Did you know that your gums are the cornerstone for the health of your body?
Gum disease can lead to much more than tooth loss. It can lead to major systemic health problems, from strokes to cancer.
That’s why your regularly scheduled hygiene visits are so important. Even with the most diligent home care, sticky plaque can turn into calculus or tartar, a hard mineralized layer that holds dangerous bacteria close to your gums. This bacteria is not only a major contributor to gum disease, but it also a systemic hazard.
Our comfortable and ultra-effective cleaning methods include the use of the Cavitron ultrasonic cleaner. This state-of-the-art instrument cleans both above and below the gum line, using oscillating sound waves to gently vibrate the tartar away from your teeth. The Cavitron unit is so gentle, vibrating at the speed of sound, that we even use it to administer completely painless deep cleaning and gum disease therapy.
To maintain oral health, it’s very important that you stay up to speed on the condition of your teeth, so that if problems are detected, they can be treated early to avoid developing more serious issues. We provide comfortable, gentle hygiene cleanings, specifically to detect, deter and prevent gum disease. If we find a cause for concern, we may recommend a deep gum cleaning to remove tartar below the gum line, smooth out surfaces where plaque builds up and eliminate bacterial infection.
