Oral Hygiene

Maintaining good oral hygiene is one of the most important things you can do for your teeth and gums. Healthy teeth not only enable you to look and feel good, they make it possible to eat and speak properly. Good oral health is important to your overall well-being.

During your visit to our hygienist, you will receive a professional dental cleaning to remove the buildup of plaque (a bacterial film that can cause decay) and tartar (hardened plaque). Your cleaning will include scaling (removing plaque and tartar by manual and electronic means), root planing (a process of cleaning pockets to treat and prevent gum problems) and polishing (finishing the surface of the teeth to make them shiny and clean). Regular professional cleanings help you maintain your beautiful smile.


Sealants are used to fill in narrow grooves in a tooth that cannot be adequately cleaned by brushing. In some cases, the tooth structure has fine grooves or pits which accumulate plaque which will develop cavities over time. We apply a coating that seals the grooves and pits, making it possible to prevent decay. We recommend that all children should have sealants.


A crown, also referred to as a cap, is used to entirely cover a damaged tooth. A crown not only strengthens a tooth, but it can dramatically improve a tooth’s appearance, shape and alignment. Crowns may be used to replace a large filling when there is little tooth structure remaining, restore a fractured tooth or protect a weak tooth from fracturing, or cover a tooth that has had root canal treatment.

It is our goal to offer advanced materials and techniques for your child’s teeth to ensure an esthetic finish and maximum protection from recurrent decay. Baby pictures and school photos are important to us too!


Good oral hygiene should always be practiced since the loss of a single tooth can have major impact upon your oral health and appearance. Although we will use every measure to prevent tooth loss, sometimes there are still necessary occasions when a tooth may need to be extracted. For example, a tooth may need to be extracted if the following occurs:

  • Severe decay
  • Advanced periodontal disease
  • Infection or abscess
  • Orthodontic correction
  • Malpositioned teeth
  • Fractured teeth or roots
  • Impacted teeth


Sometimes cavities happen. When a tooth is damaged by decay, a filling can help restore the tooth back to its normal function and shape. If you have a tooth that requires a filling, we will first remove the decay, clean the affected area, and then restore the tooth with a filling material. A filling also helps prevent further decay by closing off any cracks or spaces where bacteria can enter.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Nitrous oxide, also known as “laughing gas”, is commonly used to make treatment more comfortable. This sedation is inhaled through a mask that allows you to breathe in the medication and induces a state of relaxation. Local anesthetic will be administered in conjunction with nitrous oxide to eliminate pain.

I.V. Sedation

I.V. Sedation is recommended for apprehensive children, very young children, and children with special needs that do not work well under conscious sedation. Our dentist performs the dental treatment in our office with the child anesthetized under I.V. sedation, which is administered and monitored by an anesthesiologist.

Hospital Dentistry

Comprehensive dental rehabilitation under General Anesthesia is recommended for children with extensive decay, children who are too young to cooperate in the dental chair for routine care, and/or children with complex medical history or disabilities. Dentistry under General Anesthesia can only be performed by qualified, hospital-privileged dentists and an evaluation by a pediatrician is required. Hospital protocol for operating room admission is mandatory to ensure safety and controlled outcomes.

Bonding is performed to close spaces between your teeth, alter the alignment of your teeth, fill chipped teeth or for cosmetic purposes in order to help you achieve a stunning smile. Bonding involves adhering a composite resin material matched to the color of your tooth to the front of the tooth. A primer or bond agent is applied so the bonding material adheres to the surface. The composite resin material is placed on the tooth and hardened with a special light. Finally, the composite resin material is shaped and polished to a fabulous finish.


In order to provide nothing but the best to our patients, our office uses state-of-the-art technologies in all our procedures. These new technologies allow us to detect dental concerns at early stages, treat your dental issues with precision, and provide stunning and customized restorations. Our premium dental software system maximizes your time and our office efficiency. When you visit our office you can be confident that you are receiving the finest and most advanced in dental care.

Automated Appointment Reminders

Our office uses an automated system that is part of our dental software. The system is safe and HIPAA compliant. Through this system our patients receive appointment reminders two days before your scheduled appointment time either by e-mail or by text, whichever you prefer.

Digital X-rays

In our office we use digital radiography which allows us to take x-rays using up to 90% less radiation than conventional film x-rays. Using this technology, we are able to take an x-ray of your mouth by using a small sensor which records the image of your teeth and sends it to a computer. The result is a highly detailed image of your mouth that can easily be enhanced to better diagnosis dental concerns and determine the very best treatment for each case.
