Dr. Roya Shoffet of Royal Dental Practice in West Hills, Los Angeles, California, rolls out the red carpet for all her patients. She is proud to practice highly personalized “concierge” dentistry. Additionally, Dr. Shoffet has developed considerable expertise in caring for the unique needs of seniors. As such, she also provides the “royal treatment” by offering mobile dentistry. We bring care to you and others with limited mobility and challenges to getting the routine services necessary to their oral and overall health.
As a dentist accepting new patients, Dr. Shoffet also encourages her community to schedule checkups at least once every three months. The science supports this; plaque is constantly forming on the teeth, and researchers have found that disease-causing bacteria can return to “pre-treatment” levels in just 9-11 weeks following therapies such as “deep cleaning” (Scaling and Root Planing) to resolve active gum disease. So, we are big advocates for regular exams, screenings, and professional cleanings fundamental to dental checkups.
Of course, there are exceptions to this rule. For some pediatric patients, the three-month checkup may not be necessary. As with everything at our practice, Dr. Shoffet tailors care to the specific needs and characteristics of the patient. These include risk factors for dental disease, such as smoking or other lifestyle habits and behaviors, and the presence of comorbidities or other diseases (like diabetes).
Everyone needs professional care, no matter how well they brush, floss, or otherwise take care of their teeth and gums. Stubborn plaque build-up (tartar or calculus) can only be removed with specialized instruments and a skilled hand. Furthermore, professional dental expertise is essential to spot oral problems at their earliest stages. By the time patients notice that their gums are bleeding or wince when they drink sweet or cold beverages, the damage has likely occurred that requires potentially costly and aggressive restorative dental treatment.
To preserve the teeth in the most conservative, economical, and hassle-free manner, Dr. Shoffet detects and intervenes with problems like enamel erosion, gingival inflammation, and pre-cancerous lesions before they cause potentially irreversible damage that can alter your overall health and life. These problems can be missed at their earliest stages because their symptoms are so subtle – if symptoms are present at all.
