Educating Patients of All Ages
The accumulation of harmful plaque can persist, even if patients maintain regular brushing habits. While effective brushing addresses the visible parts of teeth, small bits of debris can gather between your teeth, especially in hard-to-reach areas at the back of the mouth. This is why flossing and rinsing are essential to your oral health; these activities prevent gum disease (periodontitis) which has a negative effect on both your smile and your overall health. Dr. Fat provides tips on cleaning all sides of teeth each morning and night, such as the correct angle to hold your toothbrush and how to curve floss around each tooth.
During appointments, we take detailed intraoral photos, which help us determine the health of your smile and plan for necessary treatments. Our highly-trained hygienists are great at instilling positive oral health habits while building long-lasting relationships with patients. We ensure you leave our office with an understanding of your current health status and how we can work together to improve or maintain your wellness.
Thorough Treatment at our Sacramento Dental Office
Our hygienists have extensive experience with deep cleanings and are able to perform scaling and root planing for patients with plaque and signs of periodontal disease. This helps prevent the development of gum disease, which eventually leads to tooth loss. We also perform oral cancer screenings to catch any potential warning signs as early as possible. For patients with teeth compromised by decay, Dr. Diana Fat offers tooth-colored fillings, which stop the spread of decay and allow you to enjoy a seamless smile.
Our friendly hygienists use with state-of-the-art technology to recommend effective treatments. With this equipment on hand, we are able to diagnose issues such as sleep apnea and TMD.
