Teeth cleaning 91401
Biannual dental visits are part of an overall strategy for maintaining strong, healthy teeth and gums now and in the long term. Along with a nutritious diet, twice-daily brushing, and a vigorous flossing before bed each night, coming in for our teeth cleaning 91401
acts as a way to keep dental plaque and tartar from resulting in cavities and gum disease. Here at Van Nuys Dental Care, we are committed to improving your chance for optimal oral wellness. We just need you to do your part by coming in two times per year.
Our teeth cleaning 91401 is part of a comprehensive oral examination at our office. It is the preventive part of your visit, which is combined with addressing any existing cavities before they can grow and put you at increased risk for a toothache and other complications. Tartar is the hardened version of plaque. Both are bacterial in nature. The essential difference is that tartar cannot be removed with brushing and flossing. It takes professional attention to do that. And having that attention every six months is important because it stops tooth decay before it can lead to larger cavities, possible infections, root canal, or even the loss of a tooth. Gum disease, though, is just as much a concern as tooth decay. The early stage is called gingivitis. You may not even know you have it, but if you do notice symptoms, they are typically confined to irritation and redness. Our teeth cleaning 91401
stops the progress of gum disease before it can get to the advanced stage of periodontitis, and possible indications that include bleeding when you brush, receding gums, and persistent bad breath.
Don't take the chance of putting your teeth and gums in danger. Call our office and schedule your biannual visit. It's simple, painless, and effective.
