BracesDamon System: In the past, braces were bulky and required lots of visible bands around teeth. Elastics can cause friction, therefore moving teeth slowly and causing discomfort. Damon System’s high technology wires move teeth faster and with less force. They eliminated the need for elastic or metal “ties”. The brackets are small and discreet, and offer clear brackets for upper anterior teeth. The wires are state of the art, space-age, heat activated, memory wires (the wire returns to a pre-formed shape, which is how the wires move your teeth). Damon System provides our patients with extraordinary results, shorter treatment time, reduced extractions, less need for headgear and expanders, and great comfort. We offer the Damon System for the entire family.
Invisalign OrthodonticsRealine: From the creators of Invisalign, Realine is a clear aligner system that is designed specifically to fix minor crowding. Realine allows us to close small gaps and treat orthodontic relapse – giving a straighter, more confidents smile in a short amount of time.
Dental ImplantsA dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth. The crown covers the tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and to approve its appearance. When the crown is cemented into place it will fully encase the entire visible portion of a tooth that is visible above the gum line. There are many reasons why a crown may be diagnosed. Some of the most common reasons are to restore a broken or worn tooth, to cover and support a tooth with a large filling and not a lot of tooth structure left and to cover an implant. In our office crowns require two visits. Initially, we will remove decay, shape the tooth, and fit it with a temporary crown. At your next visit we will remove the temporary crown and fit and adjust the final crown until ready to be cemented in place.
BridgesA bridge is a device used to replace missing teeth and attaches artificial teeth to adjacent natural teeth, called abutments. Fixed bridges are applied by either placing crowns on the abutment teeth or by bonding the artificial teeth directly to the abutment teeth. Oral functionality and appearance are important reasons for having a bridge. Dental health is the most important reason for a bridge. Teeth are designed to complement each other. Unusual stresses are placed on the gums and oral tissues when teeth are missing, causing a number of harmful effects.
Resin CompositeComposite resin is a filling material designed for aesthetic dental restorations. Formulated to resemble the color of your natural tooth, composite resin is often used for filling dental cavities or for dental bonding front teeth.
VeneersPorcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain used to recreate the natural look of teeth, while also providing strength and resilience comparable to natural tooth enamel. It is often the material of choice for those looking to make slight position alterations, or to change tooth shape, size, and/or color. To apply a veneer, a very small amount of the original tooth enamel must be removed, usually less than a millimeter. This is essential as it creates room for the porcelain veneer to fit within the mouth and most accurately restore natural tooth function while creating an even better appearance than the original tooth.
CrownsImplants are used to replace one or more missing teeth. After you have been seen by the specialist for implant surgery and the implant is fully integrated, you are ready for the restorative process. Implant crowns are very similar to the process of a dental crown. The main difference being that instead of attaching to your natural tooth, the crown is cemented onto an abutment that is attached to the implant.
Root Canal TreatmentEndodontic therapy (or root canal) is needed when the pulp of the tooth becomes inflamed or infected. That may be caused by a variety of causes such as deep decay, faulty crowns, a crack in the tooth, or several procedures performed on a tooth. Trauma can also be a cause of pulp damage, even if there are no visible chips or cracks. If pulp inflammation or infection is left untreated, it can cause pain or lead to an abscess. The procedure involves removing the living pulp from the center of the tooth and filling the pulp cavity with a warm guttapercha material.
DenturesDentures are a removable appliance used to replace some or all natural teeth on an arch and provide support for the lips and mouth. There are several types of dentures. Depending on your needs, one will be designed to fit your needs. Partials typically have a metal framework with metal clasps connected to your teeth. However, some partials are made with acrylic and reaplce all natural teeth on an arch. Whatever your needs, we will design dentures to fit them.
Tooth WhiteningIt’s no secret that a bright, white smile leaves a lasting impression. One of the most effective ways to achieve your white smile is with custom-whitening trays. Typically trays are made for both the upper and lower arch. The trays are soft and flexible making bleaching comfortable. And because you will be bleaching at home, you can whiten when its most convenient for you. With our whitening system, your teeth may be visibly whiter in one day. Teeth are noticeable whiter in one to two weeks.

Teeth CleaningPeriodontal maintenance involves a cleaning that is deeper and more extensive than a normal cleaning in the dental office. A periodontal cleaning is considered to be a therapeutic procedure, not a preventative procedure like a general prophylaxis. Patients with a history of periodontal disease need deeper cleanings because the periodontal “pockets” have formed. Plaque and tartar form in these pockets and need to be removed on a routine basis. A periodontal maintenance cleaning is often recommended every 3-4 months.
Fluoride TreatmentRegular dental visits including examinations,cleanings, x-rays, fluoride treatments, sealants and fillings are important to keep teeth healthy. For your convenience we accept cash payments or personal checks as well as all major credit cards: Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover. We deliver the finest care at the most reasonable cost to our patients, therefore payment is due at the time of service unless other arrangements have been made.
Dental SealantsSealants are a clear or tooth-colored acrylic coating that is painted on the biting surface of the tooth. They act as a preventative measure to protect the tooth against decay. They are easily applied taking only a couple minutes per tooth. Sealants protect the grooves and depressions of your teeth from food particles and plaque that brushing and flossing can’t reach.
Dental ExaminationOn your initial visit with us, we want to get to know you and your unique dental needs. We will discuss your medical history and any dental concerns that you might have. Unless you have an emergency, the first visit typically includes a personalized, thorough oral examination and a set of digital x-rays for Dr. Olson to evaluate. Upon diagnosis, we will develop a treatment plan with information and choices about how we can help you achieve your oral health goals. For more extensive cases, we may need more time to evaluate your needs and determine the best possible treatment options. In these cases, we will schedule you to return for a consultation at no additional charge.
Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
Oral SurgeryA tooth may have to be extracted for a number of reasons. Some teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed, or have advanced periodontal disease. Others may have broken where it cannot be repaired, or are poorly positioned in the mouth (such as impacted wisdom teeth). On occasion, teeth are extracted in preparation for orthodontic treatment. In many cases the removal of a tooth or teeth can lead to problems related to your chewing ability, problems with your joint in the jaw and shifting teeth, which can have a major impact on your dental health. To avoid complications following the extraction, the doctor will discuss your options for replacing the extracted tooth.
