What is Preventative Dentistry?

Preventative dentistry is a term that incorporates several services, all of which help improve the lifelong health and cleanliness of your teeth and gums. At our clinics, we aim to catch dental issues early on, which can help reduce your risk of developing tooth decay and gum disease and prevent the need for costly treatments down the line. Plus, ongoing care for your teeth can keep your smile healthy for years to come!

Proper oral health care also starts with your at-home practices. By maintaining good oral hygiene habits, like brushing twice daily and flossing once daily, you can continue showing off your beautiful smile while avoiding severe dental problems in the future.

Dental Cleanings

Regular professional dental cleanings are essential for maintaining healthy teeth and gums. Even with your daily at-home brushing and flossing routine, tarter, plaque, and stains can accumulate over time, leading to cavities, gum disease, tooth decay, or bacteria growth. That’s where we come in.

We use thorough methods to clean your teeth, including root planing and deep scaling to get beneath the gum line. We also perform visual examinations to screen for potential issues like infections or cancer and can take X-rays to investigate areas further. Our dental cleanings finish with flossing and polishing so you can walk away with a sparkling smile.

Children's Dentistry

Establishing good oral hygiene habits in childhood is crucial for maintaining your smile. As your child’s teeth grow and develop, it’s essential to implement proper practices like daily brushing and flossing and regular check-ups.

At our clinic, we prioritize the dental needs of your little ones with our children’s dentistry services. Dentist visits can be scary — we get it! That’s why our team ensures your child feels comfortable during their appointment. We’ll engage with them using fun and empathetic conversations, learning what makes them the incredible human beings they are. We also offer a play area and devices with Netflix and paired Bluetooth headsets to help them feel more relaxed.

Our children’s dentistry services include cavity fillings, teeth cleaning and exams, space maintainers, wisdom tooth assessments, and more. We also emphasize educating you and your child on good brushing and flossing practices so they can feel empowered to take control of their oral health.

Tooth Extractions

There may come a time when removing a tooth is the only solution. You may encounter this situation with wisdom teeth or if you have molars that are too decayed for repair. Tooth extractions have many benefits, like relieving pain and preventing further damage, infection, or overcrowding.

At Yazdani Family Dentistry, we have the tools and expertise to perform quick and pain-free extractions. We follow a process that begins with inspecting your teeth and gums and conducting X-rays. After applying a local anesthetic, we’ll use simple tools like elevators and forceps to loosen and remove the tooth.
