Visiting our Manhattan Beach best dentist twice a year for teeth cleanings, examination, oral cancer screenings and protective treatments can help you and your family maintain healthy, beautiful smiles throughout your lives. At Gitlin Dental Arts, we provide personalized preventive care for patients of all ages, and make every checkup a positive learning experience for you and your loved ones. Our office utilizes leading-edge technology and methods to halt the onset and progress of conditions that may adversely affect your oral health, keeping your teeth and gums healthy from the start.
Tooth decay and gum disease are caused by a sticky film called plaque, which gathers continuously in your mouth, harboring harmful bacteria that feed on sugar. The bacteria in plaque produce acids, which eat away at tooth enamel, causing cavities to form. When plaque gathers below the gum line, it infects and inflames the soft tissues and bone structure supporting the teeth, leading to periodontal disease. Brushing, flossing, limiting your intake of sugar and visiting our office for periodic professional teeth cleanings help protect your teeth from the detrimental effects of plaque. During your teeth cleaning, we’ll thoroughly remove plaque buildup from the most difficult to reach areas between your teeth and gums. We’ll also evaluate your oral hygiene routine and offer suggestions as to how you can better clean and care for your teeth between checkups. For our pediatric patients, we offer dental sealants and fluoride treatments, which provide an added layer of protection against tooth decay. For patients of all ages, our Manhattan Beach best dentist will provide a thorough examination, with the use of advanced digital radiography, as needed. Periodic examinations allow us to diagnose oral health problems from their outset, for the most straightforward and effective course of treatment.
At Gitlin Dental Arts, we offer convenient evening and weekend hours, making it easier to schedule your family’s biannual checkups. With the personalized, compassionate care of our Manhattan Beach dentist, every checkup is a worry-free experience. To schedule an appointment, call today.
