The Family Dentist offers a full array of dental services to help you maintain healthy teeth. You can read more on this page about specific services.
Initial Oral Examination
Your initial oral examination includes a visual examination, charting, periodontal probing, diagnosis and treatment recommendations. We will also take x-rays, which may include the panoramic x-ray for proper diagnosis of the anterior (front) and posterior (back) teeth as well as the bite-wing x-ray series for proper diagnosis of proximal decay of posterior teeth.
We will work with you to place and restore an implant for a missing single tooth, missing multiple teeth, or replace a removable appliance. Click here for more info
Our state-of-the-art, in-office Power Bleaching system will make your teeth whiter in less than 2 hours. Another option is our home bleaching system you take with you for results in 2 weeks. You can also consider a combination program of both systems for optimal, long-term results.
Crowns and Bridges and Veneers
You can have a new smile with all-porcelain crowns (empressed material) on the anterior teeth. For the posterior, we use porcelain fused to metal.
Tooth-colored filings that are light cures to match your teeth. Amalgam: Silver-colored filings, more durable material.
Root Canal Therapy
We perform root canals on anterior, premolar and molar teeth.
You should have a standard cleaning at least twice a year. A periodontal treatment includes an Adult Prophy (basic cleaning). If it has been over a year since your last cleaning, possible treatment will include either Periodontal Scaling (deeper) or Root Planning and Scaling (requires anesthetic).
If you grind your teeth while you sleep, a bite guard will help reduce symptoms of TMJ. These are known by many names; Occlusal Guards, Night Guards and Bite Splints may be recommended to you to alleviate the clenching and grinding of your teeth at night. Wearing a splint is helpful of you are waking up with headaches or soreness/tenderness in your jaw. Some people also experience tooth sensitivity when they are unconciously grinding their teeth at night. We custom make mouth guards in both soft and hard materials. We also can fabricate EMA Snore Devices to help open your airway when you sleep. Additionally, whether you are an athlete or casual sports participant, you should wear a mouth guard to protect your teeth
Removable Dental Prosthesis
For missing teeth, we can make dentures or removable partials for you.
