Professional Dental Cleanings
While it is true that some patients battle tartar and gum disease more than others, even the most diligent patients cannot reach every surface of their teeth with brushing and flossing alone. A professional dental cleaning removes tartar and bacteria from the hard-to-reach places such as between your teeth.
Regular dental cleanings can protect you from periodontal disease and allow our hygienists to note any significant changes in your gums that may indicate a serious medical issue.
Our hygienists are gentle, thorough, and professional. They can share home care practice tips, product recommendations, and even nutritional suggestions that can improve your oral health. They work with our patients closely so that they achieve and maintain the best oral health possible.
Enamel-Strengthening Fluoride Treatments
Some people are more prone to dental decay than others, and it tends to run in families. The bacteria that cause decay and gum disease are actually contagious! Practicing good dental hygiene is beneficial for your entire family.
Bacteria create an acidic environment in your mouth that softens your protective tooth enamel. Fluoride treatments can help strengthen your enamel and keep it strong. Many people think of fluoride treatments as something for children. Adults who experience decay, who experience dry mouth, who have had extensive dental restorations or who have gum recession or tooth sensitivity may benefit from regular fluoride treatments.
Protective Dental Sealants
Dental sealants work by providing a protective barrier between food particles, bacteria, and the chewing surface of your teeth. Some people have exceptionally deep grooves in their teeth that brushing alone cannot clean. We can apply a dental sealant to those grooves and keep out unwanted decay!
Applying dental sealants is fast, easy, and affordable. They last for many years and can be replaced, if necessary.
Dental sealants are a thin plastic material that will not affect the appearance of your smile.
