Cleanings & Prevention

Prevention is the key to a healthy mouth. Healthy gums and healthy teeth leads to a healthy lifestyle and lets face it, healthy breathe. Neglecting your mouth can lead to periodontal disease and as we know, periodontal disease (gum disease) is a silent epidemic. Gum disease has been linked to many serious conditions such as cardiac disease, diabetes, and other major systemic conditions. This is why a prophylactic regimen is needed in order to prevent and/or treat the condition.

"Preventing gum disease begins at home with good oral hygiene and of course a balanced diet. At our practice we will make sure that you are equipped for proper home care and that we will do our bests efforts to promote, maintain, and restore your oral health." -Parker Haley, DDS

It is important to detect dental concerns early. This is why periodic dental exams are necessary to prevent and avoid invasive treatment. Prevention is the key, whether it is addressing dental issues before they become complicated or by promoting frequent brushing and flossing techniques at home.
X-rays are apart of dentistry as a diagnostic tool. We practice at the highest level of care, therefore every exam needs to be thorough and accurate. Your health and safety is the utmost importance, and x-rays are taken to avoid missing any possible concerns.
Preventing the onset of gum disease and tooth decay is to have a recurring schedule for dental cleanings to remove the tartar, plaque, and bacteria that builds up around your teeth every couple months.
When tartar, plaque, and bacteria build up over time you begin to get gingivitis and your gums begin to recede. Once the gums recede the bone begins to die and the teeth become mobile. Ultimately, you lose your teeth.
