Dr. John Stockdale of Renaissance Dental Care in Rancho Cucamonga, CA, takes pride in providing excellent dental care for the whole family. Everyone must see a dentist this year for their oral and overall health. Regular teeth cleaning and exam appointments twice a year help prevent tooth decay and gum disease.

Regular cleanings and checkups are essential for staying on top of your oral health. When you visit your Rancho Cucamonga, CA, dentist twice a year, you are investing in your smile for a lifetime. When a tooth only has a little bit of decay, it can be saved with a small filling that won't compromise the strength of the tooth. If a tooth has a lot of decay you could need more involved and more expensive dental work like root canals and tooth replacements. Even a larger filling can compromise the strength of the tooth and lead to other problems. Keeping up with regular appointments actually means less time and money spent at the dentist overall.

At a tooth cleaning appointment, all plaque and tartar are removed from the surfaces of your teeth. Plaque is sticky bacteria that builds upon the surfaces of teeth. If it is not removed by regular brushing, it hardens and forms into tartar, which cannot be brushed away. The bacteria in plaque and tartar can cause gum disease because it irritates the gums and causes them to pull away from the teeth. You should also be examined twice a year for gum disease because it's possible to develop it without ever having obvious symptoms.

Your teeth are also flossed and thoroughly examined at a checkup. Your dentist can identify any problem areas in your mouth for you to adjust your hygiene routine for the best results. Another important part of your checkup is oral cancer screening. Your dentist examines the tissues in your mouth and throat for any early signs of cancer.

Renaissance Dental Care is dedicated to keeping your whole family in great oral health. Make sure you see Dr. John Stockdale this year for a cleaning and exam! Contact us for an appointment in Rancho Cucamonga, CA, at (909) 987-0040.

New Options to Make Your Visit More Pleasant
 
You may be like many other patients and decided to stop going to the dentist only because you didn’t like the sounds of the drill or the anxiety that the dentist caused. We understand your concerns and have different options to help you.
 
Air Abrasion – The new drill. Instead of that high-pitched dental drill, air abrasion uses aluminum oxide to remove debris and decay. It usually does not require anesthesia and is painless!
Sedatives – Used to help the patient relax during a dental visit. Sedations are a medicine that can be used during the procedure to make the patient feel relaxed and at ease.
 
Visiting Us May Be More Important Than You Think
 
Skipping on dental visits puts not just your mouth at risk, but your whole body health. Research has shown that the health of your body is equivalent to the health of your mouth. Not taking proper care of your smile can promote a range of diseases from diabetes, leukemia, oral cancers, pancreatic cancer, heart disease and kidney disease.
 
Make a change for the better and contact us today. We believe that the best interest of the patient is the only interest to be considered.
When it comes to your smile, you don’t want to put up with gaps in your teeth due to missing teeth.  While dental implants are a permanent solution to replacement of missing teeth, Dr. John Stockdale is happy to offer All-on-4 in his Rancho Cucamonga office.  All-on-4 allows Dr. Stockdale to provide his patients with an array of benefits, including:
  • Stability even in minimum bone volume
  • Immediate results
  • Improvement in your appearance
  • Long-lasting smile
  • Easy to care for teeth
  • Ability to eat what you want, when you want
Dr. Stockdale Compares All-on-4 with Dental Implants in Rancho Cucamonga
 
The All-on-4 dental implant technique utilizes only four implants per arch, while traditional implants utilize anywhere from six to eight implants, or more, in each arch.  With All-on-4 dental implants, Rancho Cucamonga patients can experience an improved procedure, as the implants are placed at an angle for increased contact by using the natural support of your bone.  There is also no bone grafting needed for most patients, unlike with traditional dental implant procedures.  So, for patients in Rancho Cucamonga, All-on-4 dental implants save time, money and discomfort.
 
Talk to Dr. John Stockdale, your dentist in Rancho Cucamonga, for more information on All-on-4 dental implants and to see if you are a candidate for this smile restoring procedure.
