What Our Patients Say
Clean, courteous, helpful. Dr Anderson explains in detail and shows concern. Unhurried, relaxed atmosphere. Would highly recommend!
By far the best dental experience ever. Love your office. Will definitely refer to friends and family.
Dr Gharavi did a fabulous job on my 10-yr-old daughter’s root canal. She calmed her nerves and was very patient and helpful at explaining and working through the procedure. I felt very confident in her abilities, and everything went smoothly. The office staff is always very friendly and the wait time is only a few minutes.
Dr. Shawn and his staff are amazing. I am fearful of dentist and I often need sedation for any kind of work. But Dr. Shawn promised me that I wouldn't feel anything so I trusted him and he kept his word to me so now he is the only dentist I trust to work on my teeth. He's gentle and caring . I love him and I tell this at every visit. I just really appreciate finding a dentist like him. I would recommend him to everyone.
Your office was very accommodating and comfortable, loved the state-of-the-art vibe!
We can help diagnose complex dental conditions and provide insights that help patients make informed treatment decisions.
Even though they are not always visible, cracks in a tooth can produce many types of symptoms, including pain when chewing, temperature sensitivity, and possibly referred pain. It is also common for the pain to come and go, making it difficult to diagnose. Careful evaluation, planning and possible treatment are necessary when dealing with a cracked tooth.
If an injury causes a tooth to be fractured, loosened, or completely knocked out of your mouth, it's important that you are treated promptly! If this happens to you, keep the tooth moist. If possible, put it back into the socket. A tooth can be saved if it remains moist. We are experts with dental trauma and can help you if the need arises
Vital Pulp Therapy
The primary goal of vital pulp therapy is to treat, restore, and save the affected tooth. There are times, particularly in children, when the pulp (nerve) can be preserved, thus preventing the need for a root canal treatment.
Microscopes in Endodontics
The surgical operating microscope greatly enhances our ability to view the smallest details inside your teeth. By magnifying vision up to 25 times that of the naked eye, the dental microscope is useful in both diagnosis and treatment. Research demonstrates better outcomes compared to treatment without vision enhancement or magnification. We utilize the microscope in all of our procedures.
Most teeth with root canal treatment are successful and can last as long as any other tooth. However, a tooth with previous root canal treatment can occasionally develop an infection and become painful. With the appropriate care, the tooth can still be saved by re-treating the old root canal. This involved cleaning out the previous fillings, disinfecting the tooth, re-filling the canals.
Root End Surgery | Apicoectomy
There are times when regular root canal treatment is not possible. A root end surgery, also known as apicoectomy, is an endodontic surgical procedure in which the tooth's tip is removed and the root end is filled with a biocompatible material.
For people who are significantly scared or nervous about going to the dentist, sedation dentistry can help take away the anxiety. Sedation is a process used to establish a relaxed, easy, and calm state through the use of sedative drugs. Time passed quickly while patients are very relaxed during their procedure.
