You know the saying: to keep decay away, practice good oral hygiene every day. Good hygiene means that you should be brushing and flossing your teeth daily since it removes the harmful plaque that can accumulate in your mouth. If plaque is allowed to accumulate, it can cause oral health problems, such as cavities and gum disease.
However, seeing your dentist for checkups is also an essential part of your oral hygiene routine. This is because oral health problems can still develop without your knowledge. These dental checkups allow your dentist to perform a more in-depth cleaning of your teeth and gums and check for oral health problems that you may not be aware of.
At Uptown Dental Gig Harbor, we offer professional hygiene services to keep your smile healthy and looking its best. Just a few of the hygiene services that we offer are:
Fluoride treatments to strengthen your tooth enamel. The stronger and healthier your enamel is, the better it can protect your teeth from decay.
Non-surgical gum therapy to treat gum disease. Gum disease is the most common oral health affliction impacting adults today. We will use a variety of non-surgical treatments, such as local medication, curettage, and root-planing, to remove the infected tissues and promote proper healing.
Professional breath freshening treatments. If you brush and floss daily but still are suffering from halitosis, we can make sure that your breath smells minty fresh.
Our hygiene treatments are carried out by one of our skilled hygienists. Our team is trained to the highest standards and has plenty of experience so you can achieve a healthier smile.
