Crowns and Bridges

Dental crowns are natural-looking restorations that completely cover existing teeth. There are many reasons why a crown may be recommended, including extensive decay and fractures. A bridge is a type of restoration that helps to replace missing teeth. Dr. Courtin and Dr. Olson both focus on preserving as much of the natural tooth structure as possible and they use the newest techniques and materials when restoring teeth.


Endodontics is a field of dentistry that deals with the treatment of pulp-related diseases of the teeth.  The dental pulp is the center of the tooth beneath the enamel which is composed of connective tissues. Dr. Courtin and Dr. Olson use rotary endodontic tools to make the procedures smoother and more comfortable for the patient.

Composite Fillings

Dental fillings are used to restore damaged or decayed teeth back to their normal functionality and shape. At Courtin Family Dentistry, we use composite material for all our filling restorations. Composite is a tooth-colored material that is durable and reliable, ensuring a restoration that lasts and blends in with your natural teeth.

Implant Crowns

Implants are today’s best option for replacing missing teeth since they also replace the root and can last a lifetime. Once the implant is placed by a dental specialist, Dr. Courtin or Dr. Olson will replace the visible part of the missing tooth with a natural-looking implant crown. Implant crowns are similar to normal crowns and are placed on top of an implant to fully restore a missing tooth.

Oral Surgery/Extractions

Both Dr. Courtin and Dr. Olson are well-experienced in dental extractions and oral surgery. The doctors may recommend extracting a tooth for various reasons but always with an aim to safeguard your overall oral health. To ensure the experience is as comfortable as possible for you, our dentists use the latest tools and techniques available.


Orthodontics is a specialty field of dentistry that deals with correcting the alignment of the teeth. Most patients choose orthodontic treatment to achieve a healthy and beautiful smile. Braces are among the most commonly used dental appliances in orthodontics. They efficiently treat a wide range of bite and alignment issues. Other appliances used for orthodontic treatment include removable aligners like Invisalign.

Dr. Olson has been treating patients with bonded braces for many years. Both Dr. Courtin and Dr. Olson are certified Invisalign providers and are able to treat both simple and more complex cases.

Misaligned teeth are a contributing factor to periodontal disease. Therefore, straightening your teeth can improve not only your confidence but also your overall health.


Sleep apnea is an obstructive sleep disorder that occurs when the airway to the lungs is blocked. The causes of sleep apnea are mainly obesity, structural differences in the anatomy of the mouth, nasal malfunctions, etc. As the patients develop sleep apnea, they will begin to experience interrupted sleep patterns preventing them from having a sound sleep at night.

If snoring is an issue, Dr. Courtin and Dr. Olson may recommend a snore guard. This oral appliance prevents the tissues of the mouth behind the throat from collapsing during sleep. Snore guards are easy to use and are known to be a comfortable solution for preventing snoring. Other types of appliances can also be made after the patient has been medically diagnosed with sleep apnea, which is achieved by participating in a sleep study.

TMJ (Night Guard)

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is the jointthatlinksthe lower jawbone to the skull. Millions of Americans complain of experiencing pain in the jaws, face,andneckandalsoof recurring headaches. Allthese symptomscould betheresultoftemporomandibulardisorders(TMD). 

At Courtin Family Dentistry, we provide our patients with night guards in order to treatbruxism.Bruxism is an involuntary rhythmic movement or clenching of the jaws against each other. Grinding of the teeth is typically experienced while the patient is asleep,althoughdaytimeclenchingof the teeth is quite common amongindividualswho work under stressful conditions. 


Laser therapy is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that safely and effectively treats periodontal disease and symptoms of TMD/jaw pain. The laser can also be used to perform soft tissue contouring for improved esthetics.  
Laser therapy uses infrared light that works at the cellular level to assist in blood flow, increase oxygen, and stimulate the body's own healing process. Laser treatment promotes the regeneration of soft tissue, ligaments, and bone around a tooth while killing bacteria at the site and reducing pain and inflammation without the use of medications.  
We also use a special attachment that allows us to offer pain management therapy for TMD and jaw pain. This therapy can help improve range of motion and physical function while accelerating healing and reducing inflammation and pain. These treatments take about 10 minutes and should be performed about once or twice a week. Although the number of appointments varies case by case, the majority of our patients undergo three rounds of therapy and often experience a reduction of pain after just one session!
