Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings

Regular dental checkups give us the opportunity to detect any dental problems early on before they turn into major issues. Furthermore, regular teeth cleanings are essential for removing tartar and plaque buildup which cannot be done by regular brushing alone. This helps to prevent gum disease and other oral health issues. Even if you have good oral hygiene habits, the buildup of tartar can lead to gum disease or cavities, but our routine preventive dentistry services will keep you and your loved ones safe.

Gum Disease Treatment

Even though cavities get a lot of attention, gum disease is actually the most common dental problem in the world. If we notice that your gums are inflamed, sore, or bleed easily, we may recommend a deep cleaning called scaling and root planing. This focuses on removing bacteria and buildup around the roots of your teeth. For hard-to-reach bacteria, we can also use antibiotic therapy to prevent an infection from advancing or coming back.

Fluoride Treatment

There’s a good reason you’ll find fluoride in almost every oral healthcare product available—it’s proven to fortify tooth enamel and make it more resistant to decay. You’ll get a big boost of fluoride at your routine preventive dentistry appointments when we apply a special gel to your teeth that is several times stronger than any toothpaste or mouthwash you’ll find in stores. This can be especially helpful for patients who tend to be cavity-prone.
