Crown Lengthening is the process of exposing more of the tooth to prepare for a restoration. This is helpful in cases of fractures or cavities below the gumline that may not be accesible.
Extractions are used to remove a tooth that may have excessive decay, infection, or a severe fracture. This is usually done when the tooth is considered hopeless and there are no other treatment options.
Dental implants serve as a replacement for a missing tooth. Implants are the preferred method for tooth replacement. They are typically more succesful than bridges or dentures because they are more similar to a natural tooth.
Tissue Grafting, or Gum Grafting, can be completed to treat recession of the gums. Recession occurs when the gum line recedes towards the root of the tooth, sometimes exposing it and causing sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures.
Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure, or LANAP, is a fairly new method that treats gum disease. LANAP is less painful than traditional gum surgery and allows patients to return to their regular routine much quicker.
Many patients have anxiety when it comes to having dental work. We understand that this is stressful, and choose to offer our patients a variety of sedation techniques to ensure a comfortable experience.
