A Minimally Invasive Approach to Dentistry

What is Supra-Gingival
(Healthy) Dentistry?

“Supra-gingival dentistry” might sound complicated, but it’s fairly simple at its core, it means above-the-gum minimally invasive dentistry. Traditional dentistry often involves removing healthy enamel to make room for dental restorations that are placed partially below the gum line, which can lead to collateral damage and chronic inflammation. With Dr. Ruiz and his nearby team, however, all work is completed with minimally invasive techniques above the gum line. This means less pain and soreness for the dental patient. Plus, the results are more lifelike, meaning someone can enjoy the best of both worlds when it comes to their health and appearance.

What is the Best Way to Find a Cosmetic Dentist?

Plenty of dental practices are able to offer smile-enhancing services such as veneers or teeth whitening. But the fact of the matter is that some dentists have been more thoroughly trained in such procedures than others. To get a better feel for a dentist’s skill level in cosmetic dentistry, it’s worth checking their credentials.

Dr. Ruiz has a reputation as one of the top aesthetic dentists in Los Angeles as well as throughout California. He is currently the Director of the Los Angeles Institute of Esthetic Dentistry, and he is a respected educator who often shares his knowledge of cosmetic dentistry with others.

How Do I Find the Best Place to Get Dental Work Done?

It’s easy to get overwhelmed trying to sort through all the results that come up when you perform an online search for a nearby dentist. You can narrow the field by figuring out what traits matter most to you; for example, you likely want a dentist who is close to your home and is willing to take your insurance.  Once you’ve found a dentist that seems to fit your needs, take the time to learn more about their credentials and their overall approach to care. You should also see what their patients think of them by reading reviews on sites such as Google and Yelp.

How Much Does a Dental Checkup and Cleaning Cost in Burbank, CA?

If you simply want to know what the average cost of a dental checkup and cleaning is, the answer is between $200 and $350 in the United States. When it comes to the cost of your own visit, however, you should know that the final price can be influenced by the location of the practice and your dental health. Rest assured that we offer multiple payment options and can help you find ways to make necessary preventive care more affordable.

How Do I Get Emergency Dental Care?

The best person to call during a dental emergency is typically your dentist since, compared to the ER, they are often in a better position to treat toothaches and other oral health issues. When you contact our office for emergency dental care, we will ask questions about your situation and offer advice for managing your discomfort. We will often be able to see you on the same day as you call; once you get to our office, we will examine your mouth, identify the source of the problem, and explain what treatments are available for restoring your oral health. 

Keep in mind that you should call 911 if your life is in danger due to a broken jaw, swelling that interferes with swallowing or breathing, oral bleeding that can’t be halted, or any other reason.
