Fillings (Tooth colored fillings and bonding)

Teeth with decay and after restored with fillings.

We offer tooth colored fillings known as composite or dental bonding. Whether removing decay due to disease or getting a more cosmetic look, Dr. Govani loves helping patients get their dream  smile. Once the tooth is prepared a dental filling is bonded into place to restore the tooth to what once was or to improve the cosmetic outcome of the mouth.

If teeth are more prone to fracture such as because of grinding or habits, or fillings being larger we offer crown options for more protection.

Crown and Bridge

When teeth are largely undermined with decay or have cracks, wear or have fractured, crowns can offer more protection to the tooth. The tooth is prepared to make room for the crown to cover the tooth. Govani Dental of Oshkosh offers a wide range of crown and bridge options with a high cosmetic outcome.

Dental Crown

A single crown can be done when only a single tooth needs full overage protection.

Teeth Whitening

Sometimes regular brushing and flossing aren’t enough to keep your teeth as white as you’d like. Govani Dental can help whiten your teeth safely and effectively, while offering guidance on how you can keep them that way.

Not sure what to expect from teeth whitening? A typical teeth whitening treatment with our team involves two office visits.

In your first visit, we’ll make sure your teeth are good candidates for a whitening regimen. If they are, we’ll take diagnostic impressions to create custom trays that fit your teeth like a retainer. These trays will be custom made to fit your teeth to prevent sensitivity and burning. The trays hold the whitening product for your whitening treatments. Govani Dental offers an in-house chair-side whitening procedure that provides patients with an ultra-bright whitening option.

Custom whitening products we choose can prevent problems such as burning, teeth translucency, and sensitivity. Click here for more information on teeth whitening.

Dental Implants

Govani Dental offers patients with damaged or missing teeth a way to get their smile back. Dental implants are designed to give patients fixed replacement teeth that look and feel like the teeth they’re replacing.

Here is what you can expect from dental implant treatment

  1. Dr. Govani and our trusted specialists will first determine if you are a good candidate for implants.
  2. After evaluation, we will secure the titanium implant root into place.
  3. Once the implant area has a chance to heal and integrate into the bone, we fabricate a custom-made tooth abutment and a crown on top of the implant to be functional.

Dr. Govani enjoys placing and restoring dental implants to improve both function and aesthetics, helping patients feel more confident in their smile and in the ability to eat normally. Click here for more information on dental implants.

Removable Prosthodontics (Dentures and Partials)

Govani Dental also helps patients who have, or need, removable tooth replacement options. We provide both complete and partial dentures.

Complete dentures

Can be used when all of a patient’s natural teeth are missing or as a temporary solution before fixed treatment options.

Oral Surgery

Govani Dental of Oshkosh offers a wide range of oral surgery services at our Oshkosh office and through our referrals to trusted specialists. Our in-office oral surgery services include: bone grafting, surgical extractions and non-surgical extractions. Dr. Govani is extremely comfortable extracting both permanent and primary teeth.

Bruxism (Clenching & Grinding)

We want to educate our patients and help aid them with bruxing concerns, learn more here. Dr. Govani and her trusted team will evaluate the temporomandibular joints, or TMJ. Temporomandibular disorders (TMD) can often cause discomfort and myofacial pain. Myofacial pain happens when muscles in the head, neck or body contract and tense, often caused by stress or clenching or grinding teeth. It can be characterized by face and jaw pain. Dr. Govani works with patients to find the most conservative solutions.

A few options we may recommend are

  • A custom fit occlusal guard to help prevent bruxing or grinding
  • Soft food
  • Avoiding gum and hard candies
  • Jaw, head and neck stretches
  • Pain relief medications
  • Massage therapy
  • Referral to a jaw and pain management specialist

We are committed to ensuring all patients are comfortable and will work to find the solution that is best for you.

Root Canal Therapy

Also known as endodontic procedures, root canal therapy deals with diseases of the tooth root, dental pulp and surrounding tissue. If the pulp inside a tooth becomes infected, you may have discomfort and are at risk for losing the tooth. Govani Dental uses the latest technology to provide our patients with the most comfortable and easiest diagnosis and evaluation. We refer patients to our trusted specialists for an optimal root canal experience. Once the root canal is complete, we will finalize the tooth with a restoration or a crown to protect the tooth from fracture. This will allow optimal protection and prevent leakage of the treated tooth. Govani Dental can fix and restore your tooth to health before it’s too late.

Periodontal Procedures

Maintaining and preventing periodontal disease is very important. Gingivitis (inflammation of the gum tissue) can be the precursor to future health problems like periodontitis and bone loss. These problems can affect your overall health.

At Govani Dental, we put a key focus on periodontal health. Your teeth can’t truly be healthy without healthy gum tissue to support the teeth. For patients with advanced periodontal issues, we offer procedures to help get you back on track to oral health. We offer non-surgical procedures like scaling and root planing in addition to periodontal maintenance to keep your tissues stabilized.
