From dental wellness visits including cleaning, x-rays, and a personalized exam to a wide array of preventative to restorative dental treatments are all a part of our general dentistry services. At Open Wide La Jolla we’ve got you covered!
Our modern dental office in La Jolla, California uses state-of-the-art, advanced technologies to ensure you receive meticulous, quality care at every visit.
We offer the following comprehensive dental services:
Our restorative dental services are all about renewing the health and functionality of your smile. We combine the latest dental technology with our team’s extensive expertise to ensure that your teeth and gums are at their healthiest.
Implant Restorations: Missing a tooth? Our state-of-the-art implant restorations provide a natural-looking, durable replacement that blends seamlessly with your existing teeth. Our dental implant solutions are designed for maximum comfort and functionality, giving you the freedom to smile with confidence.
Periodontal (Gum Disease) Treatment: Healthy gums are just as important as healthy teeth. Our periodontal treatments are tailored to fight gum disease at its source, preventing further complications and promoting overall oral health.
Fillings: We offer safe, durable, and aesthetic dental fillings that restore the health and integrity of your tooth after decay. Our goal is to stop decay in its tracks, prevent further damage, and keep your smile looking its best.
Crowns: If your tooth is damaged or decayed, our high-quality crowns can be the perfect solution. Custom-designed to fit your smile, our dental crowns restore the shape, size, and strength of your tooth, ensuring you can eat, speak, and smile without worry.
Root Canals: With our modern techniques and compassionate approach, root canals are more comfortable than ever. We carefully remove the infected pulp, clean the tooth’s interior, and seal it to prevent future infection—relieving pain and saving your natural tooth.
Bridges: Our dental bridges are a fantastic solution for replacing one or more missing teeth. By filling the gap left by missing teeth, dental bridges restore your smile’s appearance and functionality, enhancing your ability to chew and speak naturally.
Dentures: Whether you’re missing some or all of your teeth, our high-quality dentures can restore your smile and your confidence. Designed for comfort and aesthetic appeal, our dentures make it easier to eat, speak, and smile broadly.
Extractions: While our primary goal is always to save your natural teeth, sometimes an extraction is necessary for your overall oral health. Our experienced dental team ensures that tooth extractions are performed as painlessly as possible, prioritizing your comfort throughout the procedure.
Prevention is the heart of dental care. Our preventative dental services aim to maintain your oral health, catch potential issues early, and keep your smile shining bright. By investing in prevention, you can save yourself from discomfort and extensive treatments in the future.
Oral Exams: Regular oral exams are the cornerstone of a healthy smile. Our comprehensive exams allow us to catch potential issues early, providing personalized advice and treatment plans to keep your oral health on track.
Teeth Cleanings: Professional teeth cleanings are crucial for maintaining a vibrant and healthy smile. Our hygienists carefully remove plaque and tartar buildup, leaving your teeth clean, polished, and ready to shine.
Scaling and Root Planing: This deep-cleaning procedure is designed to combat gum disease by thoroughly removing plaque and tartar from beneath the gum line. Our experienced dental professionals perform scaling and root planing gently and effectively, promoting healthier gums and teeth.
Oral Cancer Screening: Early detection is critical in the battle against oral cancer. Our painless, quick, and non-invasive oral cancer screenings are an integral part of our routine exams. We’re committed to safeguarding your health and wellbeing.
Night Guards: If you grind or clench your teeth while sleeping, our custom-made night guards could be your key to better oral health. They help protect your teeth from damage and reduce symptoms like headaches and jaw pain, ensuring you wake up feeling refreshed and pain-free.
Our range of general dentistry services extends beyond just maintaining your oral health. We also focus on conditions that affect your overall wellbeing. Open Wide’s comprehensive general dentistry services are designed to enhance not only your oral health but also your overall quality of life.
Bruxism and Migraine Treatment: Bruxism, or teeth grinding and clenching, often results in discomfort and migraines. We offer effective treatments to mitigate bruxism and migraines and all associated issues, improving your oral health and reducing associated headaches for a more comfortable life.
Oral Appliance Therapy: If you suffer from sleep apnea or other sleep-related breathing disorders, our oral appliance therapy can provide significant relief. Custom-made to fit comfortably in your mouth, these appliances maintain an open, unobstructed airway while you sleep.
Sleep Apnea Treatment: Sleep apnea affects both your sleep quality and overall health. We offer customized, non-invasive sleep apnea treatment plans, including oral appliance therapy, to manage this condition, ensuring you get a restful night’s sleep.
Snore Appliance Therapy: Do you or your partner snore heavily at night? Our snore appliance therapy can help. By gently shifting the jaw forward, these customized appliances open up the airway, reducing snoring and promoting better sleep.
Frenectomy (Tongue-Tie): A frenectomy is a simple procedure that can significantly improve quality of life for those with tongue-tie, a condition that can interfere with speech, feeding, and oral hygiene. Our team ensures the frenectomy tongue-tie procedure is quick, efficient, and as comfortable as possible.
TMJ Disorder Treatment: If you experience jaw pain, headaches, or difficulty opening and closing your mouth, you could be suffering from TMJ disorder. We provide a range of effective TMJ Disorder Treatments tailored to your specific needs, aiming to alleviate symptoms and improve jaw function.
Regular dental care is critical to your overall health, and our expert team is ready to help you maintain it.
