Hours of Operation
Routine Teeth Cleanings & Exams
In a procedure called scaling and root planing, we can deep clean beneath the gumline to remove any harmful bacteria. Then, the roots of the teeth are smoothed out so that the gums can properly adhere to them, creating a barrier against further infection.
A dental implant is a titanium post that is inserted into the gums, and once it fuses to the jawbone, it creates the foundation for a crown restoration. At this point, it looks like and functions as a real tooth.
But what if you are missing multiple teeth, or even all of your teeth? All-on-four implants can replace all of your top and bottom teeth, using just four dental implants. Four posts are inserted in strategic areas along the jaw, and those implants are used to support a prosthetic device that recreates an entire row of teeth. Think of it like dentures, but held securely in place by four titanium screws. With all-in-four, it is possible to achieve a full, naturally beautiful smile, even if you are missing all of your teeth!
A bridge is a device that is cemented to the teeth to serve as a replacement for a missing tooth. The bridge consists of crowns that are placed on the teeth adjacent to the gap, and these crowns are connected to an abutment that is placed in the gap. A bridge is more secure and stable than dentures and looks natural in the smile.
Dentures & Partials
Dentures are removable devices that can be used to replace a whole row of teeth, while partials are used to replace a few teeth. We create your dentures after taking an impression of your smile, to ensure they will fit snugly and comfortably.
If your tooth is broken or decayed beyond repair, an extraction is performed. After the extraction, we will discuss your options for replacing the tooth, which include dentures, a bridge, or dental implants.
Dr. Stenvall specializes in treating orofacial pain and TMJ. Problems with your jaw can lead to clicking and popping in the temporomandibular joints (connecting the jaw to the skill), muscle pain, and headaches. If you are experiencing these symptoms, Dr. Stenvall will examine your jaw, make a diagnosis, and provide you with a treatment plan. Treatments include pain medication, mouth guards, and physical therapy. In severe cases that don’t respond to these treatments, surgery may be necessary.
If you want a more aligned smile but don’t want to wear braces, clear aligners are a great choice. We create a series of sets of aligners. Each set is to be worn for about two weeks before moving on to the next set. These aligners are specifically designed to gradually shift your teeth into the correct position. The best part is that the aligners are virtually invisible and can be removed to eat, drink, and brush your teeth!
Sleep apnea is more than just snoring. It is condition that causes one to stop breathing for brief periods of time during sleep. Someone with sleep apnea may wake up many times throughout the night without even knowing it. They will wake up feeling fatigued and may struggle with irritability, memory trouble, difficulty focusing, morning headaches, and even high blood pressure or other more serious health problems.
If you are suffering from sleep apnea, we can create an oral device that allows the jaw to protrude forward, opening up the airways. Wear this at night for improved, easier breathing and a more restful sleep, for you and your family!
We will provide you a with a bleaching gel and trays created to fit your top and bottom teeth. Apply the bleach-filled trays to the teeth for about half an hour per day for two weeks. Enjoy the confidence that comes from a vibrantly whiter smile!
