A general dentist specializes in preventive, restorative, and cosmetic dental services. But when it comes to finding a general dentist, San Francisco residents might feel lost or overwhelmed by their options. That’s why Dr. Mina Levi of California Dental Innovations wants to make it easy for you by being the most qualified general dentist San Francisco has to offer.
In this article, we’ll explore three ways in which Dr. Mina is setting the standard for contemporary dental care. Additionally, you’ll see why her expertise and innovation have earned her a much-coveted 5-star rating on Google.
New Dental Technology and Techniques
The hallmark of a great general dentist is a desire to adapt to new dental technology and techniques. Dr. Mina Levi is no exception to this rule because she prioritizes treatments and procedures that are ultramodern and minimally invasive.
Some of the technology and techniques that she has seamlessly incorporated into her practice include:
- Intraoral cameras: In the past, dentists painstakingly examined patients’ mouths using just their eyes and sharp dental tools. However, dentists today use intraoral cameras that are less invasive, more precise, and quick and easy to use.
- Digital x-rays: Traditional x-rays emit harmful radiation, but digit x-rays get crystal clear images using 90% less radiation.
- iTero® digital and 5D scanners: Traditionally, dentists used molds and impressions to create custom-fitted appliances, such as Invisalign®, retainers, or dentures. However, digital scanners take the muss and fuss out of dental appliance creation. Furthermore, these digital scanners make it easier for Dr. Mina to detect the early signs of cavities.
- Digital Smile Design: Dr. Mina digitally analyzes patients’ dental and facial structures to create customized treatment plans that are precise, realistic, and measurable.
- SprintRay® 3D printing: Using the newest digital dentistry technology, Dr. Mina quickly and accurately makes customized oral appliances for her patients.
Comfortable, Minimally-Invasive, and Effective Services
Dental anxiety is one of the most common reasons why people hesitate to schedule regular dental visits. That’s why Dr. Mina has implemented comfort dentistry into her practice. Not only does she make in-office dental care more pleasant, but she also makes at-home dental care more attainable.
The gentle yet effective care that Dr. Mina provides includes services, such as:
- Comfort dentistry: If you suffer from dental anxiety, then don’t hesitate to address it with Dr. Mina and her team. It is always their goal to provide each patient with the gentle, comfortable, and custom care they deserve.
- Icon® non-drilling technique: It’s no secret that the sounds and sensations associated with dental offices contribute to dental anxiety. Therefore, Dr. Mina offers a modern approach to traditional drill-and-fill dentistry. The Icon non-drilling technique uses a liquid infiltrant to prevent cavities, even in their earliest stages. Furthermore, because this technique is minimally-invasive, Dr. Mina preserves and reinforces the natural structure of teeth.
- Personalized night guards: From temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) treatment to snoring, personalized night guards protect patients’ oral and overall health. Dr. Mina recommends these customized appliances for patients who grind their teeth, suffer from sleep apnea, or want TMD relief.
Continuing Education, Certifications, and Community Outreach
Dental and medical professionals must constantly continue their education in order to provide the highest standard of care. So, it’s no surprise that Dr. Mina Levi ceaselessly pursues any opportunity to refine her craft. In fact, it was through refining her craft that Dr. Mina became the first dentist in California certified to offer zirconia dental implants!
In addition, Dr. Mina has affiliations with several organizations, such as:
- A Master of the American Academy of Clear Aligners (one of only 30 dentists worldwide!)
- A Master of the Academy of General Dentistry (only 3% of US dentists are AGD masters!)
- A Fellow of the Academy of Dentistry International
- A Fellow of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists
Lastly, Dr. Mina puts her general dentistry expertise to good use by actively seeking community outreach opportunities. By providing underprivileged San Franciscans with quality dental care, she is making her community a better, healthier, and safer place.
