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.

With 3D scanner, highly customized dental restorations such as dentures and night guards can be created rapidly so that you don’t have to wait for weeks or months for your new smile.

Advances in the porcelain materials used for veneers have made them stronger and better looking than the veneer materials used in the past. At Gentle Care Dentistry, Dr. Luu consults with you about your specific needs and preferences to determine the best type of veneer material for your desired results.

Dentist in Azusa, California uses the Wand instead of traditional needles for ultimate patient comfort

Most people don’t look forward to a trip to the dentist that will involve needles or anesthetic agents that can make their mouth and face numb for hours. The dental experience can provoke anxiety in even the calmest of people. Fortunately, with the latest dental technology called The Wand®, Dr. Brianne Luu in Azusa, CA can provide a painless and more targeted anesthesia experience for patients so they can comfortably receive their treatment and quickly get back to their day.

What is The Wand?

New dental technologies - The Wand The Wand is a replacement for the traditional syringes used to apply local anesthesia before dental treatments such as cavity fillings, periodontal cleanings, or other dental procedures. It is a computer-assisted device that allows the dentist to administer a precise dose of anesthetic to the exact location that it is needed.

Much of the pain associated with a numbing shots in dentistry is due to the speed of which the anesthesia goes into the tissue. With The Wand, the numbing agent is administered at a controlled rate with minimal pressure so that the pain associated with the shot is nearly eliminated.

What are the benefits of The Wand?

The Wand has many benefits over traditional needles when used in dental injections:
  • It doesn’t look like a syringe, which can reduce anxiety for patients who dislike needles or shots;
  • Because of the precise rate and pressure that the dose is administered, the experience is more comfortable, leading to a more relaxed patient;
  • It numbs the individual tooth or teeth being treated, which means that patients can return to their normal activities immediately afterwards without fear of drooling, a drooping mouth, or the inability to properly speak or eat.

Schedule a consultation today!

If you have been living with pain or sensitivity in your mouth but have been putting off visiting the dentist because of anxiety about the treatment process, you don’t need to wait any longer. With The Wand® and other advanced dental technologies, Dr. Luu and the team at Gentle Care Dentistry provide a comfortable, relaxing experience in the dental chair. If you are in the Azusa, CA area or surrounding communities, call +1 626-498-1766 to schedule your appointment today!


iTero Element scanner creates precise 3D dental images for better dental care in Azusa, CA

Dental impressions are widely used in dental practices for a variety of purposes, from creating custom-made dental crowns or dentures to cosmetic treatments such as Invisalign. At Gentle Care Dentistry in Azusa, CA, Dr. Brianne Luu has invested in the latest 3D imaging technology, called the iTero Element scanner, to provide the best patient experience and highest quality dental care possible.

iTero Element scanner: how it works

iTero Element Intraoral Scanner The iTero Element scanner is an advanced digital scanner that generates a precise 3D image of your mouth. In contrast to x-rays or dental impressions, which can only take one image/impression at a time, the iTero Element scanner takes up to 20 pictures per second. As the pictures are taken over a few minutes, a 3D image of your teeth and gums emerges on the computer screen for the dentist to use in treatment planning.

Uses for the iTero Element scanner

This advanced scanning technology can be used for a variety of purposes such as:
  • Creating imprints of dental restorations such as crowns, bridges, dentures, or implants;
  • Creating oral appliances such as mouth guards or night guards for teeth grinding;
  • Invisalign consultation and planning;
  • Invisalign progress assessment;
  • Diagnosing issues with your teeth or gums;
  • Help in identifying the right treatment plan for your specific dental issues.

Benefits of 3D imaging

There are many benefits to using 3D imaging instead of traditional molds that use putties to take a physical impression of the teeth.
  • The digital images created by the iTero Element scanner are much more accurate than physical dental impressions.
  • When the scans are used to plan out treatments such as Invisalign, patients can see the end results before the treatment even begins!
  • Perhaps of most importance to the patient, the 3D imaging process is much more comfortable. Instead of sitting with bad-tasting, bulky putty in their mouths that leave a chalky residue and can trigger gag reflexes, a small camera is simply inserted in the mouth to take the mold. This provides for improved patient comfort.

Dr. Luu is committed to using the latest dental technologies to not only provide great results, but also ensure that patients are comfortable during their treatment. Call the Gentle Care Dentistry office in Azusa, CA to learn more and schedule an appointment today!
