Helping You Avoid Dental Problems to Keep a Healthy Smile for a Lifetime

At Irvine Spectrum Dental, we believe that preventing a dental problem is always better than treating it. Because of this belief, we proudly offer a wide range of preventive dental services to help keep your mouth healthy for life. Depending on your unique needs, our dentist may recommend that you receive one or more of the following preventive treatments when you visit our practice:

With our preventive services, we can help keep your mouth in pristine condition and help you avoid the need for dental restorations as a result of dental problems. In order to ensure that your smile remains healthy, Dr. Anthony Yu encourages all of our patients to visit our practice every six months for a routine cleaning and checkup. These visits help us catch problems early on and provide early treatment to help you avoid further damage.

Between your dental visits, it is important that you continue to take care of your smile at home. To do this, our dentist and team recommend that you make the following a part of your daily life:

  • Brush twice a day and floss at least once a day. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste.
  • Eat a balanced and nutritious diet that is low in sugars or acidic foods. This includes soda!
  • Use additional dental hygiene tools, such as mouthwash, to keep your smile extra clean.
