Our Services

From a routine exam and cleaning to full-mouth rehabilitation, Dr. Krell's practice is equipped to handle all of your dental needs. To help you understand more about our office, we have included brief descriptions of some of our most common services on this page.

Initial Oral Examination & Evaluation

Your first visit to our office is very important with regard to establishing your oral health baseline. We will begin by carefully reviewing your medical and dental histories and a thorough discussion of your dental concerns, as well as any symptoms that you may be experiencing. This will be followed by a comprehensive clinical examination, including an oral cancer screening, periodontal evaluation, an analysis of your occlusion (bite) plus a thorough examination of your teeth, their supporting structures, and the complete orofacial area. Any needed diagnostic dental films will be taken at this time.

Dr. Krell's Preventive Program

Good oral hygiene is essential not only for your dental health, it is important to your overall health and well-being. Our comprehensive dental hygiene program is designed to preserve your teeth and the supporting structures by preventing the onset, progression, and recurrence of dental disease.

Dr Krell recommends a Water Pik Water Flosser and a Sonicare as part of a good home care regimen. We will thoroughly review your current home care practice, and make recommendations in areas where you might need improvement.

It is also important to keep in mind that in conjunction with periodic dental professional cleanings, a good dental home care regimen is necessary. As part of the preventive program at this office your current home care practices will be reviewed. Following that, we will make recommendations as to what areas require improvements, and instruct you in the proper methods of brushing and flossing.

Additional preventive services may be indicated for individual patients. An integral part of our preventive program for pediatric patients includes periodic fluoride treatments and the application of dental sealants.

Tooth-Colored Dental Restorations

Dental fillings are the most common type of dental restoration used to replace sections of teeth that are missing, damaged or decayed. Some of the newest state-of-the-art filling materials including ceramic and the latest composite materials, are not only strong and durable, they offer the most aesthetically pleasing and natural looking results.

Ask Dr. Krell which material would be best for you!

Same-Day Crowns

If dental decay, cracked fillings, root canals, clenching or grinding the teeth have caused extensive damage to the underlying tooth structure a dental filling may not be a sufficient restoration. The only way to completely restore the cosmetic appearance and function of this tooth is often full coverage with a dental crown.

Dr. Krell offers his patients same-day Cerec crowns, which look & feel like a natural tooth.

One-Visit Porcelain Veneers

If your teeth suffer from gaps, chips, stains, or discolorations ask Dr. Krell if you're a candidate for porcelain veneers, a highly effective and minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that can achieve beautiful results.

These thin custom-made porcelain facings are designed by Dr. Krell to fit perfectly over the front of your teeth in one visit, making them one of the most conservative cosmetic teatments available.

Ask Dr. Krell if one-visit porcelain veneers are suitable for you!

Fixed Bridges

Dr. Krell believes that misisng teeth can impact your overall dental health and the function of your jaw. Adjacent teeth may start to drift or tilt into the space, and opposing teeth may start to shift into the area of the missing tooth. So, it's very important to replace the single tooth or multiple teeth that have been lost. One option to restoring full function to a small edentulous area in the mouth is a fixed dental bridge.

A dental bridge replaces the missing teeth with artificial teeth called “pontics,” and is supported and attached on each end to prepared natural teeth. Once fabricated and fitted a dental bridge will be permanently “fixed,” or cemented into place. Like crowns, bridges are designed to look and feel like natural teeth.

Ask Dr. Krell if a bridge would be best for you!

Implant Dentistry

Dr Krell may recommend another option to replacing a missing tooth, a dental implant. Losing a tooth due to injury, dental decay, or gum disease can happen. We recommend replacing the missing tooth as quickly as possible, to avoid some of the problems mentioned above.

An implant is a small surgical fixture made of biocompatible metal or ceramic materials that is placed into the jawbone, providing a stable and durable foundation for a replacement tooth. Dr. Krell places implants to support a crown for an individual tooth, as abutment teeth for a dental bridge, or to help stabilize a denture.

Of all of the restorative choices available today, an implant comes the closest to replicating the look, feel and function of a natural tooth, and does not require preperation of the adjacenet teeth.

Ask Dr. Krell if you are a candidate for implants!

Teeth Whitening

Dr. Krell has been treating teeth that have been stained or darkened by food, tobacco use, age, medications or injury since he began his dental practice. He can lighten and brighten your smile with a non-invasive process known as teeth whitening.

Teeth whitening or bleaching simply refers to any process that will make the teeth appear whiter. The safest and most-effective teeth whitening systems are available in Dr. Krell's office. We offer a higher concentration of whitening components and deliver them to you in the most efficient manner to achieve optimal results.

Depending upon your condition, Dr. Krell may recommend our in-office Zoom2 whitening system (which includes take-home trays for touch-ups), or just the take home system by itself.

Ask Dr. Krell which system would be best for you!

Partial or Full Dentures

Whether from disease, malnutrition, genetic disorders, or an accident sometimes it is necessary for an individual to have some or all of their teeth extracted. While this can be devastating, partial or full dentures can be fabricated to restore an attractive smile, provide needed support for normal facial contours and reestablish a highly functional occlusion.

If this situation applies to you, Dr. Krell wil evaluate your condition, and make recommendations on which type of full or partial denture might be best for you. In some cases, a full or partial denture can be fabricated to fit over detnal implants for increased stability.

If you or a family member have questions or concerns about replacing an existing denture, or possibly needing one in the future, call us for a consultation appointment!

Pediatric Dental Care

At Dr. Krell's office we take pride in creating and maintaining beautiful and healthy smiles for our younger patients (as early as age 2) in an environment that is lighthearted and fun. With an emphasis on establishing oral health habits that last a lifetime, our primary tools are education and a comprehensive preventive care program.

As part of an effort to guard against childhood dental decay, Dr. Krell may recommend periodic fluoride treatments and dental sealants placed on the biting surfaces of the back teeth.

Dr. Krell would love to see your children!

Invisalign and Clear Aligner Orthodontics

Dr Krell has offered Invisalign to his patients for 20 years, and now has another clear aligner system available. MTM (minor tooth movement) aligners may work for you, which involve fewer teeth, less time and expense.

If you want to know more about Invisalign or other clear aligner systems, contact our office to find out which system is best for you!

Extractions & Oral Surgery

Dr Krell loves to save teeth. But, for a variety of reasons, it is sometimes necessary to extract a tooth. Extractions are commonly prescribed in cases where a deciduous “baby” tooth is reluctant to fall out, a severely broken down and non-restorable fractured tooth is present, or “wisdom tooth” is poorly positioned and unable to fully erupt into place.

Should a tooth extraction be necessary, Dr Krell will consult with you in advance of the appointment regarding the procedure itself, all post-operative instructions, and follow-up care to ensure your comfort and healing.

Bitesplints or Night Guards

Chronic jaw clenching and grinding one’s teeth is called bruxism. While it can happen any time of day, it often occurs at night causing an individual to wake up with any number of symptoms including jaw pain, headaches, and sore teeth. Although, stress and anxiety are the most common causes of bruxism there may be other contributing factors such as a sleep disorder, an abnormal bite, or teeth that are missing or poorly aligned.

Dr Krell may prescribe an occlusal guard, or bitesplint, to protect your teeth and help alleviate the symptoms of bruxism. This custom-made appliance is designed to fit over your upper teeth and is worn while sleeping. Wearing a night guard prevents a number of damaging events including muscle strain, excessive pressure on the jaw joint (the TMJ), and such dental damage as chipped or cracked teeth resulting from the teeth grinding against each other.

Root Canals or Endodontics

Dr. Krell has performed root canal therpay for over 40 years. It is done to save a tooth from extraction and resolve a dental infection. We hope you never need this service, but know it is available if you do. In some cases, an implant may be recommended instead of root canal therapy.

Please call us to consult which one is appropriate for you.

Snoring & Sleep Apnea

If you or someone in your family is snoring, chances are there are related sleep issues. Sleep apnea is a serious and potentially life threatening disorder involving repeated pauses in breathing while asleep.

Talk to Dr. Krell about sleep apnea and airway issues. There are several ways he has helped his patients treat this disorder. After a sleep study, he can help you determine what type of oral device will be most effective. many of our patients do not tolerate a CPAP machine well, and prefer another alternative.

We want to help you get a better night's sleep, and feel great during the day, so ask us about solutions for your sleep problems!

Laser Dentistry

One of the significant advances in modern dentistry has been the development of dental laser technology. Today, dental lasers are being increasingly used to treat tooth decay, periodontal disease, perform biopsies or the removal of oral lesions, to cure restorative (filling) materials, as well as to activate in-office teeth whitening systems.

Ask Dr. Krell if your dental condition can be treated with our laser technology!

Periodontal Treatment

Dr Krell calls Periodontal Disease the “silent killer of teeth”. By the time someone feels discomfort from gum disease, the condition is advancing and can result in tooth loss. Periodontal disease damages the surrounding soft tissues and bone that support the teeth. It is predominantly caused by the accumulation of bacteria, mucus and other particles in the form of plaque or tartar that sit between the teeth and the gums. Periodontal disease can range in severity from a simple gum inflammation, known as gingivitis, to a more serious inflammation of the periodontal tissues. Left untreated periodontal disease can result in significant tissue damage and eventual tooth loss.

Call us today to schedule an appointment with Dr. Krell to evaluate you for the presence or absence of gum disease. We want to help you keep your teeth and gums healthy for life!

As a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, he offers his patients a full spectrum of cosmetic dental solutions to effectively improve the appearance and integrity of your teeth.

He cares about you!

ViziLite Cancer Screening

Dr Krell and his hygienist, Marsha, visually screen for oral cancer at every periodic hygiene visit. Should they suspect an abnormality, they may prescribe a ViziLite Oral Cancer Screening procedure.
