Dr. Kaminski offers a full array of dental services to help you maintain healthy teeth. You can read more about these topics by clicking on the link at the bottom of this page:
Initial Oral Exam. Consists of visual examination, periodontal probing (evaluation of healthy gum tissue), x-rays, diagnosis and treatment recommendations.
Prophylaxis (cleaning). Your teeth will be cleaned by a Registered Dental Hygienist to maintain healthy teeth and gums.
Teeth Whitening. Our at-home system offers similar results to one-hour whitening by bleaching your teeth in the comfort of your home over a 2-week period.
Fillings. Cosmetic, natural-looking, tooth-colored composite fillings maintain a great smile without dark shadows that could result from the placement of silver fillings. Silver fillings are also available if requested.
Crowns and Bridges. Crowns are placed on teeth that are too weak to hold a filling. Bridges span the space where one or more teeth are missing. Both are permanent and are made of natural-looking tooth-colored porcelain. Crowns and, in most cases, bridges can also be made of non-metal material for a highly cosmetic result!
Dentures. Artificial, removable replacements for natural teeth when disease, injury or years of inadequate dental care has left you with few or no healthy teeth of your own. If a removable partial is your treatment choice, we will help you restore comfort and proper function.
Sealants. Plastic coatings bonded to the chewing surfaces of permanent molars and pre-molars to protect teeth against decay-causing bacteria. Sealants are painless to apply and usually last 4 – 8 years and can be refreshed after that time if necessary.
Dental Implants. This procedure, in most cases, is available to replace missing teeth. Dental implants are small metal posts that are placed in the jaw under the gums. Replacement teeth, or crowns, are attached to the posts. The result is a comfortable and natural-looking smile. Implants can also be used with attachments or anchors to secure a full or partial denture. You’ll be able to smile, talk and eat with confidence!
Periodontics. Periodontal disease (also called gum disease) is an inflammation of the tissue around your teeth, caused by bacteria that settle at and below the gum line. If untreated in its earliest stages, periodontal disease can develop into a serious and chronic infection and result in tooth loss. In its earliest stages, the dentist will only need to remove plaque and calculus (hardened plaque) deposits from your teeth. He may also smooth (plane) any exposed tooth roots to encourage reattachment by the gums.
Endodontics. Root canal treatment is just a special kind of filling, deep into your tooth's root(s). A local anesthetic is often used to numb the area of your mouth to ensure the procedure is pain-free. The doctor will then make a small opening in the top of your tooth in order to remove the pulp from inside your tooth. The tooth is then cleaned out and shaped to a form that will receive a special filling later. This treatment may take more than one appointment to complete. Following this procedure, a final restoration is needed to adequately protect the tooth from further damage.
