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 are able to help patients prevent many dental emergencies, tooth decay, and other complications that arise from lack of dental hygiene. The techniques we use are actually based on effective dental methods that promote early diagnosis and disease elimination.

Comprehensive Exams

It is important to us to establish a baseline reading on every aspect of your oral health. Through comprehensive new patient exams, we are able to monitor pathological or anatomical changes that affect your neck, head, jaws, and teeth. From checking for tooth decay to screening for TMJ problems, our dentists do not leave out a single step.

Oral Cancer Screenings

We conduct a visual and manual oral cancer screening during every regular examination. Oral cancer isn’t just a risk to individuals that use tobacco or alcohol, it can be present in many young adults. Symptoms are not usually evident until the cancer has dramatically progressed, so early screening and diagnosis is incredibly important for a successful treatment.

Digital X-Rays

By implementing digital x-rays into our facility, we are able to decrease the total 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.

Intra-Oral Cameras

Implementing the use of intra oral cameras into everyday visits allows Drs. Kianpour and Parovi to show patients what they’re seeing during an examination. This improves patient understanding regarding treatment needs and helps answer questions about their dental health.

Hygiene

All dental cleanings are actually done through gentle Cavitron instrumentation. Cavitrons doesn’t just 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 which means you get much more time with a dentist when you are in our office, and helps our dentists get to know you better.

Gum Disease Therapy

Combating gum disease should not be taken lightly. Actually, it is the main reason for 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 path.

Fluoride Treatments

Topical fluoride treatments are applied after every cleaning for both kids and adults. Fluoride combats tooth decay, treats dental sensitivity, and aids in rebuilding demineralized or weak enamel.

Mouthguards

Protective guards are important for preventing fractures and excessive wear due to bruxism or sports. 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 perhaps clench should have a night guard to use so that teeth and restorations don’t fracture or quickly wear away.
