    Ask a Dentist

    Looking for an answer to a specific question? Search through frequently asked questions or ask your own!

    How often should I go to the dentist?
    Most people need to visit their dentist for a regular hygiene visit twice a year, or once every six months. However. If you have gum disease, or a history of gum disease, your dentist may recommend more frequent visits. Another reason you may need to see the dentist more frequently is if you are undergoing orthodontic treatment. The bottom line is that you need to at least see the dentist twice a year unless told otherwise by your dentist.
    How safe are dental X-Rays?
    Dental x-rays are very safe. The amount of radiation that a dental x-ray produces is about the same as you would receive from a cross country airplane ride. Radiation is measured in millirems and one dental x-ray has only .5 millirems.
    What exactly is a cavity?
    Everyone knows that cavities are bad, but a surprising amount of people don’t know exactly what cavities are. A cavity is simply a small hole in the tooth that develops as a result of tooth decay. In other words, decay eats away at the tooth and results in a void space that disrupts the structure of the tooth. It’s important to get cavities repaired because they will continue to grow larger and more painful with time.
    How long will my dental restoration last?
    A common misconception is that dental restorations last forever but unfortunately this is rarely true. With time, dental restorations may break down or become loose, allowing decay to enter the area around the restoration and become problematic. Although you can’t expect your fillings, bridges, and crowns to last forever, you can do your part to make them last as long as possible. Maintain great oral hygiene and visit your dentist regularly to keep those restorations in great condition for as long as possible.
    What is the best way to whiten my teeth?
    It’s a tough question because there is no universal answer that applies for everyone. The fastest and most effective way to whiten teeth is typically an in-office professional whitening procedure. However, depending how dramatic you need your results to be, you may not require this type of procedure. Our best advice is to speak with your dentist or dental hygienist about what type of teeth whitening they would recommend.
    What should I do if I have bad breath?
    Bad breath is also known as halitosis. Some people have more severe cases of it than others. Some only experience it in the morning, some all day. The major cause of halitosis is microbial deposits found on the tongue. We suggest brushing your tongue with your toothbrush every time you brush and rinse with anti-bacterial mouthwash.

    Dr. Ataii is so amazing at what he does. His office is very clean and his staff is exceptional. I came into the office interested in Invisalign and we got started that day with Spark Aligners. I am 5 months in and my teeth have never looked better. Thank you Dr. Ataii and to your wonderful staff!

    Dr. Cima Mazar- Atabaki
    Pediatric Dentist
    We started to see Dr. Cima in 2016 when we first moved to CA. We have been very happy with our experience. Everyone is helpful, friendly, and well organized. Dr. Cima is out-standing as a dentist and has a warm, professional manner. My child, G, is shy and Dr. Cima treated her so kindly that she felt very comfortable. The dental work itself is excellent. We would highly recommend this office and Dr. Cima.

    Dr. Kelly Pierson
    Just returned from a cleaning, and reminded how terrific this dental office is. Every member of Arbor Dental is kind., professional, and most importantly: competent. I didn't think twice about my usual appointment because they had instituted covid safeguards, like waiting in your car and texting when they're ready. With previous dentists I had been so tense, and it's actually shocking to realize I'm always at ease going to Arbor Dental. This is a stellar dental practice.

    I highly recommend Dr. Manesh for dental needs. I've had a couple implants both zirconium and titanium and I could not be any happier. I love his office and all his staff is friendly and very informative.

    Dr. Sepideh Najaran
    Dr. Najaran and her staff at Sand Canyon Dental continue exceed my expectations after every appointment. She is highly skilled, attentive and takes time to listen to her patient's concerns. I appreciate her conservative approach and trust her and the staff at Sand Canyon Dental 100%.

    Innovations in Dentistry

    3D Printed Dentures

    Modern dentures are made from acrylic resin and other plastics. The labor-intensive and time-consuming process involves multiple patient visits and production steps. 3D printed digital dentures are a major step toward the overall simplification of the manufacturing process.

    Smart Toothbrushes

    Smart toothbrushes have sensors in the head of the toothbrush that send information on your brushing habits to an interactive app on your smartphone, usually via bluetooth. While a manual toothbrush will do just fine, these new brushes are supposed to help reduce the risk of tooth decay and other dental complications.


    Teledentistry allows dentists to capture images, take clinical notes and share that information with other dental professionals. The ability to offer certain dental services over the internet can provide much needed services to individuals who do not have regular or easy access to the dentist, especially relating to Covid-19.

    At Home Intra-Oral Camera

    Intra-oral cameras are usually used by dentists or doctors to show the inside of a patient’s mouth, as an alternative to using a mirror. Now there is an intra-oral camera that was designed for the general public, which can be used as a telemedicine tool to share images with your primary physicians. This tool is becoming widely popular due to Covid-19 limitations.
