Dental Care for Your Entire Family
From regularly scheduled dental cleaning and restorative procedures to teeth grinding devices, our office is equipped to handle all your oral health care needs. To help you understand your options, we've included descriptions of some of our leading services on this page.
For more information, please check out our Patient Education page.
Initial Oral Examination
Your initial oral examination includes a thorough medical and dental history, visual examination, charting, periodontal probing, diagnosis and treatment recommendations. We will also take necessary x-rays, which include x-rays of the anterior (front) and posterior (back) teeth as well as the cavity detecting x-rays for proper diagnosis of decay of posterior teeth.
Digital Diagnostic Radiology
Our state-of-the-art x-ray technology offers many benefits:
Lets us examine x-ray images in fine detail unavailable through traditional x-rays. As Dr. Saam examines the images, he can review the images in a variety of perspectives, allowing him to more closely fine tune his assessment, diagnosis and treatment, providing imagery not feasible with traditional x-ray technology
Digital diagnostic technology eliminates the use of lead foils in traditional x-ray packets; it also eliminates the need for the chemicals used to develop traditional x-rays.
Digital diagnostic technology dramatically reduces and provides significantly less exposure to x-ray radiation.
Patient Involvement in Co-Diagnosis and Treatment:
Because the images are immediately viewable to our patients, Dr. Saam and his staff are able to involve our patients in better understanding your needs and subsequent treatment.

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.

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.
