Ever been curious about what goes on during your dental care visits? Well now, with our intraoral cameras, you don´t have to be curious anymore! An intraoral camera is an indispensable diagnostic & educational tool. The tiny device is a video camera that moves around inside the mouth & generates a tooth-by-tooth video exam of the teeth. With the images produced by the intraoral camera, patients can see each of their teeth & dentists can indicate problems such as broken teeth, plaque, decay, gum disease, defective fillings & so on. Using an intraoral camera allows patients to better understand their dental needs by seeing what the dentist sees & then having it explained.
We know that with your busy schedules, you want to get as much done in one place as possible. We offer in-office digital x-rays for your convenience. Digital x-rays are computer-generated images. These images require up to 90% less radiation than with conventional film type x-rays. Instead of using the traditional silver-oxide x-ray film that must be developed & then fixed in caustic & environmentally damaging solutions, the new system takes pictures via a small electronic sensor & then instantaneously transmits a picture of the tooth onto the video monitor in the treatment room. Therefore, we can see your teeth & surrounding structures immediately. Feel free to contact us for more details, or to make an appointment!
Our doctors have extensive experience in the diagnosis, treatment, management & coordination of dental services to care for our patients & their families. General dentistry includes everything from preventive education & regular visits to fillings, crowns, bridges, & more. Moreover, our doctors provide care for both children & adults, & know how best to care for them. At Howell Dental Excellence, your continued oral health is our top priority.
Root Canal Therapy
A root canal is a small channel inside your tooth that provides it with nutrients. If it becomes injured or infected, you may lose the tooth. At Howell Dental Excellence, we can remedy the problem & restore the damaged tooth, while ensuring that you are as comfortable as possible during the entire procedure. Nowadays, thanks to modern dental advances & technology, root canals are relatively pain-free. Don’t suffer needlessly, call us today for an appointment.

Modern technology combined with the in-depth experience of our clinical team can assure you of a successful & long-lasting result. Whether the cause is accident or disease, we can restore your smile.
Eat, Chew & Smile Naturally Again!
Dental implants are man-made replacements for natural teeth. The implants themselves are artificial tooth roots anchored in the gum or jawbone, on which replacement teeth are permanently secured. Since implanted teeth are fixed in the mouth rather than being removable like dentures, they allow a return to the comfort & function of natural teeth. Increased chewing ability means you can enjoy more nutritious foods, contributing to your overall health & well-being. In short, dental implants improve the quality of your life. They can improve your appearance, boost your self-confidence & allow you to speak with greater clarity.
Crowns cover & support a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t enough tooth left. It can be used to attach a bridge, protect a weak tooth from breaking, or restore one that’s already broken. A crown is a good way to cover teeth that are discolored or badly shaped as well, or to cover a dental implant. A crown can make your tooth stronger & improve its appearance.
Having a great smile can make a huge difference in the way you look & feel. Howell Dental Excellence offers a complete range of cosmetic treatments to create the confident smile you’ve always wanted. We begin with a detailed smile assessment, discussing with you which aspects you like & dislike about your smile. Once our assessment is complete, we will discuss with you treatment options to help your smile look more natural, healthier & youthful.
Braces for All Ages
Having straight teeth is important for both your health & appearance. We perform a thorough assessment of your teeth with an emphasis on early treatment. We place a high priority on finding the best way to correct teeth that are misaligned as well as jaw position problems. We will implement a program with the appropriate appliance to help normalize the growth of jaws & they reduce the need for extractions of teeth. The earlier we begin treatment, the better chance we have for success.
We understand your concerns regarding the use of mercury fillings. Accordingly, at our office we have elected to only use advanced, new fillings made of tooth-colored materials that contain no metals or mercury. It’s just one more way that we show our care for you!
