Gum Disease Treatment
In its early stages, gum disease can be difficult to detect. It’s important to take any signs of the condition seriously — it’s the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. With early treatment, gum disease may be stopped and reversed.
Signs that you should seek treatment for gum disease include:
- Bleeding when you brush or floss
- Gums that look shiny, swollen, or red
- Gum tissue that is tender to the touch
- Persistent bad breath
- Loosened teeth
- Widening gaps between teeth

Root Canal Therapy
When a tooth becomes infected at its roots, root canal therapy is usually the fastest and most efficient way to eliminate pain. In this common procedure, Dr. Hepler will use specialized tools to remove the infection from within your tooth. He’ll then replace the top of the tooth, filling any vulnerable areas to prevent further damage. Contact our office immediately if you are experiencing severe tooth pain.
Our experienced team recognizes that silver-colored amalgam fillings can have several negative effects on oral and systemic health. Therefore, we treat patients using mercury-free, tooth-colored fillings. We create these restorations with a durable composite resin material, using only the best and latest BPA-free materials.
We can repair teeth that have been extensively damaged or weakened by decay with a beautiful, natural-looking crown. Crowns cover the entire visible portion of your tooth, acting as a buffer to protect your tooth structure from the pressures of daily biting and chewing.
Fixed dental bridges are one of the most common tooth-replacement procedures because this restorative process involves using your natural teeth to stabilize a replacement.
First, we’ll create a dental crown that blends seamlessly into your smile. Then, we’ll bond the crown to your damaged tooth after affixing a bridge to your supporting, natural teeth. The bridge remains permanently in place and will look and feel secure.
The only difference in care is that you’ll floss your restoration using a tool that cleans under it.
The most affordable way to replace a full arch of teeth is by using traditional dentures. These removable sets of teeth can help you maintain your facial structure and boost your self-esteem. Afterward, you’ll feel confident eating, speaking, and smiling around your friends and family with these natural-looking restorations.
Our professional dental team can perform painless tooth extractions before providing your restorations, further saving you time and the inconvenience of having to visit multiple dentists’ offices.
Wisdom Teeth Extractions
Dr. Hepler is also experienced in providing wisdom teeth extraction surgeries at our Alpharetta office. For this procedure, patients can choose to undergo sedation or nitrous oxide, which eases tension and helps local anesthetic reduce discomfort.
