When it comes to taking care of your smile for the long term, nothing does it better than a complete check-up and cleaning.
With professional teeth cleaning and proper at-home care, a lifetime of healthy, beautiful teeth is very attainable. Our dental hygienist will use a gentle hand to clean your teeth and she’ll provide excellent advice on home care. By working together, we’ll have your smile healthy and happy for a lifetime.
Dr. Bolouri will look at your teeth and x-rays and try to spot the early signs of any dental problems. By coming to see us regularly, she’ll be able to quickly intervene on any issues you might have so they never have a chance to harm your smile. These appointments typically take an hour or less, but they are absolutely essential to keeping your beautiful smile healthy and whole.
Dr. Bolouri is an expert at diagnosing these kinds of conditions. He has a greater understanding of these issues and numerous conservative treatments to address your specific needs.
Fluoride is often found in toothpaste and public water sources because it provides a safe and natural way to strengthen the teeth against both tooth decay and cavities. To ensure that your smile stays extra-safe between appointments, we can also provide a topical fluoride treatment during your regular checkups. It only takes a few minutes to apply, is completely painless, and is one of the easiest ways to stay cavity-free year after year.
The back teeth (known as the premolars and molars) are particularly vulnerable to developing cavities because their rough and uneven chewing surfaces easily trap food and plaque that can lead to cavities. This is especially problematic for young children who are still learning to brush. To give the smile a little bit of extra protection right where it needs it, we can apply a clear, thin layer of protection to the teeth that’s called a dental sealant. This will create an invisible barrier that plaque and food particles cannot pass, effectively preventing tooth decay for years to come.
One of the most common kinds of sports injuries is actually dental injuries, so it is highly recommended to always wear a mouthguard when you exercise or compete. We can custom-make a mouthguard for you that will comfortably fit over your teeth while also protecting them from unexpected impacts. With our mouthguards, you’ll be able to speak and breathe normally so you can keep your mind on the game and stay safe at the same time. If it’s a custom fit, you’ll make certain to wear it!
As you can imagine, your home dental care routine is absolutely essential to maintaining your oral health – this means that the products you use every day are extremely important. We’re happy to recommend which products would be best for you so you and your family so that everyone can get the most out of their home routines. Plus, we can also provide many prescription strength products that you won’t find on store shelves. Be sure to ask your hygienist about them at your next appointment!
Electric toothbrushes are one of the most effective tools you can use to clean your teeth at home. They’re able to remove more plaque and break up more tartar than the most advanced manual brush, and even better, all of the hard work is done for you! We have a selection of electric toothbrushes at our dental office, and we can help you choose the one that would provide you the most benefits. If you’re ready to bring your brushing routine into the 21st century, be sure to ask us about them!
During your semi-annual appointment, Dr. Bolouri also performs an oral cancer screening for early detection of cancerous and precancerous cells. She embraces the latest advancements to enhance the diagnostic process. She uses OralID to perform the screening. The small handheld device illuminates abnormal cells. This method is more effective than a visual examination alone. The quick, painless scan will give you the power of early detection.
While dental accidents and emergencies can never be prevented completely, we offer mouthguards as a way to protect you and your little one’s teeth from harm and injury. We custom make our oral appliances to prevent your smile from being affected by a variety of issues. We even offer nightguards to treat nighttime teeth grinding and mouthguards to help with stress put on your dental structure. Read on to learn more about the ways that we use mouthguards to protect our patients’ teeth from harm and excess wear and tear.
