Other Questions

Do you offer sedation?

Although we do not offer full IV sedation we can prescribe an oral sedation pill that will help you relax and make you feel sleepy.  You are fully awake and in control of your body but anxiety is greatly reduced. You will need a driver to and from the dental appointment. We do not recommend oral sedation if you are pregnant or have glaucoma. We also offer Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas). Laughing gas makes you feel a little less anxious but does not require you to have a driver. You can drive yourself home.

Do you do teeth whitening?

We offer in-office bleaching for $199. It is two 20 minutes sessions with powerful but safe bleach. We also offer whitening strips for take home for $20. These are a great affordable option that work just as well but require you to wear 1 strip a day for 20 minutes for 7 days. Unfortunately, tooth whitening is unpredictable and we cannot guarantee results. It is also important to know that fillings and crowns will not bleach. Therefore if your teeth become whiter your crowns/fillings may need to be replaced to match the new lighter shade.

Do you extract wisdom teeth?

We extract wisdom teeth if they are fully erupted, not impacted, and the roots are fairly straight and far away enough from nerve. We will take a panoramic x-ray to determine the degree of difficulty of the extractions. If they are complex, close to your nerve or you want to be fully sedated we will refer you to an oral surgeon.

Do you do braces?

We do not do traditional braces at our office but we do offer clear aligner therapy. The well known brand for this is Invisilgn, however we use the brand ClearCorrect because there is a significant cost savings for the patient. We stick to mild to moderate cases. If your case is more complex we will likely refer you to an orthodontist to give you the best care possible. Keep in mind most insurance companies do not cover orthodontics and if they do it is generally only for people under the age of 18. The cost depends on the degree of difficulty of your case and how many aligners you need. Cases generally range from $1,200 to $4,800.
