    Oral Hygiene Best Practices

    You can practice good oral hygiene by always brushing your teeth twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste, cleaning between your teeth once a day with floss or another interdental cleaner, replacing your toothbrush every three or four months, and eating a balanced diet. Don’t forget to schedule regular dental check-ups to keep your smile, and yourself, healthy. With regular dental care, your dentist can help prevent oral problems from occurring in the first place and catch those that do occur in the early stages, while they are easy to treat.


    A crown, sometimes known as a dental cap, is a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant. Ely Family Dental can provide same-day permanent crowns using state of the art in-house crown milling technology.


    A bridge is a fixed dental restoration (a fixed dental prosthesis) used to replace one or more missing teeth by joining an artificial tooth to adjacent teeth or dental implants, thus creating a dental bridge over the location of a vacant tooth.

    Dental Anxiety

    Let our team at Ely Family Dental know if you experience dental anxiety. We will be better able to treat you if we know your needs. There are various strategies for addressing dental anxiety; let’s explore them together.


    Dentures are removable appliances that can replace missing teeth and help restore your smile. There are many types of dentures: conventional, immediate, partials, and more. If you’ve lost all your natural teeth, whether from gum disease, tooth decay, or injury, dentures make it easier to eat and speak than you could without teeth.

    Emergency Dentistry

    Emergency dentistry is dentistry responding to any trauma to the mouth that may cause bleeding and lacerations to the gums, and dislodge or fracture teeth, and may require immediate medical attention. Consult the link below to access some American Dental Association tips for common dental emergencies.


    Dental extractions may be called for if there is too much damage or decay for a tooth to be repaired. There are two kinds of extractions: simple and surgical. Simple extractions are common. They are performed on teeth that can be seen in the mouth. The dentist first loosens the tooth, then removes it. A surgical extraction is performed on a tooth that may have broken at the gumline and may require bone removal to remove the tooth.


    A filling, or dental restoration, is a treatment to restore the function, integrity, and structural features resulting from decay (cavities) or external trauma. Ely Family Dental offers restorations with either tooth-colored composite resins, or silver-colored amalgam fillings.


    Dental implants are an effective way to replace missing teeth. They are posts that are surgically placed in the jaw where they function as an anchor for replacement teeth. Implants are made of titanium and other materials that are compatible with the human body.


    Many of our patients receive a type of hygiene service called perio maintenance. Periodontics is the dental specialty in the inflammatory disease that destroys the gums and other supporting structures around the teeth.

    Root Canals

    Root canals are used to repair and save a tooth from severe infection, damage, or decay. The pulp is the soft tissue inside your tooth that contains nerves, blood vessels, and provides nourishment for your tooth. It can become infected if you have a deep cavity, a cracked or fractured tooth, or other injury to the tooth.

    Sleep Apnea Devices

    Sleep apnea is a common but serious sleep disorder that occurs when regular breathing is interrupted during sleep. Obstructive sleep apnea is the more common form; it is the result of blocked airflow when the soft tissue at the back of the throat collapses during sleep. Certain oral devices can shift and support the jaw to prevent the airway from collapsing. Research shows that oral appliances can successfully prevent sleep apnea in some mild to moderate cases.


    Depending on the circumstances we can treat temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ) with custom oral appliances or Botox.


    A veneer is a layer of material placed over a tooth, veneers improve the aesthetics of a smile and/or protect the tooth’s surface from damage.


    Botox is the first and only FDA-approved treatment to temporarily smooth moderate to severe forehead lines, crow’s feet lines, and frown lines in adults. Dr. Chopp is an aesthetic specialist who can perform treatment in half-hour appointments. If you’d like to learn more, consider inquiring about Botox Parties. Botox is also used medically for Blepharospasms (eye spasms), TMJ issues, and migraines.

    Juvederm Fillers

    The Juvederm collection of fillers offers natural looking, long lasting results in softening lines around the nose and mouth, as well as adding subtle volume to the cheeks and lips.


    Kybella is a prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat). Kybella is individually tailored, injectable, and permanently destroys fat cells in the treatment area.

    VI Peels

    VI Peels are formulated to rejuvenate aging skin and help prevent future skin damage. They are shown to soften lines and wrinkles, restore a more even skin tone, and smooth away rough skin texture.
