Regular Cleanings and Exams

The American Dental Association recommends semiannual cleanings for the entire family, and Mosaic is happy to make sure your teeth get the proper attention they need. Our skilled staff will provide a professional cleaning that reaches spots difficult to target with a toothbrush, and our doctors will conduct a thorough examination for any developing conditions or cavities, and make treatment recommendations.

 

Professional Whitening

Dentures/Removable Partial Dentures

Whether you are missing a few teeth or all of your teeth, we offer a wide variety of tooth-replacement options. Our skilled doctors will expertly fit dentures for maximum comfort and utility. Usually the process to fabricate a denture requires several steps to accomplish. However, the denture will provide a substitute for missing teeth that can improve ability to eat and talk, as well as improve facial aesthetics. Our dentures are designed in such a way as to show no metal, so that you can talk with ease and without embarrassment.

 

Crowns

Crowns are typically recommended for teeth that are badly damaged, such as in cases where decay is too extensive to treat with a filling. A crown could also be recommended for teeth that are malformed, chipped, or have had a root canal. Crown restorations at Mosaic can give your teeth a natural, flawless look, improving your smile while still enjoying the benefits of your natural teeth.

 

Orthodontics

For both cosmetic and health reasons, Mosaic offers braces to improve the alignment of teeth and to correct the position of misplaced teeth. The benefits of orthodontic treatment include an improved bite and properly aligned teeth that make it easier to brush and floss. You will also enjoy the confidence that comes with having straight teeth. If you are interested to find out if braces could be beneficial for you, please ask our staff to schedule a consultation.

 

Root Canal Treatments

Due to physical trauma or infection due to a large cavity, the nerve inside a tooth can become damaged and cause pain. In order to save the tooth, the dentist may perform a "root canal." This procedure involves removing the damaged nerves of the tooth, followed by the dentist cleaning the infected area inside the tooth root and placing a filling where the nerves were removed, allowing you to retain your natural tooth. Using the latest methods, patients experience no more discomfort than if they were having a normal cleaning performed.

 

Tooth Extraction

In cases of significant tooth damage, your dentist may recommend the extraction of the tooth in question. If extraction is required, you can rely on Mosaic to ensure the process is a smooth and painless as possible. In addition to damaged teeth, extraction may also be recommended for Third Molars (Wisdom Teeth). Patients undergoing orthodontic treatment may have extractions recommended as well, to relieve crowding in the mouth and enhancing the effectiveness of treatment.


Sedation DentistrySedation Dentistry

It is common to be nervous at the dentist. Whether you are afraid of pain or have had bad dental experiences in the past, we understand your concerns and will take every measure necessary to help ease your anxiety. We offer nitrous oxide sedation (laughing gas) to most of our patients, except those that are pregnant, to help them relax while in the dental chair. Patients using laughing gas describe it as feeling "floaty" and carefree. Furthermore, we can offer conscious oral sedation (medication taken by mouth) to those with high anxiety or to nervous and apprehensive children. Patients under medication tend to feel sleepy, but will be conscious and can respond to verbal commands. At Mosaic, you no longer need to fear the dentist!

Children's DentistryChildren's Dentistry

Children can have their first teeth in the mouth as early as 6 months old. It is important to develop and maintain good oral hygiene beginning at a young age. Early childhood decay not only causes pain but can also lead to infection and premature loss of teeth. Even though baby teeth will eventually be replaced by adult teeth, children will not lose their front teeth until the age of 6-7 years old and their back teeth until the age of 11-13 years old. Children need their baby teeth to chew food and to help with the proper development of the jaw and associated muscles. Furthermore, premature loss of baby teeth can lead to loss of space in the mouth, which leads to less space for adult teeth. Here at Mosaic, we encourage a child to have his/her first dental visit by the age of 1 year. If treatment is needed, we offer oral conscious sedation and laughing gas to help your child relax, in order to cope with fear and anxiety so that treatment can be performed safely and quickly.
