Our General Dentistry Services Include:

Digital X-Rays

American Dental offers in-office digital x-rays for your convenience. Digital x-rays are computer-generated images that require up to 90% less radiation than conventional film-type x-rays. Instead of using the traditional silver-oxide x-ray film, which must be developed & then fixed in caustic & environmentally damaging solutions, the new system takes pictures via a small electronic sensor. A picture of the tooth is instantaneously transmitted onto the monitor in the treatment room so we can see your teeth & surrounding structures immediately.


IV (Intravenous) Sedation

If you feel uneasy in a dentist’s chair, have difficulty getting numb or fear needles & drills, then ask our dentists about IV sedation dentistry. The skills & training required to perform IV sedation are quite rare in the dental field, making the American Dental dentists part of a select group capable of administering complete relaxation to our patients. With this extremely safe procedure, your anxiety will melt away as you enter sedation that is far deeper than when done orally. You’ll never fear a visit to the dentist again!


Laser Dentistry

Laser Dentistry is ushering in a new revolution of drill-less dentistry. With this laser technology, dentists can now perform a wide range of dental procedures on teeth, gum & bone more comfortably than ever. With the traditional dental drill, the primary cause of discomfort is a combination of heat, vibration & pressure, but laser dentistry makes this issue a thing of the past. With laser dentistry, you will experience fewer shots & less discomfort, as well as reduced bleeding, swelling &, in many cases, the need for pain medication. Contact American Dental to learn more about laser dentistry.



Our goal is to help you reach your own goals for your smile & your life & to do so in a manner that fits with your budget. With so many options available to help restore & beautify your smile, American Dental will have something that works for you.
