A beautiful smile can be your best asset. Schedule a consultation with Drs. Meester and Olafsen in San Diego, CA to learn more about the following services.
Healthy gums are pink and cover the tooth roots but gum disease can slowly destroy these elements of your smile, causing gums to recede. With the Pinhole Surgical Technique™, Drs. Meester and Olafsen can reposition your gums without scalpels or sutures. You can enjoy an immediately healthier smile in a single session.
Tooth loss can negatively impact all phases of your life but there are several restoration options available. Dentures are a successful method of tooth replacement that can replace one tooth or a full mouth. Partial dentures and full dentures are removable restorations that can restore your appearance and your ability to chew properly.
Regular cleanings and checkups are an integral part of preventative care. They help maintain the health of your teeth and gums. Oral cancer screenings and examinations allow Drs. Meester and Olafsen to identify trouble areas for early intervention and also afford you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about treatment or proper oral hygiene.
While TMJ may be best identified with jaw pain, the joint disorder is also known to cause ringing in the ears, dizziness, and facial swelling, among other symptoms. Living with chronic pain can sap your energy and your enjoyment of life. Drs. Meester and Olafsen offer TMJ treatments to lessen pain and inflammation.
