Keep minor issues from becoming major dental work.
Dental Implants

A dental implant is the best way to replace a missing tooth. It looks, feels, and functions exactly like a natural tooth. You’ll eat comfortably, speak clearly, and prevent future dental problems.

Our implant dentist, Dr. Bunn, has extensive training and utilizes technology, including CBCT scans for successful implantation. He’ll ensure your dental implant is durable, healthy, and lifelike.

Full Mouth Restoration

Are you embarrassed by your smile? Do you have difficulty chewing or speaking? We can give you the confidence that you never thought possible. Dr. Merrill has dedicated many hours to advanced training, education, and accreditations.

All these accomplishments had one goal in mind: To help patients receive the best results possible. Full mouth restoration cases are unique to the individual and can include a variety of dental treatments, including dental hygiene, cosmetic dentistry, and restorative dentistry.

During your consultation, Dr. Merrill will meet with you to decide what is the best treatment plan for your needs and goals.

Oral Surgery and Extractions

Tooth extractions may become necessary if a tooth is significantly decayed, crowding other teeth, or impacted. Dr. Merrill and Dr. Bunn are extensively trained in oral surgery to remove your tooth as efficiently and painlessly as possible.

TMJ Treatment

Headache relief at last! Many people who experience frequent headaches, jaw pain, and neck and shoulder pain do not realize this could be a dental problem. If you have poor occlusion (bite), your jaw muscles are working overtime to compensate for this misalignment. This leads to discomfort.

By correcting your bite, the TMD symptoms you are experiencing will be relieved.

Sleep Apnea

Did you know an oral appliance may be an option for those who cannot tolerate a CPAP device or would like to use as an alternative when they travel?

Feel fully rested once again with an oral sleep appliance from Dr. John Merrill.

Mercury Free Dentistry

Dr. Merrill has not placed a mercury filling (silver fillings) since 1995. His skill and experience assure you of safe mercury removal.

We look at mercury in dentistry as a risk factor that can easily be avoided or eliminated and have a long-standing commitment to mercury-free dentistry.

Hygiene Cleanings

Maintaining routine dental cleanings and check-ups are crucial to having optimum long-term oral health. Our experienced hygienist is complimented regularly for her gentleness and wonderful quality of care she provides each and every patient.

We also offer non-surgical periodontal care by utilizing lasers and multifaceted antibiotics. This results in restored teeth that are easily cleaned and promote better overall and oral health.

“After discussing the issues I was having with my teeth, Dr. Merrill did a thorough exam and took the time to explain everything he had found. Together we made a plan to restore my teeth. Today, I walked out with a schedule that will have me feeling better and have a great smile as well in the very near future.”
