At Gulf Coast Smiles, we believe every visit to the dentist should be pleasant, convenient and simply exceptional. Dr. Mauricio Martinez and our team are proud to offer a wide range of dental services that meet your family’s oral health needs, without having to visit more than one Cape Coral, FL, dentist to get it. From comprehensive implant solutions to innovative laser techniques, we deliver the dental services and quality care your family deserves to enjoy a lifetime of happy, healthy smiles.
Jaw pain, headaches and other uncomfortable symptoms often signal TMJ disorders. We can diagnose and treat your TMJ problems with effective treatment, including nightguards, BOTOX® and orthodontic care.
Uneven chewing surfaces can be easily corrected with this quick, simple procedure. Our dentist gently smooths high areas on teeth or fillings to allow upper and lower teeth to bite together properly and without disturbance.
Our team routinely performs oral pathology exams to screen for precancerous and cancerous lesions in and around the mouth. Any suspicious or abnormal lumps, bumps, sores or areas of concern are further investigated, tested and treated as needed.
Good oral health and habits should start as early as possible. We are pleased to offer gentle pediatric care for your little ones that includes cleanings, exams, fluoride, sealants, sports mouthguards, fillings and pulpotomies.
Preventing dental decay and disease is integral to lasting oral health. Our caring team performs cleanings, exams, low-radiation x-rays, fluoride treatments, sealants and mouthguards to help patients maintain a healthy, beautiful smile.
Habitual teeth grinding (bruxism) can cause harm to teeth, gums, restorations and the TMJ. Our dentist offers oral appliance therapy with customized nightguards to protect oral structures and prevent teeth grinding. We also perform occlusal adjustments to smooth uneven chewing surfaces that may be contributing to or caused by this parafunctional habit.
We use composite resin material to repair decayed, broken or chipped teeth. These tooth-colored fillings blend seamlessly with surrounding tooth structure and are less invasive to place than silver amalgams.
Inlays and onlays are lab-made restorations we place when teeth are damaged beyond what a filling can repair, but do not quite need the full coverage of a crown. Inlays fit within the chewing surfaces of back teeth, while onlays cover one or more cusp tips and are also considered a “partial crown”.
Gingivectomies remove infected, overgrown or bulbous gum tissues to create a healthier gum line. This procedure may be included in a gum disease treatment plan to reduce periodontal pocketing and improve gum health.
Frenectomies are simple procedures that easily correct lip- or tongue-ties to improve oral function and appearance. We use our soft tissue laser to perform minimally invasive frenectomies for patients of all ages, which eliminates the need for anesthetic and sutures.
Osseous (flap) surgery is a proven gum disease treatment performed in cases of advanced periodontitis. With this service, our dentist treats deep areas of infection and smooths bone irregularities to halt the progression of gum disease and bone loss.
A non-surgical gum disease treatment, scaling and root planing removes plaque and tartar deposits from root surfaces to encourage gum tissue reattachment and minimize periodontal pocket depths.
Periodontal maintenance helps patients manage oral bacteria and keep gum tissue healthy following the completion of gum disease treatment. These procedures take the place of biannual cleanings and are scheduled on a three-month basis.
