- Regular Exams – Dr. Giraldo will take the time to check each tooth one by one with her dental instruments to look for issues with your teeth that cannot be seen with an X-ray.
- Oral Cancer Screenings – Maintaining optimal oral health and identifying concerns such as cancer at an early stage to make treatment easier.
- X-rays – By using state-of-the-art digital X-ray systems, we can identify issues that cannot be seen on the surface of your teeth and gums.

Establishing good dental health habits early on is a great way to ensure that your children will take great care of their teeth in the future. Children can often show very early symptoms of gum disease and other long-lasting dental health conditions, so it’s important to identify and treat them as soon as possible while simultaneously coping with the ever-changing conditions in a child’s mouth.
We offer a wide range of children’s dentistry services including complex dental injuries, periodontal problems, tooth surface loss, tooth decay, and soft tissue conditions. We’re also more than happy to assist with phobias that are common in children visiting the dentist for the first time.
Inhalation sedation with nitrous oxide (N2O) and oxygen (O2) has been described as “representing the most nearly ‘ideal’ clinical sedative circumstance”. The equipment used for delivering “laughing gas” is quite simple. It consists of a supply of compressed gases and an apparatus that delivers the gases to the patient.
On the other hand, IV (intravenous) sedation involves administering the drug into the bloodstream during dental treatment. Unlike nitrous oxide, an IV sedation doesn’t put you to sleep but instead puts you into a deep state of relaxation. You remain conscious throughout IV sedation and you’ll be able to understand and respond to requests from your dentists. However, you might not remember anything at all, so it may seem as if you were asleep.
Laser dentistry can be a precise and effective way to perform many dental procedures. Laser dentistry techniques are extremely safe, comfortable, and drill-free. If you consider yourself somewhat of an anxious patient, laser dentistry is the best. The potential for laser dentistry to improve dental procedures rests with Dr. Doris Giraldo.
Laser dentistry is a precise way to perform dental procedures. At New Dimension Dentistry, we offer a range of procedures that require fewer shots of anesthesia, can be performed without sutures and minimizes bacterial infections. Waterlase can be used when performing tooth, bone and gum procedures, removing decay, general dentistry, root canals, and smile design.
The need for full mouth reconstruction may result from: Teeth that have been lost due to decay or trauma; Teeth that have been injured or fractured; Teeth that have become severely worn as a result of long-term acid erosion or grinding; Ongoing complaints of jaw, muscle, and headache pain requiring adjustments. Restorative procedures include:
- Bone Grafting – Taking a section of the bone from another area of your body and grafting it onto your jaw bone to provide support for dental implants.
- Dental Bridges – Bridging the gap created by one or more missing teeth, often made up of two or more crowns for teeth on either side of the gap.
- Dental Crowns – A dental crown caps a tooth or dental implant, often used when a large cavity could compromise the health of your tooth. Can improve the strength and appearance of teeth.
- Crown Lengthening – Reshaping excess gum and bone tissue to expose more of the natural tooth. Can be used to even the gum line or straighten the appearance of teeth for a natural smile.
- Dentures – Dentures are used for missing teeth that can be taken out and put back into the mouth. Modern dentures are very natural looking compared to the past.
- Full Mouth Reconstruction – A complete rebuilding or replacement of all the teeth in a patient’s mouth.
- Dental Implants – Metal posts or frames that are surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath the gums. When in place, they allow dentists to mount replacement teeth.
- Inlays and Onlays – Used when old fillings have to be removed or replaced.
- Root Canals – A procedure to repair and save a damaged and infected tooth by removing the damaged area, cleaning and disinfecting it, then filling it again.
- Soft Tissue Grafting – Used to treat gum recession by covering exposed roots or thickening existing gum tissue.
Preventive dentistry is the practice of caring for your teeth to keep them healthy. This helps to avoid cavities, gum disease, enamel wear, and more. There are many forms of preventive dentistry, such as daily brushing and regular dental cleanings. These practices are designed to ensure that teeth are clean, strong, and white. Preventive services include:
- Baby Bottle Tooth Decay – Baby bottle tooth decay is a condition that can destroy the primary teeth of infants and young children. It occurs when the teeth are exposed to sugary liquids such as baby formula, fruit juice, and breast milk. It frequently occurs in children up to the age of 3 when your baby exposes their teeth when drinking from a baby bottle. Despite being baby teeth that eventually fall out to make way for primary teeth, taking good care of these initial teeth can help ensure better dental care, facial development and also preserve space for adult teeth.
- Bruxism Treatment – Bruxism is a condition that describes the clenching together of the upper and lower teeth. It often develops at any age if the patient has a habit of grinding their teeth. To prevent this, night guards can be used.
- Periodontal Disease – Also known as gum disease, periodontal diseases such as gingivitis and periodontitis is a silent disease that will eventually lead to tooth loss and potentially strokes or cancer. Preventing periodontal disease with a treatment and hygiene plan is the best course of action.
