Your regular checkups with Dr. Amy Gavin and our friendly team will be far from routine. We don’t focus on your teeth, but rather, we focus on the correlation of your dental health to your overall health. Studies have indicated oral diseases, such as periodontal (gum) disease, significantly increase your chance of serious health risks, including heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and much more.
During your comprehensive exams, we thoroughly review your health history and discuss ways how to improve both your oral and overall health. A comprehensive exam at Olentangy Modern Dental also includes:
- One-on-one time with Dr. Amy Gavin to discuss your goals
- Digital x-rays
- Periodontal charting
- Customized treatment plan
After your exam, you’ll receive a gentle (but thorough) cleaning from our wonderful hygienists who will get rid of tartar and plaque to give your smile a polished look.
We love seeing kiddos! Positive and healthy habits start at a young age and we’ll make going to the dentist fun and educational for your little ones. This includes getting to their level and demonstrating the importance of brushing and flossing teeth every day. Make the most of your and your family’s time by scheduling all of them at once. Call us for more details! 740-200-5100
Gums are the foundation to phenomenal oral health. If they are not treated properly, you’re putting your overall health and teeth at risk. Early signs of gum disease include:
- Red, puffy gums
- Bleeding gums
If you or your hygienist are noticing these early signs, Dr. Gavin may recommend periodontal therapy (scaling & root planing). This is considered a deep cleaning, where one of our hygienists will get rid of plaque and tartar below the gumline to help your gums heal and be free from periodontal disease.
Saving your natural smile is our top priority, and root canal therapy (endodontics) is the last resort to save a natural tooth when it’s severely infected. At Olentangy Modern Dental, we are able to perform root canals to save your natural smile. There is the stigma of root canals being a painful experience, but that is not the case. We’ll do everything possible to make sure this procedure is as painless as possible.
Veneers are a popular cosmetic dentistry option for those looking for a dramatic change with their smile. They can hide almost any smile flaw, including:
- Cracked or broken teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Stained teeth
Placing porcelain veneers requires the perfect blend of art and science. Dr. Amy Gavin is your cosmetic dentist for the Lewis Center and Olentangy areas. She’ll work closely with you to ensure your new smile is a work of art – made only for you.
You can finally say “goodbye” to metal braces! With Invisalign, it’s possible to gain a straight, beautiful smile without putting your life on hold. Invisalign is the modern twist to orthodontics by straightening your teeth using clear, virtually invisible aligners. Why is this option better?
- Aligners are removable: These clear, plastic aligners are customized to your smile and are not attached to your teeth. This allows you to remove the aligners whenever you need to eat or brush your teeth.
- Eat your favorite foods and brush with ease: Since the aligners are removable, you can eat your favorite foods without hesitation. Also, you can brush and floss normally without brackets and metal wires getting in the way.
- Virtually invisible: Invisalign aligners are clear, so people will hardly know you’re receiving orthodontic treatment!
- Beautiful results: Before you know it, you’ll have a beautiful, straight smile.
Your true smile is out there and Dr. Gavin can help you find it with smile design! Your smile is the gateway to your personality, and it’s our goal to ensure you have a smile that merges with your personality.
At your smile consultation, Dr. Gavin will chat with you on what you’re looking for in your new smile. She’ll consider many of your characteristics to craft a unique smile, including:
- Eye color
- Skin color
- Facial characteristics
- And so much more
Investing in a brand new smile can be a scary decision, which is why we have a smile design simulator to preview your new smile before starting treatment. In turn, you’ll know what to expect with the end results, keeping your smile for years to come.
Does your smile need an extra boost? Teeth whitening is an affordable and conservative method to brighten your smile. At Olentangy Modern Dental, our professional whitening methods are designed to brighten every contour of your smile, creating consistent, beautiful results.
Are you missing teeth? Dealing with slipping and sliding dentures? Dental implants can help! Implants mimic the look and function of the natural tooth, consisting of three parts: a post, abutment, and crown.
Normally, you would have to go see a specialist to place the titanium post within your jawbone, but Dr. Gavin is able to place and restore implants right in the office, allowing you to see the same familiar face from start to finish. Under the care of our Lewis Center implant dentist, you can:
- Enjoy your favorite foods without being in pain
- Speak clearly without mumbling or slurring your words
- Stop jawbone deterioration to bring back facial support
- Have stabilized dentures
- A healthy smile for life with the proper hygiene routines
Crowns: When a tooth is severely decayed or cracked, a dental crown is needed to restore the tooth’s function, stability, and beauty. As an artist, Dr. Gavin will ensure your crown blends seamlessly with your smile while having the durability of a natural tooth to last for a long time.
Bridges: Bridges are an alternative option to replace missing teeth if you’re not a candidate for dental implants. A bridge is an artificial tooth held in place by crowns, which are bonded to the adjacent teeth on each side of the gap. These artificial teeth will look and feel like natural teeth, restoring beauty and function.
