Every new patient receives a thorough examination and a precise assessment of his or her oral health. Dr. Hackman will discuss your needs, answer your questions, advise you of options, and make his recommendations for treatment.

We can perform even the most difficult cleanings thoroughly and comfortably using ultrasonic instruments. This gentle vibration, called cavitation, removes heavy deposits allowing us to reduce the need for scraping. You'll enjoy the nurturing care of regular professional cleanings. They enhance the health of your teeth and gums, and you'll feel better with your mouth and breath as fresh as they can be.

Do you wish you could start over? Dental implants are like a second chance at having natural teeth. These durable tooth replacements allow you to close the gaps from missing teeth, or anchor custom-fit dentures and partials for unsurpassed stability and comfort. Our Periodontist and Implant Surgeon, is a specialist in this restorative option, providing you with the fine craftsmanship and attention to detail that each of our patients have come to trust.
This form of orthodontics allows you to wear clear plastic aligners on your teeth and move them just as if you had braces. Although there are limitations, INVISALIGN is quickly gaining popularity with those that want an alternative to having braces bonded on to their teeth. These clear aligners are worn throughout the day and are changed every two weeks. In a short time, you can have the straight beautiful smile you have been waiting for.
There are times when the only way to save a tooth is by performing a root canal procedure....think of it as a deeper filling. In most cases, a root canal is necessary because of three reasons. (1) There is deep decay in the tooth (2) there has been trauma to the tooth and/or there is an infection , or (3) the tooth has become sensitive to hot and/or cold due to various reasons. A root canal is almost always followed by a rebuilding of the tooth and a crown restoration to return the tooth to function.
Crowns and Bridges
There are many techniques and materials for fabricating crowns and bridges. Their beauty and longevity depend upon choosing the best techniques and using the finest craftsmanship. Dr. Hackman is up-to-date on all the latest materials and techniques and can recommend the particular type that will best suit your needs for strength, health, and incredibly natural-looking results.
Dentures and Partials
Dr. Hackman's goal is to make beautiful reconstructions and comfortable-fitting dentures and partials. In the case of any denture or partial, you will always have the opportunity to give your input on the the look of your selected teeth by viewing them before finalizing the work. Always keep in mind...these days both dentures and partials can be supported with implants or precision attachments. Implants can be used for stability as your denture snaps onto them for support.
Cosmetic Partial Dentures
In the past, partial dentures that replaced multiple teeth required metal on the facial surfaces of teeth...easily noticed metal that most of us would not like. Today, you have a second option, in the form of a flexible acrylic called Valplast. In most cases, Valplast allows us to have the metal substructure only on the inside of the partial denture, where it can not be seen. The flexible acrylic allows us to get retion around your teeth without any metal showing.
