What is Laser Dentistry?

Laser dentistry is an advanced way to treat common dental problems including tooth decay and gummy smiles, and it is also suitable for oral surgery and root canal therapy.

GERD and Its Effect on Your Oral Health

GERD is short for gastroesophageal reflux disease, and although this is a condition affecting your digestive health, it can also negatively impact your teeth and gums because stomach acid flows up the digestive tract and into the mouth.

Waking Up with Headaches? You May Have Bruxism

Have you noticed you frequently wake up with a headache or an aching jaw? You might possibly have a condition called bruxism, where you clench and grind your teeth. What is Bruxism?

Here at Margolian Dentistry, we provide one of the most popular adult braces available today, and it is also highly effective for many common orthodontic problems. Best of all, it is so discreet that most people will remain completely unaware you are receiving treatment. It can be your little secret unless you choose to enlighten them! Why Choose Invisalign?
