  • Dental Implants

    • A dental implant is a titanium replacement tooth root that helps restore a more natural function and appearance to a missing tooth or teeth. At our office we use three dimensional digital imaging (Cone Beam CT) to provide exact placement of the implant. Typically, implants have a success rate of 95-98%. There are many advantages to dental implants over conventional tooth replacement options including:

      • Improved speech

      • Improved smile/esthetics

      • Better chewing efficiency and force

      • Improved durability and long-term success.

  • Tooth Whitening/Zoom Whitening

    • We provide various professional tooth whitening systems including ZOOM! ZOOM! is a professional whitening system that combines a revolutionary in-office whitening component with a take-home system that gives you the whitest teeth possible with the least amount of tooth sensitivity.

  • Invisalign

    • Invisalign is a clear alternative to traditional orthodontic treatment (i.e., braces). Using multiple clear retainers, we are able to effectively straighten teeth without the need for bands, brackets or wires.

  • Six Month Smiles

    • six month smiles
    • Six Month Smiles is a faster alternative to traditional orthodontic treatment. Using clear brackets, we can frequently correct teeth alignment issues in as little as six months.

  • Veneers

    • Veneers are thin porcelain coverings designed to improve the appearance of the front teeth. Bonded to the teeth, veneers can improve tooth length, shape, color or texture.

  • White Fillings

    • White fillings or composite fillings refer to metal/mercury-free filling material used to restore cavities. These filling materials are bonded into place and offer many advantages over metal/amalgam fillings.

  • Dental Crowns and Bridges

  • Dentures/Partial Dentures

    • We provide both traditional and partial dentures as well as implant-assisted and implant-supported dentures. Compared to traditional dentures and partial dentures, implant-assisted and implant-supported dentures provide greater function and fit.

  • Root Canals/Rotary Endodontics

    • Endodontics, more commonly known as root canal, is a procedure where the roots or nerves of the tooth are removed. This is often due to the fact that they are infected and the tooth is causing pain. Our practice uses state of the art rotary instrumentation and file systems. Rotary Endodontics is an often faster way of performing a root canal utilizing a specific electrical handpiece.

  • Extractions

  • Advanced Technology

    • Cone Beam CT

      • Cone Bean CT uses both a digital x-ray and a cutting edge computer program, a 3D image is created of a patient's mouth. This allows “digital” placement of an implant to assure a giving area is able to receive an implant. In addition it allows us to evaluate impacted teeth in relation to any critical structures prior to extracting teeth. This is the most advanced dental imagining technology on the market today.

    • Dental Laser

      • A dental laser is a soft tissue laser used to shape/re-contour the gingival tissues without the need for a traditional incision. By design the lasers provide multiple advantages over a traditional scalpel including less bleeding, less post-operative discomfort and better soft tissue response. Our hygienists will frequently use the laser as well for destroying bacteria in a periodontal pocket.

    • Digital Impressions

      • Using a revolutionary new device the 3M True Definition Scanner we are able to take digital impressions of crowns instead of a traditional impression. This offers a more accurate impression without impression material.

    • Digital Radiographs (X-Rays)

      • Digital x-rays are quickly becoming adopted by a large percentage of the dental industry. A digital x-ray allows the dentist to take an image of the tooth or teeth and put it into an imaging program. Within this imaging program, there are a number of tools that will allow the dentist to take a very close look at the teeth and surrounding structures with amazing accuracy. As a benefit to the patient, the digital x-ray also provides nearly 80% less radiation than a standard x-ray. This is due to the fact that the digital version of the x-ray is much more sensitive to this radiation and has been specifically designed with the patient in mind.

    • Intraoral Camera

      • The intraoral camera is an amazing diagnostic tool for viewing different angles in the mouth that we would not have been able to just a few years ago. The camera gives us the ability to view the entire mouth on a monitor so that we can get a closer look at any potential issues or problems that may arise. In addition, the patient will have the ability to see for themselves first hand the same images we are seeing. These digital images are also excellent for gaining procedure acceptance from insurance companies.

    • Electric Handpieces

      • There are basically two types of handpieces, air-driven and electric. Electric handpieces are much stronger than air-driven due to the fact that a motor is spinning the bur as opposed to air. This allows the doctor to remove decay faster and quieter with more precision. This will cut down on the time it takes to complete a procedure.
