Once we’ve helped you restore a beautiful and healthy smile, our additional dental services are here to ensure it will last for years to come!

Our Additional Dental Services

We’re here when you need us most! If you experience a severe toothache, have a tooth dislodged or knocked out, or have any other sudden emergency, call our office! We can generally see emergency patients the same day.

Proactively keeping teeth healthy is one way to prevent decay, damage, or disease. We provide comprehensive examinations, x-rays, hygiene cleanings, sealants, and fluoride treatment.

If you have had the misfortune of a cavity or damage to your tooth, a composite filling can restore its function and natural beauty metal-free!

Don’t let damage or a large cavity keep your teeth from their optimal function and aesthetics! Inlays and onlays help restore strength to teeth that have been chipped or treated so a dental crown is not needed.

If your bite feels “off” it is most likely because some of your teeth don’t quite fit together and are causing tension, pain, or stiffness in your muscles and joints. Adjusting the surface of these problem teeth restores bite balance.

Oral pathology relates to any diseases of the mouth, including cysts and tumors. We check for subtle signs and changes to the mucosa, or the interior lining of the mouth, and tongue for changes to color and texture.

Children’s dental health is critical to ensuring they maintain good hygiene habits and better overall oral health as they grow older. Our pediatric appointments focus on education and prevention, including x-rays, oral exams, and sealants.
Chronic bruxism (teeth grinding and clenching) wears down tooth enamel, causes muscle pain and stiffness, and can lead to issues with the temporomandibular joint and jaw pain. Our treatment includes custom mouth guards that keep teeth apart to help soothe muscles and protect teeth.
We offer local and general anesthetic and The Wand® Anesthesia for sedation services for fearful or anxious patients. Sedation also benefits patients who have sensitive gag reflexes, sensitive teeth, or trouble sitting still.
Gum tissue that covers too much of the tooth crowns gives the appearance of a “gummy” smile, makes it difficult to treat decay, and leaves little room for restorations like dental crowns. We remove and reshape the gum tissue.
The frenulum, or tissue securing the tongue and upper lip, sometimes restricts their movement too much. We remove this tissue with a dental laser, a fast and virtually painless procedure that causes little bleeding.
Teeth with flaws, such as chips or gaps, can be remade to look natural and proportional through bonding. We layer composite bonding material to the tooth, then reshape it to restore natural beauty and strength.

Let us take care of all your dentistry needs.
