Laser Assisted Periodontal Care
Healthy gums are vital to maintaining your overall body and oral wellness. Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, starts as gingivitis and can become very dangerous if it continues to progress. Dr. Rutherford’s highly-qualified and trained periodontal therapists treat gum disease at any stage utilizing a number of periodontal care methods such as laser therapy, saliva DNA testing and antibiotic therapy to help keep your teeth and gums as clean and healthy as possible.
Laser dentistry with our state-of-the-art Diode Laser can be an excellent treatment technique for gum recontouring, periodontal disease, comprehensive oral cleanings, and more. Our non-surgical laser techniques can often provide a more gentle treatment and an increased level of precision when compared to traditional procedures. Additionally, our Diode Laser is designed to reduce bleeding, discomfort levels, and recovery times for an enhanced experience and optimal oral health.
TMJ can cause constant headaches, severe pain, consistent popping sensations in your jaw and other debilitating effects. In some cases, TMJ pain can even spread to other areas of your body and possibly affect your daily activities. From oral appliances to bite therapy and medicinal options, Dr. Rutherford offers a comprehensive range of TMJ treatments that can help you alleviate the symptoms of this common condition.

Bruxism (Teeth Clenching) Treatment with Nightguards
Many people grind and clench their teeth while they sleep, a condition known as bruxism. This can lead to serious dental problems as well as headaches, jaw pain, and other symptoms. At the Art of Dentistry, our experienced dental team can have an oral nightguard custom-designed for the best possible fit. These treatments can prevent the teeth from grinding together during sleep and significantly reduce problems caused by bruxism.
Sleep Apnea and Snoring
Snoring and breathing pauses while you sleep are caused by sleep apnea – a condition which can lead to serious, even life-threatening risks to your health. Fatigue, headaches, high blood pressure, and many other symptoms may be an indication that you are suffering from sleep apnea. Dr. Rutherford works with a team of doctors specializing in sleep disorders to create customized treatment plan to help you sleep (and breathe) easier throughout the night.
