We understand anxiety and fear deter many of our patients from seeking appropriate dental care. Our practice features sedation options and advanced anesthetic technology to ensure your complete relaxation and comfort throughout every stage of treatment. In addition to helping dental phobics and individuals who are especially anxious in the exam chair, sedation may be recommended if you have a medical condition like arthritis, or are undergoing several procedures at once. Dr. Kohler can administer nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, to induce a light form of sedation. We also use a Single Tooth Anesthetic System™ to administer targeted, effective medication to individual teeth receiving treatment.
Dr. Kohler has years of experience performing a range of oral surgery procedures, including root canal therapy, crown lengthening, tooth extraction, wisdom tooth removal, frenectomy treatment, and more. Our office is equipped with a microaesthetic system that uses a microscope and video monitor during examinations and treatment. This advanced technique allows our team to adhere to the strictest standards of precision and accuracy. We also offer sedation options and nearly painless injections to ensure your comfort and relaxation during oral surgery procedures.
Healthy gums lay the foundation for an attractive smile and strong bite. Left untreated, advanced periodontal disease can lead to loose teeth, or a need for extractions. Periodontal treatments play an integral role in maintaining and improving oral health. Dr. Kohler offers deep cleanings and treatment for all stages of gum disease. Preventive care is key in guarding against the buildup of plaque and bacteria that cause gum disease. We teach our patients proper at-home care techniques for brushing and flossing, discouraging the development of problems between visits to our office. The single most important step you can take to safeguard your oral health is to attend regularly scheduled cleanings at our office.
If you feel like your teeth are misaligned, or experience popping in your jaw, you may be a good candidate for bite therapy. Dr. Kohler offers bite therapy to patients whose teeth and jaws are improperly aligned. Dr. Kohler is trained at evaluating people’s jaws and how they properly align. This knowledge allows him to diagnose and treat misalignment disorders that may led to TMJ and sleep apnea. Left untreated, misalignment may cause or exacerbate temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ) and sleep apnea. These common conditions can produce troubling and painful symptoms, including snoring, insomnia, fatigue, tooth grinding, tooth pain and gum soreness, tightness in the facial muscles, and headaches. Bite therapy works to eliminate symptoms and protect the structure of the teeth.
Dr. Kohler specializes in microaesthetic dentistry. This advanced technology uses a microscope and video monitoring system during examinations and treatment. As a pioneer in the field, Dr. Kohler has years of experience using the system, and teaches and trains other dentists to implement the technique in their day-to-day care. Nearly every general, cosmetic and restorative procedure benefits from the precision and accuracy that can be achieved using microaesthic technology. As a result, restorations and aesthetic enhancements alike can be held to the highest standards, blending seamlessly with our patients' natural teeth.
