We know that you would rather not be driving around town for various dental specialty services. So at our office we have a convenient one-location care approach. It is just another way we show our patients how much we care for them!
We understand your concerns regarding the use of mercury fillings. Accordingly, at our office we have elected to only use advanced, new fillings made of tooth-colored materials that contain no metals or mercury. It’s just one more way that we show our care for you!
Root Canal Therapy
Did you know that each tooth contains a long, thin strand of dental pulp that provides the tooth with nutrients and nerves and extends down to the tooth’s root? If the pulp becomes infected or injured, the tooth’s nerves die and often, without endodontic treatment, the tooth dies as well. Root canals are designed to save such damaged teeth. During the procedure (performed under anesthesia), a gap is drilled into the tooth’s crown and pulp chamber, diseased pulp is reshaped or removed, and the tooth is permanently sealed with a gold, porcelain, or tooth-colored crown.
Dental implants are essentially permanent, attached teeth that replace dentures or partials and replace missing teeth.
A titanium implant is permanently attached to your jaw and a prosthetic tooth (crown) is attached to the implant. Implants require one or two outpatient or office surgeries and take from three to nine months to complete.
Periodontal (gum) disease can lead to more that just an unsightly smile – it can cause loss of teeth and eventually, if left untreated, serious health problems. Called gingivitis in its early stages, periodontal disease is caused by excessive toxic bacteria (found in plaque) that attack your mouth’s soft tissues. Early warning signs of this disease include red, swollen, bleeding gums. If caught early, we can help you reverse the damage. If detected late, we can use one of many effective cosmetic dentistry procedures to restore your mouth to a healthy, beautiful state. Let our periodontist help you keep your teeth and gums strong and disease-free with regular examinations and cleanings.

TMJ (Jaw Pain Therapy)
Commonly misdiagnosed or overlooked, subtle misalignments in the Temporomandibular joints can be a common significant source of head and neck pain. If you have frequent and severe head or neck pain you owe it to yourself to investigate our doctors life-changing approach to correcting these TMJ problems.
Fillings and Crowns
At our office, we offer traditional and tooth colored fillings. Tooth colored material can be used both as fillings and to repair defects in the teeth. Because they are tooth-colored, it is difficult to distinguish them from natural teeth. These fillings are often used on the front teeth where a natural appearance is important. They can be used on the back teeth as well depending on the location and extent of the tooth decay.
Crowns cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn't enough tooth left. It can be used to attach a bridge, protect a weak tooth from breaking or restore one that's already broken. A crown is a good way to cover teeth that are discolored or badly shaped. It's also used to cover a dental implant. A crown can make your tooth stronger and improve its appearance.
