No matter how often you brush and floss, plaque and tartar deposits can still build up on your teeth. A professional teeth cleaning is the single most effective way to remove these deposits and prevent them from causing you more serious problems like periodontal disease.
A deep cleaning may be recommended if excessive plaque and tartar deposits have developed below the gum line. Deep cleanings, also known as scaling and root planning, involve a two-part process: first, the stubborn deposits are removed, and the root surfaces are smoothed. A deep cleaning helps restore gum tissues to a healthy state.
2) Night guards
Patients who grind and clench their teeth at night might not realize the significant amount of damage this seemingly innocuous habit causes. Because most patients struggle with bruxism while they’re asleep, and it’s not always easy to help patients stop. That’s why we offer nightguards to protect teeth and prevent patients from unconsciously damaging their dentition. We create custom-made mouth guards to fit your mouth only, creating a barrier between each row of teeth. They are worn every night and keep teeth healthy.
3) Dental Sealants
Sometimes, teeth need a little extra protection to stay whole and healthy. Dental sealants are an excellent option for young people who have deep grooves in the biting surface of their molars which make them susceptible to developing cavities. The application process typically takes just a few minutes and can last up to ten years , providing protection for teeth.
4) Fluoride Treatment
For patients who are prone to tooth decay, topical fluoride treatments help fortify teeth against potential damage. Fluoride treatments are a fast, effective way to strengthen teeth. You simply apply the solution as part of any regular dental check up and the fluoride will work to attract other fortifying minerals to strengthen tooth enamel during the months between checkups.
