Preventing tooth decay and gum disease requires an effective oral hygiene routine at home and scheduling biannual visits to your Chicago dental office. At Matsumoto Center for Dentistry, we provide state-of-the-art treatment to prevent the onset and progress of oral health conditions. By providing periodic comprehensive exams, professional teeth cleanings and educational resources, we can help you to maintain optimal oral health.
Tooth decay and gum disease are caused by plaque, a sticky film that continuously accumulates in the mouth, harboring harmful bacteria that feed on sugars. By brushing and flossing daily, you can help combat the detrimental effects of plaque, to keep your teeth healthy and strong. Although essential preventive care begins at home, it’s also important to schedule periodic checkups and cleanings at your Chicago dental office. During your visit for routine care, we’ll perform a professional teeth cleaning, removing plaque and tartar from difficult spots your toothbrush cannot reach. Beyond the removal of accumulated plaque and tartar, a teeth cleaning also gives us the opportunity to guide you on better techniques for maintaining the best possible oral hygiene at home.
As part of a routine checkup for patients of all ages, our dentist will perform a comprehensive examination of the teeth, gums, and their supporting structures, using diagnostic films as needed. Early detection and intervention allow for the most effective and straightforward course of treatment. Cavities can occur at any age, but due to diet and lifestyle habits, children are especially susceptible to tooth decay. For extra protection, we offer dental sealants and fluoride treatments, which are proven to reduce the risk of cavities in children. Throughout your visit, our compassionate dentist and professional staff will keep you informed and at ease, making each visit a valuable, stress-free experience for you and your family.
At Matsumoto Center for Dentistry, your oral health is our number one priority. Our Chicago dental office aims to help you and your family maintain a lifetime of healthy teeth and beautiful smiles. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, call today.
