Having a dental checkup performed at Dr. Milad Nourahmadi’s dental office every six months is essential for maintaining strong teeth and a healthy mouth. This simple outpatient appointment is designed to clean away any tartar and bacterial deposits from your teeth while monitoring your mouth for any early signs of an oral health condition.

If your dental exam reveals an area of concern Dr. Milad will help you understand your treatment options. If a problem is caught early he might recommend administering a preventative treatment such as applying dental sealants or performing a fluoride treatment to preserve the health of your teeth

Exposing your teeth to concentrated fluoride is designed to bolster the mineral density of your tooth enamel. This will help prevent bacteria and plaque acids from promoting cavities.

If your dental exam reveals traces of bacterial deposits stuck on the biting surfaces of your molars and premolars Dr. Milad might recommend protecting the teeth with dental sealants. This is a clear dental resin simple painted over the occlusal surfaces of your back teeth to create a protective barrier that prevents bacteria from direct access to the underlying tooth enamel. It’s best to apply the dental sealants immediately after your dental cleaning to ensure that your teeth are completely free from bacterial deposits.
