Our Services

Comprehensive Exam and Oral Hygiene Care

Regular comprehensive exams and professional cleanings will keep your smile clean and healthy. Our trained and registered hygienist will thoroughly clean your teeth and screen for tooth decay, gum disease, oral cancer and other harmful conditions. With regular cleanings every six months, we can detect oral problems early, when conservative treatment is an option. We will also teach you how to optimize your oral homecare routine, because daily care is vital to maintaining a fresh and healthy smile for life.

Our state of the art digital radiograph machine helps to identify cavities and structural abnormalities. Digital radiography minimizes radiation exposure and creates images immediately.

KöR

Developed by internationally renowned cosmetic dentist and bleaching expert Dr. Rod Kurthy, the KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching™ System is used by thousands of dentists worldwide. It is considered to be the most reliable and effective bleaching system ever developed.

The KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching™ System works by restoring your teeth’s ability to absorb oxygen. The oxygen from its whitening gel is absorbed deeply into the tooth, dissolving stain molecules.

Bite Splint Therapy

A bite splint is a plastic appliance, worn by patients during the night who clench and/or grind during sleep. Clenching and grinding also causes gum recession.

Wearing a bite splint at night helps to protect the teeth from:

– Difficulty opening the mouth
– Pain in TMJ
– Frequent Headaches
– Ear aches

Sinus Agmentation (or Lift)

This procedure involves elevating the sinus membrane and placing the bone graft into the sinus floor which will allow implants to be placed in the back part of the upper jaw when teeth have been removed and bone loss has occurred.  Often times, the implants can be placed at the time the grafting is performed.

Invisalign

Invisalign – Virtually Invisible Braces

Dr. Jaffer has advanced training and participates in many hours of post graduate study pertaining to orthodontics and invisible braces. Invisalign is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth without braces, metal wires, or brackets. Having a confident smile can change everything. Invisalign® makes the decision easy, because you can get a stunning smile without most people even noticing you’re going through treatment.

The Invisalign treatment consists of a series of clear plastic aligners, created precisely to gently and gradually move your teeth into place. By using a series of clear removable aligners, Invisalign straightens your teeth right before your eyes. Change them about every two weeks, and your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have moved to the final position that Dr. Jaffer has prescribed for you.

Advantages Of Invisalign®
Virtually Invisible – Only you will know you’re wearing braces.
Completely Removable – Eat, drink, brush and floss, or take them out for special occasions.
Faster Treatment Time – No fixed metal brackets or wires to adjust means you’ll spend less time visiting the doctor. You will receive a new set of aligners every other week during your Invisalign treatment. A trip to our office will occur every 6 weeks on average to ensure that your treatment is going according to plan.

Is Invisalign for me?
Invisalign can be used to treat the vast majority of common problems for adults and teens. Whether your smile needs minor improvements or more extensive adjustments, Invisalign can certainly help. It’s successful in treating overly crowded or widely spaced teeth. It can also relieve more complex issues, including overbites, underbites and even crossbites. In fact, Dr. Jaffer can use Invisalign clear aligners in all or part of just about any treatment plan.

Infection Control

Our office is OSHA compliant and follows the same OSHA sterilization requirements as your local hospital.

TMJ

Temporomandibular Joint Disorder, or TMJ affects 15% of Americans. Some common symptoms include pain in or around the ear, tenderness of the jaw, clicking or popping noises when opening the mouth, or even head and neck aches. Treatment of TMJ may involve a series of steps. TM disorders can result when the jaw muscles or jaw joints are affected. The joint, ligaments, and muscles used for chewing and grinding food may all be involved. We can fit you for a Night Guard to prevent you from grinding or clenching your teeth while you sleep. We also offer other treatments for temporomandibular joint disorders, such as stress reducing exercises or muscle relaxants.

Anxiety Free Dentistry (including Nitrous Oxide)

At our office, we realize that many people have fear or apprehension about visiting the dentist. We recognize that different people have different fears and we offer several different approaches to treatment to help make your visit as easy and comfortable as possible. Nitrous Oxide, or “laughing gas” can help relieve your tension and can be easily and quickly reversed so when your appointment is finished you will feel completely normal and be able to drive home or back to work. During the appointment, it will take the edge off and allow you to “float away.”

Extractions

There are times when it is necessary to remove a tooth. A tooth may have so much decay that it puts the surrounding teeth and jaw at risk of decay, so your doctor may recommend removal and replacement with a bridge or implant. Infection, orthodontic correction, or problems with a wisdom tooth can also require removal of a tooth.

Sports Guards

Most people think of boxing and hockey when they think of sports guards, an oral appliance that protects. However, even mountain biking, soccer, basketball or racquetball poses a risk of oral injury. Keep your smile safe with custom-molded sports guards, available in varying strengths based on the demands of your sport of choice.

Periodontal Therapy

Plaque buildup around the gum line can lead to periodontal disease. This infection causes persistent bad breath, gums that bleed easily, and gum recession. It can also contribute to the risk of stroke, heart attack, and complications for diabetics and pregnant women. Regular brushing, flossing, and preventative care visits with our hygienist help stave off periodontal disease. But should infection occur, we can help. The progression of periodontal disease can be halted and easily maintained with professional therapy, along with good home care.

To minimize discomfort when treating periodontal disease, we administer a local anesthetic before scaling and root planning. We then use an ultrasonic scaler, which emits a sonic vibration to remove tartar deposits from around and below the gum line. After a scaling procedure, we smooth the exposed surfaces of a tooth’s root to promote healing; then we apply Arestin, an antibiotic powder that adheres to infected gum tissue.

Bridges

A bridge consists of a partial set of false teeth that fill a gap created by missing teeth. Crowns on either side of the bridge act as anchors, holding the bridge securely in place. Impeccable function and a natural appearance make crown and bridgework a popular choice for smile restoration.

Implants

Dental implants are rapidly becoming the new stars of the dental industry. Dental implants are the most predictable, long-lasting tooth replacement option in dentistry. Studies have shown a 97% success rate at 30 years after placement. Dental implants feel and function just like a normal tooth. They replace both the root and crown portion of the tooth. Dental implants provide a strong foundation for biting and chewing and can rejuvenate your smile, giving you the confidence you need and deserve.

Bone Grafting

Often, after a period of time, the jawbone associated with missing teeth shrinks.  This can leave a condition in which there is poor quality and quantity of bone suitable for placement of dental implants.  Previously, patients with this condition were not candidates for dental implants.  However, we now have the ability to grow bone where needed.  These bone grafting  procedures give us the opportunity to place implants of proper length and width, as well as ensure functionality and esthetic appearance.

Wisdom Teeth Extraction

Wisdom teeth extractions are a fairly common procedure. Wisdom teeth often cause problems as they are trying to protrude through the gums. When a wisdom tooth is impacted, it means the tooth is coming in at an angle and not straight through the gum line. This can cause pain, the tooth can come in unevenly, or the tooth may only emerge partially. This can also make the tooth hard to clean, and pieces of food may be caught under the skin. This makes it easy for an infection to develop.

IV Sedation

Sedation

Relax, you’re in great hands!

Nearly 50% of the population feels nervous or uncomfortable about going to the dentist or having dental procedures done.

Dr. Jaffer understand the importance of helping patients feel relaxed and comfortable during dental procedures. If you feel that sedation is necessary for your dental care, give us a call to learn more about our sedation dentistry.

IV sedation is very safe, and can assist us in completing all your dentistry in one visit.

How You May Feel
Most patients remember nothing about their treatment. A few will remember a little, usually at the end of the appointment when we are getting them ready to go home. You will need someone to bring you to our office on the day of your sedation appointment and you MUST have someone take you home afterwards.

Safety of Sedation
The reason that we use IV sedation is because of its safety. We use monitoring equipment to monitor your pulse and blood pressure. You’ll be done before you know it, completely unaware of the time passing, totally relaxed.
Contact us for more information about Sedation Dentistry.

Dentures and Partials

We fit dentures to replace all or some of the teeth in the upper and/or lower jaw. Dentures improve your confidence when you smile, as well as the clarity of your speech and your ability to chew. Modern dentures provide a firm hold and natural appearance to ensure maximum comfort and function.

Teeth Whitening

The In-Office Whitening system is a revolutionary tooth whitening procedure. It’s safe, effective and fast, very fast. In just over an hour, your teeth will be dramatically whiter. In-Office Whitening is ideal for anyone looking for immediate results.

Take Home Teeth Whitening

An alternative option to getting that bright smile is to take home custom fitted bleach trays to whiten your teeth in two weeks! These trays are then worn for 30 minutes once or twice a day hours for 2 weeks.

Tooth Colored Fillings

If you’re embarrassed about your smile because of decay or dark fillings in your teeth, you may be a good candidate for composite resins. A silicon dioxide-filled, tooth-colored plastic mixture, composite resins can restore teeth to an attractive, healthy state.

Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are thin, porcelain, semi-translucent laminates that are permanently bonded to your teeth. Veneers provide an aesthetic alternative for a variety of dental conditions involving front teeth, including: broken or chipped teeth, gaps between teeth and crooked teeth. Veneers can also improve the shade of yellow or discolored teeth.

Bonding

Bonding can restore a chipped tooth or close a gap between teeth. It is also an economical alternative to a porcelain veneer.

Crowns

A crown can return structure, strength, and function to a tooth with extensive decay or damage. Designed to fit snugly and function as a healthy tooth, a crown will protect your tooth from further damage and preserve the jaw’s correct natural alignment.

Inlays/Onlays

Gold, porcelain, or composite inlays/onlays are custom made to fill the interior surfaces of a decayed tooth. Inlays and onlays rebuild severely decayed teeth when a traditional filling may not suffice.

Root Canals

Infections can develop deep within a tooth, due to extensive decay down to the nerve. This condition can be extremely painful and dangerous, requiring prompt attention to extract the infected tissue. We understand that root canals have a bad reputation, but rest assured, innovations in dental techniques, technology, and comfort measures have revolutionized root canal therapy.

What Our Patients Say About Us

I went to Arbor Dental to have my wisdom teeth removed and they were kind, helpful, and made sure I was very comfortable and informed from start to finish. Dr. Jaffer called me before and after my appointment to answer any questions and see how I was doing. I was very nervous before the procedure, but they did an absolutely excellent job! I would definitely recommend Arbor Dental to family and friends.
