J. Marie Stidham, DMD, PA offers a full array of dental services to help you maintain healthy teeth. You can read more on this page about our distinctive services and technology.

 

Initial Oral Examination
Your initial oral examination includes a visual examination,of your teeth, gums and occlusion (bite).  Dr. Stidham will examine the soft tissues of your mouth and throat ( cancer screening), and evaluate your temperomandibular joint (TMJ ).  A small camera will be used to take  intra oral photos of your teeth and digital x-rays will be made as necessary to allow proper diagnosis.  Treatment options will be discussed to help you select the appropriate plan for you.  Our Patient Care Coordinator will assist you in scheduling treatment, and fully explain the flexible payment options available to you.

Bridges
Dental bridges are a fixed solution for replacing a missing tooth or teeth - unlike dentures, they cannot be removed.  An artificial tooth is held in the open space at the gum  line by attaching it to teeth on either side of the missing tooth.  Read More...

Digital X-Rays
Dental X-rays are pictures of the teeth, bones, and the soft tissues around them.  X-rays are done to find problems in the mouth such as tooth decay, damage to the bones supporting the teeth, and dental injuries (such as broken tooth roots). Read More...

Soft Tissue Laser
Lasers do not make whining sounds or other annoying noises.  You may experience the sound of a rush of air, since air suction is often used to keep the area cool and cleaner.  Read More...

Mouth Guards
Bruxism is the clenching together of both the upper and lower teeth.  Clenching can cause pressure on the muscles, tissues, and other surrounding structures of the jaw, and can cause jaw joint disorders, headaches, neck pain, jaw pain, ear pain, tense muscles, and excessive wear on the teeth.

Oral Health & Total Body Health
Since the mouth is so often an indicator of what is happening to the rest of the body, it is important to check out anything in the mouth that is not normal. Read More...

Stabilize Your Loose Dentures
Many people are faced with the necessity of removing  their natural teeth.  While there are numerous options for replacement, a full denture is often the treatment of choice or is the only choice possible for the patient.  Read More...

Implants
Dr Stidham works with local dental surgeons who place the implants.  After the implant has healed, you will return to our office where Dr Stidham will custom make a crown for your implant. Read More...

Whitening

Cleaning
How often should you have a professional cleaning?  This depends on your own personal thoroughness with daily brushing, the foods you eat, medications you may take, and of course, smoking.  Thorough cleaning is much more than simply cosmetic, although that is very important too. Read More...

Sealants
Dental sealants are thin plastic coatings that are applied to the grooves on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth to protect them from tooth decay.  Read More...
