Preventative Dental Services
A preventive program is a cooperative effort involving you, Dr. Tatarin, and his dental team. Preventing disease is always better than treating disease. By actively preventing the onset, progress and recurrence of dental disease, you can maintain a healthy, beautiful smile throughout your lifetime.
Preventing dental disease starts at home with good oral hygiene and a balanced diet. It continues at our office by the efforts of Dr. Andow and his dental hygienists to promote, restore, and maintain your oral health.
Prevention includes regular dental exams, cleanings, and x-rays. Prevention helps avoid serious and costly dental problems and is the key to having a healthy, confident and beautiful smile. Regular prevention is truly your best investment.
It’s great news that the incidence of tooth decay has significantly diminished over the years due to the use of fluorides and an increase in patient awareness. However, teeth are still susceptible to decay, infection, and breakage and sometimes need to be restored back to health. Through improved techniques and modern technology, we are now able to offer more options for restoring a tooth back to its normal shape, appearance and function.
Should your teeth ever require a restorative treatment, you can rest assured knowing Dr. Tatarin will always discuss with you the available options and recommend what he believes to be the most comfortable and least invasive treatment. Providing you with excellent care is our number one priority when creating your beautiful smile.
In the past decade there has been a dramatic interest in cosmetic dentistry. We all realize that having a healthy, bright, beautiful smile enhances our appearance and allows us to smile with confidence. Thanks to the advances in modern cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Tatarin is able to improve your teeth and smile with quick, comfortable and surprisingly affordable treatments.

Sedation dentistry is a process used to establish a relaxed, easy and calm state through the use of sedative drugs. Sedative drugs (tranquillizers, depressants, anti-anxiety medications, nitrous oxide, etc.) can be administered in a variety of ways. Traditionally, intravenous (IV) sedation and nitrous oxide (laughing gas) were predominantly used to sedate a dental patient. Today, sedation dentistry has evolved to be even more conducive to a relaxing experience. Patients have alternatives to the traditional modalities of inhalation (nitrous oxide) and IVs, such as those offering a “no needle” (no injection) approach that many people find more appealing. This “no needle” method is called oral conscious sedation.

The Benefits of Sedation Dentistry
One of the major benefits of sedation dentistry is that you often feel like your dental visit lasts only a few minutes, when in fact it might have taken hours to perform. If you’re reluctant to change the appearance of your smile because you’re afraid or anxious about undergoing long dental procedures, sedation dentistry can be a benefit because it will provide a comfortable atmosphere during the treatment process.

His goal is to provide the safest environment for the removal of mercury amalgam (silver) fillings, to provide the most biocompatible materials for his patients well-being and to provide education and guidance to his patients concerning their oral and overall health.

Holistic, also called Biological or Biocompatible, dentistry is a philosophy that recognizes the teeth and associated oral structures are a part of the whole body. Holistic dentistry’s basic premise is that the dentist must consider the mouth, including the teeth, gums and jaws as integrated parts of the whole body system. Holistic dentistry also relates the impact of toxic materials to dental and physiological health. Mercury, a toxic substance found in dental amalgams, is the most toxic non-radioactive element on earth. Holistic dentists understand it is of utmost importance to safely remove these amalgams and use a replacement that will be biocompatible to the patient.
