At the office of Dr. Heather R. Adams we focus on preventing the onset and progress of tooth decay, gum disease and other problems that may be harmful to your oral health. As the best way to maintain optimal oral health, we recommend biannual checkups and cleanings. As your Chula Vista dentist
, we tailor treatment to meet the individual of each patient, making it convenient and stress-free to maintain excellent oral health.
Tooth decay, gum disease and other oral health problems are caused by plaque, which is a sticky film that gathers continuously in every human mouth, harboring millions of harmful bacteria. To protect your teeth and gums from the consequences of a plaque buildup, you need to brush, floss and limit your intake of sugary foods and beverages. However, while an effective home care routine is of the utmost importance, plaque can still gather in areas between your teeth and gums that are too difficult for your toothbrush to reach. For this reason a professional teeth cleaning every six months is an excellent idea. At this time, we can thoroughly remove any residual plaque, tartar and food debris, as well as offer guidance as to how you can clean and care for your teeth more effectively at home. At every checkup visit our Chula Vista dentist
will perform a comprehensive examination of the teeth, gums and their surrounding anatomy, using advanced digital radiography, as needed. Periodic checkups allow us to diagnose conditions that may adversely affect your oral health when they are in their earliest stages and easiest to treat.
For our youngest patients, education is an especially important preventive tool, as we strive to impart to your child healthy oral hygiene habits that will last a lifetime. We also recommend fluoride treatments and dental sealants for our pediatric patients, which offer an added layer of protection against cavities.
When you visit our Chula Vista dentist
for your biannual checkup, you can rest assured your smile is in the best hands of care. At the office of Dr. Heather R. Adams, we make every visit to our office an informative, engaging experience. To learn more or to schedule a checkup, call today.
