Preventative Care Everyone should have a professional dental cleaning at least every six months. It is important to have the plaque and calculus (tartar) removed in order to keep the gums healthy. We will do a thorough dental exam including oral cancer screening, caries detection, occlusal evaluation, and any necessary radiographs (X-rays). Measurement of the gum tissue (probing) is performed yearly to continually check for or monitor periodontal (gum) disease. Preventative care is very important to keep your mouth healthy.
Periodontal (Gum) Disease
The signs of periodontal disease are bleeding gums, loose teeth, sore gum tissue, and bad breath. Periodontal disease occurs when plaque and bacteria build up on the teeth. This bacteria is a local infection that causes the gum tissue to become swollen and bone to be lost around the teeth. Periodontal disease can be treated with in-depth cleanings called scaling and root planing. For your comfort a local anesthetic, or novocaine is used to make the procedure painless. Periodontal Disease that is left untreated can result in tooth loss.
Periodontal disease affects 3 out of 4 adults
Whitening Over time teeth loose their luster and brightness. Professional tooth whitening is a simple way to bring back that younger looking smile. Both in-office whitening and custom take-home trays are available to help you achieve that brighter, whiter smile.
Missing Teeth Missing teeth can be replaced with implants, bridges, or a removable denture. Implants replace the root of the missing teeth while bridges use the adjacent teeth for support.
Ask Dr. Calamel which option would be best for you.
