Magic & Children’s Dentistry
“It’s a wonderful ice-breaker,” says Dr. Kezian. “Magic is something that everyone usually likes. It’s a distractive mechanism. It’s colorful. It’s fun. It allows them to interact with me. And it’s not just some guy coming at them with dental instruments saying, ‘Okay, let’s fix your teeth.'”
“It’s important for a young child to come to the dentist obviously for many reasons,” says Dr. Kezian “One is to make certain that everything is healthy in a developing child’s mouth, to acclimate them to the experience of dentistry, because at some point they will, quote, need dentistry.”
And having her mom in on the act makes it a little more magical. “I think it will make her next visit even better knowing that when I go through it, it’s a good experience,” says her mother.
Dr. Kezian says it’s wonderful for a child to know that the parent is nearby.
“It’s probably even more important that they know the parent’s here for a reason as well, for the same reason they’re here,” he says. But for now, the trick is to make sure that everything is okay.

How to Get the Most Out of Your Dental Visit
For many oral health problems, our dentists can offer multiple treatment options for dental care. These options may vary in complexity, durability and cost. A missing tooth can be replaced by either a dental implant, bridge or denture. Which one is chosen depends a great deal on what you, the patient, want. Working together, you and your dentist can choose the treatment options that best meet your needs.
This relationship is a shared responsibility. Your dentist will explain each treatment option, including its benefits and drawbacks. You should tell your dentist about yourself and your needs, and ask your dentist and office staff as many questions as needed to help you understand the treatment recommendations.
Patients Experience 90% Less Radiation
Our practice utilizes digital radiography. Conventional film is replaced with more sensitive computer sensors. This results in much less radiation to obtain diagnostic x-rays. It also provides the doctor with more rapid diagnostics and allows your visit to be shortened dramatically. Digital x-rays can be enhanced in numerous ways including colorization, reverse imaging, decay enhancements, etc… The x-rays can be printed or even e-mailed to our dental specialists or insurance companies.

Arestin – A New Treatment for Periodontal Disease
Periodontal disease is an infection of the tissues that support your teeth. Most adults during their lifetime will develop some form of periodontal disease, which is the major cause of tooth loss.
How is periodontal disease treated?
Treatment methods depend on the type of disease and how far the condition has progressed. The first step is usually a thorough cleaning that includes scaling to remove plaque and tartar deposits. The tooth roots also may be planed to smooth the root surface, allowing the gum tissue to heal and reattach to the tooth.
Arestin is a prescription drug approved by the FDA which delivers antibiotic treatment directly to the infected areas in your gums. It works over a 14 day period to kill the infection and effectively help heal your gums.
