Dental Services for Downtown San Francisco, SOMA & East Cut
Proper dental care is a vital aspect of maintaining overall health and well-being. From preventing oral health issues to restoring damaged teeth and enhancing the aesthetics of your smile, Dr. Perona offers a wide range of services to address your dental needs.
Preventive dental care forms the foundation of maintaining a healthy smile. Regular check-ups and professional cleanings are essential to prevent common oral health problems such as cavities, gum disease, and dental infections. Dentists and dental hygienists work together to educate patients about proper oral hygiene practices, including daily brushing, flossing, and fluoride products. By identifying potential issues early on and offering personalized guidance, preventive care helps patients maintain solid, disease-free teeth and gums.
Despite diligent preventive efforts, dental problems can still arise. Restorative dental care focuses on repairing and preserving the functionality of damaged or decayed teeth. Standard restorative procedures include fillings, crowns, bridges, and implants. These treatments not only alleviate pain and discomfort but also restore the structural integrity of the teeth, allowing patients to chew, speak, and smile confidently.
Cosmetic dentistry goes beyond oral health by enhancing the aesthetics of your smile. Cosmetic treatments range from teeth whitening and veneers to orthodontic options like braces and clear aligners. These services are designed to improve the appearance of teeth, resulting in a more attractive and confident smile. Cosmetic care can be life-changing, boosting self-esteem and helping patients achieve the beautiful, radiant smiles they’ve always desired.
Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) disorders can cause jaw pain, headaches, and difficulty opening and closing the mouth. We offer specialized TMJ treatment to diagnose and address these issues. This may include custom mouthguards, physical therapy, stress reduction techniques, or referral to a specialist when necessary. Managing TMJ disorders can significantly improve a patient’s quality of life by alleviating discomfort and restoring normal jaw function.
Sleep Apnea & Snoring Treatment
Sleep apnea is a common condition characterized by interruptions in breathing during sleep. Both sleep apnea and heavy snoring can negatively affect your health. If you believe you may have sleep apnea, we can refer you to a sleep specialist for diagnosis. If you have been diagnosed with sleep apnea, we can treat the issue with custom-designed oral appliances.
MLS Cold Laser Therapy
We are proud to offer MLS (Multiwave Locked System) cold laser therapy, an innovative approach in dentistry. This non-invasive, painless treatment harnesses the power of laser technology to reduce inflammation, relieve pain, and promote tissue healing. Dr. Perona may use MLS therapy when treating various oral conditions, including, oral sores and lesions, post-operative discomfort, and some TMJ discomfort. MLS cold laser therapy offers patients a faster and more comfortable recovery process, enhancing their overall dental experience.
