Although the staff and dentist are friendly , I would not recommend this dentist.This dentist work does not last. Both my daugther and husband had several fillings done, and less than two years later they are falling out. The Dentist also broke a tool in one of my teeth, and did not pay for the specialist who I had to go to , to get the tool out of my mouth.

I have had only good experiences at the Esteem dental office on Crabb River Rd. The doctors are patient and have always explained everything and answered all my questions. I have had only good results with regard to any procedures I have had done.

I think Dr/ Cook is very thorough and she takes her time to make sure everything is done correctly, I have been to other dentists who did not do that, which is why I switched to her.

Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
