Preventative Dental CareAn Overview

Establishing a routine oral healthcare plan is the best way to avoid most dental issues. For most people, this includes biannual visits to the dentist for professional cleanings, x-rays, and other preventive maintenance procedures.

Dr. Ashley Izadi, Dr. Roham Rafat and Dr. Lisa Williams of Valley Dental Health are family dentists near Hunt Valley, MD. We offer a full range of preventive care and general dentistry services for patients of all ages. Preventative dental care helps patients avoid the development of complex oral health concerns.

  • Gum Disease: It has been estimated that 75% of the adult population experiences some stage of gum disease. This condition is highly preventable and treatable with routine visits to the dentist. Dr. Rafat is a periodontist, specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of gum disease. We provide a full range of treatment options depending on the needs and condition of the patient.
  • Tooth Decay: Cavities are a major concern for children’s dental health, but adults can be affected as well. Valley Dental Health uses new technologies such as digital x-rays, an intraoral camera, and computer software that aids in the early detection of cavities and tooth decay.Our dentists may prevent cavities using dental sealants. Teeth that have already been affected by tooth decay can be treated through a range of procedures including dental fillings, dental crowns or when needed, root canal therapy.
