Personalized Family Smiles
We encourage you to visit us twice a year for regular dental exams with one of our dentists and cleanings delivered by one our team of talented hygienists. During your biannual exam, we’ll look for early signs of oral cancer, gum disease, and cavities.
Our highly skilled dentists and staff are available during or after office hours for dental emergencies in Huntersville, NC. Whether you’re suffering from severe tooth pain, lost a filling, or your child cracked a tooth playing sports, we’ll do our best to treat you promptly to alleviate your pain.
If you feel nervous or anxious about dental care, you’re not alone. We strive to deliver high-quality and nearly painless oral health care for your entire family. Depending on the procedure being done and your anxiety level, you can opt for nitrous oxide, oral sedation, or IV sedation.
Tooth decay is a common oral health problem affecting people of all ages, from the first baby tooth through all stages of life. Cavities don’t happen overnight and regular visits can stall and reverse decay progression. You can prevent cavities in children by encouraging good oral habits from the time they’re little. We fill cavities as soon as we detect them to prevent the need for more extensive services like root canals and dental implants. Composite fillings are a natural-looking alternative to traditional amalgam fillings that restore strength and aesthetics after decay is removed.
Tooth extractions are one of the most common types of oral surgery procedures. This is done if a tooth is beyond repair and in preparation for full mouth implants. During this procedure, we gently pull your tooth, being careful not to disturb healthy bone or gum tissue. We also provide more complex wisdom tooth removal (third molar) extraction in teens and adults.
Sometimes, tiny interferences prevent your teeth from coming together properly (called malocclusion) and this impacts your bite. This can happen when teeth develop, after an injury, or develop over time due to wear. Fillings, crowns, bridges, and extractions can also cause this issue. We use special articulating paper that you bite down on that shows us what areas need to be carefully shaped and filed to resolve the problem.
Dental Crowns and Bridges
If your tooth has undergone root canal therapy, is misshapen, or missing altogether, we create natural-looking crowns or bridges with in-house CEREC technology. This innovative technology offers ultimate convenience and high-quality same-day restorations that blend in perfectly with healthy teeth in color and structure.
Full and Partial Dentures
Technology has improved in recent years, making dentures more comfortable and natural looking than in the past. Full dentures are a viable tooth replacement option if all or most of your teeth are missing. When remaining teeth are extracted, gums need to heal for 8-12 weeks prior to getting your dentures. Partial dentures are a good solution for replacing a few missing teeth. A partial denture is held in place by a plastic base the same color as your gums with a metal framework to secure the base and prevent it from falling out.
Our team offers Invisalign®, a discreet, nearly invisible, and comfortable straightening option for a beautiful smile. We also work with an orthodontist that offers traditional braces, retainers, palatal expanders, and Surgically Facilitated Orthodontics Therapy (SFOT) to restore the function and aesthetics of your bite.
If you have mild to moderate sleep apnea, we can create a custom-made mouth guard to fit the shape of your teeth and mouth to help alleviate the problem. This type of oral device can also help prevent snoring. Likewise, if you’re suffering from painful temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ), a mouth guard may provide relief. This is custom made based on your symptoms and contributing causes (e.g. teeth clenching) to help alleviate associated pain.
