Dedicated Dental Health Care for Crystal Lake Patients
Your dental health has a major impact on your overall health. It’s critical to choose a dentist who takes the time to answer your questions, listen to your concerns, and create a custom treatment plan that’s based on your individual needs. We consider all of our Crystal Lake patients to be part of our family and always try to make them feel welcome and at ease. Whether you’re visiting us for your bi-annual dental cleaning, an oral health exam, TMJ treatment, Invisalign, senior dentistry, or another type of dental procedure, you can rest assured that you’re in good hands.
Health-Focused Dental Hygiene
Practicing good oral hygiene habits is an important part of taking care of your teeth and gums. That’s why at our dental practice, we place a strong emphasis on health-focused dental hygiene. When you visit us for your Dental Fitness Exam, you’ll gain a thorough understanding of your oral health and the paths you can pursue to achieve your wellness goals. We can use the OraVital® System to be extremely accurate in our diagnosis of oral health issues and gives us the ability to design highly effective and customized treatment plans.
Your teeth are something you use everyday and, as a result, endure a lot over the years. Overcrowding, discoloration, and wear occur over time as we age, altering not only the appearance of our teeth but also their health and functionality. BioRejuvenation Dentistry addresses these concerns by restoring the condition, comfort, and functionality of your teeth, jaw muscles, and joints, allowing you to feel better and achieve a more beautiful-looking smile.
It’s estimated that over 10 million Americans are impacted by some form of TMJ Disorder. TMJ, or Temporomandibular Joint Disorder, is a painful affliction that’s caused by the dysfunction of the jaw joints and chewing muscles. Symptoms vary widely for this condition and include everything from jaw pain, popping noises, and teeth grinding to facial pain, back pain, chronic headaches, and beyond, making misdiagnosis common. Dr. Hasken is one of the leading professionals in the area that specializes in TMJD treatment. We welcome any and all Crystal
Lake patients seeking a solution to their TMJ suffering.
Regain confidence and achieve a more beautiful, healthier looking smile. Our office is pleased to offer a wide range of cosmetic dental services including teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, dental crowns, and dental composite fillings. Using our revolutionary Bioclear Matrix System, we are able to place incredibly strong, beautiful-looking tooth colored resins, and help our patients achieve their cosmetic dental goals.
Invisalign clear aligners are a wonderful choice for patients seeking a more aesthetically pleasing, comfortable alternative to traditional braces. These “clear braces” come in the form of a set of plastic aligners that are custom made and switched out every one to two weeks and are perfect for resolving issues like tooth rotations, overcrowding, and gaps between teeth. After a thorough evaluation, Dr. Hasken will custom fit your teeth for aligners and create a plan that gets you on the path to achieving a straighter, healthier smile.
Oral surgery procedures such as tooth extractions are sometimes required to resolve issues related to dental trauma, teeth overcrowding, periodontal disease, and tooth decay. Dr. Hasken is well-versed in these matters and has performed countless dental extractions over the years. We will do everything we can to help you feel comfortable and relaxed during your visit which includes taking time to explain procedures and answer your questions. We are even able to offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) upon request. If necessary, we will happily refer you to a trusted oral surgeon in the Crystal Lake area who can attend to your concerns.
If you have been recently diagnosed with sleep apnea or are seeking an alternative to CPAP treatment, we invite you to contact our office for a consultation. Dr. Hasken is a member of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM) and a highly trained dental sleep medicine specialist. Over the years, we have helped numerous patients find relief from sleep apnea symptoms such as snoring, difficulty breathing, dry mouth, and headaches through the use of oral sleep appliances that help them feel better and achieve a more restful night’s sleep.
We can use OraVital® as a way to identify bacteria found with periodontal disease that have known links or direct causes of systemic disease such as stroke, heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease and other inflammation based systemic health issues. OraVital® provides us with a method to test for and reduce these bacteria.
If you are a resident of Crystal Lake and are looking for a dentist that offers root canal therapy, we’d love to hear from you. Root canal therapy is a common dental procedure used for treating cracked teeth, deep cavities, and issues with dental fillings. During this technical procedure, infected pulp is removed from the tooth, and then the tooth is cleaned, shaped, filled, and sealed. In most cases, we are able to complete the entire procedure in a single visit, allowing us to focus solely on restoration during subsequent visits.
Dental Crowns, Bridges & Dentures
Restore the health, comfort, and beauty of your smile. Our dental practice offers a range of restorative dental treatments including dental crowns, bridges, and dentures. Our restorative procedures are designed to help you look and feel your best while rejuvenating the strength and functionality of your teeth. Whether you’re dealing with a cracked tooth, missing tooth, dental trauma, chipped tooth, or another dental concern, we can create a treatment plan that aligns perfectly with your goals and needs.
Health-Focused Preventive Plan
We believe that everyone should have access to quality dental care, which is why we created our Health-Focused Preventive Plan. Designed to support the health and wellbeing of our patients and provide relief from the financial burden of dental insurance, our plan includes preventive dental care and a reduced fee on all services provided at our office. Plans are available for adults, children, and periodontal patients.
