The General Dentistry Practice for Healthy Teeth and Gums
Dr. Chung and Dr. Alexander offer a range of general dentistry services. Some of them include:
Dental Exams and Dental Cleanings
Dental cleanings are the crux of most checkups. However, the cleanings involve more than having a professional brush your teeth.
We provide various services during the cleaning session, including fluoride treatments and using sealants to protect your teeth. The general dentist will also provide nutritional advice to help you maintain a healthy smile.
Gum Disease Treatment
At Charming Smiles of La Quinta, we use scaling and root planning to ensure painful gum disease doesn’t ruin your smile. We deeply cleanse the area beneath the gum line during the treatment to remove plaque and tartar. We also clean the tooth roots to eliminate the formation of harmful bacteria.
Are you an athlete or a very active individual? Our general dentistry service includes custom mouthguards design and production to protect your teeth while you’re in action.
We also recommend mouthguards for people dealing with temporomandibular joint (TMJ) problems and teeth grinding. Both issues can cause jaw pain, tooth enamel damage, and headaches.
Custom mouthguards we produce at our dental practice will fit better and work more effectively than store-bought DIY options.
Oral Cancer Detection
Our general dental care solutions also involve looking for signs of oral cancer during teeth cleaning and examinations. It’s difficult to see inside your own mouth, so you may not spot the signs of oral cancer until it is too late.
A professional inspection using dental gear will expose any rough patches, hard lumps, and red and white spots—all common signs of early-stage oral cancer. If we spot these signs, we’ll refer you to an oncologist for further tests.
Bad Breath Treatment
Do you have smelly breath? You don’t have to live with it. In most cases, bad breath is a sign of infection, gum disease, cavities, and poor oral hygiene.
Cleaning your teeth and tongue the right way can eliminate the causes of bad breath most of the time. If there are other causes of bad breath (such as dry mouth), we’ll explore ways to deal with them.
