Preventive Dental Care

Preventive care is about stopping problems before they happen. We want to help you do this. Oral health affects your overall health, let us show you how your oral health is doing and prevent problems from growing. At San Diego Dental Studio, Dr. Bierman, Dr. Ma and Dr. Summerhays provide comprehensive care for your oral health. Some of the preventive services that our practice provides include:

Dental Cleanings, Exams and X-Rays

Biannual Checkups are recommended as the minimum for every patient. For those with larger issues such as Gum and Periodontal Disease, we may request to see you more frequently.

Oral Examinations should occur at least once a year, depending on your past history of cavities.

Digital X-Rays are taken every 6 months to 3 years depending on your past history of restorations and how regularly you visit the dentist for exams.

Gum and Periodontal Disease

Gum Disease is the inflammation of the gums, it occurs when plaque builds up below the gum-line causing redness and soreness. Gum Disease will progress causing the gums to pull away from the roots of the teeth compromising the strength of your teeth. It has been linked to diabetes and heart disease. Caught early, Gum Disease is reversible.

Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ)

The purpose of your TMJ, which is the hinge joint of your jaw bone, is to allow movement in your mouth. When the joint is properly aligned, your teeth meet allowing for an optimal bite position, allowing you to properly chew and speak without any discomfort. When this joint is out of alignment, there can be discomfort in chewing and speaking which is called TMD meaning a joint disorder.

Oral Cancer Awareness

Part of your oral examination is screening for Oral Cancer. We use a tool called The VELscope Vx Enhanced Oral Assessment System. This is a useful device for head and neck exams allowing us to look for any abnormailities.
