Some of the services we offer include, but are not limited to:

Dental Implants

Dental implants are becoming a cornerstone of dentistry and provide the best option for replacing missing teeth in certain situations. They are artificial tooth roots that provide a permanent base for fixed, replacement teeth. Compared to dentures, bridges and crowns, dental implants are a popular and effective long-term solution for people who suffer from missing teeth, failing teeth, or chronic dental problems. Because they fit, feel and function like natural teeth, dental implants are quickly becoming the new standard in tooth replacement.

Dental implants generally have three parts:

  • The implant: A screw that serves as a root for your new teeth. This is what permanently attaches to your jaw
  • The abutment: A permanent, but removable by your doctor, connector that supports and holds a tooth or set of teeth
  • The crown (or prosthetic tooth): This is the part of the tooth that you can see. It’s usually made of zirconium or porcelain for durability and aesthetics

Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or a full upper and/or lower set of teeth. If you need to restore a full arch, you may be a perfect candidate for the all-on-four treatment.

CEREC Same-Day Crowns

The latest technology in restorative dentistry, CEREC allows us to scan, design, and mill beautiful restorations right in the office. Using sophisticated CAD/CAM systems for production of all ceramic inlays, onlays, partial crowns, veneers, and crowns, the CEREC system makes receiving dental treatment easier and more convenient for you than ever. Imagine coming in for an appointment and walking out the same day with a strong, durable, and cosmetically pleasing crown already in place.

Benefits of CEREC technology include:

  • Fast camera scans and no silicone impressions
  • No temporary crowns
  • Single-appointment treatment

Endodontics

Endodontics deals with the tooth pulp and the tissues surrounding the root of a tooth, including root canal therapy and apexification – a procedure performed to encourage the closure of the apex of a Young tooth.

Oral Surgery

We perform both simple and surgical extractions including Operculectomy, the surgical excision of mucosa over an erupted tooth.

Orthodontics

Orthodontics is a specialty of dentistry that is concerned with the study and treatment of malocclusions (improper bites), which may be a result of tooth irregularity, disproportionate jaw relationships, or both. An excellent option for many candidates is Invisalign®.

Invisalign® is a system that straightens teeth without the use of traditional braces. A series of clear plastic aligners are utilized to create tooth movement. Moving teeth with removable aligners is not new. It is the computer program that generates a series of aligners with small changes that is new.

Invisalign® is recommended for most orthodontic situations with mild to moderate spacing or crowding. The aligners are virtually undetectable, easy to use, and comfortable to wear.

Periodontics

We also specialize in Periodontics, the branch of dentistry which studies supporting structures of teeth, and the diseases and conditions that affect them. We perform Gingevectomy, a periodontal surgical procedure which includes removal of gum tissue due to disease or for recontouring. We also perform Crown lengthening.
