One Hour Every Six Months Can Help Keep Your Smile Healthy

One of the absolute best things you can do for your smile is to visit the dentist on a regular basis for a professional cleaning and thorough oral exam. At Irvine Spectrum Dental, we understand that not everyone enjoys coming to the dentist, but our team works with you and your comfort level to ensure that you always have a positive experience and keep a healthy, beautiful smile.

Some people may think that caring for their smile at home is enough to keep the plaque and bacteria away. While at-home dental is essential to your oral health, you cannot always reach every part of your mouth. By visiting the dentist regularly, our team can clean those hard-to-reach areas to make sure your smile is as healthy as it can be.

We will also floss between each tooth and polish your teeth to make them shine. Our dentist, Dr. Anthony Yu, will then examine your mouth for any signs of developing dental issues that may require treatment. To ensure a proper and thorough diagnosis, we may also take X-rays of your smile during your visit.

If you wish to avoid cavities or more serious oral conditions, such as gum disease, we encourage you to contact our practice at 949-387-6418 and set up your dental cleaning and exam in Irvine, California. We can help keep your smile in tip-top shape!
