Teeth Cleaning Cerritos, Long Beach, & Lakewood
Dental hygiene is a part of preventive dentistry and the foundation of a healthy mouth. A healthy smile not only feels good, but looks good. We understand every patient is an individual with unique oral health care needs. This is why your initial hygiene appointment will include a comprehensive exam and a one-on-one visit with one of our dentists. The exam will include a full series of charting and x-rays, as well as a periodontal assessment to help us determine the best type of cleaning for the current condition of your gums. Once we determine that your teeth and gums are in their optimal condition, it’s imperative that we provide you with the right tools to keep it that way. Our team takes pride in how we take the time to listen to patient concerns, and educate them on the best ways to maintain optimum oral health between hygiene appointments.
Periodontal (Gum) Disease
Periodontal disease is an inflammatory condition that has been linked to many severe health conditions such as heart attack, stroke, and even cancer. Gingivitis is a common type of periodontal disease that cause inflammation, irritation, redness, and swelling of gums. Untreated gingivitis can escalate to more serious issues such as damage to your gums, jawbone, and tooth loss. Fortunately, gum disease is largely preventable through proper oral hygiene and routine visits to your dentist.
It is important to have healthy oral habits to prevent and minimize these risks. Numerous recent scientific studies indicate associations between oral health and a variety of general health conditions, including diabetes and heart disease. Continuous dental care will help both children and adults maintain optimal oral health throughout their lifetimes. Dentists’ areas of care are not limited to just their patients’ teeth and gums. Ancillary parts such as muscles of the head, the neck, the jaw, the tongue, and salivary glands are all included if they affect your oral health or function.
