- Use a timer, or play a song that lasts two minutes while you brush your teeth twice a day.
- Brush softly. Brushing too hard, especially with a hard tooth brush can ruin the enamel on your teeth.
- Change your toothbrush every 3 months. Change it when you’ve been sick, too.
- Pamper yourself with a high-tech rotary toothbrush. They clean better than ol’ manual brush.
- Chew gum; just make sure it’s sugar free! If you can’t brush your teeth in between meals, gum can help keep your teeth cleaner than if you did nothing at all.
- Floss, floss and floss. Brushing your teeth isn’t enough. If you really want to surprise us, floss BEFORE you brush to help dislodge anything below the gum line.
Philosophy of Care Dr. Vatan and the staff at Vatan Dental Group believe in the importance of preventative care. We focus on keeping patients throughout CA in good oral health so that they can live a full, healthy, and enjoyable life that is free from oral pain. This starts by educating our patients on what they can do to stay healthy at home. In our family dentist office we recommend that patients eat a healthy diet that consists of green leafy vegetables, lean protein, nuts, dairy products, and crunchy fruits and veggies. Eating these foods along with drinking water can keep teeth healthy and make them stronger. By simultaneously reducing sugar intake, patients throughout Los Angeles can reduce their risk of cavities.It is also important to brush and floss throughout the day. Instead of waiting for bedtime to brush teeth, carry a small toothbrush and use it after meals and snacks. This makes it possible to remove sugar and bacteria from the teeth and gums before it has the opportunity to turn into acid that can attack the teeth. This preventative step can greatly reduce a persons’ risk of getting a cavity or gum disease. Dr. Vatan understand the importance of taking these steps at home and will spend the time necessary to educate and inform patients so that they can stay healthy overall. Education, after all, is essential for living a long and healthy life. Check out what others are saying about our family dental services on Yelp: Family Dentist Los Angeles.

Los Angeles Family Dentist OfficeVisits to Our Family Dental Office We welcome patients throughout the Los Angeles CA area to schedule an appointment with our family dentist office by calling 310-906-1300. Everyone should have their teeth cleaned and examined at least twice a year so if it has been awhile since you visited a dentist, don’t delay in scheduling an appointment. During these ongoing dental exams Dr. Vatan will make sure that your teeth are thoroughly cleaned and look for any signs of cavities or gum disease. If any are found, they will be treated right away before they can spread and create additional problems. Early detection and treatment are important for reducing any pain that may come as a result of an infection. For example, if gum disease is caught early, it can be treated with a thorough deep cleaning. If, on the other hand, it is left undiagnosed, surgery may eventually be required in order to correct it. Understanding the importance of these regular dental exams, the staff at Vatan Dental Group work to make each patient extremely comfortable. This includes being welcoming and kind while performing dental treatments in a way that is painless and relaxing. Patients throughout California visit our dentist office because they trust us to do just that – take care of their teeth and gums, gently. While the majority of our patients are local and come from the 90045 area, we see patients from throughout the state that are looking for expert, gentle dental care.
