Latest Technology at our Practice
Fully digital and other advanced technologies are used at our practice. Digital x-rays now allow our dentists and you to see images of your teeth almost immediately. Not only is their accuracy vastly improved from the old x-ray machines, but we can view and share them quickly instead of waiting for them to be produced, and for instance, shipped to the lab. Panoramic x-rays capture your entire mouth in one image and allow us to plan your treatment with much more precision. Intraoral cameras allow us to take a closer look in real-time and show you on one of our overhead displays what is happening in your mouth and see exactly what we are discussing and how we can correct any problems or bring you comfort from pain. These and other technologies are part of our commitment to educating our patients and allowing them to take control of their oral health.

Cosmetic Dentistry for a beautiful Smile
Dental Implants Periodontist
Replacing lost teeth with permanent ones is a procedure which has many benefits without limiting your favorite foods or even participation in your favorite social activities. Prosthesis such as a dental bridge or dental implants help you avoid bone loss or gum disease and recession and allow you to speak and chew with a new smile that looks great and feels natural. Replace just one or multiple, or all of them, with a fixed bridge. Our expert dentists can give you the opportunity to replace any missing ones with replacements that will look and feel – and chew – just like natural ones.
Dental Veneers are used for cosmetic purposes, but there are many other benefits you may not be aware of. They can fix the look of discolored, worn, chipped, gapped or misaligned teeth. A veneer is made from a very thin laminate, which is applied to the front surface of your tooth. They can correct many functional and aesthetic problems. They are made from porcelain or resin composites/porcelain, resulting in a durable and natural looking tooth.
Teeth Whitening Service
Having stained teeth can give a poor first impression. Discoloration can be embarrassing but it happens. Certain food and drinks can cause stains over the years. So can naturally-occurring health problems. Smoking and other drugs can also cause discoloration. Restore your smile to optimal brightness with our tooth whitening treatments.
Orthodontics – Invisalign & Clear Braces
Your smile may be crooked today but you don’t have to live with it. We can transform that smile into something beautiful with the help of braces or clear Invisalign aligners retainer. These are effective ways to straighten teeth or even correct minor underbites, overbites, cross bites or close a gap.
Dedicated to Saving your Teeth
Cleanings, Cavities & Fillings
Regular check ups and cleaning are crucial to maintaining good oral health. These visits allow us to check for cavities and catch any small issues before they can become a problem. Poor oral hygiene is linked to many serious illnesses. Part of our excellent care is educating you on the proper use of brushing, flossing and maintaining your oral hygiene.
Endodontics – Root Canal
Root Canal treatment, also known as endodontic therapy, can save an infected, painful, cracked or broken, decayed tooth from needing to be pulled. It can relieve pain quickly and is an excellent method of saving a front tooth or molar. The nerve and surrounding pulp are removed and the inside of the tooth is then cleaned and sealed. A crown is added to further protect the tooth. Dr. Bryan T. Moore, DDS performs our root canal surgeries.
Dental Bridges & Crowns
A dental bridge is a fixed prosthesis used for replacing a set of missing teeth by using the support from the healthy ones on either side of the gap. They restore the normal function, while giving you a natural look.
Although a dental crown is sometimes considered cosmetic, most often it is used to protect a fragile tooth. It is placed upon a weakened tooth and completely protects the surface above the gumline. A crown is a great option for repairing weak or damaged ones.
Dentistry for Comfort & Function
Denture Care Center
As we get older, replacing any lost teeth becomes a real and important part of keeping a healthy smile. When you have gaps, in addition to the embarrassment and problems eating, the adjacent teeth can shift and move into the space. This can damage the tissues in your mouth and affect the bone density of your jaw. By getting prosthetics you can prevent this from happening. We offer partial and complete dentures for a full set on the upper or lower jaw. Check out our affordable dentures to learn more.
Tooth Extraction and Wisdom Teeth Removal
A tooth extraction is removing a tooth from its socket in the jaw bone. This procedure is often required if you have an impacted tooth that is damaged or cracked and cannot be repaired another way. We offer safe teeth pulling here at our office.
Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are a part of your natural dentition and typically appear sometime between the ages of 17 and 25. Sometimes they can cause a great deal of pain or discomfort, especially if you have swollen gums or irritation. When they are crowded tightly together or are emerging sideways it is usually best to have them removed.

Other services that we have expertise and provide to our patients are sedation dentistry, Teeth Whitening, Bone Grafting & more. We love to bring beautiful smiles to Children & families.
