Dr. Taraneh Mahjoobi is a leading dentist in Nashua, New Hampshire. Learn about some of the most common dental treatments provided at Mahjoobi Family Dentist.

CAVITIES
When you get a cavity, Dr. Mahjoobi will use a special dental filling to repair your tooth. It’s important to address any cavities as soon as possible to remove decay, and replace the damaged parts of the  tooth.  The special dental material used in your filling will fill the hole that the decay left. For most patients, fillings are virtually undetectable. This is because the materials used for fillings are bonded, tooth colored composite resin fillings.  With regular trips to Dr. Mahjoobi, she can examine your teeth for any signs of tooth decay. When cavities are caught early enough, treatment is relatively quick and painless.

BONDING
Bonding is a popular cosmetic dental procedure. Dr. Mahjoobi is trained in the latest bonding techniques to improve the appearance of a discolored or chipped tooth. Patients who are concerned about damage done to the tooth by decay, to alter the alignment of a tooth, or who wish to close gaps between the teeth, might benefit from a bonding procedure.

SEALANTS
Sealants are a great solution for people who are at risk for cavities due to narrow grooves on the chewing surface of a tooth. Sometimes, these areas of the tooth cannot be adequately cleaned by brushing. When this happens, the fine grooves or pits can accumulate cavity causing plaque. Despite the patient brushing, the areas can be too narrow to be cleaned. This is what leads to troublesome cavities. Dr. Mahjoobi can examine your teeth and let you know if you are a good candidate for sealants. The procedure involves Dr. Mahjoobi applying a special coating to seal the grooves and pits. The treatment will make it possible to brush off all the plaque and keep your teeth healthy.

NON-SURGICAL GUM TREATMENTS
Patients can suffer from problems with the gums, ligaments or bone around the teeth. In some cases, these problems can be treated without surgery. Dr. Mahjoobi can examine your gums and discuss your options. Non-surgical gum treatments usually involves a deep cleaning or root planing done under a local anesthetic. If the gum disease is more extensive, Dr. Mahjoobi can discuss treatment with surgery or extraction. Your best bet is to seek treatment at the first sign of a problem. Detecting problems as soon as possible is a major factor in your treatment options. With regular dental visits, Dr. Mahjoobi can help you detect any problems.

X-RAYS
X-rays are an important part of examining your teeth, supporting bone, and gum tissue. Dental X-Rays are the best and most accurate way to detect dental disease.  Dr. Mahjoobi and her staff use the latest technology and practices to safely administer dental X-Rays. In our office, we use digital radiography which allows us to take X-rays using 50-70% less radiation than conventional X-rays. Digital x-ray technology allows us to enhance the images for better diagnosis of  dental diseases.
