Our Seattle dentists take a dynamic and holistic approach to dental care, with preventative strategies at the core of their practice. The best way to avoid extensive and costly dental work is to focus on prevention.
Dental Care for All
Each visit to Green Lake Cosmetic Dentistry starts with a conversation about you, your oral health, and your smile goals. We'll get to know your needs for care and desires for improvement.
For general dental cleanings and exams we will typically see each patient every six months unless we are trying to manage gum disease. Our healthy mouth cleanings consist of a thorough exam, x-rays, and oral cancer screening. After, our dentist will analyze your bite, smile and overall oral health. We'll then develop a personalized dental care plan that accounts for your unique oral health needs. We'll be sure to have time during your exam to chat with Dr. Vo or Dr. La Rota about any concerns you may be having.
We're a mercury-free dental office that specializes in conservative no-drill, no shot fillings. Thanks to dynamic laser technology we can treat cavities while they’re smaller before deeper into your enamel or adjacent teeth! Patients that have needed cavity repair, rave about how easy and painless this is for me.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Cancer of the mouth is one of the most common types of cancer. According to the American Cancer Society, nearly 30,000 new cases of oral cancer are diagnosed each year in the United States. Oral cancer can occur anywhere in the mouth, including the lips, tongue, gums, and throat. In our office we screen for oral cancer with the VELscope. The VELScope oral cancer screening kit is a game-changing device that allows us to identify irregular tissues before they’re visible. It does this by pinpointing any changes in your mouth, which could lead you down the path towards an early biopsy and possibly saving his life!
Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is a serious infection of the gums and bones that support the teeth. It is a leading cause of tooth loss in adults. Periodontal disease is caused by plaque, a sticky film of bacteria that forms on teeth. If plaque is not removed, it can harden and turn into tartar. Tartar can cause the gums to become inflamed and bleed. The inflammation can damage the gums and eventually destroy the bones that support the teeth.
Sedation dentistry is a great option for patients who have fear or anxiety related to dental procedures. Seattle sedation dentist, Dr. Vo, is experienced and thoroughly trained in sedation techniques to keep patients safe and comfortable during their visit. This allows patients to get the oral health care they need.
Sleep apnea is a sleeping disorder that Green Lake Cosmetic Dentistry can help treat. If you have sleep apnea, you may snore loudly, and you may feel tired even after a full night's sleep. If this is you, there is help you can seek out. Our dentists can help you overcome sleepless nights by prescribing a comfortable dental sleep device that allows air to safely pass through as you sleep.
TMJ / TMD Disorders
Seeking jaw pain relief? Look no further than our Seattle TMJ dentists at 4th & Seneca Dental. After meeting you and hearing your concerns, we will do a thorough examination and discuss which treatment options are best for your unique situation. Our treatment methods come in various forms, such as nightguards and oral appliances. These devices keep your teeth from grinding and hold your jaw in the proper comfortable position.
While we make our best effort to save and preserve your natural teeth, sometimes it is best to have a dental extraction to prevent further decay or damage to your mouth. We provide safe, comfortable extractions where you can be relaxed and pain free. Whether you require wisdom tooth removal, extractions for dental implants or have severe damage that requires the removal of your tooth - you can rest assured with our Seattle dental team you are in great hands.
