Dentistry Solutions We Provide

Routine Care

Examinations – Your dental health will be monitored by our doctors and staff with thorough, comprehensive examinations. You will receive periodic x-rays as needed, visual examination, gum (periodontal) evaluation and an oral cancer screening. In addition, your jaw joints (TMJ), bite (occlusion) and any of your concerns will be checked.

 

Routine Cleanings – You’ll be treated with gentle care by our hygienists when receiving your periodic teeth cleanings. The health of your gums and teeth will be monitored and any problems addressed and treated. A healthy, beautiful smile will be yours with assistance from our staff.

Gum Treatments

Our gums (gingiva) are linked to our overall health. Studies have linked gum disease with heart problems and problems of the immune system.

 

Our team can evaluate and conservatively treat gingivitis and periodontal disease. Deep cleanings (root planings) coupled with antibiotic rinses and/or oral medications can treat the majority of the problems we see.

 

After resolving acute conditions, we will place you on a routine maintenance schedule to maintain and monitor your gingival health.

Restoring Teeth

You want your teeth to have long-lasting, high quality restorations. Whether we are placing fillings, crowns, veneers, inlays or onlays, only the best materials and techniques will be used. Whenever possible, composite (tooth-colored filling material) or porcelain are used to keep your smile beautiful.

 

Endodontics (root-canal therapy), implant restoration, denture restoration, and other types of dental restorations are tailored to your particular needs and desires.

 

If you are anxious about having dental work done, nitrous oxide (“laughing gas”) and headphones with music are offered to ease you into your treatment. We want your dental experience to be painless and easy.

Your Child's Dental Health


Child DentalExaminations
 – Your child’s dental well-being is carefully followed with periodic examinations. Their special needs are a major focus in our practice. Decay, malocclusion (bad bite) and harmful habits are some of the areas we watch out for.

 

Prophylaxis and Fluoride Treatment – Your child’s teeth will be cleaned thoroughly, followed by a professional fluoride treatment for most children. We will carefully instruct them on how to brush and floss properly. Your child will be positively rewarded for good behavior with stickers and a visit to our toybox!

Aesthetic / Cosmetic Procedures

The importance of esthetics in dentistry is undeniable. All of our dentists are up-to-date on the latest techniques in cosmetic dentistry.

 

Bleaching trays are a reasonable cost because we fabricate them in our office. All of our assistants are trained in the bleaching process and are able to assess your progress using a shade guide.

 

Your desires will be addressed by our doctors who are highly qualified in the placement of veneers, porcelain crowns, and tooth-colored restorations. When you visit us for your examination and treatment plan, we will present you with different options for restoring your teeth as well as our opinion on what would be the most aesthetic.

 

Only reputable and high-quality laboratories are chosen to fabricate your veneers and crowns to give the most aesthetic and durable dentistry possible . We want you to be happy and confident with your smile.

Implants & Replacing Teeth

When it comes to the question of how to replace missing teeth, you will be presented with many different options.

 

Dental implants are an excellent, conservative way to replace missing teeth, and our dentists are qualified to restore implants. Some of the other procedures that may be recommended are dental “bridges”, partial dentures, full dentures, and stayplates.

 

Your dental health is paramount, and we will do our best to explain all of these procedures to you so that you can make an educated choice on how to replace missing teeth.

Emergencies

Your comfort is important so we always make time in our schedule for dental emergencies. Whether you are a new patient to our office or a patient we’ve already had the pleasure of treating, we will do our best to address your emergency. We are very sympathetic to dental pain as well as cosmetic embarrassments.

 

An answering service is available 24 hours a day so that when we are closed you will still be able to reach a dental professional for help.

Surgical Procedures

Whether your child needs teeth removed for orthodontics or you need a suspicious oral lump removed, our doctors have extensive training and experience in various surgical procedures.
