Bridges

Bridges A non-removable bridge can restore your teeth to normal function by replacing missing teeth. It will improve the entire health of your mouth by keeping the surrounding teeth in position and can also help maintain the structure of your face and jaw.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic Dentistry   Cosmetic dentistry encompasses reshaping your teeth, veneers or bonding, natural-looking tooth-colored fillings and bleaching. Veneers are porcelain shells that are fabricated in a laboratory and fit over the fronts of your teeth. Bleaching, or teeth whitening, is usually done at home but can also be done in the office if faster results […]

Crowns

Crowns Crowns can strengthen and protect the remaining tooth structure and improve the appearance of your teeth. A “cap,” “jacket” or “crown” will restore a broken, heavily filled or cracked tooth to an ideal size and shape. This may also be recommended after root canal therapy has been completed, as the tooth is more apt […]

Hygiene

Dental Hygiene An integral part of maintaining your teeth for life is the removal of plaque and tartar on a regular basis. The frequency of your visits is based upon your individual needs and oral health. During each visit we will update your medical history, perform an oral cancer screening exam, check your teeth for […]

Implants

Dental Implants A remarkable procedure, implants can replace any or all of your teeth. The implant becomes integrated with the bone and acts like an artificial root, which ultimately supports a new tooth. The advantages of implants for patients with dentures are denture stability, increased patient comfort and confidence. Dental implants bond with healthy bone […]

Oral Surgery

Oral Surgery The goal of modern dentistry is to prevent tooth loss. When a tooth cannot be saved, extraction (removal) of the tooth may be the only course of treatment. A panorex x-ray allows us to see a complete picture of the alignment of your jaw, the positioning of your teeth and whether there is […]

Invisalign

For patients who have crowded or crooked teeth, spaces between their teeth or misaligned teeth and jaws, orthodontic therapy can help reduce the risk of tooth decay, gum disease and trauma due to protruding teeth. The American Association of Orthodontics recommends that children have an evaluation by seven years of age. We also provide Invisalign […]

Periodontal Disease

Periodontal Disease While seldom painful and frequently free of any obvious signs or symptoms, periodontal disease can progress, undetected, to the point where supporting bone is destroyed. Early treatment and prevention is essential. While periodontal disease is caused by plaque, a number of other factors, including poorly fitting bridges, badly aligned teeth and defective fillings, […]

Root Canal Therapy

Root Canal Therapy If a tooth’s pulp (nerve and blood supply) becomes infected or inflamed, root canal treatment may be the only way to save the tooth or relieve severe pain, short of removing the tooth. Root canal treatment consists of removing the nerve that lies within the root of the tooth. With modern techniques, […]

Sealants

Sealants Highly effective in preventing decay on the biting surfaces of your chewing teeth, sealants are a simple procedure in which a tooth-colored acrylic “coating” is painted onto the surface of the tooth. This effectively “seals” the deep grooves where decay is most likely to start.

Tooth Decay and Repair

Tooth Decay and Repair   Often a tooth will not start bothering you until there is significant loss of tooth structure. With the help of routine cleanings and x-rays, problems can be detected earlier-before you experience a toothache.

Sedation

Sedation Dentistry Before Your Sedation Visit Do NOT eat 8 hours prior to appointment. You may drink clear liquids (i.e. water, apple juice) up to 2 hours prior to appointment. In the event you have consumed an excessive amount of liquids and need to use the restroom after the sedation has begun, you will be […]
