Professional dental cleaning is needed to remove plaque and tartar which can remain on your teeth even after properly brushing and flossing.
Plaque that remains turns into tartar and if not removed effectively by a dental cleaning is the main cause of tooth decay and gum disease.
Depending on your unique situation, we may recommend a cleaning every 3, 4, or 6 months. We will clean your teeth to remove any plaque or tartar and then polish them to remove some staining on teeth.
X-rays will be taken at least yearly and the doctor will recommend any treatment if needed. They hygienist will also perform an oral cancer screening at each visit.
Dental Fillings are necessary when decay has been detected via x-ray or visual examination. The doctor will remove the decay and restore the affected area with either a composite filling material (white) or an amalgam filling material (silver).
Crowns are a tooth shaped covering that is placed over your natural tooth to strengthen and protect your tooth.
It seals out plaque and bacteria and prevents further decay.
After determination that a crown is right for you, you and the doctor will discuss the best crown for your situation, taking into concern function, aesthetics, and budget concerns. Crowns consist of at least two appointments.
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that support your teeth. It is a major cause of tooth loss in adults. Because gum disease is usually painless, you may not know you have it.
At regular check-up, yearly the hygienist or dentist will measure the depth of the shallow v-shaped crevice between your tooth and gums to identify whether you have gum disease.
Periodontal diseases attack just below the gum line where they can cause the attachment of tooth and supporting tissues to break down.
Gingivitis is the beginning stage of gum disease; the gums become red, swollen and bleeds easily.

MEET YOUR DOCTORS
Dr. Lyman earned his bachelor’s degree from Arizona State University (but don’t hold that against him…he enjoys Wildcat sports too). After he graduated from ASU, Summa Cum Laude, he was accepted into the Arizona School of Dentistry and Oral Health at A.T. Still University where he earned his Certificate of Public Health with a dental emphasis and became a Doctor of Dental Medicine.
Dr. Lyman is always interested in continued education, locally and nationally. He is committed to knowing the best and most current techniques, treatments and technology available, not only because this is the industry he loves, but because he knows his patients expect unsurpassed care and he expects that of himself too.
After graduating from dental school Dr. Lyman took an internship in Galveston, TX to gain more experience learning the full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery. From there he practiced general dentistry in Texas with more than 50% of his patients being children, which he REALLY enjoyed.
Before attending college, Dr. Lyman spent 2 years in Mississippi as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints but he had lived in Arizona most of his life. When he and his wife (a native Arizonan) learned a dental practice was available in Tucson, Arizona they jumped at the opportunity to move their family back home. In their free time, you can usually find the Lyman’s (including their 4 children) exploring local attractions, attending sporting or cultural events, playing at a park, hiking, swimming or riding bikes.
Over the years, Dr. Lyman has volunteered his time serving in local and foreign communities at “Give Kids a Smile”, “AZ Mission of Mercy”, “Day for Special Smiles” and with “Latin World Ministries”. If you can’t tell, Dr. Lyman loves people and dentistry!
We are very excited for you to meet Dr. Lyman, we know you are going to love him!
Called yesterday about a broken tooth, got an appt this morning, and I’m fixed up and out of there less than an hour later. That’s pretty incredible in today’s healthcare world, and I am very grateful to the staff and doctor at this office.
