Laguna Hills Preventative dentist

Don’t Neglect Your Smile

Visit Us for Preventive Care

Proper preventive treatments, including cleanings and oral exams, are essential to avoid common issues like tooth decay and gum disease. According to the American Dental Association, patients should visit the dentist every six months to maintain healthy teeth and gums. Routine appointments will ensure that small issues are caught early and that you maintain optimal health.

Chew on This

91% of adults have at least one cavity, and nearly 50% have gum disease. Proper preventive care can prevent both of these common oral health issues.

Brushing and flossing alone are not enough to keep your smile free of dental issues. Only professional cleanings can remove plaque from every surface of your teeth.

Most insurance plans completely cover two preventive visits per year.

We offer a $129 New Patient Special to make it easy to get the preventive care you need and start your journey with us off with us on the right foot.

A comprehensive exam, professional cleaning, and oral cancer screening are a part of every preventive visit at Stan Kimball DDS.

Keep Your Teeth Healthy

Cleanings & Exams

Teeth cleanings and exams are the best way to ensure that your teeth remain healthy and that small dental issues are caught before they become more severe. Our team of dental hygienists will clean away tartar and plaque from your teeth using special dental tools, buff and polish your teeth with a high-powered toothbrush, and floss to remove any remaining debris and keep your smile bright. By the time you leave, your teeth will look and feel great, and you’ll have peace of mind knowing that any oral health issues have been addressed by an expert.

Reverse Minor Tooth Decay

Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride is very useful for strengthening teeth, and this naturally-occurring mineral has the unique ability to promote the remineralization of enamel. It can even reverse minor cases of tooth decay (often referred to as “soft spots”). Soft spots are the first stage of tooth decay, and this occurs when the tooth structure has become weak and soft, but a cavity has not yet formed. Fluoride can be applied directly to your teeth to strengthen and restore the weak spot, preventing a cavity from forming.

Protect Vulnerable Teeth

Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are a very helpful treatment for patients who may be cavity-prone. This painless, non-invasive treatment uses a clear plastic resin that is applied to your rear teeth after they have been cleaned. This plastic is then hardened with a special UV light, forming a transparent barrier. This barrier prevents plaque, bacteria, acid and food debris from directly contacting teeth. In turn, this keeps cavities from forming.

Fight Back Against Gum Disease

Periodontal Care

Gum disease is very common, and it is caused by improper oral hygiene (though genetics can also play a role). As plaque and bacteria build up between your teeth and gums, your gums will become inflamed and infected.

The first stage of gum disease (called “gingivitis”) does not cause any damage to the teeth, but if left untreated, the condition can worsen and lead to more severe issues. Proper periodontal care, such as a deep cleaning (scaling & root planing) can help remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria, and reverse or halt the damage caused by gum disease.

Avoid Oral Injuries

Nightguards & Mouthguards

If you or your child play contact sports or participate in any activity where you are at risk of an oral injury, a custom mouth guard will help protect your mouth, teeth, and gums. Our mouthguards are comfortable and durable, and will give you peace of mind throughout the game.

We also offer night guards for those who have issues with teeth clenching and grinding. Nightguards prevent direct contact between the teeth, which prevents tooth wear and damage and protects your oral health.
