Our other dental services include the following.
DENTAL CLEANINGS & REGULAR CHECKUPS
Regular dental checkups are an important part of maintaining optimal oral health. The first and most important is good home care – brushing and flossing. This is so important because it is the environment that your teeth are sitting in daily. If your mouth is dirty and full of plaque or food it is very harmful to both tissues and teeth. Secondly, regular dental cleanings and exams help to avoid tooth decay and gum disease and to prevent many expensive dental treatments
DENTISTRY FOR KIDS
TOOTH COLORED DENTAL FILLINGS
When decay gets down below the surface enamel and into the dentin of the tooth, we must remove the cavity (also called caries) and fill that space with a restorative material to preserve the tooth. Common filling materials are silver amalgam and composite resin ( tooth-colored dental fillings).

DENTURES AND PARTIALS
Dentures and Partials are prosthetic devices designed to replace missing teeth ( Some people call this a plate). Conventional dentures are removable; however, there are many different designs, some of which rely on bonding or clasping onto teeth or dental implants.
Bruxism is a condition in which you grind or clench your teeth. Some people are not even aware that they do this and may unconsciously clench their teeth together during the day or at night while they are sleeping. The evidence is often wearing on their teeth, headaches, and neck pain symptoms.
CUSTOM SPORTS MOUTHGUARDS
If you are an athlete, it is important to protect your teeth during both practices and games. Dental trauma occurs in 25% of children ages 7-14. While some of that injury is accidental, many injuries are sports-related. A mouthguard can help protect your teeth from being broken, displaced, or damaged and requiring years of costly maintenance and restoration.
