at Dental Associates of Corona are comprised of a diverse dental team. This includes specialists that allow us to offer our patients truly comprehensive services. Under the same roof, you may receive general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, restorative dentistry, orthodontics, oral and maxillofacial surgery, endodontics, and even pediatric services. If you aren’t familiar with all of these terms, let’s just say that whatever your dental needs, we most likely have you covered.
We treat entire families at our practice; even the youngest members. Babies should begin a regular preventive dental routine as soon as they erupt their first teeth. The treatment of dental issues specific to a young child’s mouth is called pediatric dentistry. Not only do our pediatric specialists know how to treat dental issues in toddlers and children, but they are great at ensuring the comfort of your child throughout every appointment.
You may be more familiar with the term “root canal” as opposed to endodontics. When nerve filled dental pulp becomes infected from cavities which have not been treated, your root canals are a casualty. They will need to be cleaned up, disinfected, and reshaped. Endodontists are experts in root canal procedures. They can also treat any periapical issues. This is the area of your dental anatomy which is located at the tip of your tooth roots.
Many dentists now offer Invisalign invisible braces. We can provide you with the Invisalign treatment as well, but we also have trained orthodontists on staff who can provide you with a wide variety of braces. Our orthodontists can correct problems with teeth and bite alignment with traditional, lingual, clear, and six month braces, or even just retainers. A consultation will tell the tale of the best orthodontic plan for you.
Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
Sometimes, orthodontics might also require oral surgery before or after treatment. Other reasons for oral/maxillofacial surgery include extraction of teeth (most commonly wisdom teeth) placement of dental implants, correction of misaligned jaws, lingual and maxillary frenectomies (for tied tongues or gapped teeth) and of course a wide range of cosmetic surgery options that fall under the realm of a different specialty.
