Preventative Dentistry El Segundo and Carson
Dental Cleaning (Periodontal Therapy If Necessary)
Although twice-daily brushings and regular flossing are excellent for maintenance between office visits, regular examinations and cleanings are absolute necessities if you are to maintain a healthy mouth. Our staff will help you keep your teeth and gums strong and disease-free.
Unfortunately, periodontal (gum) disease can lead to more than just an unsightly smile; it can cause loss of teeth and, eventually, if left untreated, serious health problems. Called gingivitis in its early stages, periodontal disease is caused by excessive toxic bacteria (found in plaque) that attack your mouth’s soft tissues. Early warning signs of the disease include red, swollen, bleeding gums. If caught early, we can help you reverse the damage or if detected late, we can use one of many effective cosmetic dentistry procedures to restore your mouth to a healthy, beautiful state. For more information, please contact our office today.
In order to prevent tooth decay – which will lead to cavities – we recommend treating your teeth with fluoride. Our staff will be happy to educate you on the most beneficial methods to apply this practice.
Oral Hygiene Instruction
Did you know that proper oral hygiene can also protect the health of your heart? We do. That is why we at Avalon Dental Care are more than happy to guide you through the most successful methods to keep your mouth clean, including how to brush, floss and much more.
Pit and Fissure Sealants
If cavities and tooth decay have already occurred in your teeth, we will apply pit and fissure sealants to avoid the damage from spreading any further. The sealants are comprised of plastic and are applied to one or more teeth as needed.
