Orthodontics is a dental specialty focused on aligning your bite and straightening your teeth. You might need to see an orthodontist if you have crooked, overlapped, twisted or gapped teeth. Common orthodontic treatments include traditional braces, clear aligners and removable retainers.
Dr. Rony Dagher
Endodontics is the branch of dentistry that focuses on the dental pulp, the internal portion of teeth. It has blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue. It can get inflamed or infected because of deep tooth decay, traumatic injury to a tooth, and repeated dental work on a tooth. When that happens, an endodontist is the specialist to see.
Dr. Thomas Voutsas
Oral surgery refers to any surgical procedure performed on your teeth, gums, jaws or other oral structures. This includes extractions, implants, gum grafts and jaw surgeries.
Dr. Farah Walji
Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost one or more teeth due to reasons such as periodontal disease, tooth decay or an injury. A dental implant is placed as a permanent replacement for your natural tooth root. Once the implant is healed and integrated with your jawbone, a prosthetic tooth or bridge is placed on top. When most people use the term “dental implants”, they are referring to both the implant and the prosthetic tooth, combined.
Our “Teeth-In-A-Day” treatment allows patients to walk into their appointment and walk out, on the same day, with a completely new, permanent and natural looking smile. This treatment involves the strategic placement of dental implants, to which a custom denture is then permanently fixed. Rather than being removable, like regular dentures, patients receiving the “Teeth-In-A-Day” treatment quickly return to the comfort & function of natural teeth. Patients choose this treatment due to the improved ability to eat and speak, as well as for the improved presentation of facial structure and overall quality of life. Deciding if this is the right treatment for you is determined during a consultation with one of our doctors.
