Dental Crowns and Bridges in Sterling, CO

 
Your dental examination begins with a routine cleaning, where we scale the teeth to remove tartar and prepare the surface. Once the cleaning is finished, we polish the teeth using pumice and a prophy angle and perform minimal x-rays to complete your examination. We can determine what is needed for your dental work, and help you outline a treatment plan. Our dentists work to provide for your needs based on what you can afford to do with as little expense to you as possible.
 

X-Rays

This is a focused beam of x-ray particles, which produces an image on special sensor and shows the structure through which it passed. This gives the familiar black and white images that doctors and dentists use to diagnose problems. X-rays are a necessary part of the diagnostic process. Without an x-ray of the whole tooth and supporting bone and gum tissues, it is extremely difficult to detect an infection or pathology that requires attention. Coupled with computer monitoring, digital x-ray technology allows us to enhance the images for better diagnosis of dental concerns and we are often able to find cavities while they are still very small and treated minimally.
