Cleanings & Checkups

Our knowledgeable hygienists will take good care of you.

A check-up at our office is gentle and thorough

Professional cleanings and routine checkups are essential to good oral health. In a routine visit, we will examine your teeth using laser assisted cavity detection equipment, take digital x-rays if needed, and screen your mouth for oral cancer. A thorough cleaning and polishing of your teeth will brighten your smile.

If any further treatment is needed, Dr. Williams will go over your options with you, and we will schedule you for treatment.

Digital X-rays have less radiation than traditional X-ray machines and there is no need for processing film of the image. Your X-rays can be seen by Dr. Williams within seconds of taking them. Then he can go over the results with you on our in-room computer screens.

Gum treatment

Gum disease is the number one cause of adult tooth loss in the United States. We use multiple high-tech solutions to treat mild to moderate forms of gum disease. Dr. Williams can diagnose the presence and severity of gum disease and prescribe an effective treatment.

Painless tooth-colored fillings

Dr. Williams takes care of 80% of the cavities he finds using painless laser technology. Any cavities will be filled with a tooth-colored composite that perfectly matches the shade of your natural teeth. No more silver and black fillings like you got in the old days. If the cavity is larger, the doctor may use a crown (a tooth-colored cap over the base of your own tooth) or an inlay or onlay (a ceramic replacement for the missing portion of a tooth).


Removing & replacing amalgam or “silver” fillings

If you have old amalgam (silver-colored) fillings or ugly fillings made of another metal, they can be replaced safely and easily by Dr. Williams. Old silver fillings are only meant to last for 10-15 years. Over time, they can break down or even fall out, leaving your remaining tooth structure hollow and unprotected. If your old fillings have been in your mouth longer that 10 years, it’s time to get their condition checked out by Dr. Williams.
