The best way to maintain healthy teeth and gums is to stick to a regular program of dental hygiene. Otherwise bad breath, tooth decay, tooth loss and gum disease are inevitable. Having a confident smile and knowing that one’s breath is not offensive is essential in daily interactions with family and coworkers.
Unfortunately professional dental care is sometime postponed because of past unpleasant dental experiences or financial difficulties. This results in the relentless progress of tooth decay which will need to be handled sooner or later.
Nothing beats a clean, fresh smile
Dr. Matian is fully aware that some of his patients have had poor experiences when having their teeth cleaned in the past. In his state-of-the-art dental offices, patient care and comfort is at the forefront of all treatment protocols. Providing among the best teeth cleaning Encino residents can obtain is one of the prime goals for Bio Dental. Dr. Matian knows that patients will not readily come in for regular teeth cleaning if the experience is painful and unpleasant.
Why have professional teeth cleaning?
Getting a professional dental cleaning has six main benefits:
- Stops tooth loss
- Prevents cavities
- Prevents gum disease
- Brightens the teeth
- Protects general health
- Saves money
Regular maintenance, including a daily regimen of brushing and flossing, will insure your teeth remain healthy which has an effect on overall health. Even the most dedicated home care cannot reach some of the areas that plaque and tartar collect. Professional equipment combined with a skilled practitioner ensures that all plaque and tartar is removed and that the teeth are inspected for undetected problems. At Bio Dental the standard is to provide among the best teeth cleaning Los Angeles has available using cutting edge equipment combined with a very gentle touch.
Preventing dental deterioration
One of the main benefits of having the teeth regularly examined by a dentist is that early problems can be identified and easily treated. A small cavity is much easier to repair that a large one. As well, early stages of gum disease, called gingivitis, is much easier to correct than periodontal disease which is far more serious.
For those who have put off dental visits or cleanings, the benefit remains the same in ratio to the condition of the teeth. It is never too late to begin a program of dental care. For patients with more advanced dental issues, Dr. Matian has a wide variety of treatments he can provide to arrest the progress or reverse the effects of deferred maintenance. Dental issues such as cavities and gum disease are irreversible without intervention.
Teeth cleaning is cost effective
It is far less expensive to maintain the teeth than it is to repair them. At Bio Dental, Dr. Matian offers a full array of dental services to provide his patients with what they need for healthy beautiful teeth. His modern dental practice can restore function and beauty to the most neglected teeth which is good news. Unfortunately, many of today’s dental miracles come at a high price, so maintenance is the best method of avoiding expensive dental work.
Social interactions are smoother with a bright inviting smile
Cosmetically, a bright clean smile is very inviting and encourages conversation. Unfortunately we have all be cornered at a party or business gathering by someone with poor dental hygiene who is completely unaware of the disagreeable aspect of his or her teeth.
Teeth can become stained by coffee, wine and other foods. Regular professional cleaning can prevent these stains from becoming permanent, keeping the smile bright and youthful.
The procedure for teeth cleaning at our Encino office
Patients are usually very comfortable during their cleanings. State of the art equipment has made the earlier forms of chiseling and scraping obsolete. Most of the work is done by gentle ultra sound waves which break up tartar and remove plaque. The sound waves are directed at the teeth by a small wand like device. Periodically, a mist of water washes the teeth to remove the debris.
Once the large pieces are removed, a small tool is used to remove any particles that remain. After the teeth are cleaned, Dr. Matian may conduct a survey of your gums if he suspects any periodontal disease. During the survey, he uses a small instrument to check the depth of any pockets that have formed. This will then enable him to develop a treatment plan to prevent further deterioration.
The final touch is to polish the teeth using special mildly abrasive toothpaste. This has a twofold purpose; first the teeth look clean and shiny and feel very smooth. Second the smoothed surface of the teeth makes it more difficult for plaque and tartar to stick to the teeth.
Pain free teeth cleaning in Encino
As patients come in for regular bi-annual teeth cleaning the process gets faster and patients report looking forward to the cleaning procedure. This is because the gums desensitize and regular cleaning allows the fluoride in toothpaste reach the root area which decreases tooth sensitivity. For patients with very sensitive gums, Dr. Matian can apply a topical numbing gel. During teeth cleaning, patients are monitored to ensure they are comfortable. At any time, patients can stop the process if they need to take a break for any reason.
Don’t let fear or financial concerns interfere with a program of good dental hygiene. Teeth cleaning in our Encino office is fast and affordable.
