Dental cleanings performed by our dental hygienists are a form of preventative maintenance for your teeth. Along with semi-annual checkups, regular dental cleanings are essential to good oral health.
Some teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed or non restorable, others may have advanced periodontal disease, or have broken in a way that cannot be repaired. Other teeth may need removal because they are poorly positioned in the mouth, or in preparation for orthodontic treatment.
The removal of a single tooth can impair your chewing ability, and shifting teeth, which can have a major impact on your dental health. Our dentists will discuss alternatives to extractions as well replacement of the extracted tooth.

Fillings have been a common service provided to patients for many decades and they do their job well. However, sometimes a different treatment may be needed to treat deeper or wider decay: Porcelain inlays and onlays can fill in cavities or and restore the structure of your tooth in a way that looks completely natural.
Dentures (Full & Partial)
Dentures are artificial replacements for missing teeth that can be removed from your mouth. Today’s dentures are natural looking and more comfortable than ever.
There are two main types of dentures:
– Full Denture (or complete)
– Partial Denture
– Full Denture (or complete)
– Partial Denture
You can use full or partial dentures to cover the partial or total lack of teeth. If you’ve lost all or part of your natural teeth from a dental disease or accident, dentures can replace your missing teeth and your smile, and can last up to ten years.
There are different factors that may contribute to erosion, cracking and breaking of your teeth, such as age, fillings or tooth decay. We are pleased to offer our patients CEREC restoration services, a superior method of creating precisely-designed, color-matched, and highly durable ceramic restorations right in our practice. From simple fillings to full crowns to veneers, CEREC delivers the results you need in a single appointment.
Root Canal Treatment
Root canal treatment is an attempt to save the patient’s tooth. Our dentists treats the inner aspects of the tooth and can help save your teeth from extraction.
A bridge, also known as a fixed partial denture, is generally attached to two teeth on each side of the missing tooth. They are most commonly used to replace one or more missing teeth. Bridges can be permanent or removable. If a patient has missing teeth, this can cause several problems that bridges can help prevent, such as a bad bite, gum disease, and tooth decay. Also, bridges can improve your smile, giving you a beautiful appearance that can last up to ten years or more with the correct care.
The Maryland Bridge replaces mostly single tooth compared to other conventional bridgework. The restoration enables the dental practitioner to splint or replace the missing teeth, with minimal tooth modification.
The practitioner will review each patient case and recommend the necessary bridgework.
Botox® for TMJ Treatment (Therapeutic)
Symptoms of Tempormanidibular (TMJ)?
If you suffer symptoms such as headaches, shoulder and neck pain, even ringing in the ears may be caused by problems associated with Tempormanidibular joint (TMJ).
Why treat TMJ with Therapeutic Botox…?
Patients suffering from TMJ can ease their symptoms with Botox® treatment which relaxes muscles in the jaw that causes some of the common symptoms. If untreated, patients may clench and grind their teeth which damages the jaw joints, teeth, and gums.
If you are not sure of your symptoms please call (818) 240-1760 to make an appointment for consultation and a check up.
The hygienist or dentist uses tools to remove tartar from your teeth where the gum meets the tooth. Your dentist or hygienist will give you tips on proper brushing and flossing.
Your oral health depends on two factors: your willingness to brush and floss regularly and your commitment to seeing your dentist every six months for an oral exam and professional teeth cleaning.
A deep cleaning may be recommended if excessive plaque and tartar deposits have developed below the gum line. Deep cleanings, also known as scaling and root planing, involve a two-part process: first, the stubborn deposits are removed, and then the root surfaces are smoothed over.
A deep cleaning helps prevent periodontal disease and restores gum tissues to a healthy state.
It is often natural for teeth to want to move back to their original position following orthodontic dentistry or Invisalign treatment. Retainers provide a great solution to maintain your smile and protect your investment.
