Commonly Asked Questions
We do whatever we can to minimize pain and discomfort because we want every visit with us to be as stress-free as possible. We offer oral sedation as an option for patients who want to be more relaxed and comfortable throughout their visit.
We recommend coming in to see us for a checkup and cleaning at least twice a year—usually once every six months. A dental cleaning and checkup visit allows us to:
- Monitor the health of your teeth and gums
- Perform a comprehensive exam
- Conduct an oral cancer screening
- Thoroughly clean and polish the teeth
- Check for signs of gum disease
- Whiten your smile (if needed)
You may have periodontal disease if you have bleeding, puffy, or swollen gums, or you notice your teeth are becoming loose. Persistent bad breath is another sign of gum disease. We offer periodontal services including scaling and root planing therapy to clear the gums of any infection.
Our general or cosmetic dentist can perform tooth restoration procedures to repair and strengthen damaged teeth. We are the only provider of CEREC® same-day crowns in the area and can customize a tooth restoration solution with lasting results.
We offer dentures and dental implant restorations at our practice. Both treatment options can help to restore the functioning and aesthetics of your smile.
