There is no question about it. A bright white smile makes everyone feel more confident, and residents of Peachtree Corners are no different.
In most cases, dental cleanings are done twice a year. This allows you to make sure that you are staying on top of your oral health.
When a hygienist cleans your teeth, you’ll enjoy several benefits, besides that clean feeling:
When you come into our office for dental cleaning, the team may take X-rays to make sure you don’t have cavities or other concerns that are not visible to the eye. Once a year every patient is evaluated for their risk of periodontal disease. We monitor this by placing a small probe where the tooth and gums meet. This probe gives us a millimeter measurement and any number between 1-3 mm means your gums are healthy! The physical examination is done with a small mirror.
For the cleaning, the team will use a scaler to remove tartar and plaque from between your teeth and around the gumline. Tartar is plaque that has not been removed and cannot be removed without the help of a professional. Once the plaque and tartar are completely removed, the hygienist will polish your teeth with a special paste or a baking soda spray. This is the best part! Next, the hygienist will floss your teeth to make sure all debris is gone.
At the end of the appointment, Dr. Dawson will come check you to make sure you don’t have any concerns and diagnose any treatment that needs to be done.
