Dental Confidence Or Caution

Preventative dentistry

Whether you are one of those who goes willingly to the dentist or are hesitant about getting work done, the team at Peninsula Center of Cosmetic Dentistry in Los Altos CA wants you to make and keep regular appointments for cleanings and checkups.


Regular dental appointments are important because they help keep your teeth and gums healthy. For most patients, we recommend a visit to our office every six months. We occasionally need to see a patient more often.




There are two parts to a typical dental appointment: a cleaning and a checkup.


During a cleaning, one of our dental hygienists inspects your teeth and gums, and uses special tools to remove any plaque and tartar that have built up. It also includes polishing your teeth, which removes any surface stains. The last step is flossing.


During a checkup, the dentist checks your overall dental health. If there are any issues, like a cavity or signs of gum disease, we’ll usually schedule a follow-up appointment. It will be planned for your convenience, of course, but sooner is better.


What you do between your six-month visits is really important. Plaque is constantly forming on the teeth, so we recommend – and we cannot say it strongly enough – that you brush and floss your teeth every day. Ideally, you’ll do it twice.


You have a lot of toothpaste choices. The flavor is up to you, but be sure to choose one with fluoride.


By seeing us twice a year, and maintaining a good dental health regimen at home, you’ll have confidence that your teeth and gums are in great shape. At Peninsula Center of Cosmetic Dentistry in Los Altos CA, our services include general and cosmetic dentistry. Patients from Daly City, Milpitas, and Saratoga also come to us for dental implants. If you haven’t already, contact us today!
