Popular Dental Procedures
Whatever your state of oral health, we will help you improve it, then maintain it, for a confident smile and healthy life. We offer a full range of dental services, including:
Dental braces—We administer braces to patients of all ages to correct underbites, overbites, malocclusion, crooked teeth, crowding, and more. Various orthodontic treatment options are available, from traditional metal braces to clear braces. We will work with you to make sure you receive the option that matches your personal needs.
Implants—When patients are missing teeth or wear poor-fitting dentures, dental implants may be recommended. An implant is a screw-like component (essentially an artificial tooth root) surgically embedded into the jaw bone and then topped with a replacement tooth (crown) or teeth (bridge or denture). Dental implants can last a lifetime when good oral health is maintained.
Root canal therapy— We may recommend a root canal when the nerve of a tooth has been severely damaged and the tooth cannot be restored. During this procedure, all infected tissue is removed from the affected tooth, and the interior chambers are filled with a rubber-like dental material. This saves the tooth and prevents infection from spreading. Oftentimes, a crown is applied seal and strengthen the tooth.
Multiple tooth extraction—A serious injury or extensive, unchecked tooth decay can damage teeth to the point that they must be removed. In other cases, extraction is necessary prior to orthodontic treatment or wearing a denture. Wisdom teeth, called third molars, may also require extraction if they become impacted or cause pain. If you need one or many teeth removed, our dentists will use contemporary modalities and medication to ensure your comfort.
Dental hygiene—One of the most effective ways to prevent tooth decay and gum disease is by having a good dental care routine at home. This includes properly brushing your teeth at least twice a day, ideally in the morning and again before going to bed, as well as flossing daily. In addition, we encourage patients to come in regularly for checkups and dental hygiene visits. These involve an oral examination by the dentist and a thorough cleaning of the gums and teeth by a dental hygienist.
Sleep dentistry— Sedation, or sleep dentistry, is often recommended for patients who feel extremely anxious about going to the dentist or are unable to become (and stay) numb with an anesthetic. People who have trouble sitting in a dental chair for extended periods of time (which may be required for an extensive procedure) or suffer from a sensitive gag reflex may also benefit from sleep dentistry.
