If you are looking for a top-notch dental practice where you and your family can receive annual oral exams and teeth cleanings, you should visit us at Chu & Yang Dental. Just one of our expert dentists is Dr. Josephine Yang. Many of our patients schedule their Irvine teeth cleaning and annual oral exam for the same date for added convenience.
In order for your teeth and gums to stay healthy, it is important that you have a great at-home teeth cleaning regimen, and that you visit us about every six months for your Irvine teeth cleaning. During a regular dental cleaning, all plaque and tartar will be removed from your teeth. Tartar is a hard, mineralized substance that tightly adheres to teeth and can only be removed with professional dental cleaning instruments; it cannot be removed with any amount of tooth brushing. If plaque is not fully removed from your teeth during your at-home brushing it will quickly harden and turn into tartar. When tartar stays on teeth for an extended period of time, deep pockets will form between your teeth and gums and gingivitis and gum disease will most likely develop. However, when you have periodic teeth cleanings at our dental office, you will not need to worry about the development of gum disease, in almost all cases. Additionally, having your teeth cleaned on a regular basis will also help to greatly reduce the number of dental cavities that develop on your teeth. This is because plaque, which is removed during dental cleanings, contains cavity-causing acids which will eat through your tooth enamel if allowed to stay on teeth. During your annual oral exams, the health of your mouth will be fully examined including a thorough review of your teeth and gums. You will also have your mouth reviewed for any signs of oral cancer. Our dentist will also examine your bite to make sure no problems are developing from TMJ, teeth grinding, or missing teeth.
