Outstanding Oral Health Care for West Covina Families
The kind of skilled and compassionate dentistry West Covina residents and people from throughout the San Gabriel Valley seek out is available here at A-Z Dental Care. Under the leadership of Dr. Mirhamid Salek, we are a community-oriented dental office dedicated to fostering outstanding oral health for patients of all ages. Our patients come from all walks of life and from throughout the area, including Azusa, Baldwin Park, Glendora, and La Puente.
Dr. Salek is a dentist in West Covina known for diligence and a gentle, patient-focused approach. A widely respected general dentist and orofacial pain specialist, he understands that all of his patients are individuals with differing needs and priorities. An experienced family dentist, he is able to handle the special needs of both the youngest and oldest of patients; it’s his pleasure to provide care for entire families from toddlers to great-grandparents.
Affordable Dental Care in West Covina
Dentistry is crucially important and it goes well beyond simply having a healthy smile. The link between poor oral health and serious systemic illnesses like diabetes, heart disease, and strokes has become well known in the medical field. At the same time, we also know that cost is the most common reason individuals put off going to the dentist. People shouldn’t have to choose between their pocketbook and their health, so we are dedicated to providing the high quality affordable dental care West Covina patients often need.
We take most types of insurance, including Medicare and Denti-Cal. When needed, payment plans are also available. In addition, we offer free first-time consultations for new patients. If you’re an individual or a family on a budget, an affordable dentist in West Covina is right here.
Comprehensive Dentistry in West Covina
Patients have a broad range of needs and concerns, and Dr. Salek is able to handle just about all of them. Of course, prevention is always better than cure, so the doctor emphasizes the need for regular cleanings and check-ups so that small problems can be addressed long before they become serious issues. For a number of reasons, however, patients often require more advanced care, and Dr. Salek is able to provide a broad range of dental services. These include:
Root Canals. This common procedure is also one of the best dental solutions there is. When tooth decay has become so advanced that a simple filling won’t address the problem, a root canal remains the best and only means we have for saving the tooth. In this procedure, the outer portion of the tooth is removed and the root is preserved. Then, a temporary crown is added, later the patient is given a permanent crown that performs essentially the same as a real tooth. Root canal has developed a highly exaggerated unpleasant reputation but, when properly performed, it should be no more uncomfortable than getting an ordinary filling.
Dental Implants. Sometimes teeth are knocked out due to trauma, or a severely decayed tooth cannot be saved and a surgical extraction may become necessary. In cases where it’s appropriate, we provide traditional dentures and bridgework. However, dentists and medical experts agree that dental implants are the gold standard in tooth replacement. They not only provide benefits in terms of convenience and appearance, they are also the only form of tooth replacement that stops the potentially severe bone loss that results from missing teeth. We offer a full range of options for dental implants.
Orofacial Pain. TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders are the most common cause of the facial joint pain that many patients experience, but it has many forms and treatments. Dr. Salek notes that less knowledgeable dentists can sometimes make an incorrect diagnosis of the particular issue and may propose the wrong solution which can lead to unnecessary heartache and expense. As a leading expert in orofacial problems, Dr. Salek is easily the best dentist in West Covina and the San Gabriel Valley when it comes to diagnosing and treating a large range of conditions. These include not just standard chronic jaw pain but also less well-known issues such as neuralgia, neuropathy (nerve damage), and burning mouth syndrome.
Oral Medicine. According to the Oral Cancer Foundation, well over 10,000 Americans may die of an oral cancer in a given year. That’s more than the toll from such well-known malignancies as cervical cancer and Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Fortunately for San Gabriel Valley residents, Dr. Salek is an outstanding specialist who has identified cancers in many patients. In cases where problems turn out to be from something other than a malignancy, he is an expert at dealing with such painful issues that tend to attack the lining of the mouth, aka the oral mucosa. From nasty cold sores to herpes outbreaks, to painful lesions caused by gastrointestinal disorders to potentially serious issues which attack the gums, Dr. Salek is able to provide care that successfully treats these painful and annoying disorders.
Dentures. While dental implants are the preferred long-term solution for missing teeth, they are not right for every patient. The procedure involves a minor oral surgery that might not be advisable for some people, and there are a number of reasons why a patient might decide to go in a different direction. Regardless, teeth must be replaced to protect the good health of the patient for numerous reasons, including proper nutrition and social stigma associated with missing teeth. Dr. Salek is an expert at ensuring that dentures are appropriate replacements for lost teeth and are as comfortable and convenient as possible.
Snoring and Sleep Apnea. Snoring is music to no one’s ears! The noise can keep partners up at night and even force them into separate rooms. Much more seriously, it can be a sign of sleep apnea, a serious health problem that increases fatigue as well as a substantially increased risk of many serious overall health problems. The good news is that many patients have benefited from Dr. Salek’s treatment and advice on dealing with the breathing issues involved with snoring and sleep apnea.
