Our Key Dental Services
From teeth cleanings to x-rays and oral cancer screenings we’re the hub for all your preventive dentistry care. Each visit will be tailored to your unique needs while always offering the highest level of care. Routine visits should be maintained twice a year in order to catch early signs of dental decay and disease and prevent them altogether.
Life loves to serve you the unexpected, doesn’t it? We’re here for you when it does with timely and caring emergency dentistry. We do everything possible to provide you with same-day or next-day treatment for cracked or broken teeth, knocked-out teeth, broken restorations, bleeding gums, and toothaches in Rapid City, SD.
Crowns and Bridges
Whether you have a weakened or broken tooth or are missing a tooth altogether, we offer custom and cosmetic crowns and bridges in Rapid City, SD to restore your smile. Crowns restore function and health to a damaged tooth or one that has been treated with a root canal. Bridges provide a tooth replacement by “bridging” the gap left behind by missing teeth.
A toothache is frequently caused by tooth decay that has created a cavity. When this happens, we can clear out the decay completely and put a filling in the empty space to reinforce the tooth. To preserve your smile esthetics, we’ll provide composite, tooth-colored fillings that don’t show through the tooth enamel. No one will know you ever had a cavity and your tooth pain will be gone for good!
Improve the appearance of your smile with personalized care from our cosmetic dentist in Rapid City, SD. Using a variety of cosmetic dentistry services, including inlays, onlays, composite bonding, teeth whitening, and porcelain veneers, we can perfect your smile and give your confidence a boost!
Sleep Apnea Treatment
Do you snore at night? Do you wake most mornings with a headache and feel fatigued even after sleeping through the night? You may have obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Night guards or custom oral appliances can open your airway and help you get the restful sleep you, and your partner, need!
Ongoing popping, pain, locking, or stiffness in your jaw may signal problems with your temporomandibular joints (TMJ), the hinges that allow your mouth to open and close. A TMJ disorder can occur for a number of reasons from malocclusion (bad bite) or unhealthy oral habits. We frequently recommend two conservative treatments: A customized mouthguard can relax your jaw and prevent teeth grinding and clenching and an occlusal adjustment can reshape the bite surfaces of the teeth to allow them to close together comfortably.

In doing so, we believe we’ll be able to offer you a better overall experience and be able to tailor our treatment plans to your unique needs and oral health habits. Regular dental visits and proper hygiene routines at home can turn into positive life-long oral habits and a healthier lifestyle in the future. With studies showing that dental health is directly connected to overall health, we know just how significant these influences can be on patients of any age. We’ll provide the guidance you need to maintain proper dental health for years to come.
