root) will not be necessary. After the pulp is removed, the area is sealed with a material. This material prevents further infection of the affected area.Read More
Sports Mouth Guards
Anytime you're involved in an active sport, it's important to protect your body - your teeth are no exception! In fact, many sporting teams require their players to have mouth guards. If you'd like to make a smart choice and protect your teeth, a well fitting mouth guard can make it significantly more comfortable. When your mouth guard fits, you'll be better protected and be able to focus on your game, not biting down on a poorly fit guard.Read More
