Most people in their early years have no tooth wear, no periodontal disease, no restorations of any kind.  Over time, mostly because of diet and lifestyle, some people develop decay, gum disease, and tooth wear. In traditional dentistry doctors are taught to react to diseases and repair defects.

Traditional dentistry is big on cures, but small on causes. It does not have to be this way. When we stop and look at why a tooth is painful or broken or why gum tissue is irritated or bleeding, it prevents further more expensive damage. A cure for a painful tooth can be a simple bite adjustment. A cure for irritated gums can be as simple as learning better techniques for at home care.

Should a broken tooth need further repair, as a patient, how you choose to fix what is broken is up to you. We offer the latest intra-oral scanner and milling system for same day crowns and restorations. We also give you the option of sending your impressions to a dental laboratory in Traverse City.

We believe in working together as a team with specialists, if necessary, who are fully trained in their field of expertise in endodontics, periodontics and oral surgery.

We are here to offer solutions and quality results with ways to help you make those results last.

Our ideal is helping a person become as healthy and disease free as they choose to be.
