Exams

Your dental examination is a very important part of your overall dental health program as well as your overall health. We believe in a total-health approach to dentistry because we understand that your health in one area affects your health in other areas. We look beyond the apparent symptoms and look for the real solution that will address the cause of the problem. This unique approach means you will be able to maintain optimum overall health. Oral Health and Whole-Body Health The link between your oral health and the rest of your body's health is undeniable. The mouth is the main gateway into your body.

Dental Cleanings

A dental cleaning is a professional cleaning you receive from a dentist or dental hygienist. Most dental cleanings take only 25 to 30 minutes. Cleanings should be performed every six months to prevent excessive plaque buildup. Plaque left untreated can lead to unhealthy gums and tooth decay.

Night Guards

Teeth clenching and grinding can damage teeth and be harmful to one's long-term oral health. Night guards are recommended to protect patients who clench or grind their teeth during the night. These custom-designed appliances are made of flexible plastic and molded to comfortably fit the shape of your teeth.

Periodontal (Gum) Treatment

It's estimated that more than half of U.S. adults have gingivitis. Gingivitis, in some cases, can lead to periodontitis (gum disease) and host of other health problems.

Gum disease can cause bleeding, swelling, bad breath, pain, receding gums and tooth loss. But it doesn't always stop there. You oral health is the beginning point for your whole body's health and wellness. It is imperative that we stop problems before they even start!

Sleep Solutions

Snoring can be far more serious than it seems. Obstructive sleep apnea is caused by the tongue or jaw or some other oral obstruction blocking the airway during sleep. This results in the patient stopping breathing periodically through the night and can have severe impact on overall health over time. Sleep apnea is often successfully treated with oral appliance therapy or a CPAP machine. However, some severe cases may require surgery to widen the airway, reduce the size of the tongue or remove the oral obstruction. Surgery is generally viewed as a last resort and performed only when other treatments haven't worked.

Oral Hygiene

Maintaining good oral hygiene is one of the most important things a patient can do for their teeth and gums. It's ultimately up to the patient in between visits, but the dentist is here to help and offer tips. Healthy teeth enable patients to have a smile that is both attractive and functional, and good oral health is vitally important to overall wellbeing.

Daily preventive care in between regular dental visits can greatly decrease the risk of developing tooth decay, gum disease and other dental problems.

Dental Cleanings

A dental cleaning is a professional cleaning you receive from a dentist or dental hygienist. Most dental cleanings take only 25 to 30 minutes. Cleanings should be performed every six months to prevent excessive plaque buildup. Plaque left untreated can lead to unhealthy gums and tooth decay. A routine dental cleaning should include scaling, root planing and polishing.

Sealants

Sealants are a common preventive treatment in dentistry. Some teeth have fine grooves or pits that accumulate plaque, not because the person doesn't brush, but because the grooves are too narrow to allow even one bristle into them. When plaque accumulates, it can lead to cavities and other types of tooth decay. To apply sealants, a plastic material is brushed onto the tooth, filling these narrow grooves and preventing the cavity-causing buildup. Sealants make healthy teeth possible.

Oral Cancer Screening

We have a genuine concern for your overall health and well-being. It's because of this that we invest in state-of-the-art oral cancer screening technology to ensure your health for life.

Tooth Colored Fillings

A filling is a way to restore a tooth decayed tooth back to its normal shape and function. If you have a tooth that requires a filling, the dentist will first remove the decayed tooth material, then clean the affected area and fill the cleaned-out cavity with a filling material. This filling will help prevent further decay by closing off any cracks or spaces where bacteria might enter. There are a variety of filling materials available including gold, silver, plastic and porcelain. We will work with you to determine which material is best for you, depending on the extent of repair, the location of the filling and the cost. Each of the filling materials is briefly explained below:

Dental Implants

A dental implant is an ideal tooth restoration for people who are missing one or more teeth for reasons like injury or periodontal disease. To begin the implant process, a metal post is surgically positioned into the jaw. This post will act as a permanent "root" for the implanted tooth. Once it is in place, the surrounding bone and tissue needs time to heal.

Crowns

Crowns are used to restore and enhance teeth that are damaged, or to replace missing teeth. A crown, also called a cap, is used to entirely cover a damaged tooth. A crown not only strengthens the tooth, but it can also dramatically improve the tooth's appearance, shape and alignment.

Bridges

A bridge is an ideal method to fill the space created by missing teeth. A bridge is one or more artificial teeth that are cemented into place using the real teeth on either side for support--hence the name. Bridges are a perfect option for filling the space created by a missing tooth. A bridge replaces the missing tooth both functionally and cosmetically. Bridge work is as much an art as it is an exact science. Bridge materials include gold alloys, porcelain bonded to metal alloy, or all-ceramic material made to match your natural tooth color. The choice of material depends on requirements for strength, wear, and/or esthetics.

Onlays

If you have a cavity or decayed tooth, it can be restored back to its normal shape and function with an onlay. An onlay is a more extensive reconstruction that covers one or more cusps of a tooth. Onlays are best used in situations where a cusp is compromised or fractured.

Root Canals

Root canal treatment, also referred to as root canal therapy or endodontic therapy, is used to save an infected or damaged tooth and avoid having to remove it. A root canal becomes necessary when a neglected cavity reaches all the way to the pulp at the center of the tooth, causing the pulp to become infected. Regular cleanings and checkups detect and prevent problems early on.

Extractions

Good oral hygiene is a must. The loss of a single tooth can have major impact on overall oral health and appearance. Although dentists will use every measure to prevent tooth loss, there are still some occasions when a tooth needs to be extracted. A tooth may need to be extracted if the following occurs:

Periodontal Surgery

Gum disease can cause bleeding, swelling, bad breath, pain, receding gums and tooth loss. But it doesn't always stop there. You oral health is the beginning point for your whole body's health and wellness. It is imperative that we stop problems before they even start!

Dentures

Sometimes, despite a person's best efforts, they reach a point where they no longer have any teeth. Full dentures remain the most popular option for replacing their teeth. In the past, a denture was held in place by the suction that the denture would develop between itself and the gums it rested on. Now, with the advent of dental implants, we can provide a superior option to just full dentures. When a full denture has two or more dental implants that it attaches to, the fit of that denture is drastically improved. This can mean the difference between a soft or liquid diet and a normal diet of solid Restoratives. If you have a full denture and would like to improve its fit, ask us for an implant consultation. With proper x rays and measurements of your mouth, we can determine if you're a good candidate for implants.

Veneers

Veneers are a cosmetic dental procedure in which a thin layer of porcelain or composite material is placed over the outside of the tooth. They are used to improve esthetics or help with tooth damage. Veneers are usually only performed on the front part of the teeth that are visible when talking or smiling. The procedure can be direct or indirect.

Orthodontics

Orthodontistry is the art of using special appliances to straighten and align the teeth and bite. Braces are the most common orthodontic treatment. In this method, arch wires are threaded through brackets that are bonded to the surface of the teeth.The arch wires act as a track, and guide each tooth to its proper position. There are several types of orthodontic braces available, including the more traditional metal braces, ceramic "tooth colored" braces, as well as clear plastic braces. Invisalign® and Six Month Smiles® are popular option for teeth alignment. We can treat both children and adult patients.

Clear Correct®

A BETTER WAY TO STRAIGHTEN YOUR SMILE.

Clear Correct® is an attractive alternative to traditional metal braces. It is a series of clear, custom-fit removable mouth trays that apply a controlled amount of force to your teeth to slowly straighten them. The system provides the same beautiful results as traditional braces, but they are virtually invisible. Because Clear Correct® trays are removable, they can be taken out while eating, drinking, brushing and flossing.

6 Month Braces

Six Month Smiles is a system similar to traditional braces that corrects crowded, rotated or misaligned teeth in 4-9 months. The system includes brackets, arch wires and elastic ties but with clear or white ties and tooth colored wires. The brackets and ties are practically invisible at a normal speaking distance and are highly effective in correcting esthetic issues. This system is not useful for correcting bite issues or skeletal problems but does a fantastic job aligning teeth for maximum comfort and ease of flossing and brushing. Friends and family will barely notice you're wearing braces!

Whitening

Teeth whitening is a popular procedure to make your teeth whiter and brighter, and therefore more attractive. Bleaching can be used to whiten stained and discolored teeth, or simply to enhance a dull smile. Either way, teeth whitening is a safe and relatively painless procedure for most patients. Whitening comes in strips, trays, or in-office procedures. We offer a wide variety of options for you at our practice.

Botox / Restalyne

Can dentists offer BOTOX? The answer is a definite yes! Dentists already have extensive knowledge in facial muscles and tissues. Additionally, dentists in any speciality are often particularly skilled in delivering virtually painless injections.

BOTOX Cosmetic is an FDA-approved prescription medicine that is injected into various points in facial muscles to smooth wrinkles and improve appearance. BOTOX works by blocking signals from nerves to the muscles so that the muscles can no longer contract. This relaxes and softens wrinkles. Imagine getting rid of frown lines or crow's feet during your dental visit!

Digital X-rays

Digital radiography uses an estimated 40-90 percent less radiation than conventional film x-rays. Digital x-rays use a digital image capture device in place of traditional film, sending an image immediately to a computer. The result is a highly-detailed image of the mouth, and its contrast and resolution can be enhanced to more easily diagnose dental problems and determine the very best treatment for each case.

This means more safety and better accuracy for you.

4-D Cone Beam

We are proud to offer same-day crowns and restorations using the E4D Dentist™ system. With E4D same-day crowns, you don't need to suffer through traditional impressions or temporaries. Rather, you can be in and out of the office with a permanent, natural-looking, metal-free restoration in a single visit! We simply scan your teeth using a laser that creates an image we can send to an in-house milling unit. This milling unit then creates a porcelain crown that blends with your surrounding teeth in just minutes. The dentist then adjusts, characterizes with color, or polishes the restoration to a final luster. Experience a faster, more patient-friendly restoration service!

Laser Therapy

Laser therapy is a new dental advancement where laser technology is used to treat a number of dental treatments, including biopsies, periodontal treatment and pain therapy. The lasers we use at our practice are an alternative to the common, hand-held scalpel, drills, and other tools. These lasers direct an invisible energy beam onto problem areas and allow us to effectively treat decayed teeth, enamel, and gums.

Paperless Charting

Paperless charting means more efficiency and more accuracy. An office that has "gone digital" records x-rays and charting with the aid of the computer and keeps all patients' dental records electronically. Additionally, it cuts back on paper use. With traditional paper charting, information can be lost in translation from doctor to hygienist to assistant. Even handwriting differences and coding make the charts look different. The computer eliminates this problem by standardizing charting methods, making it easy to understand dental charts, view up-to-date information and keep records accurately. When needed, this method also allows dental offices to more easily share information with other healthcare providers.

E-Claims

Many offices utilize electronic claims processing. This means that rather than being sent through the mail, a dental claim is sent electronically to an insurance company with the click of a button. We can submit information more efficiently and with fewer errors. This benefits patients because the turn-around time on claims is faster, and fewer claims are returned or denied.

We are happy to submit your dental claims to your insurance company on your behalf. Please let us know if you have any questions about the e-claim process.

Comforting Environment

Our patients have often told us how much they love our friendly and caring team and the great environment we have here! When you walk through our doors, you'll not only be greeted by warm smiles but complimentary coffee and drinks, a koi fish pond and an 8 foot waterfall to enjoy.

Oral Conscious Sedation

Excellent option for patients who suffer from dental anxiety.

Oral sedation is an excellent option for patients who suffer from dental anxiety. It is simply taken in pill or liquid form and ingested at a set time before treatment. The drug produces a calming effect to make the visit to our office a much less stressful experience. Oral sedation is simple, safe and has very few side effects.

Shot-free Procedures
