General Dentistry Services in Encino
The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends routine check-ups and professional dental cleanings once or twice per year, depending on the patient. While they can be easy to put off or postpone when busy schedules and obligations get in the way, regular dental cleanings are an essential component of oral and overall health.
When left untreated, plaque buildup can lead to serious dental problems like gingivitis and periodontal disease. Plaque buildup can also lead to inflammation, which has been shown to potentially play a role in larger general health problems in some cases. Establishing a professional dental cleaning routine with Dr. Katrin once or twice each year is an essential investment in a beautiful and healthy smile.
The look and feel of dental fillings have come a long way in the last few decades. Whether you need to have a new cavity filled or would like to have old amalgam (metallic) fillings replaced, Dr. Katrin uses the most modern techniques and materials available to restore tooth structure and functionality for a beautiful, natural looking smile.
The prospect of having one or several teeth extracted can be frightening and overwhelming for many patients, and putting off theprocedure may seem like a tempting alternative in order to avoid the possible pain and recovery time associated with a dental extraction. But delaying an extraction can lead to complications and additional oral health problems. Dr. Katrin works with each patient on an individual level to address any concerns a patient may have.
Some common reasons for dental extractions include:
- Tooth decay
- Make room for orthodontia or relieve crowding
Contact Dr. Katrin to schedule a consultation and discuss your options. Don’t let tooth pain continue to hold you back from your best smile ever!
Like human teeth, dentures come in many shapes and sizes and can help restore your smile or give you a new and improved one! Depending on the patient’s condition and specific needs, Dr. Katrin offers a variety of denture treatments:
- Complete Dentures – Replace all of the patient’s natural teeth.
- Partial Dentures – Used for patients who only need one or several teeth replaced.
- Removable Implant/Retained Dentures – This type of denture is held in place by an abutment connected to the patient’s bony tissue. They are also removable, but can provide greater support and stability than traditional dentures.
Speak to Dr. Katrin to learn more about the different types of denture treatments available, and which style may be best for you.
Accidents happen. Whether you’ve lost a crown or filling at a dinner party, or suffered trauma in an accident, Dr. Katrin is available to treat patients in Encino when they need dental care the most.
Younger patients often have specific needs and require more care and attention than adults. Dr. Katrin Azizzadeh specializes in offering gentle and compassionate treatment to help young patients overcome nervousness and fear of the dentist in order to help establish early and lifelong healthy oral care habits and practices.
Few dental procedures instill more fear and anxiety in patients than the mythical root canal! But contrary to popular belief, root canals are not necessarily more painful or traumatic than other dental procedures. With advanced tools and careful attention to detail, Dr. Katrin will work to address any issues and concerns before and after the procedure, taking special care to make each patient as comfortable and relaxed as possible.
While many people experience little to no pain or adverse effects from the eruption (growth) of wisdom teeth, many people can experience pain and complications that will require extraction of some or all four wisdom teeth. The procedure can range from a standard extraction to a more involved procedure, depending on the condition of the patient’s teeth. Wisdom teeth that are impacted (grow at an angle or are trapped in the jaw bone) or severely decayed pose a greater risk for complications, and may require special attention.
