Tooth loss and the resulting bone and tissue loss can cause great discomfort, and can negatively impact his or her ability to properly and painlessly chew food.

Crown lengthening is often used to aid in the placement of bridges or crowns. Much like dental implants, crowns and bridges require a sufficient amount of solid bone in order to be securely placed. Circumstances in which decay is exposed or a tooth is broken off at the gum line require exposure of the bone below in order to provide enough foundation for a bridge or crown. Learn More
Esthetic Periodontal Procedures
Periodontists are able to enhance a patient's’ teeth and gums for esthetic purposes as well as medical necessity. In fact, periodontists are often considered the “regenerative surgeons” of dentistry, and can improve your smile safely and with precision. Learn More
Our teeth emerge from our gums naturally at certain stages of our young lives, often between the ages of six months and two years. The process of breaking through the gum tissue and becoming visible is called “eruption.” These “baby teeth” are the primary teeth found in the mouth until the eruption of permanent teeth begins, usually around age six.

Dr. McVaney and the team at Specialty Dental Care have years of experience with the varying levels of dental sedation. The comfort and safety of our patients is our top priority.

X-rays allow periodontists and dentists to discover hidden conditions at a very early stage. Some of these conditions include gum disease, tooth decay, and even abnormal growths. When caught early, these issues are easier and less costly to treat than their more advanced stages.
Ongoing care is customized post treatment care we offer our patients on an individual basis. We have short term plans, long term plans or determined on a per basis visit. Each maintenance appointment is no longer than one hour and gives us an opportunity to monitor your oral health.
Ongoing care is necessary for someone who has gum disease/periodontal disease because while it can be treated, it never goes away. By examining your gums, we can ensure that we can keep it under control and continue healthy oral habits.
For dental implants, it’s necessary for us to see how your implant integrates in your mouth and if the tissue forms around the implant. By doing so, it helps prevent food from getting into the crown area (thus infecting the area around your implant).
If you need to schedule ongoing care, please call our office at (402) 334-8083 to make an appointment.
We’re capable of providing any service: extractions, root canal prep, and temporary fillings. We can do x-rays and other diagnostics to determine the condition of your oral emergency. From there, we can determine if an implant is necessary, saving the crown is viable, or worst case- if an extraction needs to occur. (Although we try to avoid that if at all possible)
We are available for 24 hour for current patients, however, we won’t see new patients for emergencies outside of our normal office hours. Not because we’re playing favorites, but we simply won’t know enough about your oral health to treat your emergency.
