Our Granada Hills dentist is pleased to welcome new patients to our dental office. We offer comprehensive dental services to ensure you have access to the dental care you need when you need it. At your first visit, we will take the time to get to know you. That means we will need to learn more about your medical and dental history as well as talk to you about your smile goals so that we can better serve you.
Regular dental checkups are critical to helping you prevent serious dental health problems. Our dentist in Granada Hills will generally take dental X-rays, which can reveal signs of dental decay in places we may not be able to see with our eyes alone. These X-rays can also show us signs of problems below the gumlines or between the teeth. A comprehensive oral evaluation will give us a better picture of your overall oral health, which can allow us to create a treatment plan for you so that we can work with you as a team to keep your teeth and gums strong and healthy now and in the future.
A professional cleaning will usually be completed at the time of your dental exam. These cleanings are recommended to remove plaque and tartar buildup that tends to occur particularly in those hard-to-reach areas. Even if you brush and floss your teeth regularly, plaque and tartar can accumulate along the gumline, between your teeth and in fissures and pits along the chewing surfaces. We recommend a professional cleaning to remove this buildup and a polishing to help reduce the risk of buildup in the future.
