Dentin Tubules:

Dentin tubules are microscopic channels that radiate from the underside of the enamel surface to the inside of the tooth, called the pulp.

These small, hollow canals in the dentin carry sensations from the outside of the tooth to the inside. This process is often blamed for the sensitivity patients feel when the enamel is worn down. The tubules transmit hot and cold sensation and sticky and acidic stimuli (food) can affect the unprotected parts of the tooth, which stimulates the nerves and cells inside the tooth, causing discomfort.

From Cavities to Stress-Grinding, the Pandemic Has Been Hell on Our Teeth

COVID-19 has been a public health crisis in more ways than the disease itself. It has had a significant impact on oral health. Many people are experiencing problems they have not before - teeth grinding, and jaw pain as well as skipping routine care due to fear of contracting the virus. It is safe to return to the dentist and you should continue to practice good oral health.

From Cavities to Stress-Grinding, the Pandemic Has Been Hell on Our Teeth Offices closed down. Massive PPE shortages. Dentists have been up against a lot during this past year. So are you ready to get back in the chair?

Happy Holidays!
Hooray, the COVID-19 vaccine with 95% efficacy are coming out! Unfortunately, most of us will not get them until May of 2021. Although the COVID vaccine can generate antibodies against the COVID-19, they still cannot prevent you from getting infected naturally. So, if you take the vaccine, you will not die from catching the virus, but you can still be a potential super spreader to infect others. Therefore, even if you took the COVID vaccine or recovered from a natural COVID-19 infection, please continue the practice of mask wearing, six-feet social distancing and avoiding indoor/outdoor gathering. Please be considerate that even if you have the immunity, most others don’t.

Dr. Fang and staffs at Prestige Endodontics will be COVID vaccinated, but to protect you, our patients, we will continue to follow the strictest infection control and continue to wear PPE/PAPR.

We will return to normal when we reach herd immunity, which will be after 60% of Americans getting COVID through vaccination or naturally acquired.

11/16/2020

Orange County is back in the Purple Tier. We will change back to more serious PPE for both patients and office personnel as before. Sorry for any inconvenience, safety first!

11/03/2020

During the pandemic, in order to avoid air hoses viral cross-contamination, we shall not offer nitrous oxide during our root canal treatments. Instead, twilight sleeping pills are great alternatives to help minimizing anxiety. If you are frightened about root canal treatments, please schedule a consultation for the anti-anxiety medications.

10/14/2020

If you are experiencing recent hot/cold teeth sensitivity, waking up with jaw muscle or joint soreness, or tooth structure cracking/chipping, you might be in risk of the COVID crack tooth syndrome. It is stress related behavior from the unforeseeable future of the COVID-19 pandemic, people are clenching and grinding their teeth more frequent and heavier than normal, especially during their sleeps. As a preventive measure, please ask your general dentist to prescribe you two sets of dental nightguards to protect your teeth from wearing away. The worst outcome of the COVID crack tooth syndrome will be either root canal treatment and crowns or extraction and implants. For the incomplete crown-root fracture, split tooth and vertical root fracture, root canal treatment will not be able to salvage the tooth, extraction for implants indicated. As of now, there are no dental imaging systems can detect crack root 50%+. Wearing nightguard every night will minimize your chance of losing more teeth.

Thank you Orange County residents for wearing masks, keeping 6ft social distancing and compassionately working toward Tier 3 and 4!
Prestige Endodontics too is monitoring the SARS-CoV-2 curve in OC to adjust our levels of PPE gears.
Thank you for keeping the curve low and flat, our clinic’s plastic liners/barriers are taken down and we are now changing from wearing jumpsuits into gowns! Because COVID-19 is an airborne virus, we shall continue wearing N95 and PAPR to protect everyone!
We recently installed the world’s only air purifying system that can filter out SARS virus 99.99% from the first pass and thus prevent virus recirculating in the air.

08/12/2020

We here at Prestige Endodontics have gone far and beyond for your safety!
Please follow our clinic’s COVID-19 infection control guidelines/instructions over the phone before your visit.
If you are running a fever, please tell us and stay at home for at least 14 days.
If you are diagnosed with high blood pressure, please take your high blood pressure medications daily.
Please wear mask in the public.
Please wash your hands as frequently and thoroughly as possible.

Even during the pandemic you will still need to go see your dentist, because......

Our practice is serious about preventing the spread of COVID-19. We refuse to work with any dental clinic that does not follow the same strict infection control guideline we abide to. Patients who are not following our COVID-19 survey/regulation will get turned away. Please, wear a mask in public!

People might be thinking we are over reacting with this COVID-19 pandemic. Nevertheless, we at Prestige Endodontics are willing to go extra mile, spending more on our side, to be more protective for our patients than less protective!🦠🔬🧪

We are ready for you!
Are you ready for us?
Appointed patient please come in comfortable clothing. Do not bring purse nor bag nor backpack, we have no place to store them. Come just yourself, no companion allowed. Pleas knock on door and our staff will open the door for you. We will take your temperature before asking you to put on the PPE we provided for you.
During the time of pandemic, we will phone both patient and patient’s primary dentist to pre-screen and to avoid difficult procedures by all means. If patient can not wait until after the pandemic is over, the difficult procedures will need to see the oral surgeon for tooth extraction.
If you are running a fever, please, stay at home!
Thank you for your understanding!

This is our fourth week of “Stay at home!”
Hang in there, hopefully we can get your root canals done in May!
Dr Fang is currently at home testing different levels of oral/nasal protections to achieve germ/virus free environment. We highly recommend you to wear either NK95 or N95 masks for the best protection. The cloth masks that are easily made from home are good options too. Please wear mask while you are outdoor or grocery shopping!

04/01/2020

Dear patients, we know you can hardly wait to come to our clinic for root canal treatments! Please be patient, as soon as our State’s “Stay at home” order gets lifted, we shall reopen our clinic and start scheduling. For you, us, our families, our community, and our country, the only way to stop this virus from spreading is doing our part, “Stay at home!” Currently, Dr Fang is being creative of modifying our PPE (Personal Protective Equipments) to prevent germs/virus from spreading. Unfortunately, the dental drill and spray will generate aerosol which may encourage the spread of the virus, therefore, seeing oral surgeon for simple extraction may be the best and safest resolution for tooth infections at this moment. May God bless us all!

03/23/2020

Dear Patients, according to the CDC and California dental society’s recommendations, our clinic is closed until further notice. If this is a life-threatening emergency, please go to your nearest hospital emergency room for immediate care. Otherwise, please first ask your primary dental providers to have you started with loading dose of antibiotics and then call us, my staff will assess your situation and schedule your emergency dental visit. May God bless you!

Choice is yours! It does get costly if delaying treatment. Please go see your general dentists every six months to save money!

Most of you already know that Dr. Fang’s passion is dental mission. This Summer 2018, Dr. Fang will be taking his family and his church friends to serve in the slums of Nairobi, Kenya for two weeks (7/8-7/21). Please excuse us for not being available to serve your root canal needs within these two weeks.

And yes, your hospital emergency room can also help you with the pain. Dr. Fang shall return Monday, 7/23 to take exceptional care of you!
