Recent studies show that your overall medical health is directly affected by your oral health. Dr. Muradian takes a comprehensive approach to oral health by recognizing that maintaining strong teeth, healthy gums, and a radiant smile is part of an overall regimen to ensure your well-being.
Preventative Dentistry is a joint effort between Dr. Muradian, the hygienist and the patient. With proper brusing and flossing at home and regular dental cleaning, together we can figh gum disease, one of the major causes of tooth loss. We also use early detection techniques and sealants to fight aganist tooth decay.
In addition, Dr. Muradian performs an Oral Cancer Screening Exam during the regular dental cleaning appointment. He will check your neck and oral tissue for lumps, red and white patches or recurring sore areas. Screening for early changes in the oral tissue help detect cancer at a stage when it can be more successfully treated.

Dental Checks Ups
Routine dental care and check-ups are necessary in order to keep your mouth healthy. Many symptoms can often go undiagnosed because they have no symptoms. At the routine dental check-ups, our Simi Valley dentist will examine your teeth and gums for signs of decay, gingivitis and other oral problems.

Oral prophylaxis, also known as dental cleanings, is completed by our dentist or dental hygienist to help remove plaque and tarter from your teeth in order to prevent tooth decay, cavities or gingivitis. It is recommended that all patients visit our Simi Valley dental office at least twice a year, unless instructed otherwise by our Simi Valley dentist.
Dental sealants act as barriers to prevent dental cavities. Sealants are generally applied to the chewing surface of the teeth, where decay most often occurs. Easily applied by our dentist, sealants will help protect vulnerable areas by protecting teeth from plaque and food.
