Dental implants—despite their technical complexity—remain one of our strongest areas of practice.
In addition to general dentistry, we can help you achieve the smile you have always wanted without the intrusiveness of metal braces. Our 6 Month Smiles program utilizes low-impact clear braces to straighten your teeth without the discomfort and time frames of traditional orthodontics.
Dentures used to represent the end of good eating—relegating patients to a life of soft foods and dull flavor. Today, implant supported dentures allow for smaller apparatus, bigger chewing force, and restored feel and taste when eating your favorite meals. By utilizing implants, the denture can be permanently inserted so you never have to worry about it falling out.
We now know that the triad of bruxism, snoring, and acid reflux is directly linked to sleep apnea—a major threat to overall health. If you are diagnosed with sleep apnea, we can help you beat it by working with your doctor to fabricate an oral sleep appliance. We’ll work alongside your physician to make sure it is adjusted for maximum effect and you are getting the sleep you deserve.
Over the years we have incorporated many of the following methods to help evaluate the health of your mouth:
- CariFree - evaluates acidity levels in the mouth
- OralDNA - determines both the bacteria and genetic risk associated with periodontal disease and heart health
- Somnomed - treats sleep apnea and replaces noisy CPAP machines—which can bring couples back together.
- This comprehensive approach to dentistry will not only help you achieve a higher level of health, it will improve your quality of life—while avoiding costly long term procedures.
Modern materials allow us to perfectly mimic natural tooth structure in both function and aesthetics. This means that virtually everything we do could be considered cosmetic.
From replacing a missing front tooth to upgrading an old faded crown, we listen to your needs to ensure that your dental experience meets or exceeds expectations.

Nitrous oxide, sedation pills, and IV sedation are all available at Capitol Dental. Whether you would like to "take the edge off", achieve a very relaxed state, or go completely to sleep during your appointment, we can accommodate.
Many procedures do not even require sedation these days. Some patients even fall asleep during their cleaning appointments! These seemingly small victories are what sets Capitol Dental apart from our competitors.
Whether it's a small filling, an implant tooth replacement or a whole new smile, your restoration will look, feel and last like the real thing.
Many tooth problems can be prevented or minimized through preventive treatment.
- Small cavities can be reversed and never need a filling
- Cracked teeth can be crowned before they break and require extraction
- Grinding can be identified before teeth are worn down and require expensive reconstruction.

Kenneth G. Baranco, D.D.S.
Having been raised in Caldwell, I have enjoyed living in our beautiful state for many years. I graduated from the University of Washington in 1974, and then served in the Public Health Service. My wife, Wendy and I have been blessed with 9 children and 14 beautiful grandchildren. When I'm not with my family or at Capitol Dental I'm often found at Gold's Gym.
I've seen a lot of changes in dentistry over the years. What really interests me is an emphasis on the health of my patients, and the use of cosmetic procedures to enhance the quality of their lives. I value the relationships I have with our patients and the wonderful team we have here at Capitol Dental.
