Keep Your Smile Bright With Teeth Cleanings and Oral Exams
At Lakewood Smiles Dentistry, we provide convenient, effective cleanings and exams that help keep your smile healthy. A professional teeth cleaning helps you get rid of plaque and tartar that you can’t remove on your own, and allows our dental hygienists to find any potential issues with your smile, such as tooth decay or gingivitis.
Dr. Girgis or Dr. William will provide you with a comprehensive oral exam, and identify any issues with your teeth that may require immediate attention. By catching common oral health problems like cavities early, we can save you time, money and unnecessary stress. In addition, we do our best to keep our oral exams and cleanings affordable, so that you can get quality preventative dental care in Lakewood on any budget.
Fight Back Against Periodontal Disease With Deep Cleanings
Gum disease affects more than 50% of all American adults. If you have gingivitis, the first stage of gum disease, a deep cleaning which is also called scaling and root planing can help you fight and destroy the infection that causes gum disease. One of our dentists will use special tools to remove plaque and bacteria from the gums and roots of your teeth, which can completely eliminate most cases of gingivitis.
Reverse Minor Tooth Decay With Fluoride Treatments
If you have a “soft spot” in your enamel, you can prevent a cavity from forming with fluoride treatments. Suitable for both children and adults, fluoride treatments consist of a special fluoride-rich compound, which is “painted” onto your teeth. Fluoride has the unique ability to encourage tooth remineralization, strengthening your teeth and reversing the effects of minor tooth decay.
Prevent Cavities With Dental Sealants
Dental sealants are a great way to protect against cavities, and also can be used on patients of all ages. Dr. William or Dr. Girgis will paint a special type of dental resin onto your rear teeth after your teeth cleaning. Then, a UV light is used to cure the resin, creating a strong plastic barrier which prevents acid, bacteria and food from contacting your molars. In turn, this barrier helps prevent the formation of cavities for up to 10 years.
