| Sedation Dentistry: |
One of the greatest benefits of sedation dentistry is that it allows people to relax during their dental visits. With Dr. Peabody's sedation dentistry, you will feel like you have slept through your dental visit, remembering little to nothing about your visit!
The benefits of nitrous oxide are many and the risks are few. The gas is administered with a comfortable mask placed over the nose and the patient is instructed to breathe in through the nose and out through their mouth. Nitrous Oxide allows for a lighter form of sedation, keeping you comfortable throughout your appointment, without any groggy side affects when your appointment with Dr. Peabody is complete.
Dr Peabodys cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the appearance of your teeth, mouth and leaving you with an elegant smile!
The most conservative, inexpensive, immediate, safe, and fun ways to brighten your smile is by bleaching your teeth. After making sure you are a good candidate for tooth bleaching, we will help you brighten your smile with this time-tested proven method of whitening teeth. When you call to schedule your appointment with us, be sure to ask about our exciting White Teeth for Life program, which we exclusively offer to our patients.
Dr. Peabody D.D.S uses state of the art non-invasive treatments to treat your gums and have your mouth feeling fresh once again.
We use digital imaging for advanced, accurate, thorough diagnosis, case monitoring, so patients can see their own teeth to fully understand their own dental condition.
Dr. Peabody D.D.S uses state of the art x-ray imaging digitally, which not only produces the highest quality of images for accurate diagnosis, but it enables LOW DOSE radiation to achieve these necessary images. The digital technology enables us to send images electronically to specialists we work with on cases and to patient's insurance companies to expedite their insurance re-imbursements. We do this to save each of our patients the time and the headache that they face elsewhere.
Crown and bridge treatment:
After receiving our top of the line crown and bridge treatment to restore your broken down teeth to full strength, you will leave with the confidence to smile and show off your beautiful teeth once again.
Non-metal, natural enamel-like crowns:
Dr. Peabody DDS uses state of art materials and labs to produce beautifully esthetic natural looking crowns that are as strong as metal crowns (gold) yet without the metal. This means they not only look fantastic, but you will never have to worry about metal sensitivity.
Porcelain onlays and porcelain inlays:
Strong, esthetic, natural looking restoration for restoring broken down teeth more conservatively than with conventional, full-coverage crowns that leaves you with a beautiful smile.
We use white fillings, called composite, to restore your teeth to their natural beautiful color, rather than use dental amalgam (silver fillings). These esthetic composite fillings are durable, and restore the beautiful appearance your teeth had before they were subject to tooth decay.
Replacement of such teeth in a esthetic zone (upper front) with dental implants, requires extensive knowledge, skill, and experience, to transform your smile into a pleasant, natural looking one. Recreation of gum architecture, smile line, and lip posture with natural looking implant teeth is definitely a work of art after we are completed. We specialize in providing our patients with dental implants and making there implants look like they were your actual teeth!
At our office we treat, but more importantly, we help to prevent TMJ which is better known as Jaw Problems.
We also offer Endodontic Treatment, better known as Root Canal therapy. Dr. Peabody has over 20 years of experience providing root canal therapy. In most cases, if your treatment needs involve endodontic treatment, Dr. Peabody will perform this for you - saving you the inconvenience of having to see a different practitioner for this service. Sometimes, however, a tooth may have a special condition which requires treatment by a root canal specialist. If Dr. Peabody finds this to be the case with you, he has a team of top-notch specialists in Santa Cruz who will take excellent care of that aspect of your treatment.
We also have Preventive services for oral hygiene and fluoride treatment so that you are never caught with bad breath. We specialize in keeping your breath fresh at all times.
