We take pride in being gentle, compassionate, and professional.
WHAT IS GENERAL DENTISTRY?
Strong, clean teeth and gums are the building blocks to excellent overall health. A healthy smile doesn’t happen by accident; it takes a lot of work to maintain a strong oral health foundation. That’s why we recommend twice-yearly dental exams and cleanings at our Sacramento, CA dental office. Regular monitoring and examinations help guarantee excellent dental health. We are proud to offer comprehensive general dentistry that keeps our patients healthy and comfortable.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING A DENTAL CLEANING AT OUR OFFICE
Your dental cleaning and examination allow Dr. Fat to inspect your teeth and gums to look for signs of tooth decay or gum disease. If we find anything that requires continued dental treatments, we will sit down with you and discuss your options. You may brush and floss your teeth properly every day, but it’s not a guarantee you won’t get a cavity or worse. Dental cleanings scrape away hard to reach plaque and spot future dental problems.
Dr. Fat or our dental hygienist can remove all the plaque and tartar from all your teeth, then polish your smile. During your biannual dental cleaning, we may use x-rays to determine if there are conditions that are not visible with a visual inspection. X-rays can identify tooth decay, dental infection, bone health, cysts, and tumors. If you have good oral hygiene, twice a year, dental visits should be sufficient to maintain it. We recommend that patients with gum disease schedule dental visits more often to keep a close eye on their oral health.
WHAT TO KNOW ABOUT GUM DISEASE
Gum disease is especially harmful to your oral health since you may not have any symptoms. In its early stages, gum disease can be easily treated. Once gum disease goes untreated for a long enough time, it can get worse quickly. Your Sacramento, CA dental office is invested in helping you prevent gum disease by catching it when it first starts. Dental exams are instrumental in this phase; we can't treat something if we can't check for it.
There are certain signs you can look for at home, such as bleeding gums after brushing or flossing. Swollen and tender gums are also not normal and should be looked at. Without treatment, gum disease can only get worse and can even lead to tooth loss. If you think you might have gum disease, do not wait to schedule a dental appointment. Continued treatment is the key to a healthy smile.
Gum disease can impact your general health as much as your oral wellbeing. Studies show that there is a connection between gum disease and conditions like heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and more.
You simply cannot have healthy, strong teeth if your gums are inflamed. Maintaining healthy gums is as easy as scheduling your next dental appointment and taking care of your dental health at home.
