General Dental Care to Maintain the Health of Your Smile

Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is a common and potentially serious sleep disorder often characterized by loud snoring, difficulty staying asleep, and sleep that is not restful. If you are diagnosed with mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea, Dr. Art Carpenter can fit you with an oral appliance. The Thornton Adjustable Positioner (TAP®) is a simple, patient-friendly treatment option for snoring and sleep apnea.

Family Dentistry

As a family dentistry practice, we treat patients of all ages. We are comfortable handling the specific needs of children, who may be apprehensive about receiving treatment. We are also accustomed to treating the particular needs of older adults. With our comprehensive range of cosmetic, restorative, and general dentistry services, we can help you maintain optimal oral health.

Periodontal Care

If you are experiencing the symptoms of gum disease, such as tender, inflamed, bleeding gums, we can perform periodontal treatment to improve your oral health. Perio Protect® trays and ARESTIN® are simple yet effective treatments for gum disease. These treatments, along with a professional dental cleaning, can reduce the amount of harmful bacteria in the mouth and restore the health of your gums.

Preventive Dentistry

We provide comprehensive preventive dentistry services, including hygienic cleanings, sealants, and fluoride treatment. Professional fluoride treatments contain a higher level of fluoride than over-the-counter toothpastes and mouth rinses. We also offer oral cancer screenings, which involve a manual and visual head and neck exam, and use of the advanced VELscope® system, to check for abnormalities.

TMJ Disorder Treatment

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder involves problems with the chewing muscles and joints that connect the lower jaw to the skull. Symptoms of TMJ disorder include headaches, neck and shoulder pain, and ringing in the ears. Night guards like the NTI-tss Plus™ relieve symptoms of the condition by repositioning the jaw and suppressing muscle contraction during sleep. These night guards are comfortable, and can be custom fitted for maximum effectiveness.

Mouthguards and Nightguards

Our office has lab-grade machinery to custom craft sports mouthguards, as well as nightguards for patients who grind their teeth. Mouthguards prevent more than 200,000 injuries per year. Nightguards, on the other hand, protect teeth during sleep, and can alleviate the effects of teeth grinding, including headaches, jaw soreness, and painful teeth. We also offer Essix® appliances, clear aligners which provide temporary function before patients' implants are restored.

Sedation Dentistry

We provide oral sedation for patients who experience a high level of fear and anxiety during visits to the dentist. Oral sedation refers to the use of commonly prescribed sedation medications, called benzodiazepines, to help patients relax. Combined with the gentle approach of a skilled dentist, oral sedation is an effective tool to help patients get the dental care they need. Patients can have a comfortable, relaxed experience, and avoid the problems that often result from delaying timely treatment.

Tooth Extractions

Tooth extractions are performed to correct oral health problems. We may recommend tooth extraction for overcrowded teeth or teeth suffering from a severe infection. Dr. Carpenter employs the latest technology and a gentle surgical approach to ensure that your extraction is quick and comfortable. Our approach preserves surrounding bone and tissue for optimal oral health. We can also recommend the best method to replace missing teeth according to your individual needs.

Root Canal Therapy

With root canal therapy, Dr. Carpenter can treat your infected tooth without extracting it. Modern dental techniques make root canal therapy similar to getting a filling, and you can expect a comfortable experience both during and after your procedure. Treatment involves removal of the diseased tooth pulp, and cleaning and sealing the pulp chamber canals. Root canal therapy can relieve pain, and restore normal biting and chewing functions.

Advanced Oral Cancer Screening

As part of every checkup, Dr. Carpenter performs an oral cancer screening with a VELscope®. This advanced technology uses natural tissue fluorescence to visualize any abnormalities within the mouth. As with other types of the disease, early detection is the key to successful treatment and recovery, and Dr. Carpenter wants to ensure the health of all of our patients. The screening is accomplished quickly during your regular exam and there is no pain or discomfort.

Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride treatments are an important part of dental health as they are of the most effective ways to prevent tooth decay. Protection against tooth decay and cavities means that fluoride treatments help you avoid costly, invasive dental treatments in the future. Dr. Carpenter and Dr. Jobalia will carefully inspect you or your child's teeth to determine the best treatment plan and ensure healthy teeth for years to come.
