Teeth Cleaning - Aiken, SC

Professional Teeth Cleanings

For healthy patients, it is recommended they visit the dentist every six months for cleanings and exams. During regular teeth cleanings, we will remove any hardened tartar (plaque) that has built up on your teeth. We will examine your mouth for any signs of dental problems and review your at-home oral hygiene habits.
Periodontal Treatment - Aiken, SC

Periodontal Maintenance

Gum disease, also called periodontal disease, is a chronic infection which can have a negative effect on both your oral and overall health. If left untreated, it can contribute to a stroke or heart disease. It can also result in bone loss, which causes unstable teeth and tooth loss. Our gum disease treatments focus on restoring your oral health and preventing any further damage to your jaw and teeth.
Tooth Sealants - Aiken, SC


Because of their placement in the mouth and their textured surface, molars are harder to clean and have a higher rate of developing cavities. Dental sealants are used to coat the chewing surfaces of the molars to fill in crevasses and prevent acid-causing plaque from pooling and damaging the enamel. These are easy to apply and will last for years. Sealants are a popular treatment for children but are appropriate for patients of all ages.
Root Canal Treatment - Aiken, SC

Root Canal Treatment

Root canals are necessary when an infection has reached the nerve of a tooth. This procedure will help relieve pain and discomfort, eliminate bacteria, and restore function to the tooth. During a root canal, the infected pulp is removed, the tooth is disinfected and sealed, and restored with a crown to reestablish strength and appearance.

Additional Treatments Include:

Oral Cancer Screenings • TMJ/TMD Treatment • Sleep Apnea Devices • Night Guards

Cosmetic & Restorative Dentistry

Crowns & Bridges - Aiken, SC

Crowns & Bridges

Often called caps, a dental crown covers the entire surface of a tooth to restore it to its original shape and size. This protects the tooth structure and restores strength not provided by other types of restorations. A crown can be made from several types of materials, however, tooth-colored materials are the most popular.

A dental bridge is used to replace a missing tooth or teeth. The fixed denture is bonded to the tooth on either side of the gap to secure a prosthetic tooth or teeth into place. This restores beauty and function to your smile.

Dental Implants - Aiken, SC


Missing teeth not only affect the appearance of your smile, but gaps can create issues for your oral and dental health. When properly maintained, dental implants can provide you with a permanent tooth replacement option which both protects and enhances your smile.

Dental implants are metal posts which are surgically inserted into your jawbone. Once the post is bonded to your jaw, it acts as the root for a replacement crown or denture. In order to be a candidate for this procedure, you must be in good health and have sufficient bone structure.

Teeth Whitening - Aiken, SC

Teeth Whitening

If you are looking to achieve a brighter, beautiful smile, we can help! We offer a selection of teeth whitening treatments to help reverse tooth discoloration. We will work with you to determine which whitening option best fits your goals and desires for your smile.

Porcelain veneers provide a way to correct multiple imperfections in your smile. A veneer is a thin, durable, wafer-like shell which is bonded to the front of your teeth. To ensure your veneers look completely natural, we customize the restorations to match your natural tooth color. Whether you are trying to correct a chip, crack, gap, lengthen a tooth, or fix discoloration, veneers do it all.

Additional Cosmetic & Restorative Treatments Include:

Extractions • Fillings • Invisalign

Dental Technology

As part of our commitment to our patients, we utilize the latest technology within our practice. This includes:

Waterlase System

This system incorporates a laser and water to complete a number of procedures without the use of a drill. In some cases, this eliminates the need for a shot. The Waterlase System allows us to safely, gently, and effectively perform treatment for a number of common dental conditions.

Itero Scanner

The latest addition to our practice, the Itero Scanner is a 3D scanner which we use to scan your teeth and make a “digital impression”. This eliminates the need to take physical impressions and can be used to fabricate a number of dental treatment items such as Invisalign trays, night guards, as well as crowns and bridges.


We use this technology to design and mill crowns in-house. This system utilizes CAD/CAM technology to create crowns in just one visit. It saves you both time and money, as we can receive impressions and have their crown created and fitted within the same appointment.

VaTech CBCT Scanner - Aiken, SC

VaTech CBCT scanner

Our Cone beam (CB) CT scanner is a 3D x-ray scanner that can provide us amazing 3 Dimensional images of your teeth and surrounding bone structures. Using very minimal radiation, it provides in-depth images that provide much more information than a traditional dental x-ray. The scanner can not only help aid better in the diagnoses and treatment of dental conditions but also conditions such as sleep apnea, TMJ issues and implant placement.

Pax 2000

In the wake of Covid 19, we are taking the extra step in ensuring an even safer environment for our patients.  We are now introducing the Pax 2000 Extraoral Dental Suction System. This system, used by our dentist and hyegeinists, allows for safe removal of extra aerosols and droplets that are created while dental treatment is being performed. Not only does it do that, but the system is able to filter out and stop 99.97% of any viruses, germs or dust that would end up contaminating operatories and clothes.

This gives us clearer vision of what we are treating, more depth perception and also enhances our ability to adequately treat and also document certain procedures. Just another way we are raising the bar in patient care! Learn more about what sets us apart at
