Your Comfort Is Always a Priority
For more than a decades, our team of dedicated professionals has been working hard to change perceptions about what dental care can be.
Our goal is to give every patient the best experience possible. That starts when helping all people — including patients who struggle with dental anxiety — feel like they can relax at our office.
If you haven’t been to the dentist in years, remember that it’s important to be patient with yourself as well. Anxiety doesn’t disappear in a single visit, but going to the dentist can get easier with every visit with people you know and trust.
We offer an array of comfort options:
- Blankets and pillows to keep you warm and cozy
- Complimentary beverages
- Television to provide a distraction during your care
- Private rooms
- Dental sedation
You also have the option of scheduling longer appointments. This way you can feel more at ease asking to take a break whether you are getting a routine cleaning or a more complex procedure.
Better Care With Training & Technology
Our doctors are graduates of the Medical College of Georgia School of Dentistry and the Virginia Commonwealth University at The Medical College of Virginia. Yet all of them know that their dental education never ends.
Drs. Travis and Cameron Watson and Dr. Laura Bowersox all make continuing education a priority to keep up with the latest advances in modern dentistry.
That includes knowing about the latest technology to make oral care easier, more efficient, and more effective for patients like you. A few examples of this technology include:
- The Wand — Many patients have a fear of needles. The Wand is tools provides a carefully-controlled and pain-free way to deliver local anesthetic when needed.
- Dental Lasers — Our DEKA CO2 and diode lasers give us a better way of treating gum problems without surgery.
- 3M True Definition Scanner — With digital impressions, you won’t have to worry about gagging while biting down on bad-tasting goop.
- Intraoral Cameras — These tiny tools let us get a close-up view of your mouth from a variety of angles. This can help us spot decay, gum disease, and other problems in the earliest stages.
We also have the equipment to create retainers and athletic mouthguard right here in our office. These are custom-designed to fit your mouth making them more comfortable to wear.
Preventing Problems Is Our Focus
Did you know that more than half of kids in the U.S. have had at least one cavity by their 11th birthday? Did you know that more than 90 percent of Americans will develop tooth decay? Did you know that nearly half of Americans over 30 years old have some form of periodontitis?
Oral health problems are common, but they don’t have to be as common as they are.
We want to work with you to help you prevent decay and gum infections. Routine dental check-ups (along with your daily brushing flossing) can help you prevent or catch small problems so they don’t have a chance to become bigger ones.
Our team is more than ready, willing, and able to help you get rid of plaque and tartar. You also should feel welcome to ask us questions about things you can do at home to improve your oral health.
It makes us happy when our patients have healthy smiles.
We Can Rebuild Your Smile
At the same time, we know that life happens.
Lost teeth aren’t just the result of untreated cavities and severe gum disease. Accidents and injuries cause broken, cracked, and knocked-out teeth almost daily.
If any of these problems happen to you or someone you love, you will be glad to know that we offer full-mouth reconstruction at our practice. Whether you need to replace part of a tooth or every tooth in your mouth, you can rebuild your smile at our office.
Our team has an extensive training and experience placing dental implants, which replace the roots of lost teeth. They also make restorations like crowns, bridges, and dentures feel and function practically as well as natural teeth.
No matter how bad you think your mouth is, we are confident that we can help you. Let us show you what’s possible and give you a new reason to smile.
Give Yourself a Boost
In addition to our many other services, we also offer cosmetic treatments.
It’s normal for people’s teeth to show signs of wear and tear as they get older. Your teeth may be a little worn down in places. They may be yellower or darker than you would like. Maybe your teeth aren’t as straight as you would like them to be.
Whether you want to make a small change or you want a total smile makeover, we’re here for you, too.
You should feel good about sharing your smile in person, in pictures, and online. Just let us know what you want to change, and we can help you find the right service for your smile.
