Excellent Dental Care
The goal of our teeth cleanings and dental exams are to provide preventative care that will result in optimal oral health. At each six-month checkup, your Dobson Ranch dentist will perform a thorough exam and cleaning that includes the following:
- Tooth scaling, removing all plaque and tartar above and below the gumline.
- Root planing, smoothing out tooth roots to keep them attached to your teeth.
- Periodontal exam, looking for signs of inflammation and infected gums.
- Thorough review and cleaning of all teeth.
- Visual cancer screening.
- X-rays as needed.
- Cosmetic consultation upon request.
The Importance of Periodontal Exams
Periodontal disease, also known as periodontitis or gum disease, is a serious gum infection that can damage the gums as well as the jawbone. Left untreated, it can spread to other parts of the body, causing infections and physical damage to the rest of your body. While periodontal disease is preventable, if it is discovered during one of our exams, a specialized periodontal cleaning appointment needs to be scheduled. During this appointment, our dentist will use these methods and procedures to rid your mouth of all plaque, bacteria, and inflammation:
- State-of-the-art ultrasonic scalers designed to clean the root surfaces of the teeth.
- Antibiotic gels placed below the gum line that can stop the growth of bacteria and reduce the need for periodontal surgery.
- Dental endoscope, a camera that can be placed below the gum line to see the root surfaces and tooth structures.
