Dental Specialties

Dr. Afsharzand is one of the premier dental doctors in the area in the treatment of TMJ, sleep apnea, implant dentistry and ClearCorrect™ clear align braces. She is highly recommended not only by her patients, but by other medical professionals. Her exceptional skill and knowledge in these areas of expertise make her the perfect person to help you manage these particularly troubling conditions.

TMJ Therapy

Tempro-Mandibular Joint Dysfunction Syndrome (TMJ) is a common condition affecting a wide variety of people. TMJ is characterized by severe headaches, jaw pain of varying degrees, grinding teeth, and an intermittent ringing in the ears. The vast majority of TMJ sufferers are unaware that the root cause of these problems is something that a dentist can effectively treat.

The symptoms of TMJ are debilitating and can greatly interfere with every day life. The comfort and general well being of the patient is at the heart of the dental practice, so pain relief is the first consideration of the dentist. The dentist is able to test, diagnose, and devise an immediate plan to treat the underlying causes of the TMJ disorder.


Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is a potentially life-threatening sleep disorder characterized by repeated pauses in breathing during sleep. The term sleep apnea is derived from the Greek etymology meaning “without breath”. Breathing pauses can last anywhere from several seconds to minutes, and happen as often as 30 times or more per hour. Ongoing disrupted breathing causes an imbalance between the carbon dioxide and oxygen levels in the bloodstream, as not enough carbon dioxide is exiting and not enough oxygen is entering the body.

Sensing this imbalance, the brain sends a message to the body, telling it to wake up to restart breathing the process. People with sleep apnea will partially awake as they struggle to breathe, and this is often accompanied by loud snoring or choking sensations. Because people with sleep apnea don’t always completely awake during the episodes, they are often unaware they have a sleeping disorder and it can remain undiagnosed.


Implant Dentistry

West Deptford Dental Excellence offers Implant Dentistry as a great way to replace missing teeth and also provide a fixed solution to having removable partial or complete dentures. Dental Implants provide excellent support and stability for these dental appliances.

Dental implants are artificial roots and teeth (usually titanium) that are surgically placed into the upper or lower jaw bone by a dentist or Periodontist – a specialist of the gums and supporting bone. The teeth attached to implants are very natural looking and often enhance or restore a patient’s smile!

Dental implants are very strong, stable, and durable and will last many years, but on occasion, they will have to be re-tightened or replaced due to normal wear.


ClearCorrect™ Clear Braces

ClearCorrect™ is the clear and simple alternative to braces.

With ClearCorrect, your dentist or orthodontist can straighten your teeth using a series of clear, custom, removable aligners. Each aligner moves your teeth just a little bit at a time until you eventually get straight teeth.

How does it work?
You and your doctor will evaluate your teeth and talk about any problems or goals you have for your smile. Once you and your doctor establish ClearCorrect is the right treatment option for you, your doctor will take impressions, photos, and x-rays of your teeth that ClearCorrect uses in manufacturing your custom aligners. Then your doctor writes a prescription for your custom aligners and sends it to ClearCorrect.

I actually enjoy visiting my dentist 3 times a year. Dr. Afsharzand has the latest equipment and procedures to make dental work nearly painless, and her skills give me confidence so I don’t tense up with fear. The staff is also well trained and sympathetic, and the atmosphere in the office is cordial. Especially my regular hygienist, Peggy, is meticulous. Her advice on dental hygiene is very helpful, but she doesn’t lecture! With her emphasis on prevention, Dr. A has kept my smile, which was not in the best shape when I first visited her about 10 years ago, in good condition. I also appreciate that the staff takes a quick look and asks some general health questions that could affect your dental condition as well. An all-around great dental office. – Linda H.

Dr A is the best. I had a lot of poor dentistry that did not stay and a history of old fillings. I was very unhappy with my appearance and food getting stuck. I went to Dr. A to get dentures. She did not agree with my choice because she said the roots were strong. I went home disappointed. We talked again and Dr. A suggested a plan to save them all, look good, and eat well. I agreed. Dr. A did a marvelous job and gave me back my smile. She is efficient with her time and did a lot of work each visit. She is artfully skilled, professional and personable. Highly recommend. – Leslie M.
