One of the most important things you can do to ensure your continued good dental health is to have comprehensive dental exams on a regular basis. And if you are concerned that you may have developing dental problems you will do well to still have an exam, and find out what needs to be done to keep your oral health situation from becoming worse. In any event, our Tarzana general dentist will be able to restore your teeth and gums to good health.
Our dentist, Dr. Robert Khanian has been providing exceptional dental care to our patients for just about 20 years. Our office is state of the art in terms of technology and procedures performed. Our patients’ visits are comfortable and pain free. And our friendly and welcoming staff will make you feel right at home. Our Tarzana general dentist treats each patient on an individualized basis, and tailors treatment options accordingly. Our dentist knows that comprehensive dental exams are a must as they will discover any teeth or gum problems that may be developing. As part of a comprehensive dental exam, x-rays will be taken, teeth will be examined for signs of decay, gums will be evaluated for gum disease, an oral cancer screening will be performed, and your bite and jaws will be reviewed for proper alignment. It will also be important to have a professional teeth cleaning to remove any tartar that can cause gum disease.
If gum disease is discovered by our Tarzana general dentist during the dental exam, he will be able to explain the situation to you, and let you know what gum treatments can be done to turn back the course of the disease. If gingivitis is found, which actually is a precursor to gum disease, it can probably be treated with a short series of dental cleanings over the course of several months. If you need more advanced gum treatment, Dr. Khanian will possibly recommend that you have a root scaling and planing procedure. This procedure will actually deep clean the gums and hopefully work to help reduce the size of deep pockets that are filled with tartar and bacteria. You will be able to receive treatment for just about all of your dental needs at All Smiles Family Dentistry.
