Over many years I had been to several dentists that had done less than optimum work on my teeth. In fact, many procedures made my teeth worse than they were before any work was done. Then I came to Dr. Paul Avery and he diligently repairedseveral of my teeth and saved me from losing a couple of teeth that, I believe no other dentist could have saved. I consider him the BEST dentist I have ever encountered!I will continue to see him forever.

My entire family goes to Dr. Avery! He is awesome. He is so funny and gentle, he totally takes the fear out of going to the dentist. Even my boys will agree that the shots don't hurt! This prices are so affordable and they are really accommodating when I need to make an appointment last minute. I highly recommend this office!

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
