Our top-of-the-line preventative measures ward off the buildup of dangerous bacteria. When you combine consistent at-home practices with preventative dentistry, you’ll maintain a winning smile for life.


The family of AO Pro products utilize novel combinations of specific antioxidants for any oral concern. PerioSciences complete oral care systems redefine oral care.

While historically, oral care research has focused on bacteria, PerioSciences utilizes many natural ingredients with well documented antibacterial properties, but our approach focuses on the mouth’s natural defense system – salivary antioxidants.

TMJ Disorders

The temporomandibular joints, called TMJ, are the joints and jaw muscles that make it possible to open and close your mouth. Located on each side of the head, your TMJ work together when you chew, speak or swallow and include muscles and ligaments as well as the jaw bone.

Any problem that prevents this complex system of muscles, ligaments, discs and bones from working properly may result in a painful TMJ disorder. Some of these disorders include: arthritis, dislocation, injury, tooth and jaw misalignment, stress and teeth grinding.
