Checkups Prevent Gum Disease

Gum disease, or periodontal disease, is very common, affecting approximately four out of every five adults. It occurs due to the accumulation of plaque around the teeth, which hardens into tartar, creating an optimal environment for bacteria to thrive. These bacteria then attack the gums, leading to inflammation and infection.

We offer a range of treatment options for periodontal disease, addressing different phases of the condition, from mild gingivitis to severe cases involving gum recession and tooth loss. Our treatments includes  simple procedures like tooth scaling and cleaning, as well as more extensive approaches such as removing infected gum tissue and repositioning the gums. Rest assured, we are equipped to provide the most effective solutions to address the issue in the best possible manner.

What Does Check up and Clean Consist of?

The dental check-up and cleaning session typically ranges from 30 minutes to one hour. Throughout this duration, you will recline in a comfortable dental chair as we carefully assess your teeth. As part of this process, you can anticipate the following steps:

Cavity Check

Scaling Clean

A dental professional, such as a dentist or dental hygienist, utilizes a scaler to eliminate plaque and tartar from both your gum line and the spaces between your teeth. The amount of tartar present in your mouth directly impacts the duration required to thoroughly remove it from a specific area.

Dental x-ray

X-rays

Dental x-rays allow us to identify areas of decay that may not be easily visible, particularly in the spaces between your teeth. Decay can also develop beneath existing fillings, crowns, or bridges, and this type of decay is more likely to cause toothache as it is closer to the nerve of the tooth. These hidden pockets of decay can only be detected through the use of x-rays. Additionally, x-rays are utilized to examine any loss of bone between your teeth.

Fluoride

Fluoride varnish is a dental procedure aimed at preventing tooth decay, slow it down, or stop it from getting worse. It is composed of fluoride, a mineral that has the ability to fortify the tooth enamel, which is the outer protective layer of teeth.
