Comprehensive Exam Process

The routine dental exams at Gardena Family Dentistry and Orthodontics are thorough and patient-focused. Each exam begins with a visual inspection of your teeth, gums, and mouth to check for any signs of decay, gum disease, or other oral health concerns. State-of-the-art digital X-rays may be used to provide a more detailed view of the teeth and jawbone, helping to identify issues that are not visible to the naked eye. Our Gardena dental team also takes the time to assess your bite, examine any existing dental work, and screen for oral cancer, ensuring a comprehensive evaluation of your oral health.

Preventive Care And Education

Preventive Care and Education

Prevention is key to maintaining a healthy smile, which is why these routine exams are paired with professional cleanings to remove plaque and tartar buildup that regular brushing and flossing might miss. The dental team at Gardena Family Dentistry and Orthodontics also focuses on patient education, offering personalized advice on oral hygiene practices, dietary choices, and lifestyle factors that can impact dental health. By empowering patients with the knowledge and tools they need to care for their teeth and gums at home, the practice supports long-term oral health and helps prevent the development of dental issues.
