About Our Dental Office

We understand that visiting the dentist may not make your top ten list of desirable events, but we want our patients to feel comfortable and relaxed in our Cormier Dental & Associates office. If you want individualized, quality dental care, you’ve come to the right place. Our team will spend time getting to know your preferences, listening to your concerns, and developing a detailed plan to meet your smile goals.

Modern Dental Technology

Our Dentists and our staff are recognized for providing state-of-the-art dentistry, which includes DIAGNOdent, digital x-rays, intraoral cameras, and one-visit ceramic crowns. We have invested in tools and technology that will enhance our patients’ experiences and protect their oral health long-term. Our entire team expands their skill sets with continuing education coursework.

As one of the few practices in the area to utilize a CEREC CAD/CAM instrument, our doctors can restore damaged teeth in one appointment. The ceramic, tooth-colored inlay, onlay, or crown is manufactured in the office while the patient waits, eliminating the need for temporary restorations and multiple appointments. The finished product is extremely precise, attractive, and durable. In addition, the procedure allows us to practice more conservative therapy because of the modern bonding techniques, which keep healthy tooth structure intact.

Our goal is to surpass our patient's expectations. We strive to provide a clean and relaxed environment where patients can receive the highest quality of care.

We believe in providing our patients the information they need in order to make educated treatment choices.

Prevention & Hygiene

A preventive program is a cooperative effort by the patient, dentist, and dental staff to preserve the natural oral health and supporting structures. We do this by preventing the onset, progress, and recurrence of dental diseases and conditions.

Preventing dental disease starts at home with a balanced diet and good oral hygiene. It continues into the dental practice with your dentist and your dental hygienist promoting, maintain and restoring your oral health.

Prevention also includes regular dental exams, cleanings, and x-rays. Sealants and fluoride can also be a great preventive treatment plan that helps protect the teeth.

Prevention helps avoid serious and costly dental problems later and is the key to having a confident, healthy and awesome smile!

Proper Brushing

The key to oral hygiene is brushing and flossing. Even though bi-annual professional dental cleanings remove plaque, tartar, and debris, excellent homecare methods are equally valuable. Proper brushing and flossing can enhance the health of the mouth, make the smile brighter, and prevent serious diseases.

Why are brushing and flossing so important?

Prevention of tooth decay - Tooth decay is one of the leading causes of tooth loss, and its treatment often requires complex dental procedures. Tooth decay occurs when the acids found in plaque erode the natural enamel found on the teeth. This phenomenon can easily be prevented by using proper home hygiene methods.

Prevention of periodontal disease - Periodontal disease is a serious, progressive condition which can cause tooth loss, gum recession, and jawbone recession. Periodontal disease is caused by the toxins found in plaque and can lead to serious health problems in other parts of the body. Removing the plaque and calculus (tartar) from the surface of your tooth using a toothbrush and from the interdental areas using dental floss, is an excellent way to ward off periodontal problems.

Prevention of halitosis - Bad breath or halitosis (as it is called) is usually caused by old food particles on or between the teeth. These food particles can be removed with regular brushing and flossing, leaving the mouth healthier, and breath smelling fresher.

Teeth Staining Prevention - Yellowing of staining, of your teeth can be caused by a wide variety of factors such as coffee, tea and smoking. The more often these staining agents are removed from your teeth using brushing and flossing techniques, the less likely it is that the stains will become permanent.

How to Properly Brush Your Teeth -Your teeth should be brushed at least two times per day, ideally in the morning and before bed. The perfect toothbrush is small in size with soft, rounded-end bristles, and is no more than three months old. The head of the brush needs to be small enough to access all areas of the mouth, and the bristles should be soft enough so as not to cause undue damage to the gum tissue. The American Dental Association (ADA) has given electric toothbrushes their seal of approval, stating that those with rotating or oscillating heads are more effective than other toothbrushes.

Proper Brushing - Place the toothbrush at a 45-degree angle where the gums and teeth meet. Use small circular motions to gently brush the gumline and teeth. Do not scrub or apply too much pressure to the teeth, as this can damage the gums and tooth enamel. Brush every surface of every tooth, cheek-side, tongue-side, and chewing surfaces. Place special emphasis on the surfaces of the back teeth. Use back and forth strokes to brush the chewing surfaces. Brush the tongue to remove fungi, food, and debris.

Flossing - Flossing is a great way to remove plaque from the interdental regions (between the teeth). Flossing is an especially important tool for preventing periodontal disease and limiting the depth of the gum pockets. The interdental regions are difficult to reach with a toothbrush and should be cleansed with dental floss on a daily basis.

Proper Flossing - Cut a piece of floss to around 18 inches long. Wrap one end of the floss around the middle finger of the left hand and the other end around the middle finger of the right hand until the hands are 2-3 inches apart. Work the floss gently between the teeth toward the gum line. Curve the floss in a U-shape around each individual tooth and carefully slide it beneath the gum line. Carefully move the floss up and down several times to remove interdental plaque and debris. Do not pop the floss in and out between the teeth as this will inflame and cut the gums.

Fluoride - is very effective in preventing cavities and tooth decay and in preventing plaque from building up and hardening on your tooth’s surface. A fluoride treatment in your dentist’s office takes just a few minutes. After the treatment, patients may be asked not to rinse, eat, or drink for at least 30 minutes in order to allow the teeth to absorb the fluoride. Depending on your oral health or your dentist recommendation, you may be asked to have a fluoride treatment every three, six, or 12 months.

Sealants - They are highly effective in preventing decay on the biting surfaces of your chewing teeth, dental sealants are a simple procedure in which a tooth-colored acrylic "coating" is painted onto the surface of the tooth. This effectively "seals" the deep grooves, acting as a barrier and protecting enamel from plaque and acids.

Sealants protect the depressions and grooves of your teeth from food particles and plaque that brushing and flossing can't reach.

Easy to apply, sealants take only a few minutes to seal each tooth. Sealants hold up well under the force of normal chewing and can last several years before a reapplication is needed.

Children and adults can benefit from sealants in the fight against tooth decay.

Crowns - Crowns also known as "caps" are porcelain or porcelain fused to metal restorations used primarily to repair broken, decayed or fractured teeth. If a filling can't replace enough of the tooth or make the tooth strong enough a crown may be recommended. A bridge fills a space where a tooth once was and is generally three or more crowns fused together.

Dental Bridges - All of your teeth play an important role in speaking, chewing and in maintaining proper alignment of other teeth. Tooth loss doesn’t necessarily have to occur as you age, but if you do you’re your teeth they must be replaced to maintain proper function of your mouth. Fortunately, there are options for correcting tooth loss.

Dental Bridge Options - A bridge — a device used to replace your missing teeth — attaches artificial teeth to adjacent natural teeth, called abutment teeth. Bridges are either permanently attached (fixed bridges), or they can be removable.

Fixed bridges are applied by either placing crowns on the abutment teeth or by bonding the artificial teeth directly to the abutment teeth. Removable bridges are attached to your teeth with metal clasps or by precision attachments.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth and also provide a fixed solution to having removable partial or complete dentures. Implants provide excellent support and stability for these dental appliances.

Dental implants are artificial roots and teeth (usually titanium) that are placed into the upper or lower jaw bone by a dentist or dental specialist. The teeth attached to implants are very natural looking and often enhance or restore a patient’s smile!

Dental implants are strong and durable and will last many years.

Reasons for dental implants:

Replace one or more missing teeth without affecting adjacent teeth.
Resolve joint pain or bite problems caused by teeth shifting into missing tooth space.
Restore a patient’s confident smile.
Restore chewing, speech, and digestion.
Restore or enhance facial tissues.
Support a bridge or denture, making it more secure and comfortable.

What does getting dental implants involve?

The process of getting implants requires 3 visits over a spans of 3-4 months.

At the first appointment, x-rays and impressions (molds) are taken of the jaw and teeth to determine bone, gum tissue, and spacing available for an implant. While the area is numb, the implant will be placed into the bone and allowed to heal and integrate itself for 3-4 months.

At the second appointment, a "post" which is called the abutment is placed that will hold the tooth in place.

The third appointment is only two weeks later, and that is when the final crown is delivered. You now have a fully functional free-standing tooth where it was previously missing.

You will receive care instructions when your treatment is completed. Good oral hygiene and eating habits, alongside regular dental visits, will aid in the life of your new implant.

Veneers

Veneers are an ideal for improving your smile. Porcelain veneers are custom made ultrathin pieces of tooth colored materials. They can change the color, shape, size and length of teeth when bonded to the front of the tooth.

Veneers are routinely used to repair:
Teeth that are discolored -- either because of root canal treatment; stains from medication, excessive fluoride or other causes
Resin fillings that have discolored the tooth
Teeth chipped teeth that are worn broken
Teeth that are cracked or broken
Teeth that are misaligned, uneven, or irregularly shaped
Teeth with gaps between them/have spaces between them

When it comes to strength and esthetics, veneers are unsurpassed by other restorative options.

Dentures

Dentures are natural-looking replacement teeth that are removable.

Full dentures are given to patients when all the natural teeth have been removed.

Partial dentures are attached to a metal frame that is connected to your natural teeth and are used to fill in where permanent teeth have been removed. Just like our natural teeth, the dentures need to be properly cared for. Use a gentle cleanser to brush your denture. You need to always keep the dentures moist when they’re not in use and be sure to keep your tongue and gums clean as well.

Digital X-Rays

Using the most advanced dental technology is just as important as staying up-to-date on the latest treatment techniques. Our practice is dedicated to providing you with the safest and most convenient treatment options available, we utilize advanced digital X-ray technology in our office.

Digital X-rays provide several advanced imaging options designed to save time, provide clearer dental photos, and expose patients to less radiation than traditional X-ray technology.

You'll find many more advanced tools in our office, all designed to make your care with our practice that much smoother. Our dedication to technology helps us diagnose your problem areas with exceptional accuracy, treat you precisely, and help you feel more relaxed every step of the way.

Our prices are competitive, and we try to be as punctual as possible so that none of your valuable time is wasted. Patients received skilled attention and valuable experience in a familiar setting.

Emergency Dental Care

New Dental Patients

Emergencies, by their very nature, are never convenient. That’s why Dr. Cormier and his Beverly dental team offer emergency dental care. With emergency dental care, we can help you reclaim good oral health and achieve peace of mind.

Are you experiencing a dental emergency? Call our Beverly office today. And to learn more about how you should respond to some of the most common dental emergencies, keep reading.

Knocked Out Tooth

A patient who has just lost a tooth should take the following steps. First, call Dr. Cormier’s Beverly dental office to alert us to your emergency. Then, if possible, try putting the tooth back into the socket it came from. If you’re unable to do that, store it in a bag of milk until we’re able to see you. Reattachment may be possible, but only if we can see you immediately.

Broken Tooth

For patients who have a cracked or broken tooth, the first step (after calling us) is to rinse the tooth with warm water. To prevent or reduce swelling, apply a cold compress to the area and come to our office as soon as you can.

Severe Toothache

Toothaches have many causes, and not all of them serious. If you’re experiencing discomfort, try flossing around it first, before you call us. It’s possible a piece of debris may be caught around the tooth, causing it to ache. If your pain persists, call Dr. Cormier’s office for an appointment. We offer a range of treatment options to help.

Cut or Bitten Tongue/Lip

The most obvious problem a patient who’s cut or bitten her tongue will face is bleeding. Apply a cold compress to the injury to stop bleeding and prevent swelling. If the bleeding doesn’t stop, visit your local emergency room, as stitches may be needed. Call us if one or more teeth have sustained an injury.

Possibly Broken Jaw

A patient with an injured jaw should go to the emergency room immediately. If any teeth have been lost or damaged, call our Beverly dental office for emergency dental care.


Questions and Answers

A. Yes. We can provide dental care for the entire family, bringing together children’s dentistry, general family dentistry, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry together in our Beverly practice. Please feel free to contact us now at (978) 927-0324.

Q. My gums bleed after I brush. Is this something to be concerned about?

A. Bleeding gums should definitely be investigated for underlying problems. When gums bleed, the cause could be that you’re brushing too hard or other simply answered with a checkup, but it could also be early-stage gum disease, called gingivitis. We can set you up with an appointment for proper toothbrush pressure and safe, effective daily oral care. If your gums show signs of gum disease, we may recommend a deep hygiene treatment to stop the disease and return your gums to good health. Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss for American adults, and it has been linked to many overall health conditions, including stroke, heart attack, and respiratory problems. Untreated, gum disease can escalate to create significant damage to your health, so please consider calling for an appointment. We want to help you maintain teeth and gum health for life!
