Dental Exam and Cleaning
Keeping teeth and gums healthy is the purpose of oral hygiene routines. Daily brushing and flossing are used to remove bacteria or plaque that forms inside of the mouth shortly after eating. While personal oral hygiene routines are important, a professional dental exam and cleaning from our North Hollywood dentist is equally important. When bacteria or food particles become lodged in between teeth, the escalation and formation of cavities, tooth decay, and oral diseases like gingivitis become possible. The foundation of all dental treatments begins with a dental exam and cleaning.
These routine procedures provide the best protection when scheduled regularly every 6 months. The dental exam allows the dentist to evaluate the success of your current oral health routines and reveal potential problems that may be in the early stages of development. Dental x-rays can help to uncover deterioration of tooth roots or decay that can exist below the gum line out of normal view. Early detection of teeth or gum problems or deterioration is important for both oral and personal health.
Your professional dental cleaning will begin with a calm and safe procedure designed by our dentist in North Hollywood. Each tooth will be examined for signs of deterioration or decay. Excess bacteria or plaque will be removed from teeth and gums. This removal decreases the risk of cavity growth, yellowing, and tooth decay. The prevention of periodontal disease is important and a thorough dental exam and cleaning can diagnose early stages of periodontal disease that can be treated and reversed.
Existing dental work also needs a routine dental exam and cleaning to inspect for deterioration and to remove harmful bacteria from the teeth. This thorough cleaning prolongs the life of dental work and ensures that bacteria does not spread to surrounding teeth and gum lines. A healthy mouth can lead to a healthy smile and receiving these treatments provides the best protection when combined with personal oral hygiene routines.

Now I Can Smile Again!
The dentist just made my front teeth/smile look like I had veneers implanted! She took away all my dark spots and heading without crowns and painful implants. It looks amazing! Thank You 🙂
The dentist was very kind + caring. Highly recommend! I only had a few days left on my dental insurance + she helped to prioritize my care + fit me in so that I could get issues taken care of in a pinch. The office manager, couldn't have been sweeter + she helped me to understand the sometimes tricky insurance pieces + actual prices I'd be paying before I made any decisions. A+ experience.
