Periodontal Care

Periodontal disease is an infection of the gums surrounding the teeth and is one of the top reasons for tooth loss in adults. Many patients don’t realize they have it, so we check for signs at every check-up. Healthy gums are the foundation for great oral health, and we offer the latest techniques to prevent, diagnose, and treat gum disease with non-surgical and laser treatments.


A nightguard helps prevent teeth grinding (bruxism) and snoring at night, and may be used in TMJ therapy. Our custom-fit oral devices are comfortable, high-quality, easy to keep clean, and don’t interfere with breathing. Enjoy a better night’s rest with our custom nightguards and discover an effortless way to prevent jaw pain and discomfort.

TMJ Therapy
Jaw and facial pain or aching, and headaches are all possible signs of TMJ problems.

Constant pain and aching around the jaw can take over your life.

Tenderness in the jaw can make it difficult to talk or painful to chew.

If left untreated, these may cause bigger health-related problems.

TMJ therapy can help relax the muscles around the joints for a more comfortable position, relieving your pain.

Dental emergencies happen for many reasons, from accidents to negligence, and we offer advice by phone or schedule you in ASAP. For after-hours dental emergencies, please visit your local ER.
