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, 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 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!!!!
Was so positive I was totally surprised. Had extraction with implant. Very minimal discomfort & minimal swelling. So relieved it is amazing.
Dr. Joy Smith is an a amazing dentist. She was able to place an implant with success in an area of my mouth that a previous implant from another dental practice had failed. She really cares a great deal about her clients. They are a very busy office but I never feel like I do not know what is going on. There can be a wait at times but because of the deep knowledge, years of experience and great care Dr. Joy Smith has taken with me I would highly recommend her services. Hope you find her to be as great a dentist as I have.
The doctor and her staff’s bedside manner is really pleasant. They take really good care of me.
