Professional Dental Cleaning

Professional dental cleanings (dental prophylaxis) will include a dental exam and the following:

  • Removal of calculus (tartar): Calculus is hardened plaque that has been left on the tooth for some time and is now firmly attached to the tooth surface. Calculus forms above and below the gum line and can only be removed with special dental instruments.
  • Removal of plaque: Plaque is a sticky, almost invisible film that forms on the teeth. It is a growing colony of living bacteria, food debris, and saliva. The bacteria produce toxins (poisons) that inflame the gums. This inflammation is the start of periodontal disease!
  • Teeth polishing: Remove stain and plaque that is not otherwise removed during tooth brushing and scaling.

PERIODONTAL DISEASE (DEEP CLEANING )

Being diagnosed with periodontal (gum) disease is very common among adults in the U.S.  The effects of periodontal disease can range from something simple, like gum inflammation, to more serious issues that results in major damage to the soft tissue and bone that support the teeth.

The good news is that you have options. How you gum disease progresses or heals depends a great deal on how well you care for your teeth and gums every day, through regular brushing and flossing habits.

Dentures & Partial Dentures

A denture is a removable dental appliance replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissue. They are made to closely resemble your natural teeth and may even enhance your smile.

Dentures are very durable appliances and will last many years, but may have to be remade, repaired, or readjusted due to normal wear.

Reasons for dentures:

  • Complete Denture - Loss of all teeth in an arch.
  • Partial Denture - Loss of several teeth in an arch.
  • Enhancing smile and facial tissues.
  • Improving chewing, speech, and digestion.
