Teeth Cleaning & Exams In San Jose
Good Dental Hygiene is the Foundation of Optimal Oral Health
A Focus on Keeping Your Teeth and Gums in Great Shape
Although regular brushing and flossing are important to dental health, it is equally important that you make regular visits to your San Jose dentist office to have your gums and teeth examined by a San Jose dentist Dr. A Heidari.
At Serenity Dental San Jose, we check your gums and teeth for even the slightest signs of decay and periodontal diseases, such as gingivitis and periodontitis. We also check your mouth and neck for red or white patches, lumps or other sore areas that could be signs of cancer. And we check your jaw for soreness that could indicate conditions like TMJ or TMD.
Oral Exam and Teeth Cleaning
In most cases, you will only need a simple cleaning and polishing, which works to brighten your teeth and remove tartar buildup. In the event that we discover serious gum conditions, we will recommend a deep cleaning, root scaling or planing. These procedures have a significant impact on preventing the loss of bone and helping you keep your natural teeth in the best possible shape.
We will also educate you on the best oral hygiene practices you can undertake to keep yourself from suffering significant dental-related problems. We often suggest lifestyle changes, including quitting smoking or limiting your soda and sugar intake.
