Gentle ultramodern dentistry for the whole family
Rancho San Diego Dental will provide you and all your family members ages three-and-up with optimum-quality dentistry using the latest equipment and the gentlest techniques.
All of our doctors are experienced in leading-edge, minimally-invasive procedures that can gently give you and your family healthy, beautiful smiles.
Minimally invasive and no-shot dentistry for kids
Going to the dentist should be a pleasant experience for kids of all ages. That’s why we perform laser treatments which do not require any anesthesia or shots. Lasers can also be used to remove decay in a comfortable, minimally invasive way. Often no numbing is needed to do a filling. This is a big hit with the kids, as well as with our adult patients.
And with our revolutionary Waterlase laser we can perform children’s root canal procedures less painfully, quicker and better than with ordinary treatment methods. Healing is rapid and there is considerable reduced bruising and swelling when compared to conventional root canal therapy.
We also use a gentle computerized non-syringe anesthesia system called The Wand, so that your child won’t be frightened by a scary looking needle. The computer controls the comfort level and degree of numbness so only the needed amount is delivered, and the numbness will wear off before your child leaves the office.
Air abrasion is a high-tech dental technique that may be used instead of dental drills to remove small amounts of tooth decay. It uses a drill-less tool to clean away decay or even remove portions of a tooth. This drill-less tool is powered by compressed air pressure, which blasts the small particles against the tooth surface. These particles remove the area of decay in your child’s tooth, allowing us to fill the cavity.
DIAGNOdent laser cavity detection
DIAGNOdent uses a precise laser scanning system to scan over all of your child’s teeth to measure the fluorescence within each tooth’s structure. This lets us identify where there may be cavities developing in the small spaces between, on, and around your child’s teeth.
Your child’s first visit
We enjoy treating the entire family and have helped children of all ages to feel comfortable and relaxed while getting their dental care. Starting at age three we like to have children come in with a parent, sit on your lap, and watch as you get your own teeth cleaned. This way, they’ll see dentistry isn’t anything to be scared of.
Then we’ll give your child a tour of the office so they can become familiar with our practice. We want your child’s first visit to be a fun, rewarding experience so that they’ll never be afraid of the dentist.
