Cleanings & Prevention

A preventive program is a cooperative effort by the patient, dentist, and dental staff to preserve the natural dentition and supporting structures by preventing the onset, progress, and recurrence of dental diseases and conditions. Preventing dental disease starts at home with good oral hygiene and a balanced diet. It is continued in the dental office by the efforts of your dentist and dental hygienist to promote, restore, and maintain your oral health.
Prevention also includes regular dental exams, cleanings, and x-rays. Sealants and fluoride are also great preventive treatments that help protect the teeth such as:

    Periodontal Disease

    The word periodontal means “around the tooth”. Periodontal disease attacks the gums and the bone that support the teeth. Plaque is a sticky film of food debris, bacteria, and saliva. If plaque is not removed, it turns into calculus (tartar). When plaque and calculus are not removed, they begin to destroy the gums and bone. Periodontal disease is characterized by red, swollen, and bleeding gums.

    Four out of five people have periodontal disease and don't know it! Most people are not aware of it because the disease is usually painless in the early stages.

    Not only is it the number one reason for tooth loss, research suggests that there may be a link between periodontal disease and other diseases such as, stroke, bacterial pneumonia, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and increased risk during pregnancy. Good oral hygiene, a balanced diet, and regular dental visits can help reduce your risk of developing periodontal disease.
    Signs and symptoms of periodontal disease:
     
    • Bleeding gums – Gums should never bleed, even when you brush vigorously or use dental floss.
    • Loose teeth – Also caused by bone loss or weakened periodontal fibers (fibers that support the tooth to the bone).
    • New spacing between teeth – Caused by bone loss.
    • Persistent bad breath – Caused by bacteria in the mouth.
     
    • Pus around the teeth and gums – Sign that there is an infection present.
    • Receding gums – Loss of gum around a tooth.
    • Red and puffy gums – Gums should never be red or swollen.
    • Tenderness or Discomfort – Plaque, calculus, and bacteria irritate the gums and teeth.
     
     

    Restorations

     
    It's great news that the incidence of tooth decay has significantly diminished over the years due to the use of fluorides and an increase in patient awareness. However, teeth are still susceptible to decay, infection, and breakage and sometimes need to be restored back to health. Through improved techniques and modern technology, we are now able to offer more options for restoring a tooth back to its normal shape, appearance and function.
    Should your teeth ever require a restorative treatment, you can rest assured knowing we will always discuss with you the available options, and recommend what we believe to be the most comfortable and least invasive treatment. Providing you with excellent care is our number one priority when creating your beautiful smile. We offer the following:
     
    • Composite Fillings
    • Crowns (Caps)
