Your Regular Dental Appointment

Keeping up with your regular dental visits can help you maintain a beautiful and healthy smile. During these routine appointments, our team will provide you with a thorough dental cleaning and exam to make sure your smile is in good health. We recommend scheduling your routine visits with us at least once every six months. Depending on your individual dental needs, you may need to visit the office more frequently.

Periodontal (Gum) Treatment

We provide deep teeth cleanings as an effective treatment for periodontal disease. Periodontal gum disease is the result of bacteria and plaque build-up that finds their way to the tooth’s root. 

Signs of gum disease may include the following:

  • Bleeding gums when brushing
  • Redness or swelling of the gums
  • Receding gums
  • Bad breath or halitosis
  • Pain when chewing
  • Shifting of teeth

It’s important to see Dr. Bingham regularly to ensure that the disease doesn’t progress, causing further damage to your gums and teeth. Gum disease destroys the bone that supports your teeth and may lead to tooth decay or even tooth loss.

Deep cleanings are similar to regular cleanings. In addition to cleaning the teeth, Dr. Bingham will remove plaque and tartar between the gumline and the root area. During a deep cleaning, you may experience slight discomfort and if you prefer, a local anesthetic can be given to numb the area.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do dental cleanings whiten teeth?

Yes, cleanings can sometimes whiten your teeth. We may be able to lift some stains from your teeth by polishing them using our professional tools. These results won’t be as dramatic as a teeth whitening treatment, but you may notice a slight difference.

To keep your teeth from developing stains, we recommend taking good care of your teeth at home by implementing a good oral hygiene routine. On top of your at-home oral hygiene routine, you can also rinse your mouth with water after you eat and avoid dark-colored foods and drinks that have a tendency to cause stains.

What is good dental hygiene?

Good dental hygiene is your first line of defense against oral diseases. A good at-home oral hygiene routine consists of brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing once a day, using a suitable mouthwash, and visiting your dentist for regular checkups. 

Maintaining a good oral hygiene routine can keep your teeth healthy and give you a beautiful smile. Preventative care can keep you from needing invasive and expensive dental procedures.

What should I expect during my dental visit?

At your dental visit, we’ll clean your teeth and examine your mouth to make sure you’re healthy. We can clean all areas of your teeth of hardened plaque, which is more difficult to clean off. 

We’ll also provide a full mouth examination consisting of noninvasive visual and physical examination, X-rays if you’re due for them, and an oral cancer screening. These all help us assess your oral health and catch any potential dental issues before they require intense treatment.
