“Our mouth is the entrance to the entire body”
It is imperative to keep your mouth clean. Good and bad organisms reside in our mouths. In order to keep the bad microorganisms at bay, regular oral hygiene and yearly dental cleanings are important.
We at Peach Smiles, an affordable Lawrenceville dentist recommend coming to get a cleaning twice a year.
At these visits, our hygienists are trained to notice any periodontal diseases or suspicious lesions. We also advise more regular visits to our office if you are diagnosed with periodontal disease like 3-4 months.
The cleanings will not only reset your oral hygiene, but it will allow you to prolong your healthy teeth and reduce chances of diseases.
Our ultimate goal at Peach Smiles is to keep patients mouths healthy and educate patients on good oral hygiene.
A preventive measure for healthy individuals who have good oral hygiene. Any bleeding seen is known as gingivitis. Reestablishing proper oral care can eliminate bleeding and inflammation.
Large amounts of plaque and calculus around the teeth can cause inflammation of the gums. Individuals with gingival or periodontal disease are at risk for such accumulations. Probing depth readings can be collected better through debridement, therefore allowing the hygienist to get a better picture of the health of the gums.
As a follow up treatment to debridement, the hygienist can reach the plaque and calculus beneath the gums easier with instruments. Following the cleaning, patients can properly clean at home.
Patients with varying degrees of periodontal diseases can benefit from root planning also called “deep cleaning.” The root surfaces are cleaned by reaching further within the gums. In cases of severe inflammation and infection, antibiotics, such as doxycycline will be placed in the gums to help treat the periodontal disease.
Performed every three months in patients with periodontal disease. The regular visits are necessary in order to maintain and assure the gums gradually return to a proper tooth attachment. Also called as Periodontal Maintenance.
