Professional dental cleanings on a six-month basis are incredibly effective at protecting the teeth and gums from harmful bacteria. During this visit, the dentist or hygienist may also discuss ways in which home care may be improved to protect the teeth and gums from uncomfortable problems like cavities or inflammation.
Fluoride and dental sealants are two common treatments that help patients avoid tooth decay. Sealants protect the back teeth, which have deep grooves in which bacteria can easily accumulate. Application of dental sealants as well as fluoride is painless and achieve lasting effects.
Bad Breath Treatment
Bad breath, called halitosis, can wreck your social and professional relationships and shatter your confidence. Mints and mouthwash mask the odor but don’t eliminate it. Gentle Touch Dentistry offers advice about breath treatments to stop odor. Bad breath has many causes, including poor brushing and flossing habits, gum disease, tooth decay, and ill-fitting dentures and partials. Even stress, dieting, and hormonal changes can trigger bad breath.
A comprehensive examination of your teeth, gums, and tongue will help identify the source of your bad breath. Once we determines the cause, we’ll recommend treatment options to eradicate it. A deep cleaning by one of our skilled hygienists, along with proper brushing and flossing techniques, may cure the problem. If gum disease or ill- fitting dentures or partials are contributing to breath odor, we will customize a treatment plan to restore your fresh breath.
Unfortunately, it is sometimes necessary to have a permanent tooth removed or extracted. This is often our last resort when attempting to maintain your oral health. If a tooth is able to be saved, we will give you all the treatment options possible to do so and then make the best decision for you and your health. We ask you to please contact our office if you are experiencing any pain or discomfort so that we can help restore your oral health.
