General Dentistry Services from Newport Beach Dental

Teeth Cleaning to Smile About

Your teeth should be cleaned by a professional hygienist at least once every six months according to the Academy of General Dentistry. At Newport Beach Dental, we aim to keep your teeth and gums healthy with gentle, effective dental cleanings followed by thorough dental exams. When you visit Newport Beach Dental for your dental cleaning, our hygienists reduce your chances of developing cavities by removing plaque and tartar buildup from the surfaces of your teeth. And of course, while you are here, our helpful hygienists always have tips to keep your smile healthy and clean at home. After your cleaning, Dr. Alder will check for any oral health issues that may need our attention such as cavities, gum problems, and bite problems as well as perform an oral cancer screening. Most dental issues such as cavities and gum inflammation are relatively easy to correct when dealt with right away. Schedule your cleaning appointment today by calling (949) 642-2300 to keep your teeth healthy and strong.

No Rush at Newport Beach Dental

“Since a young age, teeth cleaning has never been something that I enjoyed.  When I started seeing Dr. Flores and Dr. Alder many years ago, my view was changed.  I think my favorite thing about this office, is how personal they are toward their clients. The receptionists always greet me by name when I walk in the door. My dental hygienist follows up on events in my life from previous visits.  She is always sensitive when cleaning my teeth.  She keeps me entertained the whole time with great stories, yet she is very focused on the task of cleaning my teeth.  I am always comfortable and don’t feel like I’m being poked at with sharp things. Dr. Alder and Dr. Flores always take the time to ask you how everything is going.  They do not rush in and out, but take the time to talk dental health, as well as show interest in my personal life.  I think that is becoming something rare in the health field today.”

Beyond the Basic Dental Cleaning in Newport Beach

You can rest easy that if any problems are discovered at your regular dental checkup, Dr. Alder is skilled in restorative procedures. We can provide composite fillings to correct cavities, as well as root canals, crowns, bridges or even dental implants to correct more serious problems. During your dental cleaning in Newport Beach you can also discuss cosmetic procedures with Dr. Alder. Teeth whitening or stain removal is one of the most common cosmetic procedures we provide. The best time to have your teeth whitened is right after a cleaning (and it’s pretty convenient timing as well!)

A Tip or Two From Your Newport Beach Dentist

What you do at home is just as important as what we do here at Newport Beach Dental. Brushing and flossing daily is essential in keeping your teeth and gums healthy and we want to make sure you are brushing and flossing effectively. Sometimes, when patients experience gum irritation they have a tendency to give up flossing. Sensitive or bleeding gums can be a sign that you have gingivitis. The irritation will actually become worse if you lesson your cleaning regimen and could develop into periodontal disease. If you can’t brush or floss after every meal or snack, at the very least rinse your mouth with water. This will rob the bacteria in your mouth of the sugars they require to produce the acid that causes cavities. If you have experienced any gum sensitivity or have other questions, please discuss this with us at your next cleaning.
