I was treated as a valued customer and the staff were totally friendly and efficient. I would recommend to anyone wishing a totally professional staff that treats you like family."

    -Tim T.

  • "From the receptionist to the actual dental chair. Everyone was very courteous and helpful with me through MY whole process. Dr. Sorenson was thorough and in-depth, explaining to me what my options were. Amber seem to make it hurt a whole lot less.,as well. She also gave me some referrals to possibly help me save money, in my particular situation. Every little bit counts... All the way out the door again, within 40 minutes. Thanks again Sawtooth Dental!"

Our Services

Implants

Losing teeth can make it hard to smile. We specialize in state-of-the-art implants that will change your life! Dental Implants are tiny titanium posts that attach to your jaw bone. They provide support for replacement teeth, which look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The implants are extremely strong and stable, allowing you to eat and act as if your original teeth were back!

Sedation Dentistry

We do everything we can to make your visit as comfortable as possible. If you dread going to the dentist, you're not alone. Dental procedures can cause nervousness and anxiety. Not only will our friendly staff and doctors put you at ease, but we also offer sedation options to make you not only emotionally, but also physically relaxed.

Cosmetic Dentistry

WHITENING - We use whitening techniques such as KoR, which eliminates the Irritation and ineffectiveness of traditional whitening products.

CLEAR BRACES - If you want straighter teeth without enduring a mouth full of metal, clear braces could be for you. We'll create a series of clear removable aligners to straighten your teeth. You'll wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, visiting us once every 6 weeks to make sure that your smile is progressing as planned.

VENEERS - Dental veneers are super thin, flexible porcelain liners designed to cover the front surface of any teeth that may be discolored or misshapen to improve its appearance. The liners bond to the teeth, changing their color, shape and size, and are more stain resistant than an actual resin tooth.

General Dentistry

We'll do what it takes to keep you smiling! As a general dentistry practice, we also offer many other services, such as crowns and bridges, and preventative dental care. We also offer custom sports guards in YOUR schools colors! If you don't see your need addressed on this page, call us to see if we provide the service you need.

Comfort

We care about your comfort in the office, some of the services we offer are, paraffin hand wax, soothing neck wrap, blankets, pillows and eye masks. We also offer Netflix and Pandora Radio.

Innovative Technology for the Best Results

As technology advances, so do we. We use laser technology, digital x-rays, and cameras to ensure the highest level of efficiency and accuracy in our work. LEARN MORE about the technologies we utilize in your care.

Laser Cavity Detection

A new application for laser light, called a Diagnodent, has now made detection of “hidden decay” 99% accurate. This laser makes it easier to find decay – in cracks, crevices, and beneath the surface of the tooth – which might otherwise go undetected by traditional X-rays or even through examination.

The Diagnodent consists of a simple device with a wand attached. Using the wand, the dentist scans the tooth into a computer, which then determines whether decay is present. Earlier detection means less damage, pain, and hassle for you down the road. It’s quick, painless and very accurate!

Laser Gum Treatment

If you have swollen, bleeding gums, you may have periodontal disease. And the sooner we eliminate this menace in your mouth, the better. Left untreated, periodontal disease can cause serious loss of tooth and bone, and it has recently been linked to heart disease and stroke as well as premature and low weight babies.

Fortunately, we can stop this infection quickly and easily with laser therapy.It gently removes infected gum tissue and actually vaporizes the bacteria causing the infection. This process is very high tech and effective.

Intraoral Camera

The intraoral camera is a diagnostic dental tool allowing us to more clearly identify potential problems within the mouth early on. The tiny intraoral camera can be inserted into a patient’s mouth, taking pictures of the teeth and displaying the images on a computer screen. Using the intraoral camera saves time and makes problems easily visible to both patient and doctor. It is actually possible to see into the tooth and detect problems beneath the surface. Patients can view the areas we will be working on, making procedures more understandable. The accompanying software also provides clear and accurate data so that the best treatment options can be selected. To learn more about the intraoral camera, please contact our office today.

Digital X-rays

Digital dental X-rays offer many advantages. Although risk of radiation damage from normal X-rays is small, digital X-rays limit exposure by over 50%, enhancing your safety significantly. The images from digital X-rays can be fine-tuned to detect bone disease, bone loss, and dental decay. They can also be used as an oral cancer-screening device or to scan for TMJ or sinus-related problems. To take a digital X-ray of your teeth, we insert a small sensor into your mouth. The X-rays are then quickly transmitted to a computer screen where the Doctor can easily review them with you.

Find Your New Dental Home

We don’t just treat patients here, we help people get the healthy, beautiful smiles they’ve always wanted. We want to create a lasting relationship with you and help you meet your health and life goals. No matter where in the Magic Valley you are, you can come see us at Sawtooth Dental!
