Are you one of the fearful? Would you rather do anything than go to a dentist’s office? You’re not alone. Studies have shown between 10-20% of the population has a genuine phobia of dental care. Many would rather endure pain, disease and problematic teeth than be under the care of a dentist.
At Landmark Dental, Dr. Ilya Livshin and our team of caring and gentle professionals want you to know it doesn’t have to be this way. You do not need to live in pain, embarrassment or fear anymore. Our advanced restorative and cosmetic dentistry skills in combination with our knowledge of sedation dentistry ensures the comfortable and anxiety-free treatment you deserve.
Dr. Livshin’s extensive training and expertise in general dentistry, including implants and oral surgery gives him a unique opportunity to treat patients in his office without frequent referrals. This saves patients a significant amount of time and expense and becomes even more important when many procedures are performed at one time with the use of conscious sedation or intravenous general anesthesia. Dr. Livshin’s patients are happier and more comfortable seeing the same doctor take care of most of their dental needs and sedation options are a critical component in returning fearful patients to good oral health.
Replacing missing or damaged teeth with traditional dental treatments, such as crowns and bridges, only restores what is seen on the outside. Dental implants replace the entire tooth’s structure –including both the underlying roots and crowns on top. In comparison, results are incredibly more stable, dependable and longer-lasting. Best of all, with a success rate over 98%, implants are a great option for nearly all patients. Contact our Norwood dental office today to discuss if you are a candidate.
Compared to traditional orthodontic braces, Invisalign® utilizes a series of clear aligners instead of metal wires and brackets. Teens and adults appreciate its ability to straighten teeth discreetly – helping preserve self-confidence while smiles become perfected with each passing day. The trays are also completely removable… take them out when eating, during photos, or at special events! If your teeth are misaligned or crowded, contact Dr. Livshin at our Norwood dental office to discuss if Invisalign® is right for you.
Dr. Livshin’s primary goal is to preserve natural teeth. While an incredibly skilled restorative and cosmetic dentist, he does not want to resort to using these more advanced techniques and treatments on your smile. When teeth are compromised by harmful bacteria that spreads to the roots – often careful root canal therapy can save the tooth and prevent extraction and replacement. It is very important to contact us immediately if you are experiencing pain – timing is key in saving your smile.
Eat, speak and smile with complete confidence again! Traditional full and partial dentures help patients with compromised teeth that inhibit the ability to live a productive, full life. Partial dentures are used when one or more natural teeth are healthy, while full dentures are an option when all teeth are beyond repair. Dr. Livshin also offers implant-retained dentures that anchor dentures to your jaw using implant posts. This option requires no ongoing adjustments, results are more lifelike and treatment is longer-lasting.

As soon as we see signs of eruption, we can make recommendations on whether the wisdom teeth need to be removed. Whether it’s because of the amount of space in the mouth or the direction the wisdom teeth, extraction may be necessary. Dr. Livshin will work with you to determine the best course of action will make sure you are set up for a lifetime of oral health success.
