How Does A Teeth Cleaning Optimize Your Oral Health?
As your life becomes busier, taking care of your teeth might be pushed down the list. However, attending your regular dental appointments is more important than you think. It’s not only great for your oral health but benefits your overall health as well. Has it been years since you visited a dentist? No worries. It’s never too late to start investing in your smile.
If you live near Hermosa Beach, at Manhattan Beach Dental Solutions, we offer gentle yet effective dental cleaning to ensure your teeth and gums remain healthy for many years to come. Here is how dental cleaning complements your oral health care.
The American Dental Association (ADA) recommendation is to brush twice a day (2 minutes each time) and to floss once a day. For some folks not in the habit of this routine, this may be a tall ask. Even for folks who do commit themselves to this routine, there will still be leftover tartar and plaque that our toothbrushes and floss can’t reach! That includes even the best electric toothbrushes!
A dental cleaning includes diagnostic x-rays (to make sure no cavities are developing), a physical examination by the doctor, and thorough cleaning by the hygienist.
Your bi-annual dental appointment isn’t all about cleaning. Dr. Don Mungcal physically examines your teeth, gums, and other mouth tissues to look out for signs of gum disease, cavities (tooth decay), and the way your teeth bite (checking for imbalances that can cause headaches/jaw aches).
We use the latest technology, such as digital x-rays, to check for oral health problems that you can’t spot with a naked eye.

Oral cancer screening
Besides looking out for typical oral health issues, Dr. Mungcal evaluates your tongue, neck, gums, and other oral tissues to detect oral cancer or precancerous lesions. Early detection of oral cancer is critical, especially before it advances to a life-threatening stage.
We not only diagnose problems but provide solutions, too. If Dr. Mungcal diagnoses cavities, he will recommend tooth-colored fillings.
