These are some of the specific treatments we provide:

Emergency visits

It is time to call a dental office to be seen ASAP. There can be several reasons, including:

  • An untreated tooth has started to hurt or developed an abscess
  • A crown came off
  • A portion of the tooth broke off
  • A dog chewed on your denture (dogs do that)

X-rays, Comprehensive Exam

It is the visual and radiographic examination of the mouth. Based on this evaluation, a diagnosis is obtained and a treatment plan is recommended and discussed with the patient.

Adult and Child Prophylaxis

This procedure includes the removal of dental plaque and tartar at and above the gumline by hand and ultrasonic scaling. Also, coronal polishing, flossing, mouthwash, and oral hygiene instructions are provided to patients.

Scaling and Root Planing

This treatment is recommended to (mostly) adult patients who have periodontal disease or periodontitis. This condition affects the gums and tissue that keep teeth in place, such as periodontal ligament and bone. The procedure includes the removal of tartar from deep pockets and planing of the affected root structure.

Periodontal Maintenance

Patients who had SRP (Scaling and Root Planing) need to continue with periodontal maintenance cleanings every 3–4 months to continue combating periodontal disease (periodontitis) and to help patients with follow ups on their oral hygiene techniques and routines.


Recommended treatment for small carious lesions. Caries or tooth decay is caused due to poor oral hygiene and poor diet (rich in sugar). It starts with demineralization of the tooth enamel, then can rapidly move to deeper tissues, such as dentin and pulp. 


This treatment is recommended for many and different reasons: when a tooth is vulnerable to break due to an existing large filling, recurrent decay (under an existing filling or crown), broken tooth, after a root canal therapy, excessive wear or superficial enamel cracks that causes sensitivity, for aesthetic reasons, etc.

Root Canal Therapy

When the pulp (where the nerve is) of a tooth has been affected by deep caries (cavity), severe wear, trauma, etc. a root canal therapy is necessary if the tooth can be restored and the patient wants to keep it. If treatment is not done, decay continues growing deep until it destroys most of the tooth structure. Pain, abscess, swelling of the surrounding tissue – including the face, can occur most of the times.


When there is a poor prognosis and the tooth is unrestorable, extraction is recommended and replacement options are discussed with the patient.

Missing Teeth – Replacement Options

Bridge – Is a fixed prosthesis supported by one, two, or more adjacent teeth depending of the number, size, location of the teeth that need to be replaced.

Implant – Is a cylinder post inserted in the maxillary or mandibular bone and functions as the root of a tooth. Once it is osseointegrated (accepted and healed in the bone area), an abutment and a crown are screwed/cemented to it.

Bone Grafting – If there is not enough bone to support the implant, bone can be added by a process called bone grafting. Bone substitutes – either synthetic or natural – can be placed under the gums. Over a period of a few months, these materials replace missing bone and can stimulate new bone growth.

Denture – A partial denture is a removable prosthesis that is recommended when replacing teeth by implant, or bridge is not an option for the patient. A full denture is a removable prosthesis for a patient who has lost all teeth.

Dr. Blanco is the best! We've been coming here since before she took over this practice and makes you feel so comfortable and welcome. She's very detailed in what she does, I can't say enough about her. Thank you for everything Dr. Blanco.
I am absolutely terrified of needles, Especially near my face, not to mention in my mouth. But Dr. Blanco was so good - no excellent - at administering novocaine and the procedure that I’d recommend her and her practice abd staff to anyone who is afraid of going to the dentist. Everyone is calming, professional and kind. And… they saw me almost the day I called. Unheard of these days! Thank you Blanco Dental! Miche Evans
