Types of Dental Cleanings

  • Dental Prophylaxis is done for patients without the presents of bone loss (aka dental prophy) to prevent gingivitis and periodontal disease. ​

Oral Surgery

  • We provide a wide range of oral surgery from wisdom teeth extractions, tori removal to baby teeth extractions.
  • We offer oral conscious sedation, oral sedation and nitrous oxide

Invisalign (aka Clear Braces)

  • Invisalign straightens teeth using a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that are custom-made specifically for your teeth. As you replace each aligner every two weeks, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week, gradually moving towards the projected final position. 

Aesthetic Dentistry and Veneers

  • Veneers (aka porcelain veneers) are thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored porcelain designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve their appearance. These veneers are bonded to the teeth changing their color, shape, size, or length.
  • Aesthetic Dentistry can involve multiple aspects such as veneers, Invisalgin, whitening, ect. 

Sedation Dentistry

  • We offer Oral Conscious Sedation which entails taking a medication at home before an appointment followed by administration of additional medication at the office which can also be combined with nitrous oxide. Patients do not usually recall most of their appointments.
  • We have an IV Sedation doctor available on an as needed basis for those who wish to be put asleep.
  • All patients under oral sedation are required to have a responsible adult to drive them to and from the office and monitor the patient after their treatment.

Root Canals​

  • ​A root canal is a treatment to repair and save a badly damaged or infected tooth. The procedure involves removing the damaged area of the tooth (the pulp), cleaning and disinfecting it and then filling and sealing it.

Tooth Colored Restorations (aka Composite Fillings)

  • Fillings are required when decay is presents or tooth structure is missing to restore the tooth to its appearance and function.                                                                                                                                                                
  • We do not offer metal fillings.

Dental Implants

  • A dental implant is a titanium post (like a tooth root) that is surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath the gum line that allows a crown, bridge or denture to be attached. 
  • Implant is a permanent restoration that does not come in and out.
  • Implants can be used to support a bridge or denture
  • Hybrid Implants can allow for all teeth to be replaced without being removable.

Complete Dentures, Partial Dentures and Immediate Dentures

  • Immediate Denturesallow patients to never go without teeth. Extractions are staged to allow immediate placement of the denture on the day of delivery. Relines are done following treatment to allow for proper fit and function. After 4-6 months a final reline is performed to fit the denture to the healed ridge. Immediate Dentures are removable.
  • Partial Dentures replace teeth that are missing and use the existing teeth as anchors to support the partial denture. Partials are an option for patients who have a minimum of 3 existing teeth. Partial dentures are removable.
  • Complete Dentures replace all missing teeth and can be combined with implants for better stability. 
  • Implant Retained Dentures (aka Hybrid Dentures) are dentures that are attached to implants to allow for more stability and less movement of the denture.
