We are especially sensitive to the overall physical health concerns that individuals should have about their oral health.

Most individuals are familiar with one aspect of what causes a cavity: bacteria from food. However, your overall lifestyle, health, and even genetics help determine how susceptible you are to getting cavities. Part of our oral examinations is assisting you in figuring out how best to avoid getting cavities in the first place.
Each appointment includes designated time for our dentist and dental hygienists to carefully examine the tissue of your mouth for signs of oral cancer or other ailments. From there, recommendations and treatments can be made if your oral tissue is found to have signs of these issues. Our network of health specialists can assist in finding the right treatment options for your condition. Come into our office to learn more about our oral examinations and possible treatment options.

Amalgam fillings contain a known toxin, mercury, and that slowly releases it into your body as it degrades. We offer safe alternatives with our dental materials that are free of harmful toxins. Some individuals may be especially sensitive to our restorative treatments. We offer sensitivity testing in our office to identify whether a patient is a proper candidate for this procedure. Schedule an appointment to see if you could benefit from our restorations.

Our patients’ needs are carefully considered before treatments are made, and the specific procedure taken depends on the severity of the patient’s gum health and their particular needs. Our dental professionals can examine your gums at your next scheduled appointment.
