It is estimated that nearly 65 percent of all dental procedures are either diagnostic or preventive. By placing a strong emphasis on oral health and hygiene, we can help you avoid the progression of oral diseases. Routine visits to discuss the overall health of your mouth are strongly suggested in order to examine your teeth, gums, and other structures. Professional cleanings are the cornerstone of oral disease prevention.
In many respects, your oral health can be seen as a mirror of your general health. Some dental problems may reflect issues in other parts of your body, and vice versa. For example, untreated oral infections can lead to poorer control of diabetes, an increased incidence of cardiovascular disease, and complications during pregnancy.
Total dental care from top to bottom
At Oceanside Gentle Dentistry, we diagnose, treat, and manage your overall oral health care needs, including gum care, root canals, fillings, crowns, veneers, bridges, and preventive education. We recommend a visit at least once every six months for prevantive services and basic oral check-ups and otherwise, whenever you have a concern about your oral health. Keeping up with the recommended schedule of preventative treatment and practicing effective oral hygiene at home are the two best ways to prevent dental disease and keep your smile looking bright and healthy for the rest of your life!
One symptom of daily stress is grinding your teeth. Over time, this can lead to headaches, damaged teeth, jaw pain, and even TMJ, all of which results in moderate to severe discomfort for potentially the rest of your life. A Custom Nightguard can be vital in stopping you from grinding your teeth. Your professionally-created Custom Nightguard is formulated to fit comfortably over your teeth (and only your teeth). Our Nightguards are thinner and much easier to wear for hours at a time, especially when compared to clunky, less reliable ones you might buy at the store. In fact, most patients say they barely even notice their Custom Nightguards when they wear them…even when sleeping.

When it’s time to get in the game, don’t let inferior Mouthguards slow you down. Our Sports Mouthguards offer superior breathability and allow wearers to communicate with teammates unencumbered. Not to mention extreme comfort and protection (plus the sleek styling that will complement any uniform), our Sports Mouthguards are every coach’s favorite.
