Your first visit
What will happen during my first visit to Dr. Zak Dental Care - Valencia
During your initial visit to Dr. Zak Dental Care – Valencia, Dr. Zak will perform a comprehensive dental exam and may suggest preventive care options to help you maintain your good oral health and a beautiful bright and white smile.
If necessary Dr. Zak may suggest preventive care options that include fluoride treatment, sealants, professional breath control, and periodontal (gum disease) treatments designed to help you maintain your smile's health and beauty. Of course, the best treatment for periodontal disease is prevention. This means brushing and flossing daily, along with regular visits to your dentist for dental cleanings and examination, which can ward off gum disease and keep your smile healthy now and in the future. This very simple element of dentistry can help prevent tooth loss, gum disease, and bad breath and in this way enhance your overall general health. Whether a six month checkup or full periodontal therapy, our hygienists will always strive to provide the very best treatment while maintaining your absolute comfort.
What is a sealant and what does it do?
A sealant is a resin material that is applied to the chewing surfaces of teeth. According to the American Dental Association, over 80% of cavities are caused by decay that a sealant can prevent. As long as the sealant remains intact, the tooth surface will be protected. Sealants hold up well under the force of normal chewing and usually last several years before a reapplication is needed. At Dr. Zak Dental Care – Valencia, we make sure to check your sealants during regular check-ups and replace them when necessary so that your teeth always stay protected.
