Dental Cleanings at Parkcrest Dental Group
Our team at Parkcrest Dental Group will begin your cleaning by checking the visible surfaces of your teeth to determine if there are any existing cavities and to check the state of any current fillings or restorations you may have. A periodontal examination will also be done which will consist of making sure your gums are healthy and that no periodontal disease exists that could potentially lead to jawbone or tooth loss.
Your hygienist will carefully clean your teeth to remove any hard plaque and tartar. They will then polish your teeth and demonstrate proper flossing and brushing techniques. After your teeth are clean, they will often apply a professional strength fluoride treatment to make your teeth stronger.
Depending on your dental conditions, antibiotics or other specific periodontal treatment such as dental implants may be recommended to help you achieve great oral health. Your hygienist at Parkcrest Dental Group is happy to share with you specific instructions to help you achieve this goal. If periodontal disease is diagnosed, your dentist and dental hygienist will outline the best treatment options for you.
If you have anxiety or fear of common dental procedures, please ask about our sedation options. The mission of Parkcrest Dental Group is to provide optimal oral health to our patients.
