healthy gums start here

Periodontal care

Periodontal disease (also known as gum disease) affects millions of Americans each year. Studies show that about half of American adults suffer from this entirely preventable dental health issue. Dr. Dan Hostrander helps patients avoid gum disease with scaling and root planing, a treatment that removes plaque and bacteria from under the gum line and improves the health of your smile.

dental sealants

One way to prevent tooth decay is to apply a dental sealant to the chewing surfaces of your teeth. During this non-invasive, painless procedure, Dr. Dan paints a thin, plastic coating onto your teeth (usually the premolars and molars) to help protect them from harmful bacteria that can cause many dental health issues. Call us today or visit our office for preventive dental care!

remove damage & Decay

gentle extractions

A patient may need a tooth extraction for a number of reasons. Problematic wisdom teeth are the most common reason for a tooth extraction. When your third molars grow in, it can be painful and disruptive to your existing teeth. A gentle extraction will relieve pain and keep the rest of your smile strong. Dr. Dan may also suggest an extraction if your tooth has been badly damaged by decay and is unable to be saved with root canal therapy. Call us today to learn more, or to schedule an appointment to see if you may need an extraction.
