We are proud to offer the most comprehensive, best complete health dentistry and dental cleanings near San Marcos, Oceanside, Encinitas, and beyond. When you're an Allred Dental patient, you reap the benefits of not just healthy teeth and gums, but a healthy body.
Our team offers the following preventive services and diagnostic technologies at our San Marcos dental office:
It is our goal to detect dental problems early so that less invasive treatment options can be the norm for patients. That is why Dr. Allred uses digital x-rays to see beyond the exterior of the teeth and gums to find dental problems, such as tooth decay and cavities, bone loss, tooth impaction, cysts, and abscesses. With digital x-rays, Dr. Allred can study your teeth and the soft tissues and bones of your mouth to evaluate what treatment options may be available to you.
Cone Beam 3D CT
Our team uses this cutting-edge dental technology for precise diagnosis and dental treatment planning. This special type of imaging tool also emits less radiation, for a healthier, more rapid assessment process.
Our cone beam 3D imaging system is used for dental services like:
Professional Teeth Cleanings (Prophylaxis)
To protect your teeth and ensure that they are healthy, Dr. Allred provides routine dental cleanings. He recommends that patients receive cleanings at least twice a year to prevent disease and other oral health concerns.
For the cleaning, Dr. Allred uses professional tools to eradicate plaque and tartar buildup from the teeth. He will then polish the teeth to help remove stains and discoloration. In some instances, a fluoride treatment may be included to strengthen the enamel of the teeth. With dental cleanings at Allred Dental, patients experience improved dental health and take preventative measures with their oral health in the future.
If your teeth are not fitting together properly, oral issues may occur including damage to your teeth and gum, as well as pain in the jaw joint. Dr. Allred performs a bite analysis when a patient is experiencing a bad bite or if they have an occlusion disorder.
Using state-of-the-art technology, Dr. Allred can measure the stability and the level of force exerted by each tooth. He can also evaluate how all parts of the mouth and jaw are working together and what further issues may be causing an incorrect or painful bite. Our goal is to both diagnose the problem and provide sufficient treatment options to prevent future issues from occurring.
Tooth extractions can be performed in an emergency procedure after trauma or injury, or to prevent a future problem, such as with wisdom teeth removal.
Dr. Allred provides extractions for patients who are experiencing pain and discomfort or have an infection caused by a tooth that is damaged beyond repair. In some cases, a surgical extraction may be required, but simple extractions are also performed if the tooth appears above the gum line.
Before any extraction, Dr. Allred will administer a dental exam and take digital x-rays to determine the extent of the damage.
Teeth-Strengthening Mineral Application
Our team applies a painless strengthening mineral treatment for patients of all ages to help support healthy tooth enamel. This treatment can re-enforce weak areas of tooth enamel, keeping them more resilient against bacteria.
Desensitizing Treatments for Sensitive Teeth
Are you sensitive to heat and cold? Do you avoid certain foods and drinks due to tooth sensitivity? If so, Dr. Allred can apply a special paste that works quickly. He can also give you tailored advice on how best to avoid developing tooth and gum sensitivity in the future.
Halitosis, more commonly known as persistent bad breath, can be a symptom of a more serious dental or medical issue. If you suffer from chronic halitosis, Dr. Allred will provide an oral health assessment and develop a treatment plan especially for you!
Athletic Mouth Guards
Custom athletic mouth guards are the best line of defense against tooth loss for athletes of all ages. As a bonus, they also protect the wearer from developing concussions.
