Your Laid Back, Relaxing General Dentist in Phoenix, AZ

You might only think about going to the dentist when you have a problem like bleeding gums or a toothache. But did you know that regular visits to your dentist can actually prevent serious dental issues and expensive procedures? Furthermore, studies have shown that an unhealthy mouth can raise your risk for serious health problems like heart attacks, strokes, premature births, and diabetes. Can you really risk skipping your regular dental exams and teeth cleaning with your entire well being at stake?

But there’s no need to panic. Because here at Modern Smiles Family Dentistry, we understand that you probably don’t like going to the dentist. We also know that if you were raised in the older days of dentistry, you may have had a bad experience. But today’s general dentistry has changed. Modern dentistry from teeth cleaning to dental x-rays and dental exams have changed and is now focused on ensuring you’re as comfortable and relaxed as possible.

Teeth Cleaning: Even if you’re the most meticulous person when it comes to brushing and flossing at home, you can never ensure your teeth and gums are entirely free of plaque and tartar buildup.

  • Dental X-Rays: One of the most important tools we have for detecting dental problems in your mouth as early as possible are dental x-rays. In fact, dental x-rays can detect even the smallest oral health problems at their earliest stages, long before you even realize you have an issue, including cavities, gum disease, oral infections and some types of tumors. Here at Modern Smiles Family Dentistry, both of our Phoenix locations feature digital x-rays which expose you to 90% less radiation than conventional x-rays because we want you to be healthy, comfortable, and safe.
  • 3D Imaging: Sometimes regular digital x-rays aren’t enough and you need a 3D x-ray, also known as “Dental Cone Beam CT.” This type of 3D Imaging allows us to get 3-dimensional images of your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways, and bone, all in one scan. Why would you need this? Because sometimes we need to check for impacted teeth, tumors, or a better image so we can accurately place dental implants.
  • Dental Exams: In addition to regular teeth cleaning, your annual dental exam is crucial to maintaining both your dental health and your overall health. Plus when you have a healthy smile, you feel more confident, attractive and happy. There’s no substitute for a healthy smile. Our dental exams are always gentle, relaxing, and thorough and we always go out of our way to answer your questions and make you feel completely at ease.
