Going to the dentist used to be one of the most dreaded experiences for me. Every time I would go it felt like I was having my gums prodded or a cavity discovered. So when I began to have a little bit of tooth pain while on vacation, I almost made the mistake of putting it off. As it turns out I had a chipped tooth and I needed to have some work done immediately. I went to Dr, Tiu because he was highly recommended by my relatives in the area. The staff was very courteous and there was next to no waiting time for me which I appreciated. They had the rough spot around the chip prepped for Dr. Tiu's expert work and he was in to see me very quickly. He had me all set and ready to go within twenty minutes and I was out the door again with no tooth pain at all. Thanks Dr. Tiu, you saved me from a vacation spent having nothing but soup!

Dr. Tiu is a marvelous doctor. He comes across as very caring, passionate about his job and very thoughtful. Normally at other dental offices I feel rushed and just like a number, but he was able to focus on me and the problem at hand. I am writing this review because of the overall experience I had at this place. The environment is very clean and modern. The staff is upbeat and helpful. If you are in the area I would highly recommend Dr. Tiu.

I have had a very good experience here at Sawtooth Dental. The staff is wonderful, the office is warm and inviting and the dental work that Dr. Dixon does is pain free. He makes the procedures bearable and I don't mind going to the dentist. He and his staff do a great job and run a great practice.

Dr. Tiu is the most gentle dentist I have ever used. I'm new in town, got referred by a good local friend of mine, and twice now I have needed his services and he has been able to accommodate my busy schedule, and has been so easy to talk to and explains everything. I recommend him too.

I highly recommend Dr Tiu. It's been hard to finda good dentist lately. I knew I needed to go to the dentist for quite a while.I just needed a couple fillings, so I kept putting it off. But he made the process easy and painless. Everyone was very friendly and put you at ease.Thanks.

Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
