Our Additional Dental Services

Occlusal adjustments modify the surfaces of certain teeth in order to create a more harmonious bite. Teeth that do not come together evenly can result in an overworking of the jaw joint and muscles in an attempt to find a balance. Adjusting the teeth helps reduce stress to these locations and lessens the prevalence or risk for teeth grinding and clenching.
Scaling and root planing non-surgically treats gum disease by “deep cleaning” the teeth above and below the gun line. Removing plaque and tartar buildup discourages infection-causing bacteria to sit in the spaces between the teeth. Scaling and root planing is often the first line of defense against gum disease.
A gingivectomy is a surgical procedure that removes portions of the gum tissue damaged by gum disease to reduce the depth of the periodontal pockets. Gummy smiles can also be corrected with a gingivectomy by a reduction and reshaping the gums around the teeth.
A filling restores tooth damaged by decay back to its normal function and shape. They also help prevent further decay by closing off any cracks or spaces where bacteria can enter. Composite (plastic) resins are custom made to the exact color of your natural teeth, creating a more natural appearance.
Inlays and onlays, or porcelain fillings, cover over large cavities, defects, or chips on a tooth. They are matched to the color of the tooth, custom created in a lab, and then bonded to the tooth. A porcelain restoration generally covers most of the tooth, making the filling nearly undetectable.
Root canals treat and restore teeth with severe infections of the pulp inside the tooth root. Designed to preserve the integrity of natural teeth, root canals remove the infection by clearing away the pulp and replacing it with a biocompatible material. Teeth are commonly restored with dental crowns.
Dental emergencies often happen when least expected. For emergencies not requiring immediate medical attention, such as broken restorations or severe tooth pain, we provide emergency dentistry services. Our emergency line is open to anyone who calls, and patients will be seen as soon as possible.
