Absolutely. Helping you have a truly relaxed dental appointment is one of our priorities, and we offer a wide array of comfort options including soft blankets, hot towels, headphones for movies or music during your procedure, longer appointments so you won’t feel rushed, and technology to make even the numbing injection painless. For those who need a little more help, we provide safe and effective conscious sedation.

Unlike traditional metal braces, which use metal brackets and wires to straighten your teeth, Invisalign uses clear plastic aligner trays. Our dentists design a treatment plan for you, and customized trays are produced at a special off-site lab. You wear each set of trays, which fit snugly over your teeth, for a few weeks before switching to the next set. Over time, the trays gently shift your teeth into place.

We recommend that your child sees one of our dentists for a dental exam every six months. We also suggest the same schedule for adults.

A dental implant is an option for tooth replacement that looks, feels, and functions like your own teeth. We can use implants to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or even an entire mouthful of teeth. We can even perform a special procedure called All-on-4®, which enables you to receive four dental implants and temporary teeth all in the same day! After the dental implants heal, you get your final replacement teeth.

Both the American Dental Association and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry suggest bringing your child for the first dental visit within six months of the appearance of their first tooth, and we agree! We’d like to see your child before their first birthday.

Dental implants offer several advantages over dental bridges. Unlike a dental bridge, dental implants do not require the modification of any healthy teeth. Because dental implants stimulate your jawbone in a way similar to your natural tooth roots, you won’t experience the loss in bone density that will occur over time with a dental bridge.
