What is happening today? As the sports seasons continue, it is time to have your custom fitted sports mouth guard fabricated by Dr. Richard O'Braitis. Each year I fit the Mission Viejo Varsity Football team with custom fitted sports mouth guards. As a dentist in Mission Viejo, I have custom fitted over 500 athletes with their sports guards. These are the same custom sports guards worn by professional and college athletes. A dentist is the only one that can fit an athlete with sports guards. Impressions by the dentist, in this case a dentist in Mission Viejo, are used to create a mold wear a custom sports guard is fabricated. A sports guard made by a dentist provides ideal protection, allows for better communication and breathing, and will not dislodge during contact.
My office is located in Missio Viejo, California. Mission Viejo, California is a community in South Orange County of Southern California. As a dentist in the community of Mission Viejo, I am proud to continue to provide care to Newport Beach, Ladera Ranch, Rancho Santa Margarita, Aliso Viejo, Lake Forest, and Coto De Caza.

Today at the office was very interesting. I had three patients that all needed to have root canals. And each situation is different. If you have or have not had a root canal, let me tell you about each case. the first patient had a crown on her lower right second molar. The porcelain crown has been hurting for months. As we treated the tooth with root canal therapy, we found an inflamed nerve. The second patient had a crown that was placed several months ago. The tooth was previously cracked prior to have a crown placed. (treatment options for restoring a tooth include porcelain crowns, ceramic crowns, gold crowns, veneer crowns) For this second patient, his nerve simply became inflamed after treatment and the nerve was not going to get better. The last patient that needed a root canal today didn't have a crown on the tooth. her tooth has been hot and cold sensitive for several months. We used sensodyne tooth paste. When we began treating the tooth, the nerve was inflamed.
When it comes down to it, if your tooth is sensative to hot, cold, pressure, give our office a call at 949-770-9533. Listen to your body. Root canals have a bad reputation because some patients delay treatment due to fear, time, or finances. We can help with all of them.

White teeth and a beautiful smile bestows confidence in ourselves. In dentistry, being a cosmetic dentist in Orange County is very rewarding and fulfilling. I have had the opportunity to whiten, brighten, preserve, and enhance smiles throughout Orange County. These patients come from communities such as Ladera Ranch, Rancho Santa Margarita, Coto De Caza, Foothill Ranch, Mission Viejo, San Juan Capistrano, and San Clemente.
The above patient wanted to whiten her smile. She started treatment with Zoom whitening and completed her treatment with veneers and a niteguard to prevent her veneers from fracturing in the future. Veneers are a conservative method to complete a smile makeover. The front portion of the teeth are lightly reshaped. The enamel of the tooth is preserved to allow for bonding of the veneer ( resin, lumineer, da vinci, porcelain, ceramic) It is important to note that whitening teeth with zoom laser whitening procedure allows for optimal results. Smiles are evaluated using digital x-rays and intraoral cameras. Zoom whitening can lighten, brighten, and whiten a smile by 7-8 shades in one hour. Gums are evaluated to assure the absence of gum disease ( gingivitis, or Periodontitis).
