Dealing with Sleep Apnea or Snoring?

Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when the airway completely collapses, blocking airflow into the lungs. The harder one tries to breathe, the tighter the airway seals. This airway obstruction persists until the brain partially awakens the person, unconsciously closing the jaw and returning the tongue and throat to a normal position.

We offer effective, nonsurgical relief from sleep apnea and other sleep-related disorders — including snoring. Ask us how you can get the restful, healthy sleep you’ve been missing.

Suffering from Jaw Pain, Ear Pain or Headaches?

We want to help you feel like yourself again!

If you've been living with persistent jaw pain, ear pain and headaches, you could have TMJ – temporomandibular jaw disorder. TMJ can often be traced back to an improper bite, misaligned jaw joints, or an injury to the jaw or face. TMJ treatment from a dentist can relieve the discomfort. Although TMJ treatment varies from patient to patient, it typically involves one or several procedures, including the use of an orthotic splint, enamel reshaping, dental crowns, dental braces or night guards. The goal of TMJ treatment is to stabilize your bite so that your teeth, jaw muscles and jaw joints work properly together without strain – and without pain!

Dental implants are a great option for replacing missing teeth, improving chewing ability, eliminating bridges, and replacing dentures.

Several implants may provide a base for a series of artificial teeth known as a fixed bridge. Implants can even be used to secure a full set of removable dentures for people who have no remaining natural teeth.

Complete Dentures

Mercury-Free Restorations

Mercury-Free Restorations Learn More

The common silver filling contains mercury. Our office uses the highest-quality biocompatible, tooth-colored restorations to create healthy, beautiful smiles.

This means it is more durable and provides a more natural-looking result.
