General Dentistry Gilbert, AZ
Healthy, Beautiful Smiles for Your Whole Family
Earning Trust – One Patient at a Time
Our first goal, from the moment you walk in the door, is to earn a feeling of trust. Our general dentist believes the absolute best dentistry we can provide will only take place when there is a strong bond of trust with our patients, and we’re all working together toward the common goals of healthy teeth and gums and a beautiful smile.
Dentistry for AdultsWhether your dental needs are a complete exam, cleaning, or anything in between, our staff will provide you with exceptional care. Your six-month visits keep your teeth clean and healthy and help prevent problems down the road by letting us spot them early. We can address your unique concerns and develop a relationship that ensures continuity of care. We look forward to meeting you!
Dentistry For Children
Our pediatric dentist strives to make children of all ages feel at ease and enjoy themselves, so bring the whole family along! You can rest assured your child will receive the latest advancements in children’s dentistry, delivered with caring, thoughtfulness, and compassion. Our kids dentist looks forward to seeing them for their first dental visit when they cut their first tooth and watching them grow year after year.
Relax Through Your Care
While we take great pride in being able to deliver painless injections, some patients are naturally anxious at even the thought of a needle. If this sounds like you, we offer sedation dentistry that may help. One hour before your visit you take a pill that we dispense to you. You reach a level of sedation that allows you to respond to questions but relax through your entire visit. This is also ideal for those who have a busy schedule and want to get all their treatment done in one visit. Another option is nitrous oxide for a lighter level of sedation. We want you to feel comfortably relaxed throughout treatment.
Do You Find Yourself Falling Asleep on the Job?If you or a loved one find yourself falling asleep during the day, or snoring loudly or having interrupted breathing during sleep, it may be sleep apnea. For those who have been diagnosed with this condition, modern dentistry has new treatment options such as oral appliances. These have been successful for over 90% of the patients who use them and are an alternative to CPAP machines. Ask us about this treatment and start getting the rest you deserve.
A Healthy Smile, A Healthy BodyDid you know that the cause of most tooth loss is not decay? It’s gum disease. And recent studies have established a link between gum disease and your overall health. The good news is that gum disease can be treated successfully, often without surgery. Our commitment to you includes paying meticulous attention to all of your needs for healthy teeth and gums so you not only look your best but also have optimum overall health.
The Isolite™ Dental Isolation System
This multi-function unit’s most important feature is suction that removes droplets and aerosols from the air during treatment. Additionally, its flexible mouthpiece provides an increased level of dental isolation and includes a light for improved illumination of the inside of your mouth. For comfort, there is a built-in bite block to assist you in keeping your mouth open. Isolite was designed to make your treatment quicker and easier, not only eliminating multiple hand instruments previously used by family dentists and dental assistants but also shortening your time in the chair and in our office.
We are pleased to offer dental crowns made with CEREC™, a highly precise computer milling machine that makes crowns right in the office, in about an hour. No more temporaries, additional visits, or crowns that don’t seem to fit right. These modern restorations dramatically reduce cracking, lowering the likelihood of needing future root canal treatment. Due to the custom design and precise fit, CEREC restorations are bonded to the tooth with the optimum strength available. If you have ever had a crown placed the traditional way, we are sure you will notice the difference!
The Cleanest Your Teeth Can Be
We use a Cavitron™ Scaler to aid in removing deposits of plaque and calculus (tartar) from your teeth, especially under the gumline and even in deep pockets, in the case of gum disease treatments. This hand tool uses high-frequency vibrations to enable us to remove deposits on your teeth faster than with regular scaling instruments. Your teeth have never felt so clean! As a bonus, most patients report less discomfort with the Cavitron™ Scaler.
Oral Cancer – Minimize Your RiskIt’s an often unknown statistic that oral cancer causes one American death every hour. For 40 years, this mortality rate hasn’t changed. But it’s not all bad news. Early detection means a 90% cure rate for oral cancer. That’s why we conduct a visual screening for oral cancer at every six-month checkup and cleaning. If the hygienist or doctor sees anything that gives them cause for concern, they’ll refer you to an oral surgeon. This screening could literally save your life!
TMJ/TMD TreatmentDental occlusion (i.e. your bite) is sometimes the cause of frequent headaches, aching or popping jaws, shoulder pain, and neck pain. If your teeth have been ground down over the years or lost due to accident or dental disease, your jaw is not able to settle into a naturally relaxed position. This causes tension in the muscles in the jaw, and can lead to a variety of pain that you may have already grown accustomed to living with. The dentist can restore your dental occlusion so the jaw can be returned to the position that nature intended.
Protect Your Teeth During SportsDid you know that 5 million teeth are knocked out each year in the United States alone? Many sports can be dangerous without the proper protection. The one-size-fits-all mouthguards found in stores just don’t fit very well. Custom-made sports mouthguards fit well, protect well, and can be worn for any sport.
Beautiful Dentures for Confident Smiles
If you’re looking for affordable dentures for missing teeth, Dr. Saydyk can design and fit beautiful-looking dentures that don’t slip! He is skilled at fitting the denture so well that you don’t have to worry about the foods you’re eating or that your dentures might shift when you talk.
Painless Injections? Is This Possible?
In a word, yes! Even if you aren’t nervous about going to the dentist – who wants to feel even a little pain? Nobody! We are proud to be one of the first dental practices to employ the very latest in dental technology that helps to eliminate the fear of needles. It’s called Vibraject™. This device sends gentle vibrations to the area of the injection. The vibrations are picked up by the nerve endings before the sensation of the needle. This essentially eliminates any pain messages and allows us to give you a comfortable pain-free injection. Our patients routinely tell us they “didn’t feel a thing!”
Xylitol Can Help Reduce CavitiesXylitol is a natural substance found in fruits, berries, mushrooms, and other vegetables. Our own bodies produce from 5 to 10 grams every day. It is particularly effective in combating tooth decay caused by eating foods high in sugars and starches. Over 25 years of clinical testing confirms that xylitol is the best sweetener for teeth. It can be taken in the form of chewing gum, tablets, toothpaste, mouthwash, or even candy. It’s also very helpful for those suffering allergies and also comes in a nasal spray. In our practice we offer and encourage our patients to use xylitol products. The results have been amazing.
In-House Tooth Extractions
If a tooth is extensively damaged or infected, or if third molars (wisdom teeth) are impacted, tooth extraction is the solution to the problem. We do most tooth extractions or wisdom teeth removal in our office, so you will not be inconvenienced with a referral to another office. Our compassionate manner will make you feel comfortable in our care for this treatment.
