Prevention-Oriented Dentistry

tooth decay pictures at https://www.mysandiegosmiles.com Are you a San Diego area parent of young children? Do you want them to develop better oral hygiene habits than you did when you were young? Perhaps you have a beautiful smile and want to prevent tooth decay. Many San Diego people have a mouth full of fillings and don’t want to add another one to their collection.

At Marcos Ortega DDS, we have a prevention-oriented philosophy of dental care.

Your first step toward dental health begins with a prevention consultation with cosmetic dentist Dr. Marcos Ortega.

San Diego dental patients of all ages need to start with an exam to determine their current status. Your dental condition is influenced by your dietary habits, previous dental work, physical health, medications, lifestyle and family history. After a comprehensive analysis, Dr. Marcos Ortega can establish a decay prevention plan just for you.

A prevention plan is a multi-faceted approach designed to maintain optimum dental health. It involves affordable preventative services at Marcos Ortega DDS. Twice-yearly exams reveal early problems before they progress to bigger problems needing procedures such as dental implants. Deep cleanings prevent a multitude of serious dental issues for our Mission Hills, Mission Valley and Bankers Hill patients who faithfully keep their regular cleaning appointments.

Oral health cannot be maintained solely in our office. Daily brushing and flossing is essential. A healthy diet is necessary and will deliver benefits to your whole body – not just your teeth.

If you suspect you have a cavity or gum disease, call us at 619-717-8459 before it gets worse. We can successfully treat your current problems and restore your dental health. In addition, we will set you on the path toward a healthier future.
