Endodontics (Root Canals)
Dental implant placement is today's cutting edge dental technique performed to permanantly replace missing teeth. A dental implant is a small biocompatible post surgically placed in the jawbone, which acts as a new root for the tooth. Within a few months, the post begins to fuse with the bone and a replacement tooth is then fixed to the post. In the case of multiple implants, several can be placed strategically to support a bridge or dentures. We will perform the surgical placement of the dental implant, later attach a custom-made titanium abutment and finally cover it with a custom-made crown, bridge or denture. Patients feel comfortable knowing that we perform all the work here in our office, from start to finish.
Our office utilizes a brand new KAVO 3D CT/Cone Beam scanning machine to help determine if a patient has sufficient bone for an implant placement and to dictate the exact location to place implants. We can easily assess if you are a candidate for dental implants and if so, we will confidently restore you with the beautiful smile you deserve.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea, the most common sleep disorder, causes the muscles in the back of a person's throat to relax and his airway to narrow or close. This means that the person repeatedly stops and starts breathing throughout his sleep. A single event can last for 10 to 20 seconds and the typical sufferer experiences hundreds of these events each night. While the brain usually senses the impairment and briefly rouses the person, often people are unaware of their sleep being interrupted.
The results of this disorder range from excessive daytime fatigue and energy loss to an increased risk of heart failure and stroke. While 18% of men and 8% of women between the ages of 30-70 suffer from some form of sleep apnea, fewer than 10% of sufferers have even been diagnosed.
Certain factors increase a person's risk for sleep apnea including excessive weight, smoking, diabetes, asthma and hypertension. However, anyone can develop the disorder. If you notice symptoms such as loud snoring, drowsiness or an inability to concentrate during the day, abrupt waking during the night, morning headaches or a dry mouth, high blood pressure or if someone notices you stop breathing during sleep, you should be tested for sleep apnea.
Obstructive sleep apnea is potentially life-threatening. Fortunately, modern dental technology now affords an alternative for patients with mild or moderate obstructive sleep apnea who find it difficult to use the CPAP machine at home. To keep your throat open, an oral appliance brings your mouth into the proper position to allow oxygen to enter your body and to relieve snoring. Ask us about our at-home sleep test to begin the process of diagnosing your possible sleep apnea and fabrication of your medically insured oral appliance.
Invisalign treatment is an almost invisible option to straighten your teeth using aligners instead of traditional metal braces. Following a consultation, oral exam, impressions and x-rays, Invisalign fabricates a custom-made series of aligners for each patient. Patients wear each set of removable, clear and comfortable aligners for approximately two weeks, removing them to eat, drink, floss and brush. Slowly and gently, the patient’s teeth shift until they reach their final, straightened position. The average case is completed between 8 and 12 months. Our patients have expressed their appreciation of feeling confident in public while seeing their smiles improve before their eyes. If you are seeking a cutting-edge, virtually invisible alternative to braces, ask us if Invisalign is right for you.
