Dental Care and Emergency Dentistry in Los Angeles
At Downtown Dental
, we understand that every smile has unique needs. With this in mind, we encourage our patients to talk with us about their dental care during their examination. Of course, the roots of a happy, healthy smile are found in prevention and hygiene. At the same time, Dr. Mungcal
believes that his patients gain the greatest benefit from individualized care and support. What you may need to achieve optimal oral health may vary greatly from any of our other patients.
Two keys to oral health, which most people know, are brushing and flossing. These vital tasks should be performed twice a day, every day if dental problems are to be avoided. The way in which brushing and flossing are performed may vary from person to person. For example, individuals who live with tooth sensitivity may find that highly concentrated fluoride toothpaste like Brite Smiles or PreviDent minimize unpleasant sensations. Individuals who tend to brush a little aggressively or who already have abrasions to gums may be best served with a tool like the Rotadent toothbrush. The Sonicare toothbrush is also a good choice for gentle brushing. Antimicrobial solutions like BreathRx may be ideal for those who have a problem with chronic bad breath.
The full examination process that Dr. Mungcal performs also involves recommendations as to what a patient should use in their home care routine in order to maintain the ideal oral environment for health. Discussing dental concerns, habits, and health history allows our team to help each patient make the best choices regarding oral care products and technique for their needs.
If you have questions or concerns about your own dental care, schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Mungcal at Downtown Dental to find out if you are using the right tools for your smile. A happy, healthy smile will help you feel better about yourself and more confident in all aspects of your life!
