94705 family dentist
Dental care for all ages means exactly that. It doesn’t mean treating everyone the same, regardless of their personal concerns or the specific issues that are typical of their age group. What is certain is that everyone, from kids to seniors, is treated as the valuable individual they are here at the practice of Jennifer Cho DDS FAGD. And your needs and preferences, along with those of your child, will be tended to with focused attention and gentle care.
Kids aren’t just small adults when it comes to their teeth. From the time that those first baby teeth begin to erupt, through to when they start to fall out on their normal schedule, and right up through the growth of adult teeth to replace and supplement those baby teeth, our 94705 family dentist is right here to provide the treatment and guidance that will give him or her the best opportunity to be cavity-free, avoid gum disease, and to transition safely and without complications from one set of teeth to the other. Along the way, our 94705 family dentist exhibits the patience and the gentle touch that will assure her or him of positive experiences. That is key, because most adults who are afraid or nervous about dental care became that way due to less than ideal dental situations in their youth. Speaking of adults, we haven’t forgotten you. At all stages of your adult life, there are ways to maximize your oral well-being so that you can have a full set of strong teeth, free of pain and complications to the greatest extent possible.
There is no better time than right now to reach out to our office and arrange a visit for you or your child to be seen by our 94705 family dentist. Why not do it right now, while you’re thinking about it?
Berkeley root canal
The most obvious symptom for needing our Berkeley root canal is a toothache. There are others, of course. And at the office of Jennifer Cho DDS FAGD, we want you to be aware of not only the symptoms, but the causes and the ways that the problem can be treated. It’s a procedure that has a high success rate, about 90%, and can keep your tooth remaining strong and viable for many years to come.
What causes lead up to our Berkeley root canal? The pulp of your tooth is located inside, next to the nerve. It is ordinarily protected by the layers of enamel and dentin, which serve as a barrier to prevent bacteria from getting in. A cavity, loose or lost filling, or chipped or cracked tooth may allow infection to take hold in your tooth’s pulp. As for symptoms, pain that can be mild, moderate, or severe is typical when you apply pressure to the tooth or try to chew with it. Also common is sensitivity to hot and cold foods and drinks. You might also notice gum tenderness or tooth discoloration. When you do experience any of the listed indications, you should be sure to reach out to us for a prompt appointment. There are two treatment options. The least appealing one is to extract the tooth, which is only done if our Berkeley root canal is not likely to yield a positive outcome. It’s non-surgical, and the process is to gain access to the inner tooth, remove the injured pulp and nerve, clean and disinfect the canals, and then seal the canals off to avoid future infections. After healing, a crown will be placed to restore the tooth to its full function and size.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us when you think you may need root canal. The chances of a good result are much higher when you get timely care.

Dull, stained, discolored teeth do not have to be your destiny. With a simple, safe, effective process done either here or by you at home, we at the office of Jennifer Cho DDS FAGD restore the type of smile you’ll be eager to show off.
If you’ve seen the products that line the shelves of drug stores and supermarkets, such as whitening toothpastes, mouthwashes, and strips, you might be wondering what sets apart the treatment you get at our 94705 dental office. Those over-the-counter options may be good for helping to maintain whiter teeth once you already have them, but they are not of much value in turning stained teeth that way to begin with. Some store-bought whitening contain abrasive ingredients, so they can actually end up harming your tooth enamel. Our 94705 dental office provides whitening that maintain the protection of your teeth. Here’s the way it works: when you have our in-office method done, a whitening gel is applied to your teeth, and it chemically breaks down the stains and discolorations, leaving only your natural white smile showing. The same is true when you do it on your own, except that you will come in and have impressions taken, which will be used by the dental lab to fashion whitening trays that fit you perfectly. When you wear them for two or three hours each night, the gel is released. And while our office whitening is completed in an hour or less, doing it at home gives you more gradual, but no less satisfying, results. You can even combine both options to maintain the outcome for longer. Ordinarily, you can expect the effects to last for a year or maybe longer before re-treatment is required.
Say goodbye to a smile you’re not happy with. Say hello to our 94705 dental office and the whitening we offer. Simply contact us to make an appointment.
Berkeley dental office
Preventive care is essential in helping you to avoid unnecessary treatments, pain, and other complications. At the office of Jennifer Cho DDS FAGD, we Berkeley dental office recommend a regimen of brushing and flossing at home, in conjunction with a dental examination and teeth cleaning every six months.
Dental plaque is where tooth decay and gum disease can be traced back to. It’s a form of bacteria that feels like a film. It erodes tooth enamel and irritates gum tissue, for starters. Sugar is a catalyst for the formation of plaque, so limiting your consumption of it is highly advisable. Brush upon waking, and again at bedtime, with that second round combined with vigorous flossing. This strategy will remove the majority of plaque in your mouth. The remainder, the amount that stays out of reach, hardens into tartar. For that, you need our Berkeley dental office. A professional teeth cleaning eradicates all residual plaque and tartar, including what was hidden from your at-home oral hygiene. In addition, early stage gum disease is stopped from progressing and its effects subside thanks to a teeth cleaning at our Berkeley dental office. Why twice per year? Waiting too long puts your teeth at risk for developing large cavities before they can be filled. That increases the chances for toothaches, infections, root canal, and extractions. Furthermore, your gums can become inflamed and infected, with alarming signs like persistent bad breath, bleeding when you brush, and receding gums following soon after. Your gum and bone tissue can become atrophied, and your teeth may become loose. But with preventive care, you can stop that from happening.
While it’s on your mind, why not contact our Berkeley dental office right now? Arrange a time to come in for your six month dental exam and teeth cleaning. Keep tooth decay and gum disease to a minimum, and halt their advancement.
Here at Jennifer Cho DDS FAGD, we know that you have many choices when it comes to choosing a dentist for you and for your child.

We provide a wide range of services in family and cosmetic dentistry including Invisalign, Veneers, Laser Treatment, Teeth Whitening, Teeth Cleaning, Fillings, Crowns and Bridges, Implants, Extractions, Night Guards, and emergency services.
Providing family care isn’t always the same at every dental office. For our Berkeley dentist, it means focusing on the specific issues that are important to each age group. Children need a strategy and have areas of concern that are entirely different than that of adults. Similarly, our senior patients require a greater concentration on certain areas of oral wellness more than others. It’s not enough to just accept patients of all ages. You also should feel as if you are seeing a specialist; someone who only deals with your age group. That’s how our Berkeley dentist makes you feel. Furthermore, you can depend on kindness, gentle care, and respect. We think that such traits should be universal, but the more we speak to patients who have found us after having disappointing experiences elsewhere, the more we realize that it is not. We have built our reputation, slowly and deliberately, over a long period of time; patient by patient, and appointment by appointment. And we realize that we’re only as good as our most recent patient and appointment. It’s simply not possible for us to rest on what we did yesterday. And that’s because today there is someone who needs top dental care, and the benefits of the most recent advancements in the field. It is our job to provide that. We take that responsibility very seriously.
Depend on our Berkeley dentist for all your needs when it comes to having healthy, strong teeth and gums. Call us to arrange an appointment.
