Dr. James D. Schuette is a general dentist providing dentistry for the entire family of all ages. We offer nitrous oxide to help you relax for a dental visit that is as comfortable for you as possible.

We also offer state-of-the-art laser enhanced treatments so that we can provide more efficient, comfortable care. Laser dentistry can do many things for your smile, including helping you grow new bone, grow new connective tissue, and grow new gum tissue without the use of a scalpel or sutures. Laser dentistry also allows us to aid those who have snoring and sleep problems by enlarging the airway. Laser dentistry can also lessen infection and swelling by lowering hemoglobin A1C and C-reactive proteins. The use of lasers also allows smaller, more precise removal of decay to allow for smaller fillings. Lasers can also aid in orthodontics by allowing quicker movement. Our dentist also uses lasers to help clean out nerve chambers more thoroughly in root canals. Some of the advanced laser technology featured in our office includes:

  • LANAP® laser gum therapy
  • Phast™ SmoothLase® to revitalize your skin
  • LipLase™ for cosmetic skin and lip enhancements
  • NightLase® for snoring and sleep apnea therapy
