Teeth Cleaning & Exams
Our dental hygienists are specialists in the promotion of a clean mouth and smile, to preserve dental and oral health. During a teeth cleaning and exam, we will examine the mouth for evidence of decay or trauma, as well as symptoms of developing gum disease or oral cancer. We may also take x-rays at this time. Our goal is to keep the teeth and their surrounding structures in good health before extensive treatment is needed. We take the time to educate our patients on how they can improve their dental hygiene with best oral health habits.
Fluoride is an element that strengthens the enamel. Strong enamel provides defense against decay and cavities. Fluoride can be found in tap water and in several foods, but most people do not get sufficient fluoride in their diets. When needed, our team provides patients with fluoride treatments to ensure that the enamel is maintained.
Gum irritation can lead to periodontitis, which is a condition that affects the surrounding tooth structures and can lead to tooth loss. During cleaning appointments, we will also examine and clean the gums. When necessary, we perform scaling and root planing to clean and remove bacteria from below the gum line. This helps prevent the development of periodontitis.
Extractions & Oral Surgery
When a tooth is severely decayed, has faced extensive trauma, or is impacted, it may need to be extracted, or removed. After the tooth is removed, we will discuss options for replacing the tooth, which may include dentures, a bridge, or dental implants.
