They say the perfect dentist doesn’t exist; they’ve never been to Gentle Care Dentistry. Dr. Luu is the best dental practitioner around. Scared of the dentist? Dr. Luu is so good you won’t even know she’s started, she once extracted my molar in two minutes flat. Want comprehensive care? Dr. Luu doesn’t just cover up cavities as they appear, she looks at the whole picture and takes proactive steps to ensure that your teeth are going to be healthy for years to come. In addition to just being the best at what she does, Dr. Luu is constantly improving. She always has a new gadget to improve my experience at her office and my overall health; she attends conferences and stays on top of advancements in her field. All in all, I can brag about Dr. Luu all day, but it comes down to this: if your teeth are important to you but you’re afraid of the dentist, stop looking and come to Gentle Care Dentistry where you will be cared for like you’re one of Dr. Luu’s kids.

After many different visits to many different doctors, and a raging fear of the dentist that was so bad we could barely get out of the car - this place is heaven. The staff is gentle, calm, funny, and willing to work with whatever fears you have. True professionals. Whether a dentist has hurt you in the past, it's been 10 years, or you can't stand the drilling - Gentle Care Dentistry will help.
They've been great about working in our budget, allowing payments, and helping keep our dental anxiety in check. I love this place.

If I can give 10 stars I would! I have had root canals before and each one was just an awful experience - 2 to 3 hour procedures and would feel the on and off pain of the drilling. This place is amazing!!! Words cannot express how happy I was to get my root canal treated here - 45 minute root canal and did not feel a thing!!! I definitely recommend this dentist.

I always dreaded smiling because my teeth were messed up. I never really went to the dentist. When I first came to this dentist I was nervous. After the work I got done I wanted to cry with happiness. I could smile again. She is not only caring and sweet but she takes her time. She did an amazing job and I'm so glad I chose this dentist.

I decided to come to this dentistry because Dr. Luu specializes in safe amalgam removals. She and her staff are very professional and kind. I never wait long and the doctors procedures is very unique, she uses a anesthetic wand that is painless and not frightening like the big painful needle you typically get when getting anesthesia in your mouth. Dr. Luu and her staff always make sure I’m comfortable and I’m happy with the service I’ve been receiving. I would recommend them to my friends and family.

Let me start off by saying they have the nicest staff and customer service of any dentistry I’ve come across. I chipped my tooth around 10pm and so I called them wanting to set up an appointment. Even though they were closed at the time by almost 4 hours they still managed to pick up the phone. Because it was an urgent repair they managed to fit me in after hours the NEXT DAY. When I went into the office they were just as nice in person as they were on the phone. They took my X-rays and fixed my tooth all in the same day for a reasonably inexpensive price. Making sure my tooth was as perfect as I wanted it to be the whole process was quick and painless. Thank you Gentle Care for making me feel comfortable.

I have WHITE teeth again...finally, thanks to Dr. Luu and her great staff recommending CORE Whitening system to me! After needing a new Dentist for some major work on my teeth, I chose Gentle Care Dentistry and have been nothing but pleased since; definitely smiling now!
De. Luu, Joanna and Ruth are fantastic and caring and always make me feel comfortable and despite the major work done, I am fine and don’t feel any pain or discomfort afterwards.
I would highly recommend Gentle Care Dentistry and Dr. Luu to anyone looking for the best dentist possible and take advantage of the CORE Whitening system too!


Root Canal treatment in Duarte, CA

Dr. Luu and her team of dental professionals will open the top of the tooth to eliminate the infection

Hearing the words “root canal” can cause anxiety and fear for many dental patients. These infections often begin as small cavities on the exterior of the tooth. Left untreated, that small cavity can progress into the tooth’s nerve deep inside the jawbone. The infection often causes pain and a swollen jaw. Patients call the dentist’s office in a great deal of distress, looking for a fast appointment and quick therapy.

If you find yourself with pain in your tooth, jaw, or gums and think a root canal may be necessary, know that Dr. Brianne Luu of Gentle Care Dentistry in Duarte, CA, has the expertise and the experience to heal the infection and fix the tooth in the fastest manner possible. Additionally, she will treat you with respect and gentle care to make sure your fears are put to rest.

Dr. Luu’s first step to providing relief is to control the infection, often using antibiotics. Next, Dr. Luu and her team of dental professionals will open the top of the tooth to eliminate the infection that has made its way into the canal of the tooth, all the way to the root. Dr. Luu will work carefully and be sure to remove the infection from all areas of the tooth to ensure that the bacteria is eliminated and it cannot continue to grow and cause you further discomfort.

Dreaming about your perfect smile???
Call Us Today +1 626-466-9596 or Book an Appointment today.

Finally, once the infection is cleaned, the tooth will be filled and sealed. The tooth needs to be filled because the process of cleaning out the tooth cuts off blood supply, leaving the tooth brittle and fragile. Filling the tooth and sealing it with a crown ensures that the tooth remains whole and protected. Patients should expect to lose feeling in the tooth as the root canal process removes the tooth’s nerve.

Dr. Luu will work quickly to fix the tooth and get the patient smiling again, however the time a person spends in her dental chair largely depends on the placement of the tooth. Front teeth only have a single root canal, whereas molars have three or four canals and take longer to clear out.

Root canals sound scary, but it’s important to note that the root canal process is not what causes pain to the patient. Dr. Luu will numb the area with local anesthesia while she works to clear the infection that caused the discomfort.

If you have a problem tooth, call Dr. Luu at Gentle Care Dentistry to schedule an appointment.
