Protect your teeth from cavities with dental fillings from our practice. We provide tooth colored fillings using laser dentistry.
Laser dentistry is necessary for decay removal, cavity preparations, bonding, and smile design. With laser dentistry, there are no drills, shots, or needles, and in most cases, the procedure is pain free. We get many referrals because of laser dentistry.
To save and repair a tooth that is badly decayed or infected, we provide root canal therapy. During this procedure, we remove the nerve, decay, and bacteria from the inside of the tooth, after which we clean and fill it.
When necessary, we also perform oral surgery. Oral surgeries are provided for removal of wisdom teeth, broken, and cracked teeth. Biopsies are also available.
IV sedation and Nitrous Oxide
IV sedation includes a painless injection that your we insert into your arm. Quickly after the injection, you’ll start to feel calm. The IV lets our staff modify your sedation levels throughout the procedure so you’re never in risk of becoming the victim of those old dental fears. You won’t be unconscious, so you can still speak with our staff, but you’ll be very comfortable for the entire period you’re being treated.
Nitrous oxide is a colorless, odorless gas that is otherwise known as “laughing gas.” While it might not make you break out into hysterics, it will induce a feeling of well-being as soon as you start to breathe it in. Our staff will administer it through a nasal mask. Within minutes after the mask is removed, you’ll get back to feeling normal. You’ll even be able to drive yourself home from your appointment.
