Did you know that tooth decay as well as gum disease are both caused by a sticky film called plaque, which gathers continuously in your mouth? Not only do the bacteria in plaque produce acids that eat away at tooth enamel, causing cavities to form; when plaque accumulates below the gum line, it can infect and inflame the soft tissues and bone structure supporting the teeth, leading to periodontal disease. While brushing, flossing and limiting your intake of sugary foods and beverages are steps you can take each day to protect your teeth against the detrimental effects of plaque, to complement your daily oral hygiene regimen, it is also important to visit our La Mesa best dentist for periodic teeth cleanings. During your professional teeth cleaning, we remove any plaque buildup your toothbrush may have missed. We also take the opportunity to teach you techniques you can use at home to better clean and care for you teeth. For our pediatric patients, we provide the educational tools needed to establish a strong foundation for a lifetime of healthy habits. We can also provide dental sealants and fluoride treatments, to further reduce your child’s risk of tooth decay. As part of a checkup visit for patients of all ages, our dentist will thoroughly examine the teeth, gums and their supporting bone structure, with the use of advanced digital radiography, as needed. Our goal is to prevent dental disease and to diagnose adverse conditions from the outset, which allows for the most gentle, precise and effective course of treatment.
At Matosian Dental, our caring team of professionals makes every checkup an informative and engaging experience for you and your family.
