Comprehensive Family Dentistry

We offer dental care in every area of family dentistry so you can maintain a healthy, comfortable smile!

Preventive dental care – The foundation of our dental practice is providing preventive dental care so you can maintain the health of your smile.

  • Dental exams
  • Diagnostic x-rays
  • Professional dental cleanings
  • Fluoride treatments
  • Sealants
  • Nightguards
  • Athletic mouthguards

We design preventive treatment plans based on your unique needs. We will discuss any dental conditions you may currently have as well as ways to improve your oral health. Preventive dentistry is a great way to avoid more serious oral health concerns in the future.

Restorative dentistry – Most adults will need at least one dental restoration throughout their lifetime. While fluoridated water and effective dental treatment have improved the health of our teeth, few of us can escape at least one filling or crown. That's because our teeth do a tough job and while they are strong, they are not indestructible. When we can repair a tooth and prolong its life, that is usually the best way to protect your oral health.

  • Tooth-colored fillings
  • Dental crowns
  • Inlays
  • Onlays
  • Veneers

Our restorations are made to last, and we have a quick turnaround time! Dr. Alano is conservative in his approach to dentistry and always tries to preserve as much natural tooth structure as possible.

Emergency dentistry – Dental emergencies always seem to happen at the worst time! Don't worry! We won't leave you with a painful tooth or lost restoration. In most cases, we can treat dental emergencies on the same day. That way you can get back to your busy schedule, feeling comfortable again.

Teeth replacement options – We do our best to save your natural teeth whenever possible. When it is necessary to remove a damaged or diseased tooth, we provide you with all your solutions so you can make a decision that works for you. Dr. Alano will discuss the pros and cons of each treatment option and help you make the best choice. You can count on looking great when we complete your smile because each restoration is a custom design made just for you.

  • Dental implants
  • Bridges
  • Partial dentures
  • Complete dentures

Cosmetic dentistry – It's natural to want to look your best. We offer a full range of cosmetic dentistry treatment options for you to choose from.

  • Teeth whitening
  • Tooth-colored fillings
  • Porcelain crowns
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Full smile makeovers

Treatment for Teeth Grinding and Jaw Pain

If you suffer from jaw pain when you wake up in the morning, you might have a clenching and grinding habit, also known as bruxism. Other signs of a clenching and grinding habit include:

  • Headaches
  • Migraines
  • Neck, shoulder, or back pain
  • Numbness in the face or fingers
  • Clicking, popping, or locking of your jaw joints
  • Teeth not coming together correctly

You don't have to live in pain, which can ruin your quality of life and feel exhausting! We offer TMJ therapy and relief from the symptoms of bruxism by creating custom splints, also known as nightguards. Our nightguards not only relieve the pain of clenching and grinding, but they also protect your teeth from unnecessary wear and help your jaw relax.

Treatment for Sleep Apnea 

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a serious medical condition that puts your health at risk. Loud snoring is often a sign that you might suffer from sleep apnea.

For many patients, the use of a CPAP (continuous positive air pressure) machine is just not feasible. We offer an alternative by treating snoring and sleep apnea with a specially designed oral appliance. It works by gently opening your airway so that you can get a better night's sleep. Oral appliance therapy, or OAT, is an American Academy of Sleep Medicine-approved treatment for OSA and snoring.

For many patients, this provides great results!

Orthodontics for the Whole Family

A straight smile is a healthy smile! We can help you improve your self-confidence or address misalignment with the use of orthodontics. We provide orthodontic treatment for the whole family.

  • Early interceptive orthodontics
  • Braces for kids and teens
  • Cosmetic orthodontics for adults
