Welcome to Barsanti Dental Group for healthy smiles with advanced dentistry and highly personalized care
At Barsanti Dental Group, we are fortunate to call beautiful Arcata, Eureka, and greater central and western Humboldt County, California “home.” In keeping with our stunning natural surroundings, our dental practice is well-appointed in relaxing earth tones and rich woods. Led by our skilled dentist, Dr. Trish Barsanti, our practice is also adept at maintaining and restoring stunning and healthy smiles. We accomplish this with comprehensive and advanced general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry that is well-suited to the whole family and values close relationships with patients and proactive, preventive services.
As its name suggests, general dentistry means several different things. It is generally built on a foundation of routine dental check-ups. The standard check-up is scheduled once every six months. Our dental hygienists clean your teeth and remove stubborn tartar from the gum line during these visits. Dr. Barsanti also visually inspects your teeth, gums and connected oral tissues and structures for signs of early-stage damage. The earlier we can detect and intervene with conditions, the better the odds that we can successfully and non-traumatically halt disease progression and avoid side effects like pain and complications like tooth loss.
Dr. Barsanti also uses a range of advanced diagnostic and treatment technologies to detect problems and resolve conditions and symptoms gently, precisely, conservatively, efficiently, and comfortably. Regular appointments present opportunities to protect the teeth, gums, and mouth with dental sealants, oral appliances like sportsguards and nightguards, and painless laser-assisted periodontal therapies.
With dental restorations, a decayed or otherwise damaged tooth can be restored to health, function, and attractive appearance. Restorations include fillings and crowns. We even have onsite CEREC technology, which allows us to design, fabricate, adjust, and place crowns in just one visit! For teeth that cannot be preserved, we recommend prompt tooth replacement. Options include well-fitting removable dentures and partials and modern tooth replacement with implants placed in the jawbone. Dental implants function like tooth roots to stabilize crowns, bridges, and dentures.
Restorative dentistry transcends the teeth. Dr. Barsanti is also skilled at treating temporomandibular joint dysfunction affecting the TM joints that connect the skull to the jaw. Her advanced surgical training also supports comfortable and precise regeneration of gingival tissues and treatment of lip- and tongue-ties (frenectomies).
Many of the restorative treatments mentioned above, from fillings to crowns and implants, are as pleasing to the eye as they are durable and highly functional. However, some procedures available at our office are primarily cosmetic. These treatments include professional teeth whitening. Procedures administered at our practice in one visit or overseen by our dentist as a convenient take-home therapy are safe and get the noticeable results you desire. We also offer veneers, which are made from quality dental porcelain. Once placed and bonded to the prepared surface of a tooth, the porcelain veneer disguises cosmetic imperfections such as chips, gaps, stubborn discoloration, and shape- and size-related irregularities. True to our cutting-edge approach, Dr. Barsanti also uses sophisticated bonding agents and techniques to provide high-speed bonding for utmost satisfaction in the natural appearance of veneers, as well as the most comfortable and speedy treatment possible.
Experience all the many ways we distinguish from other dental practices, near and far, for yourself! Call us at (707) 388-3880 to schedule your appointment with Dr. Barsanti at our Arcata office.

When you are missing one or more teeth, the supportive structures of those teeth can atrophy, which dramatically alters your appearance.MORE ON IMPLANTS
