Professional Cleanings

Dental Cleanings are vital to the long term health of your teeth. Our main focus in cleaning your teeth is to remove the harmful tarter that can help contribute to gum disease, bone loss, and eventually tooth loss. Our staff of expert hygienists are here to help you take care of these important visits.

Gum Disease Treatment

Gum Disease, or periodontal disease is a condition where the bone that supports your teeth is lost over time.  Gum disease is typically painless and many patients aren’t aware they have it until they are at the end stages of the disease.  Common signs or symptoms of end stage periodontal disease could be your teeth getting loose, or suddenly shifting.

Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy involves removing the nerve of the tooth in order to eliminate pain and limit future infections in the tooth. Although root canals have a bad reputation, they typically are much less painful than dental extractions and allow you to keep your tooth.
