My Tooth Doesn’t Hurt. Why Bother Seeing a Dentist?

Compared to a lot of medical issues, your dental health isn’t based on how your teeth actually feel. In reality, small issues can be completely asymptomatic (pain free) but turn into even bigger problems the longer you wait to address them.

Your Treatment Costs Go Up the Longer You Wait

Early interceptive treatment isn’t just less invasive to your tooth, it’s also gentler to your wallet! For example, a small filling is just a fraction of the price of getting a root canal and crown. Even if you don’t have dental insurance, it’s more cost effective to save money by treating dental issues sooner rather than later. Fortunately, flexible payment options are also available so that you can start on treatment right away.

You’ll Have Fewer Options Later On

When a tooth gets to the point that it’s significantly broken, worn, or fractured, you don’t have as many different treatment choices to repair it. At that point, your options are limited. Or worse, the only thing left to do to get you out of pain is to pull your tooth (that’s the last thing that we want to do!)

It Can Flare Up When You Least Expect It

The thing about toothaches and dental emergencies is that they like to flare up when it’s inconvenient and you least expect them. But the truth is, they’re preventable if you treat the tooth as early as possible. If our Encino dentist makes you aware of a problem area or small cavity, it’s important to intercept the issue well before the typical symptoms of tooth pain are even on the radar.

Have a broken tooth? Think there’s a cavity? If you need same-day emergency dental treatment, call Encino Dental Studio today. Dr. Jamsheed is currently providing urgent services to new and existing patients.

White Spots and Other Dental Stains

WE ALL WANT white, straight, beautiful teeth so that we can dazzle everyone with our smiles. Unfortunately, sometimes stains can get in the way of this goal, and they come in several different types.

Defeat Bad Breath with a Tongue Scraper

ONE OF THE MAIN things people overlook about a daily oral hygiene routine is cleaning their tongues. The rough surface of the tongue makes it the perfect place for all kinds of bacteria to hide and build up.

Hypodontia and Supernumerary Teeth

Not everyone gets all four wisdom teeth. Plenty of people don’t get any at all! In rare cases, a person could end up with extra teeth beyond the 32, or they could have fewer than 28!

Building a Healthy Smile

WE ALL KNOW how important daily brushing and flossing are to a growing child’s smile. But what about the vitamins and minerals that help build those healthy smiles in the first place? Let’s take a look at some of those.

What Are Dental Implants?

Tooth decay, accidents, and injuries that once would have left someone with a gap in their smile that they could never fill can now be treated so that everything works. For one, dental implants are effective ways to fill in the gaps.

Your Teeth Are Not Tools!

HUMAN TEETH ARE awesome. We wouldn’t have dedicated our professional lives to working with them if we didn’t think so. Unfortunately, a lot of people try to put their teeth to other uses they weren’t designed for, which can lead to serious problems.
