Annual oral exams and cleanings are the best way to detect and prevent serious damage and reduce potential health risks. It is recommended to have 1-2 oral exams and cleanings every year in order to identify problems as early as possible and protect yourself from the harm that can be caused by undiagnosed cavities, gum disease, infection, and oral cancer.
Periodontal (gum) disease can affect even those who take great care to brush and floss regularly. If you have developed gum disease, we offer a variety of non-surgical treatment options that are gentle and effective. Our advanced options can renew the health of your gums and stop the progression of gum disease before it gets worse. Remember, untreated gum disease can lead to tooth loss and even risks to your overall health.
Endodontics/Root Canal Therapy
A tooth that is affected by severe decay, damage, or injury can cause a very serious infection, and lead to the loss of the tooth and even life-threatening health complications if left untreated. Root canal therapy is designed to clean out bacteria and infection and restore strength and support to the tooth. At Contemporary & Esthetic Dentistry, we offer laser root canals, a virtually pain-free alternative to traditional methods.

Sleep apnea can be characterized by snoring or pauses while breathing during sleep. In fact, people can experience breathing pauses of up to 10 seconds while they are sleeping – and they may not even know about the problem unless someone is there to see it. Sleep apnea can lead to headaches, fatigue, depression, heart disease, high blood pressure, and a variety of other serious conditions, including sudden cardiac death.
Dr. Marianna Farber can help in the diagnosis and treatment of sleep apnea. Our practice offers custom-designed oral appliances that can help keep your airways functioning in a safer manner while you sleep. These treatments can be very effective at reducing health risks associated with sleep apnea, as well as giving you a more restful night’s sleep.
