Why is Oral Hygiene Important?

Oral hygiene helps remove harmful bacteria that build up over time. This bacteria can become plaque that leads to prevalent problems like periodontal disease and gingivitis, a mild form of gum disease. Thus, taking good care of your oral hygiene helps prevent infection, inflammation, and decay.

Why is a Dental Exam Important?

A thorough dental exam lets you reflect on your dental care techniques and provides useful insights for future care to protect you from complications. Hence, dental exams should be taken every six months. Our team in San Jose helps patients tailor dental consultations based on different factors for every patient. These can include smoking, the number of cavities, or any oral history resulting in tooth decay or gum disease.

Plaque can build up both above and below the gum line, resulting in dire periodontal consequences. Even if you follow a proper oral health routine, there are chances that plaque can build up; thus, professional teeth cleaning can help remove underlying bacteria, debris, and deposits from gum pockets and stop harmful periodontal problems.

Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are an effective procedure that prevents decay on the biting surface of your chewing teeth. It involves a thin layer of a tooth-colored acrylic coating applied on the tooth’s surface.

Thus, the deep grooves are effectively sealed. They act as a barrier between the enamel and help evade any plaque that might build up below or above the teeth.

It helps to protect parts of your teeth like groves and depressions that brushing or flossing might not reach.

The procedure is very easily executed and only takes a few minutes to seal every tooth. Dental sealants are also very long-lasting. Given proper care, they can last up to years with a normal chewing habit.
