Meet Our Team
We recommend patients schedule a teeth cleaning every six months. During this appointment, we will remove plaque and calculus from your teeth in order to reveal a bright and polished smile. We may also take x-rays in order to detect cavities that cannot be seen by the naked eye.
Digital radiography (digital x-ray) is the latest technology used to take dental x-rays. This technique uses an electronic sensor that captures and stores the digital image on a computer. This image can be instantly viewed and enlarged helping the dentist and dental hygienist detect problems easier.
Dental x-rays are essential, preventive, diagnostic tools that provide valuable information not visible during a regular dental exam. Dentists and dental hygienists use this information to safely and accurately detect hidden dental abnormalities and complete an accurate treatment plan.

Crowns & Bridges
Crowns are necessary when a tooth is severely damaged or has suffered from advanced decay and cannot be fixed with bonded filling material. Crowns cover the remaining tooth and restore its function, strength, and aesthetics. Several crown material options are available.
Bridges can be utilized when tooth loss occurs due to gum disease, decay, or injury. The loss of the tooth can create greater problems for your dental health if it is not corrected. The teeth next to the missing tooth, or teeth, can begin to move resulting in pain and discomfort. With bridges, our doctors will close any gaps in your mouth. The bridge looks and acts just like natural teeth, is permanently cemented, and helps to maintain the position of the rest of your teeth.
Dentures & Partial Dentures
A denture is a removable dental appliance replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissue. They resemble your natural teeth and may even enhance your smile.
There are two types of dentures – complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all of the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. A partial denture not only fills in the spaces created by missing teeth, it prevents other teeth from shifting.
Dentures are very durable appliances and will last many years, but may have to be remade, repaired, or readjusted due to normal wear.
In many cases, dental implants provide the best option for replacing missing teeth. We will provide a comprehensive evaluation if you have missing teeth and are considering dental implant therapy. We have multiple options available for replacing a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth.
Our office strives to make this option affordable for all our patients, so you can enjoy the full benefits of this technology. Many patients are able to have the entire implant procedure completed right here in our office.
Endodontic Therapy (Root Canals)
Root canal therapy is needed when a cavity has reached the pulp of a tooth causing an infection of the nerve, or when severe trauma has affected the tooth. Once the pulp has become infected, it must be treated to avoid further issues.
When endodontic therapy is performed, your dentist will clean out the infected pulp, and disinfect the canals of the tooth. Once the area has been disinfected, the canals of the tooth are filled with a special material to prevent further infections, and help heal the tooth. Sometimes a core build-up, bonded post, and crown are necessary for restoring a tooth to function.
Your temporomandibular joints (TMJ) reside in front of your ears and play a crucial role in healthy, pain-free jaw motion. When impacted by stress, a misaligned bite, trauma, or a variety of other factors, these joints can malfunction and cause discomfort that disrupts your daily activities. Our dentist treats TMJ-related pain with non-invasive therapies that restore comfortable jaw motion and healthy oral function.
- A jaw that clicks or pops
- Inability to fully open or close your mouth
- Chronic headaches, including migraines
- Chronic earaches
- Tingling in the hands and fingers
- Unexplained facial, neck, jaw, or shoulder pain
Have Questions About Dental Care?
Our office offers a variety of teeth whitening options, including passive tray whitening and professional strength white strips. Soon after starting treatment at our office, you will start to see a whiter and brighter smile.
With the tray method, you will have impressions of your teeth taken which will be used to fabricate custom vinyl trays. You will place a carbamide peroxide gel in the trays and wear them for about 3 hours or overnight. The tray process takes about 3 to 4 weeks of daily use. There are three different strengths of gel that can be used, but it is important to keep in mind the higher the strength the higher the risk for reactions or tooth sensitivity.
Veneers are thin porcelain or ceramic restoration that are applied and bonded to the front of your existing tooth structure. Porcelain veneers are an excellent choice for correcting gaps between teeth or discoloration from failing fillings or stained enamel.
When applied to the tooth, a veneer is virtually undetectable. Due to its thin nature, the veneer will allow us to be quite conservative in removing tooth structure. With proper design, veneers are beautiful, long lasting, and resistant to stain from tea, coffee, and red wine.
