Are you looking for a caring dentist willing to spend the time with your entire family? Dr. Silva provides the highest level of care through careful listening, understanding, and communication. We strive to make every patient’s visit comfortable and relaxing.
To keep your teeth and mouth in optimal condition, you need to visit us for checkups and cleanings every six months. Dr. Silva can help you ward off problems like gum disease, which has been found to contribute to a host of overall health issues. Also, when tooth decay is treated in the early stage, the procedure is minimally invasive and may not even require anesthesia. Left to spread, gum disease and tooth decay can destroy a healthy smile.
Your checkup will include digital X-rays (if necessary), an oral cancer screening, bite assessment, and tooth-by-tooth exam. A hygienist will also clean the plaque and debris from your teeth, then polish them to a silky, shiny finish. Our intraoral camera will give Dr. Silva a close look at areas of your mouth that are hard to see, and X-rays allow her to investigate the internal structures of your teeth and jaws. If you suffer from snoring or sleep apnea, Dr. Silva has therapy available that will give you a good night’s sleep, and with TMJ therapy, she can often alleviate headaches and teeth grinding.
