Dental Teeth Cleanings

Lasers help in sterilizing the gums, and they also lower the risk of bacterial infections. The Diode laser reduces bacteria inside your gums, which can prevent it from entering your bloodstream. Eliminating this bacteria will prevent the destruction process that it produces on the bone surrounding your teeth and in turn, help us save your teeth.

Contact your dentist in Torrance at (310) 792-0049 for more information about the dental laser.

The short answer is YES. Good oral care at home and professional teeth cleanings are the building blocks for your overall health.

Did you know that one out of every two American adults aged 30 and over has periodontal disease? 

One of our highly skilled hygienists will examine your gum health and take x-rays to evaluate the level of bone around your teeth and alert you if you might be suffering from gingivitis (early gum disease). Dr. Boulos will make the appropriate diagnosis and recommendations to preserve and save your teeth for a lifetime.

There may be areas that you cannot access appropriately during flossing, and one of our hygienists can give you excellent recommendations on best practices and best tools to keep your mouth healthy.

Your bite and the way your teeth align can negatively affect your gum and bone health. Dr. Boulos will evaluate these conditions.

The health of your mouth is ever-changing. Our goal is to help you stay healthy, and regular teeth cleanings and checkups every six months will help us accomplish that.

At South Bay Infinite Smile, our goal first and foremost is to provide you with a welcoming and friendly dental experience.

Your first dental appointment in Torrance will start with a friendly greeting with our front desk team, who will conduct a COVID screening and check you in. If you have not filled out your new patient forms through a download from our website, you will be handed the forms and can fill them out in the reception area.

You may ask for a dental cleaning at your first visit, and we will accommodate that request. One of our dental hygienists will take your dental history, x-rays, check your gum health, and check for any periodontal disease.

She will then recommend the level of dental cleaning that you need to Dr. Boulos, who will introduce herself and conduct a thorough examination of your teeth and overall dental health. She will discuss your concerns and make any necessary treatment recommendations.

If you need dental treatment, one of our friendly and knowledgeable treatment coordinators will review your treatment cost and insurance benefits.

We look forward to getting to know you on your first visit! Call South Bay Infinite Smiles at (310) 792-0049 to schedule your first appointment.
