At Open Path Dental, we believe in the significance of proactive care as the cornerstone of a healthy smile. Our comprehensive range of general services includes:
At Open Path Dental, we believe that prevention is the cornerstone of good oral health. Our comprehensive exams and cleanings are designed to maintain your dental health, detect potential issues at their earliest stages, and prevent the development of dental problems. Our dentists perform a thorough examination of your teeth, gums, and oral tissues, while our dental hygienists provide a professional cleaning to remove plaque and tartar that brushing and flossing at home can't reach.
Oral cancer can be life-threatening if not diagnosed and treated early. During your routine check-ups at Open Path Dental, our dentists perform thorough oral cancer screenings. This involves a visual inspection of your mouth and palpation of your jaw and neck to detect any abnormalities that could indicate oral cancer. Early detection is crucial for successful treatment and recovery.
Healthy gums are just as important as healthy teeth. At Open Path Dental, we provide comprehensive periodontal care to prevent and treat gum diseases like gingivitis and periodontitis. This includes regular cleanings to remove plaque and tartar, as well as more intensive treatments for advanced gum disease.
For patients with gum disease, we offer deep cleanings, also known as scaling and root planing. This procedure involves removing plaque and tartar from below the gum line and smoothing the root surfaces to promote healing and prevent further progression of gum disease.
At Open Path Dental, we utilize advanced laser technology for bacterial reduction therapy. This non-invasive procedure targets and eliminates harmful bacteria in the mouth, promoting a healthier oral environment and helping to prevent gum disease and tooth decay.
Dental sealants are a preventive treatment that involves applying a protective coating to the chewing surfaces of the molars. This creates a barrier against food particles and bacteria, helping to prevent cavities. Sealants are especially beneficial for children and teens who are at a higher risk of tooth decay.
Fluoride is a natural mineral that helps strengthen tooth enamel and prevent cavities. At Open Path Dental, we offer professional fluoride treatments for both children and adults to provide additional protection against tooth decay.
For patients who grind their teeth at night or those who have completed orthodontic treatment, we offer custom-made nightguards and retainers. Nightguards protect your teeth from the damaging effects of grinding, while retainers help maintain the results of your orthodontic treatment.
Dental emergencies can be stressful and painful. At Open Path Dental, we provide immediate and expert solutions for unexpected dental injuries or conditions. Whether you have a severe toothache, a broken tooth, or a knocked-out tooth, our team is ready to provide the urgent care you need.
Our restorative dental treatments aim to repair and enhance broken or damaged teeth, allowing patients to regain optimal oral wellness and function. Our comprehensive restorative services include:
Dental fillings are a common procedure used to restore teeth damaged by decay. At Open Path Dental, we use high-quality dental materials that blend seamlessly with your natural teeth. The process involves removing the decayed tooth material, cleaning the affected area, and then filling the cavity with a filling material. This not only restores the tooth to its normal function and shape but also prevents further decay by closing off spaces where bacteria can enter.
Dental implants are a reliable and durable solution for replacing missing teeth. They are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The implants themselves are tiny titanium posts that are placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. Dental implants can help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing.
Dentures are removable appliances that can replace missing teeth and help restore your smile. If you’ve lost all or some of your natural teeth, whether from gum disease, tooth decay or injury, replacing missing teeth will benefit your appearance and your health. Dentures make it easier to eat and speak better than you could without teeth—things that people often take for granted.
Dental bridges are used to replace one or more missing teeth. They span the space where the teeth are missing. Bridges are cemented to the natural teeth or implants surrounding the empty space. These teeth, called abutments, serve as anchors for the bridge. A replacement tooth, called a pontic, is attached to the crowns that cover the abutments. As with crowns, you have a choice of materials for bridges. Your dentist can help you decide which to use, based on the location of the missing tooth (or teeth), its function, aesthetic considerations and cost.
We understand the importance of early dental care for children. Our pediatric dental services are tailored to the age of our young patients and focus on:
At Open Path Dental, we firmly believe that education is the key to lifelong oral health. This is why we place a strong emphasis on educating both children and their parents about the importance of oral hygiene and proper dental care. Our team takes the time to explain dental procedures and oral hygiene techniques in a way that is easy for children to understand. We also provide advice on diet and other factors that can affect oral health. By instilling good habits from a young age, we help children understand the importance of taking care of their teeth and gums, setting them on the path to a lifetime of healthy smiles.
Our pediatric dentists are committed to maintaining the oral wellness of our young patients. We provide comprehensive preventative care, including regular check-ups, cleanings, and fluoride treatments, to help prevent dental issues from arising. We also offer dental sealants to protect children's teeth from decay. Despite our best preventative efforts, children can still experience dental issues. For these situations, we provide a full range of restorative treatments. Whether it's a simple filling for a cavity or more complex care for dental injuries or conditions, our team is equipped to address any dental issues your child may face. Our goal is to ensure that every child leaves our clinic with a healthy, confident smile.
Many patients have experienced the transformative power of cosmetic dentistry in boosting their self-esteem and confidence. Our cosmetic services include:
Dental bonding is a versatile and cost-effective treatment that can correct a variety of minor dental imperfections. At Open Path Dental, we use a tooth-colored resin material that blends seamlessly with your natural teeth. The process involves applying the resin to the affected tooth, molding it to the desired shape, and then hardening it with a special light. This procedure can be used to repair chips and cracks, close small gaps between teeth, reshape misshapen teeth, and even improve tooth discoloration. The result is a more uniform and attractive smile that you'll be proud to show off.
Porcelain veneers are thin, custom-made shells that are bonded to the front surface of your teeth to improve their appearance. They are made from high-quality porcelain that mimics the light-reflecting properties of natural tooth enamel. Veneers can be used to correct a wide range of dental imperfections, including stained, chipped, misshapen, or slightly misaligned teeth. At Open Path Dental, we work closely with you to design veneers that enhance your smile while looking natural and feeling comfortable.
Gum contouring, also known as gum reshaping, is a cosmetic procedure that can enhance your smile if you have excess gum tissue that makes your teeth appear short. At Open Path Dental, we use advanced tools and techniques to gently reshape your gumline, removing excess tissue and creating a more balanced and harmonious smile. This procedure can be performed on its own or in conjunction with other cosmetic treatments for a complete smile makeover.
Invisalign is a modern orthodontic treatment that uses clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten your teeth. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible and can be removed for eating, brushing, and flossing. This makes them a popular choice for adults and teens who want to improve their smile without the inconvenience and aesthetic impact of metal braces. At Open Path Dental, we provide custom Invisalign treatment plans that are tailored to your unique needs and goals.
At Open Path Dental, we proudly offer GLO Science teeth brightening, a revolutionary teeth whitening system that combines warming heat and light technology. This state-of-the-art treatment can dramatically brighten your smile in just one office visit, without the sensitivity often associated with traditional teeth whitening treatments. The GLO Science system is safe, efficient, and provides long-lasting results, making it an excellent choice for anyone looking to enhance their smile quickly and effectively.
With a commitment to excellence and patient-centric care, Open Path Dental is your partner in achieving and maintaining a healthy, beautiful smile. We invite you to join us on your journey to optimal oral wellness and a radiant smile that leaves a lasting impression.

A general dentist provides a range of dental work, including dental exams, cleanings, fillings, root canals, and preventive care.
Depending on your specific needs, cosmetic dental procedures such as teeth whitening, dental veneers, and Invisalign can help enhance your smile.
It is recommended to visit the dentist every six months for a routine dental check-up and cleaning. Regular visits help detect any dental issues early and maintain optimal oral wellness.
Regular brushing, flossing, and going to the dentist for routine check-ups are essential to maintain good oral hygiene and prevent dental issues.
During a dental check-up, your dentist will examine your teeth, gums, and mouth, looking for signs of decay, gum disease, and other dental issues. X-rays may be taken to detect hidden problems.
