Most people are apprehensive about dental treatment to some degree. Let us indulge you with comforts that will make the experience easier. We offer blankets, neck and back pillows, and television with access to Netflix, music, and t.v. shows.
If you are an existing patient and experiencing a true dental emergency during non-business hours, please call our office and follow the emergency protocol on our voicemail.
Routine Dental Examinations
At your initial dental exam, we start with a thorough head and neck exam and oral cancer screening. We check health histories, take blood pressure, check periodontal status, and chart existing and necessary treatment. We discuss which x-rays we would advise for you, and take those deemed appropriate. The type of cleaning for your dental situation will be discussed. Usually we are able to complete the cleaning at this first visit as well.
We may determine that your periodontal status dictates the need for more frequent or deeper cleanings. If so, we are able to make sure that you are treated at our office, or at the office of the periodontist that we recommend and work with closely.
We enjoy working with children and take pride in the many families in our practice that span three generations! We strive to make all of our patients comfortable, and especially want to make a child's first dental experience positive.
We provide a full range of restorative procedures, including composite or "white" fillings, crowns and bridges, and veneers, which are usually metal-free.
We coordinate the dental implant placement with our oral surgeons and periodontists, then the implant is restored with a crown and abutment right inside our office.
We enjoy doing veneers and whitening procedures, though we consider all of our restorative procedures "cosmetic." All procedures are done being mindful of the end result of creating a beautiful smile.
This would include a wide variety of procedures, from regular cleanings, to sealants, fluoride treatments, fabrication of night guards to prevent grinding and jaw problems, sports guards, etc.
As an additional service we also offer limited Invisalign treatment for cases that do not require an orthodontist's intervention. Invisalign is an orthodontic procedure that utilizes a series of clear plastic trays to straighten your teeth.
We always strive to make our patients feel comfortable and relaxed. We offer prescriptions for anti-anxiety medications to patients that need it. Patients must not be medically compromised and will need a responsible chaperone to drive them to and from the appointment. Additionally, for patients who experience mild to moderate anxiety with dental treatment, we offer nitrous oxide and oral sedation.
Sleep Apnea Devices
This is a great addition to a C-PAP machine or an alternative if the patient is unable to use a C-PAP. We are also trained to fabricate and fit snore guards.
