Expert General Dentistry in Los Angeles
Preventing cavities and periodontal disease starts with teaching how to properly floss and brush, including the techniques and frequency, as well as the use of the right high-grade mouthwash, for a personalized program.
Maintaining good oral health is not as easy as many thinks, due to inherited dental problems such as crooked teeth, poor cleaning practices, and misconceptions about what is necessary to prevent complications that can become big challenges to fix.
This needs to be coupled with having a professional cleaning done at least twice a year with advanced tools that can remove the accumulation of material on the teeth that brushing is not sufficient to completely eliminate.
It’s never too early for children to learn good dental care—and never too late for adults to improve their habits.
In the event you may need a root canal done (to clean out the decay and try to save a tooth) or a decayed tooth extracted, we can provide a choice of anesthetics to make the process painless and a variety of materials for fillings.
Cosmetic enhancements that a general dental practice can provide include whitening that can remove up to eight shades in one hour and as many as 15 shades. Other popular cosmetic treatments such as bonding, bridges, sealants, veneers, crowns, inlays and overlays, and straightening teeth without visible braces can also improve oral health.
These can address such issues as:
- Crooked, cracked, or worn teeth.
- Gaps and uneven spacing.
- Crooked smiles.
- Smiles that show too much gum.
- Teeth that are too long or too short.
