My son had his orthodontic work completed by Dr. Layman. The results were better than expected. My son had crowding and gapping issues. Also, I have a pretty busy schedule and the girls at the front made it a priority to remind me when he was scheduled. On another note, Dr. Shirman is my dentist and he is extremely professional and polite. I had major work completed; crowns and molar extractions. The process of both procedures were explained to me prior to the services being completed. In addition, he followed up 24 hours later to ensure I was ok. By the way...the crown was made right at the office!! The days of getting it fitted at a later time are far gone. I have not compared their prices to others, but I am willing to pay more for friendly, professional, world class service. Thanks Dr. Shirman and Dr. Layman for keeping our smiles so beautiful!

Layman, Shirman & Associates has been the best dentist I've ever been to. They're very accommodating, and conscientious of my concerns regarding my teeth! Been going there for over 3 years and always recommend them to friends and relatives.
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
