Art of Dentistry Services

The dental group has been awarded with recognition from their peers for many consecutive years and have been credited for their holistic  approach to cosmetic dentistry. If you’re curious about what type of cosmetic services they provide, here’s a quick overview: 

General Dentistry

While the Art of Dentistry team is well versed in complex, cosmetic procedures they also provide general dentistry services as well, including: 

  • Alignment. Both traditional braces and Invisalign can be used to  improve alignment, jaw discomfort, and overall aesthetics. 
  • Repair. For teeth with varying levels of cavities or decay, or injured/cracked teeth in need of repair, fillings are the most common avenue; however, sometimes more extensive repair is needed. In those cases, dental crowns may be used. For teeth with more pervasive damage or decay, crowns have a wide range of use, and are often the go-to for those with: 
    • Large Fillings
    • Excessive Wear
    • Cracked Teeth
    • Broken Cusps
    • Dental Implants
    • Root Canals
  • Extractions. When a tooth is either damaged/decayed beyond repair, or is impacted (such as the case with wisdom teeth) they typically need to be removed.

Sedation Dentistry

If you get a little nervous about going to the dentist, you’re not alone. In fact, about 36% of Americans report they’re afraid to sit in the dentist chair. The good news is, the Art of Dentistry  team is well versed in handling dental anxiety. They provide a reassuring, calm environment with options like sedation-assisted procedures in order to help ease dental anxiety and fear of needles. This is a great option not only for generalized anxiety, but those with a sensitive gag reflex or a low pain tolerance.

Implant Dentistry

Loose fitting dentures or missing teeth? No problem — The Art of Dentistry team has a solution! Dental implants are commonly used to improve issues that come from ill-fitting dentures, or the discomfort of missing teeth. This is a multi-step, customized service which requires several different phases and procedures, including: 

  • Pre-surgery evaluation and medical history review 
  • Personalized treatment plan
  • Bone grafting
  • Implant insertion
