Our Services

Dental Cleanings are imperative to achieving and maintaining optimal oral health. We recommend that each patient receives a teeth cleaning at least twice a year as a preventive measure. Cleanings will remove plaque on your teeth and gums where a tooth brush and floss cannot reach.

Periodontal Services are necessary for our patients who have been diagnosed with gum disease. To combat this progressive, Dr. Cain offers intensive cleanings known as scaling and root planing that will remove the plaque and tartar below the gum line.

If that does not work, Dr. Robert Cain offers periodontal microsurgery, tissue regeneration, and the gingivectomy procedure for the treatment of advanced periodontal concerns like periodontitis.

Periodontal Plastic Surgery is used to address health and cosmetic issues with the gum tissue. Dr. Cain offers procedures to add or remove gum tissue and improve the appearance of the teeth and smile.

Implant Dentistry allows Dr. Cain to replace one or even all of your missing teeth. A dental implant is a tiny metal post that is surgically placed into the jaw bone to replace the tooth root.

Cosmetic dental services are also offered, with the benefit of a comprehensive team approach to your needs. Dr. Robert Cain can work with you to not only improve the appearance of your teeth and gums, but also your long-term oral health and wellness. We have solutions for everything from a gummy smile to crooked teeth and missing teeth.

Tooth Extractions are necessary when a patient has damaged teeth that cannot be saved. Dr. Cain is able to extract your teeth and place the implants in one surgery. He also offers removal of the wisdom teeth, the last molars to emerge that can sometimes be compacted or cause overcrowding.
