About us

Your oral health plays an important role and it is essential for you to understand why this is so. If you still think that oral health only has to do with your teeth and gums, you should know that it goes beyond your mouth. To address your dental needs and concerns, finding the right dentist is key and, at , in , , we offer the quality dental care services you seek.


When would you require emergency dental services?

Injuries to teeth or gums should never be disregarded. Nerves or blood vessels could be damaged, plus there is always the risk of infection. If an infection is not treated, it can spread to other parts of the head and neck and cause serious health problems. Getting dental lesions treated as soon as possible is the best thing to do. One of the most common problems that require immediate emergency dental care is pain and it may be caused by:


  • Tooth decay

  • Abscessed tooth

  • Chipped or broken tooth

  • Infected gums

  • Damaged fillings

If your toothache lasts longer than one or two days, is severe, there is fever, earache, or discomfort when opening your mouth wide, get emergency dental care right away. Proper identification and treatment is important, especially if there is a dental infection, to prevent it from spreading to other parts of the face and skull, and even to the bloodstream.


What services can you benefit from?

If you reside in , , locating a provider who takes care of general and urgent dental health issues may prove difficult at times. At , we offer comprehensive and emergency dental care. Below you will find a summary of our areas of expertise.

  • Braces

If, for whatever reason, Invisalign is not for you, traditional metal braces may be the alternative to try. This type of braces is a more affordable, yet higher-maintenance option. You may also consider a different kind of teeth straightening device, such as:

  • Ceramic braces: These function just like traditional braces, but instead of metal brackets, they have clear or tooth-colored ones, making them much less obvious and often working much faster than Invisalign.

  • Forsus appliance: This device is used to correct the jawline of patients whose upper jaw protrudes over the lower one, align the teeth, and significantly reduce an overbite, thus promoting healthy jaw growth.

  • Palatal expander: This device expands the upper jaw so that it easily aligns with the lower one. This treatment is often followed with the application of traditional braces to straighten the teeth.

  • Traditional braces: These are the more commonly used, yet most effective braces, the ones with metal wires and brackets.


  • Teeth Cleanings

We need teeth cleanings for two main reasons: to prevent tooth loss and diseases in the rest of the body. Teeth cleanings remove the buildup of plaque and tartar. While this buildup is, for the most part natural, too much of it leads to gum disease. Teeth cleanings serve to level the playing field by keeping things in check.


Sometimes, during teeth cleanings and regular checkups, our dentist may find an abscess. This is a painful swelling caused by an infection in the gum or inside a tooth. To cure an abscess in the gum, our dentist will need to clean the area, drain the pus, and treat the infection with antibiotics. In the case of a tooth abscess, if there already is a fistula, the course of action may include, but it's not limited to, drainage, a root canal, an extraction, or surgery.



When there are gaps between your teeth or if they are crooked or misaligned, your smile may not look as good as you'd like it to. Fortunately, now there is an effective treatment that will straighten your teeth to give you the star-quality smile you've always dreamed of: Invisalign. This innovative teeth straightening system consists of custom-fitting, clear plastic aligners that not only straighten your teeth, but can also be removed to make oral hygiene, eating, and drinking simple and easy.



Crowns or caps, are tooth-shaped covers placed over a tooth that is badly damaged or decayed. Crowns may be applied on a tooth that has been broken or severely damaged by decay and, because of this, a filling can't replace enough of the tooth or strengthen it enough. A crown may hold together parts of a cracked tooth and hold a bridge in place. Crowns may also be used to improve appearance by covering misshapen or badly discolored teeth.


Notwithstanding, it is important to keep in mind that, when it comes to cleaning crowns, you will need our dentist to do it for you. Crowns need to be removed to clean the teeth and the caps themselves.
