NOW, WE KNOW THAT we’re your orthodontic team, not your dentist. However, we want to help you have healthy teeth for life. And that job goes beyond orthodontics and into a lifetime of good dental care.
That’s why we’re joining with our fellow oral health professionals to dispel the myths about one major dental procedure: root canals. We know that it’s a topic people don’t typically visit about in a favorable light. Root canal therapy has always been a bit of a “whipping boy” in dentistry—and, its reputation is probably undeserved. This is especially true given today’s awesome treatment advancements.
The Most Common Misconception
The problems that lead up to needing a root canal can be painful because they affect your tooth’s pulp and nerves. Oftentimes people associate root canal treatment with the discomfort that made the treatment necessary in the first place. Don’t forget that root canal therapy is the solution, not the problem! And, root canals don’t need to be painful.
Today’s Ingredients For Comfortable Root Canal Treatments:
- safe, effective anesthesia
- extremely precise tools
- incredible imaging technology that enhances how and what we see
- shorter treatment times
Hopefully, with great home care habits and regular visits to your dentist, you won’t need root canal therapy at any point in the future. However, just in case it comes up, remember that there’s nothing to be worried about! Root canal treatment helps you keep your own teeth, and keep that beautiful, healthy, straight smile.
If you have a toothache or are in need of a dentist or an endodontist root canal specialist, call us Gorczyca Orthodontics at (925) 757-9000 and we will refer you to the nearest dental professional to find a solution for your dental needs. We are located in the Deer Valley Professional Building at 5201 Deer Valley Road in Antioch, California right behind Deer Valley High School. We work closely with over 100 dentists and dental specialists in the greater East Contra Costa County area.
Here's to your healthy and beautiful smile.

THE CDC REPORTS THAT 1 in 5 children (between ages 5 and 11) in the US have untreated tooth decay. Not only should tooth decay be treated in regular dental appointments, it should be prevented! Tooth decay is 100 percent preventable with effective personal care and regular dental cleanings.
YOU Can Help Little Ones Have Healthier Smiles!
- Encourage them to brush for two full minutes: Pick a song about two minutes long and sing it to them during brushing time.
- Set reminders to brush twice a day: Brushing after breakfast and just before bed are the best times for preventing bacteria growth from food.
- Show them flossing is fun, not harmful: Be gentle at first when doing it for them. A bad experience can stop them from flossing on their own.
- Be persistent: Don’t let fussy children off the hook. Be motivating! Kids may gladly brush for a sticker or star if you make it an activity.
- Set their first dental appointment before age 1: Having positive dental experiences early will make dental visits easier and less frightening when older.
We Love Helping Young Smiles
At Gorczyca Orthodontics, we see young patients as early as age 4. Functional shifts in bites may cause asymmetric growth patterns and need to be treated early.
Our initial orthodontic exams are complimentary at no charge. If parents are in need of a pediatric dentist for their child or a family dentist for the whole family, we are happy to refer you to an excellent dentist in our East County dental community.
The American Association of Orthodontists and all orthodontists recommend that every child have an orthodontic examination with an orthodontist by age 7. To find an orthodontist near you, visit www.mylifemysmile.org.
Find us Gorczyca Orthodontics, 5201 Deer Valley Road, Suite 1A, Antioch, California (925) 757-9000. www.clubbraces.com
Here's to your child's happy life and health smile.

THE DEER VALLEY PROFESSIONAL BUILDING has a new dentist in town. Dr. Nathan Simarro has joined his twin brother Ryan in the practice of Miller and Simarro. Ryan is older than Nathan by a mere six minutes. Nonetheless, he is the oldest of the Dr. Simarro twins. I guess their practice will now be called Miller and the Simarro Brothers!
A Brief History Of The Simarro Brothers
Dr. Miller was originally an associate of Dr. Jim Green who built the Deer Valley Dental Professional Building at 5201 Deer Valley Road, in Antioch. Dr. Ryan Simarro joined the practice of Dr. Mark Miller in 2013. Dr. Nathan Simarro took one year off before dental school to study Spanish language and culture at Alcala de Heneares in Madrid, Spain. After dental school, he practiced at a nonprofit, Las Clinicas del Camino Real in Ventura, California. This week he was reunited with his twin in their practice in Antioch, California.
The Simarro dental twins are graduates of Deer Valley High School located right next door to their dental practice. Now, many of their high school teachers are their patients!
The Simarro Brothers Love To Give Back
Giving back to the community which they came from is very important to Drs. Ryan and Nathan Simarro. Their family has been rooted in Antioch and Brentwood for over 60 years. They are happy to see new patients many of whom are neighbors, classmates, family, and friends.
Drs. Ryan and Nathan bring difference strengths to their joint practice based on their varied experiences and educational background. Ryan is very cosmetically focused and one of the only providers of Lumineers; and in 2016 was the #1 Lumineer provider in the the San Francisco Bay Area. Nathan enjoys working with children and has seen young patients as early as one month old.
Together, Drs. Simarro are also providing All on Four dentistry offering dental implants and full mouth reconstruction to dental patients with extensive dental needs.
