• Pediatric Dentistry

    At Ada Family Dentistry we love little smiles too. We see children of all ages. Dr. Schabes feels very strongly that good oral hygiene habits, started early, are the key to a lifelong healthy smile.

    We encourage prevention including a healthy diet, proper brushing and flossing techniques along with minimizing the risk of cavities through the use of sealants and fluoride varnish. We strive to make going to the dentist fun.

  • Sedation Dentistry

    Everything in the dental office goes smoother when patients are relaxed. We realize that for some patients, going to the dentist can cause a certain amount of anxiety. For those individuals, we offer nitrous oxide sedation (laughing gas) which is a safe and effective method to take away your fear. It has the added benefit of wearing off quickly so that you can drive home without any lingering sedation.

    For our more apprehensive patients we can use oral conscious sedation, whereby the individual is prescribed a pill that they take prior to their dental appointment. This medication, which can be used along with nitrous oxide, requires that someone else drives you to and from your appointment but produces a greater degree of sedation than nitrous oxide alone. So breathe deep, relax and leave the dentistry to us.

  • Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Treatment

    The Temporomandibular joint or TMJ is where the jaw connects to the head and is the epicenter of the chewing operation. Patients with TMD (Temporomandibular Dysfunction) may experience:

    • headaches
    • uncomfortable chewing
    • difficulty opening their mouth
    • worn teeth
    • clicking or popping within the joint
    • muscle pain in the head, jaw, or neck

    Proper diagnosis is crucial and treatment can include selective shaping of the teeth or restorations to make the teeth fit together better, physical therapy, and special mouth guards that help muscles relax and put the jaw in a more comfortable position. You need not suffer unnecessarily.

  • Sleep Apnea and Snore Guards

    Do you or your partner suffer from snoring or sleep apnea? We may be able to help. Getting a good night’s sleep may be just a dental visit away. We offer a revolutionary, clinically proven device called the Somnodent® appliance. This removable, easy-to-use appliance repositions the jaw forward to open the airway and can be a terrific alternative for patients with snoring or sleep apnea, especially if they are unable to tolerate CPAP masks and machines.

  • Endodontic (Root Canal) Treatment

    We provide complete root canal therapy at our office. Most often we are able to perform treatment in one easy visit. Dr. Schabes uses the latest in techniques and materials such as nickel titanium rotary files and warm gutta percha filling materials to complete treatment quickly and painlessly. Usually we recommend that a tooth that has been restored with root canal therapy be covered with a protective crown.

  • Oral Surgery (Extractions)

    Extractions and minor oral surgical procedures can be done at our office. Although we will use every measure to prevent tooth loss, there are still some instances where an extraction is the best option. We have many resources available to keep you comfortable before, during, and after the procedure.

  • Emergencies

    Dr. Schabes is very familiar with extractions, endodontic treatment (root canals), and other urgent care situations such as pain, infection, and chipped or broken teeth. Emergencies are usually seen the same day during regular office hours. After hour contact information is always available.

  • Our goal is that, regardless of why you choose our office, we want to develop a lasting and trusting relationship. While some are content with mediocrity, we promise to strive for excellence. We firmly believe that oral health is an integral part of overall health. We want you to look and feel your best.
