Lisa Siddall, DDS, PC offers a full spectrum of holistic general dentistry and preventive dental services, including:
Professional Teeth Cleanings (Prophylaxis)
Dental prophylaxis is a cleaning procedure that thoroughly cleans the teeth. It is an important preventive measure to help stop the progression of gingivitis and periodontal disease. We recommend our orally healthy patients receive this type of procedure twice a year.
Gum Disease Screening
Early detection of gum disease can prevent tooth loss years down the road. We will carefully evaluate the attachment levels of your gum tissue, and pinpoint areas that may need interceptive periodontal therapy.
Oral Cancer Screening
Tobacco users aren’t the only ones who should be concerned about oral cancer. Oral cancer is on the rise. That’s why at Lisa Siddall, DDS, PC, we provide oral cancer screenings as part of a regular-checkup to all of our patients over the age of 18.
CariVu™ Caries Detection
Traditional bite-wing x-rays can be uncomfortable, not only for children, but for many adults. CariVu caries detection device uses patented transillumination technology to comfortably detect cavities and cracks in our patients' teeth with higher accuracy.
Our practice uses digital x-rays to produce enhanced computer images of our patient’s teeth, gums, and other oral structures and conditions. Digital x-rays are key to early detection and effective treatment of dental problems and expose our patients to lower levels of radiation than traditional film x-rays.
Mercury-Free Dental Fillings
Studies have shown that many people are sensitive to the materials contained inside amalgam fillings – including mercury. Instead of using metal fillings, Dr. Siddall completes all fillings using composite, tooth-colored materials and a whole body wellness approach. Dr. Siddall can also safely remove your mercury fillings and replace them with composite fillings.
The Wand® Pain-Free Injection
At Lisa Siddall, DDS, PC, we offer The Wand, a state-of-the-art digital platform for local anesthesia. This pain-free injection is more comfortable than a traditional syringe, reducing your pain and dental anxiety!
Gentle Tooth Extractions
Extraction is a last resort, but sometimes it is necessary. Badly infected teeth can jeopardize the health of their neighbors, including healthy teeth and gums.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
The best time to have wisdom teeth removed is during a patient's late teenage years or early 20s. These immature wisdom teeth are smaller, so surgery is less complicated and potentially less painful. If your wisdom teeth have not started to erupt, we will use x-ray imaging to locate them and determine if it’s time to have them removed.
