What to Expect During Your Caribbean Dental Visit
What we do
Services We Offer
Caribbean Dental offers a full complement of general dentistry services. We also offer restorative and cosmetic dentistry options.
Our preventive care includes a thorough dental exam with x-rays and a professional cleaning.
Prevention is the best way to keep dental costs down and maintain good oral health. Many of our patients come to us with the need for fillings. In most cases we use tooth-colored composite filling material to fill cavities. Composite fillings look and feel so natural that it is difficult to distinguish the filling from the natural tooth.
Repairing broken, cracked or chipped teeth can often be done with dental bonding. In some instances, a bonding material is used to basically glue the parts of the tooth back together again. When this is not possible, bonding material along with composite resin may be used to make repairs. If a tooth has sustained major damage, we may recommend that it be crowned in order to protect it from further damage and to add strength and stability.
In some cases, tooth decay has advanced to the point where the
nerve of the tooth is involved.
In these situations, if the bulk of the tooth is salvageable, a root canal procedure may be warranted. In this procedure, the nerve of the tooth, which extends down the root and into the jawbone, must be removed. Special instruments are used to clean out the dead nerve and sterilize the root canal. It is then sealed off and the remainder of the tooth is filled with an appropriate filling. Teeth that have undergone root canal therapy grow brittle over time since the nerve that once nourished the tooth is now gone. Generally, a crown is placed on these teeth to provide protection, strength and stability.
Another service provided is periodontal therapy. When gums become diseased, it is important to treat the condition and restore health before the situation worsens and causes teeth to fall out. Treatment begins with a thorough cleaning of the teeth.
When a tooth or teeth are missing, a host of problems can surface due to the space left. Restorative dentistry replaces the missing tooth or teeth.
Dentures are removable devices that replace teeth. A partial denture is used when several teeth are missing. A full denture is used when a full arch of teeth, either upper or lower, needs to be replaced. Bridge work consists of crowns placed on the teeth that are adjacent to a space left by one or more missing teeth. Between the two crowns is an attachment of artificial teeth to replace the missing teeth.
At Caribbean Dental, we are committed to helping you reach your best oral health and getting your best smile. That may call for cosmetic dentistry. Teeth whitening, porcelain veneers and Invisalign are part of our cosmetic dentistry offerings.
We want to make sure all our patients feel comfortable and relaxed during their dental procedure. Some patients need a little extra help in relaxing. Dr. Li is certified in Level ll Conscious Sedation.
