Cosmetic Patient

Prosthodontic or Dentures

We offer partial denture and complete denture. For partial denture, there is metal free option. For complete denture, besides conventional denture, we also offer denture supported by implant with excellent cosmetic look and comfort for those patients with no ridge support to hold the conventional suction retained dentures.These implant retained dentures will never become loose or slip and slide when eating. Many patients have endured and put up with ill-fitting dentures for years due to poor ridge support. After receiving implant retained dentures, they comment that they wish they had these made years before. Now these same patients can go out in public and to restaurants and to church and social functions and not have to worry about what type of foods will be served. They can eat and talk with confidence. Many of these patients have gone from miserable "shut-ins" to happy social butterflies. Our cosmetic and implant retained dentures have given many patients their life back. They are healthier because they can now eat all types of foods pain-free and are happier because of all the social aspects that come from "getting out of the house."

Gum Disease Treatment

75% of adult tooth loss is caused by gum disease, and at least 80% of the population has some degree of gum disease. This disease is an infectionof the gums and jawbones, and is caused by the colonization of bacteria underneath the tartar on your teeth. Bacteria and the chemical by-products that the body uses to fight these bacteria can enter the blood stream and cause serious problems in distant parts of the body. In fact, scientists have now linked gum disease to heart disease, stroke, diabetes, pre-mature births, and low birth weight.

From an oral health standpoint, healthy gums are critical because they are considered as “foundation”. Without a solid foundation, any restorative work would not be successful!

Often there are no noticeable symptoms of gum disease for a long time. Only a trained dental professional can detect gum disease in its early stages. And while gum disease is not curable, it is controllable.

Dr. Trieu has training in the treatment of gum disease and we take a proactive and comprehensive approach to gum therapy by providing the following services:
• Charting and Diagnostic Services
• Thorough Gum Examination
• X-rays
• Scaling and Root Planing
• Non-surgical Gum Therapy
• Antibiotic (Arestin) Therapy - a deep cleaning agent is placed in the gum pockets and around the teeth to further combat bacteria
• Home Care Treatments (mouth washes, etc.)
• Patient Education - important information about gum disease and prevention

Root Canal Treatment

When Dr. Trieu informs you need a root canal, that's actually good news. It means the tooth can be saved, instead of being extracted.

The procedure is not painful, as you may have imagined. In our office, we will numb the tooth so you won't feel any pain, and there is little discomfort afterwards.

Repairing the root canal is the way Dr. Trieu can save the entire tooth. The other alternative is to remove the tooth completely. However, extraction option would be much less healthy and more expensive in the long term. Upon teeth removal, leaving that space empty may create other problems, like making chewing and biting more difficult. Teeth may also shift position if missing teeth are not there to hold the space. If you decide to have the dentist pull the tooth and replace it with a denture or bridge, the replacement cost will be significantly more than the root canal treatment. On the other hand, a root canal procedure limits the infection and keeps it from destroying the tooth. During the procedure, the dentist removes the infected tissue, thoroughly cleans, disinfects, shapes the inner space then fill and seal this space. We can think of a root canal treatment as washing the invasive bacteria out of the root, filling it with a biocompatible material that soothes the area, then sealing it and finishing with a crown to allow normal function and prevent future fracture. It will also look and feel just as good as new.
