General and Cosmetic Dentistry

All of Dr. Davey’s patients get a comprehensive exam where he checks for decay and bite problems and gums and bone structure for periodontal disease and oral cancers. His assistants provide pain-free and thorough cleaning and polishing for a plaque-free and sparkling smile.

When necessary and desired, Dr. Davey puts a treatment plan together to address any existing dental problems. Only the latest techniques and best of materials are used in all procedures such as:

  • periodontal therapy for gum disease
  • tooth-colored fillings
  • porcelain crowns
  • root canal therapy
  • partial and full removable dentures, including neuromuscular or facelift dentures
  • fixed bridgework
  • root canal therapy
  • extractions
  • dental implants and implant-supported prosthetics

For added comfort, Dr. Davey and his anesthesiologist can administer sedation during dental procedures. From injected local anesthesia to nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to oral and intravenous sedation, the dental team carefully administers and monitors pharmaceuticals which calm the patient and prevent discomfort.

To help realize the patient’s goal of a nice-looking smile, Dr. Davey offers:

  • porcelain veneers and bonding ( “instant ortho”)
  • professional teeth whitening
  • Invisalign clear plastic braces
  • all-porcelain crowns

These cosmetic services recreate smiles so people love their smiles and self-confidence boosted.

Neuromuscular Dentistry

This branch of dentistry deals not only with the teeth and gums but also with the musculature, connective tissue and nerves of the mouth, jaw and face. A neuromuscular dentist understands how these components interplay in the form, function and health of the mouth and the rest of the body.

Often patients present Dr. Davey with headaches, shoulder pain, ringing in the ears, snoring and other worrisome and debilitating symptoms. Dr. Davey evaluates the patient for how these complaints may be related to how teeth and jaw close together, how the Temporomandibular Joint functions, if teeth are wearing unevenly or if sleep apnea is the culprit.
