Encinitas Family Dentistry
I was a patient at Dr Holyoak's previous dental group. When I called to schedule an emergency appointment for a broken tooth, I was told he had a new practice and that I would have to see someone else. I declined and found his new office on the internet. When I called, I was greeted by Tilley. She was beyond helpful and very caring. She was able to get me in immediately and had everything I needed waiting when I got there. Dr Holyoak's bedside manner, personable attitude and dental knowledge is why I wouldn't choose to see any other dentist. His staff is professional and very friendly. I can't stress how much I recommend this practice. I mean really...who writes a 5 star review after a root canal.

Our whole family has been going to Dr. Chong for several years now. His office staff is so kind and helpful. He is an an expert at what he does. I always feel like he takes his time with me each time I go there to make sure things are done right and to explain what he is doing. There is no need to go anywhere else! ~ Will Allen

Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
