TMJ/TMD Treatment

If you suffer from headaches or pain, clicking or popping while chewing, there may be problems with your temporomandibular joint (or TMJ). Dr. Azita Vakili is considered one of the foremost clinicians in the country for TMJ/TMD treatment. Call us today to schedule a consultation and start living a pain‑free life!

Full mouth reconstruction with All-on-4® Implant
Supported Dentures

Do you wear dentures or have a mouth full of missing or failed teeth? Traditional dentures are not attached to anything and simply rest on the gums. Fortunately, full mouth reconstruction with implant dentures allows the dentures to be fixed to improve fit and increase chewing ability. As an added benefit, the implants prevent the steady bone loss caused by traditional dentures. Dentures attached to implants give a more youthful appearance and enhance chewing ability.

Oral Conscious Sedation Dentistry

Oral conscious sedation dentistry is an excellent treatment for patients with extensive dental needs, or who are concerned about anxiety, difficulty getting numb, or sensitive teeth.

No intravenous needles are used. Nitrous oxide inhalation may be used in conjunction with the sedative to enhance the therapeutic effect. Due to the relaxing effects of the medication, patients must have a friend or family member bring them to and from the dental office.

Our office can also arrange traditional anesthesia for patients who prefer that as an option.

Ceramic Dental Implants

Experience peace of mind and proven strength for a successful ceramic implant with our two piece Nobel Pearl implant. Engineered for a broad range of single to multiple units, Nobel Pearl is reversible and has a cement free internal connection.This revolutionary 100% metal-free bioesthetic ceramic implant provides an alternative to a traditional titanium implant. Supporting the same function as traditional dental implants, NobelPearl implants just look better due to having natural soft-tissue& appearance.

Ceramic implant benefits:

  • Natural all white for optimal aesthetics
  • Excellent soft-tissue attachment and low inflammatory response
  • Zirconia promotes a natural harmony with soft tissue unlike traditional metal implants
  • Zirconia has a low plaque affinity which aids in oral hygiene

Advanced Prosthodontics

With at least three more years of training than general dentists, prosthodontists are highly experienced with diagnosing, planning, and executing restorative and cosmetic treatments. Dr. Vakili has advanced training in prosthodontists and would love to meet with you and discuss your needs. If you need dentures, implants, to fill gaps in teeth or have one or more missing teeth, please contact us.

Implant Dentistry

Implant Dentistry Learn More

Dental implants are a great option for replacing missing teeth, improving chewing ability, eliminating bridges, and replacing dentures.

Several implants may provide a base for a series of artificial teeth known as a fixed bridge. Implants can even be used to secure a full set of removable dentures for people who have no remaining natural teeth.

Over $2,000 Savings!

For a limited time, our office is charging only $1997.00 for implant placement and final restoration. This offer is for new patients only. Limited to 20 patients per month.

Regenerative Services

Regenerative Services Learn More

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)/Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) are made by drawing a small amount of patient blood and spinning it in a centrifuge. There are no blood additives or chemicals. Only extracts from the patients blood drawn just before the procedure.

PRP promotes tissue regeneration and contains critical growth factors that aid in speeding up the healing process. PRP treatment can reduce bleeding and swelling, enhance soft tissue healing and promotes bone regeneration

PRF is placed into spaces in the jaw bone during surgery. This promotes faster healing, causes fewer infections, prevents undesired tissue growth and allows for the rapid growth of high-quality bone tissue.

CEREC® Same-Day-Crowns

CEREC® Same‑Day Crowns Learn More

CEREC® is the world's first and most advanced same-day dental restoration system available today. Say goodbye to messy impressions, temporary crowns or bridges, and follow-up visits for placement. CEREC® simplifies the process dramatically - saving our patients time and the inconvenience of multiple visits!

In just a single visit 3D images of your teeth will be taken and our team will design a custom crown using CEREC's innovative software. Once the restoration is designed and milled from these images the crown is bonded and just a few minutes later your new tooth will look and function just as nature intended.

Invisalign® Orthodontics

Invisalign® Orthodontics Learn More

These "invisible" aligners are the latest in orthodontic technology for adults and teens. Straight teeth and a revitalized smile no longer need to come from a mouth full of unattractive wire and bracket braces. Enhancing self-esteem and physical confidence, invisible braces offer an esthetic and barely visible alternative to conventional wire/bracket braces. Get the smile you've always wanted with Invisalign® Orthodontics.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic Dentistry Learn More

Cosmetic dentistry is one of the most cost-effective ways to improve your appearance. A beautiful, bright, healthy smile can increase self confidence and overall life satisfaction.

Many regular dental treatments can be performed using porcelain and composite materials instead of metal. Modern tooth colored restorations are virtually invisible compared to traditional silver or gold. We offer smile-whitening, porcelain veneers, tooth colored crowns, fillings and more to patients looking to brighten up their smiles.

Same-Day Restorations

Same-Day Restorations Learn More

Porcelain veneers are very thin porcelain pieces that are custom made to adhere directly to the front of teeth without grinding or shaving. Transform your smile without drilling on your natural teeth!

Using our CAD/CAM imaging system and our CEREC® machine we can provide porcelain veneers in just a single visit! Same day veneers provide patients who want to address a number of cosmetic imperfections the opportunity to achieve instant and gratifying results.

Crowns & Bridges

Crowns & Bridges Learn More

Protect and keep badly decayed or fractured teeth while maintaining a beautiful smile. Made to perfectly match the shape and shade of your other teeth, they’re durable, strong, and undetectable.

Crowns should be placed before the tooth is so decayed that it may fracture. This can often help prevent the expense of root canal therapy in the future. If a tooth is too damaged to have a crown applied, a porcelain bridge may be a good alternative.

Composite Fillings

Composite Fillings Learn More

The common silver filling contains mercury. Our doctors use the highest-quality biocompatible, tooth-colored restorations to create healthy, beautiful smiles. Since the composite material adheres directly to the tooth enamel, less preparation of the tooth is required before using it. This means it is more durable and provides a more natural‑looking result.

Smile Whitening

Smile Whitening Learn More

Many everyday things like coffee, tea and wine can significantly dull teeth. Smile-whitening enables us to significantly brighten your smile for that dazzling white smile you deserve.

Plastic whitening trays will be made from models of your teeth. You will then place a special whitening gel in each tray and wear the trays in your mouth for several hours per day. (Many patients wear their trays after dinner and before bed.) A significant change in tooth color is usually seen in just four to six weeks.

Sleep Apnea Treatment

Sleep Apnea Learn More

Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when the airway completely collapses, blocking airflow into the lungs. The harder one tries to breathe, the tighter the airway seals. This airway obstruction persists until the brain partially awakens the person, unconsciously closing the jaw and returning the tongue and throat to a normal position.

We offer effective, nonsurgical relief from sleep apnea and other sleep‑related disorders — including snoring. Ask us how you can get the restful, healthy sleep you’ve been missing.

Periodontal Therapy

Periodontal Therapy Learn More

Gum disease is treated by carefully removing the bacteria and substances that form in the pockets around the teeth. The removal of this material occurs on a microscopic level and requires great skill. Our dental team has had advanced training to effectively remove all of the bacteria.
