Preventive Dentistry for a Healthy Smile
Good oral health requires consistency, which is why it’s so important to brush and floss your teeth regularly. This aspect of preventive dentistry is the best thing you can do for your long-term oral health. If you want to enjoy healthy, pain-free teeth as you get older, place a priority on good dental habits now!
While your at-home care is the most important part of a dental hygiene routine, it is also vital that you visit our office at least twice a year for preventive checkups. By coming into our office, you are taking an important step in your health to make sure that you don’t have to come back for a more serious treatment later on.
You can expect many things during your visit, including exceptional patient care. Here’s what your visit will be like:
Gentle, Patient-Focused Care
At Smiles Family Dental, we put you at the center of your experience. Drs. Angelie Zamora, Pauline Nguyen and Jennifer Mink, as well as all of our hygienists, are approachable, friendly and here to help answer any questions that you might have. You’ll find that we provide comfort and support every step of the way!
Professional Dental Examination
Our staff will review your dental history to understand the treatments that you have received in the past. We will then take a look at your teeth to check for plaque, tartar or other issues. Part of our exam also includes an evaluation of your gums to ensure that you are healthy and not developing periodontal disease.
If it is necessary, we will check for any cavities that you might have using X-ray technology. We can also use X-rays to make sure your teeth are growing correctly, your jaw is healthy and more. X-rays help us to identify and address any concerns that are vital to your well-being, and they allow us to easily share and explain your X-ray results.
We will clean and brush each tooth individually and remove any built-up plaque or tartar. Flossing and brushing on your own can’t always remove stubborn plaque and tartar, so it’s important that you come in to see us regularly for a complete and thorough cleaning. Regular cleaning goes a long way towards preventing cavities and gum disease.
This helps us to further remove any plaque that has built up along your gum lines. Thorough flossing helps to prevent gum inflammation, infection, and sore or bleeding gums. With regular flossing, supplemented by dental visits, you can prevent gingivitis, the earliest stage of gum disease, and keep it from developing into anything worse.
Your visit will have long-lasting results as long as you follow up the work that we do with good oral hygiene habits. By brushing and flossing properly, you will eliminate plaque and maintain beautiful, healthy teeth. We will take the time to answer any questions that you have from your visit. It’s important to us that you understand best practices for maintaining your oral health.
