Diagnostics & Prevention
Generally the earlier an issue is picked up the more options you will have in terms of treatment for restoring the oral health of your mouth as well as overall health and the cheaper those options will typically be.
Our dentists use a mixture of time tested diagnostic methods, and the latest advances in diagnostic camera and digital x-ray technology.

Always breaking or chipping fillings?
We frequently see undiagnosed clenching and grinding in patients who have had years of patch-up work with fillings that continue to pop-off and break. Addressing the underlying causes of the way the teeth come together is important to stop the cycle of tooth destruction and for the long term benefit of the mouth and the body. Undiagnosed clenching and grinding can result in split teeth having to be removed, jaw issues, headaches and even spasms in the arms!
