Sedation Dentistry

patient sedation

We offer nitrous oxide sedation to patients who are nervous or have difficulty sitting through a dental procedure. This sedation provides a relaxed, comfortable feeling and wears off quickly, enabling the patient to drive home and return to their usual activities.

Digital Dentistry

Cone Beam Technology

We provide advanced digital diagnostic techniques, including our CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography) 3D scanner. The CBCT scanner allows for computer-guided dental treatments, increasing accuracy and improving outcomes.

Dental Cleaning

Dental Cleaning

A dental cleaning, also known as an oral prophylaxis, is the removal of dental plaque and tartar (calculus) from the teeth. Specialized instruments are used to gently remove these deposits without harming the teeth. First, an ultrasonic device that emits vibrations and is cooled by water is used to loosen larger pieces of tartar. Next, hand tools are used to manually remove smaller deposits and smooth the tooth surfaces. Once all the tooth surfaces have been cleaned of tartar and plaque, the teeth are polished.

Dental Sealants

Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are made of a safe resin material which is applied to the surfaces of teeth (commonly permanent molars) to prevent cavities. The sealant material fills in the crevices of a tooth and “seals” off the tooth from cavity-causing agents like food and plaque. The teeth are prepared for the sealant application and the sealant is painted directly onto the chewing surface of each tooth and then hardens. Sealants are applied in one visit.

Fluoride Treatment

Flouride Treatment

Fluoride is a natural substance that helps strengthen teeth and prevent decay. Fluoride treatments are administered at this office as an important component of pediatric dental treatment. The fluoride is applied to the teeth in a gel, foam, or varnish form.

Custom Oral Appliances

Custom Oral Appliances

Our office can fabricate custom oral appliances that can protect your teeth and gums during sports, alleviate sleep apnea symptoms to provide an open airway while you sleep, or relieve stress on the temporomandibular joint caused by clenching or grinding of the teeth.

Scaling and Root Planing

Scaling and Root Planning
Scaling and root planing is a non-surgical procedure used to treat gum disease. During the scaling process, specialized dental instruments are used to remove dental plaque and calculus from beneath the gums. Planing is the procedure used to smooth the tooth roots after the scaling process. Root planing helps the gums heal and reattach themselves to a cleaner and smoother root surface.

Root Canal Treatment

Root Canal Treatment

When the pulp inside a tooth becomes infected due to decay or dental trauma, you may experience a toothache. A root canal removes the inflamed tissue inside the tooth and treats the infection, relieving your pain. In many cases, a root canal can also save a tooth from extraction.



A tooth that can not be saved with restorative procedures may need to be removed. Before removal of the tooth, the area will be numbed with anesthesia. The tooth is loosened from the jawbone and surrounding ligaments and tissues with a gentle rocking motion. Once it is loose, it is gently removed. Stitches may be necessary after the removal of a tooth.

Frequently Asked Questions About General Dentistry

Why are cleanings and exams necessary twice each year?
Removing built-up plaque and tartar twice a year protects your teeth from decay and gum disease. When combined with a solid home care routine with proper brushing and flossing, twice-annual visits support oral health.
Are root canals painful?
Today, root canals are pain-free thanks to local anesthesia. Most patients report that root canals are no more uncomfortable than getting a filling. If you are nervous about the procedure, we offer nitrous oxide sedation.
How does the CBCT scanner work?
The CBCT scanner rotates around your head, using a cone-shaped X-ray to collect data and create a 3-D image of your teeth. The dentist can use this detailed image to pinpoint emerging problems and plan surgeries like dental implant procedures.
