I am in my sixties and have had numerous dentists during this time period. Dr. St. John has been the best of them all. She is kind, up on all of the newest, procedures and her"chair side" manner is the best I have ever known. If you are in the West County area and don't have a dentist, you are missing out on one of the best there is. Dr. St. John is top notch!

I have absolutely no complaints about Dr. St. John! She has been great w our family! She called, personally, after my 5 year old had to have a root canal, to check on him the next day. She is very sweet and gentle with him! The staff is wonderful! I haves not dentist anxiety and they made me feel super comfortable!

I absolutely love this office! Dr. Morgester and his team have always put our family first - they're careful not to recommend a procedure unless it is necessary. Truly refreshing when I compare them to our previous dentist.

Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
