Preventive

A dental sealant is a thin coating of plastic material that is applied to the teeth to prevent tooth decay. The sealant bonds to the teeth and locks out cavity-causing bacteria.

Fluoride is a natural mineral that enhances tooth strength and protects against cavities. This treatment may be applied after your cleaning in the form of a foam, gel, or mouth rinse.

Teeth are at high risk during physical activity. A custom mouthguard adds an additional layer of protection against objects and others involved in the sport or activity.

Many people grind their teeth at night, leading to gum recession and damaged teeth. Wearing a nightguard can protect your smile and ward off additional restorative work.

Early detection of oral cancer increases your chances of curing it. Our team will search for any precancerous signs or problem areas during each biannual exam.

If you suffer from sleep apnea, a custom sleep apnea appliance can position your mouth to open up your airways and improve your sleep.

TMJ disorders cause severe pain in the jaw and the surrounding muscles. Our team will perform comprehensive tests to determine what’s causing your pain and develop a conservative, customized treatment plan to correct it.

Restorative

Fillings are used to support a tooth when decay has been removed. We offer composite fillings, which are tooth-colored and undetectable to the naked eye.

If you have gaps left behind by missing teeth, dental bridges can fill the empty space with false teeth that blend in seamlessly with your smile.

Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that cover damaged or unsightly teeth. With a variety of material choices, crowns can be made to match the exact shade of your natural teeth.

This common tooth replacement option consists of small, titanium posts that are surgically fused with your jawbone. They serve as the foundation for a custom tooth restoration.

While we hope to avoid extracting a tooth, sometimes it is necessary for your dental health. We will use gentle force to remove the tooth and provide you with replacement options.

For multiple missing teeth or even a full arch replacement, full and partial dentures can provide you with a functional, beautiful smile once more.

Cosmetic

Lumineers are a specific brand of veneers. Their ultra-thin shells of porcelain are bonded to the front of your teeth, but require much less modification to your natural tooth.

For those who don’t have time to whiten their teeth at home, one-visit whitening gives you a brighter, whiter smile in as little as one hour.

Porcelain veneers can transform your smile by bonding thin wafers of porcelain to the front of your teeth. Veneers can correct tooth shape, size, shade, and even cracks or chips.

Orthodontics

With discreet, tooth-colored wires and brackets, ceramic braces straighten your smile similarly to traditional braces, but without a mouth full of metal.

Invisalign uses sets of clear aligner trays to gradually and invisibly move your teeth into their desired positions.

This traditional teeth straightening method uses metal wires and brackets to realign your teeth and adjust any bite issues you may have.

Sedation

Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is the most gentle form of sedation we offer. It is administered through a small mask that is placed over your nose for the duration of treatment. While we care for your smile, the inhalation of the gas puts you at ease and can even make you feel a bit giddy. Its effects are easily reversed by simply breathing oxygen for a short period of time after treatment is over. It is gentle enough for children and safe enough that adults can drive themselves home after their visit.

Depending on your dosage, oral conscious sedation can range from a mild to moderate form of sedation. This method is administered as a small, prescribed pill that is taken shortly before your appointment time so you feel relaxed before the visit begins. Many patients with dental anxiety benefit from this method as its effects can be felt before even walking into the dentist’s office. After treatment, patients typically feel extremely groggy and we recommend you have someone to drive you home afterwards.

As a step above oral conscious sedation, IV sedation is actually administered through a vein. Patients see the effects of IV sedation more quickly than laughing gas and the level of sedation is monitored and adjusted continuously. This ensures that your desired level of relaxation is always maintained safely. Following treatment, you will certainly need assistance getting home as the effects can take a bit of time to wear off.
