Oral hygiene and teeth cleanings are a critical part of maintaining your dental health. While proper at-home care, brushing, and flossing help you avoid common dental issues, we use specialized tools during professional cleanings to ensure that every hard-to-reach surface of your teeth is free of bacteria and plaque. Regular visits will ensure that your mouth is a healthy environment for your teeth and gums, and will prevent issues like gum disease, decay, and cavities.
We offer oral cancer screenings as part of every routine exam at Confident Smiles & Implants. During your preventive visit, one of our dentists will use an intraoral camera to examine your gums and soft tissue, keeping an eye out for any potential signs of cancer like lumps, bumps, discolored tissue, and other abnormalities. Our regular oral cancer screenings will give you peace of mind that your smile is strong and healthy.
Gum disease is the leading cause of premature tooth loss, and nearly 50% of American adults suffer from this condition. However, many patients don’t know that they have gum disease because the beginning stages only have minor symptoms. With periodontal care from Confident Smiles & Implants, we will remove bacteria from underneath your gums and between your teeth to help you halt gum disease and avoid it altogether.
TMJ/TMD can lead to premature wear and tear of your teeth and negatively affect the health and aesthetics of your smile. We are trained to recognize the signs of teeth grinding, and we offer custom-fitted night guards to protect your smile.
According to the American Dental Association, patients should see a dentist for an exam and cleaning twice per year.
However, patients with certain dental issues like periodontal disease should visit more often to ensure that their condition is managed by a dental expert. Seeing Dr. Luis and Dr. Tori every six months is the best way to keep your smile healthy and bright. Coming back regularly helps us track your oral health, catch any potential issues early, and ensure that your smile always looks and feels its best.
