Tooth Preparation by Our Dental Specialists

Drs. Sheets, Paquette and Wu are specialist dentists who have had further training in the area of Prosthodontics, the rehabilitation of the mouth and replacement of teeth and other oral structures. By utilizing the dental microscope, they can magnify any area of the mouth and precisely restore damaged teeth to replicate natural beauty and function.

Well-fitting veneers, inlays, onlays and porcelain crowns will minimize sensitivity, prevent plaque build-up, and thus prevent future periodontal disease and tooth decay. Performing dentistry with high powered magnification allows Drs. Sheets, Paquette and Wu to give their patients the finest dentistry to last a lifetime!

Invisalign™ utilizes a set of custom fitted clear aligners to straighten your teeth without the use of traditional wire braces. Clear aligners provide added convenience for eating, brushing and flossing. The aligners are comfortable and easy to wear, and almost undetectable to others.

Invisalign™ treatment begins with a consultation with our dentist. Once determined that you are a candidate for Invisalign™, a model of your teeth will be created on the computer to provide a step-by-step customized plan. You will see a visual representation of what your teeth can look like upon completion of treatment. A new set of aligners is given to you every two weeks. Each aligner gently shifts your teeth into position. The amount of time and number of aligners worn varies depending upon your plan.

We can help you to achieve straight teeth and a beautiful, healthy smile with Invisalign™. We are dedicated to providing you with an enjoyable dental experience. It is our top priority to deliver high quality care in a comfortable and convenient setting.

We welcome new patients of all ages at our dental practice. Contact our Newport Beach dentists today for an Invisalign™ consultation.

Preparing to Take a Final Crown Preparation Impression

This video demonstrates the detail and care taken to capture the finish line or margin of an anterior crown preparation. Due to a failed previous full porcelain crown restoration that finished deep beneath the gumline, Drs. Paquette and Sheets show how the gum tissue was carefully retracted with a very delicate retraction cord and then the crown preparation was ready for the final impression to be taken. Notice how there was no trauma or surgery necessary as the dental microscope allowed the area to be visualized and precisely managed with minimal invasion of the biologically delicate gum tissues.

Presentation of Examination Findings by Dr. Cherilyn Sheets

At Sheets. Paquette and Wu we believe in treating not only your dental needs, but also ensuring we understand your overall health. Every patient has a comprehensive review of their medical history, head and neck oral cancer screening, periodontal examination, temporomandibular (TMJ) evaluation, and microscopic dental examination. This video documents Dr. Cherilyn Sheets reviewing the comprehensive examination findings with her patient and explains what all the results mean to her future oral health and well-being.

Chew on This: Foods for Healthy Teeth

No time to brush or floss your teeth? When brushing or flossing isn’t convenient, you can still keep your mouth feeling fresh by eating certain foods. When you’re on the go or in a hurry, try grabbing one of these foods to munch on to help fight plaque and keep your teeth healthy.

Cheese provides several benefits for your teeth, such as preserves and rebuilds tooth enamel, prevents plaque and balances your mouth’s acidity level. It also helps to produce saliva, which kills the bacteria that cause tooth decay and gum disease.

Tea contains polyphenols, which slows the growth of bacteria associated with tooth decay and gum disease. It prevents the bacteria in your mouth from turning sugar into plaque. Tea also fights the bacteria that cause bad breath.

Crunchy fruits and vegetables, such as apples, carrots and celery, require extra chewing which produces saliva. Saliva helps to neutralize bacteria that cause tooth decay. Also, chewing on naturally abrasive foods removes stuck food particles, massages gums and cleans between teeth.

Vitamin-rich foods containing calcium and phosphorus can help keep tooth enamel strong and healthy. Acidic foods may cause tiny lesions on tooth enamel. Calcium and phosphate help redeposit minerals back into these lesions.

Sugarless gum contains xylitol that helps to prevent plaque and aids in producing saliva. Chewing sugarless gum also keeps your breath smelling fresh.

Raisins contain phytochemicals, which fights bacteria that causes tooth decay. Some compounds in raisins also affect the growth of bacteria that is associated with gum disease.

Water is the best way to stimulate saliva, which is your body’s greatest defense against bacteria that cause plaque and cavities. If you can’t brush after eating, rinse your mouth with water to assist in preventing tooth decay.

It is important to have a balanced diet for your oral and overall health. While these foods help to combat plaque buildup and tooth decay, no food can take the place of daily brushing and flossing. It is vital to continue your daily oral hygiene regimen and keep up with regular scheduled appointment with our dentist.
