At Accent Dental Center in Bothell, WA, our goal is to provide the highest quality general services to help you achieve and maintain optimal oral health. Our experienced and skilled dentists use the latest technology and techniques to deliver effective and efficient dental care in a warm, welcoming, and stress-free environment.
Cleanings & Exams
Regular dental cleanings and exams are essential for maintaining good oral health. During your appointment, our dental hygienist will use specialized tools to remove plaque and tartar from your teeth and gums. Our dentist will then perform a comprehensive exam, checking for any oral health issues and ensuring that your smile is in optimal condition. Regular cleanings and exams can help prevent dental problems and keep your smile healthy and bright.
If you have a cavity, our dentist will recommend a dental filling to restore the health and function of your tooth. We offer a wide range of filling options to meet the needs and preferences of every individual patient. These options include the following:
- Composite fillings: These are tooth-colored fillings made of a mixture of plastic and glass materials. Composite fillings are a popular choice because they blend in with the natural color of the teeth and are less noticeable than other types of fillings. They are also versatile and can be used to repair chipped, cracked, or decayed teeth.
In addition to our selection of fillings, porcelain and ceramic inlays and onlays are also available.
- Porcelain and ceramic inlays and onlays are custom-made restorations that are used to conservatively repair teeth with moderate decay or damage. Inlays are placed within the cusps of the tooth, while onlays extend over one or more cusps. Porcelain or ceramic materials are used to create a strong, durable, and natural-looking restoration that matches the color of your teeth. These restorations are also resistant to staining and can last for many years with proper care.
ExtractionsIn some cases, a tooth may need to be extracted due to severe decay, injury, or crowding. Our experienced dentist will provide gentle and comfortable tooth extractions to help you maintain good oral health. If needed, we can discuss replacement options, such as dental implants or bridges, to restore the function and appearance of your smile.
TMJ TherapyTMJ disorder can cause discomfort or pain in the jaw joint and surrounding muscles. Our dentist can diagnose and treat this condition, providing customized therapy to relieve your symptoms and restore the health and function of your jaw. We offer non-invasive treatments, including dental splints, night guards, and medications, to alleviate your pain and improve your quality of life. In rare cases, surgery may be required.
Sleep Apnea TreatmentSleep apnea is a serious sleep disorder that can affect your health and well-being. If you are experiencing symptoms of sleep apnea, such as loud snoring, gasping for air, and waking up frequently during the night, our dentist can help. We offer custom-made oral appliances that can help reposition your jaw and tongue, maintaining an open airway and allowing you to breathe freely throughout the night. With effective sleep apnea treatment, you can enjoy restful, rejuvenating sleep and improve your overall health.
Pediatric DentistryWe provide comprehensive dental care for children of all ages. Our experienced and compassionate dentist will help your child maintain good oral health, develop healthy habits, and achieve a bright and healthy smile. From routine cleanings and exams to preventative treatments, such as fluoride and sealants, we will help your child build a strong foundation for a lifetime of good oral health.
SealantsDental sealants are a simple and effective way to protect your teeth from decay. Our dentist will apply a thin layer of resin to the grooves and pits of your molars, creating a barrier that prevents plaque and food particles from getting trapped. Sealants can help prevent cavities and maintain the health of your teeth, especially in children and teenagers.
Mouth GuardsIf you play sports or engage in physical activity, it is important to protect your teeth from injury. We offer custom-made mouth guards that fit comfortably and securely, providing effective protection for your teeth during physical activity.
Wisdom Tooth Extractions
Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, have the potential of causing a variety of problems—including crowding, impaction, and infection. While there are some cases where these teeth emerge properly or do not emerge at all, in most cases, surgical intervention is needed to remove the impacted tooth/teeth.
At Accent Dental Center, our experienced dentist can identify the development of wisdom teeth and determine if surgical extraction is necessary. If so, we will refer patients out to the best maxillofacial or oral surgeon in the area. By identifying the need for this extraction as soon as possible, we can help prevent potential complications of impaction and ensure that your wisdom teeth do not affect your overall oral health.
- Surgical extraction is typically performed under the comfort of sedation, allowing patients to get through the surgery with relative ease.
