Dental Exam and Cleaning
Your teeth are made to last a lifetime. Unfortunately, many people begin to lose their teeth as early as their thirties, and nearly 25 percent of seniors have no remaining teeth. Tooth loss is most commonly due to preventable factors, such as tooth decay and gum disease. Good dental hygiene, routine dental exams and professional cleanings can help you maintain good dental health.
Dental Exam Expert North Hollywood
A routine dental exam every six months can help our North Hollywood dental exam expert spot early signs of dental conditions. Cavities, gum disease and other dental health conditions are most treatable and in some cases reversible when they are diagnosed early. Our dentist will check for signs of these conditions as well as look for indications of oral cancer, check your dental restorations and make treatment recommendations that can help you achieve improved oral health.
Dental Cleaning Expert North Hollywood
Even if you brush after meals and floss religiously, you could still be missing plaque. Plaque that is not cleaned off can begin to harden into tartar within just 24 hours in some cases, and plaque that has hardened into tartar can only be removed by a dental professional. Plaque and tartar contain dangerous oral bacteria. These oral bacteria can infect the gums, and their acidic byproducts soften dental enamel, leaving it more prone to dental decay. Our North Hollywood dental cleaning expert removes plaque and tartar so that your teeth are cleaner and your gums are healthier.
Skipping your biannual dental exam and dental cleanup may leave your schedule more open for work or other appointments, but it also puts your dental health at risk. Putting off even one dental checkup can lead to costly dental treatments and time intensive future appointments. Contact us today to schedule your appointment with our North Hollywood dentist.
