First Steps for Dental Health
People with the healthiest teeth and gums practice good preventative care at home. However, visiting our dentist every six months for a professional cleaning and exam can bring your oral health to the next level.
Visiting Dr. Russell twice a year will let him assess how well you’re caring for your teeth and suggest improvements. It will also give him the chance to examine your mouth for common dental problems, including cavities, gum disease, and other threats to your oral health.
General Dentistry Treatments
If a combination of at-home care and regular professional help isn’t enough to prevent the onset of oral health problems, Dr. Russell can also recommend additional services to restore strength and function to your teeth and soft tissue. Some of the diagnosis and treatment options we provide include:
- DIAGNOdent technology for superior detection of cavities
- Digital X-rays
- Scaling and root planing to remove gum disease as low as the tooth root
- Laser gum therapy
Dr. Russell also provides a wide range of tooth repair and replacement options. Whether you need a dental filling to restore a single cracked tooth or dental implants for full replacement of the upper or lower row of teeth, our San Diego dentist can provide you with the personalized treatment you need to look and feel good about your smile again. And now with the addition of the 3Shape TRIOS® digital impression solution, treatment with Dr. Russell is faster and more comfortable than ever before. The TRIOS® system is a state-of-the-art intraoral scanner that has the ability to scan teeth and take high-speed images of the patient’s mouth, eliminating the need for impressions made with traditional silicone material. As one of only five dentists in San Diego to implement this innovative technological advancement in his practice, Dr. Russell is proud to offer the latest in digital dentistry to his patients.
In Case of Emergencies
Injury or illness doesn’t happen according to a set schedule. Unfortunately, this is also true for structures in the mouth. That’s why Dr. Russell is a key resource for emergency dental treatment.
If you experience a dental emergency, Dr. Russell is available 24/7. This philosophy is dedicated to providing you quality care when you need it – oftentimes when a tooth is injured and time is of the essence to find a solution to preserve your smile.
