PreventiveRegular dental cleaning

We believe that everyone deserves a beautiful, healthy smile. In addition to brushing and flossing twice a day, the best way to keep your smile healthy is with semi-annual cleanings and exams. At our office, Dr. Baker and Dr. Brecht provide each patient individualized attention for enhanced dental health. Regular hygiene appointments include:
  • Thorough cleaning and flossing
  • Full mouth and periodontal (gum) exam
  • Oral cancer and blood pressure screening
  • Periodic x-rays to detect decay, bone loss or tumors
  • Individual care consultations


Restorative

Letís face it; we are hard on our teeth. Sipping all day on coffee or soda, biting and chewing on hard surfaces or sweets, not to mention bad habits like chewing on ice, can result in decayed or chipped teeth. Dr. Baker and Dr. Brechtís goal is to save your teeth and keep your beautiful smile healthy. Our restorative services include:
  • Fillings
  • Extractions
  • Crowns
  • Bridges
  • Dentures
  • Implants
Dr. Baker and Dr. Brecht are pleased to offer same-day porcelain crowns, inlays, onlays and veneers with the new E4D cad-cam Restoration System. This eliminates the need for a temporary restoration and a second trip to our office.

Teeth whiteningWhitening: Tooth whitening is the easiest way for you to improve your smile. Ask Dr. Baker about selecting the in-office or at-home tooth whitening procedure that is right for you.

Bridges: Bridges are one method to fill a gap created by a missing tooth (or teeth). A bridge is made up of two crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap and a false tooth in between. Natural teeth, dental implants, or a combination of natural teeth and dental implants can be used to support the bridge.

Implants: If you wear dentures or partials, the inconvenience, discomfort and fear of embarrassment seems a constant burden. There is a solution. With the stability of natural teeth, dental implants restore confidence and self-esteem with a natural look and feel. Best of all, they enhance your quality of life and restore your peace of mind. Ask about dental implants for you or someone you care about.

Veneers: Porcelain laminate veneers bond custom-made, tooth shaped shells to correct or camouflage discoloration, damage or misalignment.
Teeth whitening
Endodontics: Occasionally, a toothís nerve chamber will become infected, requiring a root canal to save the tooth. This treatment cleans the infected chamber and repairs the damage, saving your natural tooth. Our office utilizes a procedure that is both comfortable and completed in less time than previous methods.

TMJ Disorders: Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ) is the name given to a group of symptoms that cause pain in the head, face, and jaw. The symptoms include headaches, soreness in the chewing muscles, and clicking or stiffness of the joints. TMJ often has psychological as well as physical causes.
