Prevention is the best treatment in dentistry. An exam can help to identify potential problems before they cause airway collapse or irreversible damage to your teeth or bone, infection, or pain. Our exam includes an oral cancer screening, a screening for dental-facial growth problems (begins with the Age 1 Dental Visit), and screening for periodontal and dental disease. Regular cleanings help to remove hardened calculus your toothbrush and floss can't clean. Remember, calculus harbors active bacterial colonies which can cause inflammation of the surrounding tissues of the teeth, leading to bone loss. (See Periodontal Treatment below)
Our team provides upper airway screening, development and management for both children and adults. We treat obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), snoring, jaw joint and muscle pain, and malocclusion (bad bite) using the FDA cleared mRNA or DNA oral appliances from Vivos Therapeutics in biomimetic oral appliance therapy (BOAT).
We use Vivos guides to help direct and improve craniofacial growth for developing children, so they may avoid more complicated orthodontic procedures in the future, resulting from overcrowding. Guiding proper growth instead of simply “moving teeth within bone” can even prevent or treat signs and symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea in children, including sleepiness, poor focus in school, ADHD, bedwetting, chronic ear infections and more.

Invisalign orthodontics uses clear aligner therapy to position the teeth in better esthetic and functional position within the alveolar arches.
A denture can be a beautiful and affordable treatment for a patient missing an entire arch of teeth.
Our dentist makes every effort to preserve your natural teeth. However, extractions are necessary when decay has made the tooth unsalvageable or when you have an advanced periodontal disease.
Used to prevent the spread of tooth decay or correct any cosmetic damage, a filling is one of the ways we work to preserve your health.
A dental implant mimics the form and function of a natural tooth. We can help you plan your implant restoration.
Excessive jaw clenching and bruxism can accelerate tooth and jaw deterioration. We create custom fitting guards for both nighttime use and use during athletic events.
Among the consideration for periodontal (gum) disease are irregular dental cleanings, genetic susceptibility, smoking, and other illnesses like diabetes. Periodontal treatment involves removing plaque and tartar from above and below the gum line.
Professional teeth whitening is faster, more effective, and longer lasting that treatments you find over the counter.
