We offer the following preventive care services at our Long Beach, CA dental office:
Professional Teeth Cleanings (Prophylaxis)
Dr. Karimi recommends that patients receive dental cleanings and routine exams at least twice per year to keep their smiles healthy between appointments and prevent oral disease.
Our office uses the most advanced dental tools and technologies to ensure every preventive exam is comfortable, efficient, and effective. Dr. Karimi and his skilled team will polish the teeth, abolish plaque, and assess the state of your oral health to make further treatment recommendations. For some patients, we may recommend receiving an additional tooth strengthening mineral treatment or more frequent, targeted cleanings.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Gentle, thorough oral cancer screenings are included within each preventive exam with our team. These non-invasive screenings can be the best form of prevention!
Nightguards For TMJ Pain
Bruxism, or teeth grinding, is often associated with TMJ, headaches, and uneven wearing of the teeth. To help fight the effects of teeth grinding while you sleep, Dr. Karimi creates custom-made night guards to protect the smile and keep painful headaches at bay. Our advanced orthotics are always specially fitted to each patient, helping to correct and preserve a healthy bite function.
Mouthguards For Athletics
Do you participate in sports? If you're involved in any type of athletics, smile protection is important! Athletic mouthguards are simple, effective solutions to protect the teeth against injuries and concussions. Karimi Dental creates custom athletic mouthguards for each patient for a comfortable, seamless fit.
Desensitizing Treatments For Sensitive Teeth
Are your teeth sensitive to heat and cold? At Karimi Dental, we want to make it easier to enjoy the foods you love with simple, non-invasive desensitizing treatments. At your examination, Dr. Karimi will assess your smile to rule out serious causes of your tooth sensitivity. He will then apply a special paste designed to relieve the sensitivity for months!
Periodontal (Gum) Therapy
At the basis of oral health is the health of the gums and their underlying bone. Statistics have shown 80% of adults have a form of gum disease. At Karimi Dental, our goal is always early diagnosis and treatment that will allow you to keep your teeth healthy for a lifetime! In many cases, we'll use localized antibiotics to treat the gums and design a care regimen customized to your needs. In more serious cases, we can refer you to a trusted, qualified specialist.
Gum health has been shown to be the most significant diagnostic factor in determining your risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke. Trust Karimi Dental to keep those teeth and gums healthy!
