Dental Cleanings and Screenings
During routine dental visits, we provide:
- Dental Cleanings: Our dental hygienists provide thorough cleanings to remove bacteria buildup. They can also perform scaling and root planing, two treatments that help prevent gum disease. Scaling and root planing remove plaque found on and beneath the gums. These treatments also stop gum recession by smoothing down the tooth roots.
- Digital X-rays: Compared to traditional x-rays, digital x-rays reduce the level of radiation by 80 percent. Digital x-rays also make it easier for our dentists to view the teeth and gums. We use x-rays to diagnose dental problems and plan treatments. If we need to refer you to a specialist, we can easily send the digital x-rays.
- Gum Disease Screenings: Gum disease is a common yet highly damaging oral health issue. Some early signs of gum disease that we look for during a screening include red, swollen, and irritated gums. Patients who already have gum disease may have receding gums and, in severe cases, loose teeth.
If you ever have any questions or current concerns that you would like to discuss, please let us know. Please remember to bring your photo ID, dental insurance card, and preferred payment method to your first dental appointment.
