Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings

Six-month dental exams and cleanings are necessary if you want to avoid more invasive, restorative dental care in the future. When visiting our dental office for your appointment, you can expect us to go over your dental concerns as well as discuss your smile goals. After taking digital images of your smile, we’ll visually examine your oral anatomy, checking for signs of decay, infection, disease, or damage. We’ll also remove any accumulated plaque and tartar from your teeth during a routine cleaning. Should we discover anything of concern, we will formulate a treatment plan that works for you.

Nightguards for Bruxism

If you wake with regular headaches or experience soreness throughout your teeth and jaw, you may be suffering from bruxism. Teeth grinding is an unhealthy habit many patients develop unknowingly. If your tooth enamel appears worn down, or you complain of serious jaw pain, we can have a customized nightguard created to help alleviate symptoms. Worn at night while you sleep, this oral device prevents upper and lower teeth from touching and grinding against each other. This will ensure a better night’s sleep as well as relief from the pain.

Oral Cancer Screenings

Oral cancer takes the life of one person every hour in the United States. Because early detection is key to increasing a person’s survival rate, Dr. Khorasani performs an oral cancer screening during regular dental checkups. These painless exams allow us to check for abnormalities and lesions throughout the mouth, soft oral tissues, throat, and overall facial structure. If we find any possible areas of concern, we will refer you to an outside specialist for further testing. Finding these issues early on is more likely to improve your rate of recovery.
