Do your teeth hurt? Are your gums swollen or sensitive? If left untreated, dental problems like these can lead to tooth loss and even loss of bone in your jaw. Healthy teeth and gums are the foundation of a beautiful smile. Dr. Lori Bagai and her team of professionals provide residents of Orange, California, the best in general and preventive dental care, so your teeth and gums remain healthy for life.

You may have cavities, gum disease, or other dental problems and be unaware of them. Left untreated, these problems will certainly grow into bigger issues requiring more expensive treatment to correct.

You can keep your teeth and gums healthy by getting regular dental exams. Emerging cavities can be detected early and fixed before they become larger problems. Gum disease can be found when it first starts and is easily handled.

Did you know old fillings dont last forever? Your old fillings can crack or begin to leak, leading to tooth decay. With regular checkups we can see when a filling needs to be replaced before a larger cavity forms.

Additionally, not all tooth and gum problems are easily visible. You need X-rays to find hidden problems that may be developing inside a tooth or under the gum line. Finding and fixing these problems early helps you keep a strong, healthy set of teeth for life.

Cavities are just another word for tooth decay. Left untreated, these can lead to painful toothaches and even loss of teeth. You can avoid these problems by getting your teeth checked regularly and having any cavities filled.

Do you have chipped, cracked, or broken teeth? It may not seem important now, but ignoring them can lead to bigger dental problems. By the time they start hurting, infection could have begun. In some cases, it may be too late to save the tooth.

'Dr Bagai and her staff are fantastic. I 've been going to her for years and am very pleased with the service and results. They are a very friendly group on top of it all! I highly recommend going to her.'

A root canal treatment can sound scary. But when a tooth becomes infected due to an injury or a deep untreated cavity, a root canal may be necessary to save the tooth and preserve your health. The infected tooth material must be removed to prevent the infection from spreadingpotentially even becoming life threatening.

The procedure involves removing the infected tooth material, called pulp, then cleaning and sterilizing the area. Once this is done, a sterile material is used to fill the hole and seal it against future infection.

Are your gums red and swollen, or do they bleed when you brush your teeth? This is not how your teeth are supposed to be, and maybe be signs that you have gum disease. While in its mild stages, gum disease simply causes bad breath, if left to progress to far it can even lead to losing your teeth.

Gum disease is caused by your gums becoming irritated and inflamed. Bacteria grows on a sticky substance called plaque which forms on your teeth about 4 to 12 hours after brushing. The bacteria produce acid which eats at your tooth enamel and can cause irritation to your gums. Left untreated, the plaque can spread to below the gum line and become a serious threat to your teeth.
