A dental exam is vital to the integrity of your teeth and gums and is one of the best preventive measures of avoiding bigger problems down the road. A dental exam is painless, and precise. We will visually examine all of your teeth and gums, and a CT-Scan along with few digital X-rays will be taken to determine if tooth decay or fractures have occurred and we can also detect possible damaged bone or distressed roots at this time. We also use a carries detector intraoral camera that will show the cavities in a different color so you can see what we see.
Digital Dental X-ray
X-rays are beneficial to any doctor who needs to see what is going on below the surface. Without them, we could not properly diagnose and successfully treat the problem. Today’s digital X-rays emit much less radiation than film-based radiology; in fact, they are 90% safer, and they also provide a much clearer picture. The result is instantaneous and can be immediately saved to a digital file for future reference.
Nothing feels better than that fresh clean feeling only the dental hygienist can give you. Try as you may, you just can’t get your teeth clean like our dental hygienists can. Routine cleaning removes plaque, stains, and tarter from your teeth and will prevent cavities and gum disease from occurring. You will still need to floss each day and brush for two minutes, twice a day, and come see us every six months in order to keep those pearly whites in good shape.
The thought of having a tooth filled is somewhat daunting, but you can take some comfort in knowing that you are not alone: approximately 92% of Americans have had at least one cavity in his or her lifetime. Suffice it to say that dental fillings are pretty much normal for most people and because of this, we have honed this craft to a precision.
Silver fillings can look dated or can be aesthetically unpleasing. If you want to change them out for white fillings, or if you have a cavity and want to opt for a white filling, we are happy to accommodate your needs. White fillings are made from a composite resin and will be matched to the color of your natural teeth. If you are worried about the integrity of the filling, it is important to know that white fillings are strong, stain-resistant and will last just as long as an amalgam filling.
A traditional crown can take multiple visits of up to a few weeks. We offer our patients the option of CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) same-day crown service, whenever possible. A 3-D image is taken of your tooth and with CAD/CAM technology, a beautiful, durable ceramic crown is created in our office so you won’t have to wait or make any return visits. And best of all, the crown will have the same integrity as that of one that’s created in an off-premises lab.
Are you worried about your smile because you are missing a tooth or two? An expertly placed dental implant in our office can make all the difference in the world, and we have everything you need at our Mission Viejo dental office to make you look and feel like a new person. Dental implants can fill in the gaps or even replace severely damaged teeth. Imagine the freedom you will have to be able to eat your favorite foods again. But it goes beyond that—being able to properly chew your food will lead to a healthier digestive system and a happier you!
Dental bridges are a good way to fill in the gaps of missing teeth. To replace missing teeth is more important to your health than many realize. When you have missing teeth, surrounding teeth can begin to shift and will throw off your bite making it difficult to speak clearly or to chew food properly. For these reasons alone, it is vital to your health to ensure your missing teeth are replaced.
If you have been putting off getting dentures because you are not certain whether they will work for you, we can assure you that when we create your dentures, it will be a total game-changer.

Whether you are missing all of your teeth, or missing several, we can fit you with a complete set of dentures or partial fixed or removable ones.
Do you or someone you know have a habit of grinding their teeth? This is not just something that’s annoying; it could signify an underlying health problem, and it can also damage your teeth and jaw bones. Bruxism—the habitual grinding of teeth, especially at night, is something that is easily treated.
