Great dental care is important for healthy, beautiful teeth, but did you know that taking care of your smile is one of the best things you can do for your overall health? Recent studies have revealed a strong link between the health of your mouth and your general well-being, especially your cardiovascular health.
Daly City dentist Dr. Raymond Jone provides comprehensive general dentistry with your long-term oral and overall health in mind. He is committed to caring for your smile now and well into the future, so he addresses all of the important aspects of dentistry (preventive, restorative, cosmetic, and even periodontal care) to help you enjoy a lifetime of healthy and confident smiles.
Quality preventive dentistry protects you from more serious dental problems in the future and reduces your risk of existing problems recurring. Most serious dental problems can be avoided with routine cleanings and checkups.
During a standard cleaning, our hygienist will gently remove plaque and tartar (hardened plaque) from the surface of your teeth. She’ll also polish your teeth and floss to test the condition of your gums. Dr. Jone will then perform a thorough examination, including a visual assessment, an evaluation of your current restorations, a review of any X-rays that were taken, and a screening for early signs of gum disease and oral cancer.

Patients can look younger and feel more confident with convenient treatment options in cosmetic dentistry.
Cosmetic Dental Services:
According to the National Institutes of Health, half of American adults currently have some degree of gum disease. The mild stage, known as gingivitis, is characterized by red, swollen gums that bleed every time you floss. If it’s caught early enough, gingivitis is completely reversible with in-office treatments and proper home care. Left undiagnosed, it can progress to more serious periodontal disease, which can result in tooth loss, infections, and an increased risk of heart attack and stroke.
In the past, the tried-and-true treatment for gum disease was surgery. Dr. Jone can treat many cases with less-invasive techniques, including local antibiotics, deep cleanings, and laser gum therapy.
If you’re tired of hiding your smile due to missing teeth, or if your dentures are uncomfortable and don’t function properly, dental implants can give you a new, beautiful smile that looks, feels, and functions like your natural teeth. Stop covering your teeth or avoiding social situation because of embarrassing missing teeth and get back to laughing, talking, and eating your favorite foods again. Think you could benefit from dental implants? Daly City dentist Dr. Jone can help!
If you’re missing teeth, recovering from a dental injury, or struggling with a chronic dental condition, preventive care might not be enough to keep your smile looking and functioning its best. Restorative dentistry can make it easier to enjoy the everyday things we love, from talking and smiling with confidence to eating our favorite foods. Dr. Jone provides a number of restorative treatments that will have you smiling, laughing, and eating your favorite foods again in no time!
Restorative Dental Services:
Our practice realizes that some patients need help relaxing during their dental visit, whether it is a routine cleaning or a full mouth reconstruction. Therefore, we proudly offer valued options in sedation dentistry to eliminate your anxiety. Choose from oral conscious sedation or nitrous oxide sedation, which are both safe and effective methods to ease your mind during dental treatment. Adults and children can also take advantage of our advanced DentalVibe technology, which makes your dental injections virtually painless.
