Preventative Dental Care in Brentwood, CA
At Platinum Smiles Family Dentistry, we believe great dental health starts with solid preventative habits and a regular schedule for preventative care at our office. We are passionate about keeping our patients healthy and avoiding dental problems, when possible.
In addition to your regular home care of brushing and flossing, we recommend following a preventive care schedule at our office so that if problems develop, we can identify and treat them early, keeping you healthy and pain-free.
Regularly Scheduled Exams
Making and keeping your regularly scheduled exams with Brentwood dentist Dr. Huma Bayat will be your best defense against unexpected dental treatment and emergencies. At each exam, Dr. Bayat will examine your soft tissue, your teeth, your bite, and perform an oral cancer screening to ensure that you are completely healthy. If she sees something that she feels needs your attention, she will let you know. That way, you can make an educated decision regarding your treatment before it becomes an issue.
Professional Teeth Cleaning
In addition to your regular exam, you will also receive a professional teeth cleaning at our Brentwood, CA dental office. Professional cleanings are necessary because despite your best efforts, you cannot remove all of the plaque and bacteria from your teeth. At our office, we have specialized techniques and instruments to remove even the most stubborn plaque and tartar buildup above and below the gumline.
Our professional cleanings are both gentle and thorough. Our highly skilled team will keep you comfortable and relaxed for your entire appointment.
Digital X-Rays and Imaging
Digital x-rays allow us to see what we cannot with the naked eye alone. Sometimes decay can hide in between the teeth or below the gum line, and with the help of digital x-rays, we can diagnose and treat decay early.
X-rays also allow us to monitor the bone levels in your jaw. Sometimes due to tooth loss or periodontal (gum) disease, your bone may begin to recede. Early diagnosis of bone loss allows us to take measures to preserve your teeth, when possible.
We also use the help of a tiny intraoral camera to help us take close-up images of your teeth. With these very close images, we can see things like cracks and broken fillings that we may not be able to see otherwise. These tools make early diagnosis much easier and that’s better for our patients!
Professional Product Recommendations
If you have a problem that requires any special products for tartar buildup or for sensitive teeth, our knowledgeable team will make recommendations that can help you stay healthier and make your home care easier.
