Over 70% of adults in the United States have some form of gum disease, but they don’t even know it. At Santa Teresa Dental Center, with our menu of family dentistry services at our San Jose, CA dental office, we help our patients eliminate the bacterial infections around their teeth.
This doesn’t just help save smiles — we’re also fighting against problems like heart disease, stroke, and infertility which can be caused by dangerous bacteria spreading from the mouth into the bloodstream.
Athletic Mouth Guards
If you or your child are involved in any type of sports, wearing a custom fitted athletic mouth guard is one of your best pieces of insurance. Not only does it protect teeth, it can also reduce the risk of concussion.
Experiencing jaw pain, headaches or facial soreness? Ask Dr. Sudeep how you can protect your smile against excessive wear caused by jaw clenching and grinding by undergoing TMJ treatment.
Seal off deep grooves in the molars that are vulnerable to tooth decay with this inexpensive and effective preventive treatment. Dental sealants guard against cavities by forming a “shield” over the enamel of your teeth, keeping out bacteria and acids. Be sure to ask Dr. Sudeep about pediatric dental sealants to help protect your child’s smile!
The application of fluoride is intended to help remineralize weak areas of tooth enamel, keeping them resilient against bacteria and thwarting cavities.
Desensitizing Treatments for Sensitive Teeth
Do your teeth regularly cause you pain when exposed to heat, cold, or the air? Desensitizing treatments can help reduce the discomfort for patients with sensitive teeth. Dr. Sudeep and her team use a special paste that works immediately. We recommend patients with sensitive teeth visit our San Jose office every three months for a touch up!
Professional Teeth Cleaning
Regularly receiving professional teeth cleanings is an important preventive measure to help stop the progression of gingivitis and periodontal disease. We recommend our orally healthy patients receive teeth cleaning twice a year.
Oral Cancer Screening
Tobacco users aren’t the only ones who should be concerned about oral cancer. Oral cancer is on the rise across the United States. That’s why, at Santa Teresa Dental Center, we provide oral cancer screenings as part of your regular-checkup to all of our patients over the age of 18.
We use digital x-rays to produce enhanced computer images of our patient’s teeth, gums, and other oral structures and conditions. Digital x-rays are key to early detection and effective treatment of dental problems.
Our team at Santa Teresa Dental Center in San Jose is always here to answer any questions you have about general dentistry procedures and what you can expect as a new patient.
