Most TMJ problems can be treated with the proper positioning of the jaw. This alters how the teeth come together to achieve a better bite position. Once a patient is comfortable in the trial bite treatment position, we can move forward with orthodontics, or making crowns to build the teeth to the stable TMJ position.

Implants are the treatment of choice for most cases of missing teeth. Our medical grade titanium implants are placed in office by a board certified periodontist. Once the implant is stable, we complete the restoration of the missing tooth with a crown.
We screen all of our patients for sleep breathing disorders. Sleep apnea is a huge problem in healthcare and Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) may be found in the dental office by signs that are apparent in the mouth. The treatment of choice for mild and moderate OSA is an oral appliance. We want to help you live a healthier, longer life.
The difference between traditional orthodontics and our treatment is the physiologic foundation. Rather than move the teeth where we think they look straight and expecting a patient to adapt, we first determine a stable bite through physiologic testing. We begin with a sleep study and follow with jaw tracking, EMG analysis of the muscles and 3D imaging of the teeth and jaw positions.
We have the top dental hygienists on staff to provide all the latest and best therapies for treating and preventing periodontal disease. It is our top priority to restore health to the tissues that support the teeth in order to prevent bone and tooth loss.
Lasers have many uses in healthcare. Our hygienists use periodontal laser therapy to reduce bacteria levels under the gums in order to prevent and treat gingival and periodontal disease
This revolutionary test identifies and measures the specific bacteria’s that contribute to a variety of gum diseases. Once the exact pathogens are identified, we can form a treatment plan for each patient based on our findings.
Arestin is a localized antibiotic used to treat the bacteria deep under the gums. Placing this antibiotic at the source of the infection will, in many cases, eliminate the need for systemic antibiotics. Arestin will also promote healing of the periodontal pocket, while encouraging gingival and bone regeneration.
Natural relaxation therapy NuCalm has been a fantastic system to help patients get through a dental appointment in a relaxed state. Within minutes of the application of NuCalm, your brain waves go to the same level as they do right before you fall asleep. It lowers sympathetic nervous system activity, which is your body’s response system to stress and the fight or flight response is diminished. NuCalm is the most safe and effective system without the side effects of sedatives.
