Dental Exams and Cleanings

We follow the recommendations of the American Dental Association that everyone schedule dental exams and teeth cleanings every six months. We'll check your teeth and gums during these appointments to look for cavities and gum disease and plan prompt treatment if needed.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Our tooth-colored fillings are made of composite resin that offers several benefits. It's a durable material, and the process we use to place them allows us to preserve more healthy tooth structure than silver fillings. Composite fillings also closely resemble tooth enamel and can be color-matched to the unique shade of your teeth for a seamless appearance.

Gum Disease Treatment

Gums that are red or swollen or bleed when you brush are common signs of the gum infection we call gingivitis or periodontal disease. Prompt treatment with a thorough teeth cleaning is often enough to reverse the disease, so contact us as soon as you notice these symptoms. If we don't address it promptly, it will progress and eventually affect the bones and ligaments that support your teeth. With prompt treatment, we can eliminate gingivitis and protect your smile.

Dental Crowns and Bridges

Dental crowns protect and restore broken teeth, and bridges replace missing teeth. Both return your mouth to a healthy state and restore comfortable chewing function. Our crowns and bridges are customized to match surrounding teeth and blend into your smile seamlessly.

Root Canals

Tooth Extraction

If you need tooth extraction due to severe decay, infection, or disease, we'll ensure you have a comfortable, stress-free experience. And as soon as you're ready, we'll help you choose the tooth replacement that's right for you.

TMJ Pain Relief

TMJ pain and teeth grinding can lead to painful symptoms like jaw, head, and neck pain, but Dr. Rush can customize a nightguard that you wear over your teeth during sleep. The guard gives your jaw joint a chance to rest as it acts as a barrier against the forces of teeth grinding that cause dental wear and fractured teeth.
