Regular Dental Visits

Oral Examinations

Make an appointment to visit us for your next checkup. Dr. Kitagawa will be able to examine your teeth and diagnose any potential problems that you may not know about. Even if you have been keeping up with proper oral hygiene through daily brushing and flossing, problems can still occur. When these mild problems are detected early, it is more likely that they will be easily corrected. Leaving problems untreated for a long time can cause unnecessary pain, discomfort, the need for extreme dental procedures and can cost you a lot to fix.

Dental Cleanings

Visit us at Gateway Dental Care for a dental cleaning bi-annually so that we may professional clean your teeth. Teeth cleanings will help remove plaque from your teeth. Plaque buildup can lead to complications such as cavities and gum disease.

Brushing & Flossing

Brushing and flossing is a preventative dental measure that you can practice each day at home. It is important to brush your teeth twice daily to prevent food and plaque from sticking to your teeth. Flossing is also an important tool that we recommend using once a day in order to remove plaque and clean your gum line.
