We like to think of our practice as a place that offers a little bit of everything in quality dentistry. Dr. Keider has expertise in so many different areas of dentistry that we rarely have to refer you to a specialist. Because he takes the time to get to know you and works closely with you, Dr. Keider can perform all of the following services and minimize the number of visits without sacrificing the level of care you receive.

Preventive Care Services

Your jaw and the way you bite are critical to your dental health. Problems with either can lead to chipped or cracked teeth, or migraines from temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ). During your appointment, Dr. Keider will extensively examine your jaw and bite as well as your teeth, gums, and other tissues in your mouth. If he sees a problem, he may prescribe nightguards, which are custom-designed barriers that you place between your top and bottom teeth to prevent grinding while you sleep. He may also suggest any of the other preventive care services we offer:

  • Regular Checkups
  • Cleaning
  • Patient education
  • Dental sealants
  • Nightguards
  • Mouthguards
  • Breath treatment
  • DIAGNOdent

Restorative Services

When Dr. Keider prescribes a root canal to a new patient, many anticipate the worst.

Tooth Replacement Options

Gum Disease Services

Detecting and treating gum disease is a primary concern for Dr. Keider. Research indicates that the bacteria that constitute gum disease can not only damage teeth and gums but can also cause heart disease and other severe disorders. Unfortunately, since the early stages of gum disease (also called periodontal disease) aren’t painful, many patients forego treatment until the disease becomes severe. To try to prevent this from happening, Dr. Keider checks for gum disease in every dental examination.   He also offers the following services for gum disease treatment:

  • Diagnostic services
  • Periodontal charting
  • Scaling and planning
  • Select gum surgery procedures

Cosmetic ServicesTeeth whitening before and after

If you want to makeover your smile, Dr. Keider can create the perfect one for you. Before beginning any cosmetic procedure, he will spend a lot of time examining your mouth and discussing what you would like to change. After formulating a treatment plan, Dr. Keider can create before and after wax-up models of your mouth so that you can see the changes before they happen.

Dr. Keider will utilize one or more of the following services to enhance your smile:

  • Tooth-colored fillings
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Zoom in-office whitening
  • Bravo take-home whitening
  • Bonding
  • All-porcelain crowns, onlays, and inlays
  • Recontouring
  • Implants
