Comprehensive Dental Care
Dr. Holleman takes a comprehensive approach to dental care, which means she not only diagnoses and treats conditions affecting the teeth, gums, and jaw, but also emphasizes quality preventive care to reduce the risk of those conditions recurring. She aims to catch problems while they are still small so she can utilize the most conservative treatment plans possible.
We also work hard every day to help all of our patients — regardless of age — feel comfortable and confident in our care. Each patient who walks through our door will receive age-appropriate treatment that is tailored to their needs. From routine cleanings, to fluoride treatments, to teeth whitening, to dentures and dental implants, there's something for everyone at Lynn Lane Family Dentistry!
Family & Cosmetic Dentistry
If the thought of going to the dentist makes your stomach turn, we understand! Many people experience dental anxiety, and we encourage you to share your concerns with us. Our goal is to provide compassionate care in a comfortable and relaxing environment.
We offer nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, to help patients feel at ease. This safe and easy dental sedation option helps many patients who experience dental anxiety get comfortable. The effects are completely reversible by breathing pure oxygen, so you can get back to your daily activities immediately after your visit.
Oral Conscious Sedation
We also offer oral conscious sedation to those who experience moderate to severe anxiety. It involves taking a carefully-prescribed sedative prior to your visit. With just one pill, you’ll feel significantly calm and relaxed while in our care.
When talking with you about sedation dentistry, we will review your health history, including medications you are taking and habits such as alcohol consumption and smoking. We take all factors into careful consideration when planning treatment, and we'll go through the proper preparation steps with you prior to your dental sedation visit. Your comfort and safety is our top priority!
Our practice also has many amenities to make your dental experiences enjoyable, including TVs in our treatment rooms, complimentary beverages, neck pillows, blankets, and warm scented towels. Your comfort is our top priority!
Positive dental experiences during childhood can encourage a lifetime of healthy smiles. We understand that many kids feel nervous about their dental visits, and our gentle-mannered team will help your children feel more comfortable while visiting us.
As a mom of two little ones, Dr. Holleman understands that children have unique needs when it comes to treatment and communication. She thoroughly explains every procedure in kid-friendly terms and moves at a pace that keeps your child feeling comfortable. Call to schedule your child’s appointment!
Cleanings & Exams
Maintaining six-month cleanings and exams help ensure you have healthy gums, clean teeth, and a confident smile. These visits allow us to track the progress of your oral heath and catch any issues before they become painful and expensive.
Composite (Tooth-Colored) Fillings
A composite filling is used to repair minor dental flaws, including cracks, decay, and fractures. These fillings are closely matched to the natural color of your teeth so that you can enjoy a healthy, beautiful smile once again.
Crowns & Bridges
Crowns are used to restore imperfect, damaged, or root canal-treated teeth as well as to replace missing teeth. Bridges are also used to replace missing teeth. Both crowns and bridges can be created out of a tooth-colored, porcelain material to restore the aesthetics and function of your smile. When in place, your crown or bridge will be a natural addition to your smile.
Missing teeth can take the joy out of the everyday things you love, from eating your favorite foods to laughing and smiling with confidence. Dental implants are the preferred method of permanently replacing missing teeth, and they’re also one of the most effective ways to stabilize loose or ill-fitting dentures.
Dr. Holleman completed extensive training in both the surgical placement and the cosmetic restoration of dental implants and mini-implants, so you can receive all your treatment here at Lynn Lane Family Dentistry.
- Dental implants aren’t just for seniors. You can replace your missing teeth at any age.
- Implants look and function like your natural teeth so you brush, floss, and care for them the same way.
- Healthy dental implants can last a lifetime!
We can help determine the best of several options for denture wearers. Complete dentures or full dentures are worn by patients who are missing all teeth of an arch (upper and/or lower). Removable partial dentures act as a replacement for missing teeth. Partial dentures are similar to complete dentures, but they fit around your remaining natural teeth. Dentures can also be supported by dental implants to provide additional stability and strength. We work hard to make sure dentures look natural and feel comfortable.
Our office is equipped with digital radiography, which will capture and save accurate digital images of your teeth and mouth instantly. Digital X-rays are much faster and safer for our patients than traditional X-rays, emitting up to 90% less radiation.
Digital Panoramic X-rays
Digital Panoramic X-rays show a broad view of the jaws, teeth, sinuses, nasal area, and temporomandibular (jaw) joints. These X-rays do not find cavities. These X-rays do show problems such as impacted teeth, bone abnormalities, cysts, solid growths (tumors), infections, and fractures.
Digital photography with our intraoral cameras is a useful, diagnostic and patient education tool. Through the use of the camera, we can show you digital pictures of your teeth and gums. These pictures not only enable us to identify problem areas like a cracked tooth or a broken filling, but we can visually guide you through your diagnosis and treatment options. The intraoral camera provides you with the unique opportunity to be an active part of your treatment plan!
If we can help you save your natural tooth for a healthy and attractive result, we will — each and every time. We practice conservative care, always with your best interests in mind. Sometimes conditions in your mouth, ranging from infection and pain to very advanced tooth decay, make tooth extraction (tooth removal) the best option. If this is the case, we are going to do everything we can to make your visit as comfortable and pleasant as possible, in addition to being effective.
We provide periodontal (gum) therapy for patients who need a little extra care to achieve and maintain healthy gums and clean teeth. Periodontal disease is an infection that affects the gums and bone around one tooth or many teeth. If left untreated, gum disease can lead to tooth loss. It has also been linked to other serious health problems, including heart disease, diabetes, respiratory disease, and stroke. If you have any degree of periodontal disease, we want to help. Your oral health is important to us.
Invisalign Aligner Therapy
Are you ready to show off a beautiful, confident smile but not interested in spending years in metal braces? With Invisalign aligner therapy, you can get the straight teeth you’ve always wanted without the bars and brackets used with traditional braces. Invisalign uses a series of clear, custom-made aligners to gradually reposition your teeth to their ideal position. Aligners are comfortable for the sensitive tissues of your gums and cheeks, and they can be easily removed to eat, brush, and floss.
Big meeting on the calendar? Getting ready for your wedding? No problem! The aligners can be removed for short periods of time without affecting your treatment.
Can you imagine what it would be like to have a smile with straight, beautifully shaped, and dazzling white teeth? This is possible with porcelain veneers! Veneers are thin, tooth-colored coverings custom-made in a dental laboratory that are bonded to the front of your teeth. Veneers are often used to perfect your smile by fixing minor flaws and unevenness, as well as discolorations that cannot be solved with teeth whitening alone.
Root Canal Therapy (Endodontics)
The inside of each tooth contains soft tissue and nerves running from the root to the crown. A crack, deep cavity, or other injury to a tooth can cause the nerve to become damaged and infected. Without treatment, patients can experience pain, swelling and abscesses, tooth loss, and eventually damage to the surrounding bone. With endodontic treatment, also called root canal therapy, we carefully remove damaged tissue and nerves from the tooth, then gently clean and seal the root canal to protect it from bacteria.
One of the subtle, yet very noticeable ways you can take years off the appearance of your smile is through teeth whitening. LOVE YOUR SMILE! Our office offers the Kor Whitening Deep Bleaching System, which has been ranked the highest as the most effective, reliable way to whiten your teeth permanently. We will consult with you about your clinical needs and hopes for your smile to help you obtain the "WOW" results you're looking for!
