Who Do I See to Receive a Dental Cleaning or Gum Treatment?
One of the services that our practice offers is professional teeth cleaning. While you may think that brushing and flossing your teeth on a daily basis is enough, there are places where toothbrushes and floss can’t reach. These places can be dealt with by a professional cleaning. It’s important to receive regular professional cleanings because plaque, the film of bacteria that forms over your teeth whenever you eat or drink, can eventually harden into calculus. This hard material will break down the enamel of the teeth, leading to cavities and other problems. Having your teeth cleaned by a professional once or twice a year can help to keep built-up calculus and difficult-to-reach plaque at bay.
Professional dental cleanings can also help you to avoid gum disease. That’s because the bacteria present in plaque and calculus can also attack the gums. The early stage of gum disease is known as gingivitis. This problem is characterized by swollen, sensitive and red gums. The gums also tend to bleed whenever you brush or floss your teeth. Gingivitis should be treated immediately. This is so it will not develop into advanced stage gum disease, also known as periodontal disease. Trying to ignore periodontal disease will lead to tooth loss and bone damage. If you are in need of gum disease treatment, get in touch with our staff to schedule an appointment with one of our dentists.
Is There Anything You Can Do to Treat My Bad Breath?
If you’ve been embarrassed by chronic bad breath, you are not alone. More than 25% of Americans suffer from this issue. In the medical world, bad breath is known as halitosis. It is usually caused by the foods we eat, poor dental hygiene and tooth decay. No matter what the underlying cause of your halitosis is, our dentists are here to help. We can provide you with at-home oral hygiene recommendations, professional cleanings and specialized treatments that will rid you of your bad breath issues once and for all. If you would like to learn more about how to eliminate your halitosis, book an appointment for a dental exam today!
Why Are Oral Cancer Screenings Necessary?
An oral cancer screening is necessary because oral cancer is a deadly disease. Oftentimes, it does not present any symptoms until the disease has already spread to other parts of the body, making it more difficult to treat. The good news is that oral cancer is usually easily treated when it is in its early stages. This means that early detection is the key to successfully treating the disease. An oral cancer test performed by your dentist during a regular dental exam is the best way of finding the disease early on. At your initial visit, our dentist will perform one of these screenings on you. We typically recommend that our patients over the age of 18 receive oral cancer screenings on a regular basis.
