Initial Oral Examination
Your initial oral examination includes a visual examination, charting, periodontal probing, diagnosis and treatment recommendations. We will also take x-rays, which includes the panoramic x-ray for proper diagnosis of the anterior (front) and posterior (back) teeth as well as the bite-wing x-ray series for proper diagnosis of proximal decay of posterior teeth.

Implants
Implants are synthetic structures that are placed in the area of the tooth normally occupied by the root. Implants are anchored to the jawbone or metal framework on the bone and act as a foundation for an artificial tooth or permanent bridge. In some cases, implants can be used to attach dentures.

Veneers
Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain or plastic cemented over the front of your teeth to change their color or shape. Veneers are used on teeth with uneven surfaces or are chipped, discolored, oddly shaped, unevenly spaced or crooked. Read More...

Crowns and Bridges
Crowns are synthetic caps, usually made of a material like porcelain, placed on the top of a tooth. Crowns are typically used to restore a tooth's function and appearance following a restorative procedure such as a root canal. When decay in a tooth has become so advanced that large portions of the tooth must be removed, crowns are often used to restore the tooth. Read More...

Teeth Whitening
Whitening procedures have effectively restored the smile of people with stained, dull, or discolored teeth.The darker tissue of your teeth, the dentin, can become exposed as the outer layer of enamel is worn away by the effects of aging or things like caffeine and tobacco. Read More...

Invisalign®
Invisalign's® invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners will give you the beautiful straight teeth you've always wanted. And best of all, no one can tell you're wearing them. Invisalign is great for adults and teenagers. Read More...

Root Canal Therapy
Root canals are tiny passageways that branch off from beneath the top of the tooth, coursing their way vertically downward, until they reach the tip of the root. Read More...

Toothaches
Simple toothaches can often be relieved by rinsing the mouth to clear it of debris and other matter. Sometimes, a toothache can be caused or aggravated by a piece of debris lodged between the tooth and another tooth. Avoid placing an aspirin between your tooth and gum to relieve pain, because the dissolving aspirin can actually harm your gum tissue. Read More...

What sets us apart

  • Providing comfort to our patients
    We do everything possible to allay your fears and provide the dental care you need in a comfortable, friendly environment. Our office provides tow different options of sedation depending on the procedure and health status of the patient:
    • Nitrous oxide (laughing gas) provides a sense of relaxation, happiness, and a disconnection from surrounding events. There are no lasting effects so you are able to drive following the procedure.
    • Oral sedation involves taking a pill to help you relax throughout your dental appointment. You will be drowsy and comfortable with little or no memory of the procedure. An escort will be required to drop you off and pick you up.
  • A wise choice for wisdom teeth (3rd Molar Extraction by General Dentist)
    Wisdom teeth are the last to develop so they may not have enough room to adequately erupt into the mouth to become fully functional and cleanable. This lack of space causes the teeth to be "impacted" which can result in a number of oral problems:
    • Infection
    • Damage to adjacent teeth (tooth decay)
    • Gum Disease (pericornitis-acute infection)
    • Cysts
    • Tumors of the jaw (rare)
    • Crowding

    If there is not enough room in your mouth for your third molars to erupt, it is advisable to have them removed. The ideal time for removal is from the mid-teens to early twenties, when the roots are not completely developed. Dr. Adjemian will evaluate the patient's medical status and review x-rays to determine if removal is the best option.
  • Same day dental emergency service
  • We provide an on call service 7 days a week, 24 hours a day
