Comprehensive Dental Services

Exams
Initial dental exams are important to establish a base line of condition and treatment of your teeth, mouth and gums. Dr. Walker will check you after every routine cleaning to make sure no new issues are on the horizon. Learn more here…

Cleaning (Prophylaxis)
Your teeth should be cleaned by a Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH) twice a year, unless recommended otherwise by your dentist. We remove any plaque and calculus build up on the tooth surface, above and below the gum line, then polish your teeth and floss, leaving a beautifully cleaned and sparkling smile. Learn more here…

Tooth Whitening

Fillings
A filling is a dental restorative material used to restore the function, integrity and morphology of missing tooth structure. Fillings are usually used to close holes in the tooth enamel caused by cavities. We provide fillings that closely match the color of your tooth for an esthetically pleasing result.

Crowns
If a tooth is missing a significant amount of tooth structure, a crown may be needed to strengthen the tooth and prevent it from breaking. Crowns can also be used cosmetically to improve a person’s smile. Learn more here…

Bridges
A bridge is made up of two crowns for the teeth on either side of a gap and a false tooth/teeth in between. Dental bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants. Learn more here…

Root Canals
An infected or traumatized nerve may result in the need for root canal therapy to remove the infected nerves and vessels contained within the roots of the tooth. While this therapy has a reputation for being painful, today’s anesthetics make this procedure just as comfortable as getting a filling.

Extractions
A tooth extraction (removal) is often necessary when the tooth has deteriorated to the point that it can no longer provide its intended function. Learn more here…

Implants
A dental implant is an artificial post that is placed into your jaw and restored to replace the missing tooth/teeth. 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 that you may forget you ever lost a tooth! Learn more here…

Dentures
Dentures are a set of replacement teeth for any teeth that are missing. There are partial dentures, which take the place of only a few teeth and prevent the others from changing position. If there are no remaining natural teeth, the person would need complete dentures, which replace every tooth in the mouth. Both types of dentures are removable and usually made of metal or acrylic resin, a plastic-like material that is molded to fit the exact shape of a person’s mouth. Learn more here…

Wisdom Teeth
A wisdom tooth, in humans, is any of the usual four third molars. Wisdom teeth usually appear in the mouth between the ages of 17 and 25. They are often extracted if there is not enough room for them to erupt in the mouth or they become impacted. Learn more here…

Orthodontics (Braces)
Dental braces, also known as orthodontic braces, are devices used to align and straighten teeth and help to position them with regard to a person’s bite, while also working to improve dental health. Braces can be either cosmetic or structural. They are often used to correct underbites, overbites, cross bites, open bites, deep bites, crooked teeth, and various other flaws of the teeth and jaw. Dr. Walker can determine if you or your child needs braces and give you a referral to a qualified Orthodontist. Learn more here…
