Bleeding is usually a sign of a problem. When gums bleed, the cause usually stems from brushing too hard or from early-stage gum disease, called gingivitis. We can consult with you on the proper toothbrush and pressure for safe, effective daily oral care. If your gums show signs of gum disease, we may recommend a deep hygiene treatment to alleviate your symptoms and promote good periodontal health. Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss for American adults, and it has been linked to many overall health conditions, including stroke, heart attack, respiratory problems, and dementia. Untreated, gum disease can significantly damage your health, so call for an assessment now. We’ll help you keep your teeth and gums healthy for life!
Implant restorations are a safe alternative to bridges, partials, or full dentures. They look, feel, and function like natural teeth because of a titanium anchor attached to the jawbone. Once the dental implants are secured, your dentist will attach handcrafted, permanent crowns or your prosthetic to the posts. The restorations will match your natural teeth and blend seamlessly with your smile. The life of the implant depends on your age, oral status, and personal hygiene. With proper maintenance, they last most people a lifetime.
When compared to traditional radiography, digital X-rays emit 80% less radiation. Detailed images are immediately available for viewing and can be electronically transferred to insurance companies and specialists, as well. Digital X-rays require no hazardous developing chemicals, so they’re earth friendly!

First of all, congratulations on your wise decision to prioritize dental healthcare. Your mouth is a big part of your overall health, quality of life, and self-esteem. We’ll never judge you. Instead, we’ll help you by addressing your oral problems, explaining treatment options, then scheduling a plan of action that suits your schedule and your budget.
Well, we’d like to start by evaluating your oral health, existing smile, and discussing your idea of a spectacular smile. We may suggest porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, replacement teeth, and replacing metal dental work with tooth-colored fillings or crowns. In addition, your smile may benefit from some artistic bonding or Zoom! Whitening. Call to schedule a complimentary cosmetic consultation, and together, we’ll determine the best road to your ideal smile.
Chronic headaches may be a symptom of a misaligned bite, bruxism (grinding), or TMJ disorder. Dr. Khan will carefully examine your occlusion (bite), jaw, head, and neck to determine the underlying causes of your pain. Oftentimes, we can correct the problem with a custom nightguard. Call our office if you have more questions about headache relief with non-surgical therapies.
Absolutely. We enjoy creating gorgeous, healthy smiles for patients of any age. If we find that your child – or you, for that matter – would benefit from seeing a specialist, we’ll refer to a trusted colleague. Some children deal with dental appointments better at a pedodontist’s office, that’s what a children’s dentist is called. We also refer patients who have extensive dental problems, like advanced periodontitis or problematic root canals, to specialists for optimal care. As a general dentist office, our preventive, cosmetic, and restorative services include treatments suitable for patients of all ages.
We’ve partnered with CareCredit, a trusted name in third-party financing, to make dentistry more affordable. CareCredit offers revolving credit, low monthly payments, and no interest for up to 18 months for patients who qualify. Visit the CareCredit website to fill out an online application.
