When you visit Brookfield Smiles Inc., you’ll experience a dental hygiene program to help prevent new cavities, preserve teeth with restorations, and manage periodontal/gum disease. Both natural teeth and restored teeth thrive best in clean oral environment. We stress proper oral hygiene habits in order to prevent gum disease, and our dentist specializes in Brookfield teeth cleaning so that we can help you do exactly that.
It is important to prevent gum disease as infection and inflammation of the tissues that support your teeth can erode the ligament and bone beneath the gums, resulting in tooth loss. At Brookfield Smiles Inc, we provide regular examinations of your gums during checkups with a periodontal probe and regular x-rays. If periodontal disease is diagnosed, your doctor will discuss with you which of our services will best suit your individual needs. Non-surgical periodontal therapy may be all that’s needed, especially when caught early. This therapy removes the plague and calculus by controlling the growth of harmful bacteria, and treating conditions that may encourage gum disease. If your periodontitis is more advanced, however, periodontal scaling and root planning may be required. Scaling is a procedure that meticulously removes the plague and tartar deposits at and under the gum line, while root planning then smooths the root’s surfaces so that the supportive tissues can better attach to the tooth surface. This is done with local anesthesia to aid in your comfort. As with most other bacterial diseases, an antibiotic may be administered to help control, reduce, or eliminate the harmful bacteria.
We will take the time to customize and personalize the treatment for each patient. Our practice strives to ensure our patients have a pleasant experience, and are sent home with a bright, beautiful, healthy smile. Taking care of your teeth is vital to your oral and overall health. So whether your teeth need only a simple Brookfield teeth cleaning, or you require a deeper cleaning to prevent/treat gum disease, your dentist at Brookfield Smiles Inc will help establish and maintain proper gum care to can keep you smiling for a lifetime.
