What is Comprehensive Dentistry?

As your local dentist in Escondido, Dr. Hope doesn’t just treat your teeth and send you out the door! Instead, he focuses on using preventive methods and early detection to solve dental issues at their source.

Pairing dental technology with preventive service, Dr. Hope aims to:

  1. Reduce repeat trips to the dentist for restorative dental care
  2. Reduce the risks of needing complex or costly dental work in the future
  3. Detect warning signs in their earliest stages, when they’re easiest to treat

If you’ve neglected to see your dentist for more than six months, you may not be in the driver’s seat of deciding when you’ll next go. Whether you’ve experienced a toothache, jaw pain or what you think may be a cavity, it’s better not to worry: Dr. Hope can help!

Prevention: The Key To Overall Health

By brushing and flossing two times a day, eating healthy, and visiting the dentist regularly help set the foundation for excellent oral health. We know through training and experience that treating small dental issues before they become big issues leads to happier, healthier patients!

By keeping you informed and encouraging the quality preventive care mentioned above, we can help reduce and prevent tooth decay, cavities, and gum disease. For the most common dental issues such as tooth decay, cavities, root canals or gum disease, we offer the following services:

  • Digital imaging via digital X-rays and intra-oral cameras
  • Laser therapy for gum disease and periodontal care
  • Endodontic care (root canal therapy) to restore problem teeth
  • Cosmetic dentistry, from bonding all the way to crowns and veneers
  • Sleep apnea and TMJ treatment with custom mouthguards

We Invest In Technology To Invest In You!

Dr. Hope implements the height in modern dental technology, including a Galileos Scanner, which is a magnificent screening tool that provides a 3D scan of your mouth, allowing you to see a detailed map of your gums, teeth, bones, and mouth. In addition our digital imaging capabilities reduce your typical radiation exposure getting X-rays to as much as 90% less than traditional radiographs. Other ways dental technology helps patients every day:

  • Reveals subtle changes in your dental health even below the surface
  • Create a virtual roadmap of your current oral health condition
  • Can locate causes of TMJ pain (jaw pain) in the temporomandibular joint
  • Aids in the preparation for a tooth extraction or dental implant placement
