At A Reason To Smile, we offer comprehensive family dentistry services at our Scottsdale, AZ dentist office to keep your smile healthy, confident and bright. Dr. Samandari and our Scottsdale dental team believe in the power of preventive dental care and effective oral hygiene habits to help protect your family's smiles for life! That's why we recommend each of our patients come in for a checkup every six months to stay ahead of any potential dental problems.
During your regular teeth cleaning appointment, our dental team will thoroughly assess your teeth and gums for any signs of gum disease, oral cancer or tooth decay. If we see anything concerning, we will fully inform you and answer any questions you have about treatment options. A Reason To Smile is proud to be your partner in protecting your oral health and whole body wellness.
A Reason To Smile offers a full spectrum of family dentistry and preventive dental services, including:
Our practice uses digital x-rays to produce enhanced computer images of our patient’s teeth, gums, and other oral structures and conditions. Digital x-rays are key to early detection and the effective treatment of dental problems. This technology also exposes you to lower levels of radiation than with film x-rays.
Cone Beam 3D Imaging
Dr. Samandari uses this advanced dental technology for precise diagnosis and dental treatment planning.
Our cone beam 3D imaging system is used for dental services like:
- Dental Implants
- Dental X-rays
- Restorative Dentistry
- Cosmetic Dental Treatments
The imaging system is at the center of everything we do at A Reason To Smile because it virtually eliminates all guesswork, allowing Dr. Samandari to see and plan dental procedures before he begins your treatment!
Professional Teeth Cleanings (Prophylaxis)
Dental prophylaxis is a cleaning procedure that thoroughly cleans the teeth. It is an important preventive measure to help stop the progression of gingivitis and periodontal disease. We recommend our orally healthy patients receive this type of professional teeth cleaning from Dr. Samandari twice a year.
Teeth-Strengthening Mineral Application
Mineral treatment is used to help support healthy tooth enamel. This teeth-strengthening mineral application can re-mineralize weak areas of tooth enamel, keeping them more resilient against bacteria that causes decay.
Oral Cancer Screening
Tobacco users aren’t the only ones who should be concerned about oral cancer. That’s why at A Reason To Smile, we provide oral cancer screenings as part of your regular-checkup to all of our patients over the age of 18.
Seal off deep grooves in the molars that are vulnerable to tooth decay with this inexpensive and effective preventive treatment. Dental sealants guard against cavities by forming a “shield” over the enamel of your teeth, keeping out bacteria and acids. Ask about our pediatric dental sealants too!
Desensitizing Treatments for Sensitive Teeth
Having overly sensitive teeth can be frustrating and painful. If you're suffering from sensitive teeth, ask Dr. Samandari what options are available to you.
Chronic halitosis is a common problem affecting more than 50 million people in the United States alone. Common halitosis remedies like mouthwashes and breath mints are often sufficient to mask the symptoms, but if you’re concerned about the root cause, schedule a dentistry appointment with Dr. Samandari to discuss your treatment options.
If you or your child are involved in any type of sport or athletic activity, wearing a custom-fitted mouthguard can be your best piece of smile insurance. Not only does a mouthguard protect your teeth, it can also reduce your risk of concussion.
Dr. Samandari views tooth extraction as a last resort, but sometimes it is necessary. Badly infected teeth can jeopardize the health of their neighbors and sometimes a tooth is too damaged to preserve. Before proceeding with an extraction, our Scottsdale dental team will review all of your treatment options with you to make sure you're comfortable.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
The best time to have wisdom teeth removed is during your late teenage years or early twenties. These immature wisdom teeth are smaller, so surgery is less complicated and potentially less painful. If your child's wisdom teeth have not started to erupt, we will use x-ray imaging to locate them and determine if it’s time to have them removed.
