Dorius Dental Design

Designing Smiles and Enhancing Lives

Welcome!

When you visit Dorius Dental Design, your comfort is our top priority.  It’s all about you!  Our entire team is committed to creating an experience different from any other you have had in a dental office.  We understand that the thought of going to the dentist prompts a lot of negative emotions for a lot of people.  We are here to change that!

Part of our commitment to serving our patients involves providing information that helps you make more informed decisions about your health and wellness.  This website is a resource we hope you’ll find both useful and interesting.

Smile and Self Confidence

Your smile! It’s the first thing people notice when they meet us. Having a great smile is either a confidence booster or a confidence breaker. So much seems to rely on our sense of self worth-our confidence. It affects the way we act, the jobs we have, the jobs you seek out and just overall the way we carry ourselves. As a result, it affects not only the way we view ourselves, but the way we view others.

The Story of Jeff Dorius

Dentist

Jeff was born in a small town in Idaho called Soda Springs. His dad was the local dentist in Soda Springs which is where Jeff got his introduction to dentistry. Jeff saw the way his dad was able to interact with the people from his hometown and create meaningful relationships with them through his work. He saw the way his dad loved his job, and that made him want to go into dentistry as a career.

After high school, Jeff attended Snow College where he played 1 year of basketball. After his first year of college at Snow, Jeff served a full-time LDS mission in the state of Georgia. Upon returning, he attended BYU and earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology.

Jeff then attended Marquette University School of Dentistry in Milwaukee, Wisconsin where he graduated in 2000. In dental school, he was awarded an International Congress of Implantology award for his interest and work in dental implants. Jeff has also been recognized as one of America’s Top Dentists for the past five years.

In addition, Jeff is an active member of the American Dental Association (ADA), Utah Dental Association, and the Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. He is licensed to practice general dentistry and is also certified in soft tissue laser dentistry.

Dr. Dorius and his staff are awesome! Dr. Dorius did an excellent job taking out a couple of old amalgam fillings. He gave me many options and let me choose the best ones for me. He has a great touch and is such a great guy. His team did a fantastic job of helping me to understand my portion of the payment after insurance did its part. I highly recommend Dr. Dorius and Dorius Dental Design to anyone, near or far. Thanks again!

Dental Bridges

Brooklyn, Sydney Harbor, Rialto, and Golden Gate. More appropriate for spanning a river than replacing a tooth. An implant is almost always a better treatment option but sometimes a dental bridge is necessary and certainly better than a partial denture.

Fillings

We are way past the days of drilling half of your tooth away and packing a bunch of silver metal in the hole. Modern materials allow us to be very conservative, preserve healthy tooth structure, and restore it to a natural appearance.

Gum Disease

Understanding & Conquering Gum Disease

If you like bleeding gums, bad breath, bacteria accumulation in your mouth, and the thoughts of gum grafting then go ahead and ignore your red gums. Our goal is to help you maintain health and wellness. Through the use of ultrasonic cleaning, laser therapy, and improved cleaning aids for home, we get great results. Gum disease left untreated can lead to periodontal disease which has been associated with other inflammatory diseases like heart disease, diabetes, respiratory disease, and low pre-term birth weight.

Sedation

Conscious Sedation Dentistry

Thank goodness for modern dentistry! New technology now allows even the most fearful dental patients get the dentistry work they need accomplished–without feeling any pain! Comfortable dental visits are available at Dorius Dental, where we can relieve your anxiety and provide you the care you need.

Unlike general anesthesia which puts the patient to sleep, our practice uses conscious sedation, where the patient is awake and comfortable, yet sedated.

When our professional Dorius dentists use conscious sedation, you won’t fall asleep. These modern, safe, and comfortable oral sedation options can provide you with great benefits. We offer two types of minimal sedation dentistry at our office: Nitrous Oxide (also known as Laughing Gas) and Oral Sedation. Read on to learn more!

The perfect option for people who:

NITROUS OXIDE / LAUGHING GAS

Nitrous Oxide is the most commonly used technique among conscious sedation dentists. The goal is to eliminate any dental anxiety you may face, allowing you to feel comfortable while your dental care is being worked on. Your dentist may even be able to complete work that would normally take more than one visit!

The N20-02 (Nitrous Oxide/Laughing Gas) inhalation option is very positively effective for patients with mild to moderate levels of anxiety about dental work. As N20-02 typically minimizes gagging, it is also a great technique for those prone to gagging.

IV SEDATION – ON REQUEST

IV sedation is an alternate option for those highly fearful patients who need more than nitrous oxide. IV sedation allows patients to be comfortably sedated during their entire dental visit! If you choose IV sedation, it is mandatory to have another person drive you to and from your appointment. You may not operate a motor vehicle for a few hours after receiving IV sedation.)

All sedation options are very safe and effective. At Dorius Dental, we use safe and widely prescribed medications. In addition, we bring in qualified medical staff to perform the IV Sedation. From the moment you arrive in our office, we monitor your vital signs, and won’t let you leave until we are certain you are ready. Our whole dental team is trained and certified in emergency procedures, and we assure you that Dorius Dental is one of the safest places you can get your dental work accomplished.

As an added bonus, the medications used with IV sedation have an amnesiac side effect, which leaves you, a previously fearful dental patient, with little or no memory of your dental appointment–even without anesthesia!

Call us now for more information about sedation dentistry or to schedule an appointment–with no fear!

Root Canals

Heber Root Canal Dentist

WHAT IS A ROOT CANAL?

A root canal is a small passageway that branches from beneath the top of the tooth, extends downward vertically, and reaches the tip of the root. Every one of your teeth has between one and four root canals.

WHAT CAUSES THE PAIN?

Most problems leading to tooth pain are caused by infections that have spread to the pulp (the inner chamber of the tooth–think blood vessels, tissues, and nerves). As the infection worsens, it often begins to affect the roots. Injuries to a tooth can also negatively affect the pulp, causing similar problems.

When your inner tooth becomes diseased, an array of problems can arise. You can experience pain, increased sensitivity, and spreading infections that cause pockets of pus and potential abscesss. If you feel that you have any of these problems now, call Dorius Dental to schedule a free consultation.

ROOT CANAL THERAPY – WHAT IS IT?

Root canal therapy is a specialized treatment with high success rates. It involves a careful removal of the diseased tissue, which stops the infection from spreading, and restores the health back to the tooth. Root canal therapy is specifically designed to save your tooth, instead of having to consider the alternative option: extraction.

WHAT DOES A ROOT CANAL CONSIST OF?

A typical root canal can take up to three visits. On your first visit, a tiny hole will be drilled through the top of the tooth and down into the inner chamber. The doctor will then remove the diseased tissue, clean and disinfect the inner chamber, and reshape the tiny canals. An elastic material and medication (designed to prevent infection) fills up the chamber after it has been cleaned, and may be only temporarily filled until a permanent seal is created (learn more about crowns here).

IS ROOT CANAL THERAPY VERY SUCCESSFUL?

Most patients who have root canal experience little or no discomfort or pain, and enjoy a restored tooth that can last almost as long as its healthy original.

Veneers

VENEERS

Veneers

Veneers are designed to help your smile look its best. They are thin, custom-made shells that are customized to fit your teeth perfectly. When bonded to your teeth, they can make your smile beautiful and flawless. They can enhance your smile by:

Receiving your porcelain veneers will take two appointments at our office. In the first visit, your teeth will be prepared to receive the veneers. They will be lightly buffed and the surface of your teeth will be shaped to prepare for bonding and the added thickness of the veneers. Molds (impressions) of your teeth will also be taken to ensure that the veneers will fit your teeth perfectly. The shade closest to your surrounding teeth will then be chosen by the dentist.
At the second dental visit, the veneers will be bonded to your teeth. It is important, after the procedure, to follow the recommended care instructions given by Dr. Dorius. Consistently maintaining proper dental hygiene (brushing, flossing, etc.) will support the life and function of your veneers. For more information about how veneers can improve your smile, please give Dorius Dental Design a call.
