During an oral examination, a visual inspection is performed to detect normal and abnormal structures of the entire mouth, head and neck. Along with radiographs, an examination detects cavities, abnormalities in existing dental restorations, gum and bone recession and any other abnormal findings within the mouth, head and neck.
A dental Implant is a titanium (biocompatible) component placed in the bone of the jaw to act as the root replacement and provide permanent support for the final crown or bridge.
Invisalign® is a virtually invisible hygienic treatment which uses an innovative approach to effectively incrementally straighten your teeth.

The treatment uses a series of custom-made​ aligners made of clear plastic that fit over your teeth to gradually move them into ideal position.

BOTOX® is a purified neurotoxin used in therapeutic and cosmetic​ treatments for patients suffering with TMJ issues, jaw pain, and grinding.

BOTOX® is a non-surgical procedure performed to alleviate muscle tension in these areas.

Cosmetically the material is used to reduce lines on the forehead between the eyebrows and crow feet area.

Dermal Fillers use a smooth gel to instantly smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose. With just one treatment, you’ll get smooth and natural-looking results that can last up to a year.
Veneers are thin layers of porcelain bonded to your teeth to cosmetically enhance the esthetics of your teeth.

Minimal tooth structure is removed and the veneer is bonded to your tooth with strong resin cement. This procedure generally takes two visits.

Crowns are full coverage restorations that reinforce a tooth that has become compromised by fracture or decay. The first visit is to prepare the tooth, and the second is to insert the final restoration.

A bridge is a fixed dental restoration used to replace a missing tooth or teeth.

Unlike removable devices such as dentures which you take out daily, bridges are permanently cemented to adjacent existing teeth with a pontic (artificial tooth) replacing the missing tooth/teeth. A bridge can only be removed by a dentist.

A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth. There are two types of dentures, complete (full) and partial dentures.

Complete (Full) Dentures are made after all the teeth in the upper and/or lower jaw have been removed and the gum tissue has healed. The denture includes an acrylic base that is custom made in the dental laboratory and are made to look like natural gums, which sits over the gums or can be anchored to dental implants.

Removeable Partial Dentures are made only when a few teeth need to be replaced. The removable partial denture either attaches to crowns on either side of the denture or to a metal framework that is attached to the teeth on both sides of the partial denture. Partial dentures can be removable or they can be anchored in place by attaching them to dental implants. Removable partial dentures can be supported in place by attaching them to dental implants when wearing them during the day.

Whitening, also known as bleaching, is the procedure used to brighten teeth.

Whitening requires an impression of the teeth to be taken to make customized whitening gel, containing, carbide peroxide, against the teeth.

Once the trays are made, it is worn for a designated period of time, as instructed by our office.

Composite fillings are tooth-colored restorative material.

After being applied to the tooth the material is hardened with a curing light.

Composite fillings give a more natural appearance to the tooth and because of the bonding capabilities they give added strength to the tooth.

Laser treatments are minimally invasive ways to reshape tissue, eliminate pockets of infected gum tissue, remove soft tissue lesions and treat aphthous ulcers (cankersores) by shortening the duration and intensity of the lesion.

Root canals are most often necessary when decay has reached the nerve of the tooth or the tooth has become infected. When root canal therapy is performed, infected or inflamed pulp is removed from the tooth chamber. The inside of the tooth is then cleaned and disinfected before filling and sealing to limit the possibility of future infection. Soon after the root canal is performed, the tooth is restored with a buildup and dental crown or filling to protect the tooth and restore normal tooth function.

Oral Appliance Therapy (OAT) is often an effective alternative to CPAP for patients suffering from obstructive sleep apnea. With this approach, our office creates a custom-fitted oral appliance for patients to wear when they are sleeping. The appliance aids patients during sleep by positioning the lower jaw and tongue in a way that minimizes airway obstruction.
