Our Naples Office Offers Affordable Family and General Dental Services
At Smiles by Hale, we provide these dental care services to patients of all ages:
New Patient Exam
All our new patient and routine exams include a thorough discussion of your medical history, low-exposure diagnostic X-rays (if needed), a comprehensive clinical evaluation, individualized diagnosis, and treatment planning. During your appointment, Dr. Hale will also check your head and neck area for any abnormal findings (discolorations, lumps, etc.) and perform an intra-oral examination of your teeth, gums, and soft tissue structures.
Preventative Care Visits
Periodic checkups help you maintain good oral health by stopping periodontal (gum) disease and other issues before they start. Regular exams that include diagnostic images and professional teeth cleanings are the cornerstone of prevention.
Under the watchful eye of Dr. Hale, our skilled professionals will provide you with detailed instructions on how to improve your at-home oral hygiene. At that time, a member of our team may also recommend an additional preventative treatment – for example, sealants or fluoride.
For your convenience, we offer a wide array of restorative treatments that include the diagnosis and treatment of periodontal (gum) disease, tooth-colored fillings, partial or full dentures, crowns, onlays, inlays, and more. Our high-tech office also allows us to provide more advanced dental treatments such as root canal therapy (RCT), Zoom™ Teeth Whitening, dental implants, and orthodontics.
Unlike preventative dentistry, cosmetic dentistry is focused on improving the appearance of the teeth, mouth, and smile using the latest diagnostic and treatment procedures. Examples of cosmetic dental procedures that Dr. Hale is highly trained to perform include porcelain veneers, gum contouring, dental implants, Zoom™ Teeth Whitening, and orthodontics (Invisalign, clear braces, retainers, etc).
Zoom™ Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening is perhaps the most commonly recommended cosmetic procedure that we offer. When your teeth get stained from smoking, poor oral hygiene, food, or drinks, our professional bleaching solutions can make your smile’s appearance look brighter, healthier, and more natural within a matter of weeks.
Custom Smile Design
A smile makeover involves a comprehensive assessment of your smile’s aesthetics with the overall goal of improving its appearance. Based on your consultation with Dr. Hale, he may recommend one or more cosmetic procedures that involve several teeth in both the upper and lower arches.
Sleep Apnea Treatments
Loud snoring, daytime sleepiness, chronic fatigue, and irritability could be signs that you have obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Left untreated, OSA can place you at higher risk when you already have another chronic disease or illness. At Smiles by Hale, we specialize in sleep apnea treatments that help our patients sleep better – and healthier – at night.
For those with dental anxiety, we offer in-office minimal oral sedation that is intended to make the patient feel sleepy, relaxed, and pain-free without losing consciousness or experiencing changes in breathing. As a safe and effective sedation method, determining if you are a candidate for minimal oral sedation requires a prior consultation that includes your medical history.
Orthodontic Screenings and Treatment
If crooked or misaligned teeth are keeping you from smiling, it’s never too late to get the straight, beautiful, natural-looking smile that you’ve always wanted. From orthodontic screenings for children, teens, and adults to Invisalign clear plastic aligners and retainers, our teeth- straightening solutions help patients of all ages smile with confidence again!
