Your teeth are meant to last a lifetime. Are you doing your part to keep your smile healthy and strong? Professional dental cleanings are a part of your general dental care and are a critical component of your dental health. In fact, by keeping your mouth in top condition, we can help you avoid certain health complications with the rest of your body.
For most patients, routine dental cleanings and checkups should be scheduled every six months. This allows us to detect problems such as decay and gum disease at their earliest, most treatable stage. Thousand Oaks Dentistry proudly offers routine dental visits for all ages, from toddlers to grandparents and everyone in between. We can even handle your family’s dental care needs in one visit, so ask us about family block scheduling.
At Thousand Oaks Dentistry, we never cut corners when it comes to your preventive dental visit. One of our skilled dentists will perform a comprehensive exam to look at all areas of your mouth, including your teeth, jaw, gums and other soft tissues. We measure the height and condition of your gums as well as take x-rays when needed. Our goal is to pinpoint and treat dental issues before they cause pain and other threats to your smile and body. For example, untreated gum disease can cause tooth loss and contribute to overall health conditions such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes and premature birth.
Your routine dental exam will also include an oral cancer screening. This is a painless and quick process that comes at no extra charge. Before you leave, your smile will be professionally cleaned by one of our hygienists. This allows us to remove stubborn stains as well as harmful plaque that has accumulated within your smile. You can expect to walk away from your routine visit with a more confident smile.
If your exam revealed a concern within your dental health, you can trust that our dental team is qualified to handle it. We offer a full menu of services in general, restorative and cosmetic dentistry. Best of all, we perform procedures with utmost attention to your comfort and safety.
