Dental ImplantsPlenty. The worst offender is smoking. Study after study shows that in the face of an established periodontal condition, smokers have worse gums. Not only do they have deeper pockets and more bone loss, but they dont heal as well as non-smokers do. This is especially germane when periodontists and oral surgeons place dental implants in smokers. Smokers can successfully have implants, but they tend to heal slowly, have more infections, and experience more problems with their implants.
BridgesTooth loss, significant decay and fractures can dramatically affect your appearance and make you look older. Today`s crowns and bridges are more beautiful than ever before. You do not have to worry about metal line showing if your gums recede. We can strengthen your weak tooth from breaking with a natural look.
VeneersGenasci & Stigers Family Dentistry places Porcelain Veneers. Click on the categories listed below to read answers to your most frequently asked questions.
CrownsIt`s a dentist-fabricated replacement of one or more cusps of your tooth. We provide this valuable service because we feel they are much more conservative than a full crown.
Root Canal TreatmentThe widespread use of fluoride has made the surface of teeth so hard the process of dental decay has changed. Cavities are smaller and harder to diagnose. Bacteria can penetrate seemingly intact enamel appearing only as a dark stain. If left untreated, the bacteria can reach the softer dentin layer spreading rapidly with the possibility of reaching the pulp chamber leading to a root canal.
DenturesBesides helping us look good, teeth are important for a host of other reasons. For one, strong firm teeth enable us to chew our food more comfortably. Properly masticated food makes for better digestion. Everyone likes a healthy, bright smile. First impressions count. Besides making you look and feel good, teeth help us to speak clearly. People who have had the misfortune of losing all their teeth and wearing dentures, can have difficulty speaking. They also cant eat all the things they want, are often self-conscious about their "choppers," complain that they cant taste their food as well as they used to, and may even have trouble breathing when they sleep. Those are enough reasons to keep our teeth, and the best way to start is with good oral hygiene.
Tooth WhiteningOur at-home bleaching provides you with dazzling results...all while you sleep at night (or for 1-2 hours during the day).

Teeth CleaningThe American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and the American Dental Association recommend a dental check-up at least twice a year for most children and adults. However, some children and adults require more frequent visits due to increased risk of tooth decay or a need for more frequent dental cleanings due to braces, poor oral hygiene and increased risk of periodontal disease. Your dentist will evaluate you or your child's specific needs and recommend a dental prevention regimen.
Dental ExaminationAll patient exams in my office are performed with the intraoral camera allowing you to view your teeth and identify any problem areas. It is the size of a dental mirror and enables us to diagnose problems in their earliest stages such as...
