We recognize that anxiety about dental treatment is a common problem. Our offices offer different levels of anxiety control for a more relaxed, and pleasant dental visit.

We provide all levels of anxiety control, including conscious oral sedation, and deep IV sedation, administered by certified anesthesiologists.

Please let us know if you have had any problems in the past with dental anxiety, and we will provide you with the right choice of sedation.

Root Canals
Root CanalsRoot Canals

Sometimes tiny nerve canals within your tooth can become infected or inflamed. This can be triggered by a variety of causes such as cavities, broken teeth, ill-fitting crowns or fillings, and gum disease. Some of the signs of a damaged nerve are pain to hot and/or cold, spontaneous pain, swelling, and bad breath. When an infected tooth is diagnosed or there is damage to the pulp, a root canal may be recommended.

We offer the services of a certified Endodontist (root canal specialist) in addition to our experienced general dentist in the treatment of your root canal pain.

Pediatric Dentistry

We understand the importance of starting children off on the right foot for good oral health.

A Pediatric Dentist is the most qualified professional to determine the appropriate approach to guiding your child’s dental growth and development, helping them avoid future dental problems and getting them on the right path to good oral health. We recommend only white, metal-free fillings for our young patients.

We recommend that your child visit the dentist around three years of age, or sooner, if you see visible signs of dental problems. Our staff will do everything to make your child’s dental visit enjoyable, and fun.

In addition, we offer adult orthodontics to correct most cosmetic concerns, and improve the overall oral health of our patients.We also offer clear, mini braces, and INVISALIGN braces.

Gum Treatment
Gum TreatmentGum Treatment

Periodontal (Gum) Disease is a bacterial infection, and is considered one of the most common diseases in the world!

Although Periodontal Disease is considered a “silent disease”, the side effects of it can be devastating. In recent years, scientists have found that infected gums may adversely affect the cardiovascular system, contribute to diabetes, cause pregnancy complications, or cause complications in heart and transplant surgeries. In addition, there is evidence that suggests a possible transmission of oral bacteria between individuals.

The signs of gum disease are subtle: bleeding gums, bad taste in your mouth, chronic bad breath, loose teeth, and separating teeth.

We offer non-surgical, and surgical periodontal care, provided by highly trained dentists, and specialists.

Implants
ImplantsImplants

Do you have an active lifestyle and prefer not to wear dentures? Do you have a missing tooth or teeth, and prefer not to damage adjacent teeth, and replace your missing teeth with a bridge?

In the 21st century, dental implants are fast becoming the treatment of choice for long term dental restorations. With advances in bone grafting, bone regeneration, and implant design, more of our patients are enjoying the comforts of dental implants.

We are able to treat virtually every implant situation, from immediate implant placement, to bone grafting, and sinus lift. All of our implant treatments are provided by specialists, and highly trained implant dentists.

Please call our office to see if dental implants are right for you.

Crowns
CrownsCrowns

Crowns are recommended to restore lost tooth structure, damaged fillings, teeth with root canal treatment, and to replace defective old fillings.

Our crowns are designed to take strength, and cosmetics into consideration. We use a wide range of dental materials to achieve this goal.

Our doctors will be happy to discuss the merits of crowns and how they may benefit your oral health.

Bridges
BridgesBridges

We will occasionally consider a dental bridge for people who have missing teeth, and practice good oral hygiene. If you have spaces created by missing teeth, your remaining teeth may begin to shift out of position and become more susceptible to tooth decay and gum disease.

With advances in dental implants, our first choice for replacement of missing teeth are implants. However, bridges may still provide patients with a level of comfort and aesthetics that will never be matched by dentures.

Cosmetic Whitening
Cosmetic WhiteningCosmetic Whitening

A bright smile is a confident smile. Luckily, for many people, a brighter smile is just an office visit away! Advancements in dental care provide an array of options to deliver dazzling results.

Teeth become discolored over time due to any number of reasons; among them are staining agents such as tea, coffee, and tobacco.

The customer service experience at Paddison Dental Group was great, especially during the pandemic! By filling out a questionnaire and having patients wear a mask and following social distancing, they are helping to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus. The dental care experience was great as well, the dentist that attended me was kind and clear in what she tried to explain, unlike others who are so strict and aren't the same. Thanks for being such great dental service providers!

The staff at Paddison Dental are different, it feels more like a "Family Enviroment". All of them are genuinely sincere when it comes to your health. Your health is their first priority and they are very supportive when it comes to acheiving your optimum health. Supportive in the sense that they will go out of their way to help you in so many different ways. Both my best friend and I are very thankful to all of the staff, we appreciate everything they do for us!

I had all 4 of my wisdom extracted and going into the procedure I had ALOT of anxiety and fear. The surgeon and the staff did a great job to calm my nerves. I was given a sedative that helped some but what helped the most was two things. The surgeon gave me enough numbing where I didnt feel pain and secondly and most importantly, they talked me through the process. Communication is key, and because of that I will give this place 5 stars. I will be recommending family and friends.
