The Best General and Family Dentistry in Sherman Oaks
When choosing your family’s dentist, you want a team on your side that is experienced, provides the services that your loved ones need, and has a great atmosphere. At our clinic, Dr. Perlaza has 20 years of experience and works with a board certified periodontist and trained dental hygienists.
Checkups and Cleanings Every 6 Months
As a rule of thumb, we recommend getting your family into our clinic twice a year for regular checkups and cleanings. During the appointment, Dr. Perlaza’s team will:
- Provide fluoride treatment and cleanings to help strengthen the tooth enamel.
- Remove plaque and tartar that have built up on the teeth.
- Take dental images and visually look for cavities and tooth decay.
The Sherman Oaks Dentistry Team also uses regular appointments as an opportunity to educate patients on good dental hygiene–the best tool for preventing tooth decay.
Functional White Fillings
Tooth-colored fillings, also known as composite fillings, have several benefits over traditional amalgam and metal materials. Not only do they match the natural color of the tooth, they also bond better to the enamel and dentine structure. Studies have also shown that white fillings can return about 90% of the original strength to the tooth–your white fillings are less likely to chip.
Clear Correct Alignment
Metal braces not only look unstylish, but also bring a certain level of discomfort. Metal braces require uncomfortable spacers and don’t let the patient enjoy a variety of food and drink. In recent years, clear braces have taken off. Patients can remove these custom, plastic aligners to enjoy meals. Additionally, they don’t cause the canker sores or discomfort associated with conventional braces and retainers.

Dr. Perlaza is fully equipped to treat everyone in your family, from young to old. General treatments for adults include:
