Our Services

Restorative Dentistry

Restorative dentistry is the study, diagnosis, and integrated management of diseases of the teeth and their supporting structures and the rehabilitation of the dentition to the functional and aesthetic requirements of the individual.

Root Canals & Crowns

A root canal is a dental procedure to remove the dead or dying nerve tissue and bacteria from inside a tooth.

A dental crown is a covering that fits over your existing tooth to make it look and feel like a normal tooth. Crowns are often placed when a tooth is cracked or has lost its structure so that it can’t hold a filling.


Dentures (also known as false teeth) are prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth and are supported by the surrounding soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity. Conventional dentures are removable (removable partial denture or complete denture).


Dental bridges literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. A bridge is made up of two or more crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap — these two or more anchoring teeth are called abutment teeth — and a false tooth /teeth in between.


Implants are used to change your life. They allow you to eat, allow you to smile and laugh outloud. They are versatile and can be used to replace single teeth and retain detutures.

Dental Cleanings

Professional dental cleaning is a general dental procedure for the removal of plaque, tartar, and stains from the teeth. Performed by Dr. Anderson or our dental hygienist, cleanings typically include tooth polishing as well.
