At Healthy Teeth Family Dentistry, we place an emphasis on preventive care, to help you preserve your teeth and enjoy a lifetime of excellent oral health. Our Glendale dentist and compassionate professional staff make checkup visits informative, engaging experiences for you and your family. By providing periodic teeth cleanings, examinations and oral cancer screenings, we can help halt the onset and progress of conditions that may adversely affect your oral health.
Tooth decay and gum disease are both caused by plaque. This sticky film gathers continuously in your mouth, harboring harmful bacteria that feed on sugar. Not only do these bacteria produce acids, causing cavities to develop but also when plaque gathers below the gum line, it infects the tissues supporting the teeth to cause periodontal disease. If you brush and floss on a daily basis as well as visit our office for periodic exams and professional teeth cleanings, we can help protect your teeth against the detrimental effects of plaque. During a professional teeth cleaning, we thoroughly remove any plaque buildup, tartar and debris from the most difficult to reach areas between your teeth and gums. Our Glendale dentist also review your oral hygiene routine to guide you on better practices. For pediatric patients, we provide the educational tools needed to establish the foundation for a lifetime of cavity-free smiles, as well as offer dental sealants and periodic fluoride treatments, which provide an added layer of protection against tooth decay. For patients of all ages, we’ll provide a thorough examination, assisted by the use of advanced digital radiography, as needed. Periodic examinations allow us to diagnose tooth decay, gum disease and other oral health problems from their outset, when they are typically the easiest to treat.
With the personalized, gentle care of our Glendale dentist, it’s easy and stress-free to keep up with your family’s dental checkups. At Healthy Teeth Family Dentistry, we aim to keep your teeth healthy from the start. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, call today.
