Benign

The mild or non-malignant form of an illness.

Crown

The part of the tooth covered by enamel and not covered by the gum. A “dental crown” also refers to an artificial tooth used to cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t enough tooth left. A dental crown can be constructed of porcelain, ceramic or various alloys. Crowns can be used to cover a dental implant, attach a bridge, protect a weak tooth from breaking, or restore a tooth that is already broken. A crown may also cover a tooth that is discolored or badly shaped.

Root Canal

Space inside the root of a tooth that contains nerves and blood vessels. “Root canal” also refers to a special dental procedure used to save a tooth with a diseased nerve. After a dentist removes the pulp of the diseased tooth, the root canal is cleaned and sealed off to protect it. Then the dentist places a crown over the tooth to make it stronger.

Great experience. Everyone was calm and very reassuring during both my consultation and wisdom teeth removal visit. Despite my anxiety, everyone spent their time seeing if I had questions and tried to create a relaxing atmosphere before I had to go through with the surgery. Highly recommend anyone coming here. Clean and modern office with a 10/10 experience throughout.

Dr. Zadeh is not only a very qualified oral surgeon, he is a very warm and easy to communicate with kind of person.

My son recently got his wisdom teeth extracted. Dr. Zaheh made my son feel very comfortable and relaxed. The procedure did not last long at all which led to a quick recovery. My son had absolutely no swelling which was unbelievable! He hardly experienced any pain either. He went out with friends a few days later and will recommend others to Dr. Zadeh!
