We understand the struggle of having dental anxiety, but it’s normal. This reason shouldn’t make you skip your dental visit or extend your treatment period. When you visit us for your consultation, we will make sure to help you stay comfortable and relaxed during the treatment process. Feel free to ask us any questions you have about dentistry in general.

You need to see your dentist at least twice a year. During these regular dental checkup sessions, our dentist will perform a thorough dental examination which also includes dental cleaning that involves removal of plaque, tartar, and cavity-causing bad bacteria from your mouth to keep dental problems at bay. Through this preventive measure, you can keep your mouth healthy for a long time.

The most common signs that show you are developing a dental issue are:


  • Mouth sores
  • Knocked-out, broken, or fractured teeth
  • Dry mouth
  • Pain in the jaws
  • Red, swollen, or bleeding gums
  • Experiencing bad breath or halitosis
  • Swelling on the face near the affected tooth
  • Sensitivity
  • Have bad taste in the mouth
If you are someone who visits the dentist only when a dental emergency or other oral condition bothers you, then it would be best to change that habit. Through semi-annual and bi-annual dental checkups, we can keep your oral health in check, which can save your time and money to undergo other expensive restorative procedures.

Bad breath or halitosis is considered an embarrassing condition. But you need to know that everyone experiences it in the morning. In healthy people, the main cause of bad breath tends to be microbial deposits on the tongue, especially in its back. You can get rid of this bad breath through simple brushing and tongue cleaning. Other causes may be food containing odor-causing compounds like garlic, onions, etc., poor oral hygiene habits, gum disease, cavities, dry mouth, tobacco products, dieting, dehydration, hunger, or certain medical conditions. You can simply prevent bad breath by following the steps below:

  • Practice good oral hygiene at home
  • Visit your dentist for regular dental checkups.
  • Quit the habit of smoking/chewing tobacco
  • Stay hydrated
  • Use over-the-counter antiseptic rinses
Through regular flossing, you can remove the cavity-causing bacteria in your mouth and reduce bad breath. Even though you thoroughly brush your teeth, some food particles may still be stuck between your teeth; this needs to be removed using dental floss.

Follow the steps below to keep cavities away:


  • Brush your teeth for about two minutes.
  • Avoid using a hard-bristled toothbrush.
  • Floss between your teeth once before going to bed.
  • Keep a check on your sugar intake.
  • Use water to rinse your mouth each time after having food.
  • Go to your dentist for regular dental visits.
Yes, we do offer veneers in our office. We use high-quality veneers here in Sacramento to help our patients restore their oral issues like too-stained or discolored teeth, uneven gaps between teeth, chipped or worn teeth, slightly crowded teeth, misshapen teeth, and teeth that are too small or large.

Smokeless tobacco doesn’t make it good for your oral health. It is also considered as much harmful as other tobacco products. Over time, you may develop dental problems such as:

  • A lump or white patch forms
  • Experience sore throat for a long time
  • A sore that doesn’t heal
  • Difficulty while chewing
  • A restricted jaw or tongue movement
  • Risk of oral cancer
It is recommended to change your toothbrush once after every three or four months as it begins to fray. If you use an electric toothbrush, then make sure to change toothbrush heads frequently. After brushing your teeth, kill the germs in your toothbrush and keep it clean by rinsing it with hot water.
