Professional cleanings are as important to your dental health as daily brushing and flossing. Twice yearly dental check-ups and cleanings help catch problems when they are small and easier to treat. During your exam, the dentist can also perform an oral cancer screening.
Gum disease is a common infection of the tissues that surround your teeth, and, left unchecked, it can cause tissue and bone loss. Our team will help you monitor for gum disease and establish good flossing habits to restore periodontal health.
Grinding your teeth can cause permanent damage. See how our custom-fitted nightguards can protect your smile while you sleep.
If your teeth are affected by areas of decay, Dr. Immel can use a composite (tooth-colored) material to restore their appearance while protecting the rest of the tooth from further damage.
Severely fractured or decayed teeth may need more than just a filling. Crowns cover the entire surface of the tooth, while bridges replace it entirely. Both are custom made here in Yakima and fitted precisely to your teeth.
A “root canal,” or endodontic therapy, is a procedure available to save a tooth that is infected and would otherwise require extraction.
Dental implants are the closest dental restoration to your original teeth. They are natural-looking and provide the functionality of a normal tooth.
Dentures are a replacement option for teeth that fall out or require extraction. They may replace all of your teeth (full denture) or only some (partial).
Extractions remove teeth that are damaged beyond repair or are likely to cause problems in your mouth (like wisdom teeth).
Bleaching, or whitening, is one of the easiest and most noticeable changes that you can make to improve the appearance of your smile.
