General dentistry consists of any procedures in which your dentist diagnoses, treats, and/or manages your overall oral health needs. See below to see what general dentistry services our Thousand Oaks dentist offers:
Zirconia crowns are ceramic crowns known for their incredible strength and durability. Zirconia crowns are often times the preferred crown option due to their ability to withstand large amounts of pressure.
In the event that you have a damaged tooth, crowns may become extremely vital to your oral health. Porcelain crownsare porcelain-based prosthetics which essentially cover your broken teeth to protect them to further damage.
IV Sleep Sedation
IV Sedation is offered to help ease patient discomfort, stress, and anxiety. It is most often used during surgical procedures. It causes patients to become drowsy and experience no pain during a procedure as the dentist works on your teeth.
The benefits of teeth cleaning include plaque removal, fresher breath, and a healthier looking smile. Patients are recommended to schedule their teeth cleaning twice annually as a preventative measure.
The third set of molars, also known as wisdom teeth, can cause patients a lot of pain or potential issues in the gums and/or nearby teeth. Wisdom teeth are infamously known for growing irregularly: they can emerge sideways, only partially, or not at all.
TMJ, or Temporomandibular joint syndrome, is a condition which affects the joints, muscles, and/or nerves which ultimately affect jaw movement. TMJ occurs in some patients due to arthritis, genetics, teeth clenching/grinding, or an injury to the jaw bone.
A root canal is necessary when the soft tissue in the root canal becomes infected or inflamed. Other reasons a patient may need a root canal treatment may include a faulty crown, deep decay or a chipped tooth.
