How Often Should You Get Your Teeth Cleaned?

Regular exams and cleanings are essential parts of preventative dental care for every member of the family, and most patients should have a checkup and cleaning twice a year. We pride ourselves on providing gentle and thorough dental cleaning services. Our focus is always on the patient’s comfort and health.

Scheduling a dental exam in Stockbridge has never been easier. Simply call us today and make an appointment for a time that works best for you.

How Is Gum Disease Treated?

People used to expect that they would lose their teeth when they got older, but that is no longer the case. With proper at-home care and regular in-office dental cleanings, you can keep your teeth healthy for the long term and protect yourself from gum disease, which is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. Gum disease is also known as periodontal disease.

If you have any of these signs of gum disease, please contact us to schedule a dental exam in Stockbridge today:

  • Receding gums
  • Red, swollen gum tissue
  • Bad breath that doesn’t go away
  • Loose, shifting teeth
  • Bleeding gums when brushing or flossing

At our office, we can often perform gum disease treatment without surgery. One method of treatment is known as planing and scaling, which removes plaque, tartar and calculus from the teeth. This is a type of tooth deep cleaning that goes down to the tooth’s root. You may also receive dental antibiotic treatment to kill bacteria and help your gums heal. Severe cases of gum disease will be referred to our specialist in periodontal treatment. You’ll receive a customized treatment plan after your first dental exam with us.

What Causes Bad Breath?

Nobody wants to have bad breath. It can be highly embarrassing in social situations, and it’s a top reason for seeking the help of a dentist. The good news is that our dental office can help you to get rid of bad breath for good.

In most cases, bad breath is caused by bacteria in the mouth. Gum disease is a common culprit, and treating the gum disease will also resolve problems with bad breath. However, certain conditions and illnesses can also cause bad breath, such as acid reflux.

Some people are embarrassed to ask for help for bad breath, but there is no reason to feel that way. The causes behind bad breath can also threaten your dental and overall health too. If bad breath is bothering you, please call us to schedule a dental exam today.

How Much Does an Oral Cancer Screening Cost?

Oral cancer can be life-threatening, and just like other types of cancer, it has the best treatment outcome when it’s detected early. Your dentist will check for signs of oral cancer during your routine dental exam. If you have symptoms that you are concerned about, we can see you specifically to test for oral cancer.

An oral cancer test is often covered by dental or medical insurance. The exact cost of the test depends on what further testing, if any, is needed and a host of other factors. Please contact us to schedule a dental exam in Stockbridge and get screened for oral cancer.
