If you’re familiar with Newton’s Laws of Motion, you know the third states: “For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.” Similarly, for every dental problem, there is a solution. We see ourselves as facilitators happy to help you reach the resolution that will work for you. We want to ensure you recognize the beauty of your smile and the importance of its health, regardless of where you’re starting from. You don’t have to let fear keep you from reaching optimal oral health and a better quality of life. We’d be honored to show you this through kind, attentive, and personalized care.
If you had a great example set for you from a young age and were taught how to thoroughly brush, floss, and eat a diet that didn’t erode the enamel of your teeth and cause infection or decay, you might not need extensive dental work. We love to celebrate prevention victories and encourage you to keep up the excellent effort! If all you need is routine maintenance served with friendliness, we would be happy to be your dental home.
Some dental problems can evade even the most protective hygiene regimens—whether your enamel has experienced excessive acid erosion, you habitually clench your jaw or grind your teeth, or you were born with risk factors that increase your likelihood of having gum disease or tooth decay. Conditions like diabetes can also make inflammation harder to fight, which elevates your risk of oral infection. Don’t lose hope—we can restore the form and function of teeth in need.
There are many different factors that can cause teeth to weaken, break, loosen from their place to the point of loss, or require extraction and then replacement. You may think replacement isn’t important if the space is in the back of your mouth, or that your options aren’t within reach because they require some invasiveness and a large budget, but each of these concerns can be addressed and handled with care. You deserve a healthy, happy, complete smile.
We won’t deny there are legitimate reasons for people to feel anxious about visiting the dentist. However, we love telling patients about the ways we can help them face their fears and get the care they need or want. Sedation techniques have been used for centuries to calm people (sometimes to the point of feeling like they slept through their appointment) during medical or dental procedures. A safe method can be selected for you and make your visit feel like a breeze.
If you or a loved one don’t get the deep sleep you need because of chronic, loud snoring, you’re probably already aware of how severely it impacts your quality of life. During sleep, your body is going through healing processes and your brain is storing information (and maybe giving you some strange dreams), so if you’re sleep-deprived, it makes sense that your health would start to suffer. In fact, snoring could be a sign of Obstructive Sleep Apnea, which has the potential to be deadly. Seeking treatment could be life-saving.
The chances you’ll know you’re experiencing a dental emergency are fairly high because the symptoms are often visible or painful (sometimes exceedingly so). Unfortunately, emergency rooms aren’t prepared to handle urgent dental needs, so the sooner you can reach us, the better. With a thorough examination (which may include x-rays), we can find the source of your pain and go about treating it—it may be an obvious culprit, like a broken, cracked, or knocked out tooth, or it could be a persistent toothache. Whatever the case, we’re here to get you back on the right track!
