Whitening Gel, which is activated by a specially designed light. Teeth typically become at least six to ten shades whiter, sometimes more. A five-minute fluoride treatment completes the procedure. You’ll be amazed with the results. In most cases, teeth get even whiter the first few days after the procedure.
Light activated gel was developed after years of research by Discus Dental, the leaders in professional take-home tooth whitening. The gel is a scientifically formulated, pH balanced Hydrogen Peroxide that, when activated by the Zoom! light, gently penetrates the teeth to remove deep stains and discoloration.

Inlays and onlays are restorative treatments to repair damaged posterior teeth with mild to moderate decay or teeth with cracks and fractures which are not extensive. They are labratory made materials and it takes two visits to finish them. They are much stronger than composite fillings & more conservative treatment of choice compared to crowns.
Periodontal disease is a chronic condition that can never be cured, only controlled. Control of periodontal disease depends upon good, effective, and daily homecare, as well as regular professional care.
Once treatment has been completed, a recommended schedule for regular cleanings (usually every three to four months) will be established.
Also called endodontic therapy
Each of our teeth contains a long, thin strand of dental pulp which is filled with a network of nerves and tissue. If the nerve dies and decays, the teeth can get infected resulting in abscesses that cause a great deal of pain and discomfort. To prevent this, we drill a gap into the tooth’s crown and pulp chamber, cleans out the infected pulp and permanently seals the tooth with a crown. The procedure can save teeth from eventually being lost or having to be removed and is often permanent.
With the latest technologies including the newest rotary instruments and anesthetics, root canal treatment does not need to be any more uncomfortable than having a filling placed.
Flexible partials are a quality premium product that offer comfort, esthetics, function and bio-compatibility. Flexible partials are made from a denture base resin that is non -allergenic, thin, lightweight, resilient and flexible.

Using a retento-grip tissue bearing technique for retention, flexible partials are easy to wear and easy to maintain.
Introduced in 1999, Invisalign offers an alternative to metal braces for straightening teeth. Using computer generated measurements to create a custom-made series of aligners created for each individual patient. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that the patient wears their teeth, similar to a sports mouthguard but much less intrusive and virtually unnoticeable.
Wearing the aligners gradually and gently shifts the patient’s teeth into place, based on the exact movements their dentist or orthodontist has planned. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. The patient just changes to a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until the treatment is complete.
The five benefits to using Invisalign over metal braces:
1. They are removable:
Invisalign aligners are designed to be removed easily to eat, drink, floss and brush. This allows the patient to practice great oral hygiene while still being treated. Metal braces are bonded to the teeth, offering more challenges when it comes to removing food particles and debris.
2. They are more comfortable
Traditional metal braces are uncomfortable and even painful. They also irritate the gum and cheeks. Invisalign is designed with soft plastic so they won’t harm the fragile tissue in the mouth. Also, because Invisalign is much less forceful during treatment than metal braces making pain and fatigue on the mouth much less likely.
3. They are cosmetically better
Instead of a mouth full of wire and metal, you have clear plastic trays surrounding your teeth which most people won’t even notice, even when you smile.
4. There are no food restrictions
There are limitations on what patients can eat or chew while in traditional metal braces (popcorn, chips, and gum). Those foods can loosen brackets and damage wires. Since Invisalign is removable, you can eat whatever you’d like then, after brushing, pop your aligner back in. The convenience of being able to remove your aligner means that you can eat whatever you’d like and not have to opt out of your favorite foods.
5. They are quicker and require much less visits to your dentist
Metal braces can take up to three years before they come off. Invisalign tends to take only a year to eighteen months with occasional visits to your dentist to monitor progress. Metal braces require a visit to the dentist every si weeks to check tension on wires and have them adjusted. You have all your aligners already at home and change them out yourself every two weeks.
It should be noted that while Invisalign is a great solution to straightening the teeth of many, not every patient is a good candidate for Invisalign over metal braces. In order to see what solution works best for you, consult with your dentist and go over the pros and cons of each.

Sleep apnea is a disorder characterized by abnormal pauses in breathing or incomplete breathing during sleep. It can affect both adults and children. Symptoms include daytime sleepiness, fatigue, impaired alertness, and vision problems. In some cases it can also lead to congestive heart failure, stroke, and carotid artery atherosclerosis.
In our office we are trained to perform an examination to determine if a patient suffers from sleep apnea. We can then educate the patient about this condition, explain different treatment options and also work closely with primary care physicians.
Treatment options vary depending on the severity of the condition. The most common method involves the use of a CPAP (Constant Positive Airway Pressure) machine and also OAT (Oral Appliance Therapy) which can be performed in our office.
Snoring is a vibration of the respiratory structures due to obstructed airflow during breathing while sleeping. Causes of snoring include weak throat musculature, jaw mal-positioning due to weak facial muscles, fat around the throat, nasal airway blockage, and obstructive sleep apnea.
Side effects include: sleep deprivation of those around the sufferer, day-time drowsiness, irritability, inability to focus, decreased libido, psychological and social damages to sufferers.
Treatment includes weight loss, smoking cessation, sleeping on one’s side, and the use of a snore guard to move the mandible forward. Snore guards can be done in our office.
Lasers can be used as a safe and effective treatment for a wide range of dental procedures and are often used in conjunction with other dental instruments. For example, remove inflamed gum tissues and aid in the treatment of gum disease, remove or reshape gum and bone tissues during crown lengthening procedure and much more…. in our office we use Biolase soft tissue laser unit.

It’s also designed to connect to restorative and orthodontic labs, third-party treatment planning, custom implant abutment, chairside milling, and lab CAD/CAM systems.
Dental cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is a special type of x-ray equipment we use when regular x-rays are not sufficient (facial or dental). It's helpful to produce 3D images of teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways, and bone in a single scan. A CBCT is used when the doctor needs to know how much bone a patient has, its density, and for a 3D representation of the jaw. It is mainly used for complex dental cases.
A panoramic x-ray is a two-dimensional image of your jaw that is taken to identify facial nerves, bone structure, and tooth orientation. It is usually used for common oral surgery procedures and for the planning of orthodontic cases.
