Initial Oral Examination
Your first visit at our office is very important in establishing your oral health baseline.
The Preventive Program
Both natural teeth and teeth with restorations survive best in an oral environment that is clean and where proper oral hygiene is maintained.
Traditional dental restoratives, or fillings, include gold, amalgam, porcelain, and composite.
Crowns & Caps
The terms dental crowns and caps are synonymous. Crowns are typically used to restore a tooth's function and appearance following a restorative procedure such as a root canal.
Bridges & Dentures
A bridge may be used to replace missing teeth, help maintain the shape of your face, and alleviate stress on your bite.
Pediatric Dental Care
We take pride in creating and maintaining beautiful and healthy smiles for our younger patients in an environment that is lighthearted and fun. We focus on establishing oral health habits that last a lifetime, with education and prevention as our primary tools.
Our in-office state-of-the-art bleaching system will make your teeth whiter and brighter. You may also use our take home bleaching system to achieve a brighter and whiter smile in a matter of days. We also offer a lifetime whitening program called StayBrite.
Gaps, chips, stains, or misshapen teeth can now be treated with wonderful results and very conservatively using porcelain veneers.
Sedation dentistry is oral conscious sedation. Unlike general anesthesia, which is generally administered in a hospital setting, sedation dentistry is a safe and effective technique which we can provide in our dental office.
Invisalign ® is a form of orthodontic treatment that works to correct many different types of malocclusions through the use of a series of clear plastic trays called aligners.
When tooth removal is necessary, we can perform simple and surgical extractions using local anesthesia.
If a tooth is extracted or missing for some other reason, it is now possible to replace it using dental implants.
If you grind your teeth while you sleep, a bite guard will reduce symptoms of TMJ problems. We custom make mouth guards in both soft and hard materials.
Root canal therapy is needed when the nerve of a tooth is affected by decay or infection. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need of dental implants or bridges.
Periodontal treatment methods depend upon the type and severity of the disease. Periodontal disease progresses as the sulcus (pocket or space) between the tooth and gums gets filled with bacteria, plaque and tartar, causing irritation to the surrounding tissues.
