Whether your children will be attending classes online or in-person, we suggest getting ready for the upcoming school year by scheduling a routine checkup for each member of your family. Your Rancho Cucamonga, CA, dentist uses exams to help monitor smiles and address serious concerns in the earliest possible stages.
The Importance of a Routine Visit
Often, people underestimate the importance of a routine exam and cleaning, and may put them off or assume brushing and flossing at home is enough. However, a checkup is a chance for our team to keep a close eye on your smile, watching for any changes that could indicate the onset of a serious oral health issue. We then address problems like tooth decay and gingivitis before you experience uncomfortable symptoms, and before complications arise that could impact the health and stability of your teeth. These visits also help kids better understand the importance of dentistry, instilling good habits and reducing the risk of dental anxiety.
The Technology We Use
To obtain a picture of oral health and to make a diagnosis with accuracy and precision, we rely on more than just a normal visual exam. Our team also employs advanced technologies. For example, with a digital x-ray, we use 80% less radiation, and the images are offered chairside in greater detail, without the need to develop them in harsh chemicals. The process of taking the images is also more comfortably, replacing bitewings with a smaller sensor.
We also use CT scans to create 3D images of your smile to plan treatment, and intraoral cameras to gather detailed images that help us not only examine your smile, but design restorations and oral appliances.
What We Look For, and How We Treat It
If we uncover warning signs of a cavity, we can treat the issue with a lifelike filling. If we find an infection, then we may suggest a root canal treatment. We have preventive solutions and advanced laser technology to help address gingivitis and manage gum disease too. We can create oral appliances to correct the strain response for TMJ disorder and bruxism (chronic teeth grinding) as well. If you have any questions about how we diagnose and treat issues with your smile, or if you would like to schedule your next checkup, then contact our team today.
