Dr. Zaremski grew up in Palos Verdes, California. He wanted to be a dentist from the early age of twelve because his father’s dentist had “intriguing tools”. The son of an engineer, Dr. Zaremski soon set his goals to pursue a career in dentistry. The profession offered him the ability to restore smiles, and provide the best oral care treatments to improve people’s health and life styles. Dr. Zaremski moved from Southern California to attend the University of California, Berkeley where he majored in bio chemistry. While attending school, Dr. Zaremski volunteered at Highlands Hospital, in Oakland, California in the Emergency Oral Care Department to learn about “oral triage” care. He became fascinated how oral surgeons were able to re-engineer patients’ jaws and restore dental function after a tragedy.
Dr. Eric Zaremski promotes the link between oral and systemic health that has been established for over a century. We are committed to helping you achieve a healthy mouth so that you can enjoy a healthy body as well. Our dentist offers ozone therapy and minimally invasive dental treatments to preserve your dental integrity.
By utilizing air abrasion Dr. Eric Zaremski and our team have replaced the need for a dental drill. Air abrasion is minimally invasive to your teeth and allows us to preserve more of your natural smile.
Did you know that you can have a cavity filled with no drills, no needles, no shots, and no pain? Thanks to micro air abrasion dentistry, we can painlessly remove the decayed or damaged portion of the tooth without the use of a dental drill.
Micro air abrasion instead uses a concentrated blast of air that contains very fine particles of aluminum oxide, which is a common ingredient in many toothpastes. Working in a method similar to a sandblaster, air abrasion blasts away the decay and leaves your healthy tooth intact. This results in greater conservation of your natural tooth structure, which helps to keep your tooth healthy and strong. Because micro air abrasion uses a simple spray of air and powder, it is minimally invasive, gentle, quiet, and fast.
Our patients find micro air abrasion to be much more comfortable and pleasant than traditional drilling as it eliminates the noise, smells, and vibration that typically result from using a dental drill. And perhaps the best part of all is that we usually do not need to use anesthetic, so you have no need to feel nervous about getting a shot.
Dr. Eric Zaremski uses Dexis digital X-rays to view your entire smile in a matter of seconds and limited radiation exposure. You can learn more about the benefits of digital radiography by contacting SmileMarin at 415.461.3141 or speaking with one of us at your next appointment.
Digital X-rays are one of the advanced diagnostic tools we use to provide you with the best possible care. Digital radiography has changed the way we take dental X-rays by making the process faster, more comfortable, and more convenient than ever before. Digital X-rays use a digital sensor to take images of your teeth, unlike traditional X-rays that use film. Digital X-rays use significantly less radiation than conventional film X-rays, and they require the use of no chemicals for developing the images. Our dentist can then instantly view the high-quality images on monitors right in the treatment room to provide you with efficient, accurate diagnoses and care. Our team is able to use digital radiography to identify and diagnose several types of dental problems, such as:
- Decay in between teeth
- Developmental abnormalities
- Improper tooth root positioning
- Cysts and abscesses
- Fractures in existing fillings
- Infection in the tooth nerves
- Bone loss
The DIAGNOdent® laser helps Dr. Eric Zaremski detect cavities that may not be visible to the naked eye.
Laser dentistry involves the use of dental lasers to complete dental treatments more comfortably, quickly, and effectively. At our dental practice, we are dedicated to always providing you with the best possible dental care. Our dentist and dental team continuously update their education and our office to provide you with a more pleasant and efficient dental visit. We are proud to offer laser dental treatment to ensure that your dental experience is comfortable and positive.
Lasers can be used for a number of dental treatments. During your visit, our dentist may recommend laser dentistry to:
- Treat periodontal disease by removing bacteria and infected tissue
- Cure (harden) a dental filling
- Remove the decayed or damaged portion of a tooth
- Treat cold sores and canker sores
- Speed up teeth whitening
- Recontour the gum line
Crooked, overcrowded teeth are not only unpleasant, they can also negatively affect your oral health by trapping bacteria and creating a painful bite. Many patients develop crooked teeth when their permanent teeth erupt (break through the gum line), and others develop bite and alignment issues later in life.
The most common causes of a crooked smile are:
- Lack of space: Your temporary and permanent teeth may erupt improperly if the dental arch is not big enough to accommodate them.
- Genetics: Some mouths are predisposed by DNA to develop overbites, underbites, and crooked teeth.
- Early bad habits: Prolonged thumb sucking, bottle feeding, and oral thrusting can push teeth out of alignment and cause bad bites.
- Premature tooth loss: If you lose a temporary tooth before the permanent tooth is ready to erupt, the surrounding teeth can shift to fill the space. Tooth loss can also result in bone loss, weakening the dental arch.
- Wisdom teeth: When wisdom teeth are ready to erupt, most patients’ mouths do not have sufficient space for them. If the wisdom teeth are not removed at the appropriate time, they can become impacted or push the other teeth out of alignment.
- Tooth and jaw trauma: A physical blow to the teeth or jaw could knock out some teeth and push your bite out of alignment.
