Initial Oral Examination
Your initial oral examination begins with diagnostic x-rays.  These include the panoramic, or full mouth,  standard film, and digital close-ups to show inbetween the teeth.  These are used to diagnose not only decay, but also wisdom tooth evaluation, missing or extra teeth, bone disease or tumors, TMJ structure, sinus health, foreign objects (we've found everything from gun pellets to swallowed nose rings), broken or injured jaw bone, and many other important structures.  Every patient, at every cleaning also receives a complete oral cancer screening.  The health of the gum tissue is measured and recorded, and a comprehensive treatment plan is discussed.

Implants
Implants are synthetic roots.  Where a tooth has been extracted or never developed, an implant can be surgically placed and incorporated into the jaw bone, using the same science as hip or knee replacements.  Just on a much smaller scale.  When the implants heal and become anchored to the jawbone, they can then act as a foundation for an artificial tooth or permanent bridge. In some cases, implants can be used to attach dentures. Read More...

Veneers
Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain cemented over the front of your teeth to change their color or shape. Veneers are used on teeth with uneven surfaces or are chipped, discolored, oddly shaped, unevenly spaced or crooked. Read More...

Crowns and Bridges
Crowns are synthetic caps, usually made of a material like porcelain, placed over a tooth. Crowns are typically used to restore a tooth's function and appearance following a restorative procedure such as a root canal. When decay in a tooth has become so advanced that large portions of the tooth must be removed, crowns are often needed to restore the tooth. Read More...

Teeth Whitening
Whitening is probably the most advertised and sought after dental treatment.  Because of this, there are hundreds, if not thousands of products available.  We have tried many many products and researched even more.  There are some very effective and safe ways to whiten teeth, and some other methods that are dissappointing or even harmful.  The most predictable and long lasting method to significantly whiten teeth is one that involves wearing specially fitted retainers at night which hold a prescription whitening gel.   Read More...

Root Canal Therapy
Root canals are tiny passageways that branch off from beneath the top of the tooth, coursing their way vertically downward, until they reach the tip of the root. Read More...

Toothaches
Simple toothaches can often be relieved by rinsing the mouth to clear it of debris and other matter. Sometimes, a toothache can be caused or aggravated by a piece of debris lodged between the tooth and another tooth. Avoid placing an aspirin between your tooth and gum to relieve pain, because the dissolving aspirin can actually harm your gum tissue. Read More...
