First Visit

During your first visit, you can expect either Dr. Sara or Dr. Arin to perform a thorough examination. This exam will include necessary radiographs (x-rays) allowing us to diagnose the condition of the mouth, teeth and gums. Both doctors take a minimalistic and preventative approach when it comes to treatment. They will discuss all treatment options with pros and cons to allow the patient choose what best fits them. The office proudly provide only the highest quality, low radiation digital radiographs. Digital x-rays use an estimated 40-90% less radiation than conventional film x-rays. Digital x-rays use a digital image capture device in place of traditional film, sending an image immediately to a computer. The result is a highly-detailed image of the mouth, and its contrast and resolution can be enhanced to more easily diagnose dental problems and determine the very best treatment for each case. This means more safety and better accuracy for you. We also offer state of the art CT machine for cases where more detailed diagnostic imaging is needed. Sometimes, patients overlook the importance of good oral health, but it can affect almost every aspect of our physical health and wellbeing. Oral diseases can impact your everyday life and affect how you eat, sleep, work, and socialize. The state of your mouth can indicate problems in other areas of your body, so visiting your dentist every six months can help you maintain your overall well-being. A cavity, for instance, can advance to the center of the tooth and cause a localized infection. If not treated with root canal therapy, the bacteria can enter the bloodstream and cause a serious systemic infection. Likewise, studies have proven a link between gum disease and health conditions such as diabetes, dementia and cardiovascular disease, so it pays to undergo routine checkups to spot gum disease in the early stages when it is reversible so that you can reduce your risk of other health problems.

Preventive Care:

Preventive dental care is key to keeping your teeth healthy throughout the course of your life. But it goes beyond that. Good oral health can impact your general health, as well. 'Prevention is the best Treatment'
