San Diego Dentist James Loye Improves Smiles and Self Esteem
James Loye has worked as a craftsman of dentistry for over 27 years. His passion for creating results to keep his patients smiling began at the onset of his education in 1982. After receiving a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, he continued his education to receive a Doctor of Dental Surgery in 1986 from the prestigious Loma Linda University in. Loma Linda, California. With decades of experience in the industry, Dr. Loye is a member of a multitude of professional affiliations including the American Dental Association, the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, the California Dental Association and the American Academy of Facial Esthetics among others.
A husband and father, Dr. Loye enjoys spending his time away from the office surrounded by his family. As a true outdoorsman, he enjoys hiking and mountain biking as well as travel. In addition to his mission to provide an improved sense of self-esteem through dentistry, Dr. Loye is passionate about giving back to the community in other ways. He is a volunteer for multiple charitable organizations such as TVIA, an organization that promotes the involvement of teenage boys for volunteer efforts. He also serves as a volunteer at the local homeless shelter sponsored by Temple Solel in Solana Beach, California, which he is a member of. Each Christmas, Dr. Loye donates toys and necessity items to Father Joe’s charity organization in San Diego.
James Loye prides himself on the professional and personal atmosphere of his practice. Clients at Dr. Loye’s practice are never just another number. Instead, each patient is treated with the utmost care and consideration, and greeted by first name each time they walk through office doors. As a dentist focusing on multiple facets of the dental industry, from general and cosmetic dentistry to short-term orthodontics and sleep apnea treatment, Dr. Loye is well versed in the practice. He provides outstanding service and treatment for virtually any dental issue you may have.
Dr. Loye’s Dental Services
Dr. Loye’s treatments range from needle-free anesthesia hygiene services to the medical treatment of sleep apnea. Instead of focusing on one area of the industry, James Loye has mastered the art of juggling multiple services to provide clients with a full service practice.
Dr. Loye’s full service general dentistry treatments are offered to patients of all ages. Services include annual check ups, treatment for breath and gum issues and tooth pain, digital X-rays, tooth colored fillings and more. If you have a general dental issue, Dr. Loye is classically trained in the science of general dentistry.
If your concerns are cosmetic issues, Dr. Loye offers a wide range of cosmetic fixes. He is able to address either one or a combination of the following problems:
- Gaps between teeth
- Chipped, cracked and broken teeth
- Uneven sizing
- Crowded teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Stains and discoloration
- Teeth that appear too short
- Missing teeth
Dr. Loye also offers the most modern form of teeth whitening, Deep Bleaching Kors Teeth Whitening. The product is an ultra powerful process, which safely removes stains that occur from the consumption of red wine, coffee, or black tea. The method can also aid the reversal of staining caused by the use of the potent antibiotic, Tetracycline. Unlike bleaches that cause sensitivity, this method lessens or eliminates the painful reactions caused by other whitening procedures.
Such fixes provide patients with an overall improved sense of self-esteem and well-being. Dr. Loye’s years of experience with such cases have given him not only keen knowledge, but also artistic skill, in transforming the smile of each unique patient.
James Loye: Therapeutic Procedures
Dr. Loye wants his patients to not only look good, but feel good, too. For this reason, he provides therapeutic services like Botox and Dermal Fillers which benefit patients by helping them with painful issues associated with clenching, bruxing, teeth grinding, headaches, jaw joint pain and face muscle pain. His practice is trained and recognized by the American Academy of Facial Esthetics to provide therapeutic services with the use of Botox and Dermal fillers. Such sophisticated therapies are taught by the most prestigious medical and dental universities throughout the country, yet are highly underused by most practices.
Short Term Orthodontics
Advances in orthodontic procedures have given dentists the opportunity to correct cosmetic issues within a greatly shortened time period. Using the most modern form of orthodontic technology, Dr. Loye has created a treatment program known as “Six Months Smiles.” The short-term orthodontic procedure perfects an unsightly smile in the time constraint of six months. Whether you would like to address spacing or crowding of teeth, Dr. Loye utilizes these advanced forms of technology to perfect the positioning of your teeth, creating a virtually perfect smile. An extra benefit to the short-term commitment is that the process uses white wires and clear brackets to conceal the process as much as possible.
If concealment is your main goal while undergoing orthodontic treatment, Dr. Loye is certified in providing the wildly popular Invisalign procedure. The clear braces are fitted to the alignment of your teeth and are typically worn a minimum of 22 hours a day. Opposed to metal braces, which are highly obvious, Invisalign is virtually invisible and goes unnoticed by most people.
Sleep Apnea Treatment
James Loye includes sleep apnea treatments in his range of procedures offered by his practice. Sleep Apnea, which is a condition that affects a person’s ability to breathe during sleep, is a serious issue that areprevented through the use or oral appliances. After an examination of a patient’s unique case, Dr. Loye recommends the type or oral device that will best suit a person’s need to conquer sleep apnea. Some of the oral devices include:
- Thornton Adjustable Positioner
- SomnoMed MAS
- Herbst Telescopic Appliance
- Tongue Retaining Device
- Elastic Mandibular Advancement Appliance
Each unique oral device promotes open airways to reduce or cure a patient’s sleep apnea symptoms. An oral appliance can, in some cases, serve as an alternative to surgery of the throat. Overall, all of Dr. Loye’s sleep apnea treatments strive to restore each patient’s need for a healthy night of sleep.
James Loye aims to consistently provide the type of quality and loyalty that keeps his patients coming back. With his proven record in providing each patient with the attention and treatment they deserve, it’s understandable that patients return to the practice of James Loye to address all of their dental needs.
Always a pleasant experience with Dr. James Loye and especially love to see Ellen who is one of the nicest and kind people around...
I have no issues or concerns about my last visit. As usual, everything went very well. I was made comfortable, my procedure was handled gently and professionally, and I even left with a "goodie" bag to help me recover from a frozen mouth. That is a first for me with any other dentist I have visited. Thank you to Dr.James Loye and his staff!
Awesome design, congrats for the new site.
