Maintaining Healthy Gums

Taking care of your oral health includes focusing on your gums as well as your teeth. Your gingival tissues provide critical protection against oral bacteria and provide the connective link between your teeth and jaw. While reversible in its first stage, gingivitis, an infection of your gums becomes permanent once it reaches your jawbone. For this reason,  maintaining their health and preventing infection should be a top priority for you and your dentist. Staying on top of your brushing and flossing routine helps prevent the buildup of plaque and tartar that can threaten your gum health in addition to causing cavities.

At your Temecula, CA dental practice, we help you maintain healthy gums with regular cleanings and examinations. Every time you visit our office, we will check your gums for infection and remove bacterial deposits that cause disease. If we do discover periodontal disease, we can place you on a maintenance therapy schedule to prevent it from advancing. Rigorously keeping up with your maintenance can help prevent the consequences of gum disease, such as tooth loss, so make sure to attend each appointment!


Orthodontic Correction For Your Smile

When considering treatment to correct the spacing of your teeth, you should explore each available solution for a straighter smile. Understanding the differences between each corrective solution can help you make the decision more quickly to receive the benefits you deserve. As each smile is unique, you may prefer a certain orthodontic treatment over another because of your specific spacing condition. For example, clear aligners allow you to easily remove them for performing your oral hygiene routine. On the other hand, traditional braces offer the tension necessary to address severe malocclusion.

At your Corona, CA dentist’s office, we provide an array of products for bringing your smile into position. When you visit with a member of our team, we can perform a full evaluation of your spacing problems and discuss which therapies can properly correct them. We look forward to helping you create a straighter smile you can be proud of!


Improving The Shade Of Your Teeth

Are you wondering what options are available to help improve the shade of your teeth? When blemishes and stains affect the enjoyment of your smile, you can become quite disappointed. This individual change in appearance can give a more aged look that does not match your biological years. This common problem occurs when the food and drinks you love leave behind residue that builds on the surface of your enamel. If you use tobacco products, you are more likely to develop teeth staining as well, so take that into consideration. For a professional dental discoloration solution, seek a professional teeth whitening treatment to tackle unsightly stains and return a healthy look!

At your Moreno Valley, CA dental practice, we know how important a bright smile can be to your self-confidence. This is why we offer custom bleaching treatments to break up stains in your teeth and return the original white appearance of your enamel. By visiting us for a whitening session, you can return pride to your grin once again!


Improving Your Child’s Oral Health

When children learn healthy oral hygiene habits at an early age, you set them up for a lifetime of smile care. By providing a comfortable atmosphere for receiving their first cleanings and examinations, visiting the dentist becomes a normal part of their yearly routine. When your child receives their first baby tooth, or by their first birthday, we suggest bringing them in for a casual introduction to meet their dentist.

At your Riverside, CA, dental practice, we help improve children’s smiles with a focus on children’s dentistry. Just like their parents, kids need regular care to help prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and other potential oral harm. Their semiannual visits present a valuable opportunity to review and teach the skills they need to take care of their mouths on their own at home.


Practices To Help Treat Tooth Decay

Boy laughing outsideDo you stay on top of regular trips to your dentist? If it has been a while since your last visit, we suggest visiting on a biannual basis to receive a general checkup. At each appointment, we clean your teeth and perform a thorough examination to protect your smile from tooth decay, gum disease, and other common concerns. We have the tools to remove bacterial formations that you cannot treat on your own at home with regular brushing and flossing. By removing these deposits, we attack decay at its source to prevent cavities, loss of enamel, and infections that result from the weakening of the protective layer of your tooth.

At your Riverside, CA dental practice, we provide routine cleanings to prevent and detect cavities and help you maintain a healthy smile. By visiting us regularly, you know you are in good hands with a professional eye on your oral care. Your six-month examination can catch any new developments in the health of your teeth before they advance. This can lead to receiving appropriate care before a disease process gets out of hand.


Relieving Your Tooth Infection

Man with toothache at computerConstant pain in one of your teeth is not a symptom you should ignore or take lightly. When you have consistent discomfort in your tooth that will not go away on its own, this can indicate an infection of the pulp. If you do not seek timely care, your pain may increase as the infection spreads and risks entering the rest of your body. When a tooth becomes infected, it is usually the result of oral bacteria entering an exposed part of the tooth’s surface. Whether from a cavity, trauma, or physical wear and tear, this damage to your tooth should be seen and treated by your dentist as well.

At your Temecula, CA dental practice, we recommend seeking treatment right away when you experience a painful infection. We can provide a root canal therapy to remove the source of your pain and prevent the infection from spreading. Because a root canal permanently alters the structure of your tooth, we will plan a restoration to seal your tooth and restore its natural beauty! (more…)

Promoting Your Gum Health

Your gums can be just as important as they create a seal between your jaw and teeth to secure your smile in place. Because this tissue prevents oral bacteria from entering your jaw and causing an infection, preventing the gums from becoming infected or receding themselves should be a top priority for oral health. When you follow a regular hygienic routine that includes brushing and flossing, you remove bacterial deposits that can infect your gums and affect the stability of your entire smile. To support your daily cleaning sessions, semiannual visits to the dentist inspect the results of your daily brushing. We can remove bacterial material that you cannot handle on your own at home and detect when any gum infection occurs. When caught in its first stage, gum disease is reversible, so make sure to attend each of your general cleanings.

At your Corona, CA dentist’s office, we promote healthy gums by stressing the importance of regular cleaning and examinations. At each appointment, we remove plaque and tartar deposits that cause gum disease and inspect the health of your gingival tissues. When we detect an infection, we can place you on periodontal maintenance therapy to reduce inflammation and prevent the disease from expanding. (more…)

The Benefits Of Straighter Teeth

If you have been thinking about seeking orthodontic correction for the position of your teeth, there are multiple options available from your local dentist. Knowing the benefits of each corrective appliance can help you more easily make the decision and receive the care you desire. What you will find is that while all solutions seek the goal of straighter teeth, your experience during treatment can vary with each treatment. A clear aligner product can be taken off intermittently to easily clean your teeth, while a more traditional braces treatment can offer additional tension to bring your teeth into position.

At your Moreno Valley, CA dental practice, we offer modern orthodontic products to help you correct problems with the spacing of your teeth. At Dental Associates of Moreno Valley, we inspect your degree of malocclusion to help you decide which therapy works best. With treatment from Invisalign as well as bracket-and-wire metal braces, we hope to put a smile on your face!

Take a look a pictures of yourself from recent years and you may notice a much brighter look on your teeth. This is because particles in the everyday foods and drinks we love can slowly accumulate in the surface of your enamel.
