At Finesse Dental Care, we emphasize a preventive approach to helping you and your family enjoy a lifetime of excellent oral health. We recommend visiting our Westlake Village dental office twice a year, for periodic teeth cleanings and examinations. With comprehensive preventive care, we can halt the onset and progress of adverse conditions to keep your smile healthy and beautiful.
Preventive care begins at home, with a daily oral hygiene routine of brushing and flossing, as well as limiting your intake of sugary foods and beverages. These steps help protect your teeth against the detrimental effects of plaque, which is a sticky film that gathers continuously in your mouth, harboring harmful bacteria that feed on sugar. While brushing and flossing are of the utmost importance, plaque can hide out in crevices of your mouth that can only be reached with a professional teeth cleaning. During your teeth cleaning, we will also guide you on better techniques you can use at home to clean and care for your teeth. Education is a vital preventive tool, especially for our pediatric patients, who are establishing the foundation for their lifelong commitment to oral hygiene. Although cavities can occur at any age, due to lifestyle and dietary habits, children are especially susceptible. For our pediatric patients, we offer dental sealants and fluoride treatments, which provide extra protection against tooth decay in children. All patients who come to our Westlake Village dental office receive a comprehensive examination of their teeth, gums and the supporting bone structure, with the use of advanced digital radiography, as needed. Our goal is to diagnose problems such as tooth decay and gum disease from their outset, which allows for the most straightforward and effective course of care.
When you can depend on our friendly, state-of-the-art Westlake Village dental office, it’s easy and stress-free to keep up with preventive checkups for the whole family. At Finesse Dental Care, your family’s oral health is our top priority. To learn more or to schedule a checkup, give us a call today.
