Our Dental Services

Quality and affordable dentistry

Dental Fillings

We provide all types of fillings. From standard fillings to natural looking tooth colored fillings. Ask us about your options!

Dental Fillings

Fillings are done to remove decay, and replace the affected tooth structure. Now days most teeth are treated with bonded tooth colored composite resin fillings. Caught early enough, cavities can be treated easily and painlessly. If not treated decay can lead to tooth pain and/or infection, and the tooth would need root canal treatment or extraction.

Routine Dental Exam & Check Up

We want you to visit us twice a year. We will perform a thorough cleaning and examine your teeth and gums for signs of tooth decay, and other problems.

Routine Dental Exam & Check Up

Routine check ups & cleanings allow us to keep your teeth in the best shape possible. Performing the check up at 6 month intervals allows us to spot problems and correct them before they can turn into bigger problems. Yearly X-Rays can help us find very common issues like calcium resorption which, if left undetected, can result in adult tooth loss.

Tooth Extraction

Although we want your teeth to last a lifetime, sometimes tooth extraction cannot be avoided. If something like this happens, we can help.

Tooth Extraction

The extraction of a tooth can be required for many reasons. Things like trauma, infection, over crowding, and gum disease. We can perform this procedure for these and many other reasons. We will explain your options and any alternatives if they are available in your case. If you have questions or would like to talk about your options - just ask.

Root Canals

A root canal is then performed to clean out the infected tooth pulp, and disinfect the canals of the tooth. Once the infection is resolved, the canal(s) are filled in to prevent any further infection.

Root Canal Treatment

Root canals are sometimes offered for infected teeth as an alternative to an extraction. This allows you to save your natural tooth after the tooth decay has infected the nerve of the tooth. In some cases, once the nerve and cavity are removed, the tooth could be more prone to fracture and in this case a crown is recommended. Dr. Lartigue may recommend that a specialist, or Endodontist, perform the procedure.

Implants

Implants are a permanent solution that has the advantages over bridge work. Implants don't stress the surrounding teeth for support. Also, if they wear out, another can simply be replaced on the shaft.

Tooth Implant Proceedure

In this procedure, a small titanium shaft is surgically implanted into the bone and allowed to set. The bone grows around it forming a tight connection, which additionally slows or stops the bone loss that occurs when the root of a natural tooth is missing. Once the implant is firmly set in the mouth, the dentist then works to attach the replacement tooth onto the top of the shaft. We can refer you to a specialist we work with for this procedure.

Whitening

This is the procedure of making teeth whiter, and therefore more attractive. Our office uses several methods: Zoom!, passive tray whitening, and professional strength white strips.

Teeth Whitening Treatments

Zoom! is a revolutionary tooth whitening procedure. It’s safe effective and fast, very fast. In just over an hour, your teeth will be dramatically whiter. With the tray method, impressions are made, then a tray. Gels are used for several hours or overnight and the process takes 3-4 weeks and achieve the same results. Professional strength white strips are another option we offer.
