What is Conservative Dentistry?
Conservative dentistry preserves the teeth in the mouth as much as possible. Conservative dentists perform procedures to remove damaged or diseased tissue in order to attempt to limit the amount of healthy tooth removed, and focus on procedures that will conserve the teeth when it is a viable option. Extractions may still be considered if a patient’s tooth is too badly damaged to save. Services like braces, teeth whitening, and regular cleanings are important to helping conserve your smile and part of our approach.
In this approach to dental health, practitioners like Dr Kerikorian carefully evaluate dental problems to determine the extent of any issues and develop a plan to treat them. His goal is to maintain the integrity of the tooth while successfully treating the problem and preventing any recurrences. During a procedure like a filling or a more invasive root canal, Dr. Kerikorian carefully removes any infected, dead, and damaged material while leaving healthy material behind. A variety of approaches are used in conservative dentistry to control the operating field and treat the tooth.
Once the dentist has cleaned the tooth thoroughly, a filling can be added to preserve the integrity of the tooth and prevent a recurrence by sealing the opening. This tooth restoration process can take varying lengths of time, depending on the extent of the damage and the number of teeth involved. At the end, the patient retains the majority of the intact tooth. Followups can confirm that the tooth remains healthy and does not have any additional problems, to make sure the procedure was successful.
Part of conservative dentistry, as in other fields of the health care profession, is preventative care. Dr. Kerikorian regularly inspects his patients for signs of dental disease, recommends cleanings to keep the surface of the teeth clean, and will provide advice on reducing the risk of gum disease. Make an appointment today at Green California Dental Group’s Burbank office and experience the benefits of this conservative approach first hand!

“I live an hour away and gladly make the drive for my dentist. Dr. K is exceptional, office staff is efficient and friendly, atmosphere is very pleasant, office is clean, wait time is minimal, appointment is thorough, and oddly enough- I do a lot of laughing. Dr. K and his assistants have great working relationships which also puts me at ease. I fully trust him, his work, his suggestions, and his expertise. I haven’t been let down yet. That’s a lot to say about a dentist!”

"Very friendly, great office that is super clean. Small tvs on a swivel arm on each station (so you don’t have to crane you neck to have something to take your mind off of the dentist). They wanted to do a special rinse after my check up and cleaning. This was the only thing that could be considered a possible up-sell but they were totally polite and not pressuring. I declined and they were nice. Totally keeping this dentist."
"Came on a Saturday morning. -Clean, well decorated, relaxing facility -Polite staff -Relaxing music constantly playing -TVs at each chair so you can watch while you wait and while they work on you -Assistant was careful and knew what she was doing -Dr. Kerikorian was honest, quick, friendly Definitely coming back."
"I can’t say enough great things about Dr. Kerikorian and his staff. Proof: I cried at least 78% less than I normally do at dentists. Amazing! Now, I am not an easy patient. I’m not flipping tables or needing to be sedated, but like most I have a fear of dentists. I’ve known that I’ve needed to get work done for a while, but I’ve been too terrified to do it. However, you just can’t help but trust this doctor– he actually takes the time to fully explain what you need, what he wants to do, AND what will happen afterwards. He takes his full time with you, and never once gave me the impression that he was in a rush. That, and he is constantly reassuring about the discomfort/pain of the procedures. I finally got the fillings I desperately needed, and it was exactly as he said it would be. My first fillings ever in my life. Piece o’ cake. For the first time in my life, I’m not scared of dentists. (This one, anyway. As far as I know, the rest are probably still bloodthirsty monsters.) I have a terrible time taking X-Rays– those thingies just never fit in my mouth right, and my bite is odd so it’s a battle to bite down on them. The doc and his staff were incredibly kind and patient with me in making this work, even though it took at least 5x the normal amount of time. Never once did they make me feel like I was an inconvenience (despite the fact it obviously was), so I knew then these were great, supportive people. The office itself is modern & clean and the staff (from the kind front desk lady to all the great dental assistants) is all super sweet and ready to help. If you’ve been hesitating on seeing a dentist, don’t. This is where you need to be."
“I will keep this short (compared to most of my writing) and try to stick to the point. When you have walked this planet for the better part of a century you will have met a lot of dentists. Dr. Kerikorian is one of the two best which I have been to in my entire life. The other was a Dr. May who was my dentist when I was about eight years old. Bottom line here …. The staff is great. From the front office to the dental technicians, they are all great. The staff in the front office worked with my insurance company and made the calls to other service providers such as an oral surgeon. Not their responsibility but an indication of how helpful these folks are, more than full service to say the least. The equipment is the latest state of the art equipment yet their rates are very competitive in spite of the pricey equipment. Now … to Dr. Kerikorian…. He takes time to answer all your questions which might seem as something to expect BUT …. I am one of those people who would rather remove my own appendix than go to a dentist. To label me as a “baby” or “wimp” would be something of an accurate statement … an understatement. Dr. Kerikorian lets me ask questions, alters his busy schedule to work around my questions when I am in the chair (he will give me time to ponder my options rather than just rush things). The entire office is this way, they never make you feel rushed and take time to answer all questions. A great organization. Great prices, great staff. Side note… Dr. Kerikorian went to what some consider one of the best Dental Schools in the country, USC. Hats off to these folks.”
