Removal of plaque – Calculus, or tartar, along with plaque buildup, is the precursor to future periodontal problems. Both can accumulate below and above the gum line to the point that even flossing and brushing every single day does not get rid of it. We will remove all the built-up bacteria, debris and deposits from your gum pockets. We know that you try your best at home, but sometimes you need an experienced dentist with special dental equipment to catch the buildup that could lead to so much more damage.
Healthy Smile – Prophylaxis will get rid of all the unsightly stains on your teeth that can cause you to hide your smile. Once they are gone, you won’t want to ever stop flashing your pearly whites!
Fresh breath – Halitosis, or bad breath, is usually an indicator of advancing periodontal disease. Gum infection can cause potential gangrene, which can then result in bad breath, as can rotting food particles that have not been brushed or rinsed away. We can provide you with a powerful teeth cleaning at our office that will get rid of any plaque, calculus and bacteria to improve your breath and reduce any infection that could be forming in your mouth.
We offer professional dental cleaning here with Dr. Muneer in our office. Most patients benefit greatly from a twice-a-year cleaning as a preventative measure, but some periodontitis sufferers come in quarterly to get their teeth taken care of.
Please remember that gum disease cannot be completely reversed, but we have the knowledge and tools to halt its progression and keep it from spreading.
