Professional Dental Cleaning
Everyone over the age of four or five should visit the dentist for a professional hygiene appointment twice per year. Our gentle dentists will inspect your gums for periodontal disease, the leading cause of tooth loss for American adults. The dentists are specially trained to detect, deter, and treat gum disease. We prefer to help you maintain optimal oral health so that you never have to worry about gum disease. However, if you develop periodontal problems, we're here to help you.
If we find cause for concern, we may recommend that you change your oral healthcare routine or the products you use at home. We may also suggest a deep cleaning, which involves:
- Scaling to remove calculus and tartar from above and below the gum line
- Scaling and Root planing to smooth rough root surfaces where plaque builds up
- Arestin antibiotic treatment to kill bacterial infection
If you have not scheduled your dental checkup lately, be sure to call us now to make your appointment! Children as young as two should visit the dentist, and by age four or five, a child should have regular dental checkups.
