Keep reading to learn more about our general dentistry services and how they can benefit you and your family.
Our General Dentistry Services
Children’s dentistry involves providing the youngest dental patients with the specific dental care they need. Dr. Agamov will work gently with your child, helping them feel safe and comfortable during their time at our dental office. She’ll also educate you and your child on how to properly care for their smile.
Emergency dentistry involves the quick treatment of damage and sudden uncontrollable pain to your oral structures. By scheduling an appointment with Dr. Agamov as soon as the issue occurs, she can help alleviate pain and prevent long-lasting damage to your mouth and jaw.
Gum Disease Treatment
Gum disease is an infection of the gums and one of the leading causes of tooth loss in adults. Dr. Agamov can treat every stage of infection with methods such as root planing and scaling. She can also help prevent your gum disease from returning by offering advice on better oral hygiene and scheduling extra dental exams to keep track of your oral health.
Migraine therapy involves treating the root problems, such as teeth grinding, that cause this unique temporal pain. Dr. Agamov offers migraine therapy using the NTI Tension Suppression System, a comfortable FDA approved mouthguard that only covers your two front teeth. This helps to prevent migraines so you can live your life without pain.
Oral Surgery & Tooth Extractions
Oral surgery refers to surgical procedures that are performed on any part of your oral structure, including your teeth, jaw, and gums. Dr. Agamov utilizes oral surgery to improve your oral health, while being gentle and keeping you comfortable.
Our oral surgery options include:
- Dental Implants
- Bone Grafting
- Sinus Lifts
- Tooth Extraction
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy is a process that helps Dr. Agamov save your teeth from extraction after infection or severe damage. Dr. Agamov will remove all infected and damaged tooth material, fill the tooth and if necessary, cover the affected tooth with a dental crown. This process can restore your oral health and prevent the need for extraction and more costly, invasive restorations.
Dental fear or dental anxiety is common and can stop you from visiting the dentist at all, endangering your oral health. To help patients overcome this fear and get the dental care you need, Dr. Agamov offers sedation dentistry services. Sedation is the safe and professional use of controlled substances designed to keep you calm and relaxed during your dental visit.
If you’re dealing with sleep apnea and you’re looking for a CPAP alternative, Dr. Agamov offers oral appliance therapy, which involves using a comfortable, quiet, and discreet mouthguard you wear to open your airway while you sleep. She also offers Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty or UPPP for more severe cases, which involves removing excess tissue in your throat to make the airways wider.
TMJ & Neuromuscular Dentistry
When your temporomandibular joints, the joints and tendons that connect your jaw to your skull, are damaged, it can cause debilitating issues. Dr. Agamov utilizes neuromuscular dentistry, which focuses on correcting jaw alignment and issues with the functional systems in the jaw or muscles (TMJ/TMD). Neuromuscular dentistry helps Dr. Agamov diagnose the main issue or issues, so you can get effective treatment and lasting relief.
Frequently Asked Questions
General dentistry includes Dr. Agamov diagnosing, treating, and managing your oral health, as well as preventing oral health issues to begin with. Your general dentist, Dr. Agamov, will educate you on how to care for your smile, helping to prevent the development and/or resurgence of oral health issues. She’s here to help patients of all ages by placing an emphasis on oral health and proper oral hygiene.
An electric toothbrush tends to be more effective than a manual toothbrush due to the aid from the oscillating motion and the use of built-in timers. You can still achieve good oral health with a manual, soft-bristled toothbrush if it’s ADA approved, you spend the right amount of time brushing, and you use a good brand of toothpaste with non-abrasive ingredients. However, Dr. Agamov recommends investing in an electric toothbrush if you can.
While some may be more susceptible to cavities, there are a few tips you can follow that may help you prevent cavities:
- Brush your teeth at least twice a day for at least two minutes
- Floss at least once a day, preferably before bed time
- Rinse between meals
- Limit sugary, hard, and sticky foods
- Avoid alcohol and tobacco products
- Stay hydrated
