Preventative Dental CareAn Overview

Are you experiencing tooth pain? Are you looking for a new dentist that will listen to all of your concerns?

We are your local Hunt Valley and Cockeysville dentist office for all of your general dental needs. 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 and Dr. Roham Rafat of Valley Dental Health are family dentists near Hunt Valley, MD. We offer a full range of preventative care and general dentistry services for patients of all ages. Preventative dental care helps patients avoid the development of complex oral health concerns. Two of the most common preventive dental care issues we treat include:

  • 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. With periodontal therapy by our dentists at Valley Dental Health, we will have you grinning with beautiful pink gums in no-time.
  • Tooth Decay: Cavities are a major concern for children’s dental health, but adults can be affected as well. Our cavity prevention begins with a thorough exam, dental cleaning and screening. Valley Dental Health uses new technologies such as digital x-rays, an intraoral camera, and computer software to aid in the early detection of cavities and tooth decay. Our dentists may also recommend the use of dental sealants to prevent cavities. Teeth that have already been affected by tooth decay can be treated through a range of procedures including dental fillings, dental crowns, or root canal therapy.

Whatever your dental issue, we are equipped to provide you the best dental experience possible. We welcome patients of all ages to experience what our Cockeysville dentist office has to offer.

Preventative Dental Care What to Expect

Examinations at Valley Dental Health are complete and comprehensive. Dr. Izadi and Dr. Rafat go beyond a simple visual inspection of your teeth. A Valley Dental Health exam includes a thorough evaluation of not only your mouth, teeth, gums, and jaw joints but also an evaluation of the structures in your entire head and neck. You will spend one-on-one time with the dentist to discuss your concerns and goals. Together, you will decide on a treatment plan that will help you achieve the best possible results.

Our examination generally includes:

  • Diagnostic x-rays
  • Oral cancer screening
  • Periodontal screening (for gum disease)
  • Dental caries (cavities) screening
  • Bite analysis and examination of temporomandibular joints (TMJ) and jaw position
  • Digital imaging for analysis, diagnosis, and treatment planning
  • 2-D and 3-D models for analysis and treatment planning
