There are some therapies that we provide to help you with your oral health needs. Our goal is to give you a healthy and confident smile and maintain it for years to come. We want you to be comfortable during your care at our office.
We offer a few services that are all-encompassing of your oral health, and your family’s oral health. We understand the desire to stay on top of your oral health better than most. Keeping teeth clean is our business, but providing great value to our patients is also our business! Being able to understand your mouth and where it’s weaknesses are is an integral part of keeping your teeth healthy for your whole life.
If you would like to know exactly what affects your mouth and how a Teeth for a Lifetime Examination is the way to learn. We perform extensive testing on your mouth to give you some extremely valuable insights on how you should care for your mouth.
We are proud to offer dental services to adults and their children. With a positive and calming environment, we provide a place that your whole family will feel welcome.
Preventive DentistryPreventing dental issues from arising is our primary goal. When we can help a patient to understand how to prevent dental maladies from popping up, they will end up spending less money and have a healthier mouth.
Professional dental exams and cleanings are essential to keeping your mouth healthy in the long-term. During exams, we can catch oral health issues before they have a chance to take root. With dental cleanings, we can remove bacteria build-ups that you normally miss with your daily oral hygiene routine.
Dental sealants and fluoride are great ways to keep your teeth safe from decay-causing bacteria. Dental sealants aren’t just for kids – they are for adults too. Fluoride does a fabulous job of strengthening the enamel of your teeth, helping them to stand up to decay-causing bacteria.
When night time bruxism (teeth grinding) is a problem for you, we can craft nightguards for you to.
Restorative DentistryWe understand that accidents happen when it comes to your oral health, which is why we offer restorative dental options. Being able to restore damaged teeth to their normal, healthy state is invaluable.
Dental fillings are the most common way to restore teeth after they have suffered from decay. Using composite resin, we can fill cavities that occur, and no one will be able to tell the difference.
Dental bridges are a great way to replace missing teeth with a permanent dental prosthetic. We use the surrounding natural teeth or dental implants as supports for the bridge.
Crowns and bridges offer a way to protect and replace teeth. Crowns are often used to cap root canals and protect teeth that can no longer function properly in the mouth. Bridges are a permanent tooth replacement option that can restore your ability to eat and speak as you did before tooth loss.
When a tooth experiences significant damage, sometimes the only viable option is to remove it with tooth extraction. Tooth extractions are usually a simple procedure that we can perform in our office.
When you experience significant nerves or would just like to have a more pleasant dental procedure, ask us about our oral conscious sedation option. We will give you a sedative that will help you to relax during your procedure, but you will remain awake and conscious.
When we perform a more complex procedure, like a surgical procedure, we sometimes use IV sedation to help give our patients a more calming experience.
Cosmetic dentistry is one of the fastest growing dental fields in the US. Cosmetic dentistry focuses on fixing aesthetic issues with your mouth and teeth.
Dental bonding is a fast and efficient way to make permanent changes to your teeth. We can patch visible cracks and chips in your teeth as well as reshape your teeth using dental bonding. Dental bonding uses composite resin to accomplish these feats, which is the same material used for filling most dental fillings.
Teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dental option in the US today. Professional teeth whitening gives people the fast results that they expect with way less hassle than the over-the-counter teeth whitening options.
Porcelain veneers are the most powerful cosmetic dental procedure that we offer. Using porcelain veneers, we can alter the shape, size, look, feel, and position of your teeth. If your smile doesn’t look how you would like it to, change it with the help of porcelain veneers!
Because we want our patients to be able to rely on us for all their dental needs, we have a few different specialty providers that offer services in our office. This allows our patients the convenience of a one-stop-shop for all their dental needs!
PeriodonticsWhen the health of the gums are a concern, periodontics is the practice that will help.
While gum disease is mostly painless and hard to detect, it’s also leads to one of the biggest dangers for healthy teeth – periodontal disease. We can help to detect signs of periodontal disease and reverse it’s course, leaving your teeth happy and healthy.
When periodontal disease has taken hold of your mouth, scaling and root planing can help get it under control.
If you have suffered from soft tissue loss – we can help. Soft tissue grafts can be made to give you back the oral health and aesthetic you deserve.
Instead of more invasive soft tissue grafting techniques, we can give receding gumlines a more natural and healthy state with the Chao Pinhole surgical technique.
EndodonticsA root canal can save a tooth that has experienced significant decay from having to be removed entirely.
If a tooth that has had a root canal performed on it is still suffering from some decay, we can sometimes save it from removal with root canal retreatment.
When you aren’t getting great sleep, let us know! Many times we can help to correct sleep apnea and snoring issues with a cost-effective and long-lasting dental splint.
If your jaw aches or is a source of pain, we can help. TMJ issues are tricky, but we have been successful in many treatment cases of TMJ.
SurgicalWhen oral surgery is required, we are the professionals that you want helping you through the process!
When disease strikes, it’s important to detect it and treat it quickly with the proper oral pathology techniques.
If you are interested in having a dental implant placed in your upper jaw, there is a chance that you will require a sinus lift to accomplish the adequate amount of bone necessary to support the implants. A sinus lift keeps the sinus cavity safe while simultaneously providing new, healthy bone to support a dental implant.
If you have experienced significant tooth loss over the course of many years, you have probably lost some bone in the arch of your jaw. When patients are looking to replace missing teeth with dental implants, sometimes it’s necessary to perform a ridge augmentation to give the patient a natural and healthy arch.
The final step in periodontal disease management, osseous surgery can help to fix issues that are scaling, and root planing have failed to address.
