Dental Checkup - Cleanings and Exams
General Dentistry in Toluca Lake and Hollywood
General dentistry procedures such as dental cleanings, exams, and x-rays are vital to a routine which aims at achieving excellent oral hygiene. Simply put, brushing and flossing alone will not keep you from dental problems, especially with the amount of processed foods we consume that contain controversial ingredients. The American Dental Association (ADA)
recommends that you visit your dentist for a dental checkup including a dental cleaning and examination at least twice a year.
Why Visit a Dentist for a Dental Checkup?
The Finishing Touch
Dentists are able to clean away plaque buildup and hardened tartar (calculus)
that is unable to be properly removed at home. Dentists and hygienists use special instruments to remove the build up. It’s best to let a professional handle the situation in removing this nasty buildup that is responsible for a host of problems including gum disease and tooth decay.
Behind The Scenes
Dental visits provide the dentist an opportunity to fully examine your mouth and review your current routine - giving tips, tricks or recommendations that you may be able to benefit from. Dental examinations combined with x-rays allow Dr. Kashani to view the deeper parts of your teeth and gums for early detection and an overall better prognosis if any abnormalities are found.
Maintain Your Beautiful Smile
This relates to excellent oral hygiene, but regular dental cleanings and exams keep your smile healthy by promoting an environment that is free from diseases (i.e. periodontal disease)
. Dr. Kashani would be happy to discuss any personal needs regarding your mouth during a regular dental cleaning. We offer teeth whitening services that are sure to make your smile a few shades whiter.
