Implants are synthetic structures that are placed in the area of the tooth normally occupied by the root. Implants are anchored to the jawbone or metal framework on the bone and act as a foundation for an artificial tooth or permanent bridge. In some cases, implants can be used to attach dentures.

Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain or plastic cemented over the front of your teeth to change their color or shape. Veneers are used on teeth with uneven surfaces or are chipped, discolored, oddly shaped, unevenly spaced or crooked. Read More...
Crowns are synthetic caps, usually made of a material like porcelain, placed on the top of a tooth. Crowns are typically used to restore a tooth's function and appearance following a restorative procedure such as a root canal. When decay in a tooth has become so advanced that large portions of the tooth must be removed, crowns are often used to restore the tooth. Read More...
Whitening procedures have effectively restored the smile of people with stained, dull, or discolored teeth.The darker tissue of your teeth, the dentin, can become exposed as the outer layer of enamel is worn away by the effects of aging or things like caffeine and tobacco. Read More...

Simple toothaches can often be relieved by rinsing the mouth to clear it of debris and other matter. Sometimes, a toothache can be caused or aggravated by a piece of debris lodged between the tooth and another tooth. Avoid placing an aspirin between your tooth and gum to relieve pain, because the dissolving aspirin can actually harm your gum tissue. Read More...

Facilities and Equipment
Indian River Family Dentistry is a state of the art facility one mile north of Indian River on Old 27. This four acre wooded site provides beautiful and relaxing views from each of the seven treatment rooms.
We have been utilizing Digital X-ray technology since 2007, which significantly reduces our patients' exposure to radiation. These magnified images also help patients to understand what we're talking about.
Another innovative technology that patients and staff are really enjoying is our intra-oral photography system. These cameras (about the size of an electric toothbrush) magnify and project photographs of the teeth onto monitors. This allows you, as the patient, to actually see with your eyes what you can feel with your tongue. These magnified photos are truly amazing.
We are also featuring the most advanced technology for numbing the area of treatment. It is called "The Wand" and it is a new computer controlled local, anesthetic injection system that helps conquer fear, pain, and anxiety. This new way of administering the anesthetic is as fast and nearly painless as it gets.
Air abrasion (or microabrasion) is also available in our office. It is a gentle, drill-free, and anesthetic-free technique of removing tooth decay in its early stages. It works like a mini sandblaster, spraying tiny particles in a fine stream of compressed air to remove decay from the tooth surface. It is ideal for procedures like sealants on children and small composite fillings.
