According to the American Dental Association, cavities are the most predominant chronic disease of childhood, despite the fact that, at the present, a lot of Americans have a great oral health and are able to keep their natural teeth throughout their lives.

All practicing dentists in the U.S. have gained a DDS (doctor of dental surgery) or a DMD (doctor of dental medicine) degree. The two degrees are basically similar, the only difference being that that some dental schools award one type of degree and others – the other. Commonly, minimum three years of undergraduate education in addition to four years of dental school are required to practice as general dentist. A supplementary post-graduate training is necessary to become a dental specialist.
What to expect at your first consultation with our dentists in Escondido, CA
During your initial consultation, our dentist will get informed on your entire health history. In this first visit, you can expect:
- A thorough dental examination: the dentist will effectuate a complete examination of the teeth, gums and oral cavity, searching for signs of illness or other issues.
- A complete cleaning: the gum line will be scrapped along and under in order to remove built-up plaque and tartar which can lead to gum disease, bad breath and other issues. Then, your teeth will be polished and flossed.
- X-rays: these are able to reveal problems which cannot be observed with the naked eye, for example, damage to jawbones, abscesses, obstructed teeth, tumors or cysts or decay between the teeth.
