Dr. Janis Moriarty's practice offers a full array of dental services to help you maintain healthy teeth and gums. We also take into consideration today's concerns regarding disease and radiation control as well as keeping our environment safe.  We follow strict guidelines to help ensure our patient's safety. You can read more about our services and what we do to protect you on this on this page.  See what sets us apart from the rest. 

We want to assure you that Dr. Moriarty and her staff understand the growing concern about radiation exposure, infection control and keeping our environment safe.

We are proud to offer digital radiography. This is the latest technology used to take dental x-rays. Digital x-rays quickly capture images of your teeth and gums and stores them on our secure, protected and encrypted computer system. Digital x-rays gives our doctors a beneath-the-surface look at your teeth and gums, but with a radiation level that is 80-90 percent less than that of already low traditional dental x-rays. We follow the MA State Radiation Control guidelines as well as the FDA's Center for Devices and Radiological Health. Since the images are captured electronically and there is no disposal of harmful waste and chemicals, digital x-rays are safer for the environment.

We go to great lengths that include annual training to create a safe environment for our patients and our staff. We follow strict infection control procedures as outlined by OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) and the CDC (Centers for Disease Control). We follow universal precautions in our practice which means we take protective measures with every patient to prevent the spread of disease. All instruments, including the hand pieces, are sterilized in an autoclave and all surfaces and materials are thoroughly disinfected  between patients.

Our office follows all MA Dental Board Rules and Regulations. Our patients help us stay in compliance by updating and completing a medical history update form that we will provide to you annually. This form is also available to you on this website.

In 2007 it was recommended by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) and the ADA (American Dental Association) to install a clean water separator system in dental offices to help achieve a common goal to keep our public water system safe and clean. We are proud to  say that our practice recognized this need and was one of the first practices to install this necessary system years before the 2007 recommendation.

We are committed to protecting both your health, the health of our staff and the protection of our environment.

Initial Oral Examination
Your initial oral examination includes a visual examination, charting, periodontal probing, oral cancer screening, diagnosis and treatment recommendations. We may also take x-rays for proper diagnosis of the anterior (front) and posterior (back) teeth as well as the bite-wing  x-ray series for proper diagnosis of proximal decay of posterior teeth.

Implants
Implants are synthetic structures that are placed in the area of the tooth normally occupied by the root. Implants are anchored to the jawbone or metal framework on the bone and act as a foundation for an artificial tooth or permanent bridge. In some cases, implants can be used to attach dentures.

Veneers
Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain or plastic cemented over the front of your teeth to change their color or shape. Veneers are used on teeth with uneven surfaces or are chipped, discolored, oddly shaped, unevenly spaced or crooked. Read More...

Crowns and Bridges
Crowns are synthetic caps, usually made of a material like porcelain, placed on the top of a tooth. Crowns are typically used to restore a tooth's function and appearance following a restorative procedure such as a root canal. When decay in a tooth has become so advanced that large portions of the tooth must be removed, crowns are often used to restore the tooth. Read More...

Teeth Whitening
Whitening procedures have effectively restored the smile of people with stained, dull, or discolored teeth.The darker tissue of your teeth, the dentin, can become exposed as the outer layer of enamel is worn away by the effects of aging or things like caffeine and tobacco. Read More...

Invisalign®
Invisalign's® invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners will give you the beautiful straight teeth you've always wanted. And best of all, no one can tell you're wearing them. Invisalign is great for adults and teenagers. Read More...

Root Canal Therapy
Root canals are tiny passageways that branch off from beneath the top of the tooth, coursing their way vertically downward, until they reach the tip of the root. Read More...

Toothaches
Simple toothaches can often be relieved by rinsing the mouth to clear it of debris and other matter. Sometimes, a toothache can be caused or aggravated by a piece of debris lodged between the tooth and another tooth. Avoid placing an aspirin between your tooth and gum to relieve pain, because the dissolving aspirin can actually harm your gum tissue. Read More...

Dental Emergencies
Our goal is to help you to minimize the risk of emergency treatment. This is why we commit a generous amont of time designing a Lifetime Treatment Plan that will help you to offset the possibility of unforseen pain or tooth breakage.
