General Dentistry for Optimal Health
Routine care can prevent gum disease, decay, and other dental conditions before they are able to develop. We offer comprehensive checkups, screenings, and periodontal cleanings for adults, as well as children. Our team will help you determine the best practices and products for your daily oral hygiene routine. We also offer dental sealants for added protection from bacteria and tooth decay. When needed, we can provide biocompatible dental restorations to re-establish optimal oral health.
If gingivitis and gum disease occur, we can provide the necessary periodontal treatment. Our team is dedicated to treating existing gum conditions and preventing these issues from reoccurring. We will make sure you understand the anatomy of your teeth and gums, ensuring a more effective at-home cleaning routine. We also take the time to teach you the proper use of dental tools such as a water flosser or electric toothbrush. Aesthetic Smiles℠ also provides deep cleanings to remove pockets of bacteria that are otherwise difficult to reach.
When your jaw is improperly aligned, you may experience pain that is difficult to alleviate. Patients suffering from temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders report discomfort in the jaws, mouth, face, neck, shoulders, and back, while some even suffer from chronic and severe temporal headaches. By addressing the underlying issue and repositioning jaw alignment, Dr. Motlagh and her team can relieve TMJ pain for long-lasting relief and improved oral function. Her unique approach to TMJ treatment can provide effective, non-surgical care to improve your oral health and overall quality of life.
Sleep apnea causes you to repeatedly start and stop breathing as you sleep. If you suffer from this condition, you may snore loudly, wake gasping and choking, and feel tired after a full night's rest. You may be referred to a physician who can complete a full sleep study to provide proper diagnosis. Afterwards, Dr. Motlagh can create a custom mouthguard to help open your airways and allow you to breathe properly. Your mouthpiece will be specially designed to allow your jaw to naturally relax, and rest in the correct position and alignment. Many patients prefer an oral appliance to a CPAP machine due to improved comfort and less noise.
Crooked and misaligned teeth can affect your confidence and self-esteem. As an alternative to traditional metal braces, our office provides Invisalign® and ClearCorrect to provide orthodontic treatment. Both of these methods use clear, removable aligner trays to exert a gentle pressure on your dental arches, pushing teeth into straighter, more even positions. Our office has been a preferred provider of Invisalign® for many years. Clear aligners are primarily used for cosmetic concerns, and are not recommended for patients who suffer from TMJ disorders.
If you are one of the many patients who suffer from dental anxiety, or are undergoing a lengthy procedure, you may benefit from our safe, effective sedation options. Sedation dentistry has transformed patient comfort during dental procedures. We offer both nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation to ensure you remain at ease during treatment at our office. With sedation, patients who have avoided dental visits for years can receive the vital care they need for a healthy smile. We also offer soothing music, warm neck pillows, and blankets to naturally take the body to a relaxed, meditative stage.
