We tailor our comprehensive preventive program to meet the individual needs of each member of your family, and recommend coming in twice a year for comprehensive checkups, which include a comprehensive exam, Mira Mesa teeth cleaning, oral cancer screening and treatments designed to help protect your smile. Our friendly team of professionals strives to make your checkup a positive, educational experience.
Tooth decay and gum disease are widespread oral health problems that can be attributed to the buildup of a sticky film called plaque. Plaque gathers continuously in your mouth, harboring bacteria that feed on sugar. When you brush, floss and limit your intake of sugary foods and beverages, you help manage plaque buildup, protecting your teeth and gums. A periodic Mira Mesa teeth cleaning and exam complements your daily home care routine to ensure a healthy, beautiful smile. During your teeth cleaning, we’ll thoroughly remove plaque, tartar and food debris from difficult to reach areas between your teeth and gums. Education is an important preventive tool as well, and we’ll take the time to teach you and your loved ones the most effective methods to clean and care for your teeth between visits. To help our youngest patients establish a strong foundation for healthy, cavity-free smile, we offer dental sealants and fluoride treatments, which offer an added layer of protection against tooth decay. For patients of all ages, we’ll perform a comprehensive examination, using advanced digital radiography, as needed, to diagnose oral health problems in their earliest stages, when they’re easiest to treat.
Attaining a lifetime of excellent oral health is easy when you visit us for your preventive checkup and Mira Mesa teeth cleaning. At the office of Dr. Melinda Marino, your family’s oral health is our highest priority. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, call today.
