We use state of the art equipment and the latest techniques in oral care to provide quality and professional dentistry with your comfort in mind. Throughout your procedure, you can use our chair side monitor to view intra-oral images, radiographs, or even a music video for your entertainment. All our instruments are thoroughly scrubbed, bagged in sterile pouches, and sterilized in an Autoclave® Sterilizer. This procedure is repeated after each use. Weekly, our Autoclave is monitored by a certified sterile monitoring service. We use a water control system to ensure only sterile, distilled water is used.
A bridge may be used to replace missing teeth, help maintain the shape of your face, and alleviate stress on your bite. A bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth, looks great, and literally bridges the gap where one or more teeth may have been. Your bridge can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials and is bonded onto surrounding teeth for support. There are two basic types of bridges. A fixed bridge which remains in your mouth at all times and is supported by your natural teeth. Removable bridges (partials and full dentures) are removed from the mouth several times a day for cleaning and rest on the gum where the missing teeth are being replaced.
Your first visit at our office is very important in establishing your oral health baseline. We will perform a complete oral examination which includes an oral cancer screening, periodontal evaluation, an analysis of your occlusion (bite) and a thorough examination of your teeth, their supporting structures and of the oral anatomy.
Our in-office state-of-the-art bleaching system will make your teeth whiter and brighter. You may also use our take home bleaching system to achieve a brighter and whiter smile in a matter of days.
The severity of a toothache can range from chronic and mild to sharp and excruciating. It can be a dull ache or intense. The pain may be aggravated by chewing or by thermal foods and liquids which are cold or hot. A thorough oral examination, proper tooth testing and evaluation, along with appropriate dental x-rays, can help determine the cause. What we want to know is whether the toothache is really coming from a tooth or somewhere else.
"Wonderful! Totally professional and very inviting. The people are absolutely lovely and do great work. I highly recommend this place. I've had regular teeth cleanings, in addition to more substantial work done. They send you reminder texts where you can cancel or reschedule via text. It's super convenient."
"I broke a tooth on Oct. 31 and called Las Americas Dental office to see if they could fit me into the schedule. They were able to see me the very next day. I didn't have to wait in the office and they were more than generous with the time to take care of me. I appreciate their expert care and generosity. Thank you."
