Our general dental services include the following:

  • Children’s Dentistry: We provide dental care for children that are too old to see a pediatric dentist. Services include dental sealants, exams, cleanings, and malocclusion evaluations.
  • Tooth-colored dental fillings: White dental fillings are available at our dental office for patients with cavities, tooth pain from old failing fillings, and tooth decay. White fillings consist of a compound that helps prevent further decay and protects the tooth from sensitivity.
  • Laser Dentistry: We are a modern dental practice that utilizes dental lasers to help us painlessly detect cavities, oral diseases, and more. We can also use dental lasers for teeth whitening procedures and gum disease treatments.
  • Preventative Dental Care: General and preventive dental care go hand-in-hand. We help you prevent future oral health issues from occurring by keeping you on a dental maintenance schedule. Addressing your dental health issues early is key to prevention. 
  • Root Canals: Tooth pain is a huge issue for most patients. There can be many reasons why, but the most common is an unaddressed tooth cavity that reaches the nerve. That’s where a root canal can make a difference. We provide root canal procedures to alleviate your tooth pain and repair the damaged tooth.
  • Teeth Cleaning: Regular brushing at home will never replace the need for professional dental cleanings. Professional dental cleanings are designed to address specific dental concerns, provide deep cleaning, and detect potential issues.
