The Best Dentist Checkup in San Diego

When was the last time you and all the other members of your family had a thorough checkup? If it was sometime within the past 6 months or so, then you could be good for a bit. But, if you had to stop and think about it or don’t even recall, then it’s undoubtedly been too long and seeing a dentist should be at the top of your to-do-list!

Your dental health is highly important and therefore it’s something you should NEVER ignore. Nowadays we know much more than before about the negative effects that poor oral health can have on the rest of your body and overall well-being. That is why it’s so essential to stay on top of it.

Your first step should be to find a reliable and reputable dentist who is nearby, and if you happen to live in the San Diego area, that would be us!

Some general details to consider when you are selecting a new dentist:

Those are SOME of the things you might want to think about when seeking out a primary practice. Please continue reading for additional advice along with insightful information about Irresistible Smiles!

A Dependable Downtown Dental Clinic

Scheduling a routine dental checkup in San Diego can be a pain-free approach to checking out a new practice. After that initial experience, you should know if it’s the ideal place to go for all of your essential oral care. Although it is typically a hygienist who does the teeth cleaning, you can mention that you’d like to meet the doctor for a moment. Especially if they suggest any sort of additional treatment or recommend a return visit!

Here are a few other conditions to critically consider:

  • The Cleanliness/Condition of the Office and Equipment
  • The Attitude/Friendliness of the Team
  • Appointment Availability and Waiting Time/Promptness
  • How Close to Home the Office Is

By following this advice and doing a little bit of light research online, you should be able to learn vital details and determine the dependability of dentists in the local area. Which might actually be what you’re doing right now? Yet, the only way to really know which doctor is the best for you is by verifying it yourself with a visit.

A Caring and Competent Cosmetic Dentist

There are several positive attributes you should look for in a super dentist. For example, you most certainly want to feel completely comfortable with them and their entire team. Furthermore, they need to be both caring and competent while providing quality work. If you have children, confirming that they’re good with kids is also recommended.

On top of this, you also want to find a practice that offers a wide-range of dental services, since you probably don’t know what kind of work you or your family members currently or will eventually require.

At Irresistible Smiles, our doctors definitely know what we’re doing when it comes to cutting-edge cosmetic dentistry. The following are some of the popular procedures our team can perform with professional precision:

  • Smile Makeover
  • Veneers
  • Bonding
  • Caps and Crowns
  • Full Mouth Reconstruction

When done correctly, cosmetic dentistry can dramatically improve your appearance and also ease discomfort caused by/associated with the issue. When we look good, we naturally feel better about ourselves and life inevitably becomes more enjoyable. Who knows, your new smile will might even be contagious?

The Dynamic Dental Implants Periodontist

A Periodontist is a dentist who specializes in a few particularly important areas. More specifically, they handle the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal disease, PLUS the placement of dental implants. Due to the demand for implants nowadays, it is necessary to have such doctors permanently positioned at a practice.

Periodontists are also experts in the treatment of oral inflammation, which recent research has revealed may be connected to other systematic diseases. So, if you have mouth sores and/or pain in your gums, it’s vital that you pay us a visit.

Procedures our Periodontists specialize in performing:

  • Endosteal & Subperiosteal Implants
  • Sinus Repair and Ridge Modification
  • Single Tooth to Full Mouth Replacement

We’ve come quite a long way with dentistry and what we’re able to successfully do. So, whether you need a single tooth replaced, several, or all of them, come on in to see what your options are. In some case we can even get started on the same day if you’d like!

Professional Periodontist Procedures

One of the top assets at any dental practice is a Periodontist. Although everyone on our entire team plays a vital part in caring for patients, this is the doctor who does some of the more difficult and delicate dental work. Because of this, these mouth experts must train extra-intensively before they can get certified and be fully qualified to operate.

In addition to doing Dental Implants, here are a few other procedures that a great Periodontist can capably complete:

  • Gum Graft Surgery
  • Laser Treatment
  • Dental Crown Lengthening
  • Nonsurgical Treatments Including
  • Scaling and Root Planing
  • Tray Delivery Systems
  • Therapy

Furthermore, in order to remain relevant, the Periodontists at our practice are REQUIRED to stay up-to-date on the latest techniques and technologies for their procedures. Therefore, you can smile while knowing that you’re receiving the best treatment that’s currently available anywhere in the world.

They also specialize in diagnosing and effectively dealing with gum disease, which is something we all need to watch out for with age. So, come on in to see us for a periodontal evaluation sooner rather than later, since it really IS something that’s recommended you periodically do!

An Indispensable Orthodontist

Another professional that a full-service practice needs to have on their team is an Orthodontist. These in-demand doctors specialize strictly in the prevention and correction of crooked teeth. Up until recently, people mainly wore braces during their teen years, but with today’s technology, nearly anyone can benefit from the truly transformative dental treatments that are now available.

Here’s a shortlist of the areas and issues that our adept Orthodontist is able to assist both children and adults with:

  • Many Types of Braces Including Traditional, Damon, and Lingual
  • Invisalign
  • Overbite – Underbite – Crossbite – Open Bite
  • Spacing and/or Crowding of Teeth
  • Misplaced Midline

That’s merely a taste of what they can do for your mouth! So, if your teeth are currently uncomfortable and/or unattractive, simply make an appointment to see exactly how we can help. After conducting a comprehensive noninvasive exam, our Orthodontist will clearly explain their findings. Then, they’ll suggest your best options for a successful fix.

Why wait any longer to look and feel better?

Whatever your problem may be, the professionals at Irresistible Smiles will devise an effective strategy for straightening everything out!

Same Day Emergency Dental Service

Here at Irresistible Smiles, we are well aware that some dental dilemmas will require care immediately. Whether it’s an accident or a sick tooth, there are certain situations when you simply cannot wait a day to see the dentist. That is why we are always on standby to assist our patients and ease their pain in emergency situations.

When you’re in a hurry to stop hurting we can certainly help with:

  • A Bitten Lip or Tongue
  • A Broken or Cracked Tooth/Lost Teeth
  • A Broken Jaw
  • Objects Caught Between Teeth
  • Severe Toothache and Infection

So now you know! If an unexpected and urgent dental issue ever arises where you require fast attention, our doctors will dutifully be here to help! From tooth injuries to infections, or practically any other oral problem, at least you won’t have to go far for emergency dental service in San Diego. Of course we always wish our patients well and therefore do not enjoy seeing anyone under these circumstances, but if we have to, then hopefully we’ll be able to turn your frown upside down!

A Delicate Pediatric Dentist

Our San Diego practice prides itself on being able to provide quality preventative dental care for patients of all ages, which means we can also accommodate children. A good Pediatric Dentist (like ours) knows everything about oral care for kids, because of course that’s what they’re especially trained to do!

Some Good Points for Seeing a Pediatric Dentist:

  • They Provide Gentler Care – So Kids Are More Comfortable with Them
  • It Introduces and Encourages Oral Health and Hygiene At An Early Age
  • For The Detection and Prevention of Problems

So you see, it is actually very important and perhaps even vital that your child visit a dentist soon after developing their first tooth. You definitely DO NOT want to wait for a toothache or terrible cavities to occur! Introduce your kid/s to dental care while they’re young and they’ll surely appreciate it when they get older. Plus, please plan to make an appointment for them to see our Pediatric Dentist whenever they’re ready, and we will certainly do our best to make it a pleasant experience!

The Essential and Enduring Endodontist

Endodontics has been a highly specialized department of dentistry for decades, and it is still in demand to this day. In fact, it’s such a specialized area, that even though all Endodontists are dentists, it’s estimated that less than 5% of dentists are actually Endodontists! These experts require an extra 2 years of rigorous training beyond regular dental school in order to be qualified for the complicated work they do.

The primary procedures of an Endodontist are:

  • Root Canal
  • Endodontic Therapy
  • Intensive/Follow-up Treatment

Despite the recent rise in the use of dental implants, root canals are still done everyday, and they may even be more suitable for certain situations. This is because not only can a root canal cost a bit less than implants, but more importantly, when there is any possibility of saving the root of the original tooth, we usually recommend doing so. If it weren’t for our invaluable Endodontists, we wouldn’t be able to make as many Irresistible Smiles!

Super Oral Surgeon Services

Oral Surgery is among the many services we provide with precision here at Irresistible Smiles. This means that fortunately, we don’t have to direct our patients to a different practice when they encounter dental situations that demand surgery. This makes us happy because we want to help with every aspect of your oral health!

Our Oral Surgeons are fully qualified & certified for the following operations:

  • Tooth Extraction/s
  • Bone Grafting
  • Maxillofacial Surgery
  • Wisdom tooth/teeth Removal
  • Corrective Jaw Surgery / Fixing of Facial Injuries / TMJ Disorders

For a better explanation of what oral surgery entails, here is the exact definition from the American Dental Association – “Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is the specialty of dentistry which includes the diagnosis, surgical and adjunctive treatment of diseases, injuries and defects involving both the functional and aesthetic aspects of the hard and soft tissues of the oral and maxillofacial region.”

We realize that surgery is really no fun for anyone, but neither is suffering with any sort of mouth or facial pain. Therefore, if you’re currently experiencing any problems, you should proceed with making an appointment at our practice in San Diego. Remember, when it comes to dental problems, what might seem minor can become major overnight!

Wonderful Teeth Whitening Service

Another appealing thing that we’ve come quite a long way with in dentistry is teeth whitening! And with a name like ours, it only makes sense for us to offer this service. Naturally, anything white is more susceptible to staining, and unfortunately that happens to be the color of our teeth. Consequently, as we age, discoloration inevitably starts to develop and it can become quite unsightly. The great news is we can now easily step out of the darkness and into the white!

Here Are the Top 5 Reasons for a Professional Teeth Whitening

  • To Effectively Remove Dark Stains Caused By Culprits Including Cigarettes, Wine, and Coffee
  • To Look and Feel Better
  • Better Results Over Whiteners You Buy in the Store and Apply Yourself
  • It’s Noninvasive Yet the Effects are Nearly Instant
  • Only Known Side Effects – An Irresistible Smile

Given all these good reasons for getting your teeth whitened, why not go ahead and give it a try? It won’t cause you any pain or cost too much, so you’ve got nothing to lose, and an Irresistible Smile to gain. During your brief visit to our office, our brilliant specialist will quickly assist you with a wonderfully professional tooth whitening!

A Dependable Denture Care Center

Last but not least on the long list of dentistry that we can assist with is denture care. If you thought dentures were a thing of the past or only for old folks, guess again!

In fact, if anything, they have made a comeback since significant advancements have been made surrounding them. In case you didn’t know, dentures are a one-piece replacement of your original rows of teeth, whether it be the top, bottom, or both.

Dynamic Details on Dentures:

  • There Are a Couple Different Kinds Available Including Conventional and Immediate
  • There Are Also Overdentures Which May Be An Option – (in that case, you won’t lose ALL of your teeth ;)
  • They Often Allow People to Chew and Talk Better – (and in many cases look better)

In order to determine if dentures are a good fit for you, we would first have to conduct a comprehensive evaluation in our convenient and comfortable Chula Vista location. The experts here can also help with people with existing dentures. If you’re already a V.I.P. (very important patient) at our office, you know the drill, just give us a call and we will be happy to give you more details on dentures

Cherished Chula Vista

As the 7th largest city in southern California, Chula Vista is a superb location to live AND work. Not only is the scenery nice, so are most of the people that you’ll meet in this culturally diverse and busy metropolis that continues to build. With a population that’s currently over a quarter million and counting, there really isn’t any wonder why someone would want to call this pleasant place their home.

Chula Vista literally does translate to ‘beautiful view’ in English, so that is obviously one of the many reasons that residents grow to cherish their surroundings. In addition to featuring some of the world’s finest scenery, the services here are second to none, and that includes our dental care. We feel it’s a great location to create Irresistible Smiles for patients. Seeing as though the sun is always shining, it seems to only make sense for your smile to do the same.

Routinely seeing your dentist is mandatory for remaining healthy!

Why not give the professionals at our Chula Vista practice a chance to provide you with first-rate relief? Whether you’re a native in search of a new dentist, someone who recently moved here or is preparing to sometime soon, simply give us a call and we’ll certainly be more than happy to accommodate you. We’re conveniently located in South Bay at 1040 Tierra Del Rey in suite #211.

At your initial new patient consultation, we’ll conduct a thorough yet painless examination that ideally includes taking x-rays. That way we’ll have the information we need to advise you on what needs to be done next, if anything at all.

Our top priority is your oral health, and we promise to prove that when we become your primary dental care provider!
