Cosmetic Care

Invisalign & ClearCorrect

Both Invisalign and ClearCorrect offer a virtually invisible way to orthodontically straighten and realign your teeth. Treatment consists of a series of clear aligners that you progress through over the course of time to reposition your teeth to their desired alignment. The clear aligners can simply be removed by you before you brush, floss, eat, drink or have a special occasion. Our patients find the trays very comfortable and easy to maintain for the short two weeks you are in each set of trays.

How to get started? Treatment starts with upper and lower scans and clinical photos to document your current arrangement of teeth. This information is then forwarded on to the lab where orthodontists and lab technicians collaborate on your case. After just a few days, a digital representation of your treatment is sent back to us. We will then sit down together and watch the animation of your current smile transformed into an ideal one. Our patients absolutely love this feature! You can see the final positioning of your smile before you even agree to starting treatment!

Porcelain Veneers

A porcelain dental veneer differs from a porcelain dental crown in that a veneer is only about .3mm-1mm thick. The veneer is only bonded to the lip or cheek side of the tooth to mask unsightly colors in a tooth, recontour its shape or to permanently change the color of the tooth.

To begin, schedule a consultation with Dr. Moos. He encourages patients to bring photos of themselves or other photos of what they are looking for in their new smile. Dr. Moos will then take diagnostic impressions/scans of your teeth. These are used to make mock-ups which allow for critiquing so Dr. Moos can get your teeth looking exactly how you would like them to appear. Your teeth are then minimally prepped and a final impression/scan is taken and delivered to the lab to have your porcelain veneers fabricated. Once fabricated, we bring you back for the cementation appointment. When treatment is completed, Dr. Moos highly recommends a Night Guard to prevent any damage from nighttime grinding to your new porcelain veneers.

Teeth Whitening

Safe, effective, and now with growing popularity, everyone can have a great looking smile! We offer a whitening product to meet every budget and time frame!

• Over the Counter: Opalescence GO Whitening (15%)
• Custom Trays: Personal Whitening Trays + Opalescence Whitening (35%)

Botox & Xeomin

Dr. Moos now offers cosmetic dermal Botox and Xeomin injections! Repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting or raising eyebrows cause skin to furrow and fold, gradually resulting in the formation of facial lines. Both Botox and Xeomin work beneath the surface and temporarily reduce the underlying muscle activity that causes moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines in adults – to help them look visibly smoother! Save time at appointments and combine injections with your next cleaning!

Restorative Care

Crowns & Bridges

Protecting damaged teeth and restoring functionality; Dental crowns restore badly damaged teeth due to fracture, cracks and/or decay. Teeth that have had a root canal performed on them will also be a candidate for a dental crown. Crowns restore a damaged tooth by encasing it in a strong, protective material such as gold, porcelain or zirconia. Our crowns are fabricated in a state-of-the-art lab that allow them to be perfectly designed to fit with the neighboring and opposing teeth.

The Procedure: We begin with a diagnostic scan which is electronically sent to the lab creating the crown. A cast is completed to form the temporary crown that will be worn while the crown is fabricated. The tooth is then reduced about 1-1.5mm on all exposed surfaces. Once the tooth is reduced, a final scan is completed. A shade match, clinical photo and instruction for optimal crown aesthetic will also be included and sent. At a short follow-up appointment (10 business days later), the temporary crown is removed and the final crown is permanently cemented into place.

The process is the exact same for a bridge preparation, most commonly spanning three teeth including a missing middle tooth. The two exterior teeth are prepped as described above and a pontic (artificial) crown is created to span the gap. The bridge is constructed as a single prosthetic.

Complete (Full) & Partial Dentures

A denture is a removable prosthetic for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. Two types of dentures are available; complete (full) and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. To prepare for complete or partial dentures, a patient may require extractions and time to heal from said extractions. Delivery of complete and partial dentures may require a series of appointments that include diagnostic scans/impressions, bite registrations and wax try-ins. All these steps are necessary to ensure a properly fitted prosthetic.

Composite Restorations

Dental composite resin restorations are more commonly called “tooth-colored fillings". These are a GREAT alternative to amalgam (metal) fillings. What are the advantages to a composite resin filling?

They repair a broken or decayed tooth. Composite resin material has taken great leaps and bounds in recent years. It is designed to be strong enough to withstand everyday use while creating a beautiful aesthetic.The bond between a composite filling and the natural tooth supports the natural tooth and helps prevent future fractures. Composite fillings are more conservative of natural tooth structure by allowing the dentist to only remove the part of the tooth that is broken or decayed. Composite fillings can also be used to replace unsightly amalgam (metal) fillings if patients are looking rid themselves of "metal mouth."

Dental Implants

A dental implant is a small titanium surgical screw that acts as the root of a tooth. It is used to support a dental crown to restore an area in the mouth where a tooth has been lost or was missing. Why should a missing tooth be replaced?

Outside of simply making you feel self conscious about your smile, missing teeth can actually create functional problems. Neighboring teeth rely on adjacent and opposing teeth to hold them in place. When a tooth is missing for some time, the neighboring teeth will tend to drift. If enough of this drifting occurs, it can affect how your teeth come together, decreasing chewing efficiency and creating unnatural wear patterns on the rest of your teeth. Additionally, when the jaw bone no longer has a tooth to support it the bone shrinks, decreasing support in that area and the adjacent teeth. This change in bone structure can affect your facial appearance depending on which teeth are missing.
Implant Placement: Dr. Moos begins with local anesthetic to numb the site where the implant will be placed. The tissue is then parted to the side by means of a small incision. A small pilot hole is then placed in the bone to guide in widening the implant site for placement. Once the bone is sized accordingly, the implant is placed in the bone. A healing cap is placed on the implant to protect it and the tissue is then sutured back into place.

Restoring the Implant: After enough time has passed for the bone to integrate and heal properly around the implant, it's time to move forward with the restorative phase of treatment. This consists of a final diagnostic impression and a follow-up appointment to cement or "screw" the crown to the implant.

Emergency Care

Limited Exam

Your teeth don’t always operate on a set schedule and if you are traveling, on-the-go or just don’t have an established dentist you see regularly, you can find yourself in a sticky situation when a problem arises. Good news! We are here for you! Call our office and we will do our very best to be sure you are seen that day by Dr. Moos. Most limited exams will consist of a problem focused oral exam, necessary x-rays and a treatment plan to get you to a place of ease and comfort. If you are in pain, it can't wait. Call us today!

Bone Grafting

If you plan to restore an area in your mouth with a dental implant, once the tooth has been removed, Dr. Moos highly recommends that the area be bone grafted to ensure proper healing and a stable site for implant placement. In fact, it is estimated that half of implant placement procedures require bone grafts. This is a very simple process taking just a few minutes to accomplish once the tooth has been removed. The socket is cleaned and small allograft particles are packed into the socket. A small bandage is sutured over the top of the bone particles to hold them in place as healing occurs.

Root Canal Therapy

Root Canal therapy is a procedure done to treat a tooth with an inflamed or infected pulp. A tooth can experience an inflamed or infected pulp from deep decay, fracture, faulty restorations or trauma. In order to save the tooth and promote health in the area, a root canal is performed to remove the pulp. This is done by accessing the pulp chamber in the center of the tooth and using small instruments to extract the pulp. The tooth is then internally shaped and cleaned to disinfect any remaining tissue, bacteria or infection present. The tooth is sealed by filling the empty chamber with a rubber-like material. Once completed, a dental crown or permanent filling is placed over the access point to ensure proper protection of the tooth structure. This is a highly successful procedure for restoring a tooth that is experiencing a troubled nerve or current infection. Dr. Moos performs most root canals on anterior (front) teeth to first molars. Posterior (back) molar root canals are referred out to a specialist called an Endodontist.

Tooth Extraction

Sometimes the best treatment for a tooth and your body as a whole is to have it removed. The overall goal is to always try to keep the teeth you have, but a poor prognosis can make an extraction the best possible outcome. It's not easy to part with your teeth, but Dr. Moos will explain the extraction process in detail and the restorative options for the area moving forward.

Preventative Care

Bad Breath

Halitosis, or bad breath, can be embarrassing, but the good news is there are numerous ways to prevent it! Following these tips can make a huge difference when it comes to your oral health. Make sure to brush 2x per day, floss daily, don't forget to brush/scrape your tongue, use a mouth rinse, make sure to keep up on cleanings every 3-6 months (depending on your hygienist's recommendation), put down those tobacco products and stay hydrated! If these tips aren't cutting it, call for a consultation with Dr. Moos today!

Brushing & Flossing

The recommended rules still haven't changed! To maintain oral health, brush 2x per day and floss daily. Make sure to replace your toothbrush/toothbrush head when bristles become worn (about every 2 months). Moos Family Dental recommends using a toothpaste containing fluoride. Flossing removes plaque and food from in between your teeth, so don't skip this step! This is one of the most common places to get cavities, brushing alone just won't cut it. And don't forget to brush your tongue!

Comprehensive Exams

For our first-time patients (both adult and children), the comprehensive exam is a necessary starting point to get everyone on the same page. We generally take the annual digital x-rays and any additional x-rays needed to fully diagnose your oral health standing. From this point, Dr. Moos creates a treatment plan that outlines any future procedures necessary to get you back to excellent oral health. Moos Family Dental wants you to leave your first appointment feeling well informed and satisfied!


Sometimes you need more than one opinion when evaluating the best way to go about a procedure. We understand and have been there ourselves. We are happy to see new or established patients for a consultation appointment to answer questions about anything that is concerning you.

Gum (Periodontal) Disease

Unhealthy gums can lead to other issues such as heart attacks, stroke, diabetes, pregnancy complications, not to mention the number one reason for tooth loss in adults! Gum disease starts with minor symptoms such as bleeding or swollen, inflamed tissue. It can then advance to the point where it becomes very painful if it goes untreated. Seeing your hygienist for regular cleanings is a great way to prevent gum disease from occurring.

Mouth Guards

It has been reported that 40% of sports injuries are to the athletes face. Mouthguards help protect your teeth, lips, tongue and gums.The benefits of a custom fit mouthguard is that it is going to perfectly fit each individual athlete providing the most protection available. They are bulky enough to protect but thin enough to be very comfortable.

Night Guards

Many people have a destructive habit of clenching or grinding their teeth at night. This habit can be something that goes unnoticed by many patients but is fairly easy to diagnose with a dental exam from Dr. Moos. If you have woken up in the morning to a sore jaw, headaches or chipped teeth you most likely are clenching and grinding your teeth at night. A Night Guard is a very simple comfortable night time appliance that helps protect your teeth. It is a piece of hard acrylic molded to custom fit your teeth. We have a number of patients in this appliance and all of them have great success with relieving symptoms caused by clenching and grinding, not to mention protecting their teeth from any future wear.

Oral Cancer

Oral cancer has many appearances to it but things you can look for yourself are color changes of tissues, abnormal swellings or sores, sores that bleed and never heal, lumps, bumps, rough patches, painful areas or numb areas. Some of the most common areas to look are the lower lip and sides of the tongue. If you notice something that seems out of place give Dr. Moos a call and schedule an exam to have him take a look.

Snoring & Sleep Apnea

Do you constantly feel like you are tired day in and day out? Have you ever been told you snore? There’s a good chance that you have some degree of sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a very common sleep disorder. This constant routine of starving the brain of oxygen deprives the body of good quality sleep. Here at Moos Family Dental we want to help you achieve whole body wellness, not just great oral health. We have an array of appliances to fit every degree of snoring and sleep apnea.
