SureSmile Aligners

SureSmile Orthodontics is a nearly invisible alternative to metal braces (similar to Invisalign) for kids, teens, and adults. We custom make plastic trays at Big Sky Dental Clinic to straighten your teeth gradually and comfortably. First, Dr. Clave will take an impression of your teeth to create a series of molds that you will wear for two weeks. Then, over a period of 9-18 months, your teeth will be transformed into the smile that you’ve desired.

Sleep Apnea Treatment

Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when the airway completely collapses, blocking airflow into the lungs. The harder one tries to breathe, the tighter the airway seals. This airway obstruction persists until the brain partially awakens the person, unconsciously closing the jaw and returning the tongue and throat to a normal position.

We offer effective, nonsurgical relief from sleep apnea and other sleep-related disorders—including snoring. Ask us how you can get the restful, healthy sleep you’ve been missing.

Oral Hygiene

A dental cleaning is a professional cleaning you receive from Dr. Chris Clave or his hygienist and takes between 25 and 30 minutes. Cleanings are recommended every six months to prevent excessive plaque buildup. Plaque left untreated can lead to unhealthy gums and tooth decay. Routine dental cleaning should include scaling, root planing, and polishing.

Remove stains from coffee, smoking, or other common causes with a painless tooth whitening from Dr. Clave. We offer several tooth whitening options, all of which will be more effective than any over-the-counter solution.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are a permanent, natural-looking solution to replace a missing tooth. Dental implants bond directly to the jawbone by attaching a titanium post and connector to create a sturdy base for the crown. Dental implants with Dr. Clave are an excellent solution for those who want to improve their smiles while allowing the lifestyle you’re accustomed to – confidently smile, laugh, and eat what you want.

Dental Implant Benefits

  • Mimics the look, function, and feel of natural teeth
  • Replaces single, multiple, or entire arches of teeth
  • Integrates with the jawbone for solid, permanent support
  • Preserves and maintains the jawbone health
  • Enables the enjoyment of your favorite foods
  • Lets you speak, eat, smile, and laugh with confidence
  • Lasts a lifetime, with proper care

Sedation Dentistry

Sedation dentistry with Dr. Chris Clave allows his patients to relax while undergoing restorative and cosmetic dental procedures. Dental sedation allows patients who may feel anxious about a procedure to comfortably relax while they are cared for. Plus, sedation allows you to group various procedures into a single office visit, making it a better use of your time.

Mercury-Free Fillings

The common silver filling contains mercury. Our practice uses the highest-quality biocompatible, tooth-colored restorations to create healthy, beautiful smiles. Since the composite material adheres directly to the tooth enamel, less preparation of the tooth is required before using it. This means it is more durable and provides a more natural-looking result.

Crowns & Bridges

Protect and keep badly decayed or fractured teeth while maintaining a beautiful smile. Made to perfectly match the shape and shade of your other teeth, they’re durable, strong, and undetectable.

Crowns should be placed before the tooth is so decayed that it may fracture. This can often help prevent the expense of root canal therapy in the future. If a tooth is too damaged to have a crown applied, a porcelain bridge may be a good alternative.

Contouring & Reshaping

Tooth reshaping and contouring will help correct chipped, irregularly-shaped, crooked, or overlapping teeth in a single session. Commonly used to alter the length and shape of the teeth for better appearance, this procedure may also help with small bite problems.

Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are made from a thin, translucent layer of porcelain that fits over an existing tooth to give it an improved shape, color, or size. If your teeth are chipped, stained, have an unsightly gap, or are ground down, and you’re ready for a change, you should consider a makeover with veneers.
