General and Preventive Dentistry
Protection and Prevention for Your Smile
Our goal at PK Dentistry is to keep our patients’ natural teeth healthy for a lifetime. Through routine, preventive care and rigid screening processes, we’re able to help patients prevent many dental emergencies, tooth decay, and other complications that occur from lack of dental care. The techniques we use are based on effective dental methods that promote early diagnosis and disease elimination.
It’s important to us to establish a baseline reading on every aspect of your oral health. Through comprehensive new patient exams, we can monitor anatomical or pathological changes that affect your teeth, jaws, head, and neck. From checking for tooth decay to screening for TMJ problems, our dentists don’t leave out a single step.
Oral Cancer Screenings
We conduct a visual and manual oral cancer screening during every routine examination. Oral cancer is not only a risk to people that use alcohol or tobacco, it can also be found in many young adults. Symptoms aren’t usually evident until the cancer has dramatically progressed, so early screening and diagnosis is extremely important for successful treatment.
By implementing digital x-rays into our facility, we can decrease the amount of radiation to our patients, improve communication by having images available on-screen during your visit, and lessen the time you spend in the treatment chair.
Implementing the use of intra-oral cameras into everyday visits allows Drs. Parovi and Kianpour to show patients what they are seeing during an examination. This improves patient understanding regarding treatment needs or questions about their oral health.
All dental cleanings are done through gentle Cavitron instrumentation. Cavitrons not only remove calcified tartar deposits through vibration, they also irrigate bacteria away from the tooth, roots, and gum tissues. Both of our dentists provide hygiene services to our patients. That means you get more time with a dentist when you’re in our office, and helps our dentists get to know you better.
Gum Disease Therapy
Combating gum disease isn’t something that should be taken lightly. In fact, it’s the primary cause of tooth loss for adults. We offer full-service periodontal therapy including scaling and root planing, Periomed, and Peridex treatments to help our patients stop gum disease dead in its tracks.
Topical fluoride treatments are applied after every cleaning for both children and adults. Fluoride combats tooth decay, treats dental sensitivity, and aids in rebuilding weak or demineralized enamel.
Protective guards are essential for preventing fractures and excessive wear due to sports or bruxism. Our athletic patients can benefit from a custom made guard to reduce dental trauma as well as help lessen the impact of concussions during their sports. Patients that grind or clench should have a night guard to wear so that teeth and restorations do not fracture or quickly wear away.
You never know when a dental emergency will happen; that’s why PK Dentistry is always ready. We’ll get you comfortable, take care of your needs, and protect your teeth. Call us immediately if you’ve experienced an emergency so that we can start caring for you right away.
