Plaque is a sticky, bacteria-filled, substance that constantly forms on your teeth. The accumulation of plaque causes cavities and leads to other dental problems. Seeing your Orange dentist and your hygienist at Chu & Yang Dental for regular checkups and professional cleanings is a great way to prevent the accumulation of plaque.
Plaque develops when the food particles in your mouth mix with saliva. Plaque causes cavities when the acids from the plaque attack your teeth after eating. If it is not removed, the tooth enamel can break down and a cavity could form. However, there is good news. Good oral hygiene and getting regular professional teeth-cleanings helps to rid of plaque, prevent the formation of tartar and helps to prevent cavities. Therefore, it is so important to see your Orange dentist and hygienist at Chu & Yang Dental every six months. When you choose our practice for your family, you’re choosing excellence.

If you have receding gums, you know how unattractive they can be. At Chu & Yang Dental, our Tustin dentist, just one of whom is Dr. Josephine Yang, can fix your receding gums with an innovative Pinhole surgical technique.
The Pinhole surgical technique for fixing receding gums is commonly referred to as PST. It is a new periodontal treatment that is used to treat gum recession. When gums recede, it may appear as though the teeth are getting longer. But, what is actually happening is that the gums are moving back from the gum line. Gum recession can occur for different reasons. Sometimes it is the result of gum disease, such as gingivitis, periodontitis, or advanced periodontitis. Gum recession can also occur as part of the natural aging process. If you frequently brush your teeth with improper tooth brushing technique or with bristles that are too hard for your gums, gum recession can even be caused by this. This is just one reason why you want to make sure that you are brushing your teeth correctly. When a person has gum recession, the root structure of the tooth becomes exposed. This is not only unattractive, but it is unhealthy for the tooth root. This makes it more possible for tooth decay and other tooth problems to affect the teeth along the gum line, as well as beneath it. If you want to have healthy teeth, it is important that your gums are healthy, as well. So, for this reason, as well as for cosmetic dental reasons, you may want to come to our dental practice to have your gums fixed with this Pinhole surgical technique. It is a minimally invasive procedure for treating gum recession. And, possibly the best part of the treatment, which replaces the need for gum grafting, is that the patient does not need to have any incisions made in the gums by our Tustin dentist, nor receive any stitches.
