Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy is a conservative treatment to preserve infected teeth and relieve discomfort. Dr. Hine will clean your teeth and reshape your root canals, using specialized rotary files for accurate, minimal-discomfort care. He will also restore your tooth with a customized crown.
Oral Cancer Screening
Early diagnosis and treatment is the most effective way to beat cancer. Oral cancer screenings are a vital component of our biannual exams. Dr. Hine will use the Identafi® and intraoral cameras to identify and examine suspicious areas more closely. If needed, he will take a biopsy for testing.
Dental sealants are a great way to provide extra protection and strength to teeth. These quick, easy treatments are especially important to help protect young children's developing teeth from decay and damage. Sealants are also available to strengthen and preserve adult teeth as well.
Periodontal disease (gum disease) is a serious concern. Without proper care, the condition can worsen and spread, leading to severe oral and overall health concerns. Our office can provide treatment for mild to moderate cases with scaling and root planing, as well as Arestin® antibiotic.
Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders develop when jaws are misaligned, and can cause significant issues. Symptoms can include jaw pain, ear pain, headaches, and a popping noise when you open your mouth. Dr. Hine can typically treat this condition with a night guard or oral appliance.
Sleep Apnea Treatment
If you struggle with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), you can suffer from a range of symptoms that affect your overall well-being. Dr. Hine can help diagnose OSA and treat it with custom-made oral appliances that provide non-invasive correction to improve your breathing and your long-term health.
We know that many patients feel nervous about dental treatment. In addition to gentle, personalized care, we also offer dental sedation. Dr. Hine can prescribe safe anti-anxiety medication to increase comfort and relaxation for patients with dental anxiety or who are undergoing lengthy procedures.
