Preventive Dentistry

This includes our regular dental hygiene visits, sealants, mouthguards & patient/parent education. We place a high emphasis on sealants, which are effective in preventing tooth decay on the biting surfaces of chewing teeth. This plastic coating, which is clear or tooth-colored, is applied to deep pits & grooves. This seals them in the areas where decay is most likely to begin. At less than half the cost of conventional fillings – without anesthetics or drilling – sealants are one of the most important preventive services we have.

Sealants & Fluoride Treatments

Tooth decay, otherwise known as cavities, can be a significant problem for children as well as adults. There are numerous factors that lead to tooth decay & there are many ways to prevent it. With the use of sealants, we can cover the deep grooves in your back teeth & extend their life while helping to prevent cavities.

Sedation Dentistry

Wake up to a more healthy & beautiful smile with amazingly comfortable sedation dentistry. We care for patients who have these concerns:

  • I’m afraid of needles & shots.
  • I’ve had bad experiences in the past.
  • I have not been to the dentist in a long time.
  • I always gag when having dental work done.
  • I just can’t seem to get numb.
  • All my teeth are too far gone.

NiteWhite® Teeth Whitening

Now you can have significantly whiter teeth in a matter of a few days using advanced take-home teeth whitening techniques. Both comfortable & affordable, our teeth whitening procedure involves wearing a specially crafted tray for a few hours in order to achieve a surprising difference in your smile! NiteWhite® works while you sleep to whiten yellow teeth & virtually eliminate tobacco, tea & coffee stains.

Crowns & Bridges

If you suffer from decayed or missing teeth, restorative dentistry can help. A crown can be placed on a damaged tooth, making it ready for normal function. If you are completely missing some teeth, a bridge provides a secure replacement that looks & feels completely natural. Don’t put up with discomfort any longer. Call us today to reclaim your smile!

Invisalign® Clear Orthdontics

Invisible aligners are the revolutionary way to help you obtain even, straight teeth without noticeable or painful metal braces. Virtually undetectable, invisible aligners are made of strong, clear plastic that gradually guide your teeth into perfect alignment. Unlike metal braces, they have no wires or brackets. Tooth impressions are made, from which customized aligners are created to slide directly over your teeth. Aligners are typically worn full-time (except when eating or drinking) for 12 to 48 months – no longer than you would wear traditional metal braces. We proudly feature Invisalign® brand aligners.

Dental & Restorative Implants

Dental implants are essentially permanent, attached teeth that replace partials, bridges or dentures. A titanium implant is permanently attached to your bone & a prosthetic tooth (crown) is attached to the implant. Implants are preferred to bridges because they can improve your bite without damaging neighboring teeth (like a bridge). Treatment can be finished in three to five visits over a span of about four to 12 months.

Dentures

If you’ve lost teeth from decay, injury or periodontal (gum) disease, dentures are the solution. Whether partial or full dentures, they’re essential not only to your aesthetics, but also to your oral health. In addition to allowing you to eat as if you had never lost your teeth, dentures protect against facial sagging that would otherwise occur & give you a more aged appearance. Dentures will also promote your natural speech. Denture maintenance, combined with a regular regimen of proper brushing, can guarantee you a comfortable, healthy mouth for the rest of your life. Please call us today to discuss the numerous available options in more detail.

TMD (Jaw Pain) Therapy

Commonly misdiagnosed or overlooked, a subtle misalignment in the temporomandibular joint can be a common, significant source of head & neck pain. If you have frequent & severe head or neck pain, you owe it to yourself to investigate our doctor’s life-changing approach to correcting these TMD problems.

Low-Radiation Digital X-Rays

We offer in-office digital x-rays for your convenience. Digital x-rays are computer-generated images. These images require up to 90% less radiation than with conventional film-type x-rays. Instead of using the traditional silver oxide x-ray film that must be developed & then fixed in caustic & environmentally damaging solutions, this new system takes pictures via a small electronic sensor & instantaneously transmits a picture of the tooth onto the video monitor in the treatment room, allowing us to see your teeth & the surrounding structures immediately. Feel free to contact us for more details or to make an appointment!

Mercury-Free Dentistry

We understand your concerns regarding the use of mercury fillings. Accordingly, at our office we have elected to offer our patients the option of using new advanced fillings made of tooth-colored materials. They contain no metals or mercury & are an alternative to traditional silver fillings.

State-of-the-Art, Antiseptic Procedures

Our sterilization procedures meet the Centers for Disease Control guidelines. We heat-sterilize all handpieces & instruments after each use. We only use ADA-approved disinfectants, disposable gloves, masks, eye protection & barrier covers at all times. Your family's safety is our top priority.
