General, Restorative & Cosmetic Dental Services
We are a full-service family dental practice located in Carmichael, CA. In most cases, we can create a dental treatment plan that is completely in-office. That means quicker, more affordable improvements to your appearance and function of your teeth. Our dental services include General, Cosmetic and Restorative Dentistry.
Dental Services in our Carmichael Office include:
We offer a wide range of general dental care procedures to address routine preventative care as well as complex restoration and cosmetic procedures.
Cleaning of your teeth by our dental hygienists removes plaque and tartar to reduce the risk of periodontal (gum) disease and cavities. Routine cleaning saves teeth and gums, as well as provides an opportunity to review dental care treatment.
A Dental Filling (Dental Restoration) is intended to replace tooth structure lost to decay. Dental fillings can last many years, sometimes a lifetime. However, eventually all fillings will need to be replaced. Constant bacteria from eating and drinking or stress caused from grinding or clenching can cause the filling to fail.
Dr. Koch is trained to perform many aspects of oral surgery. He does many third molar (wisdom teeth) extractions. When the patient is 14-15 yrs. old Dr. Koch begins to determine the appropriate time to perform an extraction of the "wisdom teeth". If he feels like they might be out of his scope of expertise he may at that time refer the patient to a specialist for dental extractions known as an oral Surgeon.
We offer one-day ceramic dental crown restoration with CEREC3D® technology. CEREC3D® allows us to create crowns in office, typically in one appointment, to restore damaged teeth.
Dental bridges allow us to “bridge” a missing tooth with a dental bridge. Basically two teeth on either side of a missing tooth, support a replacement in the middle. If no adjacent teeth are available, a dental bridge can be supported by dental implants.
If periodontal disease is present, it may be necessary to check the depth of gum pockets. Gum pockets or recession can often be managed with scaling and root planning which removes deeply embedded tarter which can cause tooth loss.
For our patients who have lost teeth, dental implants offer clear advantages over traditional bridgework or dentures. Implants offer our patients an opportunity to have a normal life when it comes to eating, drinking, smiling and even sleeping! Dental implants are metal, usually titanium posts or frames, which are surgically placed into the healthy bone under the gum tissue. Once the dental implant is in place and the bone healed around it, a dentist mounts the replacement tooth.
Designed to eliminate bacteria from the infected root. A root canal can prevent reinfection and save the natural tooth. When one undergoes a root canal, the inflamed or infected pulp is removed and the inside of the tooth is carefully cleaned and disinfected, then filled and sealed.
Dentures are removable teeth that can replace your original missing teeth and help restore your smile. If you’ve lost all of your natural teeth, whether from gum disease, tooth decay or injury, replacing missing teeth will benefit your appearance and your health.
