We believe that making your smile the best it can be will go a long way in improving your quality of life. A beautiful smile builds confidence; healthy teeth and gums improve your overall health. It is our goal to be your partner in achieving both!

Prevention

To ensure your teeth stay strong and healthy your whole life, you should practice good oral hygiene such as brushing twice a day and having annual dental checkups. Children should be taught proper oral hygiene at an early age. “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” – Ben Franklin

Treatment

There are more dental treatment options available today to keep your smile beautiful and your teeth healthy and strong.  And, while the words "tooth filling" and "root canal" may set you on edge, today these dental procedures can be performed with little pain or inconvenience.

Happy Smiles

Everyone wants to have a beautiful smile and at Premier Dental Care, we do our very best to help you reach that goal. Teeth whtening, Invisalign, dental implants and veneers offer cosmetic results to improve the appearance of your teeth and your smile.

 


Root Canal Therapy (Endodontics)

A root canal is often needed when the pulp of the tooth gets infected due to decay or injury to the tooth. Premier Dental Care can help save your natural tooth by performing endodontic treatment. If you do not save the tooth, a bridge or dental implants will be necessary to keep your teeth from shifting out of place. Call our office if you have any symptoms of an infected tooth, such as swelling, tooth sensitivity or pain. MORE...

Pediatric Dentistry

Dr. Birckhead & Dr. Powers begin seeing children when they are 3 years old.  Their first visit with the dentist will be quick because very little treatment is required. While visiting, parents may be asked to sit and hold their child while the exam is being performed. Along with that, parents will also be asked to wait in the reception area for a short period of time. This will help build a relationship with your child. MORE...

Oral Hygiene & Periodontal Care

At some time in their life, three out of four adults will be affected with tooth loss due to periodontal disease. In adults over the age of 35, tooth loss is a direct result of periodontal disease and not cavities. Bacterial plaque causes periodontal disease and decay. Plaque builds up along the gum line and is constantly forming on your teeth. Plaque can be removed by thoroughly brushing and flossing daily. MORE...

Extractions

Tooth extraction is necessary for various reasons. Conditions such as impacted teeth, advanced periodontal disease, a severely decayed or broken tooth may lead to extraction. Treatment for an orthodontic procedure is another reason your dentist might need to remove one or more teeth. Removing only one tooth could lead to other problems such as shifting teeth, difficulty chewing and jaw joint soreness. MORE...

Dentures

The style of denture used is based on your needs. If all of your teeth have been extracted, conventional dentures will be used once the gum tissue has fully healed. When the teeth are removed the same day and the gums are not yet healed, immediate dentures are used. These protect the gums and allow them to heal. Uppers cover the roof of your mouth, or palate. Lowers are horseshoe shaped, allowing space for the tongue. MORE...

Dental Implants

Dental implants are one of the most significant advances in dentistry. They provide several benefits for dental patients who have missing teeth. When you lose one or more teeth, it allows other teeth to shift out of position which affects the contour of your face and changes your appearance. Dental implants stimulate your jawbone like your natural teeth and can help patients replace missing teeth and restore their normal appearance. MORE...

Tooth-Colored Fillings

In the past, teeth were filled with a mixture—or amalgam—of different metals. Today that is changing as more natural-looking and metal-free fillings are becoming the preferred approach.Dentists are using more tooth-like materials (composite resins and porcelains) that are both safe and predictable. The most important feature, for many people, is that they look and react more like natural teeth. MORE...

Night Guard for Bruxism (Clenching/Grinding teeth)

nightguard  is the best treatment for bruxism. A night guard is a thin piece of hard plastic made from impressions of your teeth. The nightguard is hard enough to be durable, but since it is softer than teeth it will protect them from wear. When the nightguard is tried in, it is adjusted to fit your bite evenly and smoothly. This appointment may take a little time, but it is very important that the fit of the night guard be just right. MORE...

ARESTIN

If you have periodontal (gum) disease, SRP is needed to help improve the health of your teeth and gums. Bacteria are the cause of gum disease. That's why your dental professional may recommend ARESTIN®. It is an antibiotic that helps kill the bacteria at the root of the problem. ARESTIN® is different from an antibiotic you take as a pill, because it's placed right where you need it. MORE...

Sealants

Sealants are highly effective in preventing decay on the biting surfaces of your chewing teeth. Applying sealants is a simple procedure in which a tooth-colored acrylic coating is painted onto the surface of the tooth. This effectively “seals” the deep grooves where decay is most likely to start. A toothbrush bristle is too big to remove bacteria from pits and fissures that may occur on the surface of the tooth. MORE...

Whitening

Many teeth whitening systems are available, including whitening toothpastes, over-the-counter gels, rinses, strips, and trays, and whitening agents obtained from a dentist. Teeth whitening is ideal for people who have healthy, un-restored teeth (no fillings) and gums. Individuals with yellow tones to their teeth respond best. But this cosmetic procedure is not recommended for everyone. MORE...
