At Hagen Dental Practice, We Treat You Like Family
Earning Trust – One Patient at a Time
Our first goal, from the moment you walk in the door, is to earn a feeling of trust. We believe the absolute best dentistry we can provide will only take place when there is a strong bond of trust with our patients, and we’re all working together toward the common goals of healthy teeth and gums and a beautiful smile.
Dentistry For Adults
Whether your dental needs are a complete exam, cleaning, or anything in between, our staff will provide you with exceptional care. Your six-month visits keep your teeth clean and healthy and help prevent problems down the road by letting us spot them early. We can address your unique concerns and develop a relationship that ensures continuity of care. We look forward to meeting you!
A Healthy Smile, A Healthy Body
Did you know that the cause of most tooth loss is not decay? It’s gum disease. And recent studies have established a link between gum disease and your overall health. The good news is that gum disease can be treated successfully, often without surgery. Our commitment to you includes paying meticulous attention to all of your needs for healthy teeth and gums so you not only look your best but also have optimum overall health.
Introducing Laser Dentistry
Our practice uses laser technology for the non-surgical treatment of gum disease, with results that might have been considered miraculous not too many years ago. The procedure is minimal and patient friendly, and the results have been overwhelmingly positive. We have successfully treated many cases of periodontal (gum) disease without the need for gum surgery. We use an advanced dental laser to ensure your treatment is virtually painless. This laser is safe and effective, and is FDA approved. This breakthrough process actually can regenerate bone lost through years of gum disease.
Crooked teeth, worn teeth, fillings, gaps, chips, cracks, and discolorations – you name it, we can fix it! It’s no secret that our smiles have a huge effect on how others see us and how we feel about ourselves. Many patients tell us that they would love to fix their teeth, but they assume it will take something extreme to make it possible. They are thrilled to find out there are many conservative options for improvement. Ask us about veneers, bonding, crowns, and more. We also offer GLO™ Whitening for a dazzlingly white smile!
We are pleased to offer crowns made with CEREC™, a highly precise computer milling machine that makes crowns right in the office, in about an hour. No more temporaries, additional visits, or crowns that don’t seem to fit right. These modern restorations dramatically reduce cracking, lowering the likelihood of needing future root canal treatment. Due to the custom design and precise fit, CEREC restorations are bonded to the tooth with the optimum strength available. If you have ever had a crown placed the traditional way, we are sure you will notice the difference!
Straight Teeth with Clear Aligners
With Invisalign™ it is possible to have straight teeth in as little as 9 – 15 months! No braces, wires, or headgear! And the best part is that no one will know you’re straightening your teeth – because it’s invisible! The Invisalign system is easily removable and allows you to eat and drink what you want while in treatment, and brushing and flossing are no problem!
Goodbye Goopy Impressions
With our new intra-oral scanner, Dr. Hagen is able to make accurate digital impressions that usually eliminate the old uncomfortable tray and putty impression. It can be used for crowns, Invisalign clear aligners, whitening trays, and more. This technology ensures a more precise fit and improved accuracy, and you’ll spend less time at the dentist and more time enjoying your new smile.
Oral health can have a far bigger impact on a person’s life than regular cleanings and the occasional filling can address. Many patients who’ve dealt with injury, illness, bite problems, and simple wear and tear can have chronic problems such as tooth grinding, TMJ, periodontitis, crooked or misshapen teeth, and missing teeth. The result can be headaches and migraines, toothaches, chronic bad breath, and an unattractive appearance. But you don’t have to live like that. Dr. Hagen will present options for a treatment plan to address your issues and achieve a healthy, pain-free, beautiful smile.
The Cleanest Your Teeth Can Be
We use a Piezo Scaler™ to aid in removing deposits of plaque and calculus (tartar) from your teeth, especially under the gumline and even in deep pockets, in the case of gum disease treatments. This hand tool uses high-frequency vibrations to enable us to remove deposits on your teeth faster than with regular scaling instruments. Your teeth have never felt so clean! As a bonus, most patients report less discomfort with the Piezo Scaler.
Oral Cancer – Minimize Your Risk
It’s an often unknown statistic that oral cancer causes one American death every hour. For 40 years, this mortality rate hasn’t changed. But it’s not all bad news. Early detection means a 90% cure rate for oral cancer. That’s why we conduct a visual screening for oral cancer at every six-month checkup and cleaning. If the hygienist or doctor sees anything that gives them cause for concern, they’ll refer you to an oral surgeon. This screening could literally save your life!
Beautiful Dentures for Confident Smiles
If you’re looking for affordable dentures for missing teeth, Dr. Hagen can design and fit beautiful-looking dentures that don’t slip! He is skilled at fitting the denture so well that you don’t have to worry about the foods you’re eating or that your dentures might shift when you talk.
The dentist works hand-in-hand with patients to create a bond of teamwork. The amazing intra-oral camera is a miniature video camera that displays a closeup picture of the inside of your mouth. You can see for yourself what work needs to be done and which teeth are doing fine. You then become a participant in each dental decision. You’ll love how this works!
Traditional dental X-rays have been “good enough,” but digital X-rays provide clearer and much more accurate pictures of what’s going on inside a patient’s mouth. This makes it easier for the doctor to diagnose issues. Leaks or breaks in fillings that used to go unnoticed, often leading to root canals, can now be found and treated before major damage is done. We can also view your entire mouth in one shot, including the upper and lower jaws, with panoramic digital images.
