Great dental care at River Dentistry does not only keep your teeth healthy and strong but it also keeps you feeling and looking your best.
Maintaining oral health and fighting gum infections is easy. It just takes a little time each day and some professional help from your friends at River Dentistry – leading experts in deep dental cleaning in Los Angeles. Gum disease is an infection in your mouth, which can reach your bloodstream and some patients. For example, pregnant women may have higher risk of developing accelerated gum disease due to hormonal changes. Unfortunately the health ramifications of gum disease and not having regular dental oral exams and dental teeth cleaning can be quite serious and may be linked to heart disease, stroke, and diabetes.
During the initial dental oral exam at River Dentistry dental office, a dentist will evaluate health/condition of your teeth and gums as well as your regular oral hygiene procedures. If during the dental examination the dentist finds signs of gingivitis (the early stage of gum disease) or periodontitis (more severe pocketing around the roots of teeth associated with bone loss and loss of attachment), he or she will use periodontal probing to determine the extent of your gum disease.
Then we will administer a rejuvenating deep dental cleaning, scaling, and root planning session. We will use a topical anesthetic to numb your gums for 20 to 30 minutes. We will go below the gum line to remove any plaque, tartar, and bacteria – thus allowing your gums and bone to heal.
However, as beneficial as River Dentistry office visits and dental cleaning in Downtown Los Angeles are for your dental health, everyday home care is also critical! Keep your smile bright and beautiful between visits.
