Keep Up On Your Periodontal Health To Ensure Your Teeth Have The Strongest Foundation Possible!
Prophylaxis (Dental Cleaning)
We offer gentle, yet effective dental cleanings to our patients. This is one of the most important types of dental appointments because it can prevent several oral diseases including gingivitis, periodontal disease, and dental caries (cavities)
Scaling and Root Planing (Deep Cleaning)
This service is for patients who already have periodontal disease (bone loss around the teeth). Our hygienists are highly trained on how to identify and treat periodontitis. Advanced instruments such as ultrasonics and lasers can also be used during treatment to maximize your outcome.
For those of you with receding gums, this can be a great option. Exposed root surfaces can be sensitive and unsightly. The dentists at Summit Family Dental Care can graft gum tissue from one area of your mouth to the area of recession. This will give you a less sensitive, more esthetic result that is also more resistant to further recession.
