Sealants and Fillings | Jungle of Smiles: Sarah I Mathias, DDS, MS


Jungle of Smiles has been using Biolase hard tissue laser technology for over 15 years. This means most fillings are done without anesthesia. That’s right – no shots! You probably don’t need more convincing than that, but the laser is also gentler to the tooth and allows for less removal of healthy tissue to achieve the desired restoration.

Teen Dental

Smells Like Teen Spirit

Pediatric dentists don’t just treat younger kids and pre-teens. At Jungle of Smiles, Dr. Sarah specializes in addressing the unique needs of teenagers. Teen dentistry is very important, as teenagers face unique challenges to their oral health, and the teenage years are often when your child will develop the dental habits that will follow them into adulthood. Read on, or contact us now to schedule an appointment for your teen.


The teen years can be the perfect time to get orthodontic treatment for your child. All of the permanent teeth have erupted but there is still growth potential to help correct alignment issues. Dr. Sarah evaluates your child’s growth and development at every visit and will advise you when your child is showing signs of needing orthodontic intervention. And our adjacent office, Orange Coast Orthodontics can provide comprehensive orthodontic treatment including Invisalign for children, teens, and even adults.

Dietary Changes

With increased independence in the teen years comes greater exposure to foods and beverages that can cause dental decay. This is a very important time to make sure to keep up with preventive visits, so any signs of problems can be addressed sooner rather than later.

Wisdom Teeth Removal Evaluation

Impacted wisdom teeth can cause pain and damage to surrounding teeth. Timely referrals to the oral surgeon for extraction can prevent unnecessary pain and damage.

Teeth Whitening

Senior pictures, homecoming dance, or special occasion? Jungle of Smiles has in-office and at-home bleaching options.

With our program, you can say goodbye to discomfort and sensitivity commonly associated with whitening.
