If you are looking for an outstanding dental practice, then you should become familiar with our practice, Hurst Dental Care. Our expert dentists, Dr. Steven T. Hurst and Dr. Bridget M. Hurst, can provide you with complete dental care, and you can also get preventive care and teeth cleaning in San Diego at our office.
Even with the very best at-home dental cleaning, it is important to visit our office for regular dental exams and a teeth cleaning in San Diego on a biannual basis. This way you will be assured that any dental problems will be caught early before they are allowed to develop and cause serious dental issues. It is very important to brush your teeth at home to remove plaque from teeth. However, when you come to our office for a dental cleaning, dental plaque will not only be removed from on your teeth, but from between your teeth and from just below the gum line. In addition, when dental plaque is allowed to remain on teeth, it turns into tartar. Tartar is a hard, mineralized substance which tightly adheres to teeth. It can only be removed from teeth with professional dental cleanings and instruments; no amount of tooth brushing will ever be able to remove dental tartar. When plaque remains on teeth, it can cause dental cavities, and gum problems such as gingivitis. When a patient has gingivitis, plaque has caused the gums to become inflamed. Usually a few regular dental cleanings over the coming months will help the gums return to excellent health. If our dentist determines that deep pockets have developed between the teeth and gums, it means that you have gum disease and will need to have a scaling and root planing treatment. Other preventive dental treatments that we provide are fluoride treatments to help strengthen tooth enamel, and dental sealants to protect a child’s molars.
