Dr. Maryam Jackson is a holistic dentist in Orange, CA, who offers the same services as a general dentist. She and her team welcome patients of all ages and can address their oral health needs at every stage of life.
Dental Cleanings and Exams
Dr. Jackson recommends twice-yearly preventive dental cleanings and exams. When we see you every six months for these services, we can monitor your oral health and treat any cavities or gum disease promptly to protect your oral and overall health.
Gum Disease Treatment
Gum disease affects nearly half of US adults over age 30; after age 65, the number increases to 70 percent. Without treatment, gum disease significantly increases your risk for numerous serious systemic health problems, including heart disease, diabetes, stroke, and Alzheimer's.
If we find gingivitis or advanced gum disease called periodontitis, our hygienist will customize a treatment plan to get your oral health back on track.
BPA-Free White Ceramic Fillings
At Smiles of Orange, we are a metal-free dental office and use only 100 percent BPA-free ceramic material for our tooth fillings. If you have chemical sensitivities, we partner with an outside lab that does compatibility testing and can determine which material is suitable for you.
SMART Mercury Filling Removal
If you still have old metal amalgam fillings, we would be happy to talk to you about removing them safely. Dr. Jackson performs SMART mercury filling removal following stringent protocols to ensure your safety during the process.
Ozone is a highly active form of oxygen and potent antimicrobial that acts as a disinfectant. Non-invasive ozone therapy is used in dentistry to kill harmful bacteria and leave healthy bacteria to do their job.
If you need more information about ozone therapy and how we use it, check out this helpful FAQ that explains its use in more detail.
Myofunctional Pre-Orthodontic Treatment for Children
We recommend myofunctional appliances for children to correct oral habits like tongue thrusting and mouth breathing that may be the underlying cause of crooked teeth and underdeveloped jaw. These appliances work with a child's natural growth patterns to retrain oral muscles and exert gentle force to align teeth properly.
Dental Crowns and Bridges
If you have a broken tooth or extensive decay, we may recommend a dental crown to restore it. Crowns are tooth-shaped caps that we customize to cover a tooth to protect it and restore chewing function.
Our custom dental bridges replace one or several teeth and consist of artificial teeth anchored to adjacent teeth with dental crowns.
Root Canal Treatment
If you experience tooth pain, extreme tooth sensitivity, jaw pain, or swelling, you may have a tooth infection requiring prompt root canal treatment. Dr. Jackson is highly-skilled and incredibly gentle and will ensure your comfort during the procedure. We also offer sedation dentistry if you experience dental anxiety.
If a tooth is badly decayed, infected, or damaged to the point that it is unsalvageable, we recommend removing it to spare you further pain and protect your general health and wellness. Rest assured, you couldn't be in better hands than with Dr. Jackson and her skilled and compassionate team on your side.
