    Services

    Mt Baldy Dental Center is a full service dental practice

    Periodontal care

    Periodontal (gum) disease is a common problem that endangers teeth, causes bad breath, and destroys the tooth-supporting tissues in the mouth. It is now understood that this condition is also linked to serious systemic problems such as diabetes, heart disease, stroke, coronary artery disease, and more. Some of the services we provide related to periodontal disease include:

    •Thorough and careful diagnosis

    •Scaling and root planning (root debridement therapy or deep cleaning)

    •Regular maintenance appointments

    •Soft tissue grafts in areas of gingival recession

    •Referral to a specialist (Periodontist) when appropriate

    Fillings

    Once dental decay penetrates a tooth’s enamel, it reaches a softer layer of tooth structure called dentin. Cavities can progress rapidly through dentin toward the nerve of the tooth, so it is very important to remove all decay and place a filling before this occurs.

    •We place only composite resin (tooth-colored) fillings

    •This is a durable and attractive material which is bonded in place and light-cured

    •We use advanced placement techniques to ensure that all tooth decay is removed and to avoid sensitivity that sometimes occurs with new fillings

    •We do not place silver/mercury fillings

    Extractions

    When a tooth becomes infected or broken to the point that it is not fixable it should be extracted. We offer a variety of oral surgical options if you need to have a tooth pulled:

    • Simple and surgical tooth extractions
    • Advanced anesthetics to provide adequate anesthesia
    • Conservative extraction techniques to make the procedure more comfortable and preserve as much bone as possible
    • Socket preserving bone grafts at the time of extraction. A socket preservation graft is very important for conserving bone for the support of a dental implant or other dental appliance.

     

    Cracked or fractured teeth, teeth which have large cavities or defective fillings, and root-canaled teeth often need crowns for protection and improved appearance.
    • We offer both esthetic porcelain and noble metal crowns depending on your preferences and needs
    • All of our crowns are made in American dental laboratories with certified high quality, bio-compatible materials and the best custom workmanship
    • We use durable, advanced cements to bond crowns securely into place
    A bridge is a dental prosthesis which is used to replace one or more missing teeth. Bridges are made of porcelain and usually have a metal substructure for strength.
    They are permanent, cemented prosthetic pieces which restore missing teeth to proper form, function and appearance.
    Cavities which penetrate dentin and reach the nerve chamber of a tooth can cause extreme pain, inflammation, and aggressive infection. Some of the techniques and materials we use:
    • Digital x-rays for improved imaging, lower levels of exposure to x-rays, and a faster procedure
    • Rotary Instrumentation for faster and more complete cleaning of canals
    • Advanced anesthetics to provide adequate anesthesia
    • Advanced antiseptic techniques to ensure that the root canals we perform are thorough and effective.
    • If we are not confident that we can provide you with an outstanding result, we will refer you to a root canal specialist who can.
    Dental implants are one of the most promising and exciting advances in modern dentistry. An implant is a small titanium screw which is placed in the jawbone in the location of a missing tooth.
    The implant is then used to support an individual crown or a denture. We place both denture-supporting and individual implants We also offer bone grafting services to augment the jawbone when necessary to support a dental implant
