Everyone loves to share a smile, but great-looking smiles require care, maintenance, and sometimes restoration. A patient cannot remove the hardened plaque, also called tarter, that builds up on teeth above and below the gum lines. Tartar can irritate gums and lead to infections, like periodontal disease. Research has shown that the bacteria in these infections can enter the blood stream to compromise the health of major systems, contributing to heart disease, strokes, and even compromising pregnancies. We want to help you prevent potential problems and treat any problems you have. Take heart in the fact that periodontal disease is reversible. You should schedule regular check ups and professional cleanings at least twice a year. During your visit, we will comprehensively assess your entire oral cavity and create a preventive plan designed to meet the unique needs of your smile.
Our thorough exam will include reviewing your medical history to determine whether you’re at risk for specific problems. We’ll also check your soft tissue and jaw joints (TMJ), and we’ll perform an easy oral cancer exam and periodontal screening. This exam will tell us if you show signs of gum disease, oral cancer, tooth decay, or damaged dental work that needs repair.
