Every new patient receives a thorough examination and a precise assessment of his or her oral health. Dr. Alavi will discuss your needs, answer your questions, advise you of options, and make her recommendations for treatment. Intra-oral cameras, computer imaging, and surgical telescopes are available when indicated for even more in-depth analysis and better results. Multimedia and projected presentations are used for comparative analysis and discussion of complex treatment plans and cosmetic makeovers.
We can perform even the most difficult cleanings thoroughly and comfortably using ultrasonic instruments. This gentle vibration, called cavitation, removes heavy deposits allowing us to reduce the need for scraping. You'll enjoy the nurturing care of regular professional cleanings. They enhance the health of your teeth and gums, and you'll feel better with your mouth and breath as fresh as they can be.
Deep Cleanings (Non-Surgical Gum Care)
Deep cleaning (scaling and root planing) is a procedure where the roots of the teeth are meticulously cleaned. The goal of scaling and root planing is to remove plaque, tartar, bacteria, and clean the tooth root surface which has been contaminated by the continued presence of elevated levels of bacteria.
