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?

Preventive care in Berkeley

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.
