There are all sorts of crowns and bridges in San Diego, CA, that Dr. Daniel Stevens, Dr. Christina Tsang, and Dr. Vahid Tabibzadeh of Omni Dental can use to solve your dental problem. If you are thinking of having some work done, here are some options that you may want to talk with your dentist about before making your decision.

Options Beyond the Dental Crown

Technology and scientific advancement have given dentists several options to choose from for dental and cosmetic work. Here are three options that you can think through the next time you visit your dentist.

  • The first option you should know about is what is called an inlay. This option is a tooth restoration method that is great for issues located on the top of the tooth. Your dentist will make an impression so he can fashion the inlay that will be bonded to your tooth.
  • Onlays are your second option. If the dentist finds that the damage has spilled over the top of the tooth, they will often use an onlay to strengthen and protect the rest of the tooth. This area is all known as the bite area.
  • Porcelain veneers are another option for crowns and bridges in San Diego, CA. Veneers are perfect for frontal teeth and can easily be copied to mimic the appearance of natural teeth.

There are a lot of different treatments that are available in modern dental offices. If you have crowns and bridges in San Diego, CA, work done, you will want to ask about these new methods. You will often find that they are easy to do and can be done in one visit. If you have any questions, we invite you to call us at Omni Dental today. Our number is (619) 224-5000.

When it strikes, the pain of tooth sensitivity is enough to stop you in your tracks. The trio of brilliant dentists, Dr. Daniel Stevens, Dr. Christina Tsang, and Dr. Vahid Tabibzadeh of Omni Dental in San Diego, CA, know how to diagnose and solve tooth sensitivity.

What is Tooth Sensitivity?

Tooth sensitivity is a condition that causes the teeth to become more sensitive to heat, cold, or food. Tooth pain like this can happen to us at any time during our lifetime but can be exasperated or happen more often when we're older. Tooth sensitivity can be consistent when a person eats hot but not cold dishes and vice versa. The pain may also be random and unexplainable.

Common Causes of Tooth Sensitivity

Tooth sensitivity has many causes.

  • Enamel erosion
  • Cold food or drink
  • Hot food or drink
  • Brushing too hard with the wrong kind of toothbrush
  • Grinding the teeth at night
  • Teeth with small cracks in them
  • Highly-sugary foods or consuming sugary foods regularly

Temporary Solutions Until You Can See Your Omni Dental San Diego Dentist

Whenever you have tooth sensitivity that becomes abnormal for you, bothersome, increases in intensity or frequency, you should always have it checked out by a trusted San Diego dentist. They will rule out any significant issues or solve little ones until they become more extensive.

Until you can see your dentist, there are a few temporary solutions that can help.

  • Avoid the bothersome foods that trigger it.
  • Try chewing or sipping the offending foods on the other side of your mouth.
  • Brush your teeth with only a soft-bristled toothbrush.
  • When brushing, don't push as hard near the teeth that are usually sensitive.


If any pieces of your tooth come off, it's imperative you schedule an appointment as soon as you can. Depending on the degree of the broken part, you'll need treatment to keep infection and bacteria from getting inside the tooth and down to the root. You may not feel a broken tooth until you feel the sharp edge of the tooth with your tongue.

Dr. Daniel Stevens, Dr. Christina Tsang, and Dr. Vahid Tabibzadeh of Omni Dental in San Diego, CA, stand ready to help you with any tooth sensitivity issues you might be experiencing. Give them a call today on (619) 224-5000 to schedule an appointment!

Invisalign is an alternative to traditional wire braces and uses transparent, BPA-free plastic aligners to move teeth into their correct position. Because Invisalign is a system that's virtually invisible, these orthodontics are a popular choice among those insecure about their smile. You can also preview the end result of your new look on a computer in our San Diego, CA office before beginning treatment.

If you've put off obtaining orthodontics to not feel embarrassed or like you're putting your life on hold, consider talking to Dr. Daniel Stevens, Dr. Christina Tsang, Dr. Vahid Tabibzadeh at Omni Dental about Invisalign.

Straighten Your Smile Discreetly

At Omni Dental, when choosing Invisalign, you can straighten your smile without anyone noticing. The treatment process typically involves several steps in our San Diego, CA office between diagnosis, planning, molding your bite, 3D computer modeling, manufacturing the appliances, results, and retention. The aligners are also removable, allowing for the freedom to play sports and the pleasure of eating a meal with fewer food restrictions. Since Invisalign is discreet, you're likely to feel a boost in confidence and self-esteem as you watch your smile transform. For optimal results, Invisalign must be worn for 20-22 hours a day for two weeks at a time and removed to brush, floss, and rinse. Treatment time varies from six months to a year depending on the individual.

Invisalign is for (eligible) adults and teenagers. To determine if you fall into this category, get started by scheduling a consultation with Dr. Daniel Stevens, Dr. Christina Tsang, or Dr. Vahid Tabibzadeh. Each of our dentists will discuss the application process in detail during the oral examination and address questions or concerns. For more information about Invisalign and other services provided by Omni Dental, visit our website. Please call 619-224-5000 for appointment scheduling in our San Diego, CA office.

In 2020, the American Cancer Society predicts that about 53,000 individuals will develop oral cancer. More common in men than women, this occurs in stages and refers to abnormalities that appear on the lips, inner-cheek lining, tongue, and gums, as well as the roof or floor of the mouth. Causes of oral cancer include excessive alcohol or tobacco use, too much sun exposure, family history, or Human papillomavirus (HPV). If you live in the San Diego, CA area, and think you're at risk for developing this disease, schedule a consultation at Omni Dental to discuss the benefits of screening. Dr. Daniel Stevens, Dr. Christina Tsang, and Dr. Vahid Tabibzadeh can help you prevent symptoms before they become a problem.
 

Symptoms of Oral Cancer

Please visit our San Diego, CA, office if you experience one or more of the following:

  • A mouth sore that doesn't heal
  • Difficulty chewing and swallowing
  • Mouth pain that doesn't disappear
  • A lump in the throat or thickening of cheek-lining
  • White or red patches on the tongue, tonsils, gums, or mouth-lining

During your visit, our doctors will ask about your lifestyle habits and examine the head, neck, and soft tissues inside the mouth.
 

Oral Cancer Treatment

It's critical to catch oral cancer in the early stages when it's most treatable. It gets diagnosed through a screening test that we perform on location at Omni Dental, and treatment may include a change in diet or medication to alleviate pain. Alternative methods may also consist of chemo or radiation, depending on the severity.

 

It's vital to remember you don't have oral cancer simply because our doctors at Omni Dental recommend a screening test. They may suggest one to lessen your risk of developing the disease, which can potentially be life-saving. For more information about oral cancer, screening, and other services provided by Omni Dental, visit our website. For appointment scheduling with Dr. Daniel Stevens, Dr. Christina Tsang, and Dr. Vahid Tabibzadeh in our San Diego, CA office, please call 619-224-5000.
