Dental Implants at Elizabeth Dental Care

If you have lost or missing teeth, you may wish to consider a dental implant from Elizabeth Dental Care.

Elizabeth Dental Care is a full service office specializing in dental implants. Whether your missing tooth is the result of periodontitis, tooth decay or an injury, Elizabeth Dental Care can help restore your smile with a beautiful new dental implant that looks and functions just like a real tooth.

Significantly stronger than bridges or dentures, a dental implant offers a single and permanent solution to a lost tooth. The implant is integrated into your jaw with a small titanium screw, and over the course of several months, naturally bonds with your mouth. This procedure is relatively simple and is effective in almost all cases; so there’s no need to put off restoring that great smile.

As with all of our dental services, you’ll be treated with the nurturing care and professionalism that embodies Elizabeth Dental Care’s practice. We’ll make sure that you’re kept comfortable and informed throughout the implant process, and will always be available to address any questions or concerns.

Clear Correct (Like Invisalign) at Elizabeth Dental Care

Instead of wires or bands that attach to the outside of your teeth – where everyone in the world can see them – Clear Correct is a clear, custom-made removable dental brace, used by dentists and orthodontists to straighten patients’ teeth.

The aligners are removable, making for easier eating, brushing and flossing. They move your teeth into place gradually, only in a much shorter length of time than traditional braces.

In the past, getting braces has meant years of painful adjustments and struggling with self-image. But since 1999, Invisalign has literally changed the face of orthodontics for over half a million satisfied patients.

Clear Correct treatment utilizes cutting edge technology to prepare a series of clear plastic molds of your teeth during each stage of alignment. Every two weeks, we will check on your progress and give you the next mold, or “aligner,” to keep your treatment on track.

The aligners are removable, making for easier eating, brushing and flossing. They move your teeth into place gradually, but in a much shorter length of time than normal braces. You’ll achieve results in six months to a year.

Clear Correct can improve the smiles of anyone with crossbites, overbites, underbites, crowded teeth or teeth that are spaced too far apart.

Veneers at Elizabeth Dental Care

One of the most popular and effective developments in cosmetic dentistry would be veneers. Veneers are thin, custom-made casings that cover the front side of your teeth. Veneers are used to correct uneven teeth, worn enamel, discoloration, chipped teeth and irregular spacing. They can last over 20 years.

After a thorough examination of your teeth – which may include X-rays and taking impressions of your teeth – Dr. Barragan will remove a thin layer of enamel from your teeth. Next an impression of your teeth will be sent off to the laboratory to create the veneer. While the mold is being created, your dentist may provide you with temporary veneers. Finally, the veneers’ size and color are given one last adjustment before they are cemented to your tooth on your second visit.

Veneers can give your teeth a more natural, aesthetically pleasing appearance. They are stain resistant and soft on gums. In some cases, veneers can serve a restorative purpose and can protect a damaged tooth from further harm.

We encourage you to discuss any decisions about treatment or care with your dentist.

Emergency Dental Care at Elizabeth Dental Care

  • Your six-year-old loves the Tooth Fairy and has decided to take matters into her own hands.
  • You bite down on your pencil and break your tooth, the night before a big presentation at work.
  • You just had to have the chewy candy at that midnight movie festival, and now your filling is gone.

Emergency dental care is a service we hope you’ll never need; but if you do, it can be a lifesaver.

There are many reasons to seek emergency dental care. Sometimes, the pain of existing problems – such as abscesses, swollen gums or infected mouth cuts – can be too much to bear. Immediate relief from prescription-strength analgesics can become a necessity until the patient can be treated during office hours.

Any kind of tooth damage — broken dentures, lost crowns or fillings, or a broken tooth — should be taken care of immediately; but doesn’t always happen at the most convenient time.

If you are in need of emergency dental care, please do not hesitate to contact us. We’ll have you smiling again in no time!

Crowns at Elizabeth Dental Care

Depending on the type of treatment you have received for your dental problem, it might be necessary to:

  • Have your tooth restored to its original size and shape
  • Supply additional physical support for the treated tooth
  • Get a complete “makeover” on the affected tooth

For cases like these, a crown is the most logical option.

While inlays and outlays cover the chewing surface of the tooth and fillings fill in the empty interior space of the tooth, crowns completely cover every visible part of the tooth – which is why they are sometimes referred to as “caps.” A part of your tooth remains but is essentially “rebuilt” to resemble the tooth at its exterior best.

While porcelain crowns certainly can improve the look of a tooth or multiple teeth, the procedure is recommended only in conjunction with prior repair of the tooth – not simply for cosmetic purposes.

Dental X-Rays at Elizabeth Dental Care

Dental x-rays work by creating an image of the denser parts of your body, such as teeth and bone, revealing dental problems that may not be apparent to the naked eye. At Elizabeth Dental Care, we use this technology to detect and treat various disorders – such as cavities, infections, misalignment and decay – in their early stages.


Taking a dental x-ray takes just a few minutes and doesn’t hurt. Minimal amounts of radiation are emitted in the process, as x-ray machines are strictly regulated by the FDA. If you need a dental x-ray and are pregnant, let your dentist know and he or she will cover you with a lead apron to shield radiation.

We use several types of x-rays in diagnosing dental problems, including:

  • Bitewing X-rays: Check for decay between teeth and jaw misalignment
  • Periapical X-rays: Used to find problems in the jaw
  • Occlusal X-rays: Used to examine the roof or floor of the mouth
  • Panoramic X-rays: Give a broad view of the mouth and dental structures

Depending on your age and level of dental health, the FDA recommends getting a dental x-ray between every 6 months and 3 years.

Root Canal at Elizabeth Dental Care

In the past, teeth with diseased nerves have been removed from the mouth. However, through a root canal, most of the diseased tooth can be salvaged. In most cases, the root canal procedure is a simple treatment that involves little to no patient discomfort.

Within the walls of each tooth, a strand of dental pulp – the substance that supplies the tooth with nerves, nutrients, connective tissue and blood vessels – laces downward into the root. If the dental pulp becomes diseased, the pulp dies, cutting off the nutrients to the tooth. If the diseased pulp is left in the tooth, the tooth will become infected, forcing it to need extraction.

Root canals allow the dentist to remove the pulp, clean the canal and seal the tooth, effectively protecting and saving the tooth. After an opening is created through the crown of the tooth into the dental pulp chamber, the pulp is removed. The canal is cleaned out, and the pulp chamber is permanently filled. The dentist will proceed by putting in a temporary filling.  Afterwards, the temporary filling will be replaced with a permanent filling or a crown, depending on the location of the tooth within the mouth.

Mini Implants at Elizabeth Dental Care

All dental implants are not the same. Depending on how big the implant itself is, it will be classified as either a standard dental implant or a mini dental implant – which is sometimes also called a denture implant.  A mini implant is smaller and thinner than a regular dental implant.  In addition, mini tooth implants are also considerably more affordable.

Placement of the mini dental implants is accomplished quickly and easily in a process performed in our office. The procedure generally takes around 1 to 2 hours. Using a precise, controlled, minimally invasive surgical technique, the implants are placed into the jawbone. The heads of the implants protrude from the gum tissue, providing a strong, solid foundation for securing the dentures.  It is a one-step procedure that takes less time and heals faster than standard implants.

Our staff has a vast array of experience in mini dental implants.  To discuss whether you’re a candidate for mini implants, or to set your appointment, call us today!

Zoom Whitening at Elizabeth Dental Care

Imagine making your teeth eight shades whiter – in 45 minutes – while you watch TV or listen to music!

With the Zoom! Whitening treatment, you can.

Zoom! is an in-office procedure that is a safe, effective bleaching treatment broken into three identical 15-minute segments, performed all in one session:

  • Zoom! whitening gel is applied to your teeth.
  • A slightly heated lamp is shone into your mouth for 15 minutes, during which time you can relax and watch television or listen to music.
  • The light activates the ingredients in the gel, penetrating the teeth and bleaching away the discoloration – without harming your teeth’s structure.
  • After 15 minutes, rinse!

That’s all there is to it. Zoom! takes much less time than at-home kits and toothpastes, and makes your teeth an average of 2-4 shades lighter. You’ll see immediate results that last longer.
