Bringing a smile to every face, every day!


Is there anything worse than not being able to smile because of stained teeth? We at Amir Sanjabi, DDS make taking care of your teeth, our business. We believe that prevention is the key to a bright smile. Our focus is to improve your oral health, and that starts with a thorough dental cleaning.

Why Do You Need Dental Cleanings?


There are over 200 species of bacteria that thrive in the mouth. This is completely natural and not all of these bacteria are harmful; however when bacteria overstay their welcome, they form a buildup of sticky plaque on your teeth. This plaque can result in detrimental dental problems like tooth decay and gum disease. Even with a daily teeth cleaning regimen at home, there are certain hard-to-reach areas in the mouth that cannot be easily cleaned by your toothbrush or dental floss. This is why many still often face oral problems, like bad breath, bleeding gums, tartar, and cavities.

Fortunately, a dental cleaning at Amir Sanjabi, DDS twice a year can help prevent this. Our experienced dentists can help achieve perfect oral health by removing the buildup of plaque and tartar on teeth with the help of state-of-the-art tools. The yellow tartar deposit specifically cannot be removed by just brushing and needs a dentist's intervention.

Risk Factors Associated With Poor Oral Hygiene


At Amir Sanjabi, DDS, we advise patients who have one or more risk factors to seek standard cleaning as many as four times a year. Some risk factors associated with poor oral hygiene are:
•  Poor oral habits
•  Heredity
•  Tobacco use
•  Old age
•  Diabetes
•  Gingivitis
•  Medication
•  Hormonal imbalances
•  Substance abuse

Professional Dental Cleaning


The American Dental Association strongly recommends visiting a dentist twice a year for dental checkups. The first part usually involves dental cleaning, in which the dental hygienist at Amir Sanjabi, DDS will perform the following tasks:
•  Removing the buildup of plaque from your teeth, using specialized tools that help prevent oral diseases.
•  Treating stubborn and calcified tartar that forms a strong bond on the teeth and can lead to conditions like gingivitis. Removal requires scaling of the teeth.
•  Applying a highly concentrated rinse, gel or varnish of fluoride to prevent enamel erosion.
•  Painting sealants on children’s teeth to protect the enamel from acids and plaque.
•  Adjusting and cleaning of dentures/partial dentures.
•  Providing a professional polish to your teeth which will remove surface stains and make them smooth, shiny, and white again.
•  Performing dental flossing that removes any food particles, debris or polish that may have snuck in between your teeth during the cleaning procedure.

If you have a history of oral or periodontal diseases, Amir Sanjabi, DDS will review your case and may recommend deep cleaning options or other appropriate treatments.
