Regular dental cleanings are usually recommended two times per year, although it does vary by patient. Even if you have the most by-the-book perfect teeth cleaning regimen at home, you still need to be seen by a dentist regularly. Routine exams and cleanings allow Dr. Nosratabadi to keep tabs on your oral health and see if anything abnormal is lingering below your gum line. She can remove stuck-on plaque and correct early decay before a deep cavity forms.
General dentistry, as the name implies, involves all areas of oral care. Dr. Nosratabadi can provide restorative services, such as fillings, crowns, and bridges. She even can correct problems from trauma, such as a broken or dislodged tooth. One of the most important jobs in general dentistry is prevention. Dr. Nosratabadi can teach you how to properly care for your teeth and gums at home, or provide dental sealants to further protect your teeth.
Dr. Nosratabadi also specializes in cosmetic treatments, including teeth whitening and straightening with removable braces. As a general dentist and a dental surgeon, she can help with tooth pain, jaw joint pain (TMJ), and root canals. No matter what type of tooth concern you have, the specialized team at RNA Dentistry can help.
Part of dentistry includes gathering your entire medical history. Dr. Nosratabadi needs to know if you have chronic medical conditions or take prescription medications, since those might impact your oral health. She’ll often use imaging, like x-rays, to check for decay or abnormalities below your gum line. Also, you’ll likely have to bite down a few times while she looks into your mouth, so she can see if you have any issues with biting, chewing, or swallowing.
If you’re at risk for developing oral cancer — if it runs in your family — she can screen you during an exam to check for warning signs of development. All of these diagnostic tools and screenings can help keep your teeth healthy for the rest of your life.
