What Makes a Root Canal Necessary?
The following are the most common factors contributing to a need for root canal treatment:
The average adult mouth is made to hold 28 teeth, but by the age of 18 most individuals will have 32. The extra teeth are the third molars, often called the “wisdom teeth.” They, like the other molars, were designed to help grind up food before swallowing. Since there is often not enough space for the third molars when they erupt, they can cause pain, chewing problems, and crowding of other teeth. Other concerns can also develop, even in the event an individual has room in their mouth for the wisdom teeth. Although not everyone needs these teeth removed, it is important to have them evaluated to determine if they should be extracted.
What Is Sedation Dentistry?
We offer both IV sedation and oral sedation options to help you experience a calmer, more comfortable dental visit. IV sedation is often known as sleep dentistry, and this technique involves administering medicine intravenously through the vein. Oral sedation is often referred to as relaxation dentistry, and this method involves taking sedative medication by mouth or having it placed under the tongue to dissolve. Both approaches are designed to alleviate anxiety before a dental procedure and allow Dr. Shen to work more effectively. Your care is our highest priority, and if you experience dental anxiety and fear, sedation may be the solution for you.

I had 4 fillings done by Dr. Donian Shen this week. She is incredible, full of energy and very knowledgable. She explained pros and cons of all the procedure she was about to do, gave me options to choose from.I had a very huge filling to do which was so close to the nerve. She spent an hour to fix it (other dentist would have spent 15 min on just on filling) but she made sure the filling stick so there would be no leaking. She had done layers of fillings and in between lazer dryined and what now. She is a pro in my opinion

I lived in Antioch and I took me quite long time to go to Dr. Shen’s clinic if you know the fact that the higher way 4 (from Hillcrest to Somersville) is the most congested route in bayarea and ranked 27th in US as I heard from KGO this morning. Anyway, my three kids are happy to visit her office instead of two clinics we visited close to our home. Do not ask me why and they just be happy with her and we just booked another appoint in the coming spring break.

It has almost been one year since my last review and I am still nothing but pleased with Dr. Shen and the staff at her office. One thing I would like to add to my last review is that Dr. Shen places a great deal of importance on education. My previous dentist was very good at telling me what I should and should not do to maintain good oral hygiene, but never bothered to explain to me why I should do these things. This has not the case with Dr. Shen.

I had a really painful toothache and Dr. Shen scheduled me right away. I was so grateful that they understood my pain and wanted to fix me up immediately. This is a dentist that really cares!
Jane.J, Davis, CA
I fell and slammed my tooth into the concrete, I was terrified of losing my tooth, blood was flowing. Yuck! Dr. Shen fit me in as emergency, and stabilized my tooth. As a result of Dr. Shen’s extreme efforts I was able to save my tooth! I highly recommend Dr. Shen!
