WHAT IS A FAMILY DENTIST?

Family dentists provide comprehensive dental care to all members of your family, offering both adult and children’s dentistry services. For everything from regular checkups and cleanings to emergency chipped tooth treatments and root canals, your family dentistry practice will take good care of you and everyone else you live with.

WHAT IS CHILDREN’S DENTISTRY?

Children should see a dentist when they are young and throughout their growing years. At Dentist of Cerritos, we specialize in children’s dentistry and will be able to care for your children’s dental needs from birth until they become adults.

WHAT IS A DENTAL CHECKUP?

Part of a good oral hygiene regimen includes going to the dentist regularly so they can perform a dental checkup. A simple procedure, this involves little more than checking your teeth, taking X-rays and other images to look for issues, and professionally cleaning your teeth. Your dentist might also look for signs of oral cancer.

WHAT IS A DENTAL CLEANING?

Dental cleanings comprise the bulk of most dental checkups. During this phase of the checkup, your dentist or hygienist will scrape off all the plaque and tartar that has built up on your teeth. They’ll also polish the teeth for a perfectly clean smile.

WHAT IS TOOTH EXTRACTION?

When a tooth is so damaged or decayed that it can’t be repaired, a tooth extraction must be performed. This involves removing the tooth, and often an implant or bridge is inserted where the tooth previously was. An extraction might also be recommended if your mouth is overcrowded.

WHAT IS WISDOM TOOTH EXTRACTION?

The wisdom teeth are the last teeth to come in, and most people have four of them. These teeth frequently cause alignment issues when they move in, so many dentists recommend a wisdom tooth extraction as a routine procedure.

WHAT IS A ROOT CANAL?

If decay creeps down deep in a tooth, your dentist might recommend a root canal. During this procedure, the decay is removed from the tooth’s soft root. A dental sealant is then used to cap off the tooth so that it can function as normal.

WHAT IS DENTAL SEDATION?

Many patients who visit a family dentistry practice would prefer to undergo their treatments while asleep, and sedation is usually an option. For both routine cleanings and major procedures, such as root canals, we offer a variety of ways to numb the area and make you feel at ease.

WHAT ARE DENTAL SEALANTS?

Dental sealants are used to encapsulate a tooth’s chewing surface. Most often applied to the molars, these are used after filling cavities and anytime the enamel on top of a tooth is eroded.

WHAT IS FLUORIDE TREATMENT?

A fluoride treatment covers the teeth with a protective coating that helps prevent decay. The treatment has been proven to fight cavities and is especially helpful where tooth enamel is thin. Widely recommended in family dentistry, fluoride treatments are routine children’s dentistry procedures and are often also given to adults.

WHAT IS SCALING & ROOT PLANING?

When plaque and tartar get below the surface of the gum, scaling and root planing are necessary. Your dentist will first perform a scaling, in which they remove the tartar that lies below your gums. They’ll then plane the gum line so that the gums reattach to your teeth. This treatment is very helpful for gum disease (periodontitis).

WHAT IS A DIGITAL X-RAY?

While dentists can do a lot by just looking at your teeth, digital X-rays afford a view that’s otherwise impossible to get. Often, these images are used to diagnose cavities and other types of inner tooth decay.

CAN TOOTH PAIN BE TREATED?

Tooth pain is a common ailment, and there are multiple ways to treat it. Depending on the precise cause of your pain, your dentist might recommend a sensitive toothpaste, fluoride treatment, dental sealant, or other procedure for tooth pain relief.

CAN YOU FIX A CHIPPED TOOTH?

A chipped tooth may be among the more common dental emergencies, but it’s also one of the more treatable injuries. Your dentist will know how to reconstruct a chipped tooth so that the tooth is just like it was prior to injury.

WHAT ARE DENTAL EMERGENCIES?

Injuries and undiagnosed decay can result in dental emergencies, and these always seem to arise at the most inconvenient times. Should you ever experience a dental emergency, such as a chipped tooth, your family dentistry practice at Dentist of Cerritos likely has an open appointment available to treat whatever the issue is.

WHAT IS DENTAL TRAUMA?

Dental trauma can result from major events like sports injuries and car accidents or everyday events like chewing and drinking. No matter what caused an injury to your teeth, your dentist will know how to remedy the damage, so your smile looks beautiful, and your teeth fully function again. For serious cases, such as an accident, call us immediately and/or go to the ER.
