BracesStraight and properly aligned teeth are important components to a beautiful, healthy smile. Improper alignment can lead to damaged teeth, periodontal (gum) disease, and TMJ disorders. For patients with mild to moderate orthodontic problems, Dr. King offers Smart Moves®, or “invisible braces”.
OrthodonticsIf you have crooked or crowded teeth that are embarrassing to you or otherwise preventing you from achieving optimal oral health, Invisalign could be the solution for you. Visit your [city] Invisalign dentist for a complete consultation to find out if you could benefit from clear orthodontics.

Dr. King has received additional training and has chosen to incorporate Invisalign into the practice. Most of our patients are adults and are achieving excellent results.
Dental ImplantsWhen considering dental implants to replace missing teeth, you should first have a consultation with your dentist to see if you are a candidate for implants, as not everyone is. In the consultation, your dentist will ask you multiple questions about your health. One of the most important questions you will be asked is, whether or not you are a smoker. If you answer yes, there are many things you should know before proceeding with the procedure. Every surgery has risks. There is a chance that your bone could reject the implant, causing implant failure. You may develop Peri-implantitis. This is when you develop a deep mucosal pocket, which then leads to inflammation around the area of the implant. People who smoke are at a higher risk for this type of implant failure.
BridgesA bridge (a device used to replace missing teeth) attaches artificial teeth to adjacent natural teeth, called abutment teeth. Bridges are either permanently attached (fixed bridges), or they can be removable.
Restorative DentistryOcclusal disease is the breakdown of enamel on chewing surfaces of the teeth due to stressful overload. It is a result of an imbalance of the jaws, joints, muscles and teeth. The occlusal system should work in harmony. When these relationships are working against each other, rather than in harmony, the teeth begin to break down, and the joints and muscles become stressed leading to complicated issues such as TMD.
Dental BondingCosmetic Bonding – Cosmetic bonding is a treatment that uses tooth colored composite material to improve the appearance of crooked teeth and close gaps between teeth.
Resin CompositeThe majority of decay on back teeth starts in the grooves and pits of chewing surfaces, especially during the first few years after their eruption. Sealing these surfaces with composite resins prevents this kind of decay.
VeneersPorcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic that bond directly to the front and top surfaces of the teeth. They are an ideal choice for improving your smile and have become increasingly popular due to their simplicity and versatility. With veneers as an alternative, there is no reason to put up with gaps between your teeth, teeth that are stained, badly shaped or crooked. Veneers can improve the shape of your teeth, make your teeth as white as you want and give you the smile you have always wanted.
CrownsWhere damage to a person’s teeth is extreme, and apparently beyond repair, we can use crowns to make the smile appear “as new”. This is an extremely reliable technique for repairing the most severe of dental problems, even permanently replacing missing teeth to offer a complete smile and a functional bite. These treatments are used for a long lasting correction of major dental problems. It is usual for these treatments to last for 20 to 30 years, which is as close to permanent as dental treatment can get.
Root Canal TreatmentAdditionally, your dental x-rays allow Dr. King to see the condition of prior dental procedures, such as fillings, crowns, root canals, and bridges. Dr. King can also look for possible bone loss as a result of periodontal gum disease or teeth grinding.Â In addition to diagnostics, Dr. King may choose to perform dental X-rays in order to check for bone density as part of preparing you for dental implants, which require an adequate density in order to support the implants.
DenturesYou will experience some discomfort with any new denture for a few days. All new dentures need several adjustments to completely and comfortably fit your mouth. It may be difficult to talk normally with the new denture for a few days. A way to practice is to read a book or newspaper out loud for a period of time everyday. Your tongue and muscles will get used to the new denture and you will talk normally very soon.
OverdenturesThe implant is now ready for the final restoration (crown, bridge or overdenture). An impression is taken of the implant and the appropriate restoration is made.
Tooth WhiteningHaving a beautiful smile may be even easier than you think. A whiter, brighter smile can help you feel better about yourself and make a memorable impression. Many people achieve the look they’ve been dreaming of with our simple whitening procedures.
Cosmetic DentistryCosmetic Dentistry is more than just creating a beautiful smile. Dr. King practices complete dentistry, balancing art and science to deliver long term results by addressing functional problems in addition to cosmetic concerns.
General DentistryDr. King provides a wide range of general dentistry and preventive dental care services to prevent and treat cavities in adults and children.
Teeth CleaningIf you have gingivitis, an early stage of periodontal disease, we will perform a through dental cleaning to remove plaque and tartar from exposed parts of the teeth and gums. Antibacterial rinses and other aids may be recommended to reduce inflammation and cure gingivitis.
Dental SealantsSealants are thin layers of resin that are placed on the pits, fissures, and grooves of molars to prevent decay on these surfaces.
Dental ExaminationDuring the routine dental exam, your hygienist will measure the collar of tissue that surrounds each tooth with a periodontal probe. You may notice a slight “poking” sensation and/or your hygienist may record numbers on a periodontal chart. This exam is done at every appointment with a more comprehensive measurement once a year. These pocket depths help us to determine the health of the periodontium, or more commonly stated as your gums. One to Three millimeters, on the periodontal charting scale is considered a healthy periodontal reading. With healthy readings we may just give some isolated instructions for gingivitis or discuss an area that needs more attention with your homecare. Any reading greater than three millimeters is considered to be a periodontal issue that we will immediately begin to address in the office. Another significant finding of a periodontal issue is the presence of bleeding. If your gums bleed there is some form of infection!
X-raysDental X-rays are one of the most important parts of your routine dental treatment. Dr. King uses the specialized imaging technology to look for hidden tooth decay â€“ also called cavities â€“ and can show dental issues such as abscessed teeth, dental tumors, and cysts.
Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
Tooth ExtractionsAfter tooth extraction, it is important for a blood clot to form to stop the bleeding and begin the healing process. After the blood clot forms, it is important not to disturb or dislodge the clot as it aids healing.
