An alternative to root canal therapy is the direct or indirect pulp cap procedure. This is a nerve protective procedure that has been used for many decades with many different materials and limited success. Finally a modern material has been developed that has revolutionized the pulp cap procedure: Theracal LC by Bisco, a leader in modern dental material technology.
At State of the Art Comfort Dentistry we follow a minimally invasive treatment approach. This is why when the nerve is healthy we avoid condemning the tooth to root canal therapy by doing a direct pulp cap procedure. Our success rate has dramatically increase by the use of a newly available material called Theracal LC. This non-toxic and biocompatible procedure effectively seals the nerve and allows it to heal. In addition this innovative material helps the tooth to reform new healthy dentin in the tooth.
By following strict disinfection protocols, and using the best bonding adhesive agents available we are able to create a bacteria impenetrable seal that allows the nerve the best chance at healing. By restoring the tooth in a Biomimetic matter the filling works in harmony with the tooth and does not put any negative forces and pressure on the delicate pulp cap interface.

I was very impressed by the friendly, personal atmosphere. From the moment I walked in the door, I was treated as a guest, addressed by my name and offered coffee. I didn't even have to sit and wait at all, as I was called in right away. I loved not having to fill out my information 10 times; the forms were pre-printed. The complimentary chapsticks were a nice touch to an already wonderful experience. Thanks so much!
I've always had bad experiences at the dentist before. I could never find one that made me feel good about the experience unitl I went to Dr. Alex. Thank you Dr. Alex for everything. Thank you to your staff for making me feel at home.
Before Dr. Shvartsman my experience with dentists was not the best. I cannot overstate the peace of mind I now enjoy by having a dentist that I can have total confidence in. Dr. Shvartsman is the best!!!
Very pleased, the dentist understood my concerns and gave me a complete list of things I need to have done. This list was made of things I need to do right away and the long term repairs I may need.
I love the service that Dr. Alex Shvartsman and his staff gives. They are the best....
