Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings

All smiles need professional treatment to further reduce the risk of dental decay and gum disease. This is why six-month dental checkups and teeth cleanings are important. By allowing our team to take digital X-rays, evaluate your teeth and gums, and remove hardened plaque and tartar, we can minimize the possibility that you’ll need restorative treatment in the future. We’ll also perform a visual oral cancer screening to ensure that you have no abnormalities that require further testing.

Gum Disease Treatment

The mouth can harbor many harmful bacteria that can wreak havoc on your oral and overall health. When it attacks soft oral tissues, causing pockets to form, bone loss, and even tooth loss to occur, it’s time to turn to effective methods to combat gum disease. With scaling and root planing, also known as deep cleaning, we can target plaque and tartar, improving your gum health and preventing the spread from reaching your jawbone, surrounding teeth, and vital parts of your body.

Fluoride Treatment

Coating the front surfaces of teeth with fluoride allows for better protection against tooth decay. This natural mineral may be found in toothpaste and tap water, but cavity-prone patients often need additional help. Taking only seconds to apply and completely painless, our doctors will place this barrier onto your teeth so that they remain safeguarded in between appointments.

Dental Sealants

The chewing surfaces of your teeth are essential for maintaining a healthy, nutritious diet. Allowing you to effectively chew and digest your food, these teeth contain small crevices thanks to their pits and grooves. Although helpful when eating, these teeth can trap bacteria, resulting in cavities. But they don’t have to with dental sealants. Applied as a clear coating along the chewing surfaces, they can last up to a decade so that teeth remain protected against bacteria and decay.
