At PERFECT TEETH™, our experienced dentists and hygienists are
responsible for the overall care of your mouth. As a team,
they work together to provide patients with a variety of teeth
cleaning and oral health services. At all PERFECT TEETH™
practices our dentists take the time to thoroughly examine patients
to determine their overall oral health. Depending on specific
needs, our registered dental hygienists determine exactly what type
of treatment is best for their patient.
Types of Teeth Cleaning
The type of teeth cleaning depends on the patient's overall
dental health. The most basic cleaning, referred to as a
"prophy" or "preventive cleaning," is for patients that have
healthy teeth and gums and includes the removal of stains and
debris that are above the gum line. Patients that have a
condition referred to as periodontal disease (bone loss around the
tooth) require a more advanced, non-surgical procedure that
involves the removal of plaque and tartar below the gum line.
To determine if this alternative treatment is needed, we will
evaluate a patient's mouth during their examination to detemine if
peridontal disease is present. If periodontal disease is
present, our providers will make every effort to treat the active
infection non-surgically. If our providers determine that the
extent of the infection cannot be treated at their practice, we
immediately refer our patients to one of our PERFECT TEETH™
periodontists for specialty treatment. Our periodontists will
take immediate action with these specific cases to establish a
routine set of specialty treatments to restore adequate oral
health. To learn more about periodontal disease click here.
At PERFECT TEETH™ our staff knows that no two patients are the
same. We provide each patient with customized teeth cleaning
services based on their individual oral health. Our team is
eager to help current and future patients to determine the most
appropriate teeth cleaning service for them.
