Professional Adult Cleanings
We have 4 Registered Dental Hygienists in our office. All are highly trained in periodontal care including laser assisted periodontal therapy and bacterial reduction therapy to provide you with thorough, gentle cleanings. We offer a range of periodontal treatments, including antimicrobial agents and scaling and root planing in which the infected surface of the root is cleaned. Anesthesia and Nitrous oxide are available for your comfort. Your visit to our office is an important part of your program to prevent gum disease and keep your teeth for a lifetime. A clean, healthy mouth is vital in promoting your overall health, and we help you manage your dental health through routine exams and cleanings.
ARESTIN® is an effective time released antibiotic treatment that comes in powder form. This powder is placed inside an infected periodontal pocket directly to the affected area. It provides a much more localized form of treating bacteria. Anyone suffering from periodontal disease who is not allergic to this type of antibiotic may be a good candidate for Arestin treatments.
The first “regular” dental visit should be just after your child’s third birthday. The first dental visit is usually short and involves very little treatment. We will gently examine your child’s teeth and gums. Digital X-rays may be taken to reveal decay and check on the progress of your child’s permanent teeth under the gums.
We may clean your child’s teeth on the same day as the initial exam, and apply topical fluoride to help protect the teeth against decay.
Most important of all, we will review with you how to clean and care for your child’s teeth.
