I've had the BEST dental experience here. I have had bad and painful experiences with other dentists in the past, I got referred here by my friend to get fillings first and later extractions. Coming from bad experiences at other dental offices I was very nervous, but to my surprise my visit was very pleasant. I came once for 3 fillings and had no pain, a few months later I went back for my extractions and had a great experience as well. I was very nervous, but I was in and out in one hour.Dr. ram and her assistant francis were AMAZING! They took such good care of me. They worked so well together and were both so sweet and caring. Everyone in the office was professional and nice. The whole thing went quick, painless and perfect. They work with my insurance and if there is something my insurance doesn't cover they will work with the price and give you a reasonable price! Definitely recommend this place to everyone!

We first heard about Smile Builders when we received a flier in the mail. We've been taking our kids there ever since.

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
