Check-Ups and Cleanings
One of the core foundations of long-term dental health is routine preventative care. The American Dental Association recommends that patients schedule a professional cleaning every six months in order to maintain optimal oral hygiene. Consistent exams also enable your dentist to identify any potential concerns early.
Scaling and Root Planing
Scaling and root planing—also sometimes referred to as deep cleaning—is a technique used to treat gum disease. Scaling involves the removal of plaque and tartar from both the surface of the tooth and the hard-to-reach areas below the surface of the gum line. Root planing removes plaque and tartar from the tooth roots. The roots can then be smoothed over to help prevent further plaque accumulation while facilitating the reattachment of the gums to the tooth surface.
Fluoride treatments have been a mainstay of dentistry for decades, helping patients maintain strong enamel and protecting the teeth from cavities. During your visit, your dentist will administer the carefully-formulated fluoride treatment, which usually only takes a few minutes. For optimal results, you may be asked to avoid eating or drinking for at least 30 minutes after your appointment.
