When our patients do need treatment procedures, we are proud to offer top-quality, affordable services in a caring and compassionate manner. Using the latest technology, quality materials, and proven methods, we strive to provide patients with comfortable, long-lasting, esthetic dentistry. Follow each link to read official ADA information about the service you’re interested in.
These restorations are highly esthetic and contain no metal or mercury. Tooth-colored fillings are placed in one appointment in the office. They’re light cured and our patients are able to eat and function normally very quickly after placement.
Tooth-colored metal-free zirconia and ceramic, as well as porcelain fused to metal (PFM) and full gold options are available. We utilize only American dental laboratories, and our patients can rest assured that crowns contain only the finest materials.
Dental implants are a state-of-the-art way to replace a single or several missing teeth. Dr. Price’s experience includes implant-supported crowns and bridges, as well as implant-retained overdentures and partial dentures. Once your implant is restored, we can also provide long-term implant maintenance.
When a tooth needs to be extracted, we are often able to do so in the office. Otherwise, we are able to facilitate referral to a qualified specialist.
We offer numerous cosmetic dentistry procedures, including in-office and at-home bleaching, and porcelain and composite veneers. We are glad to consult about options to improve the look of your smile — just ask!
Periodontal disease, or periodontitis, is a bacterial infection that causes deterioration of the gums and bone that support the teeth. If left untreated, periodontal disease can lead to loosening and loss of teeth; it has also been linked to numerous other health conditions, including diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. We are able to provide numerous therapies for periodontal disease, including deep cleaning (scaling and root planing) and delivery of localized chemotherapeutic/antibiotic agents to the gums.
We are pleased to offer several options to our edentulous or partially edentulous patients. We provide partial dentures (used to replace one or more teeth), immediate dentures (used as patients are transitioning from non-restorable teeth to dentures), conventional dentures (used when patients are already edentulous), and implant-retained dentures (used when several dental implants can help to hold in a denture or partial denture). Highly esthetic options, with and without metal framework can be fabricated.
We are happy to provide treatment for every member of your family. Please see our pediatric dentistry section for more information!
Through evaluation of your occlusion, or “bite”, we may determine that you can benefit from treatment with an occlusal splint or nightguard. This device can be used in conjunction with other treatments to make your bite more comfortable, and may help relieve symptoms commonly known as “TMD” or “TMJ”. We also may facilitate referral to a specialist for treatment of these symptoms.
We provide thorough diagnostics and recommend root canal therapy in many cases. We are able to facilitate referral to a qualified specialist for this procedure; patients then return to our office to have a final restoration (filling or crown) placed on the tooth.
Dr. Price treats many orthodontic cases right in the office! She is experienced in several clear aligner systems, including Invisalign, Clear Correct, and Align. We also work with several area orthodontists to treat our patients.
Our patients’ comfort is important to us, and we are glad to accommodate emergencies. We do our best to take care of emergencies while being mindful of the schedules of our regularly appointed patients; please call as early in the day as possible if you are experiencing emergency symptoms so that we may accommodate you as quickly as possible.
