Sonicare® redefines “clean”
Once you use it, you can’t live without it! Think superior thoroughness, and gentler cleaning. Sonicare gives you naturally whiter teeth and healthier gums. Great for traditional braces, hard to reach places, and periodontal pockets. With its detoxifying attributes, it is not surprising that it is the power toothbrush most recommended by dental professionals.
Fluoride Tooth Paste And Gel
Sense and sensitivity
This professional strength toothpaste provides a daily defense against cavities and sensitivity. It will also help to re-mineralize enamel, and protect newly-whitened smiles from rebound.
CloSYS™ Toothpaste And Oral Rinse
Unlike traditional mouthwashes, CloSYS Antiseptic Oral Rinse does not rely on flavor to cover bad breath. Unique, patented stabilized Chlorine Dioxide System eliminates harmful bacteria that irritate gums and cause bad breath, promoting healthy gums and a clean oral environment. There is a noticeable fresher, healthier and cleaner feeling after each use. For an unsurpassed program of oral hygiene, use CloSYS twice a day or as directed by Dr. Yankie.
This toothpaste does not contain the harmful foaming agent sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), which has been associated with canker sores.

In between in-office whitening procedures, you can maintain your PureWhite™ Smile with our anywhere, anytime teeth whitening pens.

Clinical studies have shown that whitening your teeth with active ingredients carbamide or hydrogen peroxide is safe. However, as with all peroxide based whitening products, it is not recommended for pregnant and lactating women, and in children under the age of 16. Teeth whitening products do not lighten porcelain, composite or any other restorative material.
MI paste is a Doctor or Hygienist prescribed topical paste, which contains bio-available calcium and phosphate. It is recommended to decrease bleaching sensitivity, decalcification or root sensitivity. It can be used with or without custom trays and comes in delicious flavor combinations.
The little product that could
Whether you have been a natural “grinder” or “clencher” all your life, (or are just a temporary one due to excess stress), teeth, however strong, are no match for the force of our jaws in grinding mode. Grinding(Bruxism) can literally destroy your teeth.
If you own a valuable car, wouldn’t you rather bring it inside a garage overnight, during a hail storm? That is exactly a night guard’s function: to provide protection from your natural elements!
There are two types of night guards that Dr. Yankie prescribes:
- Soft Night Guard
- Hard Night Guard
95% Of the bruxers (clinchers and grinders) manage very nicely with a “soft” night guard. This guard is typically made for the lower teeth, which seems the most comfortable and conservative in size. At the approximate cost of one filling, the soft night guard provides a great deal of protection. Think about how many fillings, crowns and healthy teeth you will save! We keep the cost of this guard below market so people will have more incentive to protect their teeth. The soft night guard can also be used as a bleach tray and a matching upper tray can be custom made to complete your entire bleaching kit.
A little night guard is such a surprisingly simple solution to a huge problem. And so cost effective! Talk to us about it and see which night guard suits you.
Sports are great for mind and body, generally speaking, but they can be real hard on your teeth. Any of the ball sports can be especially damaging. So if you would like to protect those beautiful, well cared for teeth, talk to Dr. Yankie about custom made guards with the best performance.
Retention that works! Vivera retainers are fresh, strong retainers that accommodate each patient’s unique retention needs after Orthodontic treatment. They can be used by both Invisalign system patients as any other (classic) orthodontic patient. Vivera retainers are manufactured using the advanced fabrication behind the Invisalign system aligner, resulting in a precise, smooth, comfortable and “invisible” fit. They are 30% stronger than most similar products. Using a PVS Impression or the last ClinCheck® stage, the patient’s ideal dentition is kept digitally on file for future use to help maintain beautiful, long lasting smiles.
