One of the advances Dr. Estep is most thrilled about is the science that now allows us to reverse small cavities instead of drilling your teeth and placing fillings. In some cases, you can actually REGROW your damaged enamel and prevent the need for drilling and filling of your teeth. Using a system of minimally-invasive diagnostic technology along with customized treatment rinses, toothpastes, and sometimes special chewing gum, Dr. Estep can customize a treatment therapy to regrow your enamel, heal your damaged tooth from within, and prevent your need for drilling and filling.
Dr. Estep frequently treats small cavities this way instead of drilling and filling teeth. Early detection of cavities is the key to this treatment. That’s why Dr. Estep wants to see you for regular healthy visits. She practices progressive and preventive dentistry so that you can receive these (and more) benefits.
Are you ready to get started? If you’ve never seen Dr. Estep and you’re due for a checkup and cleaning, we encourage you to start with scheduling a “New Patient Checkup Exam and Cleaning.” As part of your checkup exam, Dr. Estep will do a thorough evaluation of your teeth and mouth and discuss with you the health of your teeth and any need for potential bridge or restorative treatment. This appointment will take about 2 hours and will include a cleaning.
Another option is to start with a Limited Evaluation and Single Xray appointment with Dr. Estep using our interactive calendar. Just follow the steps to get your appointment scheduled. Please allow 1 hour for the appointment.
