PerioTherapy

Most Americans experience some form of periodontal disease, often without realizing it. Periodontal disease is chiefly responsible for adult tooth loss, bleeding gums, bad breath, and receding gums. Periodontal disease has also been linked to other health problems, including heart disease and diabetes.

The truth is, periodontal disease is easily prevented with proper hygiene, home care, and professional treatment. If diagnosed in its early stages, gum disease treatments are easier, less invasive, and more effective. Your visit with Dr. Lyons includes a complete evaluation of your gums and supportive tissues. With Dr. Lyons, you will have access to advanced periodontal therapy to heal and restore your oral health.

Tooth Extractions

Every effort is made to keep all of your teeth, as it is always the best and preferred solution. In the instance where a tooth cannot be saved, it may be recommended to extract the tooth. This extraction can be done here in our office instead of your being referred to a specialist in the area. If you imagine a tooth extraction to be an unpleasant experience, you may be surprised at the comfortable, gentle care you receive from our team. And, after the extraction, Dr. Lyons will present you with several treatment options designed to restore your smile.

Fillings

When the decay has been taken out of the tooth, it is replaced with "filling" material. In the past, amalgam (silver/mercury) fillings were placed into the cleaned-out portion of the tooth. With advancements in dentistry, you can now have tooth-colored fillings instead of silver fillings.

NightGuard

When your teeth do not align properly while you sleep, the muscles in your face and jaw cannot relax, resulting in headaches, migraines, neck pain, and other ailments. Additionally chipped, cracked, or broken teeth may occur, as well as periodontal (gum tissue) breakdown.

A NightGuard is a customized bite appliance that is worn while you sleep. Dr. Lyons specially designs your nightguard so that it will allow your jaw to relax and rest while you slumber, eliminating the issues that stem from clenching and grinding. If you think you may suffer from nighttime clenching and grinding of your teeth (bruxism), ask Dr. Lyons to place you on the path toward relief today.
