Scaling and Root Planing

This essential treatment combats gum disease by removing plaque buildup below the gumline, preventing bone and tooth loss by addressing gum inflammation and deep-set plaque in pockets around the teeth.

How often should You go to the Dentist?

The general rule of thumb is to go to the dentist every six months for a professional exam and cleaning. If you have some dental issues—periodontal disease, for example—your dentist may recommend increasing the frequency of visits.

Even once every six months may seem like a lot. But, to paraphrase the old saying, an ounce of prevention keeps you from buying a pound of cure.

The Value of Regular Dental Visits

Regular visits help spot dental problems early when they can be treated in a safe, simple, affordable manner. And when your dentist sees you often, he or she can help you prevent many problems from developing in the first place.

 Some diseases have symptoms that show up in the mouth. Your dentist, who’s received the equivalent of a medical-school education, can detect suspicious-looking signs and point you toward medical care. Dentists are valuable allies on your health team.

How often should I brush and floss my teeth?

A proper brushing technique is the first step to maintaining healthy teeth and gums. You should be brushing your teeth for two minutes twice a day. You should hold your toothbrush at a 45-degree angle and brush in a gentle circular motion. Brush all surfaces of each tooth including the chewing surfaces. Don’t forget to brush your tongue also! This helps remove food partials to help remove odor-causing bacteria.  

 The ADA recommends flossing once a day, with 18 inches of floss.  This should allow for enough clean floss to use on each tooth in the flossing process. Slide the floss up and down between each tooth adapting the floss to the curvature of your tooth.
