Breaking or knocking out a tooth, experiencing a toothache or unusual jaw pain, or losing a dental restoration can come as a surprise. In these situations, a visit to the emergency room or your primary care physician probably is not the best option for immediate pain relief.
At Lane Family Dental, we offer professional teeth whitening with in-office and take-home systems, so you can feel confident about your dazzling smile! After years of consuming coffee, wine, and tea, a person’s teeth will start to discolor. Using tobacco makes stains even worse.
Dental crowns are our most commonly performed procedure. A crown is necessary when a dental filling will not sufficiently treat a cavity, or when a tooth is cracked. Dr. Lane also offers partial crowns, called inlays and onlays, which provide the most minimally invasive option in some cases.
Imagine loving your smile, wanting to show it off at every opportunity. You’d look more attractive, happy, and youthful. A study by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry found that people with a nice smile are thought to be more intelligent and successful, as well.
SLEEP APNEA TREATMENT
Snoring can disturb sleep for both the snorer and anyone trying to rest within earshot of the loud, repetitive noise. Fortunately, Dr. Lane offers a non-invasive night guard to stop snoring and treat obstructive sleep apnea, a potentially serious condition that’s often undiagnosed.
ROOT CANAL THERAPY
Root canal therapy (RCT) is a procedure that relieves pain and allows the patient to keep the damaged tooth, rather than having it extracted. Dr. Lane uses microtools for a precision procedure and offers anesthesia and sedation options for optimal patient comfort.
Wisdom teeth often require extraction, and dead or irreparably infected teeth must be removed to protect a patient’s health. Dr. Lane and our team want you to keep all of your natural teeth throughout life when it’s in the best interest of your overall health.
Sedation dentistry is used during treatment to induce a state of calm and relaxation. While this is often referred to as sleep dentistry, it is important to note that patients are not unconscious. Instead, these sedatives can alleviate anxiety and help patients achieve a restful.
A missing tooth, a few missing teeth, and poorly fitting dentures – all of these conditions make a person feel self-conscious and frustrated. Health may also suffer as the ability to chew foods decreases.
