General and restorative dental care for Petaluma area patients found at Dental Care and Wellness of Sonoma County
General dentistry is the area in which the focus is on prevention. Though we go out of our way to help individual patients avoid dental disease, we also recognize that there may be instances in which restoration is necessary. When you visit Dr. Jurina Smida either for routine checkups and cleanings or for tooth repair or gum treatment, you can feel confident in the holistic approach taken to achieve optimal results.
Traditional dentistry operates with good intent. Preventative care, as well as restorative, is done with the purpose of promoting oral health. Looking primarily at basic prevention and the direct treatment of disease alone, however, falls short in leading a patient into better health and quality of life. Dr. Smida is a dentist who has undergone advanced training in Restorative and Esthetic Dentistry. Dr. Smida takes an integrative approach to dentistry that adheres to specific holistic principles such as:
  • Consider the entire being, mind, body and spirit, when conducting dental care
  • The avoidance of potentially harmful substances such as mercury and metal
  • The safe removal of harmful substances such as amalgam fillings and metal crowns or implants
  • Addressing malocclusion (bite problems) with intense focus that leads to successful correction
  • Look beyond the direct problem of decay or infection and consider the biological foundation for these and other problems
General and restorative dental care is anything but routine in our office. Petaluma area patients benefit immensely from our dedication to biocompatibility in all forms of care. Dr. Smida carefully considers the materials and techniques used in our practice, honoring her commitment to, “first do no harm.” Natural substances such as ozone are often incorporated into general and restorative procedures to enhance the outcome of care.
We use a laser cavity finder to identify vulnerability in the structure of a tooth or teeth. In addition, we use a laser to remove tooth decay. When necessary, we utilize the laser to prepare the surrounding enamel for the receipt of a filling, which is composed of a biocompatible material. The laser delivers energy in the form of light. It acts as a vaporizer of the tissue that it affects. This eliminates the need for drilling. There are several benefits of laser treatment for cavities. Lasers do not heat up, can reduce the need for anesthesia, minimize bleeding and swelling, and preserve healthy tooth structure during cavity removal.
Your smile, just like your body, requires personalized attention in order to reach optimal levels. Therefore, we utilize the safest and most effective technology for tooth decay and other oral health conditions. We support you in your efforts to keep your teeth, gums, and body healthy.
