OUR PAIN-FREE DENTAL SERVICES

IV Sedation, Conscious Sedation, and Oral Sedation

We have dentists certified to deliver various levels of anesthesia and sedation, which means we can provide the best pain management for your dental procedures and surgeries. This is normally when other dentists would refer you to other providers.

Treatment Of Periodontal Disease (Gum Disease)

Plaque and tartar can build up to create periodontitis, or gum disease. If identified, you may require nonsurgical or surgical treatments that our dentists and hygienists can perform in-house.

Comprehensive Examinations

Oral health goes beyond your teeth and gums. Our staff is trained to ask the right questions and identify issues early on so you can get the best treatment plan.

Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy, or endodontic therapy, is a procedure that can ease your oral pain tremendously by removing the nerves of your problem tooth. With gentle sedation options available, we offer a painless experience.

Oral Cancer Screening

Signs of mouth and throat cancer may not be obvious to you. We are trained to identify, address, and treat signs of oral cancer as early as possible.

Cleaning And Fluoride Treatment

Our hygienists conduct a deep clean and fluoride treatment to get plaque and buildup that regular brushing doesn’t get.

Oral Surgery Procedures (Extractions)

You won’t have to go to a different specialist to undergo your oral surgery procedures, such as tooth extractions. Our dentists are qualified to perform these surgeries with pain-free sedation right in our office.

Implant Restorations

After having a dental implant placed by a qualified oral surgeon, we will perform the restorative portion of the procedure by placing a new crown on top of the dental implant.

Full Range of Restorative Services (Fillings)

If your oral exam shows signs of cavities or gum issues, we can address them in a timely manner. We provide all common dental filling options, including tooth-colored and silver.

Dentures And Partial Dentures

Dentures can be a very affordable option for replacing your missing teeth. We have years of experience in making comfortable removable dentures.

Dentistry For Children, Adolescents and Disabled

Our staff is accommodating to patients of all ages and abilities. We will do everything to make your family’s experience as enjoyable and comfortable as possible.

Crown And Bridge Restorations

A crown is a “cap” that is placed on your tooth to protect it or in some cases to give you the appearance that you desire. A bridge is an appliance that is fixed in place and replaces a missing tooth.
