Dental implants are surgical-grade root devices that support crowns, bridges or dentures- replacing a single tooth or an entire smile. Many dentists and patients prefer dental implants because they offer the same function as natural teeth and also help prevent bone loss.
We understand that dental phobias are real issues keeping countless people from receiving proper and consistent oral care. We offer sedation dentistry options to help make your visit to the dentist as comfortable and efficient as possible.
A root canal treatment is a procedure used to treat and preserve teeth that would otherwise be lost due to infection of the nerve. The organic portion of the tooth is then restored using a cap or crown that provides natural appearance and function.
Tooth extractions are routine dental procedures used to remove decayed, damaged or otherwise problematic teeth. We make every effort to preserve your natural teeth, however, sometimes an extraction is necessary.
A bone graft is a procedure designed to regenerate bone in areas where it is missing or insufficient. It is normally placed in areas where teeth have been lost, following an extraction or before implants or dentures.
TMJ refers to the temporomandibular joint, which is the bone structure, muscles and connective tissues which surround the jaw and control chewing. Disorders of the TMJ, also known as TMD, are often associated with stress, a misaligned bite (malocclusion), and teeth grinding (bruxism). Symptoms may include pain and tenderness near the jaw, as well as popping or clicking in the joint when speaking or chewing.Treatment can help eliminate your pain through properly aligning your jaw bone and muscles.
sleep apnea treatment
Sleep apnea, a potentially life-threatening disorder that occurs when breathing is interrupted during sleep, depriving your brain of oxygen. It's a serious condition which, if untreated increases your risk of heart disease, stroke, cancer and a myriad of other serious and life threatening illnesses. Many indicators can be identified during a routine dental examination. If diagnosed with sleep apnea, you may be a candidate for our oral appliance therapy program which will help ensure that the risks associated with this condition are reduced.
Mouth guards help protect from traumas such as grinding teeth during sleep or any sports-related impact on the field. They can also be used in the treatment of TMJ disorders. We custom-fit each set for your top and bottom teeth to maximize comfort and safety.
