Dental health is vital not just for adults but also for kids. Unfortunately, many children do not get the dental care they need due to financial limitations. Knowing this, Dr. Justene Doan, a leading dentist in San Diego, teamed up with the non-profit TeamSmile and the San Diego Chargers to give free dental treatments to over 300 youths at the Qualcomm Stadium last October 14. TeamSmile is one of the nation’s leading advocacy groups that partners with athletic organizations and local dental practitioners to offer free dental services to the area’s underserved youth. During this activity, the kids were given the same triage, treatments, x-rays, preventive care, and education they could receive from visiting traditional dental offices.

Additionally, it has been noted that saliva generated during intense physical activities, including exercising, may contribute to tooth decay, cavities, and gum disease. With these increased risks, consulting with an experienced San Diego dentist should be made part of any athlete’s maintenance program, or anyone who leads an active lifestyle. Skilled Poway dentists from dental practices, such as A+ Family Dentistry, that serve the surrounding areas, as well, can help athletes with a dental maintenance program that keeps their dental health in top condition so they may train and play their optimal best. Many people pass up the opportunity to see their dentist until they feel pain. Waiting until trouble starts is not the best way to maintain one’s oral health. It’s important to get on a dental program so that any possible dental problems are identified and treated early on.

Q: What can I do about teeth discoloration? A: Teeth discoloration can be caused by a variety of reasons including age, cigarette smoking, frequent consumption of dark beverages (e.g. coffee, red wine), or certain diseases. Teeth whitening by a cosmetic dentist can remove or reduce teeth discoloration. Though generally done for cosmetic reasons, teeth whitening can also improve a patient’s oral health because the procedure gets rid of any existing plaque or tartar. Hopefully, the information above has helped answer some of your questions. If you believe cosmetic dentistry is something you need, feel free to make an appointment with your nearest San Diego or Poway dentist anytime.

Your dental records help determine your diagnosis and treatment. Dentists use the information written in your dental record to make a diagnosis, and also to look for any existing problems that might lead to complications in the future. With a dental record, the dentist can easily detail to the patient what needs to be done so that the patient may better understand why he will need a certain dental procedure. Taking down a patient’s information and creating and updating a dental record for him is a vital part of a dentist’s job. So when the time comes for a dental visit, regardless if it’s your first or follow-up appointment, don’t be surprised at how many questions the dentist or his assistant might ask. They are designed to make your dental procedures—whether they include San Diego dental implants, tooth extractions, or a simple cleaning—the safest they can be.

This may be a great option for those who find it difficult to undergo a dental procedure even after relaxation techniques and a good talk with their adept Poway dentists about the step-by-step process. Sedation dentistry is a safe and effective method that employs various medications to help the patient sleep, thus allowing the dentist to work unhindered. Said medications are categorized in varying levels to meet patients’ specific needs. Dental care and treatment is necessary for optimum dental health. There are times, however, when fear can get the best of people, and so they end up skipping dental visits. That’s why it’s great to have trustworthy dentists like Dr. Justene Doan, DDS of A+ Family Dentistry to help them out.

An intraoral camera is designed to take highly magnified images of an individual’s mouth. The photos will be taken from different angles like full face, smile, upper arch, and lower arch. One can think of them as the mouth’s selfies— after all, Time magazine says San Diego is among the U.S.’s top 20 “selfiest” cities. These will serve as bases for a dentist in San Diego to recommend implants or not. However, these images won’t be the only bases. Using panoramic X-rays Panoramic radiography takes an entire image of a person’s mouth, including the teeth, upper and lower jaws, plus surrounding structures and tissues. People can liken it to those chest X-rays they usually take for their annual physical exams or APEs. Panoramic X-rays are reliable ways to point out advanced periodontal diseases, oral cysts, tumors and oral cancer, and TMJ disorders.

"Competent Poway dentists such as A+ Family Dentistry’s Dr. Roger Tran, DDS, are capable of conducting in-house treatments and advising you on home care solutions to avert gum disease. Corbett quotes a Philadelphia dentist as saying that twice-daily mouthwash use reduces the odds by 60%; flossing before you brush dislodges plaque as well. Make it a point to replace your toothbrush every three months. Cleaning your teeth thoroughly will help avoid bigger dangers if you know how. Your dentist will guide you through it."

"Dental implants are titanium posts designed to be inserted right into the gums, where they will bond with the remaining jawbone mass. While the article noted the loose fits of traditional dentures amidst a receded gumline, implants act as the foundation to support them. A dentist who knows how to install San Diego dental implants only needs to drill corresponding holes into the dentures and treat the gums to lock them in. It’s not uncommon for elderly loved ones to suffer problems with their teeth. Effective treatment will make all the difference for them."
