Root Canal Therapy

Dr. Andrew Perry is skilled in performing root canals. Many patients experience great relief in tooth pain, and a restored ability to chew, bite and talk. Dr. Perry will numb the tooth with local anesthetic and then remove the infected tissue and fill the space with a filling material. When the root canal is finished, the tooth should then be restored with a crown or a filling, depending on the circumstances.  

Locator Retained Overdenture: (Implant Dentures)

This type of denture is removable, but it is held in place through the use of dental implants. It is suitable for individuals who want more secure support. Dental implants are placed in the jaw and healing caps are placed over the implants to so the posts can heal. Once ready, Dr. Perry will place the final denture. 

Removable Complete Dentures

Removable dentures are a suitable replacement for missing or damaged teeth. Dentures allow the alignment of the teeth to keep harmony and balance within the mouth in order to prevent further problems which can arise from missing or damaged teeth.

Snoring and Sleep Apnea Treatment

Our office provides treatment for individuals with Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA).  The method is significantly less invasive than other treatment options, and is pain-free. First, impressions of the mouth are taken and then a custom fabricated device is made to fit your upper and lower jaws. This device gently guides your lower jaw forward, pulling your tongue away from the back of your throat and allowing air to pass without interference. Follow-up sleep studies can be performed to test breathing improvement and the device can be adjusted for maximum effectiveness and comfort, if needed. Our OSA treatment is ideal for those who are CPAP intolerant or desire alternative Sleep Apnea treatment.

Sedation and Anxiolysis

For patients who may be nervous about a dental procedure, Nitrous Oxide, (“laughing gas,”) can be offered as an option for sedation or for the reduction of anxiety (“anxiolysis”).  The gas allows patients to stay awake, remain calm, and still be able to communicate.  Relaxation also reduces the risk of triggering the gag reflect so the work can be completed without reactionary pauses. Nitrous Oxide is administered in custom dosing measurements, which allows for a clear and relaxed state for the duration of the procedure.
