We design a customized oral “wellness” program for each individual. When you see us for the first time, we will do a complete examination. We evaluate all your existing oral conditions, diagnose problems and provide any treatment plan necessary to restore your mouth to ideal health.
From complete gingival and restorative health to advanced stages of gum disease and tooth decay, our team creates a custom-designed program to either maintain or restore every mouth to ideal health. We provide a full menu of periodontal services, including deep cleanings, minor surgical and non-surgical treatments, and advanced dental restorations.
Your initial examination includes an oral cancer screening. We check for lumps and bumps that are sometimes overlooked by the physician.
You may not have heard the name CEREC before, but you’ll be glad you heard of it today. It’s the world’s most advanced cad-cam technology – a computer guided system for creating crowns and restorations right here in our dental practice.
Why is this important? Because it lets us do in an hour what used to take weeks.
Before CEREC, getting crowns or other restorations took two weeks at minimum. First, you’d be measured for the restoration at one appointment. Then, you’d wait around for weeks while a dental lab created your new permanent crown. You’d finally have a second appointment to get the permanent crown seated and fitted after living with an unstable “temporary” for in between appointments.
CEREC took this two appointment, week-long process and shortened it to about an hour. That’s right – with the laser precision of Cerec, Dr. Ruparelia and Dr. Hagert can create high quality, durable restorations that look, feel, and function just like a natural tooth in about an hour!
Dr. Ruparelia has equipped Cascades with very advanced and sophisticated dental laser technology. He and his team are trained and experienced in using lasers to make dentistry easier and more comfortable for our patients.
Lasers let us be extremely precise in tooth repair and gum treatment. Precision means less damage to surrounding tissues and shorter recovery times. Laser treatment is often less painful as well.
