Increasing evidence in both dental and medical literature has shown a link between gingivitis/periodontitis (gum disease) and general health problems (for instance-heart disease and diabetes). We are fortunate enough to have two hygienists in our office that have many years of experience in periodontal (gum) therapy as well as preventative care. They are excited about dentistry and are committed to educating each patient on the benefits of optimal oral health and dental care. They use the latest in diagnostic and educational tool to evaluate your oral health and to teach you the best way to have healthy teeth and gums. Appointments are not rushed so they can take their time and get to know you and answer any questions you may have.
Initial Oral Examination
Your initial oral examination includes a visual examination, charting, periodontal probing, diagnosis and treatment recommendations. We will also take x-rays, which includes the panoramic x-ray for proper diagnosis of the anterior (front) and posterior (back) teeth as well as the bite-wing x-ray series for proper diagnosis of proximal decay of posterior teeth.
Implants are synthetic structures that are placed in the area of the tooth normally occupied by the root. Implants are anchored to the jawbone or metal framework on the bone and act as a foundation for an artificial tooth or permanent bridge. In some cases, implants can be used to attach dentures.

Crowns and Bridges
Crowns are synthetic caps, usually made of a material like porcelain, placed on the top of a tooth. Crowns are typically used to restore a tooth's function and appearance following a restorative procedure such as a root canal. When decay in a tooth has become so advanced that large portions of the tooth must be removed, crowns are often used to restore the tooth. Read More...
