General & Preventive Dentistry

One of the most important things you can do for your teeth is to simply take care of them on a day-to-day basis. If you do this, you can make sure that no unnecessary problems arise in the future. Regular checkups and a good cleaning are the foundations for good oral and dental health going forward.

Bone Grafting

Bone and gum grafting are treatments that can be necessary for people who want to have implants fitted. If the bone is weak and not strong enough to support the implants, a bone graft must first be carried out, and the same concept applies to the gums.

Gum Recession Treatment

Gum recession treatment is made necessary when a person has experienced gum disease that has started to cause the gum line to recede. This can be carried out in many ways and is essential because it prevents further periodontal disease from developing and taking hold.


LANAP® is a new form of laser gum surgery, and it’s a cutting-edge procedure that offers alternative treatment for periodontal disease. It removes harmful bacteria without causing any damage to the healthy gum tissue. Dr. Trujillo is an expert at using this technology to produce positive outcomes for patients.

“The office team is great, as is Dr. Trujillo. He’s skilled and also compassionate. This recent visit I was using a cane and he personally walked me to my car.”
