Frequently Asked Questions

When it comes to dental treatment, most people understandably have questions about what they can expect and what our practice can do for their smile. Below, you’ll find answers to many of the questions that Dr. Farian is regularly asked. If you still don’t see the information you’re looking for, you are always welcome to contact us directly here in Broadview Heights.

What’s the best way to replace my missing teeth?

In most cases, Dr. Farian will recommend dental implants because of their revitalizing oral health benefits, their impressive longevity, and their seamless aesthetic value. He is capable of performing every step of this procedure right here in our Broadview Heights office for maximum patient convenience. However, it is possible that dental implants may not be a good fit for a patient’s personal needs. If so, our practice also offers more traditional reconstructive options like bridges and dentures.

I’m experiencing serious tooth pain. Will it need to be removed?

Excessive dental discomfort and sensitivity that seems to be located around a single tooth usually means that there’s a serious infection present. Thankfully, extraction is not the only possible solution – root canal therapy (also simply known as a ‘root canal’) can remove harmful bacteria from within the tooth and help the patient maintain it in their natural smile.

Are root canals painful?

Despite its bad reputation, today’s modern techniques and technologies have made this service very comfortable. Also, Dr. Farian has completed thousands of root canals over the course of his 30 year dental career, which means you’ll be in highly capable hands throughout the procedure.

What should I do after I have a tooth extracted?

Dr. Farian will provide comprehensive post-operative instructions, but the most important guidelines to remember are that you shouldn’t disturb the wound, that you should avoid spitting or sucking through straws, and that you shouldn’t participate in any strenuous activity for at least the first 24 hours after your procedure.

Can you improve the way my smile looks?

Of course. Our practice is home to several cosmetic services that can help your teeth shine again, including porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, metal-free restorative work, and more.

Going to the dentist makes me nervous. How can I relax?

We offer multiple sedation options that can lessen those frustrating emotions and help you achieve a deeply comfortable state during your procedure, including nitrous oxide (“laughing gas”) and oral sedation.

Will you take my dental insurance?

Our team will work with major PPO insurance plans in order to file patient claims and simplify the reimbursement process. For more information, please visit our new patients page.
