It’s essential to create a prevention plan to guarantee the health of your teeth. Preventing dental disease starts at home with good oral hygiene and a balanced diet. While you can't prevent dental diseases with this alone, you still need to go to your routine dental checkups to keep your smile healthy.
Let Dr. Ejtemai’s dental office in Falls Church, Virginia, create a prevention plan catered to your specific dental needs. Our prevention plans include routine dental exams, dental cleanings, x-rays, sealants, and fluoride treatments.

Dental Exams & Cleanings
A comprehensive dental exam will be performed by Dr. Ejtemai at the beginning of your appointment and address any concerns during your visit.
At routine check-up exams, you can expect the following:
- X-rays, oral cancer screening, and gum disease evaluation.
- Examination of teeth to determine existence of decay, need for fillings and/or crowns.
- Remove built-up plaque and tartar from teeth
Fluoride works to strengthen teeth either before they emerge from your gums or after. Fluoride is crucial to making your teeth more resistant to decay.
A sealant is a thin, plastic coating applied to the chewing surface of molars covering any deep grooves (called pits and fissures) of the teeth. Sealants protect the teeth by sealing deep grooves, creating a smooth, easy to clean surface.
Dental x-rays are used to safely and accurately detect hidden dental abnormalities not visible by the naked eye and complete an accurate treatment plan. X-rays detect signs of decay, teeth infection and bone loss.
Your role in preventative care is important to impede any potential oral diseases. Personal home care consists of eating balanced meals, reducing sugar intake, and practicing good dental hygiene by brushing and flossing at least twice a day.
