Why Your Dental Health is Important

Many scientists believe that serious health conditions are tied directly to oral health—especially that gum disease (which a large percentage of Americans have in greater or lesser seriousness) can lead to heart disease. Visiting a our Carlsbad dental office regularly can potentially help you to avoid these serious health issues. And with our family dentistry services, we can help you and your family achieve and maintain optimal dental health no matter what stage of life each family member is in. We pride ourselves in building long lasting relationships with our patients and make our recommendations with both your oral health and your overall health in mind.

Gum Disease Treatment

Sometimes a lack of dental health care can lead to infection of the gums or roots of the teeth which can cause a lot of pain. With gum disease treatment we can help to prevent additional oral health complications that can arise from these infections. While gum disease treatment can be effective in getting your oral health back under control, it is always better to visit La Costa Dental Excellence on a regular basis to prevent gum disease from becoming an issue.

Wisdom Teeth Extraction

Hidden wisdom teeth can also cause unforeseen complications, including shifting of your smile, pain, and infection. We offer the latest techniques to gently remove the underlying tooth, making wisdom teeth removal fast and easy. While wisdom tooth extraction is typically associated with teenagers, it is also available for adults who start having trouble with their wisdom teeth.
