Want great results from your orthodontic treatment? Choose Invisalign in San Mateo

06/28/17 | Categories: Acne, Invisalign

Invisalign treatment available form San Mateo CA Dentist

If you wish your smile was straighter, there is a discreet way to undergo orthodontic treatment. Invisalign helps adults have a beautiful smile without years of traditional braces. Traditional braces use wires and brackets that are extremely visible. With Invisalign, no one will even know that you are straightening your smile.

 

Invisalign treatment uses clear aligner trays. The trays are worn for two weeks before being swapped for the next set. As you wear the trays, they gradually shift the teeth into proper alignment. The trays must be worn around 20-22 hours each day, but can be removed for eating and brushing teeth.

 

With Invisalign you get real results and the following benefits:

 

Trays are Invisible

Traditional braces are highly visible. With Invisalign, you can straighten your teeth without compromising your appearance.

 

Trays are comfortable

Wires and brackets can irritate the mouth and cause sores. Invisalign aligner trays are made from BPA-free, smooth plastic to make them comfortable and easy to wear.

 

Trays are Removable

Patients are free to take the trays out to eat and clean their teeth. Traditional braces leave lots of places for bacteria that are hard to reach with a toothbrush and many patients experience tooth decay during treatment. With Invisalign, you can stay on top of your oral health.

 

And finally, Invisalign straightening is flexible

Traditionally, orthodontic patients are told to avoid a long list of foods, including some favorites such as gum, nuts, and popcorn. With Invisalign, you can remove the aligners and enjoy these foods in moderation without messing up your braces.

 

Invisalign Cost

Depending on the condition of your teeth, you may require fewer or more number of trays and your Invisalign treatment can last from six months to year and a half. The treatment cost can range from $2500 to $5000.

 

Invisalign treatment can often be completed in less time than traditional braces. If you are in the San Mateo area, call Peninsula Dental Implant Center today at 650-567-5885 to schedule an appointment and find out if Invisalign is right for you.

 

Dentist in San Carlos take the fear out of dental root canal treatment

05/24/17 | Categories: Acne

dental root canal treatment available form San Carlos Dentist

Let’s face it; root canals have gotten a bad rap. Widely known as a painful or intense procedure, patients are often fearful at the mere mention of root canal treatment. The truth is that root canal treatment does not cause pain, it relieves it. The pain patients experience is the infection in the tooth.

 

Debunking the root canal myths

As an experienced San Carlos dentist, it’s important to debunk the myth that root canals are painful. To do this, we can explain what a root canal is and why a patient may need one. When the pulp chamber becomes damaged by decay or trauma, it can cause a painful infection around the nerves. When this happens, the only way to alleviate the pain is to eliminate the infection. The two ways to do this are with extraction or root canal therapy.

 

Our philosophy is to avoid extraction whenever possible, which is why we often recommend root canal treatments.

 

How root canal treatments work

To eliminate the infection, Dr. Gupta will remove the pulp and nerves. The next step is to clean out the area and remove any traces of bacteria or infection. After this, the tooth is filled and sealed. Because the nerves have been removed, patients will lose feeling in that tooth, but functionality will remain intact. The final step is to place a porcelain dental crown over the tooth to protect it from breakage.

 

How do I know if I need a root canal?

While most people will experience pain or extreme sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures, some may not present with any symptoms. In those cases, the only way to determine if a root canal is necessary is with an x-ray.

 

If you are experiencing pain, don’t wait to be evaluated, call us today at 650-567-5885.

 

IV sedation is available for San Mateo area patients interested in undergoing dental procedures

IV sedation is available for San Mateo Dentist

Patients who are undergoing long dental procedures or have severe dental anxieties may find that they avoid visiting the dentist for necessary treatments. Dr. Shivani Gupta of the San Carlos, CA encourages patients to learn about IV sedation.

 

What is sedation dentistry?

Sedation keeps patients comfortable during their dental procedures. Not all dentists offer appropriate sedation. At Peninsula Dental Implant Center, patients can ask about IV sedation, which administers sedatives into the bloodstream for immediate and ongoing relaxation during dental treatments. This option is often considered for those with moderate to severe dental fears who may otherwise avoid their treatment due to anxieties.

 

Benefits of IV sedation

IV sedation is:

  • Effective
  • Perfect for long procedures
  • Usable at every appointment
  • Best for addressing severe anxieties

 

How it works

IV sedation administers sedation intravenously right into the bloodstream for fast-acting results. Patients who undergo IV sedation will feel extremely relaxed and in many cases, may fall asleep during their dental treatment. This allows Dr. Shivani Gupta to perform treatments faster with less interruptions. Patients with anxieties may have procedures done that they have been delaying for years due to their dental fears.

 

Consider IV sedation for your next appointment

If you struggle with severe dental anxieties and are interested in learning more about IV sedation, contact the dental practice of Dr. Shivani Gupta. The team at Peninsula Dental Implant Center works closely with patients to help them decide what sedation method is appropriate for their specific needs. IV sedation is often chosen for those who are extremely fearful of the dentist or even for patients undergoing extensive procedures. Call (650) 567-5885 today to schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Shivani Gupta and discuss the advantages of using IV sedation for dental procedures. Her practice is located at 1201 St. Francis Way.

 

Dental implants may require a sinus lift procedure for placement

04/18/17 | Categories: Dental Implants

Dental implants with sinus lift

Dental implants are a wonderful option for many of our patients at the Peninsula Dental Implant Center. However, when it comes to placing dental implants in the upper jaw, it is important for the dentist to x-ray the mouth to check for the location of the sinuses. Patients may require an extra procedure known as a sinus lift.

 

What is a sinus lift?

A sinus lift is a procedure dedicated to addressing the location of the sinus cavities prior to placing dental implants. The maxillary sinus is sometimes too close to the upper jaw to allow the implants to be successfully placed. There is no “standard size” for this cavity so it is important for Dr. Shivani Gupta to have x-rays completed to see if there needs to be augmentation performed. The augmentation itself involves the placement of bone into the area to provide a solid foundation for the implant to derive its strength and durability. This is often done for dental implants placed on the upper arch.

 

Benefits of a sinus lift

The advantages of having a sinus lift procedure performed at Peninsula Dental Implant Center include:

  • The ability to place a dental implant into the upper jaw
  • The chance to have a permanent tooth replacement that does not become problematic
  • Eliminating the need for alternative tooth replacement options such as dentures or bridges

 

Contact our practice for more information

Dr. Shivani Gupta and the team of Peninsula Dental Implant Center believe implants can be a great way for patients to replace one or more teeth. If you have considered dental implants on the upper jaw but require a sinus lift, our dedicated professionals provide this and so much more! Contact our practice today by calling (650) 567-5885 or visiting us at 1201 Francis Way in San Carlos, CA.

 

Computer Guided Implant San Francisco Bay Area

Implant Dentist in San Carlos, CA describes guided implant surgery


Dental implants are a popular choice for men and women seeking restorative solutions for their smiles. Missing teeth affect function, beauty, and health of the smile. By addressing this issue as soon as it occurs, patients avoid many problems that may be an aftereffect of lost teeth.

  • Accuracy is essential to the placement of dental implants. Dr. Shivani Gupta and the team at Peninsula Dental Implant Center in San Carlos are dedicated to ensuring patients enjoy the benefits of precision placement. At her practice, tools such as CT scans, intra oral scans and implant planning software are used for fabricating the implant guides. These guides improve the placement of implants for better function and more successful surgeries.

 

  • CT scans, known as “computer tomography,” are tools used to enable medical professionals to see all the structures within the mouth that impact the placement of a dental implant. This includes viewing the sinuses and bone necessary for proper implantation. Avoiding structures such as the sinuses reduces the risk of problems later on.

 

  • With this accurate imaging technique, Dr. Shivani Gupta uses the computer-guided implant surgery for the best possible placement. Implants placed in this manner have a very high success rate. The dentist determines the best angle to place the implants, as well as the depth. This method also has very few risks and ensures complete accuracy throughout the process.

 

The process of placing implants is extensive, but with the right team of professionals, can be simple and problem-free. Our team ensures patients have the opportunity to reclaim their confident smile with restorative solutions fit for their specific needs and budgets. Dental implants do require patients to have sufficient bone structure and a healthy mouth, and this is assessed during the initial evaluation appointment.

 

If you live in the Peninsula area of Northern California and are ready to work with a dedicated practitioner to discuss the possibility of placing dental implants, contact the team at Peninsula Dental Implant Center today by calling (650) 567-5885. This team of professionals is here to assist in a wide range of restorative dentistry procedures and welcomes new patients.

 

Computer-guided implant surgery is the most effective way for patients in the San Carlos, California area to enhance their smiles with titanium dental implants.

 

San Carlos area dentist describes A4 complete implant solution

12/15/15 | Categories: Dental Implants

 

At the Peninsula Dental Implant Center, Dr. Shivani Gupta and her team are dedicated to helping others achieve a restored smile after tooth loss. This means helping individuals with a variety of solutions based on their specific needs. When patients have lost all of the permanent teeth or are considering extraction of the entire dental arch, they are often excited to learn about using dental implants to support full dentures. This procedure is known as all-on-four dental implants.

 

A4 complete implants are restorations combining the strength and durability of dental implants with the benefits of full dentures. Dr. Shivani Gupta will place four dental implants along the dental arch into the bone. These will act as the foundation for the dentures. Temporary dentures are worn over these implants as the process of osseointegration occurs. This process can take several weeks and allows the implant to be solidified with the bone. Once this is complete, our team can develop the permanent full dentures used with the implants and allow patients to fully repair the function and beauty of their smiles.

 

A4 complete implants are the best way to achieve a full restored smile with stability. Full dentures alone may be difficult to keep in place with natural suction or dental adhesives alone. The dental implants give the dentures the strength they need to function properly.

 

Our practice offers a wide range of treatments for our patients revolving around dental implants and smile restoration, including: 

 

  • Bone and block grafting
  • Guided implant surgery
  • Single or multiple implants
  • Tooth extraction
  • “Teeth in a day”
  • Sinus lifts
  • Immediate implantation

 

If you reside in San Carlos, Redwood City, Belomont or Peninsula area and want to learn more about how A4 complete implant solution work in repairing the smile, contact the team of the Peninsula Dental Implant Center today at 650-567-5885. We can assess your current dental situation and determine if this particular process of restoration is appropriate for your needs. We can also discuss alternatives which can be used, as well as, ways of preparing the smile for placement including bone grafting.
