General Dental Checkups in Bonita Springs, FL

General Checkups

During your check-up, our friendly dental team will perform a thorough evaluation, looking for any signs of decay, gum disease, or other dental issues. We will also check for any abnormalities in your bite, jaw, and soft tissues.

Our Dental Check-Up typically includes:

Visual Examination:

Our dentist will visually inspect your teeth, gums, and surrounding oral structures for any signs of problems such as cavities, gum inflammation, or oral lesions.

Digital X-Rays:

X-rays may be taken to get a detailed view of your teeth and jawbone, allowing us to detect any hidden issues such as cavities between teeth, impacted teeth, or bone loss.

Professional Cleaning:

Our skilled dental hygienists will thoroughly clean your teeth to remove plaque, tartar, and stains that may have accumulated since your last visit. This helps prevent cavities and gum disease and keeps your smile looking its best.

Gum Health Assessment:

We will assess the health of your gums by measuring the depth of your gum pockets. This helps us identify signs of gum disease and determine the appropriate treatment if necessary.

Oral Cancer Screening:

We will check for any signs of oral cancer by examining your tongue, gums, throat, and other oral tissues. Early detection is key to successful treatment, so this screening is an essential part of your check-up.

Discussion and Education:

Our dentist will discuss the findings of your check-up with you and provide personalized recommendations for maintaining or improving your oral health. We believe in empowering our patients with knowledge so they can make informed decisions about their dental care.

Nutritional Counseling:

We'll provide you with personalized education on how different nutrients and dietary choices can affect your oral health. This includes discussions on the role of sugars and carbohydrates in tooth decay, the importance of essential vitamins and minerals for strong teeth and gums, and how acidic foods and drinks can contribute to enamel erosion.
Visiting the Dentist while Pregnant

If you are planning to have a baby it is a good idea to visit the dentist before the delivery of your new family member to treat any teeth or gum disease to reduce bad bacteria in your mouth and prevent pathogens from transmitting to the newborn with kisses and close contact. If your smile is important for you, it will be important for your children too.

Dental care is an important aspect of total prenatal care. When the mother has a healthy mouth and teeth, she is protecting her unborn child. Untreated tooth and periodontal disease can increase the risk of giving birth to preterm, low-birth-weight baby.

Pediatric Dentistry

Once the first tooth is out, it is time for the first dental visit. Early checkups help prevent cavities and tooth decay, which can lead to pain, trouble concentrating and other medical issues. Our goal is to engage our patients in a preventing approach to minimize the risk of oral diseases in a fun setting for our children. Call today to learn more.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are the closest you can get to healthy, natural teeth. They allow you to live the way you want to – confidently eating, smiling, laughing, talking, kissing and enjoying all of your everyday activities without worrying about your teeth. There are two main types of implants: Endosteal: These dental implants are placed in the jawbone. Typically made of titanium and shaped like small screws, they are the most commonly used type of implant. Subperiosteal: These dental implants are placed under the gum but on, or above, the jawbone.

What are Dental Implants?

Think of dental implants as artificial tooth roots, similar in shape to screws. When dental implants are placed in your jawbone (A), they bond with your natural bone. They become a sturdy base for supporting one or more artificial teeth, called crowns.

A connector – known as an abutment – is placed on top of the dental implant to hold and support your crowns. The crowns are custom-made to match your natural teeth and fit your mouth.

Modern dental implants have been used successfully for over 30 years. They are the strongest devices available to support replacement teeth – and even better, they allow these new teeth to feel, look and function naturally.

When performed by a trained and experienced dental implant dentist, dental implant surgery is one of the safest and most predictable procedures in dentistry.

Gum Recession

Beautiful smiles are the result of several elements: the teeth, the gums and the lips. Tissues surrounding your teeth can be added (Grafting) or subtracted (Crown lengthening) to give you a healthy and natural appearance, while providing a proper framework for esthetic crowns or veneers.

Traditional Gum Grafting

During this procedure, the doctor may remove tissue from the roof of the patient’s mouth (i.e., a Connective-Tissue Graft or a Free Gingival Graft) or from a location close to the exposed root she is covering (i.e., a Pedicle Graft. She uses the tissue she collects to cover the exposed roots along the patient’s gumline.

The AlloDerm® Gum Graft

We can perform soft tissue grafting in multiple areas of the mouth without having to remove the patients own tissue. When AlloDerm® gum grating procedure is used, soft tissue grafting material from donated human tissue is used to cover exposed roots.

Keep your smile healthy and confident with periodontics

Gum disease is a chronic inflammatory disease that, when left untreated, can eventually result in tooth loss. It’s often identified by red, swollen or inflamed gums, chronic bad breath or bleeding when brushing or flossing, and can cause discomfort as it enters into more advanced stages, referred to as periodontitis.

To eliminate harmful, gum disease-causing bacteria and restore the health of your gums, your doctor may recommend gum disease treatment. Various treatment options include scaling and root planning for mild cases and debridement with osseous surgery for more advanced cases. We can determine which option is right for you at your consultation.

Periodontal treatments aim to treat gum disease and any damage it may have caused by:

What we offer:

Restorative Dentistry

A dental restoration or dental filling is a treatment to restore the function, integrity, and morphology of missing tooth structure resulting from caries or external trauma as well as to the replacement of such structure supported by dental implants. Restorative dentistry refers to management and procedures that your dentist performs to keep your mouth healthy and functional. These procedures include putting in dental implants, dentures, fillings, and crowns.

What is Dental Restoration?

Restorations are the various ways your dentist can replace or restore missing teeth or missing parts of the tooth structure. Tooth structure can be missing due to decay, deterioration (weakening) of a previously placed restoration, or fracture of a tooth.

What is Restorative Dentistry? If you look up “restore” in the dictionary it reads, “to return something to an earlier or original condition by repairing it, cleaning it, etc.” The beauty of restorative dentistry is that it can often go beyond restoration to actual improvement of the original!

Even though most of us have access to extremely good dental care, there are still millions of Americans who suffer from tooth loss. The most common causes of tooth loss are tooth decay, periodontal disease, or injury. For a long time the only way to treat tooth loss was with bridges and dentures, but now there is another option — dental implant surgery.

orthodontic services

Orthodontic services

Orthodontics is a specialty within dentistry that focuses on correcting bites, occlusion, and the straightness of teeth. The purpose of orthodontic treatment is to create a healthy bite—straight teeth that properly meet opposing teeth in the opposite jaw. A good bite makes it easier for you to bite, chew and speak.

What we offer:

Sedation Dentistry

Do you feel stressed when faced with a visit to the dentist? Ask us about sedation dentistry. It’s ideal for patients who have experienced discomfort or anxiety during previous dental visits. We’ll eliminate any stress and anxiety from your visit without our sedation dentistry. You’ll be relaxed and pain-free while we work.

We offer:

The rapidly advancing medical technology creates a new era of painless dentistry. Dentists and their patients are no longer satisfied with merely curing the diseases, but they also want a painless treatment. In the felid, of anesthesia, this has been made possible with the continual development of nitrous oxide and oxygen sedation.

Since its discovery more than 160 years ago, nitrous oxide has been used to provide pain and anxiety relief for patients undergoing surgical procedures with a remarkable safety record. It is proven to be a safe and effective approach, easy to grasp and readily accepted, an art that is truly welcomed in today’s modern dental practice.

Let us take care of your dental needs so you can keep smiling.

CT Scan

CT Scan

In dental clinics, CT scans are often used to obtain detailed 3D images of the oral and maxillofacial structures, including teeth, jawbones, and surrounding tissues. These scans provide valuable information for diagnosis, treatment planning, and evaluation in various dental procedures. Here are some common applications:

Implant Planning

CT scans help in precise implant placement by assessing bone density, location of nerves, sinuses, and adjacent structures. This aids in determining the optimal size, position, and angulation of dental implants.


CT scans assist in diagnosing complex root canal cases, locating hidden canals, evaluating root fractures, and assessing the proximity of root tips to important structures.


CT scans provide accurate 3D images of teeth, jaws, and facial structures, aiding in orthodontic treatment planning, assessment of impacted teeth, and evaluation of skeletal relationships.

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

CT scans aid in surgical planning for procedures such as impacted tooth extraction, jaw surgeries, bone grafting, and diagnosing pathologies like cysts, tumors, and fractures.
Face Scan

A face scan refers to the process of capturing and analyzing the unique features of an individual’s face. It is often performed using 3D scanning technologies, such as structured light or laser scanners, to create a digital representation of the face. Face scanning technologies can be used in dental clinics for various purposes, including:

1. Treatment Planning: Face scans provide detailed 3D information about a patient’s facial structure, including the relationship between the teeth, jaws, and soft tissues. This aids in creating personalized treatment plans for orthodontic treatment, orthognathic surgery, and smile design.

2. Prosthetic Dentistry: Face scans help in designing and fabricating customized dental prosthetics, such as crowns, bridges, and dentures, that closely match the patient’s natural facial features and esthetics.

3. Cosmetic Dentistry: Face scans assist in smile design simulations, allowing patients to visualize potential outcomes of cosmetic dental procedures like veneers or teeth whitening.

Intraoral Scan

Intraoral scans have become increasingly popular in dental clinics due to their advantages over traditional dental impressions:

1. Restorative Dentistry: Intraoral scans create digital impressions of the teeth, eliminating the need for messy impression materials. The digital models can be used to design and fabricate precise dental restorations like crowns, bridges, and inlays/onlays.

2. Orthodontics: Intraoral scans are used to create digital models of the teeth, facilitating the design and fabrication of clear aligners (such as Invisalign) for orthodontic treatment. The scans also aid in monitoring tooth movement progress.

3. Bite Analysis and Occlusion: Intraoral scans capture accurate bite registrations, allowing dentists to assess the patient’s occlusion and make necessary adjustments for restorative or orthodontic treatments.

4. Patient Education: Intraoral scans provide patients with a visual representation of their oral condition, aiding in patient education and communication about treatment options.
