General dentistry forms the foundation of a good oral care routine. It is made up of basic dental treatments designed to keep your mouth healthy and your smile bright. These services include dental cleanings and exams (which you should have twice a year), gum disease treatment, fluoride treatments and varnishes, tooth sealants, and custom athletic mouthguards.
Dr. McDowell has received advanced training in treating TMJ issues over the last 12 years, so he can help relieve TMJ pain. In addition, we use a computer program called BioPak that helps us analyze the muscle activity in your head and neck. Once we know the areas that are causing your pain, we can tailor your treatment accordingly using a custom oral device. We can help your jaw feel better as well as reduce tension and migraine headaches.
Dr. McDowell has successfully treated many people for sleep apnea over the years. If your sleep screening from him reveals that your sleep problems are caused by sleep apnea, we can have an oral appliance made for you that will help keep your air passages open while you sleep. You’ll get better sleep, snore less, and reduce your risk of serious health consequences associated with apnea.

Called Dr. McDowell's office end of June and explain to him that my son was getting married in August and I wanted to replace my discolored top teeth with some beautiful white veneers. He not only gave me beautiful white teeth but confidence in myself that I never had. His staff made you feel like family with an welcoming atmosphere. Thank you again Dr. McDowell and staff.
