If we decide that you are in need of a full crown, We provide Ceramic metal free crowns. You can be comfortable in knowing that your new tooth will be virtually unnoticeable and will flawlessly complement the rest of your smile.
Our temporary restorations will resemble your natural teeth so that you can continue with your daily life without worrying about a missing or incompatible tooth.
Porcelain inlays and onlays are the perfect alternative to large fillings and crowns. Most of the times, a porcelain inlay or onlay can be used to replace cavities or amalgam fillings that affect more than 25% of the tooth and/or damages one of the walls of the tooth.
When a tooth is cracked or has become damaged by decay, trauma or an existing amalgam filling; very often a porcelain onlay is a great treatment option. Unlike a dental crown that requires more removal of tooth for fit, a porcelain onlay is a very conservative procedure saving precious enamel.
Defective fillings, missing teeth, misaligned teeth, and defective crowns/bridges, along with ill-fitting removable full or partial dentures, can change your normal bite and cause you to grind your teeth.
Grinding may not seem like a large problem to you, however if left untreated, it may result in more serious problems down the road (i.e., headaches, jaw, mouth, neck, face, and back pain).
We offer nightguards to patients on a case-by-case basis. They are completely metal-free and are generally made of a hard acrylic material, to prevent tooth wear, chipping and jaw pain.
We recommend nightguards for people who suffer from bruxism (habitual tooth grinding). Please ask us about this non-invasive procedure.
Dentures are a replacement for missing teeth that can be removed and put back into your mouth as you please. Depending on each individual patient’s case, they may receive full or partial dentures. Full dentures are used when all of the natural teeth are removed.
This is when all the teeth are removed and the tissue is given time to heal before the dentures are placed. It could take a few months for the gum tissue to heal completely.
Prior to having your teeth removed, your dentist takes measurements and has dentures fitted for your mouth. After removing the teeth, the dentures are immediately placed in your mouth. The benefit is that you do not have to spend any time without teeth. You will, however, need to have a follow up visit to refit your dentures because the jaw bone will slightly change shape as your mouth heels.
This is another option when not all of your teeth are missing. This acts the same way as a full denture but only the missing teeth retained in the prosthesis.
Our team of dentists, works directly with each patient to design a smile in perfect proportion to your natural facial structure, using a series of sophisticated facial measurements to ensure a natural appearance.
The selected teeth undergo a simple preparation, and natural looking temporaries are placed so that your teeth look and feel normal.
At the next visit, the resin temporaries are replaced with life-like porcelain restorations, bonded to the natural tooth structure. The entire process usually takes no more than two to three visits.
Ozone (O3) is an allotrope of oxygen (O2). An allotrope is a variant of a substance consisting of only one type of atom. Ozone is created by an energetic reaction that results in an oxygen molecule (O2) being split into singlet (O1) oxygen.
A singlet oxygen then combines with a diatomic oxygen (O2) forming ozone (O3). This energetic process is a result of energy produced by sunlight, lightening, ultraviolet light and corona discharge tubes. Our staff of dentists in Tijuana utilizes a corona discharge generator to produce ozone (O3) in two forms, gas and water.
We are able to apply ozone gas and water to the oral cavity and dentition to reduce sensitivity and minimize bacteria. Bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites have little or no antioxidant enzymes in their cell membranes. Without this protection ozone oxidizes the cell membrane causing it to rupture and deplete.
Healthy cells have antioxidant enzymes such as; superoxide dismutase, catalase, glutathione peroxidasse, etc. There are also antioxidants such as vitamin C, vitamin E, etc present in the extracellular matrix fluids, plasma, etc.
These antioxidants protect the healthy cells from being oxidized by ozone. Ozone is negatively charged and seeks to neutralize anything with a positive charge. Typically bacteria and viruses carry positively charged cells, ozone will attach to theses cell membranes and destroy the cell.
At any given time the oral cavity contains up to 20 billion oral microbes. With up to 500 species of bacteria competing for a prime environment for growth and multiplication, it is vital to the long term prognosis of dental health that we minimize as much bacteria as possible. Ozone is the ideal accomplice in conjunction with superior oral care to improve the success of eliminating dental caries (cavities).
Ozone gas is used to treat the periodontal pockets surrounding each tooth. These pockets are natural and require bacterial disruption to maintain and support healthy tissue necessary for retaining the teeth for a long life.
Once the decayed tooth structure is removed through conventional dentistry techniques, ozone gas is applied to the cavity preparation, the ozone will then penetrate the dentin tubules killing bacteria left in the smear layer and surrounding tissues. A dental restoration can now be placed with a higher success rate without adverse post operative acuteness.
Teeth requiring removal from the oral cavity are suffering from one form or another of a dental disease. Many of the surrounding structures and tissues are negatively affected by the disease process and tooth removal. It is important to treat the entirety of the condition to adequately heal. Ozone water delivered to the extraction site supports the body’s natural ability to heal the void and return to normal function.
This simplex symptom plaguing the majority of our population is often treated with fluoridated pastes and mouth rinses. A better understanding of the condition may lead to a quick fix. Exposed dentin is painful when experiencing fluctuation felt by air, water and thermal changes. Inevitably the exposed dentin is now susceptible to the 20 billion microbes roaming the oral cavity, the bacteria present will penetrate the tubules causing an inflammatory response. When ozone gas is slowly filtrated over the area, the bacteria will deplete and re-mineralization will take effect to repair and protect the once exposed dentin tubules. Often relief is noticed with minutes of treatment.
