At the office of Dr. Mircea Mitu, we focus on prevention and early intervention to help you and your loved ones maintain healthy, beautiful smiles. We recommend bringing your family in twice a year for your Manteca teeth cleaning, examination, oral cancer screening and treatments designed to help protect the health of your smile. Our highly skilled professional team tailors treatment to meet individual needs, keeping patients comfortable and relaxed throughout every step in care.
Tooth decay and gum disease are caused by plaque, which is a sticky film that harbors bacteria that feed on sugar. As a by-product of metabolizing dietary sugars, the harmful bacteria in plaque produce acids, which eat away at tooth enamel, forming small holes in your teeth. If plaque is allowed to accumulate below the gum line, it infects and inflames the tissues supporting the teeth, leading to periodontal disease. While brushing, flossing and limiting your intake of sugar are important steps you can take each day to protect your teeth against the detrimental effects of plaque, to complement your daily homecare routine, we also recommend a biannual Manteca teeth cleaning. A professional cleaning allows us to thoroughly remove any residual plaque buildup from difficult to reach areas between your teeth and gums. We also offer suggestions as to how you can improve your oral hygiene routine at home. To help our youngest patients maintain cavity-free smiles from the start, we offer dental sealants and periodic fluoride treatments, as well as the educational tools your child needs to establish excellent oral hygiene habits. For patients of all ages, our dentist will perform a comprehensive examination, using advanced digital radiography, as needed. Periodic checkups allow us to diagnose and treat oral health problems from their outset, for the most straightforward and effective course of care.
When you visit us at the office of Dr. Mircea Mitu for your Manteca teeth cleaning and exam, you can expect personalized, compassionate care from an experienced dentist and staff. Our comprehensive preventive program is designed to meet the needs of each member of your family. To learn more or to schedule a checkup, call today.
