Our Patient Results

Comprehensive Dental Care

As a part of his general dental services, Dr. Hellwig focuses on what he calls "antimicrobial warfare." This phrase describes a wide range of preventive care treatments, including bacterial analysis, antibacterial rinses, and laser therapy. By regulating oral bacteria, Dr. Hellwig can greatly reduce your proclivity for dental decay or gum disease.

For patients who require restorative care, Dr. Hellwig can place and restore multiple types of dental implants depending upon your needs. He works closely with a trusted dental laboratory to fabricate customized, natural-looking dental crowns, bridges, and dentures that can revitalize the function and aesthetics of your smile.

Some patients elect to undergo cosmetic treatments to improve their appearance and increase their confidence, including teeth whitening and FASTBRACES®. Combining artistry, vision, and technical expertise, Dr. Hellwig can help you achieve your ideal smile.
