Preventive Dental Care
Regular checkups, cleanings, and good dental hygiene form the foundation for a lifetime of oral health.
An excellent start to preventive dental hygiene is the everyday care taken at home, from eating the right foods to brushing and flossing your teeth routinely to prevent plaque buildup. However, plaque can hide in hard-to-reach spots in the mouth, and over time this may lead to tooth decay, gingivitis, and tartar build up. This harmful bacteria breaks down the enamel of the tooth that helps protect it, which can cause pain while eating or other discomfort in the mouth. Stains from food and drink can also build up on teeth, despite the amount of brushing one does at home.
Regular Checkups, Cleanings, and Screenings
Here at Pacific Smiles, we provide a complete range of preventive services to ensure your mouth, teeth, and gums are looking and feeling their best. Dr. Kim and his knowledgeable staff provide regular cleanings in order to remove any plaque build-up and stains that cannot be reached by brushing and flossing at home. Regular checkups ensure any left-over plaque is cleaned, as well as provide you with any further knowledge or steps that need to be taken in order to prevent cases of tooth decay or gum (periodontal) disease. To ensure your dental hygiene is always in check, we also provide Oral Cancer Screenings and Non-Surgical Gum Treatment. These steps taken during your regular checkup are important in order to provide the most amount of patient education available to you about the health of your mouth, teeth, and gums.
