Your mouth is a home to countless bacteria. Thankfully, keeping this under control is a manageable task. Taking care of your teeth is one of the main things you need to do to keep your mouth healthy. By brushing and flossing every night or going in for a routine cleaning and examination, you can avoid numerous health problems. The doctors at Tri City Dental Care of Cerritos provide the necessary general dentistry services needed to have a beautiful, healthy smile.

Regular dental care is a must. That’s why a thorough routine cleaning is something you should do every six months. This will remove the plaque and buildup that accumulates on your teeth. Sometimes, x-rays need to be taken to help detect possible cavities in between teeth that cannot be seen by the naked eye. High tech digital X-rays have one tenth of the radiation old style film radiographs had.
Our state of the art practice will be able to give you one of the most thorough dental exams you have ever experienced. We have 3D technology (Galileos), digital radiographs, and VELscope technology to not only check for decay and gum disease but other pathology that normally not seen in traditional exams.
The main advantage of the 3D X-ray scan is its exceptional informative value. A diagnosis can often be established for findings which conventional imaging techniques would not detect. Dentists receive a complete and comprehensive image of the jaw situation. This increases diagnostic accuracy and allows various oral and maxillofacial, orthodontic, ENT and implantology treatments.
VELscope® Vx technology is changing the way oral mucosal examinations take place. The VELscope® Vx handheld device emits a harmless, bright blue light which is used to inspect the mouth and tongue. The device is sensitive to abnormal tissue changes and the distinctive blue-spectrum light causes the soft tissue (oral mucosa) of the mouth to naturally fluoresce. Healthy tissues fluoresce in distinct patterns that may be visibly disrupted when tissue undergoes an abnormal change (which can occur in the oral mucosa for a multitude of reasons), such as when associated with dysplasia or oral cancer.
