Advanced dental care options offered by Dr. Gorman are able to treat sleep apnea and snoring, TMJ-related pain and headaches, improper occlusion and bite imbalances, poor myofunctional habits, and even anxiety about visiting the dentist.
Sleep Apnea & Snoring
Sleep Apnea is a potentially life-threatening sleep disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts. You may have sleep apnea if you snore loudly, and feel tired even after a full night’s sleep.
Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) and Muscle Disorders (TMJDs) refers to a complex and traditionally poorly understood set of conditions that can cause pain in the area of the jaw joint and associated muscles, as well as problems using the jaw.
Child Growth & Development
Facilitating proper oral growth and development in children sets the foundation for a healthy, beautiful smile that lasts a lifetime. Utilizing various myofunctional orthodontic techniques (including Myobrace therapy and ALF Lightwire Orthodontics), Dr. Gorman can help correct poor pediatric oral habits such as mouth breathing, improper tongue positioning, irregular lip activity when swallowing, and more—all of which help promote optimal facial development in children for straighter teeth and a healthier smile.
Conscious Sedation & General Anesthesia
With sedation dentistry, you can reduce anxiety, increase treatment comfort, and have little or no memory of your procedure. This is a great option for patients with dental phobias.
Centered around natural biological form, the aim of bioesthetic dentistry is to achieve proper positioning of the teeth so they work in complete balance with facial muscular and jaw alignment. In doing so, patients can experience lasting oral health, beauty, and comfort.
Most orthodontic issues are primarily caused by poor oral behaviors, such as thumb sucking, improper swallowing, and even breathing through the mouth. Myofunctional therapy refers to a special program of painless exercises designed to create proper teeth alignment and facial muscular function—effectively correcting bad habits for lasting results. Unlike most orthodontic techniques, myofunctional therapy can even be an option for children whose teeth and jaws are still developing!
Utilizing isolated forces applied by a series of removable dental appliances, the Myobrace system is an innovative myofunctional therapy method designed to straighten teeth and improve oral function while treating the underlying causes of tooth misalignments.
ALF Lightwire Orthodontics
ALF Lightwire Orthodontics aims to develop the upper jaw and the mid-face FORWARD. We all have the genetic potential to accommodate ALL our teeth, but a lot of obstacles can be in the way. Rather than possibly pulling teeth to create space, we work on removing the obstacles.
Cosmetic dentistry treatments at our practice can address a variety of different esthetic and functional concerns, including chips, gaps, stains, misalignments, tooth damage and decay, missing teeth, and more.
If you’ve always wanted straighter teeth but hate the thought of metal braces, Invisalign® may be the treatment you’re looking for. Invisalign® is made of a clear material that fits snugly on top of your teeth for a virtually undetectable orthodontic therapy.
Losing a tooth calls for action, and dental implants are a great method towards regaining a healthy bite and beautiful smile. They look and feel like your own teeth!
Dentures can be a suitable option for replacing several adjacent teeth or a full arch of missing and/or damaged teeth. Using modern dental materials of the highest quality, Dr. Gorman can create custom full and partial dentures that look, feel, and function naturally for optimal smile esthetics and oral wellness.
Implant Supported Dentures
As an alternative to removable dentures, Dr. Gorman also offers implant supported dentures—a full-arch restoration held securely in place by dental implants. For qualified candidates, this innovative treatment offers exceptional comfort, durability, function, and esthetics for those seeking to replace an entire row of upper and/or lower teeth.
Porcelain Veneers & Dental Bonding
With porcelain veneers or dental bonding, you can actually look forward to smiling again. Because irregularities like crooked, cracked, or discolored teeth can weather your spirits, Dr. Gorman’s expertise in smile enhancement with veneers and bonding will give you the confidence to go ahead and flash your teeth to the world.
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over a decayed or damaged tooth—covering it to restore its shape, size, strength, and/or to improve its appearance.
We offer advanced teeth whitening options that can be applied in the office or worn overnight from the comfort of home while achieving brilliant, lasting results. Our state-of-the-art methods preserve your oral health while helping you obtain a smile you’re proud to show off.
Full Facial Rejuvenation
A reflection of your personality, mood, and health, a smile bears the capacity to stamp an impression on people. If chipped, stained, or crooked teeth are “hiding” the real you, it’s time for a smile makeover with Dr. Gorman.
General dentistry—which includes preventative dental care—is critical to maintaining optimal oral and total-body health for a lifetime, and it starts with proper oral hygiene, biocompatible products and materials, and highly advanced diagnostic/treatment technologies.
Maintaining good oral hygiene is one of the most important things you can do for your teeth and gums. Healthy teeth and gums—free of periodontal disease—not only enable you to look and feel good, they are important to your overall well-being.
Holistic, Mercury-Safe Dentistry
Oral health and full-body wellness are closely connected. As a result, we pride ourselves on being a holistic, mercury-free dentistry practice, employing only treatments and techniques that promote positive biological effects in the mouth and throughout the entire body.
Dental Technology & Oral Care Products
At Gorman Dental, we have the latest, state-of-the-art dental technology and oral care products to provide our patients with the very best care. Among numerous systems and solutions, we offer Tekscan® diagnostic imaging, Joint Vibration Analysis (JVA) for TMJ testing, Cone Beam CT scanning for sleep apnea, professional-grade oral rinses, and much more.
