As a holistic practice, San Bruno Center for Dental Medicine focuses on prevention and minimally invasive care techniques. That’s why we’ve poured extensive time into disease prevention, starting with comprehensive exams and regular prophylactic visits.
Comprehensive Exams and Cleanings
At each exam, we will thoroughly diagnose your tooth health, bite, oral tissues, and screen for gum disease. Routine preventive cleanings can help you avoid tooth loss caused by periodontitis.
Oral DNA Testing
The link between oral diseases and general health is greater than you think. Certain bacteria inside of your smile can lead to an increased risk of heart disease, stroke, and much more. We also specialize in treating diabetic patients!
OralID Oral Cancer Screenings
Once each year, we perform a thorough oral cancer screening using the advanced OralID system. Early detection allows for the highest rate of successful treatment in oral cancer patients.
Every new patient receives an oral tour of his or her smile. Our high definition intraoral camera shows you up close everything that Dr. Lee and Dr. Parker see during your exam.
Laser Cavity Detection
Diagnodent lasers pinpoint areas of weak tooth enamel before cavities are visible on an x-ray or during a visual exam. This allows Dr. Lee and Dr. Parker to place minimally or non-invasive protective sealants and tooth-colored fillings, minimizing the impact on your smile.
Cavity Risk Assessment
Wouldn’t you like to know how at-risk your smile is for developing tooth decay? We perform a cavity risk assessment on every new patient, and once a year thereafter.
Sleep Apnea Therapy
We utilize oral appliances to enhance natural oxygen flow and improve your sleep quality. We work with a specialty doctor to provide you with a take home sleep study to determine whether or not you suffer from some form of sleep apnea or sleep disordered breathing. If you have mild to moderate breathing needs, we can work with a lab to create an oral appliance that may eliminate your need for a CPAP machine.
If you suffer from frequent headaches or jaw pain, our Tekscan bite analysis can evaluate your bite for discrepancies that may be contributing to conditions like TMJ Disorder. We provide a series of different splints, as well as occlusal adjustments following the TruDenta TMJ system.
If you’re interested in whitening your smile, we offer complimentary whitening kits and refills to new patients who keep their 6-month maintenance appointments without cancellations. Our whitening loyalty program sets you up with a series of custom whitening trays and prescription grade gel to brighten your teeth in the comfort of your own home!
