Dr. Johns provides a full spectrum of dental cleanings and preventive dental services, including:

Professional Teeth Cleanings (Prophylaxis)

Teeth cleanings, also known as dental cleanings and prophylaxes, are standard for all patients. If you have a healthy oral care routine, you'll likely just need to come in twice a year for cleanings. If Dr. Johns finds evidence of gum disease, he may recommend more frequent appointments.

Digital X-Rays

We offer 100% digital x-rays at our Millbrae dental office. Not only are they more accurate than standard x-rays, the machine also emits less radiation, making them the safer, more efficient choice in dental imaging.

DIAGNOdent® Laser Caries Detection Aid

Early diagnosis and treatment of cavities is the key to ensuring your teeth stay healthy. The DIAGNOdent Laser Caries Detection Aid allows Dr. Johns to pinpoint tiny areas of tooth decay before they would be visible during an exam or even on an x-ray!

Intraoral Digital Scanner

X-rays can be an excellent way to help diagnose oral health problems, but an intraoral digital scanner takes it a step further. Chris Johns, DDS uses our intraoral digital scanner to examine areas of our patient’s mouths that x-rays can’t show.

Dr. Johns uses the intraoral digital scanner with patients who are undergoing orthodontic or other restorative dental treatments. Dr. Johns can use the intraoral scans to take a closer look at your smile and show you how your possible smile outcome side-by-side with your current smile! Intraoral digital scans are fast, comfortable, and accurate.

Desensitizing Treatments for Sensitive Teeth

Does it hurt your teeth to eat certain foods? Do hot or cold drinks cause you pain? Ask Dr. Johns about treatment options to help ease your tooth sensitivity. Stop suffering from pain and sensitivity and start enjoying your favorite foods again without tooth pain!

Halitosis Treatment

Chronic halitosis, also known as "bad breath," is a common condition for many, but it's also a symptom of some dangerous dental conditions. If you have been told that you have chronic bad breath, Dr. Johns will conduct a full exam to determine the root cause of the issue.

Gentle Tooth Extractions

Extraction is a last resort, but sometimes it can be necessary to improve your oral health. Dr. Johns may recommend a gentle tooth extraction if your tooth is too damaged to save, is putting adjacent teeth at risk of damage or infection, or if you suffer from overcrowding of your teeth.

Wisdom Teeth Removal

Group of people taking a group selfie in Millbrae, CAThe best time to have wisdom teeth removed is during a patient's late teenage years or early 20s. These immature wisdom teeth are smaller, so surgery is less complicated and potentially less painful.

If your wisdom teeth have not started to erupt, we will use x-ray imaging to locate them and determine if it’s time to have them removed.

Athletic Mouth Guards

Are you or your child involved in sports? If so, take advantage of our custom athletic mouth guards. Ours are made special for each and every patient. Not only do they protect the teeth, but they also reduce the probability of concussions.

TMJ Disorder Treatment

Tired of suffering from excruciating jaw pain, persistent headaches, or facial soreness? Ask Dr. Johns how you can find relief and protect your smile against excessive wear caused by the jaw clenching and grinding of TMJ disorder.
