Nitrous Oxide Sedation Dentistry

Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is a great tool for patients who may be uneasy about their dental procedures. The beauty of using laughing gas for sedation dentistry is that your dentist can constantly adjust your level of sedation during the procedure & once it is shut off, the effects stop almost immediately. A few minutes after the procedure is complete, you’ll be back to normal!

Sleep Apnea Treatment

Did you know that people with sleep apnea can stop breathing for roughly 10-30 seconds at a time while they are sleeping? This can happen 5 to 30 or more times per hour, & hundreds of times throughout the night! If you suffer from sleep apnea or snoring, we can help with our sleep apnea treatment. Through the use of oral appliances, you’ll avoid the health consequences of sleep apnea, including increased rates of depression, diabetes, heart disease & stroke. These sleep apnea treatment devices will also help relieve snoring, leading to a better night’s rest for you & your partner.

Low-Radiation Digital X-Rays

We offer in-office digital x-rays for your convenience. Digital x-rays are computer-generated images. These images require up to 90% less radiation than with conventional film-type x-rays. Instead of using the traditional silver-oxide x-ray film, which must be developed & then fixed in caustic & environmentally damaging solutions, the new system takes pictures via a small electronic sensor. A picture of the tooth is instantaneously transmitted onto the monitor in the treatment room so we can see your teeth & surrounding structures immediately. Feel free to contact us for more details or to make an appointment!
