Through the use of digital x-ray imaging and scanning we are able to see dental problems long before our patients can feel them. By catching dental disease at the earliest stages, we are able to treat the conditions much less invasively and much more affordably.
Dental cleaning is a preventative treatment that is important for maintaining good oral health. A dental hygienist performs the cleaning to remove plaque and tartar buildup. We also conduct thorough examination at each dental cleaning to identify potential problems that may arise. It is recommended that patients visit their dentist for a cleaning at least every six months. When plaque and tartar begin to build up on teeth, the bacteria causes gum inflammation,called gingivitis. When gingivitis goes untreated, bone loss around teeth can develop (Periodontitis). Our staff is highly trained in periodontal treatments including root planing and scaling to remove buildup above and below the gum line.
Early prevention is the key to protecting your child from serious dental problems in the future. Our doctors goal is to make sure every child has a positive and nurturing experience that will allow them to grow up to be adults without fear in dentist.
