General Dentist in Maricopa, AZ
Keep your mouth healthy with general dentistry care from Cobblestone Dental Center!
It’s important to keep your teeth healthy throughout your life. Regular checkups allow us to pinpoint problems before they escalate to cause pain or long-term health issues. Dr. Shah, a general dentist, and our helpful team dedicate themselves to optimal dental health care; we encourage regular checkups every six months and an ongoing relationship with our practice to keep your smile looking and feeling its best.
Children have unique oral healthcare needs. Cobblestone Dental Center tailors pediatric services to your little ones. Ask about preventive fluoride treatments, as well as sealants to protect a child’s hard-to-reach back teeth from decay.
You can expect:
- a complete, tooth-by-tooth exam with a special cavity detection laser called DIAGNOdent. This tool enables us to scan the teeth, without the use of radiation, to find decay at its earliest stages.
- an occlusal analysis to help us determine whether your jaws and teeth align normally when you bite down. Misalignment can lead to TMJ dysfunction, which causes symptoms such as pain and aching.
- a periodontal exam, during which Dr. Shah and our hygienists will assess the health of your gums. As a general dentist, Dr. Shah can help you prevent or treat gum disease, the condition responsible for 80 percent of adult tooth loss in the United States. We perform scaling to carefully remove plaque and tartar below the gum line and root planing to smooth the rough edges on a tooth’s root. We also administer the antibiotic Arestin to fight periodontal bacteria.
- a thorough oral cancer screening. We strongly encourage regular exams so that we can catch this deadly disease in its earliest stages. Oral cancer will kill half of those who have it within five years. Dr. Shah will help identify and recommend treatment for oral cancer.
If you play sports, the best defense for your smile is an athletic mouthguard. Dr. Shah can custom fit a protective mouthpiece to shield your teeth and gums from injuries.
Accidents happen – especially in contact sports such as football, hockey, volleyball, and basketball. Even mountain biking, one of Dr. Shah’s favorite weekend activities, is known to knock out a tooth now and then when accidents occur. Dr. Shah recommends that active adults and children wear a protective mouthguard.
The average tooth has multiple grooves on its surface where many bacteria and food particles and reside. To help protect your teeth, our general dentistry team can apply a clear dental sealant to the area. Sealants work to prevent food and other debris from lodging themselves on your enamel. Talk to Dr. Shah about this procedure to protect your teeth today!
