General Dentistry Services

Masters of Dentistry
Our goal at Victus Dental is to break the cycle of anxiety associated with going to the dentist. in addition to our welcoming team that takes care of you from the moment you walk through the door, we want you to feel well informed on what we do. One of the most basic tenants of general dentistry is dental cleanings and hygiene.
Dental cleanings begin with an examination of the mouth by one of our qualified hygienists. They’ll look for anything concerning and bring in our doctor if anything of note is present. Usually, they’ll proceed to remove plaque with a small tool that allows them to scrape it from teeth. This can be a bit uncomfortable, but the process can be shortened by consistent brushing and flossing in between appointments. We then brush your teeth with a gritty toothpaste and high-powered toothbrush that results in a deep clean. After the brushing, we will floss, rinse and apply fluoride. Flouride serves as a protector for your teeth and defends you from getting cavities.
Dental cleanings are always easier when you do your part at home, so make sure to brush at least twice a day and floss frequently for simplified cleaning.
Fillings are used to replace decayed portions of teeth, broken or cracked teeth, and worn down areas. For your added comfort, we use the groundbreaking Solea laser that preps your teeth for fillings without any need for numbing or anesthesia. Receiving fillings is faster and more efficient now that we have engineered a way to remove the numbing step.
For regular fillings, we first remove any decay or debris and proceed with the filling. Our doctor will then polish the filling and you won’t even be able to tell it’s there. Fillings are important to maintaining excellent oral health if you fall victim to cavities or tooth decay. While we love seeing your smiling face, the best way to avoid the need for fillings is to keep up with your routine of brushing and flossing, especially after treats that are very sugary.
At Victus Dental, we strive to give you top-notch service that works for you no matter what stage of life. We know aesthetics are an important component in oral healthcare, so we are proud to offer tooth-colored fillings.
With tooth-colored fillings, there are just a few more steps involved in the application process. After the initial cleaning of the tooth, the filling material will be applied in layers. After each layer, we will cure the layer with light so that it hardens into place. We will repeat this step until the tooth is filled, and then file down the tooth-colored material so it flows seamlessly with your real tooth.
Crowns and bridges are used to replace either a partially lost tooth or missing teeth. Missing teeth aren’t only an aesthetic concern, the gap they leave can cause teeth to shift in undesirable ways resulting in a bad bite.
Crowns are used to cap damaged teeth or at the end of implants. Fillings are usually the first step when approaching tooth decay, but if there is more damage to the tooth than can be fixed by a filling, we will put on a crown. Crowns help your teeth maintain their shape, size, and more.
Instead of being used for repairs, bridges are used to replace one or more teeth. They act as an actual bridge between existing teeth to fill the gaps left by missing teeth. Bridges adhere to crowns placed on the teeth on either side of the gap. Then, false teeth are put in to fill the spaces. Bridges not only fill out your smile, but they can also help with proper chewing, speaking, and maintaining your face shape.
While crowns and bridges are effective for patients who have one or more missing teeth, there are cases where a denture or partial denture is a more appropriate response. If you have more than a few missing teeth, you may need dentures in order to do speak, eat and keep your face from sagging.
No one wants to be without teeth, so we offer immediate dentures that are made prior to the removal of any teeth and can be affixed to your mouth the day of your appointment. However, because the mouth shifts a lot during the healing process, we will need to see you again for adjustments throughout this period.
Traditional dentures are placed on top of the gums around eight weeks after the teeth are removed. These dentures are ideal for people who are missing a lot of teeth. They allow wearers to have the freedom to chew and speak normally, something they would be barred from otherwise.
Implant-supported dentures are dentures that are held in place by dental implants. These implants are artificially rooted in the gum, giving these dentures more stability. The dental implants used in this procedure also help prevent bone loss in patients. This process may take more time to heal, but many like the security the implant-supported dentures provide.
Not all patients will require a full set of dentures, in some cases a partial denture suit your needs just fine. We have traditional metal-based partials that are designed for easy adjustability and comfort.
We also have flexible partials that have an acrylic base with metals and looks like a natural addition to your existing teeth. If you’d like more information on which dentures would be best for you, we would love to speak with you about your options today!

Dental implants are artificial roots that are screwed into the gums and bonded to the jawbone. They serve as a secure base for crowns and other appliances such as dentures. A piece called an abutment is used to bond the new root to the artificial teeth, also known as a crown, bridge, and more.

At Victus Dental, we are committed to your comfort and care, so we are proud to offer the Solea laser. This laser is used so that you don’t undergo numbing or anesthesia, quickening the process of receiving fillings and other soft tissue procedures. Using a small, concentrated laser, the Solea laser is able to reshape or remove tissue without pain or the need of prodding needles.
