Hi, I’m Dr. Marcos Ortega of Marcos Ortega DDS. If you are one of my existing cosmetic dentistry patients, welcome back. If this is your first visit, I appreciate you stopping by.
My very comfortable and friendly team and I love taking care of our San Diego area patients.
Today’s article is for San Diego area people who are overdue for a cleaning and exam.
During dental deep cleanings, our hygienists thoroughly remove the plaque and tartar above and below the gumline. By scaling and planing, they remove areas where bacteria can easily multiply. If you are due for a cleaning, call us today at 619-717-8459 to schedule.
After your teeth have been cleaned, I perform a thorough examination. I check for overall tooth and gum health, the presence of cavities, gum pocket depth, bite issues, and signs of oral cancer. If you are anxious about the dentist, we offer sedation dentistry.
Some San Diego people mistakenly believe that they can skip dental visits if they don’t notice anything out of the ordinary. This attitude is risky. Many dental problems advance silently. When the patient experiences pain (like when a root canal is necessary), much damage has been done. Gum disease, especially, often progresses unnoticed.
If you don’t have dental insurance, ask us about dental financing options. It costs far less to prevent problems than to treat them after they have become severe.
If you perform regular auto maintenance, you understand the wisdom of prevention. Don’t you value your smile far more than your car? Call Marcos Ortega DDS today to schedule preventative maintenance for your irreplaceable smile.
