Maintenance

  • It only takes twenty four hours for plaque that is not removed from your teeth to turn into calculus (tartar)!  Daily home cleaning helps control plaque and tartar formation, but those hard to reach areas will always need special attention.

    Once your periodontal treatment has been completed, your dentist and dental hygienist will recommend that you have regular maintenance cleanings (periodontal cleanings), usually four times a year.  At these cleaning appointments, the pocket depths will be carefully checked to ensure that they are healthy.  Plaque and calculus that is difficult for you to remove on a daily basis will be removed from above and below the gum line.

    In addition to your periodontal cleaning and evaluation, your appointment will usually include:

    • Examination of diagnostic x-rays (radiographs): Essential for detection of decay, tumors, cysts, and bone loss.X-rays also help determine tooth and root positions.
    • Examination of existing restorations: Check current fillings, crowns, etc.
    • Examination of tooth decay: Check all tooth surfaces for decay.
    • Oral cancer screening: Check the face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, cheek tissues, and gums for any signs of oral cancer.
    • Oral hygiene recommendations: Review and recommend oral hygiene aids as needed. (Electric toothbrushes, special periodontal brushes, fluorides, rinses, etc.)
    • Teeth polishing: Remove stain and plaque that is not otherwise removed during tooth brushing and scaling.

    Good oral hygiene practices and periodontal cleanings are essential in maintaining dental health and keeping periodontal disease under control!

    “I love having white teeth and making sure my smile looks as good as it can be. When I go to see Dr. Toubia to whiten my teeth he’s very sweet and quick! Unlike other doctors who make you wait for a while, Him and his staff make it a point to get you in and out while being professional and making me feel comfortable. Most importantly I admire his honesty and the time he takes to explain minor procedures. Going to get a cleaning is a bit easier because Dr. Toubia and his hygienists create a kind hearted and hard working environment. Thank you Dr. T!”

He walked me through the steps of what my procedure will be like and could not have been more straightforward and proactive. I will always feel comfortable in his hands!”

    “Dr. Toubia and his staff are very knowledgeable, professional and friendly. I have owned dental practices for the last 6 years in Texas and recently moved back to Los Angeles and was in desperate need for a top of the line dentist.
    Dr. Toubia was thorough in his explanation of what I needed, answered all of my questions and his work was exceptional. I felt no pain whatsoever and the process was completed in a timely fashion. Having experienced pain for over 6 months, this was such a relief.”

    Michael M • Dallas TX

    “I have been going to Dr Toubia for 20 years. I drive over an hour to get there since I moved away from Beverly Hills ten years ago.
    Dr Toubia is unquestionably the best Dentist in Beverly Hills. Everything he does is  100% with the upmost precision and done to the absolute highest standards. His work is done with longevity in mind. He is the only Dentist I have ever been to where every step of the procedure is done perfectly to the highest and strictest quality.”
