6 MONTH ORTHODONTICS

This patient is such a doll.  She visited MOD Squad Dental wanting just a minor adjustment to her smile.  She thought her teeth were not that bad but was ready to invest in braces to make them straighter.  Dr. Friedman discussed an advanced orthodontic system, Six Month Braces, with the patient.  She was excited to hear she could straighter her teeth in only six months.  Six months from placement of her braces, her braces were removed and the patient could not be happier.

With her cute accent she shares, “The entire team is very kind, friendly and professional.The office environment is focused on providing the patients the most comfortable experience.  Dr.Greg Friedman is the most talented dentist in San Diego.  My family and I are very fortunate to have found such an amazing dentist.”

Scripps Ranch Dentist-MOD Squad Dental-Featured Smile of the Week

J.R.b.a.6 &11

Do you think your teeth are “too small”?  This patient visited our office wanting his laterals (teeth next to his two front teeth) to be larger and match the rest of his smile.  During his complimentary consultation, Dr. Friedman discussed placing a porcelain veneer on his laterals matching the rest of his teeth and his smile.  Dr. Friedman placed 2 prep-less porcelain veneers not smoothing or prepping his existing laterals.  What a great smile!

Implant-Retained Dentures in San Diego, CA: Enjoy a Complete Smile with Dental Implants

134124545It is no secret that missing teeth negatively impact your daily life, keeping you from enjoying your favorite foods and prompting self-consciousness about your smile. Today’s advanced restorative and cosmetic dentistry procedures make it possible to replace missing teeth in a way far superior to traditional prostheses like removable bridges and dentures. With dental implants, the San Diego, CA team at Mod Squad Dental can effectively secure a full denture to the jaw, promoting a more stable and natural bite.

Implant-Retained Dentures

Like a traditional denture, implant-retained dentures are custom prostheses that are designed to replace missing teeth. A full arch of missing teeth is secured to the jaw by way of dental implants, small titanium posts that are surgically placed within the jaw bone and gum tissue. After a brief period of healing after implant surgery, the custom denture is affixed to these posts. The result is a strong, beautiful smile that frees you from the worry of slipping dentures and discomfort.

Unlike many other general dentists who must send their patients to a different office for implant placement, our team welcomes a local periodontal surgeon into our Scripps Ranch practice so that our patients can continue visiting the office they know and love. Our periodontist, Dr. Tina Beck, is available on Fridays for consultations and the surgical placement of dental implants. We look forward to working with you to ensure a beautiful, healthy, and complete smile that lasts a lifetime.

Reserve Your Visit Today

If you currently wear dentures and you’d like to learn more about how implant-retained dentures can benefit you, we’d like to invite you to contact our office in San Diego, CA today to schedule your dental implant consultation with Dr. Beck and our team. Our cutting-edge technology and patient-centric approach make all the difference in the world when it comes to providing the best dental care for families in Scripps Ranch and the surrounding areas. We also serve Rancho Pensaquitas, Poway, and beyond.

How Can Porcelain Veneers in San Diego, CA Transform Your Smile?

164125777Take a moment and envision an image of your favorite movie star’s smile. What are some of the characteristics that stand out most vividly? Mostly likely, it’s the lustrously white teeth and perfect spacing to which you are drawn. The eye loves symmetry and beauty, and a perfect smile embodies both of these qualities. At Mod Squad Dental, your local San Diego cosmetic dentist, our team offers a wide range of cosmetic dentistry solutions to fulfill your every need, including porcelain veneers.

The Beautiful Smile You Deserve with Porcelain Veneers

It is relatively common knowledge that white, properly aligned teeth are considered the building blocks of a gorgeous smile. Unfortunately, not all of us are lucky enough to enjoy these features naturally. Injuries, decay, diet, and circumstance all contribute to the appearance of your smile. Some of the most common smile complaints cited by men and women in America include the following:

  • Teeth that look dull or gray due to age
  • Stains that are deeply set within the enamel
  • Discoloration caused by coffee, tea, wine, cigarettes, and dark foods
  • Chips or cracks in enamel
  • Misalignment or crowding
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Too much gum covering the teeth
  • Teeth that are too small or misshapen

With porcelain veneers, the dentists at Mod Squad Dental can help you craft a beautiful, flawless smile in as little as two visits to our Scripps Ranch office. These wafer thin layers of tooth-colored porcelain fit precisely over the front surfaces of your teeth, effectively masking imperfections. You’ll love how confident you feel showing off your brand new smile!

Schedule Your Cosmetic Dentistry Consultation Today

At Mod Squad Dental, we want every one of our patients to leave our office looking and feeling better than ever. One of the ways we accomplish this is with cosmetic dentistry. Contact our office in Scripps Ranch, CA today to schedule your complimentary consultation with our team, and see what an amazing difference porcelain veneers can make in your smile. Our state-of-the-art practice warmly welcomes patients from throughout nearby communities in Poway, Rancho Pensaquitas, and beyond.

Scripps Ranch Dentist-MOD Squad Dental-Time for a Cleaning?

cleaning appointment

The best way to keep your smile up right is to make sure and have regular cleanings with your hygienist at MOD Squad Dental.

Gum (periodontal) disease is a bacterial infection caused by plaque – the sticky, colorless, bacteria-filled film that adheres to your teeth. As plaque builds up on teeth, it hardens and becomes tartar, which can be difficult to remove. The bacteria in plaque produce toxins that irritate the gums and cause inflammation and gingivitis. If bacteria are not removed by your hygienist and the inflammation continues, the gum tissues can be destroyed and more advanced stages of gum disease may follow.

If you are due for your routine cleaning, phone Jess today to schedule your cleaning with Wanda, Kaylyn, or Michelle.  858-547-0070

Scripps Ranch Dentist-MOD Squad Dental-Soda & Your Teeth

soda.3
Pop or soda can be a refreshing drink, especially on a hot day. It’s a staple of barbeques and pizza parties – kids love sodas and some people consume it with every meal. However, much like anything, too much soda can damage your health. This delicious drink can bring harm your body – they add unnecessary calories to your diet and the large amounts of sugar can lead to diabetes. Some studies even show that consuming as little as one can of soda per day can give you a 48 percent higher chance of getting a heart attack.Soda can do some remarkable damage to your teeth. Some research suggests it may be just as corrosive to teeth as drinking battery fluid, and this can occur as soon as the first three minutes of consumption. This is caused by a combination of mostly three factors, one is the sugar (which is really a minor factor compared to the others) then comes the phosphoric acid present in some sodas and finally the staining effect that they can have on your teeth.The sugar problem is caused by acid creating bacteria on the surface of your teeth that feed on sugar and use it to create acid, which destroys your teeth. The sugar in sodas is easily used by the teeth as opposed to the sugars in say, whole grain bread which does not break down in the mouth.

The phosphoric acid is worth avoiding in general. This is the same substance that dentists use to scour enamel so you know it’s effective in removing it. Of course it’s not present in the same concentrations as in a dental application but it could be worth avoiding all the same. Erosion is far more harmful than decay, and can cause hypersentivity.

Finally comes the cavities and the staining of the teeth. Sodas add layers of sugars to your teeth that create plaque and offer food for hordes of bacteria that happen to be in your mouth. Over time this layer can produce a yellowed effect on your teeth that is unsightly and will need to be treated by a dentist.

So what can you do to prevent this? The most obvious answer is to reduce or altogether stop consuming sodas. Substitute with fresh fruit juices or just have milk or better yet, water.  Citrus juice should be consumed in moderation, and if possible, in one sitting, as the highly acidic nature of these juices can cause harm teeth. Energy drinks and power drinks should also be avoided as they can have as much or even  more sugar than sodas.

If you do have soda, use a straw to reduce contact with your teeth. Also, rinse out your mouth and teeth with water, to wash out the sugars and stop them from wearing away the enamel in your teeth. Reduce your cavities and stop the erosion of enamel by using toothpaste and mouth rinse with fluoride.

Managing your oral health is important – teeth is one of the few things in the body which cannot regenerate. Take care of your teeth today, and you’ll avoid painful and expensive dentistry work later on. – See more at: http://www.dentistry.net/dental-nutrition/soda-on-teeth/#sthash.RHsRkb2s.dpuf
