Whitlow Dental Care offers a dynamic combination of advanced technologies in one convenient location. Many practices would refer you to several offices to accomplish the same care. The best that dentistry has to offer combined with personal service and down to earth discussion of your care will make your experience with Whitlow Dental Care unique from other practices. Here are just some of the wonderful techniques that we offer.
With Sedation Dentistry, You Feel Nothing!
Even the most fearful clients can say goodbye to the white-knuckle experience of going to the dentist.
If you've avoided the dentist for years due to bad experiences in the past, you can now comfortably snooze through even the most complex care, thanks to sedation dentistry.
Complex treatment that used to require many visits or even months of treatment can now be completed in as little as one single visit. Experience sedation dentistry just once and you will never be afraid to go to the dentist again!
Medical Topical Anesthetic Pastes Ensure No More Pain
Say goodbye to feeling the dreaded anesthetic needle. We use a medical breakthrough that is a special medical grade anesthetic paste. It allows for less painful injections. Clients can't believe that they just had an injection.
Dental Implants (Tooth replacement) The ultimate in dentistry.
Dental Implants can replace missing teeth, bridges, dentures, and partial dentures for a return to natural chewing. For those with dentures or with missing teeth, this is the most life-changing service dentistry has to offer. Surgery and prosthetics performed in one convenient location (few offices can do this). Implants can help stop bone loss and facial changes related to missing teeth. They are an alternative to root canals in some cases. Implants reduce chances of further tooth loss over all other treatment options.

3D X-rays for added Safety
Unlike traditional x-rays, the 3D X-ray allows for three-dimensional viewing of jaw bone, jaw joints, and sinuses. All films needed for surgery, joint problems, and routine care can be taken under the same roof without referral to a special facility (very few offices can do this). This allows for safer, more precise surgical planning.
Allows for superior fit, superior cosmetics, and lifelike results for those who require dentures.
