We use advanced technology including digital radiography and i-CAT™ Dental Cone Beam CT scans.

The information is stored digitally and can be viewed immediately.

    Dental Emergencies

    If discoloration, a chipped or misaligned tooth, or even small gaps between your teeth make you shy about your smile, porcelain veneers might be the way to set your mind at ease.

  • Root Canal Treatment

    The Basics Behind a Root Canal Sometimes, serious tooth decay can cause your tooth’s inner tissue, called the pulp, to become infected or exposed, which can cause significant dental pain and functional problems.

    What is sleep apnea? Sleep apnea is a condition where your breathing stops while you are asleep.
