Welcome to the website of leading Sacramento dentist, Dr. Andrea Joy Smith! Whether you are looking for gum recession treatment, have periodontal disease, or wish to replace missing teeth with dental implants, Dr. Smith can help you. We offer a wide range of treatments to suit patients with different needs. Our site contains information on everything from the Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™) to mini dental implants. Take as much time as you need to look through the different pages and find the solution you are looking for!
Mini Dental Implants
Since Mini dental implants are much smaller than traditional implants, they can be placed in less time and are immediately functional. The smaller size requires less force to place and results in less trauma to surrounding bone. This means that less time is needed for healing, allowing the implants to become immediately functional. Mini dental implants are often used to hold removable dentures in place and eliminate problems such as slippage and bone deterioration.
Most gum recession treatments are considered invasive, as they involve cutting and removing tissue from one area and then attaching it to the gum line. PST™, however, involves only one small incision and no tissue removal. A tiny, pinhole sized entry point is made in the gum tissue so that special instruments can be used to loosen the tissue and stretch it over the exposed tooth root. Afterward, collagen strips are inserted through the entry point and used to hold the tissue in place. There is no need for scalpels or sutures.
Laser Periodontal Therapy (LAPT)
This is an innovative laser treatment that is used for various soft tissue procedures including periodontal disease treatment. Instead of using blades to remove tissue, a highly precise laser is used to vaporize only the affected tissue while leaving the healthy areas intact. The procedure is relatively short and must be performed once a week for about four weeks. We care about your oral health and offer advanced, high quality periodontal procedures to help you achieve your best smile.

That was my first visit to Dr. Andrea Smith. I need a hygiene appointment and a general consultation since a need some teeth work to be done in the near future. Sandy from the front office was welcoming and friendly and Jacky, the hygienist was competent, gentle and concern if I was having any pain throughout the cleaning process. Dr. Andrea is a very nice person, friendly, knowledgeable in her field and very easy to talk with. She answered all my questions in a easy way to understand (showing some pictures and explaining some brochures) about futures treatments options that I want to have done in my mouth.Overall I was very happy with my visit.
One of the best dentist you’ll ever find. I can trust her. the staff is very friendly. I highly recommend Dr. Andrea Smith. She’s well worth it! She put a smile back on my face.
Dr. Smith is simply wonderful. She is kind, direct, and nonjudgmental about whatever you have done or not done to have tooth issues...Her staff are equally wonderful. I used to be dental phobic but I trust her implicitly to establish a treatment plan that is the best for me.
Every time I go here, Dr. Smith makes me wish I could leave a new 5 star review. She really cares about her patients satisfaction with her work and that's really hard to find these days. I drive an hour each way to see her. Highly recommend.
It had been YEARS since I’ve been to a dentist! My Mom recommended Dr Smith and her staff, and she was AMAZING!! I had to have some extractions done and was extremely nervous. Dr Smith and her staff made sure that I was relaxed, comfortable, and felt no pain. I still have a lot of work ahead to get a healthy mouth and teeth, but I know I am in good hands with Dr Andrea Joy Smith and her amazing staff! Thank You!!!
