Dr. Baldwin Louie and Dr. Patricia Louie offer exams and cleaning services at their welcoming and comfortable practice in the Richmond District of San Francisco, CA. Patients receive high quality care and attention at every visit.
While daily brushing and flossing are essential to dental health and hygiene, regular professional cleanings and exams are also important to maintain healthy teeth and gums. Some stains and buildup need professional attention such as build up from coffee, tea and tobacco. Regular exams give the dentist an opportunity check for any dental problems in early stages. Issues like cavities, broken fillings and gum disease are easily treatable if caught early. Gum disease is one of the leading causes of tooth loss in adults, so regular cleaning and checkups will help to preserve a patient’s natural teeth.
The recommended frequency of dental visits is twice annually. However, patients with any history of periodontal (gum) disease should visit the dentist for cleanings and check ups more often to prevent the recurrence of infections or disease. People with diabetes or heart disease should have more regular check ups and those conditions have strong links to dental problems. Furthermore, any patients who use tobacco products will need to make more regular visits as tobacco can not only cause significant staining, but is a key risk factor for the development of oral cancer.
During a standard dental visit, the dentist will perform the following checks and treatments.
The cleaning will involve the following steps.
