By getting to know you and focusing on your concerns, we can create a treatment plan that is tailored to fit your needs and goals for a whole and healthy smile.
Regular Exams and Dental Cleanings
The goal of regular dental exams and cleanings is to stay a step ahead of oral health problems. If you do have minor problems, routine cleanings and exams will help us catch and treat them while they are still small and easy to fix.
Periodic dental exams allow us to monitor your oral health, look for any problems that may be developing, and note any changes since your last visit. This is also a good time to share your questions or concerns and to talk about any problems you may be having.
No matter how conscientious you are about your oral hygiene routine, only routine dental cleanings with a skilled hygienist can completely remove the buildup of plaque and tartar on your teeth. That’s why we follow the guidelines of the American Dental Association and recommend twice-yearly cleanings for you and your family.
Gum Disease Treatment
Periodontal disease (gum disease) is a serious threat to your oral health and overall well-being. It’s an infection that attacks the gum and bone around your teeth. Without treatment, periodontal disease can cause your teeth to loosen and eventually lead to tooth and bone loss.
If we find that you have gum disease, we will tailor your periodontal care to meet your specific needs. The type of treatment we choose depends on the extent of disease we find present.
In some cases, more frequent professional cleanings may be enough to stop gum disease in its tracks. However, more advanced levels of periodontal disease – gingivitis or periodontitis – will require a deep cleaning by our hygienist. We want you to be fully informed about your periodontal care, and we’ll explain your treatment plan in detail and answer any questions you may have.
Positive Steps to a Healthy Smile
Looking after your oral health is a positive thing, and we want you to feel good about following through with your routine appointments. We stress patient education because we know that when you are informed, you are more likely to take the necessary steps to protect your oral health.
Dental cleanings are one of the most important services we provide because they allow us to stay one step ahead of periodontal disease and other oral health problems. Please contact Glendale View Dental, and a friendly member of our team will help you set up your next appointment for a dental cleaning and exam.
