Dental Checkups & Cleanings
When it’s time for your routine checkup, you can expect care from Dr. Rouhani that is nothing less than thorough and detailed. During the exam, he’ll carefully evaluate your teeth, gums, oral tissues, and other essential oral structures to confirm that there are no dental issues. If any decay, plaque, or tartar is present, he’ll remove it and provide helpful tips to improve your oral care routine moving forward. If you have questions about care or potential treatments, don’t hesitate to ask!
Fluoride is one of the most important minerals for maintaining long-term health for a number of reasons. For one, it works to keep tooth enamel strong, even when exposed to harmful bacteria daily. It also plays a role in fighting bacteria as saliva uses it to fight against the development of plaque in between your oral care habits. At Dental Attraction, our fluoride treatments are quick, effective and designed to keep your smile strong for many years.
For some, cavities and tooth decay are more common and therefore more difficult to defend against. This is especially true in children, who are still honing their brushing and flossing technique. With dental sealants, Dr. Rouhani can offer additional protection for teeth with very deep pits and grooves. These teeth, including molars, are vulnerable to cavity production, and sealants provide them with an additional 10 years of protection. While sealants are mainly used for younger patients, anyone can benefit from their use.
Managing dental care is important at every age, not just when permanent teeth erupt. In fact, the way in which baby teeth develop can have a major impact on how a child’s future smile will look and function. That’s why Dr. Rouhani recommends patients come for their initial visit at either one year of age or when their first baby tooth erupts. Our team always makes sure to be patient and inform you of the best habits to maintain at home.
Do you have active family members? If so, do they play contact sports like football, basketball, hockey, or wrestling? Patients who are active are significantly higher risk of experiencing a dental injury. This could range from a chipped or cracked tooth to a completely knocked-out tooth, which can have major implications for your oral health. With custom-made athletic mouthguards, Dr. Rouhani makes sure that your next essential piece of sporting equipment feels comfortable and lasts as long as possible.
At-Home Dental Healthcare
There are several steps you can take to help prevent cavities. First, be certain to practice good oral hygiene by brushing your teeth at least twice a day and flossing at least once daily. Maintaining a balanced diet without too much sugary snacking can also help to prevent tooth decay. Second, visit our dental office every six months for a dental cleaning and exam, or more frequently if you notice dental pain or damage of any kind. Dental sealants and fluoride treatments are also good tools for preventing cavities. To learn more about these and other types of preventive dental treatment, we welcome you to contact our friendly dental team today.
