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.


Sealants are a protective coating—traditionally made from plastic and other biocompatible dental materials—that can be applied over the chewing surface of the tooth in order to help prevent cavities. They are most commonly applied to the molars, which can be particularly prone to cavity development due to their recessed position within the mouth. Sealants can also sometimes be applied on teeth that have already been afflicted by decay in order to prevent the further spread of infection.

Periodontal (Gum) Treatments

In addition to scaling and root planing, Harmony Dental Care also offers a number of other periodontal treatments. We take your comfort and satisfaction very seriously, which is why we have invested in advanced laser dentistry technologies to make treatment safer and more effective. Our advanced Waterlase® system can help sanitize, seal, and protect the gums during and after treatment for gum disease. It can also reshape and recontour the gums for enhanced aesthetics.
