Our hygienists will help you keep your teeth healthy and strong
We use lasers for more effective and comfortable cleanings
Rancho San Diego Dental is your home for leading-edge dentistry. We have nine dental lasers, which is more lasers than any other dental practice in San Diego County. In fact, we have every single laser used in dentistry today. Our state-of-the-art lasers allow us to offer more efficient and comfortable deep cleaning.
Laser procedures usually require no anesthetic, tend to involve less bleeding, lower risk of infection and enable patients to heal sooner than with conventional methods. Often, patients who thought their only option was painful gum surgery have been amazed by laser-assisted surgical gum care.
Gentle, thorough Cleanings
Gum disease is the #1 cause of adult tooth loss in the United States. So arguably the most important visits you may ever make to the dentist are routine dental cleanings. Teeth cleaning is the first step in the prevention of gum disease and the foundation for good oral health. Our well-trained, experienced hygienists use advanced lasers that gently remove stains and heavy tartar.
Each of our hygienists takes the time to teach patients with questions how to brush and floss correctly. They’ll show you pictures of your own mouth taken with our intraoral camera so you can see the target areas for cleaning.
Our hygienists are gentle in their cleaning, although thorough. One of their tools is the ultrasonic scaler. They use it on a case-by-case basis for heavy stain, heavy calcium deposits, for when the patient has inflamed gums and for orthodontic patients.
Severe Gum Disease Treatment
Severe gum disease, or Periodontitis, is treated by our resident Periodontist and partner in the practice.
He focuses on minimally invasive treatment and has helped many patients overcome even the most aggressive gum disease without the use of surgery.
