The dental services provided at Lake Merritt Dental cover all the bases, from showing you good hygiene techniques and recommending the best products to use, to restoring and transforming your smile to make it attractive and functional. Let us show you how quality dental care can vastly enhance your health and well-being.
Prevention & Maintenance
Preventive dentistry is rooted in oral hygiene instruction. It includes routine checkups and cleanings (at least two a year!) and diagnostic x-rays. Many serious ailments–including diabetes and liver failure–can manifest in oral cavities. So routine exams are useful not only to keep pesky plaque at bay, but as a crucial part of your overall care. Developing issues can also be caught and addressed before worse problems develop.
Restorative & Specialty Care
Dental restorations cover everything from cavity fillings, root canals and crowns, to replacements with prosthetics or implants. Restoring your teeth to their former glory requires extensive planning to address the form and function of the teeth, and most importantly, your health. Our well-rounded team of specialists perform restorative work in all areas, including endodontics, orthodontics, prosthodontics, periodontics, extractions, and implantology.
