Regular oral exams and X-rays are critical to be sure your teeth and gums are healthy as the dentist can see many things you can’t. Don’t wait until you have problems to come in for a checkup!
Professional teeth cleanings are essential in keeping your teeth healthy and free of plaque. While they may feel or appear clean, your teeth accumulate plaque and disease-causing bacteria in between teeth and under your gums where only a hygienist can clean them. Get your dentist cleaning by a dental hygienist today at Family Plus Dental Centers.
Deep Scaling and root planing are sometimes necessary treatments to resolve periodontal (gum) disease. These treatments remove bacterial and calculus deposits and allow improved healing of the gums.
Sealants are a bonded protection applied to the surface of the teeth to seal the crevices where decay most commonly occurs. This inexpensive preventive dental treatment staves off cavities, dental fillings and more serious problems later. This can go a long way in fighting dental problems that may occur later in the child’s development and should be considered for all children before problems arise.
Oral cancer screenings are vitally important for early detection of oral cancer. Family Plus Dental Centers can give you a thorough exam to detect any oral abnormalities that may indicate cancerous growths. Remember, the earlier cancer is detected, the better the chances of saving your life.
Our dentists at Family Plus Dental Centers can give you effective fluoride treatments to help strengthen the outer layer of the enamel of your teeth and fight cavities. Fluoride applications after teeth cleanings typically make dental work last longer and can help to prevent tooth decay.
Dental X-ray examinations provide valuable information that helps your dentist evaluate your oral health. With the help of radiographs, we at Family Plus Dental Centers can look at what is happening beneath the surface of your teeth and gums. If you have questions about your dental X-ray exam, we welcome you to talk with one of our dentists.
