Dr. Craig Vacek offers a full range of family and general dentistry, as well as cosmetic dentistry services, to enhance your smile, restore oral function, and revitalize your self-confidence. From our preventive services designed to stop disease before it starts, to tooth replacement therapies such as crown and bridgework and dental implants, you’ll find an uncompromising attention to detail coupled with a gentle touch. Our leading-edge practice utilizes state-of-the-art technology, such as CEREC one-visit crowns, to provide you with comfort, as well as convenience.

At the core of our practice is the dental checkup. We love seeing our patients… but not too often. We’d much rather see you every six months for these regularly scheduled visits than many more times in order to care for dental health problems. And that’s why dental checkups are so important—they give us the opportunity to spot and stay one step ahead of trouble if not prevent it all together. Your best oral health is our goal, so we encourage all of our patients to be diligent about scheduling and keeping their checkup appointments. 

At these visits, we’ll clean and floss your teeth, examine your gums, conduct an oral cancer screening and check for signs of TMJ disorder. Both oral cancer and TMJ are treatable conditions when found early. Likewise, if a careful examination and measurement of gum pocket depth reveals that you have gum disease, then we have the treatment that can stop the spread of this bacterial infection, which is the leading cause of tooth loss among American adults.

For our patients who have missing teeth or need to have teeth extracted, Dr. Vacek offers a number of tooth replacement options. A dental implant restores both the root and crown of a tooth, so you have a replacement that looks completely natural and functions as well as a living tooth. In fact, the implant—like the root of a real tooth—encourages your jawbone to renew itself with healthy new bone tissue. Alternatively, a crown and bridge is another way to replace missing teeth and it seamlessly covers the gap in your smile.
