Conservative Dentistry

conservative dentistry

Conservative dentistry is a type of dentistry that seeks to save as much or all the original teeth in your mouth. If possible, you always want to keep the original structure.

Conservative dentistry begins with YOU being in charge of your dental health. This means regular visits to the dentist to prevent and catch problems. Three to six-month appointments allow dentists to examine your teeth and gums regularly.

If a dentist can diagnose a dental problem while it’s still small, then the dentist can do the least amount of dentistry to solve the problem, recover the functions of the tooth and keep as much of the natural tooth structure as possible.

Let’s start with an example that is common in most people: A large old amalgam/silver filling. So let’s say you have a large old filling from 10-30 years ago. Because silver fillings have a mechanical retention to the tooth and don’t bond chemically, they can often cause fracture lines in your tooth structure. Here is how a few scenarios would go:

Dentists can catch a small fracture line early on before the tooth fractures.
-If it’s small, restore it with a porcelain inlay. This is a small piece that’s stronger and longer lasting than a white filling.
-If it’s larger, a dentist will restore it with an ONLAY. Onlays preserve your tooth structure and along with biomimetic bonding methods, make it as if your tooth were the same as before!

You haven’t seen your dentist in a long time or chose not to fix the problem. You bite on a nut and the tooth with the large silver filling fractures. This happens a lot in patients!
– It may fracture it to the nerve and need a root canal and full crown. We can still use conservative density to place a crown or cap on it after but you lose the vitality of your tooth.
– It may not be savable due to a deep fracture and need to be PULLED! Then we would consider implants or bridges. This scenario is no longer conservative and very expensive.

So you see the importance of addressing small problems early on. Our goal is to help you retain more of your smile without recommending unnecessary and expensive dental procedures. When we practice conservative dental treatments, you benefit from a stronger, healthier smile.

Call our office at (818) 508–7272 to learn more about conservative dentistry and what it can do for you! We’ll be happy to answer your questions and set up an appointment with one of our dentists.

3 Reasons to Visit Your Dentist for Dental Exams and Cleanings | Hollywood CA

dental exams

Routine dental exams and cleanings not only provide greater oral health but also improve patients overall longterm health.  Dr. Kashani offers comprehensive dental exams and cleanings to provide patients with compassionate and professional dental care in Hollywood, CA.

Why Visit a Dentist for a Dental Checkup?

The Finishing Touch
Dentists are able to clean away plaque buildup and hardened tartar (calculus) that is unable to be properly removed at home. Dentists and hygienists use special instruments to remove the build-up. It’s best to let a professional handle the situation in removing this nasty buildup that is responsible for a host of problems including gum disease and tooth decay.

Behind The Scenes
Dental visits provide the dentist an opportunity to fully examine your mouth and review your current routine – giving tips, tricks or recommendations that you may be able to benefit from. Dental examinations combined with x-rays allow Dr. Kashani to view the deeper parts of your teeth and gums for early detection and an overall better prognosis if any abnormalities are found.

Maintain Your Beautiful Smile
This relates to excellent oral hygiene, but regular dental cleanings and exams keep your smile healthy by promoting an environment that is free from diseases (i.e. periodontal disease). Dr. Kashani would be happy to discuss any personal needs regarding your mouth during regular dental cleaning. We offer teeth whitening services that are sure to make your smile a few shades whiter.

Contact Dr. Sally’s Hollywood dentist office at (818) 508–7272 if you have any questions regarding the general dentistry procedures we offer. We would be happy to answer your questions and concerns!

Best Tooth Preservation Dentist in Hollywood CA

lesly-juarez-220845-unsplashMany patients desire to preserve the healthy portion of their damaged or broken tooth.  Our dentist in Hollywood, CA understands the importance of preserving the strong tooth to help patients improve their oral health. With biomimetic dentistry, Dr. Kashani focuses on tooth preservation by treating fractured and decayed teeth in a way that keeps them strong and safe.

Advantages of Visiting a Biomimetic Dentist in Hollywood, CA

The goal of biomimetic dentistry is to restore damaged, broken, and decayed teeth. Biomimetic dentistry strives to return the tooth to its original strength, function, and appearance. Patients with strong tooth structure are less likely to need crowns, root canals, and extractions.  Preserving tooth structure should be the primary goal because the human tooth is designed by nature to withstand the pressure of daily activity. Molars have ridges and sluice-ways that are specifically designed for chewing, while front teeth are reinforced to bite and cut into food.  By preserving the natural tooth, patients can continue with their daily life worry-free.

To schedule your biomimetic dentist appointment in Hollywood, CA, call (818) 508–7272.
