Welcome to the website of leading Sacramento dentist, Dr. Andrea Joy Smith! Whether you are looking for gum recession treatment, have periodontal disease, or wish to replace missing teeth with dental implants, Dr. Smith can help you. We offer a wide range of treatments to suit patients with different needs. Our site contains information on everything from the Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™) to mini dental implants. Take as much time as you need to look through the different pages and find the solution you are looking for!
Mini Dental Implants
Since Mini dental implants are much smaller than traditional implants, they can be placed in less time and are immediately functional. The smaller size requires less force to place and results in less trauma to surrounding bone. This means that less time is needed for healing, allowing the implants to become immediately functional. Mini dental implants are often used to hold removable dentures in place and eliminate problems such as slippage and bone deterioration.
Most gum recession treatments are considered invasive, as they involve cutting and removing tissue from one area and then attaching it to the gum line. PST™, however, involves only one small incision and no tissue removal. A tiny, pinhole sized entry point is made in the gum tissue so that special instruments can be used to loosen the tissue and stretch it over the exposed tooth root. Afterward, collagen strips are inserted through the entry point and used to hold the tissue in place. There is no need for scalpels or sutures.
Laser Periodontal Therapy (LAPT)
This is an innovative laser treatment that is used for various soft tissue procedures including periodontal disease treatment. Instead of using blades to remove tissue, a highly precise laser is used to vaporize only the affected tissue while leaving the healthy areas intact. The procedure is relatively short and must be performed once a week for about four weeks. We care about your oral health and offer advanced, high quality periodontal procedures to help you achieve your best smile.

Dr Smith's dental office is amazing! Always feel welcome and comfortable when going. The staff is friendly and attentive! And, Dr Smith and the staff's expertise are beyond impressive and I leave after each visit trusting in what they believe is best for my care! I don't ever want to change dentists again!!!
Dr. Smith, her staff and entire practice is first rate. I called to make an appointment for my husband who had an emergency and had been referred to Dr. Smith from his previous dentist in southern California. They got us right in and were extremely accommodating. We both felt like we were definitely in good hands and in the right place! Dr. Smith is definitely going to become a regular part of our dental care.
Dr. Smith is without a doubt the best Dentist l have ever had. She is knowledgeable, gentle and just a great person to be around. Didn't know that going to the Dentist could be this pleasant! The entire staff is so helpful and cheerful. My Keyhole surgery was a great success. Highly recommend it!
While it’s way to early to tell if the PST will deliver the desired results, I couldn’t be more pleased with Dr. Smith and her staff. Dr. Smith goes the extra mile. She helped with reducing some cost when she didn’t have to. Something my personal dentist of 35 years or so has never done, that I can recall.
I felt that not only was I going to a very good dentist, I met a new friend. Her staff was great and helped make me feel at ease. I only wish her practice was closer to home.
My wife who went with me and is in need of an implant was given consideration in the form of X-rays and evaluation at no expense to us.
I would highly recommend Dr. Smith to anyone in need of the many procedures she can provide.
We also met her husband who drove us back to the motel of which I remember little if anything. Being from the same state, he took the time to introduce himself prior to my PST and implant which was done during the same time frame. I had very little pain and really think I didn’t need the three Advil I took afterwards.
You can’t go wrong if your in need of dental services.
Dr Andrea Smith and her staff are the VERY BEST! Always excellent consistent service. No rushed feeling at all. Both her and her staff listen to what you want and doesn't try to fit each patient in the same cookie cutter. My smile is BEAUTIFUL and BRITE! I finally have the smile of my dreams. If you are looking for a spectacular dentist that is beyond knowledgeable in her craft but still affordable with great bedside manner and a staff that makes you feel invited and warm....DR A. SMITH IS THE DENTIST FOR YOU!!!!
