I've been coming to this dental facility for over 5 years and every visit has been great. The staff is very respectful and kind. They are helpful when needed and address all issues if there are any. I am always in and out.
The staff is AWESOME, very professional! From the front desk to the back office. Dr. Kristina is so personal and full of energy! Colleen my Hygienist was a 11 on a scale from 1-10. I will be back and refer my friends to your practice. Thank you for taking such care of me. When do I get to come back? LOL every 6 month only!
Denise is a total professional, and makes dental hygiene a pleasurable experience. She is always so upbeat, gentle and caring. And it amazes me that she is able to continue conversations as if there had not been a 6 month interval. Thank you Denise!
It is unbelievable to finally find a dentist who can make me numb before a procedure! I have PAINLESSLY had 3 crowns this year and am thrilled to have no more fear of dental work. Dr. Hitzel and his staff are the greatest!!!
Very friendly and professional. The people that worked on me listened to what my concerns were and they addressed them immediately. I am very pleased with Dr. De La Torre and the young lady that did x-rays and assisted the dentist. I intend to remain a patient of this place.
There are several dental procedures that you may have heard referred to as 'Dental Cleanings.' Some of these procedures are performed to prevent periodontal disease from occurring (Preventative), while others are performed to either stop or reverse the effects of the periodontal disease process (therapeutic).
Your dentist uses root canal treatment to find the cause and then treat problems of the tooth's soft core (the dental pulp). Years ago, teeth with diseased or injured pulps were removed. Today, root canal treatment has given dentists a safe way of saving teeth.
We provide our patients with most oral surgery services including routine extractions and wisdom tooth removal. Most oral surgery procedures go very well, take less than an hour and are done in our office.
BOTOX Cosmetic is the first and only FDA-approved prescription product that temporarily improves the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and moderate to severe crow's feet in adults.
By taking care of your teeth, eating a balanced diet and visiting your dentist regularly, you can have healthy teeth and an attractive smile your entire life. Follow these tips to keep your teeth and mouth clean:
If you have been told you have periodontal (gum) disease, youre not alone. Many adults in the U.S. currently have some form of the disease. Periodontal diseases range from simple gum inflammation to serious disease that results in major damage to the soft tissue and bone that support the teeth. In the worst cases, teeth are lost.
After undergoing this multi-step process, many patients find they have a better feeling, better looking, and more stable solution to their tooth loss than more traditional dental reconstructive approaches.
Dental bonding on the anterior or front teeth is an excellent method for repairing minor imperfections such as chips and stains. It can also be used to fill gaps between the teeth called diastemas. Although no cosmetic dentistry procedure can take the place of good oral and periodontal hygiene, dental bonding can brighten your smile quickly and easily.
There are several new treatments for gum disease, such as Atridox and PerioChip, and Arestin. These treatments destroy bacteria, which left untreated, will cause gum disease. The treatments are applied directly to affected areas and continue working over time.
Crowns and bridges are two restorative techniques that repair damaged or missing teeth. They restore tooth function and appearance. The use of crowns and bridges also avoids shifting teeth that can happen after a tooth is lost. By maintaining or restoring the patient's bite and their smile the effects of the tooth damage or loss are reversed.
Porcelain veneers cover the front of your teeth with a very thin, yet surprisingly durable shell. These custom-made veneers can cover space between teeth, or help cosmetically correct crooked teeth, teeth that have been damaged or are discolored or teeth that are not shaped as well as you would like.
It is with great sadness that we bid Dr. de la Torre best wishes as she leaves us and embarks on another great adventure. She is leaving us to reside out of the state with her husband and baby daughter to come! She will be missed and we wish her the very best for her.
