Comprehensive Dental Care

Dental Education

  • Cosmetics: Improvements of the appearance (though not necessarily the function) of a person's teeth, gums and/or bite.
  • Endodontics: Root canal therapy--concerns with the tooth pulp and the tissues surrounding the root of a tooth. If the pulp becomes diseased or injured, endodontic treatment is required to save the tooth.
  • Implantology: Artificial tooth root placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge in place.
  • Oral Surgery: Treatment of diseases, injuries and defects involving both the functional and esthetic aspects of the hard and soft tissues of the head, mouth, teeth, gums, jaws and neck. It involves, but is not limited to: dental implants, wisdom teeth removal, apicoectomy, TMJ disorder, facial trauma, corrective jaw surgery, oral pathology, osseous tissue surgery, anesthesia and bone grafts.
  • Orthodontics: Treatment of malocclusions (improper bites), which may be a result of tooth irregularity, disproportionate jaw relationships, or both. Orthodontic treatment can focus on dental displacement only, or can deal with the control and modification of facial growth.
  • Pediatrics: Dealing with children from birth through adolescence. It focuses on growth and development, disease causality, prevention, and places special importance in preventing tooth decay.It emphasizes on importance of developing healthy eating habits, making teeth strong, and other ways to prevent disease from occurring.
  • Periodontics: The Basics Of Gum Disease
    As the video below outlines, gum disease can be divided into three stages which can range from a simple amount of gum inflammation to major tissue damage and tooth loss. It's been said before, but as a reminder, the sooner periodontal disease is caught the more we can do to successfully reverse the affects.

  • Restorative: Diagnosis and integrated management of diseases of the teeth and their supporting structures and the rehabilitation of the dentition to functional and aesthetic requirements of the individual.
  • TMJ Therapy: Temporomandibular joint and muscle disorders (TMJ disorders) are problems or symptoms of the chewing muscles and joints that connect your lower jaw to your skull. Temporomandibular problems can usually be helped by conservative, noninvasive treatments.
