OrthodonticsThere are many causes for TMD jaw pain. It can simply be clenching your teeth under stress. Of course trauma is a major cause and severe trauma can create such severe damage it may only be treated by surgery. Most cases can be treated with oral splints to stabilize the articular discs (meniscus). Sometimes additional treatment such as orthopedic jaw movements and orthodontics are needed to find the physiologic comfort position for the TMJ's.
Invisalign OrthodonticsInvisalign straightens your teeth using a series of custom-made, nearly undetectable aligners. So whether your teeth are crowded, too far apart, or have shifted since wearing braces, Invisalign will help you start smiling more!

Resin CompositeIf you have undesired spaces or gaps between your teeth, you might consider composite bonding. With today's modern Dentistry, Dr. Dempsey has the ability to provide you with custom made, tooth-colored material, called composite resin. This material is bonded onto the teeth on either side of the gap or space until it is closed. In most cases, no anesthesia is needed. And depending up on the size of the gaps or spaces, composite bonding may or may not be the right solution for you.
VeneersIf you are unhappy with the shape, size or position of your front teeth, there are a few cosmetic options for you to choose from. One method is composite bonding, a nearly painless procedure that can fix most minor smile adjustments. Another, very popular, method is Porcelain Veneers. With Veneers, your smile can be completely transformed. They are thin, custom-made moldings that cover each unattractive tooth. Each veneer is individually sculpted for each patient and tooth. Dr. Dempsey is very experienced with Veneers and it is nearly impossible to tell the difference between the veneer and the natural tooth.
CrownsIn general, a tooth that has become abscessed is one whose underlying pulp (the tooths soft core) has become infected or swollen. The pulp contains nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue, and lies within the tooth. It extends from the crown of the tooth, to the tip of the root, in the bone of the jaws.
Root Canal TreatmentIn some cases, antibiotics are administered in an attempt to kill an infection. If antibiotics are ineffective and an abscess is shown to be damaging the pulp or lower bony structures, a root canal procedure may be needed to remove the dead pulp and restore the tooth to a healthy state.
DenturesImproved nutritional uptake by digestive system. Digestion begins in the mouth. Teeth subject food to the mechanical process of grinding, breaking it down into smaller and smaller pieces. Almost simultaneous with the smelling and chewing of food, saliva secretes onto and mixes with it. The enzymes in the saliva begin the further digestive breakdown of food. Now, if the step of mastication (grinding) of food were to be reduced due to inefficiency of a removable denture, the digestive process would be altered and food would not get properly digested further along the digestive tract. This improper digestion directly leads to fewer vital nutrients being absorbed later on in the digestive system.

Tooth WhiteningThere are two methods for whitening teeth. One is the Take Home technique and the other is In-Office ZOOM Whitening. While both are very effective, they're both distinctly different.
