Teeth Cleaning for the Whole Family
Getting your teeth professionally cleaned at our office is hugely beneficial to you and your family’s oral health. Our dental hygienists will start the teeth cleaning process by performing a physical exam on your mouth. This way, we can catch any signs of gingivitis or other potential concerns. You can think of the teeth cleaning process like a check-up for your teeth and gums. This check-up will also involve:
Using a small mirror as a guide, the dental hygienist will use a scaler to get rid of plaque and tartar around the gum line, as well as in between the teeth.
Whether you’re already an avid flosser or not, a dental hygienist can get deep between your teeth and locate any potential trouble spots where you may tend to bleed at the gums.
As the last step of the teeth cleaning process, we will coat your teeth with a fluoride treatment that will work to help fight against cavities for several months.
If you come to us with a cavity, Dr. Garrett can remove the decay and then “fill” the area where the decaying material once lived. Fillings can also be used to repair teeth that have been broken, cracked, or worn down. We utilize tooth-colored composites for restorations that not only deliver on aesthetics, but on durability as well. If you have old, existing silver fillings, we can safely remove this filling type and replace it with a safer and more practical solution. Our general dentistry solutions put our patients first, and we will educate you on our practices so you can make an informed decision before agreeing to any treatments.
If your back molars are particularly prone to cavities, we offer dental sealants to safeguard these teeth from developing any further decay. Dental sealants are a thin coating that is painted on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth to prevent decay, as well as provide a protecting shield. This shield is highly effective, hindering food particles and plaque from becoming stuck in the depressions and grooves of your molars. It will only take a few minutes to seal each tooth and can last several years before a reapplication is needed.
