Fear and anxiety related to visiting the dentist no longer have to stand in the way of the dental treatment you need or desire. With sedation dentistry techniques, you can enter a deep state of relaxation—free of anxiety—before your treatment even begins. We offer various methods based on the level of sedation you require and the condition of your health. Our certified staff pays close attention to your vital signs throughout the process, allowing you to rest safely and comfortably during your appointment. Before your next visit, we encourage you to inquire about the specific sedation approaches we offer and which options may be right for you.
Dental implants are considered the gold-standard for functional, reliable, natural-looking tooth replacement. This treatment uses custom-designed dental prosthetics (crowns, bridges, and/or dentures) attached to implanted titanium posts to replace missing or badly damaged teeth. Since the implant posts are able to fuse with the jawbone tissue, the fixed restorations function like natural teeth—allowing individuals to speak, chew, smile, and eat their favorite foods with confidence. When placed by a skilled implant dentist and properly cared for, dental implants can look beautiful and last for a lifetime. If you are interested in dental implants, please let us know so that we can evaluate you for this state-of-the-art procedure.
Root Canal Therapy
An infection in the root of a tooth can be incredibly painful and must be treated to help save the tooth from extraction. Root canal therapy, also called endodontic treatment, is the approach used to remove the infection from the tooth, protect the healthy tooth material, and restore the full structure of the tooth (often with a custom crown or an inlay/onlay, depending on the patient’s unique needs). A root canal can quickly relieve pain and improve the condition of your oral health.
Dental emergencies can happen at any time. Whether you have an infection, have lost a temporary crown, have broken or knocked out a tooth, or are experiencing another issue that requires urgent dental care, you can count on Authentic Smile Care to deliver over-the-phone emergency advice and get you in for an immediate appointment with one of our dentists. We are equipped to address virtually any dental emergency and focus our energy on relieving your pain while restoring your oral health as quickly as possible. If you are experiencing extreme dental pain or have sustained an oral injury, contact us right away for the urgent dental care you need.
When your jaw joint—called the temporomandibular joint (TMJ)—is misaligned or otherwise dysfunctional, it is possible to experience painful and even debilitating symptoms that can diminish your quality-of-life. Popping, grinding, and clicking sounds may also be apparent when you open and close your jaw. At Authentic Smile Care, our dentists are experienced in diagnosing and treating TMJ disorder to reduce discomfort and achieve proper alignment of the jawbones and bite. We offer a variety of treatment methods to target inflammation, relax tight musculature, protect against dental damage, and reposition the jaw. TMJ treatment is always customized for your specific needs and fine-tuned as needed.
Loud, persistent snoring and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) can sometimes be treated with a custom oral device that repositions the jaw and shifts interfering soft tissue during sleep. If you or a loved one have problems with snoring, have been diagnosed with OSA, or are experiencing what you think may be symptoms of OSA, we encourage you to contact our practice. Treating your sleep apnea with a custom oral device can enhance the quality of your sleep, diminish physical and mental health symptoms, and reduce your chances of developing serious (sometimes fatal) complications.
We use laser technology in many areas of our practice to deliver the highest-quality care and results to our patients. Dental lasers can be used for soft tissue procedures (such as gum recontouring/gummy smile reduction), periodontal disease treatment, and other applications as they commonly offer the most effective, efficient, comfortable, conservative, and quick-healing approach possible. At the time of your appointment, ask us about laser dentistry to learn more about how we use laser technology to benefit our patients’ treatment experiences and outcomes.
