After diagnostics are completed, Dr. Alidadi will recommend a customized treatment plan to improve your oral health and the aesthetics of your smile.

Regularly Scheduled Checkups

We will educate you on proper dental health.

Maintaining a regular dental check up schedule will ensure that any small dental problems are identified and treated before they can turn into larger and more serious problems.

We recommend coming in every six months for a cleaning and checkup, as long as you aren’t experiencing any pain or discomfort around your teeth, gums or jaw. If you are, then make an appointment to come in right away. With frequent, regular checkups, Dr. Alidadi can check for early signs of tooth decay, gum disease, TMJ (jaw joint) dysfunction and other problems.

Digital X-rays and intraoral camera

We take digital X-rays, which use less radiation and provide sharper images than conventional X-rays.

In addition to digital X-rays, Dr. Alidadi takes photos of the inside of your mouth with an intraoral camera. She is able to see instant images of your teeth and gums on her monitor and can show you exactly what she sees.

DIAGNOdent™ laser cavity detection

The DIAGNOdent system utilizes a precise laser device to scan for hidden cavities. If tooth decay is present, it will glow. The laser scans areas of your teeth that traditional instruments cannot reach. Laser scanning enables the doctor to identify tooth decay in its early stages, before the tooth needs more extensive procedures.

Periodontal (gum) exam

Dr. Alidadi will go over your X-rays with you.

Gum disease is the primary cause of tooth loss. With a periodontal exam and charting, Dr. Alidadi will determine how healthy your gums are, and if gum disease is present, what the best treatment option is.

TMJ and bite exam

When the jaw joint (temporomandibular joint, or TMJ) is not aligned properly, it results in pain, headaches and clicking or popping sounds when the mouth is opened and closed. This can result in problems eating and can cause excess wear on the teeth. Dr. Alidadi checks your TMJ for proper alignment.

Oral cancer screening

Dr. Alidadi performs a visual oral cancer exam as part of the new patient exam, and as part of maintenance checkups. An oral cancer screening can detect a small problem before it has a chance to develop into a larger one.

Gentle, Tooth-Colored Fillings

Mercury vs. tooth-colored fillings.

Dr. Alidadi uses only tooth-colored fillings.

We use tooth-colored composite fillings instead of traditional amalgam (metal) fillings. Not only are these more aesthetic, they are also healthier for your body than amalgam fillings. If an injection is needed prior to the procedure, Dr. Alidadi has a very gentle touch and reassuring manner, to put you at ease.

In many cases Dr. Alidadi can use her dental laser rather than a drill to prepare the tooth for a filling, often making anesthesia unnecessary.

Warning Signs of a Serious Dental Problem

Many oral health problems go undetected, as they don’t cause any pain or discomfort until they’ve become very serious. Regular cleanings and checkups – at least once every six months – will help you avoid serious oral health issues in the future.

Signs of oral health problems

  • Bad breath
  • Loose teeth
  • Bleeding gums
  • Swollen, tender and red gums
