Having a dentist where the entire family can be treated in the same office is both convenient and reassuring for children. We encourage parents to bring their children in as early as their first tooth erupts to start a lifetime of good dental habits.
Removable dentures are a common option for replacing missing teeth. This can be a full denture that replaces an entire arch or simply a partial denture that replaces a few teeth. Through a series of appointments, you will choose the perfect smile for you, with the help of our amazing lab, Dr. Meghan will fabricate the natural-looking smile you deserve.
Overdentures are complete dentures that snap into 2-4 dental implants. This is commonly used to keep a lower denture from slipping when speaking or chewing. Patients love how simple it is to adapt to a denture for better security.
Dental Restorations and fillings are used to restore the function of a tooth by replacing missing, damaged, or decayed tooth structure. Our office offers both composite resin (tooth colored) fillings and silver amalgam fillings.
Anxiety with dental appointments can have a major impact on a person's overall well being. Research has shown that people with dental phobia tend to have more cavities and missing teeth. We do our very best to make even the most anxious person comfortable by offering pillows, blankets, television, and sedative medications including Nitrous Oxide. Our patients needs are important and we strive to meet them each individually.
Dental implants are meant to replace a missing tooth or teeth that are not removable. A dental implant is a titanium fixture placed in the jawbone that acts as the root of a tooth. A single crown, bridge or denture can be affixed to the implant creating a tooth-like appearance and function that is permanent. Implants will not decay and proper cleaning can be easily maintained for a lifetime. We work with an implant specialist to place the implant in the bone. Dr. Meghan then works closely with our lab to achieve optimum esthetics and function as she makes the final restoration that will be supported by the implant.
Dr. Meghan recognizes there are postural influences on bite patterns and appliances can be fabricated to reflect that relationship. Appliances may be needed for a variety of conditions including bruxing, clenching, airway management, and to allow for a greater range of movement during physical therapy. Our office works directly with the Hruska Clinic and PRIME Program to help people from around the world to keep their bodies in line.
Teeth need to be removed for a variety of reasons whether they are impacted wisdom teeth, crowded baby teeth or severely compromised by decay or periodontal disease. Dr. Meghan has had extra training in extractions which allows her to confidently and comfortably remove teeth when necessary. Nitrous oxide sedation is available to decrease anxiety and allow for a more pleasant experience. Occasionally a referral to an oral surgeon is necessary and we are happy to provide that as well.
