Teeth Cleanings And Dental Exams

Brushing and flossing help to maintain your oral health, but only a dental professional can properly clean and protect your teeth and gums. During your dental cleaning and dental exam appointment, Dr. Laos or Dr. Yoshikane can also:

  • Examine your mouth, spotting problems while they are small.
  • Use our VELscope system to spot any early signs of oral cancer.
  • Protect your teeth from tooth decay with dental sealants and fluoride treatments.

Gum Disease Treatment

If you see some blood when you spit after brushing or flossing, there’s a chance that you have a form of periodontal disease, or gum disease. We have several ways to treat gum disease:

  • A deep cleaning method called root planing and scaling
  • Safely removing infected tissue using a BIOLASE dental laser
  • An antibiotic treatment called Arestin® that helps control harmful bacteria

Dry Mouth Solutions

Dry mouth can be caused by a number of factors, including alcohol use, dental anxiety, and the side effect of medications. Our dentists will talk with you to discover the cause behind your dry mouth and offer solutions.

Breath Bad Treatment

Chronic bad breath can be caused by a number of factors. If you have bad breath and cannot get rid of it, Dr. Laos and Dr. Yoshikane can check to see if gingivitis, an early form of gum disease, is the cause. We can even take samples of your saliva and test it for problems.

Mouthguards For Sports

When playing sports, you wear a helmet. You should take the same precaution with your teeth or your child’s smile by using an athletic mouthguard. At Volterra Dental, we can provide custom mouthguards that will fit well and feel comfortable.
