General Dental Services in Claremont, CA

General dentistry is vital to your overall health. Taking good care of your teeth and gums will contribute to a healthy lifestyle. We offer a full range of dental services in-house for every stage of oral development. Learn more our general dental care services:

Drill-free Dental Fillings

The drill-free dental fillings procedure is an innovative way to fix cavities in teeth. This procedure is a less invasive and more comfortable alternative to the traditional dental fillings procedure. The procedure is a more natural way to fix cavities than traditional methods because it does not require drilling into the tooth. Instead, the dentist removes a small amount of tooth enamel using an ultrasonic scaler. Then he injects a special putty material into the cavity, which hardens and fills it up. To learn more about dental fillings and replacing metal fillings, see Dental Fillings.

Emergency Dentistry

Emergency dentistry is a field that deals with the treatment of dental emergencies. Our emergency dental services help our patients find relief from sudden pain or discomfort, or who require urgent dental care. Some dental emergencies include: severe toothaches, dental trauma, Bruxism (teeth grinding), and contracture of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) or jaw joints. If you are having a dental emergency, please contact our office as soon as possible to receive further instruction. To learn more about what to do in a dental emergency, see Emergency Dentistry.

Laser Dentistry

Modern dentists use dental lasers to provide more comfortable and accurate results than ever before. This means that patients can undergo procedures without any discomfort, and dentists can work with more precision. Lasers also mean a reduced need for anesthesia, which is a plus for those with allergies or who have a fear of needles. Claremont Dental Institute uses the Solea® laser on hard and soft tissues within the mouth. With this dental technology, we can treat many dental concerns. To learn more about the treatments we offer with laser dentistry, see Laser Dentistry.

Pediatric Dentistry

Children need special attention when it comes to dental visits. Tooth decay, or dental cavities, are wide spread among children. It is important that parents know how to care for their children’s teeth once they begin to erupt. As soon as your child has teeth, you should be visiting us for regular dental appointments to avoid tooth decay and ensure their oral development is normal. Early intervention is key to long term oral health. Our dentists tailor pediatric dental services to meet the needs of their young patients. To learn more about the services we offer for our young patients, see Pediatric Dentistry.

Sedation Dentistry

Do you have a fear of the dental chair, needles, or anxiety about your overall dental visit experience? We offer one of the most relaxing sedation methods, nitrous oxide (laughing gas). Some of the benefits of using dental sedation are that they help patients reduce anxiety, prevent muscle spasms, and ease pain. Nitrous oxide is safe and wears offs quickly. Patients can enjoy calm, stress-free dental appointments and then drive themselves home from their dental appointment. To learn more about the benefits of nitrous oxide, see Sedation Dentistry.

Preventive Dental Care and Your Oral Health

The American Dental Association recommends that patients as young as 1 visit the dentist twice yearly. Developing a biannual routine from an early age allows the dentist to track the development of the teeth and jaw and provides the opportunity for proactive instead of reactive treatment- often saving patients time and money.

When it comes to your oral health, small dental issues can snowball into more complex dental concerns that require more extensive treatment plans. By taking a proactive approach to your oral health care, we can stay ahead of the development of cavities or gingivitis.

Patients who visit the dentist regularly experience lower rates of tooth decay, gum disease, and tooth loss. Routine dental checkups and professional teeth cleanings help reduce plaque and tartar buildup from forming. Your dentist also screens for signs of periodontal disease, oral cancer, and other dental concerns. We can manage these concerns more easily if caught early.

General dental services combine personal oral hygiene and restorative dentistry to maintain the health and function of your natural smile. Between dentist visits, brush your teeth twice a day and floss at least once daily to enjoy optimal oral health.

Do Not Let Dental Anxiety Keep You From Seeing a Dentist

Patients who avoid the dentist or suffer from dental anxiety experience deterioration of their oral health. They are risking the comfort and appearance of their smile. For many patients, dental anxiety stems from a past experience with other dentists and causes them to skip their routine exams. Patients with dental anxiety can benefit from sedation dentistry and finding the right dentist.
