Healthy Smile, A Healthy Body
General & Preventive Dentistry Phoenix AZ
We know that your oral health is not only about looking your best. It's about maintaining healthy teeth and gums. Did you know that the cause of most tooth loss is not decay? It's gum disease. And recent studies have established a link between gum disease and your overall health. The good news is that gum disease can be treated successfully, often without surgery. We want all of our patients to have outstanding oral health. Our commitment to you includes paying meticulous attention to all of your needs so you look your best and have optimum health.

With LANAP, gum disease can be treated successfully without scalpels or sutures, so healing and recovery is generally faster and less painful than traditional gum surgery.

Are You Sometimes
Headachy? Do You Regularly Suffer
From Tension or Even Migraine Headaches? Have We Got a Miracle For You!
You may have heard Diane Sawyer discuss this on Good Morning America, or maybe you’ve seen this in People magazine. The FDA approved a drug-free treatment for the prevention of migraine and tension headaches. This little miracle is called the NTI™ device, and it’s now available in our practice. It works by relaxing the muscles under the scalp and preventing the majority of headaches. Clinical trials showed that 82% of migraine sufferers achieved a 77% reduction in migraine events. It’s painless, fast, and NOT expensive. If you experience migraines or know someone who does then be sure to ask us about this exciting new treatment.
Saving Hopeless Teeth
Dental Root Canal Treatment Phoenix AZ
Teeth with roots that have been damaged or infected used to require extraction, which can cause a lot of problems and should be avoided whenever possible. The good news is that we are well experienced in advanced root canal therapy.
A root canal is a procedure to fix a tooth by removing the pulp chamber of a tooth and filling it with a filling material. This is often necessary when dental decay reaches the nerve of the tooth (or the tooth has become infected), and a simple filling will not be suitable.
In the not too distant past, the situation mentioned above would have required the tooth to be extracted. When dentists started performing root canals, they were quite painful, and the root canal has received a reputation as something to be avoided. However, with modern anesthetics and technology, the root canals we can perform in our practice are tolerable and sometimes even painless.
