Happy Halloween from Dr. Galaif’s office!

Halloween is a time when scary things populate front yards, and run the streets.  However, going to the dentist should not be scary.  At Daniel N. Galaif, DDS our warm and caring staff is focused on your comfort and safety.  From our Encino, California office, we have beautiful views that provide a relaxing setting during your dental visit.  Whether it’s a routine cleaning or more in depth work, we work to minimize your discomfort or anxiety with the state-of-the-art numbing procedures, nitrous oxide, or even anesthesia if you prefer…

Sedation at our Office

Are you afraid to go to the Dentist?  Do you have some anxiety about your dental visits?  Are you tired of having to make multiple dental visits to complete one course of treatment?  Our office is using new technology along with sedation dentistry, so you can now have all your dental needs addressed and completed in one visit.  You can also be asleep, and experience no discomfort at all.

Let me tell you about a recent case in our Encino, California office where we completed porcelain onlays and fillings for one patient all in one visit, all done at the same time while the patient was completely sedated.  Here is a video of this exciting day in our office:

With an anesthesiologist present, we pre-scanned all of the teeth, then we prepped the teeth and did a post scan of them.  At that point we were able to design and mill the onlays, then we placed them in the patient’s mouth to ensure a perfect fit.  Next it was time to add customized shading to onlays, and after they were stained, glazed, and fired, we completed the cementation.  All of this was done in one single office visit, and the patient was sedated and comfortable the entire time.  The patient did not need to have any temporaries, and will not need to return to our office for another visit to have us cement the final restoration

We have an anesthesiologist present in the office, so your comfort and safety is the highest priority.  All the dental work is metal free, and the onlays look and feel like real teeth.

Our technology is state-of-the-art, and we would be happy to demonstrate it for you at your next visit.  Give us a call at (818) 789-6789, or email info@DrGalaif.com to make an appointment today!

Groundbreaking Technology!

I have been in dentistry for more than 25 years, and I am excited to share with you one of the most exciting new innovations, Same Day Crowns and Onlays!

Welcome to the new age of Dentistry!  We have cutting-edge dental technology that allows us to provide you with a new ceramic crown or onlay in one, single office appointment.  Right here in our Encino, California office.

Think about that.  Up until now, you would come in for impressions, which would then be sent out to a lab.  You would be fitted with a temporary, which you would wear for several weeks until your next appointment. You would not be able to eat on that side of your mouth.  Then, at that follow-up visit, you would finally have your permanent crown or onlay in place.

With our new E4D technology we can scan your tooth, design the crown or onlay, and then create it right here in our dental office.  We perform any necessary adjustments, cement it in place and send you on your way, with your permanent restoration completed, start to finish, in a single visit.  There are no temporaries, and  no additional follow-up appointments needed.  These new, state-of-the-art crowns and onlays are all ceramic, so there is no need for any metal and no black line around your gums.  They look and feel just like your own tooth!

This new technology is truly groundbreaking, and we would be happy to demonstrate it for you at your next visit.  Give us a call at (818) 789-6789, or email info@DrGalaif.com to make an appointment today!
