There is more to your smile than a nice-looking set of teeth. A significant amount of research points to connections between oral health and the heart, lungs and brain.

Routine check-ups and cleanings
The routine care that you give to your smile is one of the cornerstones of your overall health and wellness. We support you in the care of your teeth and gums by performing in-depth examinations two or more times a year. Most people can schedule preventive dental visits every six months. However, in cases of oral disease such as periodontitis, we may request to see you more frequently. In addition to observing teeth and soft tissues of the mouth, the routine exam also involves screening for oral cancer.
Hygiene appointments are vital for the removal of plaque, which may lead to cavities and gum disease. Our gentle approach is tailored to keep you as comfortable as possible. In addition to general cleanings, our experienced team performs deep cleanings to address periodontal pockets around teeth, scaling, and more.
The 3 stages of gum disease are gingivitis, periodontitis, and advanced periodontitis. Gingivitis is caused by toxins irritating the gum line as a result of plaque buildup. Signs and symptoms of gingivitis includes swelling, sensitivity, and bleeding of the gums during brushing and flossing. Gingivitis can be easily reversed through professional care and good home oral hygiene.
Periodontitis is categorized by irreversible bone loss that results from untreated gingivitis. The gums may begin to form a pocket below the gum line which traps food and plaque. Dental treatment and home care can help prevent from further damage, but at this stage, the results are not reversible. Advanced periodontitis is when the fibers and bones supporting the teeth destroyed. This may cause teeth to shift or loosen. Teeth may have to be removed depending on how advanced the disease has become and if treatments are not effective. You can begin by preventing gum disease with good oral health.

One of the best ways to prevent cavities in posterior teeth at the back of the mouth is to apply dental sealants. This comfortable preventive treatment involves the application of a liquid solution. When this substance dries to a durable plastic, it seals deep grooves and pits in which food debris and bacteria may collect. Dental sealants may last as long as five years. This non-invasive procedure is suitable for patients of all ages.
