At the office of Christopher T. Nichols DDS, we provide comprehensive preventive care to help your family maintain optimal oral health. To keep your smile healthy and vibrant, we encourage biannual visits to our San Francisco dentist office, for checkup visits and professional cleanings. Our friendly, experienced dentist and team make checkups informative and engaging while providing your family with the quality care and educational tools needed for a lifetime of excellent oral health.
A complete and effective oral hygiene regimen involves brushing, flossing, limiting your intake of sugary foods and beverages and visiting our San Francisco dentist office twice a year. Cleaning and caring for your teeth each day is crucial in protecting your teeth and gums from dental disease. A periodic professional teeth cleaning allows us to thoroughly remove any residual plaque, tartar and debris from areas between the teeth and gums that your toothbrush and floss may have missed. We also use a checkup and hygiene visit as an opportunity to teach you techniques to improve your routine of brushing and flossing at home. For pediatric patients, we strive to establish a strong foundation for a lifetime of oral health and recommend dental sealants and fluoride treatments, which offer an added layer of protection against tooth decay. At every checkup visit, patients of all ages receive a comprehensive examination of the teeth, gums and the surrounding tissues in and around the oral cavity, assisted by advanced digital radiography, as needed. Periodic examinations allow us to diagnose cavities, periodontal disease and other oral health problems in their earliest stages, for the most straightforward and effective course of care.
Our San Francisco dentist office utilizes the most advanced technology and techniques to halt the onset and progress of conditions that may adversely affect your oral health. At the office of Christopher T. Nichols DDS, we make every checkup a positive, educational experience for you and your loved ones.
