Cleanings and Prevention in San Francisco
Teeth undergo a lot of wear and tear, and they are constantly being exposed to harmful bacteria. Their well-being depends on daily care and professional treatments to prevent damage and restore health.
To keep your smile beautiful and functional, Dr. Edna Santos at Union Square Cosmetic Dentistry in San Francisco provides cleanings and preventive procedures. With a compassionate and gentle manner, Dr. Santos’ dental care gives patients lustrous and healthy smiles.
Thorough and Accurate Exams for Superior Treatment
Bi-annual exams are essential to maintaining a healthy smile. Early detection allows dental professionals to treat minor issues before they become major threats to your teeth and gums. Early intervention also protects patients from more expensive and invasive treatments later.
Union Square Cosmetic Dentistry uses the cutting-edge technology of a cone-beam computed tomography scanner (CBCT) for high-resolution images of teeth, jaw, throat, and sinuses. By detecting a myriad of dental issues, Dr. Santos can keep smiles in optimal condition.
Digital X-rays are also used to capture images of patients’ dentition onto a computer where they are shared with patients so they can see for themselves the areas of concern. Using 90% less radiation than traditional dental x-rays, digital x-rays reveal abnormalities such as abscesses, tumors, and bone loss.
Dental Cleanings to Prevent Decay and Gum Disease
Dental Hygiene visits are necessary to address the areas in your teeth and gums that your daily at-home care may be overlooking. Only professional dental tools can remove stubborn plaque and tartar from teeth and gums, which prevents the spread of tooth decay and gum disease.
Professional cleanings also include fluoride treatments which re-mineralize enamel, making it strong. Teeth are also polished with an abrasive paste to remove stains from tooth surfaces, giving you a radiant and bright smile.
Dr. Santos seeks to educate patients on the proper oral healthcare and maintenance. Her primary goal is to keep your teeth healthy for as long as possible. She and her team of dedicated professionals offer tips for optimal oral health, and they listen to patient concerns. Her approach to treatment is always tailored to the unique goals of each individual patient.
