Comprehensive exams at Alhambra Dental Plaza
Dr. Do ensures we schedule enough time for your appointment to conduct a thorough initial exam, so all facets of your oral health are considered. We check for lesions and oral cancer which can literally save patients’ lives. If headaches or jaw pain are experienced, the temporomandibular joint is viewed for proper alignment.
Dr. Do also takes digital x-rays for a precise image of teeth and gums. Previous dental restorations are reviewed to see if they are still protecting teeth. Any bacterial irritation of the gums, known as gingivitis, is identified to prevent a more serious gum disease, periodontitis, from forming. Additionally, Dr. Do protects teeth with fluoride rinse, which has minerals that maintain the strength of teeth.
Dental Hygiene Provided in Sacramento
A beautiful smile begins at home with twice daily brushing and flossing; however, a professional cleaning is also imperative to ensure the health of teeth and gums. At the Alhambra Dental Plaza, a thorough teeth cleaning prevents minor dental issues from becoming major complications.
A dental hygienist uses a special tool to scale plaque off teeth. Plaque is an acidic substance created by bacteria that leads to tooth decay. If plaque is untreated, it can grow above the gum line and form a more stubborn substance called tartar. When tartar attaches to the tooth root, a delicate process of scaling and root planning is necessary. If tartar is not removed, it can impact the root of a tooth, and lead to tooth loss.
