Dental Hygiene & Routine Care
It is recommended that adults receive routine cleanings twice a year to prevent gum disease. Our hygienists will clean your teeth of plaque and inspect you for signs of cavities and decay. They will also demonstrate to you best practices for at-home dental care, so you can be proactive about your oral health.
Whether you need full or partial dentures, our team can craft a set that is perfectly molded to your mouth. Our dentures are created to be fully functional and comfortable, so no one will notice that they aren’t real teeth.
When your tooth is decayed or broken beyond repair, or if it is causing severe overcrowding, it is best to remove it. With conscious sedation and anesthetics, we can make this procedure as painless and comfortable as possible. After removing the tooth, we will fill in the root and can replace the tooth with an implant, bridge or partial denture created to match the rest of your teeth. All options will function just as well as a normal tooth.
Gone are the days of noticeable silver fillings. Fillings today are made of a variety of materials and are tooth-colored, so they will blend seamlessly into your smile. If your tooth is broken or cracked, this may be a good option for you.

The periodontics at Benicia Family Dentistry check for and treat inflammation and periodontitis, a disease of the areas around the teeth including the gums. Often we use the Lightwalker laser, which is more comfortable than traditional treatments.
Prosthodontics involves the creation and implementation of tooth replacements. This could be involve implants or dentures.
If you have a deep cavity or severe trauma in a tooth, a root canal is a great option to restore it. This involves removing the infected pulp from the tooth, cleaning it out, re-filling and sealing it and then topping it with a crown or filling.
A sealant is placed on top of a tooth to protect it from decay by blocking it from food, plaque and bacteria.
A crown is used to cover a broken or decayed tooth to protect it from further damage. Our crowns are designed in-house by our Certified Digital Designer using CAD-CAM computer design tools. They are 100% ceramic and custom-made to match the rest of your teeth.
