dental bridges
Many people lose teeth as the result of dental trauma, tooth decay, gum disease, or other reasons. Unfortunately, a gap in your mouth is not just a cosmetic issue: it can affect your speech, chewing ability, jaw alignment, and even the shape of your face. Remaining teeth often shift or twist into the gaps that result from missing teeth, affecting your bite and potentially causing gum disease and TMJ disorder.

cosmetic dentistry
In addition to traditional dentistry (oral health and hygiene), Dr. Welch offers patients options for cosmetically improving the appearance of their smiles. Cosmetic dentistry ranges from natural-colored fillings and tooth whitening to veneers and implants. If you would like to improve the appearance of your smile, Dr. Welch will work with you to develop a customized plan to meet your needs.

dental crowns
Dental crowns or "caps" are placed over weak or damaged teeth to help protect them from further harm and improve their appearance. In most cases, a crown will follow a root canal procedure to help protect the tooth. Crowns are typically completed in two visits, and a temporary crown will be put into place while your permanent crown is being fabricated. Crowns are strong and durable, and they cover and protect your tooth. There are several types of crowns, and Dr. Welch can help you determine the best option for you.

gum disease
Gum disease (periodontal disease) is a bacterial infection that can be easily treated if identified at its early stages. Gum disease can be caused by an excessive build up of plaque, changes in metabolism or hormone levels, or even medical conditions (such as diabetes or kidney conditions). If left untreated, gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss. Persistent bad breath, loose teeth, inflamed or sensitive gums, or gums that bleed easily are warning signs that you may have gum disease. Please let us know if you are having any of these issues when you come in for your regular visits.

dental implants
Implants are one of the most durable and effective ways to treat missing teeth. Dental implants are artificial tooth root replacements that compensate for tooth loss. They have at least a 90 percent success rate, and the results are permanent. Keys to success include healthy gums and an adequate bone structure to support the implant. Missing teeth can cause problems with eating, bone loss and tooth alignment, and may even make many patients feel self-conscious when smiling or speaking. Implants are one option for patients looking to correct their tooth loss.

dental implants
Many adults and teens have over- or under-bites, crooked teeth, overcrowded teeth, or other tooth alignment issues that can result in tooth decay, TMJ, and cosmetic concerns. Invisalign is a convenient, effective system for correcting tooth alignment with no unsightly and uncomfortable metal braces.

oral cancer screening
During every routine dental checkup, we will perform a thorough oral cancer screening. Not only are mouth, throat, and head cancers revealed in your oral health—so are leukemia and other systemic health problems, which cause changes in the soft tissues, gums, and bones of the mouth. Early detection expands the range of treatment options and increases the likelihood of recovery. Especially if you are a smoker, tobacco-chewer, heavy alcohol drinker, or have had oral cancer before, keeping tabs on your oral health is just good sense.

preventive care
During your regular cleaning appointments for preventive care (we suggest having a cleaning every six months), we make it our priority to help you maintain the best possible dental health. In addition to a detailed examination by Dr. Welch, our dental hygienists perform preventive dentistry techniques, thoroughly cleaning your teeth and gums in order to avoid cavities and other oral health problems. During regular cleanings and checkups, we concentrate on checking for periodontal (gum) disease, cavities and bite problems.

root canals
When the pulp of a tooth becomes infected or diseased, it is important to remove the infected tissue from the interior of the tooth in order to avoid permanent tooth removal. During a root canal, diseased root tissue is removed, the area is cleaned and the tissue is replaced with an antibacterial filling. It is highly recommended that the tooth is then capped or crowned for protection. Root canal therapy saves an average of 17 million teeth each year.

sedation dentistry
If dental visits raise your stress level exponentially because you have had past negative experiences with dentistry, extremely sensitive or hard-to-numb teeth, a strong gag reflex, or true dental phobia, you are not alone. Rest assured that Dr. Welch and his experienced team understand your fears and can help you get the oral care you need without the extreme stress! We manage patient anxiety with a combination of education, pain avoidance, and mild and moderate sedation dentistry.

tmj jaw pain
If you have Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Syndrome, you are likely experiencing jaw popping/clicking, face and head pain, and difficulty biting, as well as jaw stiffness and earaches.   TMJ is usually caused by trauma to the jaw, repetitive clenching of the jaw muscles and grinding the teeth, or misalignment of the teeth.  Many TMJ cases are temporary if you rest and relax your jaw, giving it time to heal.  However, for cases that last more than a few weeks, you may need a specially molded mouthguard or — in the worst cases — surgery to get rid of painful TMJ symptoms.

tooth veneers
We help patients improve their smiles by offering the option of veneers to help change the appearance of discolored, broken, uneven or otherwise unattractive teeth. A veneer is a thin coat of porcelain that is bonded to the teeth to help improve color or shape. A patient's teeth are contoured and an impression of the teeth is made. Next, the veneers are tested and bonded into place. Not only are veneers esthetically pleasing, but they can also provide protection to the tooth's surface. Veneers can greatly improve the appearance of teeth and give patients the confidence to smile again.
