The process of repairing and rebuilding the appearance and function of your mouth, using multiple procedures at once is called a full mouth reconstruction.


Prosthodontics is that branch of dentistry that is responsible for returning the function, anatomy, phonation and altered aesthetics of the stomatognathic apparatus as a result of the loss of one or more teeth.


A dental implant is a surgical component that interfaces with the bone of the jaw or skull to support a dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge, denture, facial prosthesis or to act as an orthodontic anchor.


Implant crowns Dental implant crowns can make a significant difference to those with damaged or missing teeth. The reason why they are such a popular modern-day tooth replacement choice is their similarity to natural teeth, with regard to both aesthetics and functionality.


The maximum conservation and protection of natural teeth is the best for eating and chewing; however, there are three basic ways to replace a missing tooth or teeth, including a fixed dental bridge, dentures, and dental implants. Each case is unique so it is recommended to see a specialist.


In clinical terms, endodontics involves either preserving part, or all of the dental pulp in health, or removing all of the pulp in irreversible disease. Root canal treatment is a dental procedure used to treat infected tooth pulp which would be otherwise extracted.


Veneers are a prosthetic device, by prescription only, used by the cosmetic dentist. A dentist may use one veneer to restore a single tooth or veneer with high quality that may have been fractured or discolored, or in most cases multiple teeth on the upper arch to create a big bright "Hollywood" type of smile makeover.


Dental fillings, or simply fillings, are treatments used to restore the function, integrity, and morphology of missing tooth structure resulting from caries or external trauma as well as to the replacement of such structure supported by dental implants.


A crown, or dental cap, is a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant. A crown may be needed when a large cavity threatens the health of a tooth.


The purpose of oral hygiene is to eliminate and prevent the formation of dental plaque or biofilm that harms oral health, good oral hygiene is key to preventing many complications such as gingivitis.


Tooth whitening or tooth bleaching is the process of lightning the color of human teeth. Whitening is often desirable when teeth become yellowed over time for a number of reasons, and can be achieved by changing the intrinsic or extrinsic color of the tooth enamel.


Dental cleaning is part of oral hygiene and involves the removal of dental plaque from the teeth in order to prevent cavities (tooth decay), gingivitis, and periodontal disease. A dental cleaning every 4 to 6 months helps maintain good oral health.


Tooth decay, also known as dental caries or cavities, is the breakdown of teeth due to acids made by bacteria. The cavities may be a number of different colors from yellow to black. Symptoms may include pain and difficulty with eating.


Extractions are performed for a wide variety of reasons, but most commonly to remove teeth which have become unrestorable through tooth decay, periodontal disease, or dental trauma, especially when they are associated with toothache.


A wisdom tooth or third molar is one of the three molars per quadrant of the human dentition. It is the most posterior of the three. The age at which wisdom teeth come through (erupt) is variable, but generally occurs between late teens and early twenties. Most adults have four wisdom teeth, one in each of the four quadrants


Orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics is the specialty of dentistry that focuses on the alignment of the teeth and the dental arches: the maxilla and the mandible. The practice of this specialty includes diagnosis, prevention, interception, and correction of malocclusion and other abnormalities of the developing or mature orofacial structures.


The dental hygiene diagnosis is an integral part of a dental hygiene appointment. It allows for the collection of data to be formulated into an oral health care plan that is patient-specific in order to obtain optimum oral health care instruction.

This review is from someone who had very positive results until there was an issue with dental work done the previous year. Dr. Carreon stepped in this year and totally fixed the issue. He was respectful and 100% wanted to make me happy. And he did! Highly recommend him

I believe I had work done at this location over a decade ago. I'm needing to go back but I'm wondering what pain med was recommended. It was a fast acting (dissolvable) along with a 4 hour pill. Believe it started with a "S"
