New Patient Appointments
We are always accepting new patients. If this is your first time to the dentist in years, you're in pain, are a recent move in or just looking for a new dental home... we are happy to accommodate you! We offer free consultations and second opinions for new patients so you can feel comfortable in your decision to trust us with your dental care!
We utilize the highest quality, clinically relevant technology to ensure that we don't miss anything critical to your optimal oral health. A big part of that is our use of low radiation digital x-rays and cone beam scans (CT scans), inter proximal decay illuminating fiber-optic lights, diagnostic intramural cameras and magnification. All these things give you the opportunity to be as proactive in your oral health as you want to be!
Cleanings and Periodontal
A strong foundation is necessary for high quality dentistry to succeed. That’s why we put so much emphasis on periodontal health. Our hygienists will assist you in maintaining your periodontal health with regular cleanings and if necessary they will recommend a deep cleaning . We recommend cleanings every 6 months for maintenance of healthy gums unless periodontal disease is present, in which case the frequency may be increased.
Composite (White) Fillings
The word "cavity" is likely the most feared word in a dental setting. We understand that and work to ensure any problems are noticed and corrected as early as possible. In conjunction with our diagnostic procedures, many times we are able to catch the dreaded cavity in its infancy allowing for efficient, painless and streamlined correction of the problem. We also use desensitizers on all fillings to reduce the amount of sensitivity once you are home!
Crown and Bridge
Sometimes cavities get too big, teeth get crack or even break apart. In these cases, typically we can fix the problem with crowns or bridges. Crown and bridge procedures effectively restore your teeth to like new condition! We use an in office milling and firing process to make your crown or bridge in the office. This allows for a timely completion to the procedure. What used to take 3 weeks to accomplish can easily be done in as little as one day!
Root Canal Treatment
Ok, maybe the words "root canal" knock the word "cavity" off its terrifying perch! But, just like everything in dentistry the earlier a problem is caught the easier and more effectively it can be treated. Our CBCT scanner gives us a 3D look into the tooth and jaw bone allowing us to be much more proactive with treatment and stopping the problem before it gets too bad. Temperature sensitivity, swelling and/or pain are common precursors to root problems.
Sometimes teeth can't be saved and an extraction, or removal of the tooth is warranted. These decisions don't come lightly. This is really a last resort procedure, but you should also know that it is fixable with a number of different options. Dentures, bridges or implants are all good ways to replace those missing teeth and getting you back to your smiley self!
Dental implants have a number of uses in dentistry. One of the most common uses is to replace missing teeth. Another is to stabilize dentures. Implants have revolutionized dentistry. Implant replaced teeth can be cleaned and flossed like natural teeth and restore function to normal levels. Wh have a lot of experience in placing and restoring implants. And, with our in office milling machine we can restore them quickly and efficiently with custom made parts!
Cosmetic dentistry... that's a broad term! Cosmetics involves a number of procedures in dentistry. Removing old metal fillings and replacing them with new tooth colored white ones, whitening teeth, esthetic crowns and veneers all fall within its realm! Cosmetic Dentistry truly takes an artistic eye to accomplish effectively. If you are unhappy with the color, shape or alignment of your teeth we can help!
Clear aligners are gaining in popularity and we are proud to be providers of this technology for our patients. Through a series of clear trays, orthodontic concerns can be resolved. This is a great option for adult patients who want to avoid the esthetic nightmare of traditional wire and bracket orthodontics for more minor tooth movement. If you would like to know if this is an option for you please contact us for a free consultation.
Dentures are an affordable way to replace one or more, or all of your missing teeth. Partial dentures are metal or acrylic appliances that replace a few missing teeth and are stabilized on remains healthy teeth. Complete dentures replace all teeth and are retained by suction or (in best case scenarios) implants. There are many ways to use implants in removable denture therapy. We can answer all these questions for you and help come to a solution that works and is in your budget.
Temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD) is a term that refers to pain or inflammation in the jaw joint. These can be pretty uncomfortable. Fortunately there are a number of non-invasive treatments to help with this problem. We encourage a more medical model for treating these issues including NSAID treatment or use of occlusal guards prior to considering more invasive treatment. However if more invasive treatment is needed we work with highly skilled specialists get you optimal results.
