Preventive Dental Care Treatment:
Teeth cleaning – to remove plaque, stains, and tartar. Training to take care of your teeth is always part of this appointment.
Oral examination – After your cleaning, your doctor will do an oral exam to look for gum disease, cavities, occlusal disease-jaw problems, and to evaluate your bite. During the exam, we will go over any concerns you may have about your dental care. We will discuss treatment options, and costs, and come up with a personalized plan for dental health and a beautiful smile.
Fluoride treatments – Less than 100 years ago dental disease was the number one killer, it is still a major cause of illness and death worldwide. Today it is again on the rise in children. However, with a dental health maintenance program that includes simple and painless topical fluoride treatments, dental disease is completely preventable.
Sealants – Using sealants is like fingernail polish for the teeth. It’s a tough composite material that fills the grooves of permanent teeth. It prevents food and bacteria from becoming trapped and causing decay.
Scaling therapy – Scaling is the process of removing tartar deposits and plaque from the tooth, both above and below the gum line. The Center for Disease Control says if you have severe gum disease, you have three times the risk of stroke and heart attack as people with healthy teeth and gums. Regular scaling is another important part of preventing dental problems as you get older.
Non-Surgical Gum Disease Therapy – CO2 laser gum treatment is noninvasive with no cutting, and no pain, and is significantly less expensive. If you already have gum disease, we can treat the problem by using non-surgical, CO2 laser gum treatment. This procedure, combined with bone growth procedures, eliminates the need for gum surgery and supports the natural healing of advanced gum disease.
Whatever your dental condition, we can put you back on the path to dental health and feeling good about your smile.
