Is Oral Hygiene Right for You?

The short answer is yes! But how can you be sure you are doing everything to have the best smile possible? At-home dental care is essential to your health, but it is also important that you see your dentist for professional preventive-care services like teeth cleaning, periodontal treatments, fluoride treatments, and sealants.

Soundview Family Dental is happy to offer these services, to fully serve our patients’ oral hygiene needs and protect their teeth for the long term.

While genetics does play a role in the quality and health of our teeth, so does how you maintain them.

Healthy Teeth for Life

When your gums and teeth are healthy, there is just less to worry about. With routine oral hygiene services, tooth decay can often be prevented. Tooth decay can cause tooth loss or require primary corrective services to eliminate the decay and repair the tooth. Preventive dentistry solutions including cleanings and fluoride treatments, which can stop these things from happening, and assist you with having the healthiest smile possible, for life.

Professional Cleanings

Cleanings are perhaps the most well-known service offered at dental offices. Professional cleanings remove built-up plaque and tartar, which can’t be done with at-home care. Tartar can’t be removed with brushing, and can only be removed with professional tools. The problem with tartar is that if left to its own devices, it will cause tooth decay. Tooth decay, if left untreated, can grow into a significant issue. Decay can also become painful if the tooth pulp and root become infected.

During a cleaning, our hygienists will go over each tooth, removing any build-up. They will get between the teeth and under the gum line to restore the condition of the teeth.

Periodontal Treatments

The treatment for gum disease starts with proper at-home care. But for some patients, through no fault of their own, this isn’t enough to overcome the issue. At our dental office, we will remove any debris or buildup in the pockets so that bacteria won’t destroy the gum and jawbone. These treatments are extremely beneficial and are highly recommended to those that present with red gums, those that bleed when brushing, or those that aren’t avid flossers.

Flouride Treatments

Fluoride treatments aren’t painful and are an additional step that can be taken after cleaning is performed. Your dentist will apply the fluoride paste or gel to the total surface areas of the teeth. Fluoride can prevent tooth decay, can reduce tooth sensitivity, and will keep your teeth healthier.
