When Adult Teeth Do Not Form Behind Baby Teeth

Once in a while a human being grows into adulthood without their adult teeth coming in and pushing out their baby teeth, which is a genetic condition. This is not a situation where the adult teeth have developed but have not descended; it is a situation where the adult teeth have not developed and only […]

Dental Implants Have Tremendous Success Rates

These days implant procedures are much more predictable than the results were ten or fifteen years ago. Now we have a 98% success rate with dental implant placement, which makes patients much more comfortable going into the procedure than they could have been with the lack of predictability years ago. Patients sometimes hear about a […]


Patient Receives Replacement Tooth Immediately

Placing an implant successfully in the esthetic zone in the front of the mouth depends greatly on the dentist’s ability to properly match the color of the surrounding teeth. We do this on a regular basis—but one story stands out because it was so timely in many ways. A woman in her 50’s was at […]

Dentures Replaced with Implants and Fixed Porcelain Prosthesis

A remarkable story of a patient in her older years is that of a woman about 76 years of age who came in with dentures that were literally broken in half. She had been attempting to keep them together with denture glue, which of course was not sufficient for living a comfortable lifestyle. This patient […]

Digital Dentistry and Regrowing Teeth with Stem Cells

One of the exciting innovations that is on the horizon in dentistry is digital dentistry—taking impressions of a patient’s dentition with a scanner and being able to make a tooth from that scan right away. It really is a wonderful time to be a dentist and I love presenting patients with new, excellent options as […]

Having volunteer instructors spend their time with me when I was a dental student added a great deal to my education experience and skill […]

Replacing a Missing Tooth is Accomplished in Phases

Patients are understandably a bit nervous about the prospect of having teeth extracted, and there are several things I do as a dentist to help them remain comfortable throughout the entire procedure. All of us here in the practice have the patient’s comfort as our highest priority, so we offer words of comfort in addition […]

Dental X-Rays: Everything is Digital

Patients are sometimes apprehensive about dental x-rays. These days we no longer use the film x-rays which produced levels of radiation that were concerning for health reasons years ago. We currently use digital x-rays that produce about one-tenth the amount of radiation as the old film x-rays, which were our only option for many years. […]

Infection Control in Dentistry Today

In dentistry, protocols to control infection are mandated, and often because they are so routinely practiced the patient may not be aware that those protocols are taking place around them. Technically the mouth is the dirtiest place in the human body. Wearing gloves helps the doctor and staff by protecting our hands from a variety […]

Root Canal Treatments Should No Longer Be Painful

In dentistry there are some myths I would like to dispel. One of the most common myths is that everything that a dentist does will hurt. Fortunately, I am delighted to say, the anesthetics we use daily in dentistry combined with very thoughtful and well-practiced injection techniques result in the patient feeling little or nothing […]
