At Tooth Love, nothing inspires us more than seeing our patients wear healthy smiles. However, we know that no healthy smile comes without doing something about it. We usually encourage our patients to practice optimal at-home oral care. But that is never enough. Our Irvine, California dental office offers routine dental exams and professional cleanings to reinforce the excellent job you do at home.
Dr. Joanna Jefferson will never tire of telling patients to brush twice a day and floss daily. These dental practices play a critical role in eliminating the most harmful bacteria in your mouth. Unfortunately, at-home oral care doesn’t reach all the nooks and crannies of your mouth. It’s in these hidden places plaque starts building up, inviting the dreaded gum disease in your mouth.
Even if your at-home hygiene techniques would reach every corner of your mouth, it’s virtually impossible to eliminate all plaque in your mouth. When plaque lingers for long in your mouth, it triggers processes that cause gum inflammation that can lead to eventual tooth loss.
Dental cleanings access hard-to-reach surfaces and effectively eliminate stubborn tartar build-up. We also carry out an in-depth dental exam when we attend to your dental cleaning. The procedure involves the following:
While some patients may require more dental checkups, ensure you see a dentist at least twice a year. They may appear cliché, but dental cleanings alongside dental exams can save you costly restorative treatments along the way.
