Our Specialty Services

Full Mouth Reconstruction

When your mouth is not functioning the way it should, quality of life often decreases due to pain or the inability to eat or even speak properly. We offer full mouth reconstruction treatment plans to rebuild your mouth and give you back your life. Full mouth reconstruction consists of multiple dental procedures with the ultimate goal of correcting all your concerns and restoring function to your mouth. Full mouth reconstruction commonly includes treatments like dental implants, orthodontics or TMJ disorder treatment.

Dental Implants

For those missing teeth, self-confidence can fall as you become embarrassed to speak, smile or laugh in front of others. Dental implants are the ultimate tooth replacement option, being able to restore both aesthetics and function as well as stimulation to the jaw bone. When you take proper care of your dental implants they can be a long-term solution that do not need to be replaced. Many patients report a boost to their confidence after dental implants have been placed.


The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is the muscle that connects the jaw to the skull. When this joint is damaged, overworked or inflamed, it can cause a host of problems, including lock jaw, jaw pain and facial soreness. We specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of TMJ disorder. Treatment of TMJ disorder can often improve other oral concerns including sleep apnea or an uneven bite.

Sedation Dentistry

Sedation dentistry is an excellent option for those who experience dental anxiety or fear. We offer multiple sedation options, including local anesthetic, nitrous oxide and oral sedation to help make you feel relaxed and at ease. With sedation, you can have a more enjoyable experience at the dentist and likely change your outlook on dentistry as a whole. Additionally, we are often able to perform multiple treatments at once while you are sedated, which means less visits to the dentist for you.
