The Crucial Care Your Smile Needs
New patients are welcome to come in for a yearly teeth cleaning, fluoride treatment, and examination-- including oral cancer screening. For complete cleaning, we have a periodontist on staff who can perform scaling and root planing, among other services; this will remove any tartar that has built up on your teeth and gums.
When your smile needs additional work beyond routine treatments, we’ve got you covered. Our state-of-the-art facility can create a range of restorative and cosmetic products as well, mainly to treat discoloration, chips, cracks, and misshapen teeth. We'll fit you with custom:
- Porcelain Veneers
- Dental Crowns
Our dental practice also creates custom dentures. These prosthetic devices stay permanently on your gums and keep your jawbone from deteriorating; since they are anchored by dental implants, you don’t have to worry about slippage and similar issues associated with dentures.
Comfortable Environment for All Procedures
Most people don’t look forward to seeing the dentist. We understand that dentist appointments can be nerve-wracking, which is why we strive to make you as comfortable as possible during all of our procedures. From fillings to teeth extractions, we work efficiently and use gentle methods so you can return to your normal routines as soon as possible.
Some of our most popular general and restorative dentistry procedures are fillings, bridges, and root canals. We offer tooth-colored fillings for any cavities so you can avoid the silvery look of amalgam fillings. In addition, we also recommend getting thin plastic sealants for your back teeth to help prevent tooth decay.
Our oral surgery specialists provide a wide range of procedures, with the most common being teeth extraction. These extractions are most often done for wisdom teeth removal, but we may also remove a few teeth in preparation for a bridge or partial denture. Talk to our team if you have any questions about what to expect before, during, or after any of our procedures.
A Visible, Convenient Location
Appointment scheduling is easy thanks to our conveniently located dental practice. Our office is easy to find, but you are also more than welcome to call us for directions if needed.
To ensure we treat as many patients as possible, we accept most major insurance carriers. If you're uninsured, don't worry because our office offers the Dental Alliance Discount Plan, which can give you access to free exams and X-rays, as well as discounts on certain treatments. We also set up flexible financing through CareCredit and Dental Alliance Financing.
Why Your Dental Health Matters
According to the National Center for Health Statistics, in 2016 approximately 35% of American adults surveyed had not had a general dentistry appointment within the past year. It’s a concerning number since routine dental appointments are one of the best things you can do for your body.
Your dental health has a major impact on your overall health, as well as your life. For example, if your teeth are not cleaned regularly, your gums may become inflamed due to plaque buildup. Numerous studies have linked oral inflammation to a higher risk of heart disease and stroke. Having your mouth examined regularly can help detect health conditions early on; the Academy of General Dentistry reports that more than 90% of systemic diseases produce oral warning signs.
Furthermore, you are also more confident in your everyday life when your dental health is good. You can smile easily without feeling self-conscious about issues like staining. Likewise, you won’t have trouble eating, drinking, or speaking due to oral pain.
