Dentist in Granada Hills

Dental x-rays should be administrated based on each patients oral health needs and treatment plan.

You and your loved ones deserve the best dental care for your smiles and our team at Smile Arts Dentistry want to provide you with that kind of care. Our goal is to provide a comfortable and relaxing environment where patients of all ages can receive preventive, cosmetic, and restorative dental care to improve or restore the function and aesthetic of your mouth to its former glory.

For first-time patients, your dental consultation with Dr. Ray Firooz will include:

  • Taking a full health history - Before the actual checkup, we will go through your health history to identify any oral or general health concerns that we should keep an eye on. This is a vital step to help us provide you with the best care possible.
  • X-rays - Depending on the symptoms, your risk of diseases, age, and other factors, Dr. Firooz may recommend x-rays to diagnose underlying problems such as abscesses, impacted teeth, decay between teeth, cysts or tumors, and damage to the jawbones. We use modern equipment that emits virtually zero radiation, so there‚Äôs no need to be afraid.
  • Full examination - Dr. Firooz will examine your gums and teeth to determine how well you brush and floss your teeth. He will also inspect your entire mouth for any signs of damage, infections, disease, or symptoms of other conditions like oral cancer. The objective is to identify any problems that may need immediate treatment or intervention.
  • Professional cleaning - Nearly every dental visit involves professional cleaning to remove built up plaque and calculus below the gumline that may cause gum disease, bad breath, cavities, and other problems.

Depending on the results of your first visit, Dr. Firooz will discuss with you when your next dental visit will be, usually between 3 and 6 months, or sooner if further treatment is required, such as tooth extraction or dental repair or restoration.

From comfort features to cutting-edge treatment solutions for general, restorative and cosmetic dentistry, Smile Arts Dentistry is proud to present you with the excellent dental care your family needs. We believe that everyone should have access to affordable, quality dental care in an environment that is compassionate and inviting.
