Dental radiographs, or X-rays, are an important part of a thorough dental examination. Dr. Ryan is very concerned about minimizing the amount of radiation a patient receives at the dental office, which is why we use the latest dental technology using high-speed film packets. This substantially reduces exposure when compared to non-high speed films traditionally used in the past.
COMPLETE ORAL EXAM:
At your first appointment, Dr. Ryan will conduct a complete oral examination of your mouth and teeth, as well as conduct an oral cancer exam. She will allow time to understand your needs and wishes while offering you the best possible dental care treatment if necessary.

A dental implant is a small titanium post that replaces the tooth root. Dental implants are an ideal option for people in good general oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason. They are used to support dentures, giving you the security that most denture patients feel that they have lost.While high-tech in nature, dental implants are actually more tooth-saving than traditional bridgework, since implants do not rely on neighboring teeth for support.
Dental implants are so natural-looking and feeling, you may forget you ever lost a tooth.
We know that your confidence about your teeth affects how you feel about yourself, both personally and professionally. Dental implants if taken care of properly can last a lifetime.
CROWN & BRIDGE:
A bridge is a custom restoration that replaces one or more missing teeth. Where as a crown covers a single tooth surface. We use the best products, labs when customizing a crown or bridge for our patients. Your appearance as well as the health and function of the tooth are the important to us. Crowns & Bridges will help your teeth last for a lifetime as well as help you maintain the natural shape of your face by supporting your lips and cheeks. Also, aiding in proper digestion of food since it will allow the proper chewing surfaces needed.
Sealants protect the grooved and pitted surfaces of the teeth, especially the chewing surfaces of back teeth where most cavities in children are found. Made of clear or shaded plastic, sealants are applied to the teeth to help keep them cavity-free.Even if your child brushes and flosses carefully, it is difficult—sometimes impossible—to clean the tiny grooves and pits on certain teeth. Food and bacteria build up in these crevices, placing your child in danger of tooth decay. Sealants “seal out” food and plaque, thus reducing the risk of decay.
Veneers are wafer-thin, custom-made shells made of porcelain designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth enabling the changing of their color, shape, size, or length. Porcelain veneers resist stains and better mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth.
