Dental Emergencies

Contact us immediately upon any emergencies. We will instruct you to our facility or another alternative one that can treat you.

Sedation
General Anesthesia

General anesthesia can makes a patient unconscious during the procedures. If you have an intense fear and anxiety or are facing major dental work procedures, this may be a viable option.

Oral Conscious Sedation

Patients who are anxious about dental work, as well as those who need multiple procedures performed in one visit, may consider this as an option. Typically this procedure involves taking a sedative orally, then receiving nitrous oxide (laughing gas) during the procedure.

IV Conscious Sedation

This type of sedation induces a “twilight” state, and a relaxed body. Patients who receive conscious sedation typically can speak and respond throughout the procedure.

Veneers

A veneer is a thin layer of material placed over a tooth, either to improve the aesthetics of a tooth or to protect a damage to a tooth’s surface.What is involved in the placement of my dental implant?

Dental Implants

A dental implant is a “root” device, usually made of titanium, used in dentistry to support restorations that resemble a tooth or group of teeth to replace missing teeth
