Drs. Gordan & Susan Markic of Markic Dental have extensive experience working with both adults & children. We understand that these two groups have different needs & we address them all, providing only the highest quality regular dental hygiene visits, sealants, mouthguards, & patient/parent education. We place a high emphasis on sealants, which at less than half the cost of conventional fillings are effective in preventing tooth decay on the biting surfaces of chewing teeth. Without anesthetics or drilling, sealants are one of the most simple & important preventive services we have.
Emergency Dental Care
We recognize that dental emergency situations do arise & at Markic Dental, we will do our best to respond to your problem promptly. Whether it is something as simple as a tooth filling or a complicated procedure requiring a Markic Dental dentist, we can provide you with assistance. If the problem arises when the offices are closed, our answering service will forward your message to your dentist.
Markic Dental offers dentistry for the entire family. We understand that adults & children have different needs & we address them all. Adults want the best technology, the most informed doctors & the highest-quality care, while kids want to be comfortable & respected. That’s why our dentists have extensive experience working with both adults & children. We can make your dental experience more enjoyable for everyone.
Care of Your Child’s Teeth
Teaching your kids the right way to take care of their smile is very important. The Markic Dental staff would be glad to give both you & your child the oral hygiene education you need to keep you clean & cavity-free.
This includes our regular dental hygiene visits, sealants, mouthguards & patient/parent education. We place a high emphasis on sealants, which are effective in preventing tooth decay on the biting surfaces of chewing teeth. This plastic coating, which is clear or tooth-colored, is applied to deep pits & grooves. This seals them in the areas where decay is most likely to begin. At less than half the cost of conventional fillings, without anesthetics or drilling, sealants are one of the most important preventive services we have.
VELscope® Cancer Screening
When it comes to oral cancer, early detection leads to more treatment options & better outcomes. VELscope is a revolutionary hand-held device that helps dentists & hygienists detect potentially cancerous tissue earlier & more easily than before. The VELscope system works by emitting a safe blue light that makes tissues in your mouth appear fluorescent, revealing abnormalities that might not be visible to the naked eye. In fact, VELscope is the only non-invasive device clinically proven to help discover otherwise undetectable signs of oral disease.
Markic Dental & Associates is certified in VELscope technologies. Call today to schedule your oral cancer screening–it may change your life!
Relax while we give you a more healthy & beautiful smile with amazingly comfortable oral or nitrous oxide sedation dentistry. We care for patients who:
- are afraid of needles & shots
- have had bad experiences before
- have not been to the dentist in a long time
- always gag when having dental work done
- just can’t seem to get numb
- feel their teeth are too far gone for traditional treatment
Root Canal Therapy
Did you know that each tooth contains a long, thin strand of dental pulp that provides the tooth with nutrients & nerves & extends through the tooth’s root? If the pulp becomes infected or injured, the tooth’s nerves die without endodontic treatment. In this case the tooth would have to be removed. Root canals are designed to save such damaged teeth. During the procedure (after the tooth is numb), the diseased pulp is removed & the tooth is permanently sealed with a porcelain or tooth-colored crown. We are happy to provide single-appointment root canal therapy for you.
TMD (Jaw Pain) Therapy
Commonly misdiagnosed or overlooked, a subtle misalignment in the temporomandibular joint can be a common, significant source of head & neck pain. If you have frequent & severe head or neck pain, you owe it to yourself to investigate our doctor’s life-changing approach to correcting these TMJ problems.
We offer in-office digital x-rays for your convenience. Digital x-rays are computer-generated images. These images require up to 90% less radiation than with conventional film-type x-rays. Instead of using the traditional silver-oxide x-ray film that must be developed & then fixed in caustic & environmentally damaging solutions, the new system takes pictures via a small electronic sensor & instantaneously transmits a picture of the tooth onto the video monitor in the treatment room. Therefore, we can see your teeth & surrounding structures immediately. Feel free to contact us for more details or to make an appointment!
