General Dentistry Services for the Whole Family

Periodontal Care

Gum disease results from an accumulation of bacteria under the gum line. This disease leads to tooth loss, bad breath, receding gums, and a compromised jawbone. It has also been linked to serious systemic health conditions like heart disease and diabetes. We provide early diagnosis and treatment.

Preventive Dentistry

Regular at-home care and routine dental visits are the cornerstone of good oral health. During your biannual cleanings, your dentist will remove the oral bacteria, plaque, and tartar that can build up in spite of daily brushing and flossing, as well as look for early signs of any serious conditions.

Root Canal Therapy

If decay reaches the inner tooth, root canal therapy may be the only solution to save the outer structure. We can carefully remove all infected tissue and restore the tooth with a crown. Today's root canal therapies are virtually painless, especially when performed by our experienced dentists.

TMJ Disorder Treatment

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder occurs when the muscles and ligaments governing jaw movement become strained, or when the joint itself is damaged. After thorough diagnosis, we can develop a personalized treatment plan that may include oral appliances, oral splints, or BOTOX® Medical.
