Regular dental checkups and cleanings are essential for maintaining optimal oral health.

We prioritize preventive dentistry, which includes routine checkups and professional cleanings, to help you achieve and maintain a healthy, beautiful smile.

The Importance of Dental Checkups

Dental checkups are crucial for detecting and preventing various oral health issues. During your checkup, our doctors will thoroughly examine your teeth, gums, and overall oral health. This examination may include:

  • Visual inspection: Checking for signs of cavities, gum disease, or other abnormalities
  • X-rays: Taking radiographs to identify hidden dental problems, such as decay between teeth or impacted wisdom teeth
  • Oral cancer screening: Examining your mouth, throat, and surrounding tissues for any signs of oral cancer

Regular checkups allow Dr. Maryam Jahani, Dr. Preethi Bangalore, and Dr. Ivan Lee to identify and address any potential issues early on, preventing them from developing into more serious problems.

Professional Dental Cleanings

Even with diligent brushing and flossing at home, plaque and tartar can accumulate on your teeth over time. Professional dental cleanings, performed by our skilled dental hygienists, are essential for removing these harmful deposits and maintaining the health of your teeth and gums.

During your cleaning, our hygienist will:

  • Remove plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth and along the gum line
  • Polish your teeth to remove surface stains and achieve a brighter smile
  • Provide personalized oral hygiene instructions to help you maintain optimal oral health at home

Frequency of Dental Checkups and Cleanings

The American Dental Association recommends that most individuals visit their dentist for a checkup and cleaning every six months. However, some patients may require more frequent visits, depending on their specific oral health needs.

Dr. Maryam Jahani, Dr. Preethi Bangalore, and Dr. Ivan Lee will work with you to determine the optimal frequency of your dental checkups and cleanings based on factors such as:

  • Your overall oral health
  • Your risk of developing cavities or gum disease
  • Your age and medical history
