In many respects, your oral health can be seen as a mirror of your general health. Some dental problems may reflect issues in other parts of your body, and vice versa. For example, untreated oral infections can lead to poorer control of diabetes, an increased incidence of cardiovascular disease, and complications during pregnancy. Next Level dentists are trained to identify these and other issues, and offer appropriate treatment or referral when needed.
Our dentists take primary dental care providers for patients of all ages. They can treat you and your entire family and care for your overall oral health. This is crucial to your total health. We take responsibility for the diagnosis, treatment and overall coordination of services to meet your oral health needs.
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.

For those who are concerned about their appearance while undergoing orthodontic treatment, this is the perfect option for you! Our doctors have completed numerous Invisalign cases in order to have a full understanding of the capabilities and results of this orthodontic option.
For adults and other candidates of Invisalign, it is the key to a better smile without the traditional metal braces. However, the aesthetics are merely just one of the benefits of this orthodontic treatment. If you think that you or someone you know may be a candidate for Invisalign, we would highly encourage you read more below!
How It Works
Using modern 3-D imaging technology, a custom set of aligners is made for you. Every two weeks, you switch to a new aligner. As you switch aligners, your teeth gradually and comfortably shift, resulting in a beautiful smile. We will have you come by their office every six weeks to confirm the progress of your treatment. On average, you will be in treatment for 9 – 15 months and wear 18 – 30 different aligners. However, actual treatment times will depend on your particular case.
If you’ve lost teeth due to accident, injury, or gum disease, we can create a permanent bridge to restore your solid smile. A bridge not only fills the gap, but it also prevents repositioning of remaining teeth. It can also correct a misaligned bite, improve chewing function and speech articulation, and provide internal structure for the face to give you a more youthful appearance.
A dental implant (also known as an endosseous implant or fixture) is a surgical component that interfaces with the bone of the jaw or skull to support a dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge, denture, facial prosthesis or to act as an orthodontic anchor. The basis for modern dental implants is a biologic process called osseointegration, in which materials such as titanium form an intimate bond to bone. The implant fixture is first placed so that it is likely to osseointegrate, then a dental prosthetic is added.
A variable amount of healing time is required for osseointegration before either the dental prosthetic (a tooth, bridge or denture) is attached to the implant or an abutment is placed which will hold a dental prosthetic.
Root canal therapy is a critical dental treatment for many patients with dental decay. Root canal therapy can save the health, appearance, and functionality of a damaged tooth. Without this important treatment, one infected tooth can cause rampant infection throughout the mouth—affecting other teeth, gum tissue, connective tissues, and bone. During root canal therapy our Next Level dentists will clear away the infected dental pulp or “core” of your damaged tooth. They will then seal the tooth with a filling to ensure the tooth’s stability.
Our office has years of experience performing root canals and helping patients regain healthy teeth. You’ll know that you’re in good hands with our root canal dental team. Trust your dental health to us, we’ve helped so many patients reclaim their healthy, beautiful teeth, we can help you too!
Many patients are initially concerned when they consider root canal therapy, but our Next Level dental office can make your treatment gentle and comfortable. Our patients report that root canal therapy is no more painful than having a traditional filling!
Periodontics is the dental specialty focusing exclusively in the inflammatory disease that destroys the gums and other supporting structures around the teeth. A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal, or disease, and in the placement of dental implants. Periodontists receive extensive training in these areas, including three additional years of education beyond dental school. As specialists in periodontal disease, they are experts in the latest techniques for diagnosing and treating periodontal disease. They are also trained in cosmetic periodontal procedures.
Periodontists treat cases ranging from mild gingivitis to more severe periodontitis. Periodontists offer a wide range of treatments, such as scaling and root planing (the cleaning of infected root surfaces), root surface debridement (the removal of damaged tissue), and regenerative procedures (the reversal of lost bone and tissue). When necessary, periodontists can also perform surgical procedures for patients with severe gum disease. Additionally, periodontists are trained in the placement, maintenance and repair of dental implants.
