We understand that going to the dentist can make you feel uncomfortable. However, you need not feel concerned. Attending semi-annual checkups with us can actually help you be more comfortable by preventing and avoiding dental problems, and we can help you keep your smile looking good too.

We take the time to carefully examine your mouth to make sure no problems are occuring. We check for signs of gingivitis, cavities or other various concerns so that we can help you stop them before they can cause you discomfort. We will also take x-rays to help us catch things we cannot see with our eyes, such as abscesses or issues with your jawbone, all so we can help you get them fixed.

We can also take the time to provide a cleaning service so you can have a good-looking smile. We do this by scraping off the plaque and tartar that your toothbrush cannot seem to get. We make sure to remove plaque and tartar from your teeth and gums, which can help you avoid cavities, gum disease and even bad breath. We also take the time to polish your teeth. The polish can help you remove some of the more stubborn stains on your teeth and help them be more smile-ready.

You need not worry about visiting the dentist, because we can help you keep your teeth in good order and help you prevent uncomfortable dental problems. If you would like to receive a checkup, we can provide you with one here at Mesa Dental in Santa Barbara, California. Dr. Walter Dukes and our dental team are here to serve you. You need only call 805-963-1222 to set up your visit.
