A Different Kind of Dental Relationship
When you visit, our first goal is to establish a feeling of trust. Our job is to listen to you, respect you, educate you and not judge your decisions. Dr. Cherian understands you might be anxious about the process of receiving dental care. Therefore, she makes it a point to explain your proposed treatment plan carefully and unhurriedly answer all your questions. Only then will she take you gently through your treatment. Modern dentistry has many techniques, local anesthetics and relaxation methods to increase your comfort. The more involved you are in making dental health decisions, the less room there is for fear and uncertainty.
If you are like most of us, you've had the dentist find a cavity, place a rather large filling, and wondered why the filling is so large if the cavity wasn't there just six months before. The answer is that the cavity was there six months before — it just wasn't big enough to show on x-rays, and it wasn't visible to the dentist yet. The new Laser Scanner can now find cavities years earlier, when the ultra-small cavity can be removed and repaired with a small invisible bonded filling.
With digital radiography, an image is taken of your mouth with a digital sensor, and downloaded into your computer, where it is immediately available. This method results in 75% less radiation than conventional x-rays.
No more waiting for images to develop and no more chemical waste to pollute the environment.
HAVE YOU BEEN TOLD YOU NEED GUM SURGERY?
Maybe you don’t! We know your oral health is not only about looking your best. It’s about maintaining healthy teeth and gums. The cause of most tooth loss is NOT decay – it’s gum disease. Recent studies have established a link between gum disease and heart disease. The good news is that gum disease can be treated successfully, often without surgery. We want all our patients to have outstanding oral health. We use various treatment methods to halt gum disease including ARESTIN™. ARESTIN comes in powder form and contains very tiny microspheres which are not visible to the eye. These micospheres deliver a time released antibiotic directly to the site of the infection (the spaces between the gums and teeth). It kills the bacteria that cause gum disease. The best part is that it’s all painless!
It can not only ruin your social life but it's often a sign of more serious health problems. Gum disease could be present when you have chronic bad breath. Major advancements in the diagnosis and treatment of bad breath have encouraged Dr. Cherian to add a Fresh Breath Center to her practice. Fresh breath can be yours again!
