Comprehensive Dental Care
Dr. Kathie Allen provides personalized plans of care for all of her patients. Our office provides exceptional dental care as well as facial cosmetic procedures.
Routine Dental Care
Visiting our Venice FL office for your healthy recare appointment is an important part of both your oral health plan and your overall physical health. At these appointments you will have a professional teeth cleaning; an exam of your teeth, tongue and gums; oral cancer screening. If x-rays are needed , we will take digital images to examine the structures below the gumline. For patients with Periodontal (gum) disease, we provide a Soft Tissue Management program that include Scaling and Root Planing (deep cleaning) to remove the calculus (tartar) and bacteria from the tooth and root surfaces.
Cavities no longer mean a life sentence with obvious silver fillings. We use composite resin, a material that closely resembles the color of your natural teeth.
Crowns (caps), are used in a variety of situations to cover a natural tooth or an implant. They are used to cover a tooth that is weakened from damage caused by caries (decay) and/or fractures, providing structural strength. While your crown is at the dental lab being created to fit precisely, Dr. Allen will fabricate a provisional (temporary) crown for protection of the prepped tooth.
Dental bridges are used to bridge the gap between teeth if one or more is missing. Conventional bridges consist of crowns on the teeth adjacent to the gap (abutments) with the false tooth/teeth cemented between them. We also place implant-supported dental bridges. In these cases, implants are placed to hold the bridge in position, or the false teeth are held between two implant-supported crowns.
Conventional dentures consist of prosthetic teeth attached to a gum-colored base. They primarily rely on suction to stay in position in the mouth. Properly fitted dentures should function as normal teeth for eating and speaking, and are removable for cleaning.
Implant-supported dentures are similar in nature, but are attached to implants placed in the jaw for increased stability. These dentures are also removable for cleaning.
Oral Surgery Restorations
Patients who need root canals, dental implants, or other oral surgery procedures are referred to highly qualified oral surgeons and periodontists. These doctors work closely with Dr. Allen, and she provides restorations as needed after the surgeries.
Whitening and Other Cosmetic Services
For optimal results, we recommend in-office, professional whitening. We can produce faster results with little to no sensitivity. We also offer take-home trays to whiten and maintain your bright smile.
