Patients of Dr. Hepler appreciate the ability they have to enter our office, take a pill, and relax into the dental chair. Oral conscious sedation is different from IV sedation, which places the patient into a deep state of relaxation that feels like sleep. The medication we provide is delivered in pill form and works within a few minutes without the need for needles.
Most people envision orthodontic care as a mouthful of metal brackets and wires. This type of framework is a suitable choice for many people. Teens and adults who would prefer to avoid the common inconveniences of conventional braces have a new choice: Invisalign® clear aligners. They are like having clear braces!
The Invisalign system offers a comfortable, discreet treatment for misalignment. Made of durable, clear polyurethane plastic, aligners are barely noticeable when you smile, laugh, or speak. They are not noticeable when you eat. This is because Invisalign aligners are completely removable. No metal structures are bonded to your teeth, which means virtually no disadvantages to treatment.
Dental implants are the only permanent, natural-looking replacement for missing teeth. They’re designed to restore your tooth from root to crown, as the titanium implants integrate directly into your jaw for unmatched strength and stability. Best of all, dental implants can last up to a lifetime if you maintain excellent oral hygiene.
Whole Body Health
Regular dental care and good home hygiene have a direct benefit to the look of your smile. According to the latest research, there are even more reasons to give your smile the attention it deserves. We now know that oral health will directly affect whole body health. When you brush and floss every day and see your dentist as needed based on your unique needs, you are actually improving the health of your entire body and decreasing your risk of chronic diseases such as: Heart Disease, Diabetes, Infertility, Bone Loss, Speech, Facial Profile, Diet, Immunity Disorder, etc...
Conscientious oral hygiene is important at all stages of life. A mistake that parents do not want to make is to assume baby teeth are somehow less valuable than adult teeth. When oral health is carefully attended to from an early age, the child’s smile is better preserved for a lifetime.
