Providing Warm, Friendly and Compassionate Dentistry

Its one thing to find a dental office that meets your needs, it’s another thing entirely when you find an office that has the capabilities to go above and beyond expectations. That is exactly what you’ll find with the Dental Faculty Associates.

All of the doctors in the practice are either current or Alumni of Loma Linda University School of Dentistry faculty staff. This means not only are they qualified to meet any dental need, they are also up to date on the latest advances and theories as well. It’s certainly worth the effort to choose a dental practice with the best and the brightest.

Not only are all of the doctors practicing dentistry while instructing the next generation of dentists, collectively, they were named the “Top Dentists in the Inland Empire” for 2014.

As if this weren’t enough, the Dental Faculty Associates believe convenience for the patient is a high priority. For this reason, evening hours are available to accommodate most schedules. Also on the subject of comfort and convenience, sedation and sleep dentistry are offered. All patients are assured that the proper type of sedation will be used as medically indicated, as well as for the comfort of the patient. In the office, the doctors and staff understand that dental procedures can be anxiety inducing for some patients, and it is their goal to ensure no one feels any unnecessary stress during their treatment.

Along with the doctors at Dental Faculty Associates, the staff is experienced, friendly, and compassionate. It is their job to facilitate relaxation, while caring for patients. When you add all of these factors together, there is plenty of evidence for choosing Dental Faculty Associates for your dental needs in Loma Linda.

Services Provided layers

+ Implant Dentistry

A dental implant is actually a root replacement, and unlike the root of a tooth, it is actually fused to the bone of the jaw. A crown is attached to the implant and becomes a stand­alone tooth, functioning and appearing just like the natural tooth you have lost. By contrast, a fixed bridge is a tooth restoration that is fixed in place by attaching to the natural adjacent teeth, which provide support on either side.

+ Cosmetic Dentistry

From subtle changes to major repairs, your dentist can perform a variety of procedures to improve your smile. There are many techniques and options to treat teeth that are discolored, chipped, misshapen or missing. Your dentist can reshape your teeth, close spaces, restore worn or short teeth or alter the length of your teeth. Common procedures include bleaching, bonding, crowns, veneers and reshaping and contouring. These improvements are not always just cosmetic. Many of these treatments can improve oral problems, such as your bite.

+ Crowns

A dental crown is a tooth-­shaped cap that completely covers the visible portion of a natural tooth above the gum line. Their purpose is to restore the natural tooth’s shape and size, strength, and to improve its appearance.

+ Bridges

A dental bridge is made up of two anchoring teeth on either side of a gap ­ these are called abutment teeth. Inside the gap sits the false tooth, called a pontic, which can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials. Adversely, a dental implant can be used to replace multiple teeth without the support of adjacent healthy teeth. Implants are fused to the jawbone and become a permanent fixture, lasting a lifetime with little maintenance required.
