Dental Implants

Dental Implants

Dental implants offer the function, look, and beauty of natural teeth and a nearly complete return to oral function and dental health. No other tooth replacement solution in dentistry can provide these benefits, all of which can be achieved in our office without any referrals out to another office for care. At the forefront of implant dentistry, Dr. Connelly is a Master of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists and has received live surgical implant training from Dr. Carlos Roa, one of the most renowned oral and maxillofacial surgeons in Mexico and a pioneer in his field in Latin America.

CEREC Same-Day Crowns

CEREC Same-Day Crowns

Using CEREC, we are in control of your treatment from start to finish, offering a higher quality restoration, a more custom fit, and more accurately designed crown for your unique smile needs.

IV Sedation

IV Sedation

Dr. Connelly is certified to administer IV sedation and has completed over 1,300 problem-free sedation cases. IV sedation lets you “sleep” comfortably through your treatment and leave our office without any (or very little) recollection of your appointment. Unlike any other conscious sedation options, IV sedation gives you a completely anxiety-free experience, no matter how simple, complex, or time-consuming your procedure is. With fully customized levels of sedation administered intravenously for optimal anxiety and pain control, you won’t have to worry about uncomfortable, stressful dental visits ever again.

Laser Periodontal Treatment

Laser Periodontal Treatment

Treating gum disease has never been easier and more comfortable than with the REPAIR™ protocol using the Waterlase Express® dental laser. This minimally invasive alternative to traditional osseous surgery eliminates the need for scalpels and incisions, improving patient comfort and healing times. The FDA-cleared Waterlase dental lasers combine laser energy with water and air to safely eradicate bacteria and diseased tissue without causing pain or damage to the surrounding healthy gums. Laser dentistry allows you to experience more comfortable and convenient treatment, minimal pain and bleeding, and return to daily activities the day of your procedure.
