Visiting the dentist for your biannual dental cleaning is an important foundation for your oral health. Even those who practice impeccable dental hygiene will still have difficult to remove plaque and tartar that only a professional can remove. Our dental hygienist in West Hills, CA near Woodland Hills, CA will gently remove the tartar and plaque that you can’t as well as polish the teeth to a beautiful shine.
The dental hygienist will also check the condition of your gums by flossing between the teeth to check if there are any sensitivity issues. In following with a recent push from the American Dental Association, we also thoroughly check the mouth for any early indicators of mouth cancer. For those with dental work such as fillings, crowns, and dental implants, this is also a fantastic opportunity for the dentist to check on them and make sure they are still doing their job.
However, dental checkups are also about much more than getting a dental cleaning. Prevention is a major factor in making sure everyone’s mouth stays healthy. By conducting a digital x-ray, we can make sure there are no tiny issues within a tooth that could develop into full-blown problems later on. We are also able to look at the progression from previous x-rays to see if any barely noticeable issues should be addressed.
And while all of these additional preventive checks are fantastic, there is still nothing better than that amazing super clean and polished sensation you get from a professional dental cleaning. We look forward to seeing you soon for your next routine dental exam at our West Hills, CA, 91307 office near Woodland Hills!
The overall quality of your dental experience is very important to us.
This is THE place to go for your dental needs. You walk in and see their beautiful lobby that has a really big and soothing aquarium. They offer you snacks and drinks and the front desk girls always have a smile on their faces. The rooms are gorgeous! They even have those little cameras that take pictures of your teeth so you can see them (that was helpful because I had a crack on my tooth that I didn’t think it was a big deal until I saw it with the camera, ew!). The doctors are amazing. They didn’t try to sell me any treatment, but told me that their job was to educate me about oral health and my options, so I didn’t feel any pressure to proceed with anything I wasn’t comfortable with. I will come here for the rest of my life!
Just had work done by Dr. Mike Salekian today and was so impressed with how smoothly everything went!!!! I am usually terrified of the dentist (especially the numbing shots) but Dr. Mike was so gentle I honestly didn’t even feel him numbing me. He was very thorough at explaining everything so I felt comfortable the entire time. He is a very compassionate guy and truly cares about his patients. The assistant, Chris, is amazing too!! I highly recommend going to see them for any of your dental needs! You’ll be happy that you did! The front office is very accommodating when it comes to utilizing your insurance and making sure things are good on the financial side.
Recently, I was told I would be seeing a new dentist, Dr. Mike,by the excellent staff at West Hills Smile. After the first visit, I found Dr. Mike incredibly kind and very knowledgeable. We proceed with the treatment plan, and Dr. Mike continuously checked in while he was doing the procedure. Everything went fine, and it felt quick and painless. With the excellent care I received by Dr. Mike and continued support of the already great staff, I recommend this office. In my experience the staff is just as caring and willing to work with you as well. They go above and beyond, and really want to hear from you before a plan is in place, during your visit, and afterward if anything should pop up.
