Dr. Jin advocates that prevention, maintenance and education are the keys to a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums.

Preventative Dental Care

Preventative dentistry is crucial to maintaining a healthy mouth. Taking care of your teeth and detecting dental problems early will help prevent the need for costly, painful treatments. Dr. Jin will design a comprehensive prevention program that is specially customized to your unique needs and smile. We provide our patients with an examination that will include digital x-rays and imaging with our state-of-the-art Intraoral camera. Dr. Jin’s preventive dental care also includes routine cleanings and polishing, and we educate all of our patients about optimal brushing and flossing techniques.

Oral Examinations

The cornerstone to Dr. Jin’s preventative dental care program is a routine six-month oral examination. These examinations will allow us to easily detect cavities and gum disease. Our precision measuring devices can diagnose dental problems including gum deterioration, bone disease, pockets around the teeth, tooth gap and plaque buildup. These measurements will guide us in providing a comprehensive dental treatment plan for our patients. Routine oral examinations are an important part of early detection that will prevent more complex dental problems from developing. They will ultimately protect you against unnecessary discomfort and will save you money.

Dental Cleanings

Dr. Jin and our staff of dental professionals provide in-depth cleanings to prevent serious gum diseases from developing. When gum tissue recedes, teeth become unstable, begin suffering from sensitivity issues and develop cavities. Studies show that gum disease can be more serious than just tooth discomfort or even the loss of one’s teeth. Gum disease has now been linked to a number of serious health conditions, including heart disease as a result of bacteria traveling to other parts of the body through the blood and lymph systems.

Heart disease resulting from plaque bacteria can be prevented with proper dental examinations, regular cleanings and daily care. Our skilled practitioners gently perform root scaling and planning as a method of removing plaque and encouraging the reattachment of gum tissue to the teeth. Our teeth cleaning treatments are performed using the most comfortable techniques available to assure you a pain-free experience. The benefits of this process are that the bacteria-producing plaque is removed, resulting in a clean tooth surface that supports healthy gums and stable teeth. This in turn helps to prevent heart disease.

Brushing and Flossing

Dr. Jin and her dental associates work hard to ensure that our patients limit oral bacterial activity, so that gum disease does not occur, or is properly managed. Brushing your teeth for two minutes twice a day, along with the use of dental floss is clinically shown to be the best way to reduce the risk of gum disease. Our patients learn the proper techniques of brushing and flossing their teeth from one of our oral health care professionals during routine examinations. These simple daily habits will effectively prevent disease and help you to avoid costly complex dental procedures.
