Meet Dr. Timothy K. Johnston

WHAT HIS PATIENTS ARE SAYING…

“I was a kid who hated going to the dentist, and eventually grew up into an ‘OK, I’ll go as a last resort’ kind of guy. But now I refer to my visits as my quality time with Dr. Tim.” Learn more about Dr. Tim > 

Norge Dental Center firmly believes, “If you’re healthy, your mouth knows it.” This means regular cleanings and checkups are about more than simply preventing cavities and root canals—it’s about your overall well-being and health, emotional and physical.

Preventative dentistry may actually head off heart attack, stroke, and diabetes— even catching oral cancer and osteoporosis early, before problems arise.

Apart from the individual services we offer in general and preventative dentistry, every checkup includes a complete periodontal evaluation.

General and Preventative Dentistry Procedures


Checkups and Cleanings

Whether it’s been a while since your last checkup or you are worried about a tooth, our patients in the Williamsburg, Virginia, area come to us because we put their comfort first.

To ensure your mouth is healthy, checkups include face time with your dentist, digital X-rays when needed, a complete periodontal assessment, oral cancer screening, and a bite and jaw movement evaluation. During the checkup, if we find decay, broken fillings, or fractures, your dentist will recommend a treatment plan, and you can discuss possible next steps together.


Fillings and Crowns

New patients looking to update dental work such as fillings and crowns can rest easy knowing Norge Dental Center uses only contemporary and aesthetically pleasing materials.

We replace metal crowns with porcelain restorations using virtually wear-proof material that matches your tooth color. All work comes with a 5-year guarantee, and 99.4% of our patients would refer their friends and family. 


Root Canals

No one likes getting root canals. We get it, which is why we’re so invested in the physical and emotional comfort of our patients. Our team of friendly nurses will be at the ready to make your procedure stress-free. Root canals are necessary when the diseased or damaged nerve—or tooth pulp—is removed so that the tooth can be saved or restored. To complete the procedure, your dentist will recommend a dental crown.


Dentures and Dental Implants

Visitors and first-time patients with dentures often turn to Norge Dental Center when their usual dentist isn’t available—and then they come back for everything else.

Dental implants provide a comfortable, precise fit when used with partial or full dentures. You also have the option of not combining your dentures with dental implants. However, the benefits of dental implants are numerous:

  • You will have improved retention, especially with lower dentures.
  • You won’t have food or diet restrictions.
  • They help improve your bone and gum health.
  • They’re comfortable to wear without use of an adhesive, or risk of slipping.
  • They offer a natural look and feel.

When you receive dental implants, as few as four may be needed to secure the denture in place, improving the success rate of the denture. 


Sleep Apnea

Snoring is usually harmless and annoying, but you may have sleep apnea. After you’ve talked to your primary care physician and received a complete medical assessment, Norge Dental Center will help fit you with the right oral appliance for you.

You don’t need a ton of equipment to manage sleep apnea. Many people with mild to moderate sleep apnea find relief with an oral apnea appliance, eliminating the cumbersome CPAP machine.

Once your primary care physician has given you a referral, our dental team conducts a thorough evaluation and walks you through the options. We fit you with the right oral appliance—one you can wear comfortably.

Follow up with your physician afterward so they can check your progress. Then see us twice a year so we can confirm the integrity of your appliance.


Gum Disease

Norge Dental Center is here to make sure your gums are in perfect health, whether you’re only in for a checkup or your gums are giving you a problem. Should we find any issues with your gums, we’ll talk to you about possible steps and treatments. A problem like gum disease can be treated by being proactive.

Gum disease is reversible in its early stages. You can keep gum disease from becoming a problem by brushing, flossing, and seeing your dentist regularly.
