Professional cleanings performed by our A Smiling Heart Dentistry team are just as important to your dental health as daily brushing and flossing.
Regular exams with our dentists help us detect and prevent health issues before they become serious. We check for problems including:
|Gum pocket measurement
Gum disease, sometimes referred to as Periodontal Disease, kills teeth, and it accounts for about 70% of all tooth loss in adults. Do you have early signs of gum disease? Are your gums bleeding when flossing or brushing? Are they red or inflamed?
Sealants are something you will love. We prevent cavities with sealants in areas that are more susceptible to them by painting a plastic coating onto the teeth.
Radiographs, or x-rays, are a very important tool that we have to see what cannot be seen with the naked eye. At A Smiling Heart Dentistry, our dental team uses digital x-rays which have several advantages over traditional film based x-rays.
These new, quick and non-invasive tests deliver information that will enable your dental professional to better determine the appropriate treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.
If you’re looking for a dentist who focuses on promoting your overall health and wellness instead of just treating oral and dental disease, holistic dentistry may be the right choice for you.
