We recommend all of our patients have their teeth cleaned by
our hygienist on a regular basis. Plaque and tartar that
build up on teeth over time will not be removed with your
toothbrush. If left on teeth and below the gum line for
prolonged periods, you take the chance of developing more
serious health problems. Research has found that untreated
gum disease is linked to life-threatening conditions like
stroke, heart disease, and diabetes. Please take this
recommendation seriously to stay healthy!
Saving Hopeless Teeth
It is now known that tooth extraction should be avoided
whenever possible to avoid other dental problems later on.
Root canals can save a tooth with infected or damaged roots
that might have warranted extraction in the past. We are
very experienced in the latest advancements of this therapy.
During this procedure, a tooth with root problems can be
fixed by removing the pulp from the interior of the tooth. A
special filling material is packed into the tooth.
Sometimes, a crown is placed over the tooth to give
Patients have often avoided having a root canal because of
the reputation they have received in the past. Advancements
both in technology and anesthetics have made considerable
improvements in this therapy, and patients now find root
canals to be quite manageable.
You Sometimes Headachy? Do You Regularly Suffer From Tension
or Even Migraine Headaches? Have We Got a Miracle for You!
If you suffer from headaches and would like an alternative

appliance works by relaxing muscles around the scalp, which
prevents the onset of most headaches. In clinical trials,
results showed that over three-quarters of migraine
sufferers had 77% fewer occurrences. This is an easy,
painless technique that is affordable and effective. If you
have hoped for a new approach in treatment for your
headaches, ask us how the NTI device can help.
Dental Care is Different
As we grow older, signs of age appear on our teeth and gums
as well as our bodies. After years of caffeine or tobacco
consumption, teeth will no longer be their whitest. Fillings
often loosen over time, making it easy for decay to set into
a tooth. At the onset of gum disease, treatment should begin
immediately to keep your natural teeth and overall good
health. If you take medications, sometimes the necessary
flow of saliva through your mouth is diminished. With
regular check-ups, we can provide timely solutions to all
these conditions before they become big problems. We
encourage the continuance of daily dental hygiene and proper
nutrition to take care of your oral health. If you
experience bleeding when brushing or flossing, please
contact us immediately.
