Restorative Dentistry
Teeth aren’t indestructible, and they can be damaged from impact, bad oral habits, and the past, or simply wear and tear over time. Restorative dentistry can help your mouth function as it should. Dentures, implants, bridges, and bone grafts can help restore your smile to its former functionality.

Periodontal Therapy
Periodontal disease occurs when plaque is able to build up in gaps between your teeth and gums and infect the surrounding tissue. If left untreated, it can cause the bone holding your teeth in place to deteriorate so significantly that your teeth start to loosen and fall out. We provide laser periodontal therapy to help remove infected gum tissue and plaque buildup. If we need to restore your smile, we offer several effective treatments as mentioned above.

Testimonials from patients of your Dickson, TN Dentist

I cannot believe the customer service I received at my first appointment today! I have never been to a dentist's office like it! My best friend referred me and I should have made my appointment sooner. They were prompt, friendly, efficient, and helped me create a treatment plan I wanted for my mouth! So so so happy! - Megan

I felt like they really valued me as a person- my time, my level of comfort, and my concerns. I put off going to the dentist for a very long time and Dr. Gatgens and his staff took excellent care of me and tried to work with my budget in mind. Worth the drive from Nashville. - Alan

The most phenomenal staff! All the ladies up front are the sweetest and so helpful! I went in for just one procedure, but I’ll definitely be making this my family dentist. They have the most innovative technology and make everything super quick and easy.

Also, they have this special vibrating tool used for numbing that vibrates while injecting the serum and you can’t even feel it. Definitely eases your mind if you have anxiety about going to the dentist as I do! 10/10 recommend! - Kaci
