Professional teeth cleaning and quality dental care in Glendale
Everyone knows that you need to floss and brush your teeth every day to prevent cavities, but that’s only one part of prevention. If you have chronic bad breath, or your teeth feel sticky or slimy when your tongue rubs against them, it’s time to book an appointment with the dentist. Bright Smiles Dental Studio offers teeth cleaning services and dental care for the whole family for patients in the Glendale area.
Oral health affects the whole body
Cavities form when bacteria feed on sugars and starches in your mouth. They can also infect your gums, causing bleeding and inflammation, which can cause stress to your immune system. Unfortunately, these bacteria can also make their way into your bloodstream, relaxing toxins that can affect your heart and brain health. Regular brushing and flossing can disrupt plaque and reduce the amount of pathogenic bacteria in your mouth.
Even with the diligent home care, bacteria can find their way under your gum line or take cover under tartar. A professional dentist has the tools and education to gently remove plaque and tartar build-up and clean debris from hard-to-reach crevices in your mouth.
Find problems as they develop
During your professional cleaning, we will also evaluate the state of your mouth. X-rays can help Dr. Garcia spot cavities as they start to form and allow him to check your root and bone health. Our staff can also check the pocket depth of your gums and look for signs of periodontal disease and gingivitis before it destroys the soft tissues in your mouth and spreads.
These screenings allow Dr. Garcia to nip problems in the bud before they require extreme measures, such as root canal therapy or tooth extraction. To protect your oral health, you need regular dental care and routine teeth cleaning at least twice a year to keep your smile bright, healthy, and happy for years to come. It will save you time and money in the long run, as well as pain and discomfort. Contact our office today at (818) 290-8788 to schedule an appointment.
