COMPREHENSIVE SMILE CARE

If you’re looking for a family-friendly dentist that offers general dentistry in San Mateo, CA, you’ll find convenient and high-quality care right here at Bay Star Dental General & Cosmetic Dentistry.

Hygiene Visits and Dental Examination

All new patients at Bay Star Dental would receive a comprehensive dental examination, followed by periodic exams during their hygiene visits at our facility in San Mateo to monitor and access their dental health for changes during and between appointments. Some of the things we screen for during your hygiene visits with us would include:

  • Oral cancer
  • Periodontal disease, bone loss, and tissue infection
  • Integrity of existing dental restorations
  • Oral symptoms of systemic diseases or medical conditions
  • New areas of decay
  • Bite alignment (orthodontic evaluation)
  • Bruxism and grinding
  • TMJ disorders

Gum Health

We focus our dental cleaning sessions to minimize chances of dental health problems and are designed to help you develop a beautiful and clean smile that lasts for life. As we note symptoms of periodontitis (gum disease), we offer comprehensive periodontal therapy services to halt and prevent additional infection at our facility in San Mateo.

Tooth Colored Fillings

We ensure to treat for tooth decay and perform analysis with digital X-rays to pinpoint cavities when they’re smaller and less invasive to treat. All of our dental fillings at San Mateo, CA are made from white material that matches your tooth structure, for durable yet aesthetically pleasing results!

TMJ Exams

TMJ exams are vital as the relationship between your TMJ, facial muscles, and biting patterns can lead to complications such as jaw pain, headaches, and tooth wear. As part of your evaluation at Bay Sat Dental in San Mateo, we will assess your jaw joint to ensure that its movement and range of motion are performing appropriately.

Preventative Care for Children

Professionally applied fluoride and protective sealants can reduce your child’s risk of developing cavities. Because primary (baby) teeth can decay quite quicker than their permanent counterparts, preventative care is especially important for our youngest of patients.
