Your health is our first concern. We take pride in the fact that we are up-to-date on the most current treatment techniques.

  • All porcelain restorations Learn More

    All porcelain restorations are probably the closest thing to a natural tooth that you can get. Since there is no metal underneath the material, the restoration allows light to get into the tooth, go through the tooth and bounce off the tooth much like real tooth enamel. This makes the restoration look real.

    Porcelains are unmatched as aesthetic restorations, not only for their color, but also for their luster and translucence. Today’s porcelains are very advanced, durable materials, having more strength than their older predecessors.

  • E4D CAD-CAM System Learn More

    The E4D System makes it possible for us to create a restoration – right here in our office – that will match the shape of the adjacent teeth as well as add grooves and other anatomical detail to create a tooth with a natural look and feel.

    The E4D’s high speed digitized laser scanner takes multiple images of your tooth and wraps them together allowing the design center to create a 3D model.

    The system mills blocks of metal-free ceramic material into beautiful natural looking restorations in just minutes. These clinically proven materials ensure aesthetics, comfort and high strength.

    These restorations can be custom shaded and stained to precisely match the surrounding teeth. They are bonded into place so that the restored tooth ends up being almost as strong or stronger than the tooth was before it was restored.

  • Composite restorations Learn More

    Composite resins are non-metal, mercury-free, tooth-colored materials. These resins start out soft and putty-like. When exposed to a curing light, they polymerize and harden into a solid filling.

    The placement of composite requires meticulous attention to technique and procedure. Today's composites have low polymerization shrinkage and low coefficients of thermal shrinkage. A properly placed composite restoration is comfortable, aesthetically pleasing, strong and durable, and could last 10 years or more.

  • Snore and Sleep Apnea Appliances Learn More

    Snoring is the sound of partially obstructed breathing during sleep. While snoring can be harmless, it can also be the sign of a more serious medical condition known as Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). When you’re asleep, the muscles and soft tissues in your throat and mouth automatically relax. Your lower jaw and tongue drop back, decreasing or blocking your airway opening. A condition known as Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome (UARS), is midway between primary snoring and true obstructive sleep apnea.

    Snore and Sleep Apnea appliances are FDA-approved devices that are worn in the mouth during sleep. Their purpose is to promote adequate air intake by keeping the soft tissue from collapsing and interrupting normal breathing patterns- allowing you to breathe easily and continuously. Oral appliances may be used alone or in combination with other means of treating Obstructive Sleep Apnea, including general health and weight management, surgery or CPAP.

  • Diode Laser / Laser Bacterial Reduction Learn More

    Laser Bacterial Reduction is a process that uses new cutting edge laser technology. We feel it is an essential part of maintaining the high level of preventive care that our patients deserve.

    This laser procedure is painless and takes about 5-10 minutes.

    Benefits of Laser Bacterial Reduction (LBR) are as follows:

    1. Reduction of bacteria in periodontal pockets prior to the start of a cleaning- after a bacterial slide is taken- will prevent the release of harmful pathogens into the rest of the body. This release often takes place when there is infection present and/or bleeding during the cleaning. These bacteria can have a damaging effect if they settle in weakened areas of the body. The laser is much more effective and bio-compatible than antibiotics or irrigation. The laser actually reduces and eliminates the bacteria without negatively affecting the immune system.

    2. The use of the laser also prevents cross contamination from site to site during a cleaning.

    3. Biostimulation occurs when the laser is used. This is an exciting new concept that actually uses the energy from the laser to stimulate our body’s own immune system to initiate healing.

    Goals of Laser Bacterial Reduction are the elimination of the bacteria and enhanced healing. We hope you will consider this procedure at your next hygiene appointment. As always, we are constantly working to improve our service to you and to protect the health of not just your mouth, but your entire body.

  • Digital x-rays Learn More

  • 3D Cone Beam Imaging - The future of x-ray technology Learn More
    3D Cone Beam Imaging represents a quantum leap forward in diagnostic and treatment planning capabilities over conventional two-dimensional x-ray technology. It enables practitioners to better identify potential problems in implant/maxillo-facial surgical cases and periodontal situations as well as other potentially serious problems, including things such as airway passage obstructions and soft tissue abnormalities.The improved precision of Cone Beam 3D imaging allows for extraordinary accuracy, rapid scan time and reduced radiation dose while eliminating inaccuracies common with 2D imaging technology such as image distortion and magnification.
  • T.E.N.S. Therapy Learn More
    The TENS Unit has been used successfully for many years in the symptomatic relief of chronic pain. TENS relieves pain by sending small, electrical impulses through electrodes placed on the skin. TENS is a safe, non-invasive, drug-free, medically-proven method of pain management.
  • Night Guards and Orthotics Learn More

    Symptoms of TMJ disorder include jaw pain, limited jaw movement, an uneven bite, migraines, earaches, ear ringing, loud jaw clicking, dizziness, stiffness and pain in the jaw, neck, shoulders and back. These symptoms may be caused from clenching and grinding your teeth - Bruxism. Bruxing is one of the main causes of tooth wear and muscle fatigue.

    Night guards are custom-made oral appliances, generally worn at night, to help alleviate the symptoms of TMJ disorder due to bruxing.

    Symptoms of TMJ disorder may also be a result of a bad bite. A bad bite can cause the relationship of your jaw to your skull to be out of alignment.

    Neuromuscular Occlusal Orthotics are custom-made oral appliances specifically designed to restore balance to your mouth.

  • Bleaching Learn More

    Tooth whitening (or bleaching) is a simple, non-invasive process used to change the color of natural tooth enamel and is a great way to enhance the beauty of your smile.

    Since tooth whitening only works on natural tooth enamel, it is important to evaluate replacement of any old fillings, crowns, etc.

    Tooth whitening is not permanent. A touch-up may be needed every several years, and more often if you smoke, drink coffee, tea, or wine.
