Catch Oral Issues Early

Dental Cleanings, Exams & X-Rays

The heart of preventative dentistry is your routine cleaning and oral exam. Visiting every six months is the best way to ensure that we can catch potential oral health issues, such as cavities and gingivitis, early.

Regular cleanings help remove plaque and tartar to keep your smile healthy. We may also recommend x-rays every year or two so we can catch any issues that may be hiding below your teeth and gums. Routine appointments give you peace of mind and keep your smile looking and feeling its best.

Fluoride Treatments

 Fluoride treatments are a great way to fight back against tooth decay. The early stages of tooth decay weakens and “demineralizes” your enamel. These weakened areas of your teeth are also known as “soft spots”. When left untreated, soft spots will always progress into cavities. 

Fluoride treatments are used to encourage remineralization in your tooth. Fluoride attracts minerals like calcium and phosphate to your tooth enamel, strengthening it and reversing the effects of minor decay. This non-invasive treatment takes only a few minutes at Yunbelievable Smiles and can be administered as part of your routine teeth cleaning.

Prevent Gum Disease

Periodontal Care

Proper daily oral hygiene is the key to preventing gum disease. If you do not brush and floss properly, you could develop gingivitis (the first stage of gum disease). Proper periodontal care from a dentist like Dr. Yun is essential for preserving your smile and preventing gingivitis from progressing into an irreversible case of gum disease. If you notice blood when you brush and floss, puffy or inflamed gums, or a receding gum line, these are signs of periodontal disease. Call today to schedule an appointment for periodontal care!

The Importance of Preventive dental Visits

Preventive care is important because it protects your smile, ensures optimal health, and saves you both time and money in the long run. Seeing a dentist every six months helps you avoid issues like gum disease, cavities, infected teeth and more. Even if you don’t have a toothache or notice any signs of dental damage, we are trained to recognize oral health issues as early as possible and recommend proper treatment to resolve them quickly.

Preventive care gives you valuable peace of mind. When you leave our office, you’ll know that your smile is healthy and you’ll know exactly what you need to do to keep it that way.
