General and Preventive Dentistry for San Jose Families
Your health and the health of your family is your primary concern, and it’s ours as well. Preventive dental care should be as much a part of your fit lifestyle as regular exercise and a nourishing diet. Most adults will need to visit our general dentistry practice twice a year. This allows Dr. Swathi to provide preventive treatments that head off dental disease. In addition, routine visits allow us to detect potential problems early, such as cavities or periodontal disease, and halt the progress with restorative dentistry measures.
What You Can Expect at Your General Dentistry Visit
Your comprehensive, twice yearly appointment will include several measures designed to detect problems, protect your health, and should take one to two hours. A series of x-rays provides Dr. Swathi a complete view of your dentition, including areas between teeth where cavities may be forming out of sight. Our skilled team of hygienists will remove calculus from teeth and gum lines, and then polish your pearly whites. Your smile will be clean and bright, and these preventive measures will help keep gum disease at bay.
Orthodontics for Dental Disease Prevention
You may think of orthodontic treatment as cosmetic, but straight teeth can help prevent dental problems. How? Overlapping teeth are more difficult to clean, and give plaque and bacteria a place to hide. This can result in additional cavities and contribute to poor oral health. In addition, patients with crooked teeth usually suffer from misalignments as well, which means that the teeth don’t meet properly, causing uneven biting pressure, strain on jaw muscles, jaw joint damage, and headaches. Adults and children alike can benefit from orthodontic treatment with San Jose general dentist Dr. Swathi. An examination and consultation will help Dr. Swathi determine if traditional braces, Invisalign, an oral appliance, or other orthodontic treatment is right for you.
