Preventative Dentistry

The key to oral health lies in preventative dentistry. With regular dental care, you can fend off many of the teeth and gum problems that plague youth and adults alike. Many people mistakenly believe that dental visits are reserved for when there is a noticeable problem, when in fact, it is important to visit your dental provider two times a year. For those with health issues that demand more diligent dental care, you may need to visit your dentist more frequently. Tooth Spa, located in Sunnyvale, is dedicated to keeping your smile both beautiful and healthy with professional dental care in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere.

Benefits Of Preventative Dentistry

By visiting Tooth Spa regularly, you can help reduce, or avoid altogether, more painful and costly tooth and gum issues. By catching any issues before they develop into larger problems, you will save money in the long run. Not to mention avoiding the discomfort that comes with many advanced tooth and gum problems. Gum disease is a major concern because it is not only harmful to your mouth, but the bacteria associated with gum disease can spread to other parts of the body, contributing to serious health conditions.

Oral Examinations

At your upcoming dental visit, we will conduct an oral examination to establish the health of your teeth and gums. We will look for any common problems such as cavities or gum disease while they are still in the early stages, thereby avoiding more complex issues. We may also take X-rays to observe the root system and anything that is not observable with the naked eye.

Dental Cleanings

Proper dental care also requires dental cleanings to help preserve your oral health. By cleaning and removing plaque deposits on the teeth, we can help reverse a diminished gum line. The removal of plague allows healthy gum tissue to reattach where it had previously receded, allowing it to help provide a barrier from bacterial growth. Safeguard your health with regular dental cleanings that help combat gum disease.

Brushing And Flossing

A proper brushing and flossing routine, when regularly practiced, is your best ally in combating gum disease. Our dental professionals take your at-home practice seriously, and we want our patients to continue brushing and regularly flossing. If you live in or near Sunnyvale and are searching for a warm and comfortable environment with the best in dental professionals, then call Tooth Spa today to schedule your preventative dental care appointment.
