Regular visits to the dentist is the key to a healthy mouth in the 94118 area
Many people think about visiting the dentist only when they have a problem with their teeth, mouth, or gums. However, regular dental visits, along with proper oral hygiene such as brushing and flossing are the key to keeping a mouth healthy and avoiding potential problems. Dentists are trained and experienced in treating a wide variety of oral health issues such as tooth decay, gum disease, tooth loss, and more. Dr. Leo Arellano and his team are dedicated to providing expert dental care to patients in the 94118 area.
In this practice, Dr. Arellano and his team know that the best way to treat dental problems is to keep them from occurring. Patients who keep up with twice a year checkups are given valuable information and education about at-home oral health care. Additionally, the dental team examines the mouth to ensure that the patient’s at-home care is effective. If plaque or tartar is found on the teeth, it is removed during the professional cleaning portion of the visit. This is important because there are certain areas of the teeth that simply cannot be reached at home.
Also during your preventative checkups, Dr. Arellano will examine the mouth to check for any potential problems. Many oral health issues – such as cavities and gum disease – are easier to treat the sooner they are caught. If Dr. Arellano finds an issue, he will work with you to ensure it is treated. Patients’ concerns and opinions are always considered before a treatment plan is undertaken. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to dentistry; instead, patients are treated as individuals.
Recent studies have linked the health of the mouth to the health and overall wellness of the patient. Dr. Arellano is committed to making sure that each patient has the care and education they need to keep their mouths healthy and their smiles confident.
