Bruxism is a condition involving extreme teeth grinding or clenching.

Some patients may be unaware that it is happening since it often becomes second nature.
Dental Fillings - Mercury Free
Dental fillings are used by our dentists in order to seal and protect teeth that have been treated for tooth decay. Fillings can also be used for damages teeth that are broken or cracked. They are highly durable and make of a tooth-colored material which is why they are a great, natural-looking option for healing teeth.
Dental sealants can be used in patients of all ages, but they are most often used in younger patients. The reason for this is that they are sometimes used in baby teeth to protect them for when the permanent teeth arrive or can be used to protect permanent teeth since our younger patients have a long life ahead of them! Sealants can be placed quickly and easily, are clear and are non-invasive.
Dentures are sometimes called fake teeth and are removable. There are also two types of dentures: full dentures and partial dentures. Patients that have full dentures are those that need complete tooth replacement, and patients with partial dentures only require some tooth replacement. One of the greatest benefits of having dentures is the fact that you enjoy having a full set of teeth again.
Dental bridges are used by our Granada Hills dentists to replace one or more missing teeth. They can also be fixed to that they can stay in place permanently or they can be removable, depending on your needs. Our staff will ensure the proper fit in order to make the dental bridge as comfortable as possible. Fixed bridges also eliminate the risk of being misplaced.
Dental crowns can be used to restore teeth that have been treated for decay or damages. They are placed on top of the existing natural tooth in order to restore and maintain any treatments that were completed. Crowns are virtually undetectable since they look just like natural teeth.
