Services We Offer at Dentist of Torrance

A Lomita family dentist can help everyone in your family prevent dental disease. And if you do end up with decay or gum disease, the Dentist of Torrance team will help you to quickly and comfortably take care of the situation to alleviate discomfort and prevent further damage down the road. Here are just a few of the preventative and restorative services we offer our patients.

Dental Checkups in Lomita

Every member of the family should receive regular dental check-ups to evaluate for gum disease, dental decay, oral cancer, bite issues, and other anomalies or issues. These check-ups should happen every six to 12 months. Evaluating oral tissues often allows us to catch problems early. The earlier you catch something, the easier it is to fix. For example, if we check your teeth now and again 12 months from now and find a cavity, we can perform a filling. However, if it is years until your next check-up, the cavity will continue to get worse. By the time we treat it, you are at risk of losing more tooth structure or experiencing discomfort. We do not want you to have to go through that!

Another way to prevent dental diseases is with regular dental cleanings. If you have healthy gums, you can get a teeth cleaning every six months. If you have a history of periodontal disease, you will need maintenance cleanings more frequently. During these cleanings, our team will take time to educate you about how to properly brush and floss. We will recommend certain types of products (electric toothbrushes, toothpastes, etc.), and even recommend dietary adjustments.

Pediatric Dentistry in Lomita

Not every dentist is equipped to treat children, but we are! We want to make going to the dentist as convenient as possible and for many families in our area that means going to the dentist together. We are ready, willing, and able to accommodate your entire family and look forward to helping your little ones learn healthy oral health habits at an early age.

While many of the patients we treat with braces are younger, we believe you are never too old to straighten your teeth. In fact, if you were not able to fix occlusion issues when you were younger, now is the ideal time to do it. Treating bite issues can help prevent damage from years of incorrect bite pressure (from malocclusion and chewing), as well as from TMJ disorder, a painful jaw condition. The icing on the cake is that you get beautiful, straight, easier to clean teeth, too.

Composite Fillings in Lomita

Tooth-colored fillings are the only type of fillings we offer in our practice. Silver, amalgam fillings are not as safe or practical and require us to remove more tooth structure to improve filling retention. Composite fillings are bonded to the tooth surface, so they last longer and are more stable. Plus, they look so much better.
