Meet Our Allouez Dentists
Whether we see a child or adult, a first visit is a time to get to know one another. You will be introduced to our doctors and staff and be led through our cutting edge dental clinic. We will take extra time with children to ensure they will be relaxed on this and future visits. We will discuss your immediate needs. All fees will be discussed in advance. For our patients with insurance,
we will let you know ahead of time your estimated payment portion. We are a Delta Dental Premier Provider.
Usually, a first visit for a dental patient will include xrays and an inital exam. One of our doctors will examine the xrays of you or your child’s teeth then discuss anything that may need attention.
A first visit for an orthodontic or cosmetic dentistry patient will include discussing your unique smile and ways to improve it. We will discuss cost, treatment time and cases that are similar to yours so that you will understand what is achievable.
We do our best to run on time. Help us by having your first visit forms filled out when you arrive.

General Dentistry encompasses the preventative and restorative services used to maintain your oral health.
Good oral hygiene is important, not only for looks, but for general health as well. Poor oral hygiene can lead to a variety of dental and medical problems such as gum disease, infection, bone loss, heart disease and strokes. Regular cleanings can help prevent these problems and provide you with good oral hygiene. According to The Oral Cancer Foundation, someone dies from oral cancer, every hour of every day in the United States alone. When you have your dental cleaning, we are also screening you for oral cancer, which is highly curable if diagnosed early.
Children and adults should be seen for their regular cleaning and check up every six months. People at a greater risk for oral diseases should have their dental check ups more than twice a year.
Dental x-rays are images of the teeth, bones, and soft tissues around them to help find problems with the teeth, mouth, and jaw. X-ray pictures can show cavities, dental structures (such as wisdom teeth), and bone loss that cannot be seen during your dental examination.
Bitewing x-rays show the upper and lower back teeth. These x-rays are used to check for decay between the teeth. They also show bone loss when severe gum disease or a dental infection is present.
Panoramic x-rays show a broad view of the jaws, teeth, sinuses, nasal area, They show problems such as impacted teeth, bone abnormalities, cysts, solid growths (tumors), infections, and fractures.
Exams begin by reviewing the x-rays, models, and photos of your mouth with one of our doctors. Any conditions are noted and explained in detail. The clinical exam includes examination of the teeth and gums, evaluation of the bite and TMJ, an oral cancer screening, and an esthetic evaluation where indicated.
If treatment needs are not complex, we recommend solutions, and ask the patient if they are ready to proceed. If the treatment recommendations are more complex, we may ask you or your child to return for a further consultation.
Teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dental procedure in the world today. Whitening removes organic stains or discolorations primarily caused by aging and certain foods.
We offer prescription take-home systems.
• We provide you with a whitening tray and whitening agent to use at home.
• Convenience: You can do home whitening at any time of the day or night, for short or long periods.
• Portability: You can also use at-home whitening trays while on the go wherever you are.
A dental filling is a type of restorative dentistry treatment used to repair minimal tooth fractures, tooth decay or otherwise damaged surfaces of the teeth.
Dental filling materials include amalgam (silver) and composite (tooth colored) restorations.
A crown is a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant. Crowns are often needed when a large cavity threatens the ongoing health of a tooth. After removing the old restoration and decay if there is not enough of your own natural tooth structure, a build up will be used. Crowns are typically bonded to the tooth using a dental cement. Crowns are often used to improve the strength or appearance of teeth.
Root canal therapy is a simple procedure with minimal discomfort. In root canal therapy the nerve of the tooth is irreversibly damaged and needs to be removed. Following the removal of all diseased material, your root chamber is cleaned and sealed to help prevent any further problems.
After root canal therapy it’s important to place a crown on your tooth to strengthen it and protect it from further complications. The only alternative treatment for a tooth with an irreversibly damaged pulp is to extract it.
Nitrous oxide or “laughing gas” is used to help relax anxious patients of all ages in the dental office but especially children. It is non-allergenic and one of the safest anti-anxiety agents used in dental offices. It produces a relaxed, mildly sedated state that helps make trips to the dentist more enjoyable for patients. Nitrous oxide is completely reversible in a matter of minutes. The ease of reversal allows you to safely drive home or go to work after your appointment.
Digital impression taking is a state of the art technique which allows for no mess fabrication of crowns, bridges and other dental prosthesis. Your digital file is sent directly to the dental lab which cuts down on the amount of time it takes the lab to make your dental prosthesis. Digital impressions are also used during Invisalign treatment to create the aligners used to straighten your teeth.
Root Canal Therapy
Cosmetic dentistry can help patients with:
• Cracked teeth
• Chipped or fractured teeth
• Discolored teeth
• Excess or uneven gum tissue
• Missing teeth
• Decayed teeth
• Weakened teeth
Cosmetic dentistry includes veneers, dental implants, crowns, bridges and gum recontouring, and may also integrate other dental treatments such as white fillings, teeth whitening, and bonding.
At Allouez Family Dental Care, we offer advanced materials and techniques for our crown and bridge treatments. Today’s restorations can give you healthy teeth that last for years while looking completely natural.
Dental implants are the best way to replace areas where teeth are missing. A dental implant is a post that is surgically placed in your jaw beneath your gums and is fitted with a crown to simulate your natural teeth. Unlike bridges, implants do not need to be anchored to other teeth, which can benefit your overall oral health. Implants are anchored in your jaw and are not removable like dentures. They can be cleaned like your natural teeth
Crowns and bridges are permanent restorations that are used when inadequate healthy tooth structure is present for a traditional filling. Crowns restore the normal shape and color of your tooth and fit right on top of your existing tooth. Crowns or “caps” are used: to replace missing tooth structure, protect a weak tooth from fracturing or to strengthen a fractured tooth, improve your bite if your tooth is badly shaped, improve the esthetics of discolored teeth and to cover implants.
Bridges are used to cover areas of your mouth where teeth are missing.
Bridges are used improve your bite, which allows you to eat easier. They also improve oral esthetics by filling in missing spaces. A crown will be placed on teeth at each end of the space and there will be a fake tooth connected to both crowns at each side of the missing space. Bridges are not removable and are a more affordable way to fill in missing spaces in your mouth when implants are not an option.
Veneers are non-removable custom “shells” fitted to the front of your teeth after a small amount of enamel is removed. They can be used to change the shape, length and color of your teeth as well as fill in small spaces between your teeth. Veneers are thinner and smaller than crowns and can be used to improve the appearance of your teeth in some circumstances.
Crowns and Bridges
Dr. Miller or Dr. Kollath may discuss the benefits of having healthy teeth and proper jaw alignment with you. Crooked and crowded teeth are harder to clean and maintain. This can result in tooth decay, gum disease, and lead to tooth loss. Other orthodontic problems can contribute to abnormal wear of tooth surfaces, inefficient chewing function, excessive stress on gum tissue and the bone that supports the teeth, or misalignment of the jaw joints known as the TMJ. These can lead to chronic headaches and face or jaw pain.
For most people, a beautiful smile is the most obvious benefit of orthodontics. After your braces come off, you’ll feel more
Invisalign® aligners are clear and designed for orthodontic changes to improve your smile. They are custom-made for you, virtually invisible and fit snugly over your teeth. Your doctor will design a custom treatment plan for you after digitally scanning your teeth. The aligners come in sets that you will change along your course of treatment as your teeth shift and move into more ideal positions to help give you the smile you’ve always wanted!
Snoring is caused by various reasons like apnea, malformations of teeth or mouth, obesity, allergies or breathing problems among others. Dental snoring devices are useful in the treatment of snoring especially those set off by apnea. Sleep apnea is a dangerous condition wherein the affected individual experiences abnormal pauses in his respiration, while in deep sleep.
Dental snoring appliances will thrust the lower jaw forward and prevent the tongue from blocking the air passage, which can cause snoring. These small devices made of flexible plastic are made to suit the measurements of the mouth and can be worn by patients of sleep apnea while they sleep. The specifically designed dental snoring will lift the soft palate within the mouth thereby preventing the vibrating sounds. Studies have proven that these devices are effective in reducing the intensity of snoring. There are no side effects; however some people might experience tooth discomfort, excessive salivation and mucosal dryness due to the usage of these devices.
Snoring could be an embarrassing condition; however the latest devices like dental snoring appliances have made the treatment of snoring so easy and effective.
Cut or Bitten Tongue, Lip or Cheek
Ice can be applied to any bruised areas. For bleeding, apply firm (but gentle) pressure with sterile gauze or a clean cloth. If the bleeding does not stop with pressure or continues after 15 minutes, go to an emergency room.
Broken Braces and Wires
Remove a broken appliance only if it comes out easily. If it is lodged or painful to remove, cover any protruding edges with wax, cotton balls, gauze or chewing gum. DO NOT REMOVE any wire caught in the gums, cheek or tongue; see a dentist immediately. Emergency attention is usually not required for loose or broken appliances that cause no discomfort.
Rinse the area with warm water. Put a cold compress over the facial are of the injury.
Recover any broken tooth fragments. Call our office immediately.
Knocked Out Permanent Tooth
Recover the tooth, making sure to hold it by the crown (top), and not the root end. Rinse, but do not clean or handle the tooth more than necessary. Reinsert the tooth in the socket and hold in place using a clean piece of gauze or cloth. If the tooth cannot be reinserted, carry it in a cup containing milk or water. Because time is essential, see Dr. Miller or Dr. Kollath immediately.
Possible Broken Jaw
In the event of jaw injury, tie the mouth closed with a towel, tie or handkerchief. Go immediately to an emergency room.
Bleeding After a Baby Tooth Falls Out
Fold a piece of gauze and place it (tightly) over the bleeding area. Bite down on the gauze for 15 minutes—if bleeding continues, call our office at 920.339.8980
Cold or Canker Sores
Over the counter medications will usually provide temporary relief. If sores persist, visit our office for an examination.
