We offer patients a wide range of dental treatments and will always strive to find the best possible solution for each patient that walks through our doors. Some of the more common procedures we assist with are:

Check Ups

Dr. Arrison believes that routine preventive dental care is the foundation for lifelong oral health and plays an important role in reducing the risk of several dental health concerns such as gum disease. Routine visits enable he and his staff to monitor a patient’s oral health and offer conservative treatment options or additional at home care to maintain healthy teeth and gums.

Check ups usually consist of a thorough examination of the mouth, along with x-rays to ensure the teeth are healthy inside and out. We recommend scheduling a checkup once every 6 months as tooth decay is progressive - so the sooner is it discovered and treated, the less damage it will do.


You’ll love the way your teeth feel after a thorough cleaning from our in-house oral hygienist. We use the latest technology so your teeth feel squeaky clean, and will also show you how to maintain your smile with brushing and flossing at home. It is important for children to learn to care for their teeth at home from an early age and scheduling cleanings with our oral hygienist is a fun, easy way for them to learn.

Root Canal

A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures performed within our practice.

Root canal therapy is performed when trauma or decay reaches the nerve within the tooth. Symptoms of the infection can be identified as visible injury or swelling of the tooth, sensitivity to temperature or pain in the tooth and gums. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need of dental implants or bridges.


Tooth decay affects the structure of the tooth and when the decay becomes bad enough, the decayed area may need to be removed and the structure of the tooth may need to be replaced with a filling.

A filling is placed after decay has been removed from the tooth. We use high-strength resin to repair the teeth instead of old-fashioned silver mercury fillings. Our white fillings look and feel great, while blending in perfectly with your teeth.


A sealant is a plastic material applied on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth. The resin flows into the grooves of the teeth and once the pits and grooves are covered, food and plaque cannot get in. The sealant forms a barrier against acid attacks which promote cavity formation.

The adult teeth most susceptible to cavities are the first and second adult molars. These teeth have deeper pits and grooves that trap plaque and bits of food. Being the most posterior teeth, these pits and grooves are hard to keep clean because toothbrush bristles cannot get into them. However, any tooth with grooves or pits may benefit from sealant placement.

Dr. Arrison applies sealant in a single visit, the teeth are conditioned for the sealant application and the sealant is painted directly on the chewing surface of the teeth. A special light may be used to help the sealant harden.

Make sure your child still brushes and flosses daily and keeps their regularly scheduled check-ups. Although sealants are a wonderful adjust to your child’s preventive oral health plan, poor hygiene and severe grinding may cause them to wear and chip. They may need to be reapplied to continue to protect your child’s teeth.


A tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth from the jaw, usually due to damage from injury or decay. Typically, we treat extraction is a last resort and will first try to repair the tooth with a filling, crown or dental treatment.

Sometimes a tooth extraction is necessary for the normal growth of other teeth; Some people are born with extra teeth which prevent other teeth from coming in, and often certain teeth will need to be extracted to allow for the growth of others. People getting braces may need teeth extracted to make more room for the teeth being moved into place.
