Dr. Zschaschel has been dedicated to maintaining tooth health and oral hygiene, the foundation of general dentistry, since she began her career in 1997. Cleanings, root canals, fillings, bridges, crowns, extractions, and restoring implants are primary components of her general and restorative dentistry services. Dr. Zschaschel provides ample time for each patient to receive personalized care.
Dr. Zschaschel uses fillings to restore teeth damaged by decay back to their normal function and shape. She will first remove the decayed tooth material, clean the affected area, and place the filling material in the cleaned-out cavity. Fillings help prevent further decay by closing off any cracks or spaces where bacteria can enter.
Dr. Zschaschel uses root canal treatment when a cavity reaches the pulp of the tooth or when deep restorations or trauma to a tooth causes the nerve to be damaged.
Once the pulp is damaged, it becomes infected and cannot heal on its own. Symptoms are not always apparent but when they are, they include sensitivity to hot/cold or sweets, pain, swelling, pain to biting or pressure, and a bad taste in the mouth. Dr. Zschaschel can also extract teeth that need orthodontic correction or that are fractured, malpositioned, impacted, suffer from severe decay, advanced periodontal disease, infection, or abscess. Regular cleanings and checkups prevent and detect problems early. L.A. Dental Day Spa has all of your preventative and treatment needs covered.
Dr. Zschaschel is skilled at using crowns to restore, enhance, or cover teeth that are damaged or replace missing teeth. Crowns strengthen teeth and can dramatically improve their appearance, shape, and alignment. Dr. Zschaschel has used crowns to replace large fillings when there is little tooth structure remaining; protect weak teeth from fracturing; restore a fractured tooth; and cover a dental implant, a discolored, poorly shaped tooth, or a tooth that has had a root canal. Contact L.A. Dental Day Spa for your crown options.
Dr. Zschaschel also uses bridges to fill the space created by missing teeth. A bridge is one or more artificial teeth that are cemented into place using the teeth on either side of the bridge for support. A bridge replaces the missing tooth, both functionally and cosmetically. The materials used may be gold alloys, porcelain bonded to metal alloy, or all-ceramic material made to match your natural tooth color. The choice of material depends on requirements for strength, wear, and/or aesthetics. Contact L.A. Dental Day Spa to see if a bridge is right for you.
Restorative implants are designed to provide the foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. Patients who have lost teeth regain their ability to eat virtually anything, and know that teeth appear natural and are functional. Dr. Zschaschel ensures that her patients with dental implants can smile with confidence. Contact LA Dental Day Spa to learn more about implants.
