Dentist Studio City CAWhen you brush your teeth twice a day and floss at least once daily, you are contributing towards good dental health. Once or twice a year visits to our dentist in Studio City CA are a very important part of your oral hygiene.
But you may have dental issues that will arise in between your routine visits that will require professional care. Even an emergency can happen where you would need prompt attention to take care of the situation. Our dentist in Studio City CA has the necessary skills and experience to handle any type of dental problem you may have.
Red, swollen and bleeding gums may be a sign of periodontal disease. If plaque is not effectively removed from the teeth, it will breed bacteria. Infection will then become an issue. A scaling and root planing procedure will clear up gum infection that has not reached the bone. Our dentist in Studio City CA can effectively remove plaque and tartar from your teeth with specially designed instruments and lasers. Oral surgery will also clear up more advanced stages of gum disease that have contacted the bone.
Cosmetic treatments are a way to enhance your teeth when you do not have the type of smile you would like to have. Tooth whitening procedures, porcelain veneers, porcelain crowns and Invisalign aligners are all cosmetic techniques that will enhance your teeth and your smile. White fillings will blend with the color of your teeth and look like a part of the tooth itself.
When a dental extraction has to be done, it may be either simple or surgical. A simple extraction is performed when the tooth is visible above the gum, and surgical extractions are necessary when there is no visible portion of the tooth showing above the gum line.
Restorative procedures include dental implants, partial fixed bridges and full dentures. Our dentist in Studio City CA will expertly fit you with the appropriate dental device for the number of teeth that you are missing.
When teeth and gums are maintained properly, a healthy and beautiful smile will be the result.
