General Dentistry includes:
to keep your teeth and mouth healthy.
to repair damage caused by tooth decay, periodontal disease and trauma to the teeth and surrounding tissues.
Cosmetic Dentistry is the art of full mouth rehabilitation and restoration to create the smile that you have always wanted.
Orthodontics is the application of braces and retainers to straighten and reposition your teeth. We utilize traditional braces as well as, clear aligners to build a healthy, beautiful smile and correct misalignments.
Orthodontics, or "braces", allows us to improve both your smile and your bite. We can usually predict misalignment of permanent teeth by age 7 and shift the baby teeth to allow permanent teeth to come in straight on their own. We can utilize traditional braces as well as, clear aligners. Whether you are an adult or an adolescent, we can realign your teeth to their proper position.
Ask us about Sleep Dentistry, a safe and effective way to treat all your dental needs while you sleep.
How to Handle Emergencies:
Permanent tooth knocked out intact: Replant tooth immediately, if possible. If contaminated, rinse with water before replanting.
DON'T SCRUB IT.
If immediate replantation is not possible, place tooth in milk or inside patient's mouth.
DON'T CLEAN IT
or you could destroy valuable tissue. There is a chance we can save the tooth if we see the patient soon enough, so call us immediately.
Broken or chipped tooth: Minor chips that do not expose the tooth's nerve do not require our immediate attention, although we should see the patient soon to determine how best to repair the tooth.
Severe breaks which expose the nerve are another matter: cover the tooth with a damp cloth and phone us immediately. If a nerve is exposed and you wait too long to see us, the nerve can become contaminated, die, and cause an abscess.
Lost a filling: Avoid chewing on that side of your mouth and avoid very hot or cold foods. If in pain, soft wax placed in the cavity may help. You'll want to come and see us to have the damage fully repaired.
Abscess and swelling: Do not apply heat or ice until you've consulted a dentist. Take ibuprofen, aspirin, or Tylenol and call us as soon as possible. In cases of severe swelling you may be advised to go to the emergency room.
Broken bridge or dental appliance: Save the broken parts and try not to chew on that side of your mouth. If rough edges are exposed, prevent damage to your tongue and cheek by covering the broken part with soft wax. And call as soon as you can.
Crown (cap) has come out: You will need to be seen within 1-3 days to be evaluated for recementation of the crown. In the meantime, keep the crown on the tooth, if it is stable enough, except when eating or sleeping (so as to avoid swallowing the crown).

Following your consultation, treatment options and fees will be explained in detail.
Preventative Care is essential for a life long healthy smile.
Regular cleanings and checkups are our way of keeping you informed of any dental problems that you may not be aware of.
Early detection and treatment will always be more conservative and less expensive.
Cosmetic Dentistry will allow you to achieve the smile you have always wanted. Rebuilding a smile is an art, and we love to show off.
With our conservative approach to replacing or repairing teeth, we can redesign your smile effectively and beautifully.
Surgery is yet another facet to the broad spectrum of services we provide including wisdom teeth removal. Our anesthetic techniques will ensure your comfort throughout the procedure. From cosmetics to extractions, we can perform most any procedure with this technique.
Interested in changing the color of your teeth? "ZOOM" Whitening (as seen on Extreme Makeover) is the best way to rejuvenate your smile and is our featured in-office whitening system.
