Dr. Cavanaugh is a practitioner of the Kois Centers approach to dentistry. He completed his postgraduate training at the Kois Center, which teaches its students to conduct a thorough evaluation of all aspects of your teeth, gums, and jaw joints. The Kois Center also encourages more comprehensive care for dental patients as well as patient education, enabling patients to take a proactive role in their own care.

Cosmetic Dental Services
Ready for a smile makeover? We offer cosmetic dental services that can whiten, straighten and enhance the appearance of your smile. Dr. Cavanaugh will work with you on an individual basis to ensure that your cosmetic dentistry is also supporting the health and stability of your smile.
Invisalign: Invisalign is a discreet way to get straighter teeth over time. Crafted from removable clear plastic, Invisalign braces allow patients to eat a normal diet and brush and floss normally.
Porcelain Veneers: Dental veneers are thin ceramic shells that attach to the front and sides of the tooth. Our office uses porcelain veneers because they reflect light for a more natural-looking end-result.
Teeth Bonding: Dental bonding is used to cover cosmetic imperfections. This alternative to permanent treatments like veneers is more affordable and doesn’t require lengthy tooth preparation.
Teeth Whitening: Professional-grade teeth whitening treatment erases stains from your teeth safely and conveniently in the comfort of your own home.
General Dental Treatments
General dentistry is the foundation of our practice and the maintenance of your smile from year to year. Regular visits, dental exams and cleanings will help you to avoid dental problems and emergencies that can result in the need for extensive dental work to resolve.
Custom Mouthguard: Dr. Cavanaugh can help create a custom mouthguard for contact sports. When mouthguards fit properly, they prevent chipped, damaged, and knocked out teeth.
Emergency Dentistry: Call our office for emergency dental treatment. If your emergency is happening during business hours, call our office to discuss your concerns and schedule an appointment.
Family Dentistry: Dr. Cavanaugh and his professional dental team offer dental treatments for patients of all ages. Geriatric solutions and pediatric treatments ensure that our office is able to address all types of dental concerns.
Sedation Dentistry: Nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, is a sedation solution for patients with dental fear or anxiety. Nitrous oxide relaxes patients for calmer and more comfortable dental treatment.
Tooth Extraction: Patients may fear the tooth extraction procedure due to pain, however, we use anesthetic. Tooth extraction is often needed for patients with severely overcrowded, crooked, and decayed teeth.
Restorative Dental Solutions
Dr. Cavanaugh can restore damaged and missing teeth with the latest dental treatments. We help patients with chipped, cracked, broken or missing teeth get back to smiling comfortably again.
Dental bridge: Dental bridges replace missing teeth and support any remaining tooth structure, allowing patients to bite and chew evenly again. They can be removable, fixed, or secured with dental implants.
Dental Crown: Cover dental implants or damaged teeth with a dental crown. We will take digital dental impressions of your mouth to generate a custom fitting crown.
Dental Implants: Dental implants can replace one or more teeth for a stable restoration. They can also be used in dental bridges or dentures.
Dentures and Partials: Full and partial dentures replace multiple missing teeth and improve the function of one’s bite, support bone retention, and help to prevent gum recession.
Periodontal Disease Treatment: Gum disease, also known as periodontitis, can begin as gum inflammation and result in loose teeth and decay. We remove gum infection and provide a deep clean for patients.
TMJ Treatment: If you find yourself waking up with a sore jaw, you may have TMJ. Dr. Cavanaugh can give you a mouthguard to protect teeth from further damage and helps realign the jaw.
