Services we offer include:

 
 

Cleaning & Prevention
Prevention is the best tool we have in fighting cavities and decay. As your oral health care provider, we take our job of prevention education very seriously. Prevention goes beyond brushing. An in-office dental exam and cleaning should be done every 6 months. This is recommended by the American Dental Association. We provide a thorough cleaning that you could never get on your own and our exam can detect many health related problems that can arise. Oral health is tied directly to your overall health. No matter the condition of your teeth righ now we will work with you until you have that satisfaction that comes from a well cared for mouth

Tooth Colored Fillings
Modern fillings that match your natural teeth. Composite fillings are great for replacing the old traditional silver fillings. The ceramic and resin advanced material is bonded to the tooth and very wear resistant. If small-to-moderate size decay is present on a tooth these are very successful. In our practice they replace the silver/mercury amalgoms when new fillings are needed. Back to top.

Crowns
Sometimes called a cap, they are used to preserve and restore badly decayed or fractured teeth. Crowns can also be used cosmetically to enhance the appearance of teeth. The advantage of crowns are that they are very strong, due to the fact that they are created in a laboratory. This protects and strengthens the remaining tooth structure. They are highly durable and are an excellent solution for badly decayed or fractured teeth or to protect the remaining structure of a tooth. Back to top.

Bridges
A fixed non- removable appliance. One, or more, missing teeth are replaced by being anchored to porcelain crowns. This long lasting appliance is as comfortable as the natural teeth being replaced. Back to top.

Dental Implants
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is surgically anchored into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge in place. The benefit of using implants is that they don't rely on neighboring teeth for support and they are permanent and stable. Implants are a good solution to tooth loss because they look and feel like natural teeth. When a bridge isn't practical, implants provide support for a crown or removeable appliance (partial or full denture). Back to top.

Root Canal Therapy
Each tooth should have a healthy dental pulp, which is the soft tissue inside the tooth containing blood vessels and nerves. When there is an ache or throbbing in a tooth, or it hurts to bite on, these are the signs of an unhealthy pulp. The good news is, because of our methods of treating unhealthy pulps, we can eliminate the discomfort and save the remaining tooth. We perform this treatment comfortably when it is needed. Back to top.

Dentures & Partials
When multiple teeth are missing, our carefully constructed removable appliances are comfortable and attractiveBack to top.

Bonding
All of our restorations are bonded to strengthen your teeth. We use the best dental adhesives to eliminate sensitivity as teeth are restored. Back to top.

Whitening
If you’ve never had your teeth whitened before get ready to be excited! Teeth whitening will usually dramatically transform those dull colored or stained teeth you may have into a brighter whiter more beautiful smile. Back to top.

Cosmetic Dentistry
Cosmetic dentistry is one of the most cost-effective ways to improve your appearance. A beautiful, bright, healthy smile can increase self confidence and overall life satisfaction. You'll never leave home without a smile. Many normal dental treatments can be cosmetic, such as tooth-colored fillings that are basically invisible compared to silver fillings and tooth-colored crowns (caps) which are used instead of gold or silver crowns. Here we will show you some of the best treatments available to improve your smile and the way you feel about yourself overall because your smile is the first impression....so make it your best! Back to top.

Prompt Emergency Care
We offer dependable methods to end your pain, including root canal therapy if needed. Back to top.

Gum Therapy
Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is the most common disease here in America. The good news is, unlike most other diseases, gum disease is easily prevented and treated. It is an infection of the gums and the bone that surrounds the teeth. Untreated gum disease is a major cause of adult tooth loss. Recent science has proven that the infection from gum disease is more serious than originally believed. Bacteria can travel to other areas of the body and may lead to other health issues.
When the gums are healthy, they have a healthy pink color; the gum line hugs the teeth tightly and they do not bleed. The treatment for gum disease is usually a deep cleaning of the teeth and gums. This will help the gums heal. Most times after treatment, your mouth can be maintained by brushing,  flossing (or other methods of cleaning between teeth), and regular check-ups. Back to top.
