Frequently Asked Questions
We recommend visiting us twice a year to maintain healthy teeth and gums. Even if you brush and floss daily, there is buildup, bacteria, and stains that you can’t remove. We can detect early signs of decay, gum disease, and oral pathology with regular checkups. Identifying these problems early can help prevent serious problems, pain, and extensive dental work.
If you’re experiencing extreme pain, excessive bleeding, or an injury resulting in a loose or knocked out tooth, these situations are considered dental emergencies and should be taken care of right away. Call us today to make an appointment and our experienced team will handle your emergency with care.
Gum disease (Also known as gingivitis or periodontal disease) is the number one cause of tooth loss today. Bleeding gums are the first sign that there may be a problem with the gums. Puffy, tender red gums are also a sign that there is an infection present. Gum disease is caused by plaque, and if plaque is not removed on a daily basis it can cause significant damage to your gums as well as the bone surrounding your teeth. Routine and regular visits to your dentist are the best way to prevent gum disease or catch it during its early stages, before too much damage has been caused. If you are suffering from periodontal disease, give us a call today to go over your options.
What Our Patients Are Saying
"I was in San Diego for vacation and had an onlay crack and fall off of my molar. This is my mother-in-law's dentist and she was able to get me an emergency appointment on Christmas Eve. The entire office was friendly, professional and efficient. I was able to get a temporary fix on my tooth that will hold until I can back home to my own dentist. Highly recommended."
"Simply, Dr. Christiansen and his staff are THE best! I've gotten fillings, some teeth bonding, a night guard done here (yeah, my teeth are far from perfect) and have been extremely satisfied with every visit. It's evident Dr. Christiansen cares about his patients and always provides great recommendations if you're looking to fix your teeth in any way. Highly recommend him!"
"Of all the dentists that I have seen over the years, Dr. Christiansen is absolutely, hands down, the best! His staff is super friendly and his office is calm, upbeat, and sits atop a ridge. On nice days, the windows are open so you get a nice breeze. He provides all the tools needed to calm his patients including music, TV, sunglasses to dim the light, and headphones. Both my husband and I had the experience of falling to sleep in his chair."
"Another visit, and another solution!! Crown broke off leaving me with a hideous space in front of my mouth!! No problem!! Dr Christensen saw me the very next day ad solved my unsightly problem. I'm so grateful!!!!! I know putting out this information will bring more patients.....but I may as well share with the world1!! Thank you Dr. Christensen!!!!!"
