On this page, we will review important information for patients who visit our dental office in Wayne, PA. We welcome our patients to learn about our practice and extensive dental services.
The Importance of Routine Dental Care
Many patients know that they need to visit the dentist on a regular basis. But did you know that regular dental care provided by a professional can help prevent the development of future dental problems? At regular dental appointments, we provide:
Our dental hygienists provide thorough cleanings to remove bacteria buildup from the teeth and gums. One of the most effective cleaning treatments that they offer is scaling and root planing. These two treatments help prevent periodontitis or gum disease.
Scaling treatment removes plaque and tartar found on and beneath the gums. Root planing cleans and smooths the tooth roots. For younger patients, we will often recommend dental sealants and fluoride treatment. These routine treatments help seal out harmful bacteria that cause tooth decay.
Our dental office uses digital x-rays so we can see a more detailed picture of the teeth and gums. When compared to traditional x-rays, modern digital x-rays are a much safer option, reducing radiation by 80 percent.
X-rays help us diagnose dental problems and create customized treatment plans for our patients. Dental x-rays can be used for patients who are receiving dental implants, tooth extraction treatment, Invisalign, and other dental treatments.
Oral Cancer and Gum Disease Screenings
Oral cancer and gum disease both display symptoms that our dental team can find with a thorough examination. Early signs of gum disease can include red, swollen, and irritated gums. Over time, we may see deep gum pockets and loose teeth if patients have more severe cases of gum disease.
Signs of oral cancer often include mouth ulcers and white and red patches in the mouth. It is important to schedule routine visits so we can keep track of any changes in your mouth.
