    Implant Dentistry

    Dental implants aid in replacing a single tooth, several teeth or even all of your teeth. The implant itself looks like a screw or cylinder that is placed into the jaw. Over the 2-6 month period following the initial placement, the implant and jawbone bond together to provide an anchor for the crown. While your implant is in the healing period, an abutment is used to protect the tooth space and will eventually serve as the foundation for the implant crown.

    Gum Disease

    Gum disease (also called periodontal disease) is an infection of the tissues that support your teeth. It is a major cause of tooth loss in adults. Because gum disease is usually painless, you may not know you have it. At each regular checkup the dentist will measure the depth of the shallow v-shaped crevice (called a sulcus) between your tooth and gums to identify whether you have gum disease.

    Extractions and Root Canals

    There are times when it is necessary to remove a tooth. Sometimes a baby tooth has misshapen or long roots that prevent it from falling out as it should, and the tooth must be removed to make way for the permanent tooth to erupt. At other times, a tooth may have so much decay that it puts the surrounding teeth and jaw at risk of decay, so your doctor may recommend removal and replacement with a bridge or implant. Infection, orthodontic correction, or problems with a wisdom tooth can also require removal of a tooth.

    Everybody loves a bright white smile, and there are a variety of products and procedures available to help you improve the look of yours.

    Many people are satisfied with the sparkle they get from brushing twice daily with fluoride toothpaste, flossing once a day, and regular cleanings at the dentist’s office. However, if you decide you would like to go beyond regular care to make your smile look brighter, you should investigate all of your options.

    Pediatric Dentistry

    A child’s first visit to the dentist should be enjoyable and positive. The more you and your child know about the first visit, the better you will feel. Children are not born with a fear of the dentist, but they can fear the unknown. To ease these fears, our dentists and staff use simple, non-frightening, simple words to describe your child’s first dental visit and treatment. Following your child’s dental visit, he or she will be invited to select a prize from the treasure chest. We also provide children’s toothbrushes, toothpaste, and floss for your child to take home..
