Digital radiography - Digital x-rays are new technology in the dental field, providing 85% less radiation than traditional radiography. The results are immediately sent to a computer screen which allows us to provide a more efficient diagnosis, to show you, the patient, what is wrong, and to explain what we need to do fix the problem.

Filling - We provide both amalgam (silver) and composite (tooth colored) fillings, which are designed to fully restore a tooth to its original shape and function after a space has been created by decay or wear.

Crown - A protective cap which is used when there is not enough tooth structure to support a filling. Crowns can be made of many different materials, gold and porcelain being the most common types.

Bridge - More than one crown bonded together to fill in a space where several teeth are missing. Bridges are also most commonly made with gold and porcelain.

Root Canal Therapy - A dental procedure through which damaged/diseased soft tissue is removed from the interior of a tooth, and replaced with a permanent filling and capped with a dental crown.

Night Guard - A plastic dental appliance, which is used to inhibit the grinding or clenching of teeth at night; often easing tension in the jaw muscles.

Nitrous Oxide - (For our nervous patients ) Also referred to as 'laughing gas,' is a commonly used dental sedative and when used conjunction with local anesthetics, it can significantly numb a dental patient's sensitivity to pain.

Custom Bleaching - We will make you a custom bleaching tray and provide you with a whitening treatment which lightens and whitens teeth.

Dental implant An artificial root form positioned under the gums to replace a missing tooth or teeth. The dental implant can also be used to stabilize a full denture. The implants are commonly made of titanium and have a good track record of success.
