Implants are the perfect solution for one tooth or many! Dental implants are the ideal way to replace a lost tooth. Unlike bridges or removable dentures, which sit on top of the gums, dental implants are root replacements. The “tooth” placed on an implant appears life-like, because it is anchored in the mouth just like the original was. It’s like growing a new tooth!
Implants can be used to replace any number of lost teeth. Even people with no teeth can benefit from implants because they can replace their dentures with teeth that are solid enough to eat any food, don’t move around when they talk, and don’t need to be taken out at night. Implants can also be used to anchor dentures or removable partials firmly. Enjoy all your favorite foods again!
The only NON-DRUG treatment approved by the FDA specifically for prevention of migraines is now available at our practice.

Laser Cavity Detection
It’s no secret that our smiles have a huge effect on how others see us, and how we feel about ourselves. Few things are more uncomfortable than watching a person self-consciously conceal a smile behind his or her hand. Many patients tell us that they would love to fix their smile, but they assume it will take something extreme – like they see on TV – to make it possible. These patients are thrilled to find out there are many options to improve their smiles.
Crooked teeth, worn teeth, fillings, gaps, chips, cracks and discolorations – you name it, we can fix it!

You may have seen the latest news about orthodontics on TV. It’s called Invisalign. Now you can have straight teeth in an average of 9-15 months instead of the 2 to 4 YEARS with traditional braces. The best part is that with the Invisalign system there are NO metal wires or brackets.
Your teeth are comfortably straightened with nearly invisible plastic trays which are removable for easy brushing and flossing. You can barely see them! We also offer MLM, a lower cost solution like Invisalign as an in-office treatment. Make an appointment to find out which straightening solution works for you!
