Cleanings and preventive dentistry in Atlanta, GA
Your daily oral hygiene regimen is one of the most important factors in the longevity of your oral health. However, unless paired with regular visits to your dentist for exams and cleanings, your diligence can only do so much.
Brushing and even flossing is unable to effectively reach every crevice in the mouth and remove one hundred percent of the plaque and bacteria that cause tooth decay and gum disease.
Dr. Travis Paige at Buckhead Family Dentistry in Atlanta offers cleanings and exams to combat tooth decay and help ensure a lifetime of happy, healthy smiles.
Cleanings in Atlanta
While brushing and flossing are vital to your oral hygiene, they simply cannot match the results of a cleaning performed by an expert hygienist.
Our hygienist utilizes specialized tools and experience to remove all plaque and tarter from the surface of your teeth, as well as the gum line. Afterwards, a quick polishing using an abrasive toothpaste cleans and smooths the surface of your enamel, making it more difficult for bacteria and food particles to adhere to. You may also be given a fluoride treatment, meant to remineralize and strengthen your enamel to prevent cavities.
During your visit, Dr. Paige will administer an exam to ascertain the state of your oral health. From x-rays to intraoral photographs and oral cancer screenings, we cover all the bases to ensure you get the care you need.
Whether you have cavities or show signs for early stages of gum disease like gingivitis, we want to make sure that nothing is missed. This information is used to develop a treatment plan that suits your needs.
