If you’re searching for an advanced dentist in Huntington Beach, CA, look no further than Dr. Jason Cellars at Seacliff Dental. Along with our team of dentists, hygienists, and assistants, Dr. Cellars offers patients years of experience and expertise in the basics, like restorative and prosthetic dentistry. He also brings a wealth of study and experience in advanced dentistry, like cosmetics, orthodontics, oral surgery, and treating TMJ and jaw disorders. 

Advanced Dentistry Treatments 

Oral healthcare involves dental care, which is the identification of issues dealing with teeth, as well as soft-tissue concerns, like periodontal (gum) health and oral cancers. Advanced dentists add to these basic, general dentistry services by attending courses and studying how to identify and treat more specific and/or complex oral health conditions.

These include, but are not limited to:

Cosmetic Dentistry - The esthetics of a smile involve characteristics such as the balance of tooth size, shape, position, and color with other facial structures. Gum tissue is also pertinent to cosmetic dentistry. Too much makes teeth look very small; too little can make teeth appear very large. With treatments that include porcelain veneers, cosmetic bonding, white restorations, orthodontics, gum contouring, and teeth whitening, advanced dentists bring harmony and beauty to virtually any smile. 

Orthodontics - While orthodontists are specialists in this area, a general dentist with advanced training in orthodontics can provide complete treatment plans for orthodontic patients. One popular option Dr. Cellars offers in Huntington Beach is Invisalign, a “clear braces” or “clear aligner” orthodontic treatment option. With Invisalign, the patient wears removable, clear acrylic aligners that straighten teeth incrementally over the course of 9-18 months. 

Oral Surgery - Oral surgeons are specialists in oral and maxillofacial surgery. However, general dentists who have studied and have hands-on experience in oral surgery can also provide surgical treatments. Common oral surgeries include, but aren’t limited to: gum reshaping, implant post installment, and tooth extractions.

TMJ/Jaw Disorders/Facial Pain - Perhaps one of the lesser known advanced dental services is the identification and treatment of temporomandibular joint disorders, called TMJ or TMD. Jaw disorders cause facial pain and many other nagging symptoms that steal quality of life and can harm oral health. Dr. Cellars studied at the Dawson Institute, a respected and renowned institution for cosmetic and TMJ treatments. With non-surgical intervention, he can often reduce or eliminate a patient’s jaw pain.
