Our dentist Dr Paul Rashid DMD create a solid foundation in prevention so that our patients may enjoy improved oral health, a confident smile, and comfortable function for a lifetime!
Complete dental exams that evaluate your teeth, gums, bite, and function help us identify any problems as early as possible - when dental conditions are easiest to treat. By maintaining your regular dental exams, you can reduce the likelihood of tooth loss, periodontal (gum) disease, or unexpected dental emergencies.
Our comprehensive approach uses digital imaging, high-definition x-rays, and a diagnostic exam by one of our experienced dentists.
No two dental cleanings, like no two patients, are exactly alike. Each patient has different needs, and we customize our dental cleanings to meet those needs throughout your life. Hormonal changes, health changes, medications, and even pregnancy can all affect your periodontal health. By having regular dental cleanings and exams, we closely monitor those changes and rise to meet your oral health challenges so you can enjoy a comfortable, healthy smile.
No matter what type of dental cleaning you require, our dental hygienists will work gently and effectively to give you a clean, healthy smile.
Routine dental cleaning (prophylaxis) - A prophy includes removing any surface tartar and stains from the surfaces of your teeth above your gum line. Each dental cleaning is finished with a complete polish to give you a smooth, fresh feeling.
Mid-level dental cleaning - A mid-level dental cleaning is designed for our patients who have some catching up to do. We know that patients stay away from the dentist for a number of reasons - time, financial stress, and fear are just a few. We are here to help you get back on track! Our mid-level dental cleaning will remove tartar from your teeth above and below the gum line and restore your oral health.
Periodontal dental cleanings - For some patients, lack of care can lead to gum disease. Since gum disease is a serious threat to your overall health, we work diligently to restore your health. Our hygienists will spend extra time to remove all tartar, bacteria, and infection from above and below your gum line in order to promote healing. We will schedule necessary follow-up visits to help you maintain good oral health.
Most patients will have the need for at least one filling during their lifetimes, and we make even the most routine restorations a work of functional art. Using composite material, we match your fillings to your biological tooth color so that your dental fillings are seamless and blend naturally with your smile.
Composite material allows for conservative restorations, only requiring the removal of diseased or damaged tooth structure to be effective and long lasting.
Our dentist and hygienists are a wealth of knowledge and provide our cherished patients with the power they need to take control of their oral health with effective home care routines and preventive dentistry in our Lansing, MI dental office. We spend quality time with our patients, arming them with the knowledge they need to lead healthy lives with beautiful, confident smiles.
