Los Altos: (650) 948-0200
At Anew Dentistry in Los Altos, we make every effort to create a friendly, patient centered environment. We work together to provide comprehensive dental care for children, adults, and seniors. We treat each patient like family. We are a small private practice and are not affiliated to any large dental corporation. This means that we can focus on individual patient care. Whether your dental needs are a complete exam and cleaning, a full mouth restoration, or anything in between, we promise to provide you with the best care. Although we do offer same-day appointments when available, we encourage making appointments as far in advance as possible. Our staff will be happy to answer any questions you have regarding scheduling and payment arrangements.
As a practice, we believe that prevention and education are the keys to optimal dental health. We aim to practice “dental health care” rather than treat “dental disease." Therefore our dentist completes thorough exams – checking the overall health of your teeth and gums, performing VELscope® advanced oral cancer screening, and taking digital x-rays when necessary. But we are not only focused on the beauty of your smile, we’re also concerned about your health. A review of your medical history can help us stay informed of your overall health, any new medications, and any illnesses that may impact your dental health.
Additionally, we are committed to maintaining infection control standards and environmental safety. To protect our patients and ourselves, we follow sterilization and cross contamination processes using standards recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC). To protect the environment, we utilize an EPA approved water purification system, amalgam trap systems and employ a waste company to eliminate hazardous materials.
Our digital x-ray system is designed to minimize radiation exposure and assist with diagnosis and treatment planning. Our intraoral camera will allow you to visualize and assist with education.
Velscope Oral Cancer Screening
The VELscope Vx® is the most powerful tool available for assisting in the discovery of precancerous or cancer in the mouth. Because the VELscope Vx® assists in early detection, cancer can be caught before it has time to spread, potentially saving lives through less invasive, more effective treatment.The VELscope®'s distinctive blue-spectrum light causes the soft tissues of the mouth to naturally fluoresce. Healthy tissues fluoresce in distinctive patterns — patterns that are visibly disrupted by trauma or disease. Using the VELscope®, a wide variety of oral abnormalities can be discovered — often before they're visible to the unassisted eye. Discovering soft tissue abnormalities is particularly important in the fight against oral cancer.
CEREC® (one visit dental crowns) - A technological innovation is the "Computer-assisted design-Computer-assisted manufacture" crown, or "CAD-CAM." CAD/CAM dentistry such as CEREC® is the future of dentistry. Utilizing modern technology, our office can produce an accurate, safe, biocompatible dental crown, inlay, onlay in just one visit. These CEREC® crowns are milled out of different types of ceramic material.
Dental implants are currently the ideal treatment option for replacing one or more missing teeth. Rather than resting on the gum line like removable dentures, or using adjacent teeth as anchors like fixed bridges, dental implants are long-term replacements for single or missing teeth. Previously patients had no alternative for missing teeth other than to employ a fixed bridge or removable denture to restore their ability to eat, speak clearly and smile. Removable dentures are uncomfortable and often appear artificial. Fixed bridges are more comfortable but are often prepared at the expense of adjacent teeth. New decay (cavities), periodontal (gum) disease and other factors often lead to bridgework failure. For these reasons, fixed bridges and removable dentures usually need to be replaced every seven to 15 years. Type your paragraph here.
Invisalign® takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements your dentist or orthodontist plans out for you. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You just pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete. You’ll achieve a great smile with little interference in your daily life. The best part about the whole process is that most people won't even know you're straightening your teeth.
