Our practice believes that preventive dental care is vitally important to helping maintain a healthy mouth for a lifetime. We focus keeping your gum tissue and teeth as healthy as possible and treating any potential situation before it becomes a major concern.
A bridge may be used to replace missing teeth, help maintain the shape of your face, and alleviate stress on your bite.
If you’re missing teeth, you no longer have to struggle with missing spaces or a removable appliance. Dental implants are a great option to replace one or more missing teeth and stay in place permanently. Dr. Luke would be happy to discuss this treatment option and evaluate to see if you would be a good candidate for a dental implant.
Temporomandibular Joint Disorder
While millions of Americans suffer from chronic facial and neck pain as well as recurring headaches, in many cases due to Temporo-mandibular Joint Disorder, (or TMD), you don't have to with help from our dentist.
Our practice believes in using the most modern and up-to-date treatment options possible. For this reason, we use only bonded composite, or tooth colored fillings, in our practice. Fillings can be indicated for a number of reasons, but primarily are used to treat teeth after having a cavity or fractured surface removed.
When a tooth is cracked or has a deep cavity, bacteria can enter the pulp tissue and germs can cause an infection inside the tooth. If left untreated, an abscess may form.
Our dentist knows that a child's first visit to the dentist should be enjoyable. Children are not born with a natural fear of the dentist, but rather a fear of the unknown. With kids in mind, our dentists make a special effort to use pleasant, non-frightening, simple words to describe each treatment. We want you and your child to feel at ease from the moment your family arrives at our office.
Crowns are a cosmetic restoration used to strengthen a tooth or improve its shape. Crowns are most often used for teeth that are broken, worn, or partially destroyed by tooth decay.
Our goal as a practice is to help our patients keep their teeth for a lifetime, but unfortunately there are situations where a tooth must be removed. Poor restorability, infection, orthodontic correction, or problems with a wisdom tooth are a few common reasons that teeth need to be extracted.
Scaling & Root Planning
Scaling and root planning is one of the most effective, non-surgical ways to treat periodontal disease before it becomes severe.
There are many products and techniques available for patients who want to achieve a brighter smile, and with so many options available, it can be difficult to choose the method that is right for you. The best way to begin any teeth-whitening regimen is to schedule an appointment and talk to your doctor about the differences between in-office professional whitening and at-home whitening.
