Specialty Services in Durango, CO
Why race across town to dentists you don’t know? We provide comprehensive, specialized dental care in one familiar place.
At Dr. Rothchild’s dental practice, east meets west. For an integrative approach to your treatment, we may use acupuncture as an adjunct to mild sedation, dental anesthesia, pain control, and TMJ pain.
Another alternative therapy and optional adjunct is MPS Therapy (Microcurrent Point Stimulation). This therapy integrates acupuncture, microcurrent therapy, cranial osteopathic techniques, intramuscular stimulation, trigger point treatment, and neural therapy.
Osteopathic health care is the philosophy that the body has mechanisms and substances that, if given the opportunity, will establish balance and recreate health. Restrictions to the harmonious functioning of these processes can cause disease. By relieving these restrictions to proper motion, the body has the ability to restore harmonious function.
Gum recession is the process in which the margin of the gum tissue that surrounds the teeth wears away, or pulls back, exposing more of the tooth, or the tooth’s root. The progression of gum recession can eventually weaken your teeth, causing greater sensitivity, root damage and even tooth loss.
Hospital Dentistry is a service that we can provide for patients that are severely medically compromised or apprehensive or uncontrollable children. This includes children that may have a significant amount of work that needs to be done and special needs children. Mercy Regional Medical Center provides board certified and licensed anesthesiologists that provide the service in the operating room setting. Side effects typically associated with hospital anesthesia are virtually nonexistent.
Mercy Regional provides the billing and fees for the service independent of Dr. Rothchild’s fees.
If you or a family member chronically snores and wakes up extremely tired in the morning, it is possible that they or you are dealing with a sleep disorder known as Sleep Apnea.

He is a member of several professional organizations that specialize in the field of pain management and head and neck pain. He has lectured on the subject throughout the United States and internationally. His approach to treatment is based on the individual.
