Services We Offer
With any of our procedures, our dentists will explain everything to make sure you are aware and are comfortable with the entire process. We strive to educate and answer all of your questions to alleviate any undue anxiety.
The comprehensive or new patient exam is the hallmark of our practice. Dr. McNickle and Dr. Vincent want to get to know you as a unique individual, and your first examination is that opportunity.
Preventive Dental Care/Cleanings
It’s not just a cleaning! Dental cleanings are essential to our dental health and recommended every three to six months. No matter how many times you brush or floss daily, tartar will accumulate and can only by removed by a skilled professional.
Also known as TMJ, TMD, bite disease or “temporomandibular joint dysfunction”, is a common condition which can cause many painful symptoms. Symptoms of this condition can range from jaw pain, headaches, ear aches, neck pain, tooth clenching and grinding and jaw clicking and popping.
Cavities which are not treated early can lead to root canals or even loss of teeth. A cavity can be diagnosed several ways. Often, a cavity is discovered during a routine cleaning and exam; it can appear as a soft area in the tooth that our explorers actually penetrate.
Bridges, Veneers, Crowns & Implants
There have been incredible advances in solutions for tooth loss and tooth reconstruction. A crown is the best choice for a tooth that has broken, is extensively decayed or has a previously restored large filling.
Teeth Whitening Services
Beautiful smiles are possible for everyone! We will help you to decide the best aesthetic solution for you.
Partials, Dentures, and Implant Retained Dentures
When a person is faced with multiple tooth loss, a partial or denture is a viable option. Partial and dentures are removable appliances which replace missing teeth.
Endodontic Therapy/Root Canals
Sometimes the only way to save a tooth is a root canal. Situations that require root canals can vary. In most cases, an infection caused by tooth decay is the culprit. Other possible causes could be a fractured tooth or a necrotic or dying tooth.
Situations that require pulling teeth or extractions vary. Often, it is simply a case of an overcrowded mouth. Wisdom teeth, although inherently sound, generally tend to cause trouble in our mouths at some point in most people.
With our new E4D technology we can perform same day crowns, therefore eliminating the need for a temporary crown. First, the doctor prepares the tooth for the crown, and then the assistant takes digital scans to design your new crown. The design is sent to our mill that cuts your crown out of a porcelain block, and then bakes at 1500 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 minutes. Finally after a short cooling period the crown is ready for cementation.
