General Dentistry Escondido

Preventing common dental disease starts at home. When you practice regular oral hygiene habits and keep your biyearly appointments with Dr. Malone, you’re well on your way to maintaining a gorgeous smile for years to come. When you require dental care, our dedicated team is here to assist you with a range of general dentistry services.

  • Comprehensive Examinations: Thorough examinations will keep you smiling brightly. When we comprehensively evaluate your dental health, a personalized preventative program and treatment plan can be developed just for you.
  • Professional Dental Cleanings: Professional dental cleanings are an essential part of maintaining your oral health. Our highly trained Registered Dental Hygienists will clean your teeth to help prevent tooth decay and gum disease and talk with you about proper home hygiene care.
  • Dental Risk Factor Assessment: Who wouldn’t want to avoid future dental issues? If you’ve experienced recurring tooth decay, gum disease, broken teeth or other problems, we can help you overcome them by controlling your risk factors.
  • Fluoride Therapy: Children and adults alike can benefit from our personalized preventative dental program. Depending on your needs, we may recommend fluoride therapy as an effective way to fight off decay.
  • Laser Cavity Detection: Our DIAGNOdent® laser cavity detection system brings a revolutionary approach to detecting and diagnosing early or hidden decay that lives deep in the grooves of teeth. Even cavities not seen by our dental team during an examination or on X-rays can be easily viewed, allowing your tooth structure to be preserved and minimizing the size of filling required. In turn, you receive lower treatment costs and less complicated treatment.
  • Nonsurgical Gum Disease Treatment: Periodontal disease, also called gum disease, is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. Estimates suggest that 80% of adults are in a stage of gum disease. It’s associated with a higher risk of heart attack, stroke and pregnancy complications. If left untreated, gum disease will destroy the bone and gum tissue that support your teeth.
  • Oral Cancer Screening: Our patients receive an oral cancer screening as a part of their routine dental examinations. Oral cancer affects approximately 35,000 people annually, and 20% of those who develop this disease may die within five years.
  • Periodontal Evaluation: Gum disease, or periodontal disease, begins as a bacterial infection due to plaque accumulation along the gum lines. If left untreated, it leads to a chronic form of inflammation that causes periodontitis, a more serious type of gum infection. The outcome is the loss of teeth as your bone structure and gums become compromised.
  • Protective Night Guard: Grinding or clenching your teeth at night leads to damage and painful headaches or jaw discomfort. Most people are unaware that they do so while they sleep. A night guard appliance offers relief and prevents tooth wear.
  • Tooth Decay Risk Assessment: A visual dental examination and X-rays uncover existing tooth decay. Potential areas of decay, however, can now be assessed and preventative measures taken so that you can avoid more serious and costly treatment in the future.
  • Tooth Decay Prevention: Feeling a little tooth sensitivity? Tooth decay, tooth brushing abrasion or gum disease can all cause sensitivity through the weakening of your tooth enamel or exposure of the root. Tooth decay prevention is an important step in limiting and stopping sensitivity.
  • Tooth Sealants: A thin resin coating called a dental sealant can be applied to the top of the back teeth. It gives an extra measure of protection against tooth decay and can be beneficial to all ages, but particularly to children.
