Our Services

Preventive and restorative health. That’s what we’re all about. With our modern technology we provide the services you need.

Dental Emergency

If you experience trauma or have pain and swelling with an area of your mouth, it is important to seek emergency dental treatment.  The goal of an emergency dental visit is to diagnose the source of the discomfort and provide pain relief.  Contact us for emergency dental services.

Dentistry for Children

A child’s first visit should be enjoyable.

For our youngest patients (12-24 mo) the focus of each visit is to allow them to become more familiar with the dental office. As their comfort increases, we change from from having a quick look in their mouth to introducing a prophy polish and cleaning. The focus remains on education with the hope of establishing good oral hygiene habits for the future. If dental decay is detected, we will discuss with the parents treatment options including referral to a pediatric dentist.


The vast majority of patients that we see in the office tell us that they don’t mind the dental procedures, but they hate needles. We understand this. At Admirals Walk Dental, we take every possible step to ensure the comfort of our patients. Prior to the injection, a numbing gel (topical anesthetic) is placed on the gum tissue to decrease the pinch felt during the injection. The local anesthetic is gently delivered at the injection site. The dentist or hygienist will then leave the patient to relax for 5–10 mins as the numbing sets in. If at any point during the procedure the patient is uncomfortable, the dentist will immediately stop and administer additional local anesthetic.

Crown & Bridge

When patients select either a crown or a bridge as a restorative option, they can plan for at least two visits for completion of treatment. On the first visit, the tooth (or teeth if it is a bridge or multiple crowns) is prepared for the crown and a detailed impression of the tooth is taken. The patient will then have a temporary crown placed on the tooth. The dental impression is then sent to a dental laboratory where the crown is fabricated. On some occasions, we will recommend that the patient visits the dental laboratory for custom shading to ensure the crown will match the other teeth and look as natural as possible. The second visit to our office will involve removing the temporary crown and cementing the crown from the dental laboratory.

Root Canals

For most patients, hearing the words “root canal” immediately causes concern and worry. The majority of times that a tooth requires root canal therapy, the tooth has already been causing the patient some discomfort. This can be pain on biting, increased sensitivity to hot and cold and the tooth aching during the night. When a patient comes to Admirals Walk Dental with this type of pain, our immediate concern is to get the patient out of pain. From the patient’s perspective, root canal therapy is very similar to a filling, it just takes a bit longer. Just like a filling appointment- Dr. Nelson will move the chair back, make the tooth numb, place a rubber dam and perform the procedure. Depending on the degree of infection, a root canal appointment may take more then one office visit.


Occasionally Dr. Nelson will recommend that a tooth should be extracted. The majority of times it is because the tooth is unrestoreable- acute dental abscess, root decay, root fracture, etc. Sometimes tooth extraction is recommended for Orthodontic reasons or to prevent future complications- wisdom teeth.


If you lose tooth structure from dental decay, cavities, fractured cusps, abrasion of acid erosion, you will require dental treatment to “restore” your tooth. At Admirals Walk Dental, Dr. Nelson and staff will take the time to explain what has caused the problem with your tooth and how it can be fixed. Restorative options typically include fillings, inlays, onlays or full coverage dental crowns. The staff at Admirals Walk Dental will help you determine which is restorative option is best for you.


Loss of a tooth or teeth can be quite difficult for a patient to accept and usually they want to have the tooth replaced. One option that may be recommended is a dental implant, depending on several factors such as the area being restored and the quality of bone at the site. At Admirals Walk Dental, we evaluate and discuss all the options for restoring loss of teeth, including dental implants. If a dental implant is selected as treatment, we will refer to a local specialist office for the surgical placement of the implant. When the surgical site has healed, the implant can be restored with a crown at Admirals Walk Dental.

Dentures/Partial Dentures

For some of our patients, they will select a denture or partial denture to replace numerous missing teeth.  Dr. Nelson will discuss the different options with our patients and help make decisions like whether a new denture is needed or a reline is a better option.
