Laser Dentistry

  • Typical treatments with the laser are faster, easier to perform and with less pain and shorter healing times compared to conventional treatments. Treatments with the laser can include but are not limited to: Fillings, root canals, crown preps, and oral surgery. 

 Crowns 

  • Sometimes a tooth cannot be restored with a filling. If too much tooth structure is compromised, a crown must be used to protect the remaining tooth structure from breaking. These crowns are generally tooth colored, blend in well with the rest of your teeth, and will give your teeth the longevity a filling couldn't provide.

Bridges

  • Bridges are a convenient way of replacing missing teeth. Essentially, a bridge is three or more crowns made at the same time and made into one piece. Each tooth next to the missing tooth space are adjusted to be able to support the bridge. The bridge is then cemented on permanently. Bridges are generally tooth colored and are aesthetically pleasing. Just remember you'll need to clean underneath the bridge to prevent cavities on the supporting teeth!

Complete and Partial Dentures

  • The smile and function of your mouth and teeth can be restored with use of a complete or partial denture. With newer, more natural looking materials and trust in our quality labs, you can chew and smile with confidence.

Root Canal Therapy

  • Teeth have many layers: strong enamel on the outside, sensitive dentin directly under the enamel, and then the pulp or "nerve" as the bottom layer. A fractured tooth, a traumatic injury, or a deep cavity leaves the pulp susceptible to bacterial infection. Once the pulp is affected, the tooth will need a root canal to be restored. The inside of the tooth is cleaned out and cleared of infection and filled with a rubbery material to protect the inside of the tooth from being infected again. A crown is then placed on top of the tooth to protect it from breaking. In most cases, this procedure is done in-office. Special cases will be referred to a specialist if necessary.

Tooth Colored Restorations

  • Amalgam fillings are very strong, good quality restorations, but only in certain cases. Generally, composite restorations are a better option for most patients. They seal with the tooth better, come in a variety of shades to blend naturally with the surrounding tooth structure, and can be repaired more easily than an amalgam filling.

Botox

  • Therapeutic and aesthetic options available
  • Treatment areas include: forehead, lips, nose, smile lines, gummy smile, and more!
  • Specific areas of treatment for migraines due to TMD 

Periodontal Therapy

  • Our periodontal disease management program includes gum evaluation at every cleaning and checkup appointment, in-office nonsurgical periodontal therapy, and referral to specialists when necessary. 

    Digital Radiography

    • Digital x-rays allow us to get clear, immediate images with an extremely low dose of radiation

    Extractions

    • Extractions may be necessary for orthodontic treatment, crowding, impacted teeth, or severely decayed teeth. Most extractions can be done in-office, with or without laughing gas to make the experience more comfortable. If you prefer to be sedated for extractions, we can refer you to an oral surgeon. 

    Invisalign

    • Clear, removable braces with no wires or brackets! Invisalign is a system of custom trays that align your teeth quickly without the root shortening seen with traditional braces. The Invisalign lab creates a plan for how long you'll need to be in treatment and how many sets of trays it will take to get to your ideal occlusion. Before you even get started, you'll get to see a graphic of what your teeth will look like after treatment, based off of your initial impressions. 

    Implants

    • Implants are becoming the new standard for replacing missing teeth. The implant is placed into the bone and left to heal for a few months. A crown is then placed on top of the implant. This saves the surrounding teeth from needing to be affected (like with a bridge). The implant cannot get a cavity so it will not need to be restored again. Most implants can be done in-office without the need for referral to a specialist. This can reduce costs significantly.

    Teeth Whitening

    • We offer three whitening options:
      • A take-home whitening kit consisting of 10 whitening trays for you to use at your convenience.
      • Custom trays made from impressions of your teeth, and take-home whitening gel. If you run out of whitening gel, refills can be purchased!
      • In-office whitening with the Opalescence Boost system in about an hour!

    Laser Frenectomies

    • The flanging of the lips and upward motion of the tongue are very important oral motor skills, especially for nursing infants. If the tongue or lip are "tied down", this is referred to as a lip or tongue tie. Breastfeeding is becoming more popular, and new moms are finding it difficult to breastfeed babies with tongue and lip ties. These ties can be revised easily with the laser. It only takes a few minutes, only topical analgesic is needed, and mom and baby can have a more successful breastfeeding journey.
