If you want to make sure that you have healthy gums and teeth, you will want to have preventive dental care in the form of periodic dental cleanings and dental exams. At our dental practice, J Foster Weems DDS, you can be seen by our top-notch dentist, Dr. J. Foster Weems for preventive dental care; you can also receive a dental cleaning at our Newport Beach CA dental office.
In order to have excellent dental health, you also need to be impeccable about your oral hygiene. This means that you should floss and brush your teeth every day using proper cleaning techniques. You will also want to come to our Newport Beach CA dental office for periodic dental exams and dental cleanings. It is generally recommended that these each occur every six months, and many times our patients will have both of these services performed on the same day for their added convenience. During our dental exams, our dentist will make sure that your teeth are cavity-free, and free of any damage from tooth grinding. He will also check to make sure that there are no cracks in any of the dental fillings and that dental restorations are holding up well. Your gums will also be checked to make sure that you do not have gingivitis or mild-to-moderate gum disease. Our dentist will also thoroughly screen your mouth for any signs of oral cancer during our dental exams. And, your jaw will also be checked to make sure you are not suffering any problems caused by TMJ. When you have a regular preventive teeth cleaning at our office, all plaque, tartar, and food debris will be removed from the surface of the teeth and from between the teeth, as well. These materials will also be removed from just below the gum line, which will help to protect your gums from developing gingivitis, a common precursor to gum disease.
For an appointment to come to our Newport Beach CA dental office for either a dental exam or dental cleaning, or both, simply contact our office.
