Maintain your oral health with hygiene treatments and services

If you own a car, you know how important it is to have your vehicle working great every day. To ensure this, you probably take it in regularly for oil changes and fluid inspections. That keeps your car’s engine in working order. But did you know that you should have the same mentality with your smile? Avoiding routine dental cleanings and evaluations can be incredibly detrimental to oral health and wellness. A proactive approach to oral health is the best way to achieve a healthy smile and maintain it for life! 

Dental hygiene treatments available 

Dr. Rajni Kapoor of Mirage Family Dentistry is a dentist in the community who proudly offers a wide range of dental hygiene treatments and services. Along with her dental hygienists, she stresses the importance of keeping an appointment at least every six months for a cleaning (and in those patients whose conditions warrant it, every 3-4 months) and examination. But this isn’t the only dental hygiene service available. Below are other treatments that are readily available at her practice:

  • Periodontal cleaning – patients diagnosed with periodontal disease will need to have periodontal cleaning done to remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria from the smile. To do this, scaling and root planing are often recommended, during which patients will experience plaque and tartar removal. Bacteria may be addressed with antibiotics to bring the smile back to health and eradicate the infection.
  • Fillings – patients with cavities or tooth decay need to speak to a dental provider about dental fillings. Fillings can fill the space of decay and keep it from becoming larger and deeper, affecting more of the natural tooth structure and inner dental pulp.
  • Oral cancer screenings – oral cancer can be spotted in its early stages, increasing one’s chances of survival with early intervention.
