When we are driving along we rarely take time to look at them until it's too late and we have to replace costly damage caused by neglect. If you want to save money, pain and headaches down the line, preventative dentistry is the solution! We always advise visiting your dentist every 6 months for a routine cleaning and exam to make sure that we can monitor your oral health, it could help your overall health as well. Gum disease has been linked to problems throughout the body, especially for those with preexisting conditions such as diabetes.

Teeth Cleaning

stay ahead of decay

The best way to ensure your teeth stay healthy is to brush twice a day and floss once a day. That being said, professional teeth cleanings are also crucial to ensure the longevity of your smile by removing tartar and plaque build-up from the surface of your teeth that may have been missed by regular brushing and flossing. At Perfect Smiles, we provide a comfortable and stress-free environment for any procedure to ease any apprehensions you may have. The process is both quick and painless and will leave your teeth feeling squeaky clean!

Why do i need to get my teeth cleaned?

Thoroughly cleaning your teeth will decrease your chances of developing tooth decay, gum disease, and cavities. Regular, bi-annual check-ups could catch early signs of any dental issues and keep you from a world of pain and discomfort in the future. Professional teeth cleanings will keep plaque from building up and keep your teeth as clean and healthy as possible.

dental sealants

What are dental sealants?

One of the best preventative measures you can take to ensure the health of your teeth, especially your back molars, is sealants. These thin, protective coatings are designed to protect your teeth from bacteria that could cause tooth decay and cavities. Sealants are ideal for children who are still learning to brush properly and who are unable to thoroughly clean each tooth yet. These coatings also provide an extra layer of protection that will help keep food particles from building up on your child’s teeth.

Should I get Dental Sealants?

Sealants are great at preventing food from settling in between your teeth and forming cavities. The only way cavities can be sealed up is by drilling into your natural tooth, cleaning the bacteria out, and then filling it up. Sealants are great at stopping bacteria from forming cavities in the first place thus protecting the integrity of your natural tooth and keeping it strong and healthy longer. These coatings last for years and if compromised can easily be replaced.

Gum Disease Screening. At Perfect Smiles, the process is both quick and simple

gum disease screening

What is gum disease screening?

At Perfect Smiles, the process of screening for gum disease is both quick and simple. This screening is a great preventative measure that should be done twice a year. We will inspect your gums for any redness or puffiness as well as if they have started to recede. If further testing is required, we will take dental x-rays in order to get a glimpse of your jaw bone structure and make sure everything looks as it should. Early diagnosis of gum disease could lead to early treatment and ultimately save your time, money, and pain. 

How can i prevent gum disease?

Gum disease affects the gums surrounding your teeth and can result in various dental issues. Bacteria will form from plaque build-up as a result of poor oral hygiene which will cause your gums to swell. Gum disease can lead to tooth loss, bone deterioration, and bite changes as well as pain and discomfort. Practicing good oral health by brushing twice a day, flossing, and getting your teeth professionally cleaned can decrease your chances of developing gum disease and keep your smile healthy. 

oral cancer screening

What is an oral cancer screening?

Oral cancer screenings are another preventative measure like gum disease screenings used to detect early signs of oral cancer. Oral cancers can be found in your mouth, throat, lips, and cheeks. The actual examination is painless and will take just a few minutes. We will examine your mouth for any signs of mouth sores, lumps, and red or white patches. If we need to perform a more extensive exam, we will rinse your mouth with a blue dye that will stain any abnormalities blue. Furthermore, we also use a light that will make infected tissue appear white. 

Why do i need to be screened for oral cancer?

If oral cancer is detected during the exam, you become susceptible to various health issues. We see oral cancer being derived from excessive drinking and smoking, HPVs, and excessive sun exposure to the lip. Catching oral cancer early will increase your chances for a successful treatment. Though this exam is just precautionary and not diagnostic, checking to see if everything looks healthy never hurts.
