The dental checkups and cleanings administered at Behzad Abadi DMD are designed to address every facet involved in maintaining a good oral health. This starts with a thorough dental cleaning performed by one of our highly trained dental hygienists followed by a dental exam performed by Dr. Behzad Abadi.
If Dr. Behzad Abadi has any concerns about the mineral integrity of your tooth enamel, he might recommend performing a fluoride treatment at the end of your appointment. This simple treatment can significantly bolster the strength of your tooth enamel. This can help prevent cavities and other complications between your twice-annual dental checkups.
This will expose your tooth enamel to concentrated fluoride that will effectively work to remineralize your tooth enamel.
Dr. Behzad Abadi administers the treatment by pouring a small amount of concentrated fluoride gel into a tray. A small suction hose is then inserted between the trays to capture any stray gel and saliva.
You should avoid eating or drinking for at least a half an hour afterward to allow the fluoride to deeply penetrate deep into your tooth enamel.
If your teeth show significant signs of enamel erosion, Dr. Behzad Abadi might prescribe daily use fluoride supplements. This typically comes in the form of a concentrated fluoride toothpaste or mouth rinse.
