When was the last time you received a teeth cleaning and exam? We recommend visiting at least twice per year to give yourself protection against common smile threats. By clearing plaque and tartar from the surface of your teeth, you reduce the likelihood of developing tooth decay, gum disease, and other common issues. On the other hand, waiting until you experience pain or other symptoms in your smile can mean a threat has continued for months or years. By taking a preventive attitude toward your oral health, you preserve healthy tissue for years to come!
At your North Hollywood, CA, dental office, our expert team is happy to help patients take care of their oral health. We look forward to seeing you regularly to help you maintain a winning smile. Because our teeth’s appearance is at center stage when speaking, oral health offers important mental benefits as well. Rest confidently when you know that your smile is in good hands. Each checkup gives you a chance to discuss any questions you have with your dentist or hygienist. We could go over any restorative or cosmetic procedures you think you may benefit from for example.
Prevent Tooth Decay And Gum Disease With Routine Cleanings
Brushing and flossing your teeth each day forms the basis for your smile care. Without this activity, you cannot effectively prevent decay or gum infection from resulting after bacteria land on the surface of your smile. However, you also require professional assistance to inspect your daily efforts and clear deposits your brush cannot handle. If bacteria calcify into tartar, our special tools can clear them to prevent tissue damage.
We can detect any problems with crowding or crooked teeth that prevent you from accessing the entire surface of your smile. If you cannot reach a crevice, bacteria risk storing there as well.
Your Dental Record Depends Upon Regular Examinations
Taking digital X-rays of your oral structures allows us to see changes in the teeth, gums, and bones not detectable by the naked eye. Storing these images in your file allows us easy review at future checkups. That means that avoiding the dentist can make it difficult to diagnose certain problems when we have no recent reference point. If we discover problems like periodontal disease during your exam, we will provide a treatment then or schedule an upcoming appointment to get them under control.
