Common Procedures, Questions & More

Why Is Preventive Care So Important?

Preventive care, like bi-annual teeth cleanings and oral exams, allows you to stay on top of your oral health and take better care of your teeth at home. We can identify potential areas of concern, and provide you with advice on maintaining a higher level of oral care.

Proper preventive care can also save you time and money. Along with cleanings and exams, additional preventive measures like fluoride treatments and dental sealants can help Whittier Palm Dental prevent cavities, gum disease, and other more costly dental issues.

What Can I Expect During A Teeth Cleaning?

First, your hygienist will perform a brief oral exam to check on your overall oral health. X-rays may be taken if you’re a first-time visitor. After your first visit, they’re usually only needed every 2-3 years. Your hygienist will then remove plaque and tartar from your teeth with a dental scaler. Next, your teeth will be buffed and polished with dental toothpaste, and your hygienist will floss your teeth to remove any remaining debris. 

Once your teeth have been cleaned, Dr. Winslow will examine your mouth and your x-rays, and look for any signs of common oral health issues, like gum disease and gingivitis, and discuss your oral health with you.

What Are Fluoride Treatments?

Fluoride treatments are an optional treatment applied after a teeth cleaning. A layer of fluoride-rich paste or gel will be applied to your teeth, left to sit for a few minutes, and then rinsed away. Fluoride helps remineralize and strengthen your teeth, reversing the effects of minor decay.

What Are Dental Sealants?

Dental sealants create a barrier between the enamel of your teeth and the oral bacteria, plaque, and acid that leads to decay. They’re made of a liquid dental resin, which is applied directly to the chewing surfaces of your molars. Sealants are typically applied to the molars because of the deep crevices of the rear teeth and because these teeth are harder to clean. After the resin is applied, it’s hardened using a UV light. When properly applied, this barrier can prevent cavities for up to 10 years.

Do I Need Periodontal Care?

Periodontal care, such as deep cleaning (scaling and root planing) is used to reverse minor-to-moderate gingivitis and gum disease. If your gums bleed easily and you’re noticing symptoms like halitosis (bad breath), swelling and discoloration of your gums, or gum recession (teeth look longer as the gums rise), you may need periodontal care. Come in for a consultation right away.

What Is An Oral Cancer Screening?

We offer oral cancer screenings as part of our routine oral exams. Dr. Winslow will look for signs of oral cancer, such as discolored tissue, lesions and irregularities in your mouth, ensuring that your mouth is healthy and free of any potential concerns.
