Pediatric Dentistry:

Providing dental care for young children and education for their parents is one of the most important things we do here at Encino Tower Dental. Even though baby teeth are only temporary, they are essential to chewing, speech development, and maintaining the space for permanent teeth. Taking care of your child’s baby teeth is an important part of building a good foundation for the development of their permanent teeth.

 

We recommend that children have their first dental visit when their first baby tooth appears. Prevention is key. During regular check-ups, Dr. Henifar will look for any signs of decay and will check for proper tooth development. She will also educate the parents about proper home care and discuss any habits that can affect their dental health.

Root Canal Therapy:

Root Canal Therapy is treatment to repair and save a tooth when the root has become damaged or infected. The procedure involves removing the damaged area of the tooth (the pulp), cleaning and disinfecting it and then filling and sealing it.

 

The common causes affecting the pulp are a cracked tooth, a deep cavity, repeated dental treatment to the tooth or trauma. If left untreated, the infection of the pulp will travel down the canals in the roots of the tooth and damage the bone around the tooth which can cause pain, swelling and possibly loss of the tooth. With root canal therapy and a crown after the therapy, many teeth can be saved and extractions can be avoided.

 

What does getting root canal therapy involve?
After local anesthesia, Dr. Henifar will open the tooth to remove diseased areas. The pulp chamber and root canals of the tooth are then cleaned, shaped and filled for an ideal seal. Root canal therapy may take multiple appointments depending on the tooth and extend of the infection. It is highly recommended to restore the tooth permanently (with a crown in most cases) as soon as root canal therapy is finished.

Sports Guard:

Custom made mouth guards are essential in the prevention of athletic oral/facial injuries. The greatest number of injuries in youth sports are injuries to the mouth. While not required in sports such as basketball, studies have shown that basketball has one of the highest incidences of mouth injury of any sport.

 

Sports guards are mouth-pieces worn when participating in sports to reduce the risk of tooth injury or tooth loss during collision. At Encino Tower Dental, the doctor will fabricate custom-made sports-guard for precise adaptation for the teeth and superior comfort while ensuring higher thickness of the material in high-risk areas of the mouth for more protection.
