We want your smile to be as healthy as possible in all stages of your life. We believe that prevention and general maintenance is the best way to achieve optimal oral health through the years. Our staff is here to help you and your family establish dental routines and habits that help you maintain the highest oral health. We offer a variety of general and preventive services.
We create customized night guards and splints for patients who have tendencies to clench and grind their teeth and for bruxism in more advanced cases. The customized appliance will deprogram and relax the jaw muscles, decreasing the jaw pain. It will also help prevent further damage to the jaw joints and teeth.
No one can predict when a dental emergency is going to occur. They happen when you least expect them, and often when it’s the least convenient for you. We leave room in our daily schedule for both new and existing patients to to call on us if they have discomfort or a dental emergency. We put the comfort of our patients first.
Diagnosing gum disease in the early stages is critical to periodontal health. In addition to deep professional cleaning treatments and regular maintenance, we offer other periodontal services. For more information, check out our periodontal page.
Sealants are applied to the deep grooves on the surface of the back teeth, as this is the area where decay is most likely to occur. Because the grooves are too small to effectively clean when brushing, they often harbor plaque and bacteria. We apply a dental composite material to seal these grooves and prevent decay.
Regular professional cleanings are vital to maintaining good oral health. We have developed a unique plan of action to deter cavities or tooth decay. First, we identify areas susceptible to decay in our high risk patients, and develop a treatment plan that includes hygiene techniques for caries control. We recommend routine professional cleanings based on your personal needs. Some of our patients need to come see us every three months, others only every six to eight. We look forward to helping you define the perfect routine to thoroughly remove debris, tartar, and bacteria from the teeth and gums and reach a healthy, pain-free mouth.
Intraoral cameras allow you to see exactly what the dentist sees, so you can be better informed on your overall dental condition. This technology shows you what the inside of your mouth looks like, giving you a detailed, personal view. Instead of just taking our word for it, you can see for yourself. Intraoral cameras allow you to make decisions based on what you see.
Our office is equipped with digital x-ray technology that allows us to show clear, concise images to our patients. These high-definition images show full-mouth or panoramic views, and help us find cavities. Our digital x-rays provide much less exposure to radiation.
Oral Cancer is becoming increasingly common among younger patients. Risk factors include tobacco and alcohol use, but even those who don’t smoke, chew, or drink may develop oral cancer. We provide screenings that allow us to identify any precancerous tissues. Our clinical screenings are on par with industry standards for early oral cancer detection.
We address all areas of your mouth during a periodic or new patient exam. We check for gum disease, examine your hard and soft tissues, evaluate your jaw function, and look for decay and other oral health issues. We then formulate a treatment plan based on your individual needs, and equip you with the information you need to continue your path to a healthy smile and a wonderful smile.
