Los Angeles Family Dentist Offers Dental Care for All Oral Health Needs

It is a relief when you can have all your oral health concerns addressed in one location by one family dentist who knows all about you and your dental history. At Downtown Dental, we offer the following dental care:
  • Cosmetic Dentistry: Ready to beautify your teeth? Your Los Angeles family dentist offers the treatments that will give you a celeb-worthy smile makeover. From customized porcelain veneers to careful teeth whitening, precise pinhole gum rejuvenation to discreet Invisalign, you can upgrade your smile on your timeline and budget.
  • General Dentistry: Keeping your teeth clean is the foundation of good oral health. Our general dentistry services include regular check-ups and teeth cleanings, which are always accompanied by an oral cancer screening and digital x-rays as needed. More specialized general dentistry services include TMJ/TMD treatment, gum disease treatment, and root canal therapy.
  • Restorative Dentistry: If a tooth is damaged, decayed, or broken, it needs to be repaired. If a tooth is missing, it needs to be replaced. Our restorative dentistry services include permanent dental implants, natural-looking porcelain crowns, secure bridges, and tooth-colored fillings to return your teeth to proper working order in both form and function.
  • Sedation Dentistry: If patients suffer with extreme dental anxiety or are undergoing several dental treatments at one time, we often recommend sedation dentistry to ease their stress and make the appointment go faster. Oral conscious sedation is a sedative taken before a procedure that allows you to stay alert throughout the treatment. IV sedation is the deepest form of relaxation and may cause you to doze off lightly. Both types of sedation require accompaniment to and from our dental office. Laughing gas is also available.
  • Emergency Dentistry: Dental emergencies are never convenient, but it helps to know that you have a family dentist who is always at the ready when you need them. Whether you have a severe toothache, knocked out tooth, damaged dental work, or broken cosmetic dental work, always contact us to discuss the problem and find out if you need to be seen right away or if treatment can wait.

Success Stories

I actually owe a debt to Downtown Dental because they caught my oral cancer. I went to them because I had a bump on my tongue and thankfully they ordered a biopsy immediately (same day). The staff has been wonderful to me (even sending me a get well card during my cancer treatment). They do great work - the crowns are made in the office to save you time - and they are very upfront on pricing. You know exactly what you will pay. They are also very flexible on appointments. And they validate parking! They also have taken COVID precautions very seriously. Very professional and well-organized. Highly recommend them.
The staff here on its own deserves the five stars. Everyone is so friendly and take there time to get to know you as a patient. There very easy to work with on what’s best for you in the long run with insurance and dental care. On top of them making you feel comfortable, you can tell that they actually care about you and your dental health. The parking is also super easy and they validate so you don’t have to pay. I’d highly recommend coming here!

Since then, I am encouraging everyone to check out Downtown Dental, they really are amazing.

Here at downtown Dental, we take oral health and cancer screenings very serious. This month is November and it's the month of oral health cancer awareness and screenings. Every patient we examined thoroughly, we look and we check their lips, tongue and we check for any abnormalities or bumps. At home you should also check to make sure that everything looks okayLeava is going to demonstrate what in oral health cancer screening is and what we examine. So, we first start off by checking all the lips. We make sure that the lips look healthy and that we palpate them, which is touching them and making sure that there's nothing anormal. Then we go into the mucosa and check the cheeks. We're going to look and check the hard palate as well as the soft palate. This might tickle a little. We checked the posterior of the tongue. Do you, Viola, go ahead and say, aaaaaa. We check the lateral sides of the tongue. Go ahead and sit your tongue showed up great. And we also check the floor of the mouth. Get the tongue to the roof of your mouth. Good all clear. Oral cancer is especially important to check the patients who are smokers, alcohol drinkers and we thank you for watching the video.
