According to the American Dental Association, you should visit the dentist every six months for a routine cleaning and exam. This appointment helps you keep cavities and other dental issues at bay.
These long-lasting plastic coatings are geared towards sealing the natural grooves and crevices in the chewing surfaces of teeth. By sealing off these problem areas, we can prevent bad bacteria from hiding there.
Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that strengthens and protects tooth enamel. A fluoride treatment may be necessary if a child or adult isn’t getting enough fluoride through their toothpaste and water.
Whether you’re playing contact sports or grinding your teeth at night, we can create a custom-made mouthguard to protect your smile. Both sports and teeth grinding can have a negative impact on your teeth and a mouthguard may be just what you need to preserve your oral health!
Do you have frequent headaches or migraines? We offer NTI therapy to prevent the onset of headaches and boost your overall quality of life. The NTI device is a special type of mouthguard that you wear at night to help prevent teeth grinding, TMJ issues, and other factors that most commonly lead to migraines.
Do you find yourself feeling tired and unalert throughout the day? Do your family members often complain about your snoring? You may have obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). OSA is a sleeping disorder that causes breathing to stop periodically throughout the night. Our sleep apnea appliances will reposition your jaw and keep your airway open to give you a restful night’s sleep.
During your routine checkup, we’ll use a small device to scan to your mouth, throat, and cheeks for any signs or abnormalities. The sooner you catch signs of cancer, the better the chances. A simple dental checkup could save your life!
Life can be rough on our teeth, but you don’t have to settle for a smile that’s not operating at its full capacity! If you have a cavity, tooth pain, or missing teeth, we can help restore your smile with our wide range of restorative dental services.
Fillings are one of the most common ways to treat cavities. After we remove the decay, we use a tooth-colored composite resin to fill in the hole left behind by a cavity. With composite resin, you won’t even be able to tell the filling is there!
Crowns are a versatile tooth restoration used for both cosmetic and restorative purposes. They can strength a weak tooth, protect a damaged tooth, cover aesthetic tooth imperfections, and more. In addition to cementing crowns over damaged teeth, crowns can also be used for tooth replacement by attaching a crown to a single tooth implant.
As their name suggests, dental bridges “bridge” the gaps in your smile. Whether you’re missing one tooth or multiple teeth in a row, this natural-looking prosthesis will fill in the space left behind from missing teeth. In addition to traditional bridges, we also offer implant-supported bridges that attach to implants on either side of the space.
Our custom-made dentures can give you back a complete, youthful-looking smile. We can handcraft dentures to replace most or all of your teeth on both your upper and lower arch. Thanks to advancements in dentistry, dentures now look and feel similar to your natural teeth. In addition to traditional dentures, we can also stabilize your dentures if you have implants to keep them from slipping or sliding throughout the day.
If you have a severely damaged or decayed tooth, root canal therapy may be the last resort to saving your natural tooth. A root canal is utilized to remove the damaged pulp and sterilize the tooth to prevent future infection and alleviate tooth pain.
First and foremost, we try to save your natural teeth, but there are some cases in which a tooth extraction is the only way to preserve your oral health. If you need an extraction, don’t fear. We will thoroughly numb the area, gently remove the tooth, and provide you with a detailed set of aftercare instructions to ensure a smooth recovery.
We create custom-made dental implant restorations to attach to your dental implants. From single-tooth replacement with dental crowns to multi-tooth replacement with bridges and dentures, our team will work with you and your oral surgeon to complete your smile!
Cosmetic Smile Enhancements
Are you unhappy with the appearance of your smile? Cosmetic dentistry can transform the look of your teeth in both subtle and dramatic ways. Our goal is to help turn your dream smile into a reality!
Teeth whitening is a quick and easy way to enhance your smile’s appearance and boost your self-confidence. Instead of spending time in an office having your teeth whitened, we can create custom-fitted whitening trays so that you can professionally brighten your teeth in the comfort and convenience of your own home.
Porcelain veneers are the jack of all trades for cosmetic dentistry. They can cover cracks and chips, close small gaps, whiten teeth that are too discolored for traditional whitening, lengthen teeth, and more. Veneers can help you attain pretty much any smile you can imagine.
