More than just cleaning

Advanced procedures can range from wisdom tooth removal, to fitting you for the correct set of dentures. Regardless of the procedure, you can rest assured that we will make you as comfortable as possible, address any concerns you may have, and do our best to give you the most desirable results possible.

Comprehensive Implant Services

A dental implant is a permanent solution for a badly diseased or missing tooth. In the procedure, a titanium implant replaces the missing tooth roots, and a crown is attached to the implant. This process allows the implant to function, look and feel like a natural tooth. Implants require very low maintenance and do not decay or require root canals. We can often retrofit dentures to new implants to improve stability.

Wisdom Tooth Surgery

The removal of wisdom teeth is often necessary to prevent problems such as misalignment, overcrowding, disease and damage to surrounding teeth. During wisdom tooth extraction surgery, we thoroughly numb the affected area, open the gums and carefully remove the tooth.

Root Canals

When tooth decay extends beyond the enamel and into the nerves of the tooth (pulp chamber), a root canal is performed to save the infected tooth. During the painless and routine procedure, the infected nerves are removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed.


The main goal of modern dentistry today is the prevention of tooth loss. However, in some situations, once the examination, x-rays and history have been done, the dentist may find it in the best interest of the patient to extract the tooth.


When one or more teeth are missing, a dental bridge can be created as a restorative option to fill the gap. A bridge rebuilds a proper bite by placing an artificial tooth into the space, supported by crowns bonded to your surrounding teeth.

Oral Surgery

An oral surgeon is a dentist who specializes in the diagnoses, surgical treatment and management of injuries, disease and defects that involve the esthetic and functional aspects.


Dentures are removable substitutes for missing teeth and surrounding gums. We can create a complete set of custom dentures when all teeth are missing, or we can create partial dentures when some natural teeth remain in the mouth. Dental Implants are commonly used in conjunction with dentures to create increased stability.

Sleep Apnea

Both sleep apnea and snoring affect the way you breathe while sleeping. This can negatively affect your quality of sleep. In conjunction with your physician, we treat both sleep apnea and snoring by creating custom fit mouthpieces that reposition the jaw. These mouthpieces are only worn while you sleep to open the airway, resulting in better sleep and overall health.
