Dental VisitsPreventative dentistry is one of the most important ways to keep your smile healthy and Dr. David Gordon in Vallejo, CA, can help you keep up with that by having you see him twice a year.

The reasons why we see the dentist

Yes, from toddlerhood on up, we all should see the dentist at least semi-annually for complete oral examinations and professional cleanings. The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends this schedule so that teeth and gums stay as healthy and possible, avoiding tooth decay, gum disease, destructive bite issues, deterioration of fillings and crowns and much more.

Also, the ADA maintains that oral health impacts approximately 125 systemic conditions such as arthritis, osteoporosis and diabetes. If someone has an autoimmune or inflammatory disease, they may have gum disease or other dental issue.

In these cases, your dentist in Vallejo, CA, may reccomend an individualized treatment schedule. For instance, someone may need periodontal maintenance three times a year to stay healthy. Pregnant women and cancer patients also require close monitoring.

Additionally, Dr. Gordon cites other situations where a trip to his office is warranted:

  1. Oral injury resulting in a laceration, displaced, loose or lost tooth, dental fracture, or object caught between teeth
  2. Lost or damaged restoration
  3. Toothache
  4. Broken denture or bridgework
  5. Loose tooth
  6. A sore which does not heal
  7. Any mouth or jaw pain

Your dentist and his staff are available for over the phone questions and same-day appointments to address your most pressing dental matters.

Putting on appearances

Besides oral health, smile aesthetics help people function well socially and professionally. If you desire a better looking and functioning smile, book a cosmetic dentistry consultation with Dr. Gordon. He offers services which improve the color, shape, and arrangement of teeth so when you smile, people react positively.

Dr. Gordon's cosmetic dentistry services include:

  • Teeth whitening
  • Composite resin bonding
  • Tooth-colored fillings
  • Porcelain crowns
  • Porcelain veneers

You can schedule your smile analysis with your routine exam and cleaning or at another time convenient to your schedule. Either way, you'll enjoy a visit which opens up the world of cosmetic dentistry to you and allows you to explore the possibilities of a renewed smile.
