Our Services

We provide a full range of general dentistry services for patients of all ages. Our team can take care of everything from routine checkups and dental cleanings to cosmetic dental treatments.

Dental Cleanings

These preventative visits are an essential part of maintaining healthy teeth and gums. During a dental cleaning, our dentist will remove any plaque or tartar from the surfaces of your mouth. This helps keep your smile bright and healthy.

It is recommended that you get a routine dental cleaning every six months to prevent gum disease, which is the main cause of tooth loss.

Dental Fillings

If you have damaged, decayed, or cracked teeth, we may recommend a tooth-colored filling as a way to restore them. Dental fillings are made of composite resin material which bonds with your natural tooth structure.

Dental fillings come in several types, including amalgam (silver), gold, porcelain, and composite resins. The type of filling material that’s right for you depends on many factors, such as the condition of your existing tooth, whether there are cracks or chips, and how much damage has occurred. We’ll discuss these options with you so you can make an informed decision.

Dental Crowns

A crown is a cap placed over the top of a tooth. When a tooth becomes severely worn down, it may need to be replaced by a crown. A dental crown strengthens the tooth and restores its shape and size.

A dental crown is necessary when you have one or more of the following conditions:

  • When a large amount of tooth decay exists under the gum line
  • When there is extensive damage to the tooth’s surface
  • When the tooth is fractured
  • When a tooth needs repair after trauma
  • When a tooth has become loose or tilted
  • When conventional methods cannot save a tooth

During this procedure, our dentist will prepare the affected tooth by removing decay and shaping the remaining tooth structure. Then, we will apply a temporary crown to protect the prepared tooth until the permanent crown is ready. Once the final crown is complete, it will be cemented onto the tooth.

Dentures

Dentures are removable teeth prostheses that replace missing teeth. Dentures can either be partial or complete. Partial dentures are used when only some of the teeth need replacement. Complete dentures are used when all of the teeth in a row need replacement and are fixed to the jaw bone.

Root Canal Treatment

A root canal procedure is performed when the dental pulp inside the tooth becomes infected. During this procedure, the gum tissue is opened, the infected pulp is removed, and the pulp chamber is treated, then filled and sealed.

Root canal therapy is recommended if you experience one or more of the symptoms below:

  • You feel severe pain when biting or chewing food
  • Your tooth feels sensitive to hot or cold temperatures
  • You notice swelling around the area where the tooth was extracted
  • You have an abscessed tooth

Nightguards

If you suffer from bruxism, wearing a nightguard may help reduce the risk of developing toothaches, jaw pain, facial pain, and other dental problems associated with clenching and grinding your teeth.

Nightguards are clear plastic trays that fit over your teeth and rest gently on top of them. The nightguard helps protect your teeth from the harmful effects of bruxism by acting as a barrier between your upper and lower teeth.
