Preventive care is all about catching dental issues before they happen, and routine six-month cleanings and exams are the best way to keep your oral health in check. If you’re overdue for an appointment in Irvine, schedule your visit today.
Preventive care stops common problems like cavities and gum disease from forming in the first place. This keeps your mouth healthy and saves you money, too. If Dr. Mita notices an oral health issue early, she can take action and prevent it from getting worse.
Not sure what to expect as a first-time visitor at Trooth & Smiles? Here’s a quick breakdown of what happens at a typical cleaning and exam.
Cleaning & hygiene appointments should be scheduled every six months. During your appointment, your mouth will be cleaned to keep it healthy, and Dr. Mita will look for common oral health problems.
Brushing & flossing lessons are available from our team. If you want to learn how to care for your mouth more effectively, we’re here to help.
Digital x-rays are faster, simpler, and require less radiation than old-fashioned film x-rays. They're essential for looking for oral health problems that may be hiding below your gums and your teeth.
Fluoride treatments use a fluoride-rich liquid to fortify your teeth against cavities. Dr. Mita will simply paint this liquid onto your teeth, leave it in place for a few minutes, then rinse it away. Regular fluoride treatments help strengthen cavity-prone teeth.
Dental sealants are made of a special type of dental resin. This is applied to your rear teeth in liquid form. Then, Dr. Mita will harden it with a special UV light. This forms an invisible barrier. Bacteria, food particles, and acid can’t contact your enamel directly, which helps prevent cavities.
Gum disease affects nearly half of all adults. Whether you have gingivitis or a more serious case of gum disease, we can help. Contact us to learn about your options and protect your oral health.
Night guards are made of durable plastic, and help prevent tooth damage from teeth grinding (bruxism). A custom-fitted night guard is a great investment in your oral health.
If you play contact sports or participate in hobbies like skateboarding or mountain biking, consider a sports guard. These custom-fitted mouth guards fit over your teeth and gums. If you’re struck in the mouth, your mouth guard will spread out the impact, protect your teeth, and prevent oral injuries.
Oral cancer often goes unnoticed in the early stages, unless it’s recognized by a dentist. That’s why Dr. Jethwani performs comprehensive oral cancer screenings at each six-month appointment. Your routine screening at Trooth & Smiles gives you valuable peace of mind.
Whether you’re switching dentists in Irvine or you’re new to the area, our team is here to help. Dr. Mita is always accepting new patients, and we’d love to meet you and your family. Get in touch now and get started right away.
