Regular teeth cleaning is an extremely important task that can greatly benefit your oral health. Our trained specialists can remove harmful plaque buildup caused by bacteria and food to prevent tooth decay and gum disease. There are two types of teeth cleaning: regular cleaning and deep cleaning. Regular cleaning is just a basic cleaning of the teeth, while deep cleaning is more advanced and involves cleaning the root surfaces.
Sealants consist of liquid coatings that bond to the chewing surface of teeth. Typically, these surfaces become worn, eventually causing pain and other problems. Sealant treatment can strengthen these areas and prevent any further damage to your teeth. It’s also a great way to prevent cavities and bacteria from gathering around your teeth. Sealants are available at our La Mirada office.
Fluoride is a natural mineral that is found in many different foods and most water. It’s known to be extremely effective tin the prevention of tooth decay. Fluoride treatments are not only recommended for everyone but are an ideal solution for people who have sensitive root surfaces.
