Splints and Athletic Mouthguards:
Splints can be worn at night or during the day to help minimize damage
to the teeth caused by clenching and grinding. They can also be worn to
minimize or eliminate symptoms from TMJD (Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction)
and Myofascial (Facial) pain.
Approximately 50% of our patients have some form of dental anxiety. Our
office was designed, and our approach is tailored to the special needs
of anxious patients. Many patients elect to have some form of sedation,
even for their cleaning appointments.
Our sedation options include the following:
- Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)
- Oral Medications to minimize anxiety
- Oral Conscious Sedation: Oral medication that induces light sleep during
the dental appointment and the patient may have very little memory of
the visit afterwards

Periodontal (Gum) Care:
Scaling and Root Planing:
A deeper cleaning for patients with gum disease. Generally patients are
given local anesthetic (numbing) and the teeth are cleaned in the diseased
areas above and below the gumline to stop or slow the progression of gum
disease. The teeth are cleaned ultrasonically or with hand instruments
to remove build up and bacteria.
When there isn't enough tooth structure above the gumline to adequately
restore it with a crown, the gumline can be lowered slightly with either
laser or surgical reshaping to allow the tooth to be crowned.
Laser gingival recontouring (gumline reshaping):
If the gumline is lower than it should be or if your gumline is uneven,
a laser can be used to gently reshape and maximize esthetics.
Laser Assisted Pocket Reduction:
For patients with gum disease, diode laser treatments can reduce periodontal
(gum) pocket depth approximately 1mm per treatment. A thin laser is gently
placed below the gumline in the pockets for about 1 minute after scaling
and root planning to kill bacteria and promote revascularization (new
blood vessel growth) to the diseased areas.
Most teeth can be extracted in our office without the need for a referral
to a specialist. Approximately 50% of all 3rd molars (wisdom teeth) extraction
requires a referral to a specialist.
