Teeth cleaning is the single most effective way to remove plaque and tartar deposits and prevent more serious dental health problems. Advances in dental technologies provide a comfortable experience for the patient. A deep cleaning may be recommended if excessive plaque and tartar deposits have developed below the gum line. A deep cleaning helps prevent periodontal disease and restores gum tissues to a healthy state.
Periodontal, or Gum Disease, Treatment
Red, swollen gums are a red flag for periodontal, or gum disease. More than 80% of adults have some form of gum disease. Gingivitis, the mildest form of gum disease, treatment typically involves a thorough dental cleaning. Advanced gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, requires scaling and root planing to remove stubborn deposits below the gum line. If you suspect you have gum disease, do not delay as this can lead to more serious problems.
Fluoride Treatment for Children or Adults
Fluoride treatments, for both children and adults, help prevent tooth decay by making the tooth more resistant to acid attacks from plaque bacteria and sugars in the mouth. Fluoride treatments can also reverse early decay.
Oral Cancer Screening
In the next 24 hours, 24 people will die of oral or pharyngeal cancer. Close to 48,250 Americans will be diagnosed with oral or pharyngeal cancer this year. It will cause over 9,575 deaths, killing roughly 1 person every hour. Of those 48,250 newly diagnosed individuals, only slightly more than half will be alive in 5 years. The key to surviving oral cancer is early detection. An oral cancer screening should be completed every six months during a regular dental exam and/or teeth cleaning.
