Dental Care in a Relaxing Environment

Even though we take great pride in being able to deliver painless injections, some people are naturally anxious at even the thought of a needle. If you or a loved one breaks into a cold sweat at the mention of the word “dentist,” we have a simple solution. We offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas). This is ideal for fearful people or those who have a busy schedule and want to get all their treatment done in one visit.

Intra-Oral Camera: See for Yourself

Dr. Graves works hand-in-hand with patients to create a bond of teamwork. One of the ways she bring this about is through the use of a high-tech tool, the Intra-Oral Camera. This amazing device is a miniature video camera that displays a close-up picture of the inside of your mouth. You can see for yourself what work needs to be done and which teeth are doing fine. You then become a participant in each dental decision. You'll love how this works!

Saving Hopeless Teeth

Teeth with roots that have been damaged or infected used to require extraction, which can cause a lot of problems and should be done as a last resort. When dental decay reaches the nerve of the tooth (or the tooth has become infected), a simple filling does not suffice. A root canal can save the tooth by removing the pulp of a tooth and replacing it with a filling material. Root canals of the past were quite painful and gained a reputation as something to be avoided. However, with today’s modern anesthetics and technology, we can perform root canals that are quite tolerable and often times even painless!

The Laser Scanner Finds Cavities Years Earlier

Our laser scanner can find even the smallest cavities that can be removed and repaired with an invisible bonded filling. Sometimes patients complain of tooth sensitivity, or mild to severe pain, yet X-rays and examination cannot pinpoint the source. Our laser scanner can detect previously undetected decay, and once identified, allow us to remove the discomfort and leave you with a healthy smile.

Beautiful Dentures for Confident Smiles

If you select dentures as a replacement for missing teeth, we can design and fit natural-looking dentures that won’t slip. Recent technology allows us to anchor a denture plate so securely that you no longer have to worry about the foods you eat and your slipping and shifting dentures. If you are already a denture wearer, we invite you to ask us about this procedure. It will make your life so much easier.
