Common Dental Procedures for a Beautiful and Healthy Smile
Are you unhappy with the appearance of your smile? Drs. Joyce Kahng and the Orange And Magnolia Dental Studio team welcome you to our Costa Mesa, California practice. The tools and techniques we use can ensure that you walk away with a beautiful and healthy smile.
Preventative dental care is so vital to your overall oral health. If you believe that your mouth’s health is intrinsically linked to your overall health, then preventive care is essential to your body’s overall health as well. Unfortunately, too many wait until it is too late to prevent a serious dental health issue before coming in. This can be due to dental stress or anxiety, but there is no need to worry. At Orange And Magnolia Dental Studio, our team provides gentle and patient-centric preventive dental care so that you can avoid having much larger issues develop.
The truth is that a visit to our practice now can save you a lot of money, discomfort, and suffering later. Other reasons you should visit us for preventative care include:
- Drs. Kahng and Shaw can monitor the current state of your teeth and gums. That allows our team to detect and prevent more minor issues from progressing into larger, more painful ones.
- Outside of possible dental fears and anxiety, some patients may avoid the dentist to save money. Unfortunately, this is a bit short-sighted. Waiting to treat a dental issue until you can feel the discomfort from it may mean that you will be paying more for reactive treatment rather than less expensive preventative care.
- Education is another reason you should seek regular preventative care. Drs. Kahng and Shaw can give you helpful tips on brushing, flossing, and other at-home care so that you are caring for your teeth and gums to the best of your ability.
The health of your gums is just as, if not more, important than the health of your teeth. Gum disease will start small but can present real health problems, including stroke, when allowed to progress. That is because the bacteria that cause gum disease will enter your bloodstream and travel to other parts of your body. At Orange And Magnolia Dental Studio, our team will detect early signs of gum disease (also called periodontal disease) so that it can be reversed before it is allowed to progress.
When allowed to progress, gum disease can result in health issues, including loose teeth or teeth which fall out. Do yourself a favor and do not delay. If you notice early signs of gum disease, such as gums that bleed, please come in and see us so we can develop a periodontal treatment plan that gets your mouth back to health. Our dentists provide tailored treatment to patients based on their needs, including:
- Deep Cleaning/Scaling
- Root Planing
- Laser Pocket Reduction
- Gum Grafting
