DR. JAY RITTER, DDS
He was fantastic!! I had a comprehensive checkup with X-rays and a cleaning done. The cleaning was a bit painful (I'm pretty sensitive), but when I said something, he put numbing gel on my gums and it went smoothly after that. The doc did not try to get me to get any more work done. He actually suggested it were best not to do added stuff, such as refill a crown that did not need refilling, due to the possibility of it potentially cracking. Dr Ritter is fantastic! I'll definitely be back in six months for my next checkup and cleaning. Dr. Ritter is really chill. Made sure everything was comfortable and checked multiple times on my comfort level and at the end if I had any questions. Cool young guy Great doctor, mase me feel very comfortable, the ony thing I didnt like was the rooms were nit private, you can see the other patients in the next room, where they can hear your conversations and see the doctor working ob you... Other then that he's great... We definitely will be returning! Staff is friendly and polite and Dr. Ritter was great. Great dentist, very friendly staff Very friendly and professional staff.

Inlays and Onlays

Inlays and onlays are often referred to as partial crowns. They use the existing tooth as a base and fit the inlay or onlay onto the tooth. This is done to strengthen the tooth, restore its shape, and prevent further damage. An inlay is done when there is no damage to the cusps of the tooth and the inlay can be placed right on the tooth. An inlay is used when the damage is a little more extensive.

The decayed area of the tooth is first removed during the procedure. A mold of the tooth is then taken and sent to a dental lab. They create a restoration made from porcelain, gold, or a composite resin. The restoration takes about 2-3 weeks to make, so a temporary inlay or onlay will be placed on the tooth for that time. During your next visit the inlay or onlay will be placed into your mouth and set with cement. Your tooth will look natural and you or anyone else won’t be able to tell the difference.
