At Bella Terra Dentistry, we focus on keeping your teeth cavity free from the start and detecting oral health conditions as immediately as possible, when treatment is usually most effective. Visiting your Huntington Beach dental office for biannual checkups, which include a comprehensive examination and teeth cleaning, are vital to your long-term oral health. We use advanced approaches to early detection and intervention, preventing or treating tooth decay and gum disease before they develop into more serious problems.
Preventing the onset and progress of dental disease requires routine visits to your Huntington Beach dental office. During your checkup, your dentist will thoroughly examine your teeth and their supporting structures to accurately diagnose and determine the best course of treatment for cavities, periodontal, and other oral health conditions. Early intervention allows for the most straightforward treatment with the best possible outcome. Your dentist will also perform a thorough, professional teeth cleaning, removing plaque and tartar from the surfaces of your teeth. Plaque is a sticky film that continuously accumulates in the mouth, harboring bacteria that feed on sugar. The bacteria in plaque produce acids that erode the enamel of the teeth and cause cavities. Plaque can also accumulate below the gum line to cause gum disease. Protecting your teeth against the detrimental effects of plaque requires a daily commitment to brushing and flossing. During your teeth cleaning, your dentist advises on better techniques for caring for your teeth at home. We strive to make dental checkups informative and engaging, especially for our youngest patients, who are just beginning their journey to maintain a lifetime of healthy, beautiful smiles. For pediatric patients, we also provide extra protection against cavities with dental sealants and fluoride treatments.
Making comprehensive, preventive care available to patients of all ages is our number one goal here at Bella Terra Dentistry. The highly skilled dentists and caring, professional staff at your Huntington Beach dental office make dental care a stress-free, positive experience. To learn more, give us a call today.
