Family Dentistry Q & A

What is family dentistry?

Family dentistry is a branch of oral health care that diagnoses, treats, and prevents oral health problems at all stages of life. Dr. Sajadi is uniquely equipped to serve every member of your family, from infants and young children to adults and senior citizens.

His years of training and expertise ensure prompt intervention for issues like tooth decay and gum disease, as well as high-quality restorative and cosmetic dentistry services to address chips, cracks, stains, and other imperfections. 

What services does family dentistry provide?

At Edgewater Dental, Dr. Sajadi offers a variety of family dentistry services, including:

Oral exams

An oral exam is a routine screening procedure used to diagnose oral health problems like tooth decay, gum disease, and oral cancer. During an exam, Dr. Sajadi uses a small, handheld mirror to carefully observe your teeth, gums, and tongue. If he notices any abnormalities, he can order additional tests as necessary. 

Professional teeth cleanings

During a professional teeth cleaning, a dental hygienist carefully removes plaque from the surfaces of your teeth and from underneath your gum line. Afterward, your hygienist polishes your teeth with a gritty toothpaste, flosses your teeth, and applies a fluoride treatment, if necessary.

Oral X-rays

Oral X-rays use low doses of radiation to provide detailed images of your tooth roots and jawbone. Dr. Sajadi uses oral X-rays to detect tooth decay and bone deterioration and to guide the placement of dental implants and other oral prosthetics. 

Oral surgery

Oral surgery refers to procedures that address abnormalities with your mouth, jaws, head, and neck. Whenever possible, Dr. Sajadi provides treatment using conservative, noninvasive measures, but certain complex problems may require surgery.

Some of the most common types of oral surgery include root canal therapy, tooth extractions, and gum tissue grafting.

Restorative dentistry

Restorative dentistry uses oral prosthetics like crowns, bridges, and dental implants to restore your smile to a healthy and aesthetically pleasing condition.

At Edgewater Dental, Dr. Sajadi specializes in dental implant restoration. If you experience implant failure or receive treatment from an inexperienced surgeon, Dr. Sajadi can correct the problems, preserving your jaw and teeth.

How often should I participate in family dentistry?

If you want to keep your teeth and gums healthy for years, it’s important to participate in family dentistry once every six months. 

Many issues like gum disease and cavities prevent few early symptoms. Regular check-ups can detect these problems before they increase your risk of other serious complications.
