Cleanings, Exams, and X-rays
Professional cleanings performed by a hygienist are as important to your dental health as daily brushing and flossing. Regular dental check-ups and cleanings help catch problems when they are small and easier to treat. Left unattended, small treatable problems become worse and may require more extensive, expensive procedures to repair. Read More About Dental Checkups
Oral Cancer Screening
During your dental visit, Dr. Bijan Modjtahedi can talk to you about your health history and examine you for signs of mouth and/or throat cancer. Regular visits to Bijan Family Dental Practice can improve the chances that any suspicious changes in your oral health will be caught early, at a time when cancer can be treated more easily.

Prevention is the key to maintaining pristine oral health. While checkups and professional cleaning are still a necessity, good home care can help you avoid unnecessary restorative treatments and longer appointments. The steps you take at home are a crucial part of minimizing tooth decay and gum disease. Read More About Home Care
Dental sealants are plastic layers that are typically placed onto the occlusal (chewing) surfaces of the permanent posterior (back) teeth. These teeth, the molars primarily, and premolars tend to be more vulnerable to decay. The chewing surfaces of these teeth have grooves, or fissures, that can be deep and difficult to clean. In some cases, they can even be more narrow than the bristle of a toothbrush. The fissures can collect plaque, food debris, and harmful bacteria that eats away at the tooth enamel.
