Healthy teeth and gums are the foundation of a healthy and beautiful smile. Regular teeth cleanings & checkups by your dentist are an important step in preventative oral health care. Grace Family Dental is dedicated to helping you maintain your gums and overall dental health, and that is why we are pleased to offer regular teeth cleanings and checkups.
Routine home maintenance, while very effective, only focuses on areas of the tooth that are above the gum. A professional cleaning will be able to clean your teeth above the gum line, which is known as scaling but also below the gum line, which is known as root planing. It is only through regular scaling and root planing procedures that remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria toxins from those hard to reach areas below the gum line that we can keep your gums healthy from top to bottom!
Our Dental Team uses traditional hand scalers and ultrasonic scaling tools to remove stubborn deposits and tartar (known as calculus). The goal of regular dental hygiene appointments is to prevent gum disease. Gum Disease is often pain-free but can ultimately result in premature tooth loss and lead to other health issues if left unattended.
