Dental Implants

Patients who suffer from missing teeth struggle with simple tasks like eating and speaking and become more susceptible to further dental issues such as tooth decay. That’s why at Dow’s Lake Dental, Dr. El-Hawary specializes in dental implants to help give patients the smile of their dreams and protect their oral health in the process.

Restorations & Fillings

Dental fillings and repairs using restorative materials used to repair teeth which have been compromised due to cavities or trauma.

Dental sealants, usually applied to the chewing surface of teeth, act as a barrier against decay-causing bacteria. Most often, the sealants are applied to the back teeth, e.g., premolars and molars.

Root Canal Therapy

Root canal treatments on diseased or abscessed teeth. Once a tooth is injured, cracked or decayed, it is necessary to open the tooth and clean out the infected tissue in the center. This space is then filled and the opening sealed.

Crowns and Bridges

Crowns are dental restorations that protect damaged, cracked or broken teeth. Dental crowns often referred to as caps, sit over the entire part of the tooth that lies above the gum line. Crowns are also placed on top of dental implants. Bridges are a method to replace a missing tooth or teeth. Bridges are false teeth anchored in place by neighboring teeth. A bridge consists of two crowns on the anchoring teeth along with the false tooth in the center.

A severely damaged tooth may need to be extracted. Permanent teeth may also need to be removed for orthodontic treatment.

Implants are complete replacement of missing teeth. A titanium screw is placed in the bone and a crown is placed on top of the implant to provide a new tooth.

Dentures are prosthetic devices replacing lost teeth. There are two types of dentures – partial and full. Full dentures are often referred to as “false teeth”.

Oral Cancer Examination

Oral cancer starts in the cells of the mouth, tongue or throat. Oral cancer screening is usually a routine part of a dental examination. In this exam, your dentist will feel for lumps or irregular tissue changes in your neck, head, face, and inside your mouth. Your dentist will also look for sores or discolored tissue in your mouth.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth naturally darken with age, however staining may be caused by various foods and beverages such as coffee, tea and berries, some drugs such as tetracycline, smoking, or a trauma to a tooth. We offer various in-office and take-home whitening options. We’ll have you smiling bright at the Heart & Crown in no time.

Veneers are strong, thin pieces of ceramic or resin materials that are bonded to the teeth. Veneers are used to repair chipped, decayed or stained teeth and may help in closing gaps between teeth.

Gum Hygiene Teatments

Periodontal or gum disease is an infection that affects the gums and jaw bone, which can lead to a loss of gum and teeth. There are two major stages — gingivitis and periodontitis. Gingivitis is the milder and reversible form; periodontal disease is often more severe. In some cases, gum surgery will be required to reverse the effect of the disease.

Conscious Sedation (laughing gas)

With conscious sedation, you will remain awake throughout your procedure but will be in a deep state of relaxation. It is recommended that patients receiving conscious sedation have a parent, spouse, or friend accompany them to appointments because it can take several hours for the sedative to wear off and driving may be unsafe.

Migraine Treatment

Some conservative treatments that we offer include oral splints or night guards, trigger point injections, and botox.

Sleep Apnea & Snoring Supplies

Snoring may be a sign of a breathing problem called obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Both can be treated with a simple custom-made oral appliance that is worn at night.
