Adult and Child Cleanings
Regular teeth cleaning is a critical part of practicing good oral hygiene. Even if you meticulously brush and floss your teeth every day, there will always be tartar and plaque buildup that only a dental professional can remove to prevent cavities, gum disease, bad breath and other dental problems.
Fluoride is a compound of the element fluorine, which is found universally throughout nature in water, soil, air and food. Existing abundantly in living tissue as an ion, fluoride is absorbed easily into tooth enamel, especially in children’s growing teeth. Once teeth are developed, fluoride makes the entire tooth structure more resistant to decay and promotes remineralization, which aids in repairing early decay before the damage is even visible. Fluoride treatments include brush-on application, foam trays, or a mouth rinse.
While brushing helps to remove food particles and plaque from smooth surfaces of teeth, toothbrush bristles often can’t reach into the teeth’s deep depressions and grooves. Sealants protect those areas and prevent food and bacteria from getting in.
Scaling and Root Planing
Although routine cleanings are done to prevent periodontal (gum) disease, scaling and root planing is a non-surgical procedure done to treat periodontal disease. In fact, this procedure – sometimes called a deep cleaning – is considered the “gold standard” of treatment for patients with chronic periodontitis.
