After all, a healthy smile is one of the best ways to feel confident in yourself. We provide our patients with a full range of services that will meet all of your dental health care needs.

Regardless of your dental needs, we are ready to welcome you and to ensure your comfort throughout any treatment that you receive from us. At your first comprehensive dental exam, your dentist will take a look at your teeth, gums and mouth. This will help the dentist to catch any of the following issues:
• Tooth decay
• Teeth grinding
• Oral cancer
• Bone loss
• Advanced gum disease/periodontal disease
By looking for these issues, your dentist will be able to establish a baseline for your oral health. From there, we will work to treat any issues that you have and to help your teeth, gums and mouth become healthy again. We promise to always treat you with compassion and to always provide the highest quality of care. This is why several of our patients return to us to continue their dental health care. If you want to be one of the many people in our area who have put their trust in our dentists, give us a call to schedule your first visit with one of our friendly dentists.
The best way to ensure that your teeth are being properly cleaned is to receive a thorough professional cleaning on a regular basis. In fact, this is one of the main reasons that our patients come into our office. A professional cleaning removes built-up plaque and calculus that can’t be reached via brushing and flossing the teeth. Are you wondering just what plaque is? Plaque is a film comprised of bacteria that forms on the teeth after you eat and drink. Brushing and flossing usually keep plaque from building up. However, a failure to maintain your dental health can lead to the plaque turning into a hard material known as calculus. This calculus will tear down the enamel of the teeth and cause your teeth to decay, leading to cavities, loose teeth and other problems. Our dentists will thoroughly clean your teeth so that the plaque and calculus can no longer build up and cause you problems.
Did you know that the very same bacteria that live within plaque and calculus cause gingivitis? Also known as the early stages of gum disease, gingivitis is characterized by red, sensitive, or swollen gums that bleed during brushing and flossing. If you have these symptoms, you should seek out gum disease treatment before the disease progresses into its advanced stages. The advanced stage of gum disease is known as periodontal disease. This disease can lead to you losing several or all of your teeth. It can also lead to bone loss. To avoid long-term problems with your dental health, you should seek out treatment for your gum disease immediately.
Is chronic bad breath causing you embarrassment and leading you to lose your confidence? Bad breath, medically known as halitosis, is a condition that impacts over 25 percent of people in the United States of America. The underlying causes can range from something you ate to a lack of proper oral hygiene to tooth decay. Our dentists are experienced in eliminating halitosis so that you no longer have to worry about bad breath ruining your day. We will prescribe you specialized treatments, give at-home hygiene recommendations and schedule routine cleanings that will allow you to get your halitosis under control.
Receiving an oral cancer screening at your dental exam is a highly effective means of detecting oral cancer in its earliest stages. Oral cancer is a deadly disease that usually does not show any symptoms early on. Therefore, it is imperative that you have a professional look at your mouth to determine if there are any signs of cancer. Detecting oral cancer early means that you have a higher chance of being cured of the disease. If you are over the age of 18, your dentist will perform this essential test during your visit.
