At Rogers Center for Dentistry, we use the latest in digital X-ray technology. The new digital X-ray machines limit the radiation beam to the small area being X-rayed and the digital sensors create less radiation than film. We want to ensure the safety of all our patients so we implement the latest technology which exposes the patient to the least amount radiation as possible. Another added benefit to the latest X-ray technology is that digital images are produced instantly which create faster appointment times.

Nitrous Oxide (or Laughing Gas) is safe to use for dental procedures. Nitrous Oxide is not addictive and is often used by dentists in common dental procedures.

At one time or other bad breath affects all of us. Sometimes, bad breath occurs simply because the food we eat is still in our blood system. The smell of the food will still be present when you exhale. However, bad breath can result from a variety of other causes such as oral disease or infection, dry mouth, poor oral hygiene and tobacco use. At Rogers Center for Dentistry we can help you determine the cause and eliminate chronic bad breath.

Grinding the teeth can cause jaw pain (including temporomandibular joint (TMJ)) and can lead to other conditions as it slowly breaks down your teeth. Bruxism is a fairly common dental disorder that causes sufferers to grind or clench their teeth, especially at night. Without treatment, Bruxism can disturb sleep and make eating painful. Dr. Rogers can provide you with a teeth guard to help alleviate the effects of Bruxism.

When a tooth is damaged, bacteria can invade the inner tooth and result in an infection – an abscessed tooth. The abscessed tooth can cause selling and pain. The infection can quickly spread through the rest of the body creating a medical emergency. If you have a broken tooth (often occurring with wisdom teeth), please visit your dentist immediately. Rogers Center for Dentistry can help you alleviate your pain and treat your medical condition.

Dental sealants are a thin, plastic coating painted on the chewing surfaces of teeth to prevent tooth decay. The painted on liquid sealant quickly bonds into the depressions and groves of the teeth forming a protective shield over the enamel of each tooth. Dentists advise children to get sealants on their permanent molars and premolars as soon as these teeth come in. The dental sealants can protect the teeth through the cavity-prone years of ages 6 to 14. However, adults without decay or fillings in their molars can also benefit from sealants.

  • Dr. Rogers is, perhaps, my favorite dentist ever. I am 33. I have never - I repeat *Never, liked my smile. Recently Dr. Rogers performed some cosmetic dentistry on several of my front teeth. He nailed the color, shape, bite -- everything. I could not be happier. For the first time in my entire life, I love looking in the mirror and seeing my teeth. ;) I came to Dr. Rogers originally because he did a great job correcting one of my friends' teeth -- Huge noticeable difference. What I especially like is how kind he is about it also. He asks for your input, feedback, etc. I have never felt rushed in his office. He takes the time to explain in detail the dental work required. Always asks if I have questions, concerns… The office is very clean, all the staff are friendly, patient, equipment is up to speed. The hygienists are excellent at what they do, esp teeth cleaning. I have never waited long to be checked in or seen. All around good experience. Even pricing works out for me every time. Very happy with my teeth. Happy with the team. Would recommend to Anyone.
