A preventive approach to dental healthcare helps you maintain healthy, beautiful teeth throughout your life. At Diablo Valley Dental, we recommend that patients come in at least twice a year for a thorough, professional teeth cleaning and comprehensive examination. Periodic visits with our Pleasant Hill dental office allow us to keep your teeth healthy from the start, and to diagnose oral health problems from their outset, when they are easiest to treat.
Keeping your teeth and gums healthy begins at home, with brushing, flossing and making the right dietary choices. Tooth decay and gum disease are caused by sticky film called plaque, which gathers continuously in your mouth and harbors bacteria that feed on sugar. A professional teeth cleaning allows us to get rid of plaque that is difficult to reach, as well as plaque that has calcified and turned to tartar. Our dentist will also guide you on better techniques for your at-home care routine. We aim to make dental checkups a positive learning experience, especially for our youngest patients, who are just beginning to learn the importance of oral hygiene. For extra protection against cavities, we provide our pediatric patients with fluoride treatments and dental sealants. As part of your or your child’s checkup, our dentist will examine the teeth, gums and their supporting bone structure, with the use of diagnostic films, as needed. Detecting oral health conditions early on allows for the most straightforward and effective course of treatment. Any time you visit our Pleasant Hill dental office, our caring team of professionals keeps you well informed and helps you feel at ease.
At Diablo Valley Dental, we provide state-of-the-art care to prevent the onset and progress of oral health problems. Our Pleasant Hill dental office is committed to helping you and your family enjoy better oral health.
