The Isolite™ Dental Isolation System
This multi-function unit’s most important feature is suction that removes droplets and aerosols from the air during treatment. Additionally, its flexible mouthpiece provides an increased level of dental isolation and includes a light for improved illumination of the inside of your mouth. For comfort, there is a built-in bite block to assist you in keeping your mouth open. Isolite was designed to make your treatment quicker and easier, not only eliminating multiple hand instruments previously used by dentists and dental assistants but also shortening your time in the chair and in our office.
The Risks and Realities of Oral Cancer
One American dies every hour from oral cancer, and the mortality rate has remained virtually unchanged for 40 years. Early detection is so important, because it means a 90% cure rate. To help us ensure your complete oral health, we conduct oral cancer screenings at each visit. This screening could literally save your life!
Crooked teeth, worn teeth, fillings, gaps, chips, cracks, and discolorations – you name it, our cosmetic dentists can fix it! It’s no secret that our smiles have a huge effect on how others see us and how we feel about ourselves. Many patients tell us that they would love to fix their teeth, but they assume it will take something extreme to make it possible. They are thrilled to find out there are many conservative options for improvement. Ask us about dental veneers, bonding, dental crowns, and more. We also offer both in-office and take-home teeth whitening.
KöR™ Whitening – The Next Evolution in Teeth Whitening
Most teeth whitening methods work extremely well in competent professional hands; however, even the best treatments sometimes don’t work on severely stained teeth. An example of this is the staining you may have if you took the antibiotic tetracycline. But now, with KöR Whitening, even these severely stained teeth can go brilliantly white. If you’ve ever been disappointed in the results from other methods, you will be amazed at this technique. We also offer custom whitening trays, made in our own lab. You will receive supplies and instructions and you finish the procedure at home. This technique is safe and effective. Results occur within 1 – 14 days.
‘Smile Makeovers’ in as Little as Two Visits!
If you have misshapen teeth, unsightly gaps, or deep discoloration, our porcelain veneers may be the answer. Porcelain veneers are thin porcelain coverings that fit over and are bonded to your teeth, look natural, and are made from the most advanced dental ceramic available. We also feature Lumineers™. These are contact-lens thin and super translucent. Since Lumineers are so thin, little to no tooth reduction is necessary. Often times you won’t even need a shot!
Do You Find Yourself Falling Asleep on the Job?
If you or a loved one find yourself falling asleep during the day, or snoring loudly or having interrupted breathing during sleep, it may be you need sleep apnea treatment. This condition can lead to or contribute to serious health concerns. If you have been diagnosed and can’t tolerate or are frustrated with your CPAP machine, modern dentistry has new treatment options such as oral appliances. These appliances are small acrylic devices that fit over the upper and lower teeth similar to an orthodontic retainer or mouthguard. They gently realign your tongue and jaw to open your airway and allow more air flow to the lungs as you sleep and have been successful for over 90% of the patients who use them. If you snore or a physician has diagnosed you with sleep apnea, give us a call today.
Protect Your Teeth During Sports
Did you know that 5 million teeth are knocked out each year in the United States alone? Many sports can be dangerous without the proper protection. The one-size-fits-all mouthguards found in stores just don’t fit very well. Custom-made sports mouthguards fit well, protect well, and can be worn for any sport.
Tired of Dentures Slipping?
Dr. Graves can design and fit natural-looking dentures that won’t slip! This breakthrough involves fitting the denture plate so securely that you no longer have to worry about the foods you eat or that your dentures might shift or slip. If you are a denture wearer, be sure to ask us about this. It will make your life so much easier.
