Preventative Care

The most effective way to keep your mouth happy and healthy is to take preventative action. Routine visits to the dentist are an important way of preventing major tooth problems. If you are looking for a dentist in Orange CA, come see us to find out about how we make your dental experience unique.

Did you know that when Dr. Renu Michelsen examines your teeth, she is also screening you for other oral health issues like oral cancer and periodontitis? Teeth cleanings and cavity checks are just part of the process.

Come Here For Comfort

When you visit our office, we make you feel as comfortable as possible. We offer pillows and blankets for a relaxing treatment, as well as plenty of coffee and water. Dr. Michelsen ensures all our patients are well-cared for during each appointment.

Fillings and Sealants

When you come in for an exam, we take digital x-rays of your teeth so we can spot problems early on. If we find a cavity, we will schedule an appointment for a filling.

Silver amalgam fillings are still under study by the ADA for containing traces of mercury, but they continue to last longer than the other types of tooth fillings. Composite fillings, or tooth-colored fillings, take on the look of your natural teeth. Fillings can also be made of porcelain or glass, and these materials are best suited for patients who have allergic reactions to regular fillings.

Did you know that 95 percent of patients will have a cavity in the grooves or pits of their teeth? Sealants provide a protective layer that keeps food from gathering on the tooth. We like to apply sealants as soon as the permanent teeth have come in.

Root Canals, Extractions, and Periodontitis

We offer many services, including root canals and extractions. When you come in to Michelsen Dental, we want your experience to be as comfortable and pleasant as possible. Ask us about our sedation options.

Another issue we screen for is periodontal disease. When your gums start to deteriorate, it can lead to other problems, including tooth decay. We will check to see if your gums or inflamed or receding and prescribe a treatment right away.

Brush regularly, and come see us!

Besides visiting your dentist every six months, keeping good dental hygiene habits will help prevent dental problems as well. Brush and floss daily, and call us to schedule an exam and cleaning so we can make sure your mouth is healthy and beautiful! We will show you a uniquely pleasant dental experience.

Very helpful and friendly staff. I love that they make your crown right there and you don't have to have a temporary tooth and wait for the permanent tooth.

My husband and I are both patients of Dr. Michelsen. As she has recently taken over this practice, we have only had a few visits with her but right off the bat, she made us feel right at ease and very comfortable with both her skill as a dentist and also her personal attention to her patients. She takes the time to get to know you, which we like. Her office staff is always very warm and inviting and never fail to greet you with a smile. I have already referred a friend and hoping we have the opportunity to refer others!

I've been procrastinating on going to the dentist for a few years because I was nervous of what I might need. But after visiting with Dr. Michelsen, I found that I was worried for no reason at all. She and her staff are kind, patient, and gentle! I'm smiling because, not only are my teeth nice and healthy again, I also got my smile brightened. It looks better than I thought possible...and makes me feel happy about myself again.
