The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) recommends that all children should have an evaluation with an orthodontist by the age of 7, regardless of how many teeth have erupted.

This is because orthodontists are able to predict any structural changes that may occur as your child gets older. Addressing such structural changes with braces can save your child’s smile and also prevent any additional dental issues down the road.

Adults Use Orthodontics As Well

Types of Orthodontics:

  • Traditional Metal Braces
    These are the most common form of braces. They are highly efficient at correcting complications with a smile.
  • Invisalign®
    They are clear in color, removable, and can work as effectively as traditional metal braces. They are removable and easy to manage in terms of maintenance, brushing, and flossing.

Dental Crowns in Los Angeles

A tooth that is broken, damaged, or in general poor condition can be harmful to your health. It can also affect your feeling comfortable about your teeth and your self-confidence.

Dental crowns are almost exactly the way they sound — a crown, or cap, for your tooth. Dental crowns help restore a tooth — resulting in a truly aesthetically pleasing appearance.

Here are some of the reasons you need a dental crown:

  • Tooth that is broken or fractured
  • Decayed teeth
  • Cosmetic benefits
  • Large or fractured fillings
  • Root canal

Restore Your Smile Today

Crowns also replace severe cases of tooth decay that have resulted in a large amount of tooth loss. Crowns allow dentists to restore form and function to your teeth without needing to perform an extraction. It is always best to save as much real tooth/enamel as possible.

The Dental Crown Placement Process

This process begins with a consult and exam, where we develop a plan for you. We take dental impressions to ensure a precise fit for your tooth. We also treat and resolve any decay or infection prior to placement of the crown.

Once the impressions are ready for your teeth, we place the crown for a proper fit. Once your crown is fitted appropriately, you can again be confident about your dental health and your amazing smile.


Dental Implants in Los Angeles

If you have a missing tooth, and it is impacting your comfort or your confidence, a dental implant could be your solution.

Dental implants have had a considerable impact on modern dentistry — offering a highly viable solution to replacing missing teeth. A dental implant is essentially an artificial tooth that is placed, or implanted, into your jaw, where a dental crown is then capped on for a complete tooth that looks and even feels like a real tooth. The best part is that the new replacement tooth will function as seamlessly as your regular tooth.

Dental Implants Can Replace:

  • A single tooth
  • Multiple teeth
  • All of your teeth (implant dentures)

Dental Implants Benefit You By:

  • Preventing the potential of Perio disease that could be caused by continuous bone loss
  • Preserving bone and stability for your teeth
  • Enhancing the appearance of your smile

Dental Fillings in Los Angeles

Dental fillings are a common procedure used to treat cavities or tooth decay. Fillings are used in order to prevent minor decay from rapidly spreading bacteria into the tooth’s pulp.

You may need a filling for any of the following reasons:

  • You have chipped teeth
  • There is space between two teeth
  • Cracked/broken teeth
  • Decayed or worn teeth

The Procedure

The procedure itself takes up to an hour, which makes it relatively quick. Local anesthesia is applied to numb the area so that you are comfortable throughout the process. The filling is placed specifically to the shape and function of your tooth.

Root Canal in Los Angeles

A root canal is a procedure specifically designed to save you from losing a tooth. Our teeth are comprised of certain parts, one of them being the pulp. A tooth’s pulp is where the nerve, blood vessels, and connective tissue are housed. When this area becomes inflamed or infected, then a root canal procedure must be taken in order to save that tooth from falling right out of your mouth.

How Do I Know if I Might Need a Root Canal?

When your pulp becomes inflamed or infected, you will begin to feel symptoms that prompt you to take action.

  • Toothache
    These are pretty common, but certain toothaches point to the possibility of an inflamed/infected pulp. If you experience sharp pain in the middle of the night that leads to a generalized headache, then your tooth’s root may be suffering.
  • Abscess
    If you see a bump near the top part of a tooth and/or pus present in the mouth, then there is a good chance a root canal will be required.
  • Sensitivity
    Extreme pain from hot and cold foods is a good indicator.
  • Discoloration
    Dark discoloration on the tooth points to a deteriorated pulp. This is a severe sign.

Don’t Wait

If you notice a recurring pain that doesn’t seem to halt, then contact our dentist immediately. It is always better to save a tooth than to have it extracted and replaced.


The Procedure

Root canals are often a two-appointment procedure, with the first appointment taking up to an hour to perform. The second appointment is for a dental crown, since most of your tooth with be lost during the process and must be capped with a crown to restore its appearance.
