New Patient Exam

We are currently accepting new patients! Call us at 209-823-9218 to schedule an appointment. During your initial exam, we will provide you with a routine check-up to determine if there are any developing dental or oral health problems that need to be addressed. We will evaluate your face and neck for abnormalities, as well as the inside of your mouth for symptoms of oral cancer, ulcers, or other issues. Then, we examine the gums and jawbone to check for periodontal disease and bone disease. Finally, we evaluate the teeth for signs of decay or other issues. After the visual exam, we will take x-rays to determine if there are any hidden issues in the teeth, gums, and jawbone.

Dental Hygiene

It is essential to properly care for your teeth at home – visiting the dentist twice a year for exams is not enough. We recommend brushing your teeth thoroughly at least twice a day and flossing at least once a day. During your exams and cleanings, we will offer advice as to how you can improve your at-home oral hygiene regimen and give you tips for proper brushing and flossing.

Periodontal Care

Periodontitis is a disease of the gums and surrounding tooth structures. Many patients don’t realize they have it until the infection is severe. But left untreated, it can lead to tooth loss.

Gum disease is caused by bacteria in the mouth. This bacteria creates plaque, which eventually develops into tartar. Tartar forms around and beneath the gum line, causing inflammation that creates periodontal pockets, which collect even more bacteria. Besides tooth loss, this condition can also lead to deterioration of the jawbone. But gum disease doesn’t just affect your mouth. The bacteria can also lead to other health complications, such as heart disease and strokes.

Our team offers periodontal care. With regular cleanings, we can catch gum disease at its earliest stages, offering treatment that keeps bacteria at bay. Scaling and root planing is a procedure that involves cleaning deep beneath the gum line to remove bacteria and smoothing out the tooth roots so the gums can adhere securely and block out further infection. You may also require antibiotics. More severe cases may require surgery to restore oral health. Dr. Tran will work with you to help you preserve your gums and your smile.

Sedation Dentistry

Dr. Tran specializes in offering oral sedation. This option comes in the form of a pill, which allows patients to enter a deeply relaxed state while remaining conscious. Oral sedation is a safe option for patients who have dental anxiety or who require more extensive treatment, such as oral surgery. We will discuss your options with you to determine if oral sedation is right for you.

Laser Dentistry

Lasers are highly effective for many different dental treatments. As compared to drills, lasers create a more comfortable experience for the patient, increasing precision and reducing downtime, bleeding, and swelling. Laser dentistry is minimally invasive, reduces the risk of infection, doesn’t harm the surrounding teeth, and reduces the need for anesthesia and numbing agents.

Laser dentistry can be used for:

— Activating whitening gels
— Detecting cavities
— Certain dental fillings
— Crown lengthening
— Reducing tooth sensitivity
— Reducing of inflammation associated with TMD
— Removing soft tissue
— Reshaping the gums

E4D Same-Day Crowns

Creating impressions, milling a crown, and placing the crown used to take several visits to the dentist. Not any more! E4D allows our team to mill and place custom crowns in just one visit. E4D uses CAD/CAM technology to take digital impressions of your smile. Then, Dr. Tran designs your custom restoration, and the E4D machine mills it. Then, Dr. Tran can place the custom restoration, which will be designed to seamlessly match your smile and fit perfectly. The entire process takes just about one hour!
