See What We Can Do For You

At Dr. Higgs’ office we offer a variety of services.

A few of the services we offer are

Oral Conscious Sedation is a tool we use to help the children relax so their dental treatment will not be a traumatic experience. The sedation medication is not intended to make the patient unconscious or unresponsive but relax the patient. This helps the dentist perform the necessary treatment in a safe and relaxed environment.

Sealants are a preventative measure to help keep your child cavity free. Sealants cover the grooved and pitted permanent molars on the chewing surface. The application is easy and comfortable and can be done in one visit. After the teeth are cleaned, they are kept dry and then the material is placed in the groves of the teeth. After the sealant is applied, a special light is used to dry the sealant. Patients can eat right after their appointment, but it is best to avoid sticky, chewy, or hard candy to help avoid the sealants from wearing down.

Pulp Therapy is done to maintain the vitality of an affected tooth. They pulp of a tooth is the inner central canal core that contains nerves, blood vessels, reparative cells and connective tissue. This therapy resembles a root canal on a permanent tooth.

Bravo! Teeth Whitening is a convenient 30 minutes, once a day treatment done for 10 days. This treatment is done at home and should cause minimal to no sensitivity. You can wear the custom designed trays at work, while commuting, or at home. This treatment is for patients 16 year old or older.

Nitrous Oxide, or laughing gas as most people refer to it, is used to help the patient relax without putting them to sleep. It is administered to the child by a small breathable noise piece before a procedure is begun.

We also offer other services such as Extractions, Crowns, Space Maintainers, Composite Resin filings and Amalgam filings.
