Gum Grafting

To perform gum grafting, we utilize AlloDerm®. AlloDerm is a gum grafting material that delivers predictable results every time. The main benefit of using AlloDerm is because it does not require the any additional surgical intervention.

Osseous Surgery

Otherwise known as flap surgery, osseous surgery is performed when periodontal pockets around the teeth have been unresponsive to other treatments. This is done to allow for the tooth to be retained instead of the tooth being lost. The goal of this treatment is to prevent pocketing around the teeth.

Common Questions We’re Asked About Dentistry


How much will my dental treatment cost?

Cost for dental treatments can vary from person to person depending on the treatment that you may need. When we recommend a specific treatment to you, we will discuss pricing on the treatment plan and explain the different financing options that fit your needs. We offer 3rd party financing and insurance options to fit most everyone’s financial needs.


What should I do if I have a dental emergency?

Our office gladly accepts walk-ins and emergency cases. Dental emergencies are of course unexpected and sometimes can be terrifying depending on the type of dental emergency. We treat emergencies from a persistent toothache to knocked-out tooth! If you are experiencing anything side from a dental emergency make sure to contact 911 to seek medical treatment.


How many times a year should I have my teeth cleaned?

We recommend coming in for your cleanings every six-months. In a perfect world, everyone would brush and floss twice a day. Overtime, plaque builds up and this sticky like bacterial film can solidify and turn into calculus or tartar. This cement-like substance is removed by the hygienist at your regular cleaning visits and prevents future complications and periodontal disease. This helps to not only keep your mouth healthy and clean, but it also allows potential problems to be found and diagnosed earlier.


What can I do about sensitive teeth?

We recommend sensitivity toothpaste, which contains strontium chloride or potassium nitrate are very effective in treating sensitive teeth. After a few weeks of use, you may notice a decrease in sensitivity. Highly acidic foods such as oranges, grapefruits and lemons, as well as tea and soda can increase tooth sensitivity, and work against sensitivity toothpaste. If you do not get relief by brushing gently and using desensitizing toothpaste, schedule an appointment with us so we can check-up on your oral health.


What can you do about my missing teeth?

In today’s dentistry there are many options that we can help to replace your missing tooth. If you’re missing a single tooth or a few right next to each other, we can restore them using a dental bridge. If your tooth loss is a little more extensive and you’re looking for a more permanent solution, we may suggest a dental implants. Both options offer a full smile solution that you can leave the same day with a beautiful smile.
