Gum Disease Screening
A dental check-up, which involves a thorough examination of your teeth, gums and mouth, will prevent minor problems from becoming major ones. Dentist in Redondo Beach recommends six monthly check ups with your dentist, which when supported by a good at-home routine, will help to keep your mouth healthy.
Nowadays, a regular examination uses both modern technology and the dentist’s up-to-the-minute knowledge and skills, all in a virtually pain-free environment.
What does the dentist need to know?
At the first consultation, your dentist will want to find out about your health, both oral and general. The dentist needs to be aware of your medical background as it may impact the way that they treat and diagnose issues – diabetes, for example, can increase the risk of gum disease and may need different anaesthesia. Certain medicines, meanwhile, can cause dry mouth, which can increase your risk of cavities. Importantly, all your medical information will be kept confidential.
It’s also a good time to discuss any dental phobias – for some patients, fear of the dentist starts in childhood after a bad experience. The dentist will take this on board – in fact, just talking about these issues can actually help relieve them.
After the first consultation, a full-check-up will take place, followed by a thorough treatment plan.
What happens during a Dental check-up?
At each check-up, the dentist or dental hygienist will ask about any difficulties since your last visit. As you settle into the dental chair, a check-up, scaling and polishing takes place.
Check-up: Your dentist or dental hygienist will check for cavities and to see if there’s any plaque – that’s the clear, sticky layer of bacteria – or tartar on your teeth. Next, the dentist checks the gums, seeing if the spaces between your teeth and gums are shallow. Gum disease becomes apparent when the spaces become deeper. The dentist also checks the tongue, throat, face and neck, looking for any signs of trouble or swelling as well as detecting any signs that might indicate oral cancer.
Scale & polish: Plaque or tartar build-up needs to be removed, so the dentist or hygienist uses special instruments such as an ultrasonic scaler to painlessly knock loose any larger pieces of tartar, and provide deep cleaning above and below the gum line – all with a tickling vibration. Once all the surfaces are smooth, they are polished to remove stains from the teeth using a slow-speed handpiece with a soft rubber cup that spins. Inside the cup is a polish comprised of an abrasive toothpaste-like material and fluoride – this powerful mix is spun around on the soon-to-be smooth and shiny teeth.
Do I need an X-ray?
Depending on your oral exam, dental history and any risk for developing cavities, a dental X-ray may be required. An X-ray can give the dentist a good view of your jaw alignment, any decay between teeth as well as identifying any impacted teeth, abscesses, or cysts on the roots of your teeth.
What happens after the check-up?
After the examination, the dentist will discuss any treatment recommendations, covering everything from tooth brushing techniques to your diet and nutrition, alcohol intake, and smoking.
If there are any complications, a return visit may be required for restoration work, such as a filling or crown. For more complex work, the dentist may need to refer you to a specialist such as an orthodontist, periodontist, oral surgeon or an endodontist. At all stages, the dentist is happy to talk about different options – good communication is another vital skill in his or her repertoire.
When’s the next Dental check-up?
After completing the check-up, your next visit will be confirmed. Dental check-ups are generally recommended every six months though it can be different for each individual depending on their oral health needs. Beach Smile Dental will remind you with a text message or phone call closer to the time so you’ll be well prepared.
I am very disappointed with this dental office. This office is inadequate. They will deceive you. I will not recommend them under any circumstances. I came into their office today first, Jessy their very unprofessional manager did not let me choose the filling that was priority. Jessy will lie to you regarding treatment that you obviously need and say that you don’t, completely unacceptable. Dr. Parducho then proceeds to fill my wisdom tooth that is set to be extracted and was not in the treatment plan to be filled. This action should never happen. They also tried to take X-ray’s every time I came in this shows carelessness to the patient’s health with the excessive use of radiation. This dental office is clearly corrupt. Speaking to dentist after procedure was denied for guilty reasons. I then asked for my treatment plan to be printed and given to me Jessy refused to do so. I being an honest professional in the dental field myself providing a treatment plan to our patients is a must. The dentist and all staff acted below the applicable standard of care.read more
Zero stars for the worst dental experience of my life. Jessy is probably the most disrespectful degrading dental assistant I've ever had to deal with. She made me wait for 1.5 hours in the lobby. I came on time to my appointment and two other people came after me, yet they were seen before me! When I asked why and it obviously seemed like she had some preference to those customers...and her reasoning was oh they were in pain...BS. Dr. Parducho is a great dentist yet it's unfortunate her front desk staff (the first person you contact at a dental office and sets the tone) is unprofessional and condescending. It's unfortunate I was looking forward to coming here because a coworker recommended them.
Do yourself a favor and find a dental office that will respect you and make you feel good after leaving the office.read more
The worst dental appointment ever. I was warned by another person while waiting in the lobby. They are very unprofessional and had none of my paperwork together so I waited for almost an hour before they took me. I scheduled an appointment for cleaning and all the dentist did was take x-rays and examine my teeth. Don't waste your time.read more
I loved Dr. Parducho gentle spirit and very authenticity. Highly skilled and knowledgeable professional . The interaction between the staff and patient care is Amazing!. I didn't feel like I was just another patient but a real person. Thank You! I left building smiling :)

I got to know her . She likes cofee ☕

Miss Jessy & Dr. Parducho!
5 out of 5 Stars!!!!
The fear from my dentistry past had caused me to neglect my dental health for too many years. You & Dr. P provided THE MOST comforting care before, during and after all the work that needed done. I couldn't be more grateful for your kindness, compassion, and work to get my mouth in its best health. And now- I'm happy to say, you've both given me the confidence & care to keep these teeth & gums a top priority!
Thank You for everythingread more

Just moved to town and looking for a good dentist for my daughter. Based on reviews I tried them. Both times they made an appointment and then were 30 minutes late. The second time they made an appointment for procedure that wasn’t covered by my insurance (and I have great insurance - this never happened at my old dentist) and then didn’t tell me until they handed me the bill. Needless to say there will not be a third time with them.read more
