The best way to maintain a healthy smile is to take care of it! We encourage our patients to brush twice a day and floss daily to keep those pearly whites as healthy as possible. However, we also recommend our patients come in at least twice a year for routine cleanings and checkups. We provide cleanings for both children and adults, removing any plaque and tartar that have developed. We also examine the smile for any signs of developing cavities and for symptoms of oral cancer and periodontal disease.
Other preventative services we provide for children and adults include:
Snore Guards & Night Guards
Treatment of TMJ
Athletic Mouth Guards
Whether your smile has been affected by decay or trauma, we offer services to help restore beauty and health to your grin!
Crowns & Bridges
A crown is a “cap” that we place over a tooth that needs some support after breakage or cavity removal. We use CEREC® technology to provide patients with same-day crowns.
A bridge is used to replace multiple missing teeth. Crowns are bonded onto the teeth on either side of the gap and are used to secure a prosthetic tooth into place.
Veneers help to completely transform the smile by covering up damaged teeth. They are porcelain shells, custom-created to match your desired look, that are bonded onto the front of your existing teeth. Veneers can be used to restore the strength and appearance of a smile affected by discoloration, chips, cracks, gaps, and other imperfections.
For those with missing teeth, we offer a wide range of dental implant options. A dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically placed in the gums, in the gap where a tooth used to be. The post is given a few months to meld to the jaw bone, creating a secure base for the restoration. The restoration may be a crown, bridge, partial or denture, depending on the number of teeth missing and their location in the smile. Dr. Orn will work with you to determine which option will work best for you, to give you a smile you feel confident in!
A root canal can alleviate the pain in a tooth with an infection that has reached the nerve. During the procedure, Dr. Orn removes the infected pulp and disinfects the tooth to eliminate any remaining bacteria. Then, the tooth is sealed and topped with a crown to ensure it is protected from further damage.
Dr. Orn performs several oral surgical procedures, including extractions. Whether you need a wisdom tooth extracted or a tooth removed because of severe decay or breakage, Dr. Orn will make the procedure as comfortable as possible for you.

What are the negative impacts of dry mouth?
Dry mouth (xerostomia) can be due to medications, aging, stress, or even radiation therapy. Saliva is important to aide in digestion, prevent cavities and gingivitis, and helps control bacteria in the mouth. In some cases, decay from dry mouth on root surfaces (or recession areas) can occur as fast as 2-3 months, as compared to traditional enamel decay which can take up to 12-18 months to penetrate the enamel. If you experience dry mouth, cavities and gingivitis may occur more frequently especially with inadequate oral hygiene and diet. There are specific products that can be used to help combat dry mouth such as certain mouth rinses, sprays, and gels. Our team works very hard at trying to find the right techniques, tools, and products that can help our patients with this frustrating condition
