Teeth cleanings with our unique warm water system and oral exams are at the heart of preventive dentistry. Your routine 3 to 6 month visits allow Dr. Leah Stempfle to track your oral health, catch problems like cavities early, and recommend the appropriate treatment plan for improving your dental health. During your appointment, a hygienist will clean with warm water, buff, and floss your teeth, then Dr. Stempfle will examine your teeth to look for signs of common oral health issues. Most patients also get x-rays once per year. Cleanings and oral exams are fast, affordable, and the best way to keep your mouth healthy in San Diego.
Fluoride treatments can strengthen your teeth or even reverse the first stage of tooth decay. They're usually done along with a teeth cleaning or oral exam. Dr. Stempfle will simply paint a fluoride-rich solution onto your teeth, leave it in place for a few minutes, then rinse it away with our unique warm water system. Fluoride attracts minerals that help rebuild and strengthen your teeth, which reduces your risk of cavities.
Dental sealants are an option for any cavity-prone patient. They consist of a thin layer of transparent resin, which is applied to your rear teeth in a liquid form. Dr. Stempfle will harden this liquid with a special UV light. This forms a strong protective barrier. This barrier prevents food particles, acid, and bacteria from contacting your teeth. This, in turn, virtually eliminates the risk of cavities in your treated teeth.
We specialize in periodontal (gum) care in San Diego. If you have gum disease, we will typically recommend deep cleaning (also called “scaling & root planing”) as the first step for treatment. In this procedure, Dr. Stempfle will clean deeply between your teeth and gums to eliminate bacteria, plaque, and tartar. Treatment usually takes 2 appointments over a period of 2-3 weeks, since one-half of your mouth is cleaned at each appointment. Along with good at-home oral hygiene, deep cleaning can be enough to halt or reverse the progression of your gum disease.
Oral cancer often goes unnoticed by general physicians until it has spread to the rest of your body. That’s why Dr. Stempfle offers oral cancer screenings as part of every six-month visit at Bespoke Dentistry. She will look for bumps, lesions, and other potential signs of oral cancer. Oral cancer is rare, but if she finds something that looks concerning, Dr. Stempfle and our team will make sure you get the help you need.
