I've been a general dentist now for thirty years. I can't believe how it's been that long. Over that time, I've developed skills and comfort at doing most aspects of dentistry. Early in my career, I was in a rural area where I was a long ways from any specialists so I developed comfort at doing a lot of dentistry. I'm now in a suburban area where there are specialists nearby, so that I will refer to specialists who are close by for different things. But we do children, adults, senior citizens, handicap patients. I'm comfortable doing fillings, crowns, root canals, implants, partials, dentures. We can do everything, and what we can't do, we have wonderful specialists that we work with that can use a team approach to get things accomplished and have you comfortable the whole time.

Mouthguards For Sports And Bruxism
A custom athletic mouthguard:
- Fits better and is more comfortable to wear than store-bought mouthguards
- Will protect your teeth from a sports injury
- Should be checked regularly at our office for wear and tear
A bruxism mouthguard:
- Can protect your teeth from the premature wear that results from teeth grinding
- Allows your jaw muscles to relax while you’re sleeping

Non-Surgical Gum Disease Treatment
Gum disease is what happens when bacteria cause inflammation and infect your gums, causing them to begin pulling away from your teeth. This creates pockets for bacteria to flourish in. We can treat gum disease with a deep cleaning called scaling and root planing.
