We tailor our program to meet the individual needs of each member of your family, and will keep you and your loved ones at ease throughout every checkup.
Tooth decay, gum disease and other oral health problems are caused by the buildup of plaque. Plaque is a sticky film that gathers continuously in every human mouth, harboring harmful bacteria that feed on sugar. The bacteria in plaque metabolize sugar from the foods you eat to produce acids that erode tooth enamel and form cavities. When plaque gathers below the gum line, it infects and inflames the tissues supporting and protecting the teeth. By brushing, flossing and making the right nutritional choices, you can take important steps each day to protect your teeth and gums. A biannual 89121 teeth cleaning and exam bolster your daily efforts to help you achieve optimal oral health. During your teeth cleaning, we’ll remove plaque buildup from difficult to reach areas between your teeth and gums. We’ll also take the time to teach each member of your family how to brush and floss most effectively between visits. For our youngest patients, these visits establish a foundation for healthy oral hygiene habits that will last a lifetime. We also provide our pediatric patients with fluoride treatments and dental sealants, which further protect your child’s teeth against cavities. For patients of all ages, our dentist will perform a comprehensive exam, using advanced digital radiography, as needed. Periodic examinations allow us to diagnose and treat oral health problems from their outset, for the most effective outcome of care.
At Dentists on Nellis, we make every 89121 teeth cleaning and exam a valuable learning experience for your family. To learn more or to schedule a checkup, call today.
