"My children actually look forward to their dental visits and have a lot to tell us about what they talked about and how it all went”
Dental hygiene is what people think of when they come to the dentist for a “cleaning.” Routine hygiene appointments help keep teeth looking great and also help prevent diseases such as gingivitis and periodontal disease from occurring. Left unchecked, these conditions can lead to bad breath, tooth pain, and potential tooth loss.
Scaling and root planing is a non-surgical procedure done to help treat periodontal disease. Often called “a deep cleaning,” scaling and root planing is indicated when you have more advanced signs of gum disease. By removing the bacterial toxins and deposit from teeth and root surfaces, gums have the ability to heal and reattach, leading to a better oral health outcome. At SRK we will determine if this is a necessary treatment modality for you, and if so, we will help guide you through the steps to reestablish your oral health.
Routine dental cleanings performed by Elizabeth, our skilled and knowledgeable dental hygienist, will lead you to a cleaner and healthier mouth. Additionally, routine visits can also help catch disease processes early; thereby, helping to prevent future higher cost dental treatments.
