The goal for every adult treated in this practice is to preserve and maintain the patient's oral health to the extent that they keep their teeth for the rest of their lives.  This is accomplished by first restoring complete dental health to the patient, followed by the prevention of future disease through proper dental hygiene.

Our goal for your children is even more ambitious.  Thanks to fluoridation of water and modern dental treatments such as pit and fissure sealants, the goal for all children is the lifetime prevention of any decay.  It is the realization and accomplishment of these goals that make this practice such a rewarding experience for both Dr. Flory and his patients.

Accomplishing the Goals

Today's dental equipment, materials and restorative techniques enable dentists to restore your teeth closer to their original condition than was ever possible before. Some of these and advances include: stronger and more durable filling materials, high speed fiber optic drills, more effective dental anesthetics, modern digital x-ray equipment, filling materials heartened by visible light techniques and non-abrasive cleaning of your teeth with a prophy-jet and ultrasonic scalers.

The prophy-jet is a dental machine which produces a spray mixture of calcium powder and water.  This spray cleans areas previously inaccessible to cleaning, such as around crowded teeth or teeth with braces.

The advances in the plastic or composite materials for filling teeth are especially exciting.  Because these materials adhere or bond to a tooth, less natural healthy tooth structure needs to be removed to prepare the tooth for its restoration.  These materials allow a tooth to be restored not only to good function but also back to its natural cosmetic shape and color.  Your teeth can also be changed to a desired new appearance.

All dental services in this office are performed exclusively by Dr. Flory.  This includes all dental exams and cleanings which are of the utmost importance in maintaining your oral health.  At times, your particular dental needs may require the services of a dental specialist (i.e. orthodontist).  The practice has developed an excellent dental referral network which continues your desire for the highest type of dental health care.
