A Focus on Preventive Dentistry
Although we can treat the toughest cases of tooth decay and periodontal disease, we’d much rather see our patients on better terms. That is why your Simi Valley family dentists place top priority on educating you about preventive dental care, which includes the following:
• Regular dental checkups
: When you and your children see us twice a year, we are able to spot new developments early enough that they can often be reversed or treated conservatively. We also perform a professional teeth cleaning at each checkup, which removes plaque and tartar to help prevent gum disease. Adults and children can benefit from fluoride treatments to prevent decay, and children can receive dental sealants, which act as barriers to decay on their molars.
• Good oral hygiene at home
: Your oral health depends on flossing at least once a day and brushing at least twice a day. Your Simi Valley family dentist may additionally recommend that you use a specific type of mouth rinse.
• A tooth-friendly diet
: We are happy to educate our patients, especially the youngest ones, about foods that can damage tooth enamel and lead to cavities such as sugary treats, starches, sodas, sports drinks and fruit juices.
• Negative impact of tobacco use
: Cigarettes and other tobacco products can wreck your general health and also lead to periodontal disease, tooth loss, bone loss in the jaw and oral cancer.
• The mouth-body connection
: You probably already know that periodontal disease can lead to tooth loss, but it is also linked to numerous serious health problems that affect the entire body. These conditions include heart disease, diabetes and respiratory illnesses. Preventing periodontal disease can help keep you healthier overall.
