Keeping your teeth and gums healthy is essential for your overall well-being. However, a bright and attractive smile can give you the confidence you need in your personal and professional life. That's why Sound Dentistry, a downtown Seattle Dentist clinic, is committed to giving you all the tools you need to have healthy teeth and gums for life.
You can take advantage of a number of dental services when you visit our facility; however, we will perform a detailed oral exam to determine which treatments are right for you. Your oral exam will consist of a tooth evaluation, as well as a bite analysis, which lets your Dentist know the exact position of your teeth, in case braces or retainers are needed. You can also be evaluated for oral cancer. The earlier the dental team is able to find signs or risk factors of cancer, the sooner you can get the treatment you need to restore your health. Sound Dentistry also provides TMJ screening. If TMJ symptoms are detected, your Dentist can give you practical solutions and treatment for this issue, so you can prevent further damage to your jaw and experience a significant improvement in your health, such as the elimination of headaches or inflammation.
Our Downtown Seattle Dentist office also provides Philips Zoom teeth whitening services. This service only takes about 90 minutes, and your teeth could get as much as eight shades whiter after just one appointment! The ingredients used in the whitening system are safe, and the procedure rarely causes any tooth sensitivity. The results of the teeth whitening also last longer than home systems, so you can have a winning smile for months on end.
At Sound Dentistry, we understand that there are times when you may need dental implants. If your teeth have been damaged due to extreme decay, or you've lost teeth due to an injury, our qualified team can customize full or partial dental implant restorations for you that will help you get your confidence back. The implants take between two and six months to fuse to your bone, so you can be sure that implants will stay in place. After the fusing process is complete, your Dentist will craft a new replacement tooth for you, and attach the newly designed tooth to your fused implant to give you the perfect smile. The dental implant restorations we use are also made from natural looking materials, so no one will be able to tell the difference between the implants and your natural teeth. You'll also be able to eat and drink like normal, and you'll likely feel much more at ease in work-related and social situations, knowing that your smile is intact.
Unlike many other dental practices, our downtown Seattle Dentist clinic has an in-house dental lab. That means that each of the dental implant restorations, crowns, bridges, that we fabricate for our patients are created at our facility. Repairs and processing for full and partial dentures can also be performed at our office. The in-house lab gives us the opportunity to provide the best materials and methods for meeting your dental needs. An accessible lab also gives our team the chance to make adjustments to your dental implants or materials in a timely manner.
We understand that it can be a little scary to visit the Dentist, and Sound Dentistry is here to ease your fears. In addition to providing you with detailed and thorough consultations before performing any dental work, our dental office also offers The Wand, which is a pain-free form of anesthesia. Technology guides the injection needle, so you'll get the right amount of medicine to the correct area of your mouth. The medication is safe enough to use on children, and The Wand keeps too much medication from collecting on your gums, which can cause additional discomfort during and after your dental procedure. We know that while tooth health is important, the health of the parts of the body around your teeth contribute to your health and the beauty of your smile as well. If you need emergency services for a tooth that has fractured or is chipped, our downtown Seattle Dentist clinic staff can treat you right away, so you won't have to wait long to get back to looking your best.
In between visits, you can refer to our website for practical and effective tips related to your dental health. For instance, we recommend that you come in for a professional teeth cleaning every six months. This helps to remove excess tartar and plaque from your teeth, and reduces the risk of oral cancer and tooth decay. We also provide you with tips on how to properly brush and floss your teeth, making it easier for your true personality to shine through by way of your smile.
Your Dental Hygienist will even evaluate the buildup on your teeth and gums during a routine cleaning to determine if you are at risk for gum disease, and will suggest alternate dental care options for you. Our dental practice also provides fluoride services for children and adults to keep teeth strong and healthy.
No matter what your dental care needs are, Sound Dentistry is here to help. Our Dentists will walk you through every step of your dental procedure, and even let you know what to expect after you've had your dental work done. Be sure to contact us for your regular dental needs, and let us handle your emergency dental situations as well.
