At Mayo Dental, Dr. Mark Taheri takes his patients’ comfort seriously, making them feel at ease with technology designed to prevent pain and increase convenience. He performs minimally invasive tooth restoration and calls upon tools such as intraoral cameras—which allow patients to see what’s going on in their mouth—and digital x-rays, which give comprehensive views of the mouth without the need for awkward bite trays. He also restores smiles with ceramic-zirconia crowns, which function like natural teeth, and straightens smiles with Invisalign’s nearly invisible plastic aligners. Whether executing a full-mouth restoration or a routine checkup, he makes patient comfort paramount and can soothe nervous patients with relaxing nitrous-oxide gas and bliss-inducing lullabies.
