Our Services & Procedures

General

Exams & Cleanings

We recommend a dental exam and cleaning every six months. Regular visits prevent the buildup of both tartar and plaque and allow us to catch things like cavities and gum disease while they are minor and easy to treat.

Digital X-Rays

X-rays have been used for decades to look at the health of teeth, gums, and bones in the mouth. Our digital x-ray machines take fast, clear images that can be viewed immediately.

3D Scans

Our scans give us detailed 3-dimensional images of teeth, dental appliances, soft tissue, nerve paths, and bone. They allow us to make detailed diagnoses and treatment plans.

Our Services & Procedures

Restorative

Composite Fillings

Our composite fillings are durable and match the rest of your teeth so you can keep your perfect smile.

Bridges

Bridges are an effective way of filling a gap left by a lost or removed tooth. A bridge permanently attaches to neighboring teeth and can fix issues with chewing and speaking caused by missing teeth.

Implants

Dental implants are an alternative to bridges, where instead of attaching a false tooth to the neighboring teeth, we attach it directly to the bone – just like real teeth do. Implants allow for normal flossing and leave the neighboring teeth unaltered.

Veneers

If you are unhappy with stained or chipped teeth, veneers could be exactly what you are looking for. A thin composite veneer is custom-made for each tooth and permanently applied, perfecting your smile.

Crowns

Crowns are used for a number of reasons, from preventing damage to improving cosmetics. A bad crown can fail to protect a tooth, make flossing difficult, and even cause discomfort, so make sure you are getting your dental work done by an experienced dentist.

Periodontics

Deep Cleanings

If you haven’t been brushing and flossing and have missed a few checkups, we can get you back on track. Our deep cleaning process cleans tartar and bacteria buildup deep in your gums and even near the roots of your teeth.

Gum Disease Treatment

Untreated gum disease is often painless, but can result in lost teeth and decayed bone tissue. Good brushing and flossing habits in combination with regular checkups at your dentist are the best way to keep gum disease from getting out of control.

Laser Gum Treatments

If infected gum tissue needs to be removed, we have an alternative to traditional treatment. Our minimally invasive laser treatment gets precise results with no anesthetic and faster recovery.

Periodontal Maintenance

Dental health goes beyond teeth – we keep your gums healthy as well. While we can certainly treat advanced periodontal disease, we prefer to avoid problems in the first place with regular cleanings and checkups.

Our Services & Procedures

Oral Surgery

Extractions

A tooth may need to be removed because it was severely damaged, has significant decay, or simply doesn’t fit in your mouth. After extraction, the new gap is often filled with a bridge or an implant.

Bone Grafts

Bone grafts are a key part of a long-term implant solution if you have lost a tooth or had one removed. This is a procedure that requires skill and expertise, and Dr. Sorhus has plenty of both!

Sinus Lifts

A sinus lift is a surgical procedure that thickens the bone in the upper jaw and is most commonly performed in preparation for an implant (though they are not always required).

Root Canals

Root canals are a procedure in which damaged or infected material deep inside the tooth is removed and replaced with a filling. Root canals have a bad reputation, but technology and techniques have come a long way, and they are often preferable alternatives to extraction.

Dentures

Conventional

Conventional dentures are removable prosthetics that replace missing teeth. They can be full (replacing all the teeth on either the upper or lower jaw) or partial (replacing a series of teeth). Dentures are not only cosmetic – they can restore the ability to chew solid foods and improve your pronunciation.

Implant Supported

Implant supported dentures attach securely to implants, providing a sturdier fit than conventional dentures. Implant supported dentures are also referred to as Hybrid dentures.
