Initial Oral Examination
Your initial oral examination includes a visual examination, charting, periodontal probing, diagnosis and treatment recommendations. We will also take x-rays, which includes the panoramic x-ray for proper diagnosis of the anterior (front) and posterior (back) teeth as well as the bite-wing x-ray series for proper diagnosis of proximal decay of posterior teeth.

Dental Implants
Implants are synthetic structures that are placed in the area of the tooth normally occupied by the root. Implants are anchored to the jawbone or metal framework on the bone and act as a foundation for an artificial tooth or permanent bridge. In some cases, implants can be used to attach dentures.

Veneers
Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain or plastic cemented over the front of your teeth to change their color or shape. Veneers are used on teeth with uneven surfaces or are chipped, discolored, oddly shaped, unevenly spaced or crooked. Read More...

Crowns and Bridges
Crowns are synthetic caps, usually made of a material like porcelain, placed on the top of a tooth. Crowns are typically used to restore a tooth's function and appearance following a restorative procedure such as a root canal. When decay in a tooth has become so advanced that large portions of the tooth must be removed, crowns are often used to restore the tooth. Read More...

Zoom Whitening
Our state-of-the-art, in-office Zoom Whitening system will make your teeth whiter in less than 1.5 hours. Another option is our home bleaching system you take with you for results in 2 weeks. You can also consider a combination program of both systems for optimal, long-term results.  Read More...

Invisalign's® invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners will give you the beautiful straight teeth you've always wanted. And best of all, no one can tell you're wearing them. Invisalign is great for adults and teenagers. Read More...

Periodontal Treatment
You should have a standard cleaning at least twice a year. A periodontal treatment includes an Adult Prophy (basic cleaning). If it has been over a year since your last cleaning, possible treatment will include either Periodontal Scaling (deeper) or Root Planning and Scaling (requires anesthetic). Read More...

Mouth Guards
Whether you are an athlete or casual sports participant, you should wear a mouth guard to protect your teeth. If you grind your teeth while you sleep, a bite guard will help reduce symptoms of TMJ. We custom make mouth guards in both soft and hard materials. Read More...

Root Canal Therapy
Root canals are tiny passageways that branch off from beneath the top of the tooth, coursing their way vertically downward, until they reach the tip of the root. Read More...

Toothaches
Simple toothaches can often be relieved by rinsing the mouth to clear it of debris and other matter. Sometimes, a toothache can be caused or aggravated by a piece of debris lodged between the tooth and another tooth. Avoid placing an aspirin between your tooth and gum to relieve pain, because the dissolving aspirin can actually harm your gum tissue. Read More...

Dental Emergencies
Our goal is to help you to minimize the risk of emergency treatment. This is why we commit a generous amont of time designing a Lifetime Treatment Plan that will help you to offset the possibility of unforseen pain or tooth breakage. Read More...

Team Fun Page

Baseball Hall of Famer, Tony Gwynn, was diagnosed with salivary gland cancer in 2010. After a four-year battle that involved radiation therapy and two operations to remove tumors, Gwynn lost his life to oral cancer on June 16, 2014. He was 54 years old and left behind a wife and two children.

Gwynn blamed his oral cancer on his longtime habit of using smokeless tobacco during his twenty-year career as a Major League Baseball player for the San Diego Padres. Gwynn is not the first iconic baseball player to lose his life to oral cancer after years of  smokeless tobacco use.

While it is commonly known that tobacco is carcinogenic and is used by many professional baseball players, the Major League has not banned use of smokeless tobacco. While smokeless tobacco is discouraged in the Major League, it has been banned in the  professional Minor League.

The Oral Cancer Foundation explains that there are “two distinct pathways by which people come to oral cancer.” The first is through
tobacco and alcohol use and the other through exposure to the HPV-16 virus. The American Cancer Society offers the fact that almost 9 million people use smokeless tobacco products. They further explain that three out of four people who use chewing tobacco have
non-cancerous or pre-cancerous lesions in their mouths.

In addition to causing oral cancer, tobacco is a risk factor for 25 diseases. The American Cancer Society explains that smokeless tobacco can cause a variety of oral problems including: gingivitis, bone loss around the roots of teeth, cavities, tooth decay, tooth loss, staining and discoloration of teeth, and leukoplakia, mouth lesions that can become cancerous.

According to the Oral Cancer Foundation, tobacco contributes to about one third of cancer in the United States. Even though tobacco use is preventable, it is the most global cause of cancer and is expected to “make a greater claim on health than any other disease.”

With yet another tragic loss to cancer, we are reminded of the risks associated with tobacco use, and the need for oral cancer awareness and screenings.
