Prophylaxis: A prophylaxis exam is performed on patients who maintain regular recall visits and have healthy gums. We strive for all of our patients to have prophylaxis every 6 months along with a thorough check-up. This exam can help our team catch any early problems and prevent them from developing into more costly and painful issues.
Non-surgical Scaling: Periodontitis (or gum disease) is present in most American adults. It is usually not painful—which can be a good and bad trait. We do not want anyone to be in any discomfort; however, gum disease can worsen over time if undetected. Periodontal disease can exist in varying degrees, but it always requires a treatment that includes scaling, some form of medicament and shorter recall visits. We can treat most cases non-surgically, which is easier for the patient, but some advanced cases require the attention of a specialist.
Oxyfresh: Halitosis (bad breath) is a more common problem than most people think. There are products on the market that cover halitosis but do nothing to treat it. Our Oxyfresh regime works with healthy hygiene to combat the sources of bad breath.
