Comprehensive Oral Exams

All New and returning patients receive a comprehensive oral examination at our San Jose Officewhich includes a screening for oral cancer, gum and bone disease, blood pressure, and systemic disorders. Oral exams are necessary to determine current dental health.

Gum tissue is measured with a fine instrument ruler to calibrate in millimeters pocket depth between the tooth and the connective gum tissue around the tooth. Pocket depth more than 4 mm could indicate disease and infection and requires immediate attention.

X-rays are taken as needed.

 

Invisalign Treatment

Did you have braces when you were younger? Are you feeling like your teeth are shifting out of alignment? WE CAN HELP. In only a matter of weeks, let us help you get back the straight you want.

Invisalign© is the invisible way to straighten your teeth without braces and uses a series of clear removable aligners to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets. In fact, over 70% of all U.S. orthodontists are certified to treat patients with Invisalign©.

How Does Invisalign© Work?

You wear each set of aligners for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to the final position your orthodontist or dentist has prescribed.
You’ll visit your orthodontist or dentist about once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
