01 Feb Our Preventive Checkups And Cleanings
Our team wants to help you enjoy good oral health and strong smiles, which is why we take a preventive approach. With our regular checkups and cleanings, we can help you avoid issues that threaten smile stability, such as tooth decay and gum disease. At our holistic dental office in North Dallas, we’re ready to help your smile stay strong with a preventive approach to dental care, so you can smile with confidence and avoid issues like cavities and gingivitis.
We recommend a dental checkup every six months for patients of all ages, so our team has the chance to inspect your teeth for signs of trouble, such as tooth decay, gingivitis, gum disease, and more. To make a diagnosis with precision and accuracy, our team will employ the Carivu system, which uses a light to highlight areas of decay and demineralization. Our team will also screen for oral cancer, as the earlier this is identified, the more effective the treatment. We also want to talk about proper oral hygiene habits at home to lower your risk of tooth decay and gum disease!
Removing Harmful Buildup
In the same visit, our team will conduct a dental cleaning. The procedure allows us to remove all plaque and tartar from the teeth with professional-grade tools, such as an ultrasonic scaling device. We then polish the teeth to make it more difficult for plaque and tartar to adhere to the surfaces before your next six-month visit. This is essential for fighting bad breath, teeth stains, cavities, and even gingivitis and gum disease.
If you have warning signs of gingivitis or gum disease, such as sore, red gums that recede or bleed easily, then we may recommend a gum treatment to manage the issue and protect your smile from worsening symptoms. With a deep cleaning, also known as a scaling and root planing, our team will remove buildup with the same tools as a cleaning, but we will also remove buildup and bacterial pockets from the roots and beneath the gum lines. Afterward, we can help manage the disease with traditional cleanings every three to four months.
If you have any questions about our approach to preventive dentistry, or if you would like to schedule your first checkup and cleaning of 2024, then please contact our team today to learn more. We want to help you smile with confidence and enjoy optimal oral health once again!
