Basic dental cleanings are imperative to good oral hygiene. In addition to a healthy smile, cleanings will allow you to detect dental problems early to avoid complicated procedures later.
Basic Dental Cleaning
Child’s First Dental Visit
Our office, as well as The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the American Dental Association (ADA), and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) all recommend establishing a "Dental Home" for your child by one year of age. Children who have a dental home are more likely to receive appropriate preventive and routine oral health care.
Dental sealants are applied to teeth to prevent tooth decay.
We can make night guards to help with clenching and grinding your teeth or sports guards to protect your teeth while playing contact sports.
COSMETIC & RESTORATIVE DENTISTRY
Dental bonding is a conservative way to improve the appearance of your smile.We recommend dental bonding in order to close gaps and spaces between teeth, improve misshapen teeth, lighten stained or discolored teeth, or restore chipped or cracked teeth.
Cosmetic Dental Bonding
Whitening your teeth can be one of the fastest ways to improve the appearance of your smile. Over time, consumption of certain foods, beverages, and tobacco products can cause deep stains to appear on your teeth. In addition, even aging can make teeth become dull and discolored. We offer two teeth whitening options that can brighten your teeth to a more vibrant shade of white. Both our in-office treatments and custom-tailored at-home kits can effectively whiten your smile for a healthier, more youthful look.
Porcelain veneers, also known as dental veneers, are a popular, virtually painless cosmetic dentistry procedure that can address a wide variety of common dental concerns. Constructed from a very thin, yet durable, ceramic material, veneers are bonded to the front of each tooth to form a beautiful, natural-looking smile.
A crown is a restoration used to protect a tooth which is at an increased risk of breaking or fracturing. Placing crowns on teeth can help patients to avoid dental emergencies, broken teeth, and more extensive and expensive dental treatment. Modern crowns are highly aesthetic and can be used as a cosmetic option.
Tooth Colored Crowns
Bonding is a composite resin filling that is used to restore decaying teeth
Similar to dental fillings, inlays and onlays repair damage to your teeth caused by decay or wear. To do this, the damaged part of your tooth is removed, a fabrication (either inlay or onlay) is crafted in our dental lab, and it is bonded to your tooth.
Inlays & Onlays
Dental bridges are used to replace missing teeth.
Dentures & Partials are prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth.Depending on your individual needs, they can be anchored with implants to secure them in the mouth.

Periodontal Treatments and Maintenance
Periodontal treatment methods depend upon the type and severity of the disease. Your dentist and dental hygienist will evaluate for periodontal disease and recommend the appropriate treatment.
Root Planning and Scaling
It only takes twenty four hours for plaque that is not removed from your teeth to turn into calculus (tartar)! Daily home cleaning helps control plaque and tartar formation, but those hard to reach areas will always need special attention.
If the pockets do not heal after scaling and root planing, periodontal surgery may be needed to reduce pocket depths, making teeth easier to clean. Your dentist may also recommend that you see a Periodontist (specialist of the gums and supporting bone).
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy is needed when the nerve of a tooth is affected by decay or infection. In order to save the tooth, the pulp (the living tissue inside the tooth), nerves, bacteria, and any decay are removed and the resulting space is filled with special, medicated, dental materials, which restore the tooth to its full function.
Having a root canal done on a tooth is the treatment of choice to save a tooth that otherwise would die and have to be removed. Many patients believe that removing a tooth that has problems is the solution, but what is not realized is that extracting (pulling) a tooth will ultimately be more costly and cause significant problems for adjacent teeth.
Oral and Reconstructive Surgery
Dental implants are an excellent and permanent solution that can restore the functionality and appearance of your teeth. Strong titanium dental implants can be fused to the jawbone and then capped with a crown or bridge to look and operate like natural teeth.
There are instances when a tooth cannot be restored. Extensive decay as a result of chronic neglect or trauma that results in the inadvertent fracture of teeth are two leading causes for a tooth to be deemed non-salvageable. There are additionally many other causes. Ultimately, under these circumstances, we may recommend the extraction or removal of these teeth as a means to improving the overall state of your oral health.
Simple & Surgical Extractions
Wisdom Teeth Extractions
Third molars, commonly referred to as wisdom teeth, are usually the last four of 32 teeth to erupt (surface) in the mouth, generally making their appearance between the ages of 17 to 25. They are located at the back of the mouth (top and bottom), near the entrance to the throat.
