Good dental health begins with a good dental cleaning and hygiene. Of course we all know that daily brushing and flossing is a must, but regular visits to the North Babcock Dental Care hygienists is equally important to maintain healthy teeth and gums.
At your next dental cleaning visit, our Dentists will examine your teeth and gums for decay, periodontitis, and gingivitis. We’ll check your neck and mouth for lumps, red or white patches, or chronically sore areas that could be a sign of cancer. If you are having soreness in your jaw, we’ll check for TMJ and TMD as well as offer advice on what you can do to eliminate it.
Most people will need just a cleaning and polishing to remove tartar and brighten their teeth. If we discover that you have a moderate to severe gum condition like gingivitis or periodontitis then it is likely that we’ll recommend a deep cleaning root scaling or planing. These deep cleaning procedures can have a fundamental impact in preventing bone loss and can assist with helping you to keep your natural teeth.
