At Contemporary Dental, we focus on a preventive approach to helping you and every member of your family maintain healthy, beautiful smiles. With biannual visits to our San Mateo dental office, we can help to keep your teeth healthy from the start. Our comprehensive preventive program includes checkup exams, professional teeth cleanings, and care that is designed to stop the onset and progress of adverse oral health conditions.
Preventive care begins at home, with a daily routine of brushing and flossing, and limiting your intake of sugary foods and drinks. These steps protect your teeth against the detrimental effects of plaque, a sticky film that gathers continuously in your mouth, harboring harmful bacteria. Plaque can hide out in crevices of your mouth that can only be reached with a professional teeth cleaning. During your teeth cleaning at our San Mateo dental office, we’ll thoroughly remove any residual plaque, tartar and debris you may have missed while brushing and will guide you on better techniques for maintaining an optimal oral hygiene regimen. For our youngest patients, we make visits informative and engaging, helping your child to establish a strong foundation for a lifetime of healthy habits. We can also reduce your child’s risk of tooth decay with dental sealants and fluoride treatments. A preventive visit also includes a comprehensive examination of the teeth, gums and their supporting bone structure, with the use of digital radiography, as needed. Our goal is to detect oral health problems such as tooth decay and gum disease in their earliest stages, which allows us to provide the most straightforward, gentle and effective course of treatment.
Periodic visits to our friendly, state-of-the-art San Mateo dental office are vital to your family’s oral and overall health. At Contemporary Dental, we provide the most advanced preventive care for you and your loved ones. To schedule a checkup, give us a call today.
