Dr. Douglas R. Prince
Dr. Prince is amazing! He and his staff are friendly, efficient, patient and very knowledgeable. They have 4 locations and very flexible hours so they can always work around my schedule.I had braces for 3 years as a teenager and since my jaw wasn't done growing, by the time I was in my early twenties I was suffering from jaw pain, receding gums and extreme tooth sensitivity. My dentist told me my teeth were hitting each other incorrectly and basically destroying themselves. She said braces were the only thing that would work, Invisalign would not be able to fix my mouth and if I did nothing, I had a long life of crowns and other major dental work ahead of me. I went to two Orthodontists before finding Dr. Prince. I was told that not only would I need braces for at least 2 years, I would also need to have a tooth pulled to make room for my teeth to move or jaw surgery. Both ortho's said this could not be fixed with Invisalign since these trays only move your teeth.I then found Dr. Prince who is an Elite Preferred Provider of Invisalign (basically the best of the best and a very difficult title to obtain). I am only 4 months into my Invisalign treatment and my jaw pain is already gone. Dr. Prince has figured out how to make Invisalign work like braces to move my jaw but without the wires or pain. I go in every 6 weeks for about a 20 minute check up and sometimes a quick procedure to file a little off my teeth to create more room.I am very pleased with my trays, Dr. Prince and his staff. I can't wait for the final result and am so grateful to have found a doctor who has mastered Invisalign and is fixing my smile without braces.

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
