Initial Oral Examination

Your initial oral examination includes a visual examination, charting, periodontal probing, diagnosis and treatment recommendations. We will also take x-rays, which may include a panoramic x-ray or full mouth series of x-rays for proper diagnosis of the anterior (front) and posterior (back) teeth as well as the bite-wing x-ray series for proper diagnosis of proximal decay of posterior teeth. Our new Sopralife intraoral camera allows us to take a video tour of your mouth!  Our Velscope cancer detection camera helps us catch oral lesions at earlier stages!

Dental Implants

We will work with an implant specialist to create an implant for a missing single tooth, missing multiple teeth, or replace a removable appliance. Imagine being able to get a brand new tooth in a few months time!

Teeth Bleaching

Our state-of-the-art, in-office Power Bleaching system that will make your teeth whiter faster than any other method. Another option is our home bleaching system that you take with you for results in 2 weeks. You can also consider a combination program of both systems for optimal, long-term results.

*Whitening 4 life gives you complimentry tooth whitening trays and gel at each of your regular preventive visits for a modest one time fee.

Crowns and Veneers

Are you tired of crooked or discolored front teeth? We can improve the beauty of your smile with veneers or porcelain crowns (no metal). Using the most advanced crown materials, we can create a beautiful healthy smile. These new Porcelain crowns have the advantage of eliminating tissue reaction to base metals in traditional crowns as well as avoiding the dreaded "dark lines" along the edge of old fashioned crowns.

Orthodontics

Have you always wanted straight teeth? Dr. Ed utilizes the latest technology and techniques he has developed over 25 years of providing orthodontic care. His treament philosophy is to create "beautiful faces using braces". Our patients often receive compliments on their smiles, and they report they are sleeping and breathing better...who would have thought??

Fillings: Resin/Composite

Tooth-colored fillings that are light cured to match your teeth and are mercury free. Wouldn't it be nice not to see those gray shadows in your back teeth?  

Periodontal Treatment

You should have a standard cleaning at least twice a year. Our periodontal treatment includes an Adult Prophy (basic cleaning). If it has been over a year since your last cleaning, it is possible that your treatment will include either Periodontal Scaling (deeper) or Root Planning and Scaling (requires anesthetic). Our hygenists can provide you with an Arestin (antibiotic)  treatment for your gums also. Research has shown that maintaining healthy gums goes a long way to improving your general health.

Mouth Guards

Whether you are an athlete or casual sports participant, you should wear a mouth guard to protect your teeth. If you grind your teeth while you sleep, a bite guard will help reduce symptoms of TMJ. We custom make mouth guards in both soft and hard materials. Grinding your teeth at night can be a sign of obstructive sleep apnea; we will check to see if you have any signs of apnea and offer you a great solution to that serious health problem.

Removable Dental Prosthesis

For missing teeth, we can make dentures or removable partials for you. A removable prosthesis (denture) is a great opportunity to restore function and a beautiful smile. Partial and complete dentures need to be replaced periodically to insure a scomfortable fit. Combining dentures with implants can give you a very secure answer to loose fitting dentures.

Pain/TMJ

Many people do not realize the range of symptoms caused by jaw dysfunction. We offer effective, conservative, non-invasive therapies to relieve your symptoms and correct structure/problems. We work with other professionals to help your body heal to the greatest extent possible. We can help you with your jaw related chronic pain issues.

Sleep Apnea Oral Appliances

Do you, or a loved one, snore or gasp for air while sleeping? This is a serious health concern. We will perform a detailed evaluation and make recommendations for treatment. CPAP is considered the "Gold Standard" for treating moderate or severe obstructive sleep apnea; the problem is that there is only a reported compliance of 25-40%. FDA approved oral appliances are approved for mild to moderate sleep apnea and are highly successful in addressing this condition. Some people with severe apnea have opted for Oral Appliance Therapy with great success.

VELscope

Early detection is the key!! Come in for your VELscope exam- it is fast and painless and could save your life!

This state of the art device uses reflected light technology to detect oral cancer lesions at early stages when it is most curable. Don't wait, come in for your oral cancer examination.
