Our dental treatments are designed to meet your individual dental needs. We will work with you to ensure your understanding of your dental health and treatment options while providing for your comfort and safety.
We have a commitment to our patients to evaluate new technology and the latest procedures to meet their ever-changing needs. Digital radiography is an important part of our treatment, allowing us to diagnose with lower levels of radiation. Intraoral cameras and Dental Microscope provide our patients with clear images of their teeth on a computer screen right in front of them so that they can see their actual dental condition for themselves and have a better understanding of our findings and recommendations. Our General and Cosmetic Dentistry are designed for patients with an emphasis on making you comfortable.

Sealants and Fluoride
A sealant is a plastic material that is usually applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth: premolars and molars. This plastic resin bonds into the depressions and grooves (pits and fissures) of the chewing surfaces of back teeth. The sealant acts as a barrier, protecting the enamel from plaque and acids. Thorough brushing and flossing help remove food particles and plaque from smooth surfaces of teeth; however, toothbrush bristles cannot reach all the way into the depressions and grooves. Sealants protect these vulnerable areas by "sealing out" plaque and food.
Fluoride is a mineral that occurs naturally in all water sources, including the oceans, in lakes and in underground water sources. Extensive research has shown that optimal levels of fluoride not only reduce cavities in children and adults but also help repair the early stages of tooth decay even before the decay is visible.
Periodontal disease is an infection of the tissues that support your teeth. Your gum tissue is not attached to the teeth as high as it may seem. There is a very shallow v-shaped crevice called a sulcus between the tooth and gums. Periodontal diseases attack just below the gum line in the sulcus, where they cause the attachment to the tooth and its supporting tissues to break down. As the tissues are damaged, the sulcus develops into a pocket: generally, the more severe the disease, the greater the depth of the pocket. Periodontal diseases are classified according to the severity of the disease. The two major stages are gingivitis and periodontitis. Gingivitis is a milder and reversible form of periodontal disease that only affects the gums. Gingivitis may lead to more serious, destructive forms of periodontal disease called periodontitis.
Improving periodontal conditions may include a special cleaning called scaling and root planning, also known as deep cleaning. Our office offers non-surgical and surgical periodontal treatment. We have a board certified periodontist in the house to provide surgical periodontal treatment and implant therapy
Nightguards and Athletic Mouthguards
A properly fitted mouthguard, or mouth protector, is an important piece of athletic gear that can help protect your smile. Mouthguards help cushion blows that might otherwise cause broken teeth, injuries to the lips, tongue, face or jaw and can reduce concussions.
A nightguard relieves some of the pressure of grinding and clenching, which can result in the wearing down of teeth as well as mandibular pain and frequent headaches. We custom make our nightguards to fit over the teeth on one jaw and prevent contact with the opposing teeth.
