Having pearly white teeth is a great reason to smile and is a great confidence boost.

GENERAL DENTISTRY

There are different types of dental cleanings. Some patients are able to have the routine dental prophylaxis while others have periodontal disease that needs to be addressed by a more extensive type of cleaning. It is very important to stick with the treatment plan recommended for you by Dr. Joerger.

REGULAR TEETH CLEANINGS & ORAL EXAMS

It is very important to come in every six months or less, if recommended by the dentist. During these appointments Dr. Junco does a thorough exam for any cavities, infections, and an oral cancer screening. The hygienist cleans off the plaque and tartar that you aren’t able to get with your tooth brush.

A regular cleaning is known as a prophylaxis in dental terms. The American Dental Association describes a prophylaxis as removal of plaque, calculus and stains from the tooth structures.

SCALING AND ROOT PLANING

Root planing removes bacteria and their toxins, tarter, and diseased deposits from the surfaces of the tooth roots. Scraping or scaling is required the full length of the root surface, down to where the root, gum and bone meet. Root planing is typically one of the first steps in treating gum and bone disease (periodontal disease).

PERIODONTAL DISEASE

Periodontal disease is very common, but does not always have distinct symptoms. It is an inflammation and infection of the supporting structures of the teeth (gums, bone, ligaments, root surfaces) that eventually results in the loss of teeth. You may notice that your gums bleed easily, that you have a bad taste in your mouth, that your gums appear red or swollen, that your teeth appear longer or have shifted. Or you may not notice anything at all.

PERIODONTAL MAINTENANCE

If you have periodontal disease, you may require root planing to remove diseased deposits from the roots of your teeth. Other treatment, including surgery, may be required. After the disease process is under control, a regular cleaning is not appropriate anymore. Instead, you will require special on-going gum and bone care procedures, also known as periodontal maintenance to keep your mouth healthy.
