Cleanings

With a convenient location, flexible hours, staff that treat you like family, and state-of-the-art technology, we work with you and your family to ensure that you have a lifetime of optimal dental health.

Our gentle dental cleanings and procedures reduce nervousness as we offer dental sedation (with Nitrous Oxide) so you can relax. Oh, and don’t worry, you’ll be able to safely drive yourself home afterwards.

We recommend two professional cleanings a year (every six months).


Dental sealants

At Rasmussen Dental, we make sure your children's’ smiles are at their best after every visit, even when it comes to dental sealants. Dental sealants are a special type of coating painted on teeth that is nearly invisible. It helps avoid cavities and the related shots, fillings, and multiple trips to the dentist (even though we love to see you). Dental sealants for children only take a few minutes and are completely painless.

Plus, most insurance packages cover sealants at 100%!


Tooth Colored Fillings

While many people just don't want an ugly, black, or silver metal plug in their teeth (which can cause tooth decay later on), Rasmussen offers state-of-the-art restorations that are a natural-looking white. Our fillings don’t contain metals and they can actually strengthen your teeth! As an added bonus, our fillings are bonded very tightly with the healthy part of the tooth, so there is much less chance of decay in the future!

What are you waiting for? Replace your ugly silver fillings with tooth-colored fillings today!


Root canals

Yes, we know the last thing you want to hear are the words “Root Canal.” However, we have good news for you. With the modern anesthetics and technology we use, we can make getting a root canal quite tolerable, even painless! Here at Rasmussen, we offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) which will help you relax during your experience.

What are Root Canals and Why Would I Need One?

When dental decay reaches the nerve of the tooth (or the tooth has become infected), a simple filling will not suffice. A root canal can save the tooth by removing the pulp of a tooth and replacing it with a filling material.


3D imagining & external X-ray

To make your check-ups even more enjoyable, we utilize 3D imaging and external X-Ray for a painless, gentle dental experience.

This is especially great for small children or for people who tend to gag with inserts in their mouth. Plus, it’s a quick process, too!

Our external X-rays use a digital sensor which immediately uploads the images into our computer. And, as an added plus, this method results in 90% less radiation than conventional X-rays! No more waiting for images to develop and no more chemical waste to pollute the environment.


Nasal spray

For patients (adults and children over 88 pounds) that may need some anesthetic, we are one of the first to offer KOVANAZE (tetracaine HCl and oxymetazoline HCl). Kovanaze is a painless, FDA approved topical anesthetic nasal spray designed to numb the upper teeth before procedures. That means NO NEEDLES!

“I went to Rasmussen Dental for a Crown Procedure and received the nasal spray for numbness. It was SO much better than an injection!

No needles, no fat lip! And the nasal spray left no bad side effects in the nostril. This is the way to go :)”
