Teeth Cleanings & Dental Check-ups with Dr. Bursich
Hygienist Amanda explains needed cleaning steps to a patient.
We know it is important to you to keep your teeth healthy and to save your natural teeth for as long as possible. No matter what condition your teeth are in, right now is the best time to begin taking care of them. We can help, and it's easier than you think. Even if you have been afraid to visit the dentist, please come and see us. Dr. Bursich will give you a very careful, free evaluation, and help you to take care of and preserve your teeth, one step at a time.
At our office we complete a comprehensive exam when you schedule a check-up. This includes full mouth x-rays and a full clinical exam including an oral exam, a head/neck exam, a complete periodontal exam, and a cancer screening.
We have an excellent dental hygienist who is very experienced, and knows how to clean your teeth gently, and very thoroughly.
Good oral hygiene is important to prevent a variety of dental and medical problems. Recent research has shown that the bacteria present in gum disease are also found in the plaques clogging arteries in people with heart disease.
Therefore, a good professional cleaning is essential not only for the health of your teeth, but also for your general well-being.
X-rays at our office are fast, thorough and very low risk. At every phase of treatment in which x-rays are needed, we use the latest in digital technology to give you rapid, accurate diagnostic results with much less radiation than conventional x-rays.
Because they are computerized, the digital x-rays utilize sensors rather than film. Sensors require much less radiation to yield an image. This means that our patients experience only a very low level of radiation when they are x-rayed.
The sensors are also smaller and more comfortable, making the process of taking X-rays easier, more efficient and far more comfortable, even for gaggers and children.
We care about our patients and make them feel comfortable
Children love Dr. Bursich, and he is very gentle and patient with them..

We do necessary gum treatment to handle mild to intermediate gum disease, including scaling and root planing.With follow-up and home-care, this considerably reduces the chance of further progression of the gum disease. Read more about gum treatment here.
Fillings are a fast and painless procedure with us. You will hardly feel your shot, if at all, and we always use high-quality composite (white) fillings.

"The difference between Dr. Bursich’s office and others is the extra steps he and his staff take in prevention and care, not just treating existing problems. He explains things I could be doing for my dental care and why I should be doing them as well as things his office could do. He and his staff give me the impression that they truly care about my dental care and make sure I understand everything that he recommends for my treatment plan. My dental care throughout my life used to be brushing my teeth a couple of times a day, but since becoming a patient of Dr. Bursich I am doing so much more and I am seeing real improvements in my dental progress. He and his staff are very professional, courteous, and knowledgeable."
