Our dynamic and holistic approach to dental care is based on prevention. With thorough preventative strategies, we aim to reduce the extent of treatment or oral health needs our patients experience throughout their lifetimes.
Comprehensive Dental Care
We believe a beautiful smile begins with the right communication and a commitment to dental health. Each visit to our office starts with a conversation about you. We want to know about any changes in your health, needs for care and desires for improvement.
Our dental cleanings and exams are typically recommended every six months or more often if you are currently struggling with gum disease. A general dental cleaning of a mouth in good health includes a thorough cleaning and exam with appropriate x-rays, oral cancer screening, evaluation of your bite and integrity of your smile, and time to discuss any issues you may be experiencing with our dentists.
In the even treatment is needed, we are a mercury free dental office. Conservative no-drill, no-shot fillings match your smile and preserve the most tooth structure possible. Thanks to dynamic laser technology, we can treat cavities while they’re smaller, before they spread deeper into your enamel or adjacent teeth.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Oral cancer is a dangerous disease, it can easily creep up unexpectedly without major symptoms. The best way to ensure a successful recovery is to diagnose the disease as early as possible. Thanks to superior diagnostic techniques like the VELScope oral cancer screening kit, it’s possible. VELScope pinpoints irregular tissues before they’re visible to the naked eye, allowing us to perform an earlier biopsy and potentially save your life.
Periodontal & Gum Disease Treatment
A healthy smile is a beautiful smile. If you are suffering from any form of gum disease it is our goal to get your teeth and gums back to healthy. Treatment can range from a simple professional dental cleaning from our caring and gentle staff, all the way to more progressive treatments such as scaling and root planing, to periodontal surgery. Whatever your treatment may entail, it's important to remember that gum disease will not go away on its own and can lead to severe tooth loss when not managed.
For some, the thought of dental visits causes fear and anxiety. Whether because of previous trauma, significant needs, or other reasons, some patients prefer to utilize care options that allow them to relax and even nap through their dental treatment. Sedation dentists, Dr. Vo has the knowledge and expertise to help you remain comfortable throughout the treatment process so your needs for health and care can be met.
Sleep apnea is a sleeping disorder that interrupts your breathing while you are asleep. If you or your significant other snores loudly, are fatigued once you wake up, have constant or recurring headaches, sleep apnea may be the culprit. Don't fret though! Dr. Vo can help you overcome your sleepless nights with a comfortable dental sleep device that keeps your airways open while you sleep.
