Teeth and Mouth Photo Gallery

This dental photo gallery shows photos of an amalgam filling, tooth decay, a dental sealant, a full set of dentures, calculus, dental implants, precision attachments, a diastema, braces, crown preps, a porcelain crown, a cavity, sutures, bruxism, access openings, composite (tooth colored) fillings, tooth staining, and a porcelain dental bridge.

Braces - Before and After Photos

These orthodontic photos, courtesy of Doctors Thomas Field and Ron Wilson, show actual patients at the beginning of their treatment before starting braces and at the the end of their treatment after their braces were removed.

Dental Implant Photo Gallery

If you or someone you know has ever considered getting dental implants, this gallery will be very helpful to you. These photos show the different stages and dental materials used for dental implants as well as what they look like during the healing phases and the final result.

Photo Gallery of a Child's Dental Appointment

When my son had his routine dental check-up appointment, I decided to take pictures so that other parents could show their children exactly what to expect when they go to have their teeth cleaned. This way, children don't have to be afraid because they already know what's going to happen. I have had so many parents email me to tell me how much this has helped their children conquer their fear of the dentist. Some parents have even printed the pictures and made them into a little book for their child to look at before going to the dentist for the first time.

Dental X-Ray / Radiograph Photo Gallery

Many people get tired of having X-rays taken at the dentist office and wonder if it isn't just another way for the dentist to make more money. Dental X-rays show many things that a dentist can't see just by looking into your mouth, such as decay in between your teeth, root canal filling, eruption of wisdom teeth, placement of primary teeth, oral cancer and much more. These photos will show you how dental X-rays are taken as well as some examples of dental X-rays.

Dental Instrument Photo Gallery

Going to the dentist can be scary, especially when they start grabbing foreign objects and sticking them into your mouth. I started out as a dental assistant over 20 years ago, and I can still remember the most exciting part to me was learning about the instruments. I had been a regular at the dentist office as a patient and suddenly everything clicked, "Oh...that's what it's used for." After that, I wasn't afraid anymore, because I knew what they were using and why. Being afraid of the dentist is a lot like being afraid of the unknown. These photos will show you various dental instruments as well as what they are used for.

Dental Instrument Photo Gallery II

These dental instrument photos are a follow-up to the previous ones. You will see more dental instruments such as the different types of suction tips and even different types of extraction instruments. If you ever have to have a tooth removed, you will know that that the dentist isn't using a hammer, which believe it or not, many people think.
