Most Americans experience some form of periodontal disease, often without realizing it. Periodontal disease is chiefly responsible for adult tooth loss, bleeding gums, bad breath and receding gums. The truth is, it is easily prevented with proper hygiene, home care and professional treatment. If diagnosed in its early stages, gum disease treatments are easier, less invasive and more effective. Your visit with Dr. Herbeck includes a complete evaluation of your gums and supportive tissues. At Dr. Herbeck's, you will have access to advanced periodontal therapy to heal and restore your oral health.
Are you embarrassed about your smile because of decayed, disfigured or discolored teeth? You may be a good candidate for composite resins, also known as tooth-colored fillings or restorations. When the decay has been taken out of the tooth, it is replaced with "filling" material. In the past, amalgam (silver) fillings were placed into the cleaned out portion of the tooth. With new advancements in dentistry, you can now have tooth-colored fillings instead of silver fillings resulting in a long lasting, brighter, whiter smile. The new tooth-colored material is bonded to the teeth for a stronger restoration.

A Nightguard is a simple solution that protects your teeth and jaw from the harmful results of nighttime teeth grinding. Dr. Herbeck provides a custom plastic mouth guard to comfortably fit over your upper teeth creating a barrier between your upper and lower teeth. The cushion between the teeth absorbs the force of grinding. A Nightguard reduces clenching, grinding and TMJ problems by helping relax the muscles in the jaw. Finally, rest comfortably again!
