When it comes to experiencing a dental emergency, we know it can be scary. If you’re unsure of what qualifies as a dental emergency, call our office.

Struggling with missing or damaged teeth can greatly affect your self-esteem as well as impact your oral health. Dr. Kruger offers restorative dentistry services for patients to feel whole again. If you’re ready to restore the look, feel, and function of your smile, our team has you covered.
TMJ & TMD
Living with facial pain can quickly impact your life. If you experience temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD), Dr. Kruger can help relieve your pain. We often provide custom oral appliances for patients with TMD as this is a non-invasive alternative to oral surgery. Our goal is to provide the most comfortable and effective care possible.
Sleep apnea is a condition in which your airway becomes obstructed during sleep, cutting off your flow of oxygen and causing you to frequently wake up during the night. If left untreated, sleep apnea can lead to other serious health complications, including heart disease, diabetes, and more
Sometimes to restore the health and function of a patient’s smile, oral surgery is needed. Oral surgery is any procedure that involves the manipulation of tissues in your mouth.

What happens during a routine teeth cleaning?
During your professional teeth cleaning appointment, our dental hygiene team will thoroughly rid your teeth of any built-up plaque and bacteria to ensure you leave our office with a bright, healthy smile. The cleaning begins with an oral health examination to check for cavities or signs of gum infection.
The dental hygienist will then begin removing plaque and tartar by scraping them off before using a high-powered electric toothbrush with special toothpaste that ensures any leftover tartar is removed. They’ll then floss and rinse your mouth, leaving you with a healthy smile.
There may be additional steps taken during these cleanings depending on the status of your oral health.
