Teeth cleaning in Newport Beach
Do you want to make sure that your teeth and gums stay as healthy as possible? If so, you will want to come to our dental practice not only for teeth cleanings but for periodic dental exams. Visiting the dentist every six months is not only great for your dental health, but it can also be cost-effective as well. This is because when it comes to dental health, an ounce of prevention is often worth a pound of cure. It is much easier to fix a dental problem when it is in the early stages, rather than wait until it is advanced and needs more involved care. The same is also true with coming in to our practice for a teeth cleaning in Newport Beach.
When you have a teeth cleaning in Newport Beach at our dental practice you are also helping to keep gum disease from forming in your mouth. It is much easier to have a periodic teeth cleaning then to end up having to be treated for gum disease. At our dental practice, J Foster Weems DDS, our top-notch dentist of 25 years is Dr. J. Foster Weems. When patients come to our office for a comprehensive dental exam they have all aspects of their oral health examined. To begin with, our patients generally have a full set of x-rays taken to make sure that there are no problems developing under the gum line or between the teeth. Our dentist will then fully examine your teeth for signs of decay or other problems such as teeth grinding.
Our dentist will go on and continue to examine your mouth for any signs of oral cancer. Your gums will be thoroughly analyzed to make sure they are healthy and are not developing any deep pockets. If this is the case and it is determined that you have gingivitis, a precursor to gum disease, our dentist may recommend that you have a teeth cleaning in Newport Beach at our office several times over the coming months. If it is determined that you have gum disease, our dentist may recommend that you have a periodontal scaling and root planing treatment to help clear out the deep pocket set of form between your teeth and gums. Finally, your fight will be checked to make sure no problems are developing from TMJ or other oral health issues.

Newport Beach dental office
Here at our state-of-the-art Newport Beach dental office, expert dentist Dr. J Foster Weems and the rest of our staff love to provide top of the line dental care services to patients of all ages—even the littlest ones! In fact, pediatric dentistry is one of our major areas of expertise. With younger patients, prevention and education about dental health is key. That is why we believe it is never too soon to bring your child in for regular dental checkups at our Newport Beach dental office. During each checkup, Dr. Weems will not only provide a full dental cleaning and a full dental examination, but will also educate your child about basic dental health and how to care for their teeth in an age-appropriate and informative way. By coming in regularly and receiving not only these services but the patient education, your child is off to a great start to making good dental health habits second nature—and that is what is necessary to ensure that they will continue to take good care of their teeth and gums as they grow into independent adults. Aside from regular dental checkups, there are a number of services that are specific to pediatric patients and that can make a big difference. One example is the use of dental sealants. Dental sealants cover up newly erupted adult teeth in a clear coating that keeps them safe from decay and damage. Dental sealants can save you a ton of time and money in the long run by keeping your kid’s new teeth safe and protected! These are only some of the many services we have to offer.

Newport Beach dental implants
When you have teeth that need replacement, you have several options to choose from. There are fixed and removable dentures and dental bridges, and today’s most popular solution for teeth replacement, dental implants. If you are in need of Newport Beach dental implants, contact our practice of J Foster Weems DDS and see exactly what can be done for you.
Dr. J. Foster Weems has been dedicated to serving the oral health needs of our patients at our Newport Beach office for many years. Over the years, we have seen a growing interest in and requests for dental implants to serve as teeth replacement for our patients. Newport Beach dental implants are popular for many reasons including the fact that they are the closest thing to natural teeth. When a missing tooth is replaced with a dental implant it is as though the person has their actual permanent tooth restored. To begin with, the implant looks perfectly natural, just like your other permanent teeth. The implant is also as strong and functional as a permanent tooth, giving you the ability to be able to eat anything you want. Finally, if well taken care of with regular brushing and flossing, and by periodic trips to the dental office for cleaning, our Newport Beach dental implants can well last a lifetime.
Our Newport Beach dental implants are created in two steps. First, the titanium root portion must be surgically inserted into your jaw bone. (Our doctor will first need to determine that your jaw bone is healthy enough to hold the implant.) Then your jaw bone must heal, and the implant must fuse to the jaw bone during this time. This usually can take up to several months. Then, once the healing is complete, the top porcelain crown portion is permanently attached to the titanium root. At this point the implant procedure is completed, and you are left with a wonderful new tooth, or teeth, that act and feel just like your permanent teeth. Should you not want to have Newport Beach dental implants to replace missing teeth, there are many other options that Dr. Weems can discuss with you. If you would like to make an appointment to meet with Dr. Weems regarding your individual dental situation, contact our office today and make an appointment.
