Orthodontic treatment involves the design and use of corrective appliances (such as braces, plates, headgears and functional appliances) to bring the teeth and jaws into proper alignment We offer various treatment options ranging from traditional metal braces and clear (ceramic) braces. We understand that orthodontic treatment is a big adjustment for you and we are passionate about providing the most aesthetic treatment. Orthodontics is not just for teenagers anymore. Adults of all ages are now considering orthodontic movement of their natural teeth, and no longer need to be self-conscious when they smile. For some it may even mean fewer veneers or crowns if the teeth are straightened first! Children are advised to have their first orthodontic “check-up” from age 7, however most do not require treatment until after losing all of their primary or baby teeth.
Dental Implants
Dental_ImplantsDental implants involve the replacement of the roots of a tooth. Once surgically placed, they are not visible since they are secured in the jawbone. Usually, dental implants are used to secure crowns, bridgework or denture. Dental implant procedure has changed dentistry for many years now. This is due to the fact that it has not only evolved from scientific research and discovery, but also, by practical application in clinical practice.

Composition of Dental Implants

Dental implants are made of titanium due to its light weight property. It is also known of its strong properties and is bio-compatible, meaning; it cannot be rejected by the body. The special property of fusing to bone is the biological basis for dental implants in titanium.

The Dental Implants Procedure

The procedure for dental implant is carried out in three stages:

  • First, the dentist will surgically place the implant into the jawbone. He will then recommend a diet of soft foods, cold foods and warm soup during the healing process.
  • The next stage, the bone around the implant heals through a process called osseintegration. This makes the implant so strong because the bone actually grows around the implant and holds it in place. Some patients will be required to wait for several months before the implant can be completely integrated. Other patients will have the implants and replacement teeth placed all in one visit.
  • The final stage is the time for placement of the artificial teeth. For every tooth implant, the dentist will customize a new tooth, what is known as a dental crown. The crown is usually based on size, shape, color and fit and is designed to blend with your other teeth. In case more than a single tooth is being replaced, custom-made bridges will be designed in order to fit the patient’s mouth and the implants. Since the replacement teeth takes some time to make, dentists usually give temporary crown, bridge or denture to help the patient eat and speak normally until the permanent replacements are ready.

It is recommended that prior consultation is sought from a dentist for anyone interested in dental implants. This is due to the fact that, medical evaluation is necessary before any implant surgery can be performed. For patients in good health, this treatment may be a good option for them. Some conditions and chronic illnesses such as diabetes or leukemia are likely to interfere with the healing process after surgery. Patients with such conditions are not ideal for implants. Use of tobacco can also slow the healing process.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants play a significant role in restoring smile. They also help an individual to chew, eat, talk and maintain a natural appearance. Besides replacing lost teeth, implants help maintain the shape and density of the jawbone. Compared to other repair and restoration methods, dental implants treatments are considered the most reliable, with a long-term successful outcome. For this reason they are perceived more predictable. Dental implants impart individual’s social, psychological and physical well-being.

A veneer is a very thin dental restoration that covers only part of a tooth, mostly the front surface. They are available to mask tooth stains, conceal gaps, or make slightly crooked teeth appear straight.  Almost anyone can be a candidate for veneers, unless you have tooth decay or gum disease, and these issues would have to be addressed first.
Bridges are small rows of replacement teeth used to fill in large gaps. Bridges that look and feel like real teeth.
While crowns may be needed for certain teeth that have cracks or large amounts of decay, they can also be used on teeth for an improved esthetic appearance.  Crowns are dental restorations that completely cover the natural tooth to strengthen, protect, and improve the appearance of the tooth. A variety of materials are available for crowns, such as gold, porcelain, or a combination of materials.  Porcelain crowns offer the most natural-looking results.
Composite Restorations
Composite restorations: are tooth-colored fillings.  Unlike amalgam (silver) fillings,these fillings mimic your natural tooth color and make them virtually invisible and very esthetic.

Losing your teeth will never be an easy thing to face, but it is important to replace missing teeth to prevent further dental problems.

Though nobody enjoys the thought of having teeth pulled, occasionally a tooth can crack, break or become so decayed, diseased or crooked that the only solution left is a tooth extraction.

We consider pulling teeth a last resort, but if it is required, we employ the very latest techniques to keep patients comfortable and make the procedure painless.

A reminder: having a toothache can indicate a problem, and though it doesn’t necessarily lead to tooth extraction, you should have it looked at as soon as possible.

When you have a dental emergency, you don’t have to wait for an appointment. You can simply walk in during our regular hours, and though you may have to wait at busier times, we will see you.

If gingivitis goes untreated, it may progress to periodontitis which is a more advanced stage of gum disease because it affects the underlying bone.  Scaling and root planing is the most common treatment for periodontitis and includes cleaning the teeth above and below the gum line using ultrasonic scaling instruments and hand instruments.  It is a conservative treatment that does not require surgery.  Advanced cases of periodontal disease may require gum surgery if the tissue cannot be repaired with non-surgical treatment alone.
Treatment for gum disease is dependent on the stage of the disease.  Gingivitis is a reversible gum disease that typically shows up as red, puffy gums.  It can be easily treated with a thorough dental cleaning to remove plaque and tartar buildup.  It is important to practice good oral hygiene at home to keep your gums healthy!
Periodontal Dental Care
Healthy gums are an important part of having a healthy mouth. Gum disease is easily treated if detected early.
Preventive Dental Care: Children
Dental care for children is not only about keeping the cavities away, but also about creating a positive and encouraging dental experience for your child.

First Visit Your child’s first visit to dentist should be enjoyable and positive. According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD), children should visit the dentist by their first birthday. Children’s teeth typically begin erupting between 6-12 months of age, and it is important that they receive proper dental care and benefit from proper oral hygiene habits right from the beginning.  Routine cleanings for children are especially important in creating positive self-esteem and lessening anxiety should treatment be needed in the future.

Sealant Tooth sealants are recommended because they seal the deep grooves and pits in your child’s teeth, providing protection against decay from forming in these hard-to-reach areas. Sealants last for several years, but will be monitored at regular checkups.

Comprehensive Care In addition to preventative dental care for children, we also provide comprehensive dental care for children, such as fillings, pulpotomies (root canals on children’s teeth), stainless steel crowns, extractions; child’s dental problems are best prevented by routine cleanings and check-ups.

Like bridges and implants, the secret to good dentures is in the details. Dr. Magallanes will keep you smiling. While dentures certainly bring many life-changing benefits, almost all denture-wearers find that problems do occur. Typically, they become loose and can cause painful sore spots. Maintaining them requires frequent visits for adjustments and may require repeated relines and adhesives. But there’s no reason to suffer from these denture troubles any longer.  
Endodontic Dental Care
Root canal therapy is often used to save infected or damaged teeth. We use modern technology to provide this procedure with little or no discomfort. If you have a tooth that develops a crack, has a large amount of dental decay, or has received trauma, bacteria can enter the tooth and travel to the pulp, where the nerve of the tooth lies.  If this infection is left untreated, it may lead to an abscess in the jawbone which can cause severe pain and swelling.

Treatment includes removing the infected pulp and thoroughly cleaning the canal inside the root of the tooth.  The root canal is then sealed to protect it from further infection.  Many teeth need a crown placed in order to strengthen the remaining tooth structure.

*Same-day emergency treatment is available!
