We are constantly striving to provide our patients eith the finest dental care available.  Our investment in advanced technology means a long-term investment in your future, because state-of-the-art technology invites informed decision making and enable patients to make wise choices concerning their oral health.  Dr. Hamilton offers the latest in dental technology for your benefit!

Initial Oral Examination


Your initial oral examination includes a visual examination, charting, periodontal probing, diagnosis and treatment recommendations. We will also take x-rays, which includes the panoramic x-ray for proper diagnosis of the anterior (front) and posterior (back) teeth as well as the bite-wing x-ray series for proper diagnosis of proximal decay of posterior teeth.

Comprehensive Oral Examination

The comprehensive examination is a process in which Dr. Hamilton takes necessary records to provide a thorough diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment plan.  This examination will include: Oral Cancer Screening, Periodontal Examination, Occlusal Examination, Caries (cavities) Examination, and Tempro-Mandibular Joint (TMJ) Examination.

Digital Xrays

This form of computerized radiography uses a standard dental x-ray generator as its radiation source.  An intra-oral sensor is placed in the mouth and collects the image.  The digital x-ray results in clearer more diagnostic pictures while reducing the amount of radiation to the patient.

Restorative Procedures:

Composite/White Fillings

Made of tooth-colored material, composite fillings restore the teeth's natural beauty.  Composite fillings can be matced very closely to your natural tooth color and are virtually indistinguishable from non-restored teeth.  Composite fillings are excellent options for front teeth, but may be suggested for selected sites on molars as well.  The composites we use have proven to be extremely durable and stain resistant.

Onlays

When you do not need a full crown, onlays may be the solution.  The onlay procedure is a restoration in which composite, procelain, or gold is applied to a tooth surface to provide support.  Our patients who have had onlays have given us positive comments about their appearance!  We make most of our porcelain onlays right in our office in the same appointment!!!!

Implants

Implants are synthetic structures that are placed in the area of the tooth normally occupied by the root. Implants are anchored to the jawbone or metal framework on the bone and act as a foundation for an artificial tooth or permanent bridge. In some cases, implants can be used to attach dentures.

Veneers

Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain or plastic cemented over the front of your teeth to change their color or shape. Veneers are used on teeth with uneven surfaces or are chipped, discolored, oddly shaped, unevenly spaced or crooked. Read More...

Crowns and Bridges

Crowns are synthetic caps, usually made of a material like porcelain, placed on the top of a tooth. Crowns are typically used to restore a tooth's function and appearance following a restorative procedure such as a root canal. When decay in a tooth has become so advanced that large portions of the tooth must be removed, crowns are often used to restore the tooth. Read More...

Full and Partial Dentures

Parital dentures are indicated if some serviceable teeth are present for support in conjunction with the gums and jawbone.  A partial denture, though removable, provides form and function replacement for missing teeth.

Full dentures are used if there are not any teeth left for support.  The full denture covers more of the jaw than a partial denture and is partly held in place by a natural vacuum.

Teeth Whitening

Whitening procedures have effectively restored the smile of people with stained, dull, or discolored teeth.The darker tissue of your teeth, the dentin, can become exposed as the outer layer of enamel is worn away by the effects of aging or things like caffeine and tobacco. Read More...

Cerec®

Cerec is a method of computerized dentistry that creates ceramic dental restorations such as crowns and onlays chairside in a single appointment.  Since the final restoration is dellivered at the same appointment, there is no need for a temporary crown.

Invisalign®

Invisalign's® invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners will give you the beautiful straight teeth you've always wanted. And best of all, no one can tell you're wearing them. Invisalign is great for adults and teenagers. Read More...

Root Canal Therapy

Root canals are tiny passageways that branch off from beneath the top of the tooth, coursing their way vertically downward, until they reach the tip of the root. Read More...

Toothaches

Simple toothaches can often be relieved by rinsing the mouth to clear it of debris and other matter. Sometimes, a toothache can be caused or aggravated by a piece of debris lodged between the tooth and another tooth. Avoid placing an aspirin between your tooth and gum to relieve pain, because the dissolving aspirin can actually harm your gum tissue. Read More...

Dental Emergencies

We hope that you will never experience a dental emergency, but if you do, we want you to know that we are always available.  

During office hours, if you are having pain or experience an emergency - such as bleeding, swelling, or trauma - please call us immediately so that we may schedule the best available time for you.  We will do everything possible to treat your problem immediately and attend to your needs.

If an emergency occurs after hours, we can be reached 24 hours a day.  Dr. Hamilton can be reached through our office telephone number, at (919)731-4447.  At the sound of the beep, please leave your name, telephone number, and a brief message as to the nature of your dental emergency, and Dr. Hamilton will respond to your call.

Incidentally, you will be happy to know that due to the thoroughness of our comprehensive examinations, our patients experience very few emergencies.
