Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is a potentially life-threatening sleep disorder characterized by repeated pauses in breathing during sleep. The breathing pauses can last anywhere from several seconds to minutes, and happen as often as 30 times or more per hour. Ongoing disrupted breathing causes an imbalance between the carbon dioxide and oxygen levels in the bloodstream, as not enough carbon dioxide is exiting and not enough oxygen is entering the body.

Root Planing & Scaling

Should you have any signs of periodontal disease, a thorough cleaning will be done that might include scaling or root planing. The reason behind these treatments is to remove any dental plaque and tartar, or calculus, which is the reason for periodontal disease and gingival inflammation.

Pediatric Dentistry

Children of all ages are welcome at our practice! A good rule of thumb for a child’s first dental visit is as soon as their first tooth erupts, bring them in. That way, your child can have positive first experiences at a young age and the parent can get valuable advice in helping care for their child’s teeth.

Dental Cleaning and X-rays

Dental x-rays are a great preventive, diagnostic tool that provides important information not visible during a routine dental exam. Our dental team will utilize this important information to safely and accurately detect any dental abnormalities and then create an accurate treatment plan.

Sealants

Sealants are a very efficient and successful method for preventing decay on the biting surfaces of teeth. They are primarily placed on the permanent molars as they erupt in a child’s mouth. The sealants are maintained throughout childhood and can last well into adulthood. Sealants are made of a flowable resin that is applied to the deep pits and fissures of teeth protecting them from harmful acids and plaque buildup commonly found in the mouth. The application of sealants is a simple procedure requiring a short appointment and are proven to be effective in preventing decay in children.

Fluoride Treatment

Periodically we will suggest a fluoride treatment for your teeth. It’s a simple and quick process and can be done during your routine exam. No extra appointment is necessary. Fluoride is a mineral that helps prevent tooth decay and is applied to your teeth. This strengthens the enamel so your smile will be as strong as ever.

Crowns

Crowns are necessary when a tooth is severely damaged or has suffered from advanced decay and cannot be fixed with bonded filling material. Crowns cover the remaining tooth and restore its function, strength, and esthetics. Several crown material options are available including non-metal crowns.

Bridges

Bridges can be utilized when tooth loss occurs due to gum disease, decay, or injury. The loss of the tooth can create greater problems for your dental health if it is not corrected. The teeth next to the missing tooth (or teeth) can begin to move and result in pain, discomfort, and can look unsightly. With bridges, your dentist will close any gaps in your mouth. ​​​​​​​

Periodontal Services

Though your mouth may feel healthy and you may not have any symptoms, periodontal disease can progress without a patient knowing. If left untreated, periodontal disease can destroy the supporting bones in your mouth. This is why early treatment and prevention is so important! Your dentist will make sure you are receiving the highest quality of care that will assist in preventing periodontal disease from developing.

Dental Exam

When you come in for a clinical exam, or routine check up, your dentist will take a look at the overall health of your mouth and teeth and diagnose any problem areas.

Composite Filling

When a tooth is affected by decay, fractures, or cracks, a dental filling is needed to restore the tooth. In a single dental appointment, the decayed or injured tooth will be removed, cleaned, and filled. Composite fillings can be matched to the color of your existing tooth. Since the color is the same as your original tooth, the filling will look aesthetically pleasing and restore your teeth to a healthy, beautiful smile.

Extractions

An extraction is when a patient has a tooth removed from their mouth. Extractions are performed for a variety of reasons, such as tooth decay that has ruined enough of a patient’s tooth structure and a restoration is no longer an option. Other reasons include removing impacted or problematic teeth. For the extraction, our dental team will use local anesthetic to numb the area of the tooth that is going to be removed. Should you have several teeth that are going to be extracted, our dentists will use a general anesthetic and you will be sedated during the entire procedure.

Endodontic Therapy (Root Canals)

Root canal therapy is needed when a cavity has reached the pulp of a tooth causing an infection of the nerve, or when severe trauma has affected the tooth. When endodontic therapy is performed, your dentist will clean out the infected pulp, and disinfect the canals of the tooth. Once the area has been disinfected, the canals of the tooth are filled with a special material to prevent from further infections, and help in the healing of the tooth. Sometimes a core build-up, bonded post, and crown are necessary for restoring a tooth to function.

Sedation Dentistry

Some patients have fears that go back to a bad childhood dental experience or other trauma. These patients tend to put off getting routine dental treatment because of the emotional trauma they go through just trying to get to the office. We are proud to offer sedation dentistry to patients so they can experience an anxiety free visit and receive the dental care they need.

Dental Implants

If you happen to be missing one or more teeth, dental implants could be the perfect solution for you! Dental implants are natural-looking and are permanently anchored into the patient’s jawbone and, unlike traditional bridges, no preparation of adjacent teeth is required.​​​​​​​

Inlays & Onlays

​​​​​​​Traditional inlays were used instead of fillings to replace a small amount of tooth loss that was due to decay. Onlays are similar, but instead of just fitting inside of the tooth, they also cover the chewing surface. Onlays are typically used on the back teeth and will cover one or more of the cusps of the tooth.

Night Guard

A night guard is a plastic dental appliance that fits over the top of the teeth so that the teeth in the upper and lower jaws cannot come into contact with one another when the jaw is closed. Night guards are primarily recommended for patients who have been diagnosed with a condition called bruxism and can prevent the damage that typically occurs to the teeth of those who suffer from this dental problem.
