While we mostly focus on the optics of a great-looking smile, white and shining teeth are only a part of having a truly healthy smile. The key is maintaining consistent and effective oral hygiene habits. While many of these habits are formed at home, regular dental checkups and exams are vital to maintaining a vibrant smile.
And if you’re in the Encinitas, Del Mar, Carlsbad, San Marcos, or Cardiff area and looking for a fantastic preventive dentist “near me, here at All Smiles Dental Studio, Dr. Ali Shahrokh has the experience and expertise to help keep your smile healthy and shining for years to come!
For every exam, Dr. Shahrokh takes the time to conduct a deep dive into your health, which doesn’t just include what’s happening inside your mouth. He also looks at your overall health, focusing mainly on your neck and head to detect any issues or concerns that may exist. He would also conduct tactile and visual examinations.
High-tech tools such as digital x-rays are used to help identify the exact source of any symptoms or discomfort you’re experiencing. Using a mix of Dr. Shahrokh’s considerable knowledge and the latest diagnostic tools, we can often catch and address minor issues before they become major concerns. That’s what effective preventative dentistry is all about.
As part of our new patient exam and our amazing hygiene program at All Smiles Dental Studio, we access your gum health to figure out what level of cleaning should be performed. We try our best to perform your cleaning on the same day as your dental exam/checkup.
We have highly skilled hygienists who can gently perform light polishing and scaling above the gum line. This treatment will remove built-up plaque, bacteria, tartar, and stubborn surface stains. You’ll also receive fluoride varnish as a preventative treatment that will help keep your teeth nice and strong.
For patients with gingivitis which is the early stages of gum disease, Dr. Shahrokh may recommend gingivitis treatment. The condition is limited to your gums during the early stage and can be reversed. With this treatment, calculus (tartar), plaque, and stains are removed below and above the gum line.
For patients with more severe forms of gum disease, scaling and root planing treatment (SRP) is often needed. During the later stages of gum disease, the bones, teeth, and gums suffer varying degrees of attachment loss. The SRP process removes the harmful bacteria while helping your gum tissue recover to a healthy state.
It’s recommended that patients return every 3-4 months for periodontal maintenance after this procedure. During this maintenance, pockets of bacteria formed between the teeth and gums are flushed out using special antimicrobial agents.
