Your everyday oral hygiene habits will determine whether your smile stays healthy or becomes plagued by oral health problems. Great oral hygiene involves brushing and flossing at least twice a day. In addition, regular checkups with your dentist ensure your teeth and gums stay healthy. These dental checks involve the dentist performing a deep cleaning of your teeth and gums to remove plaque and tartar. We will also check for cavities and other potential problems. Smiles By The Sea provides an array of hygiene services, such as deep cleanings, fluoride treatments, dental sealants, gum therapy treatments, and breath enhancing treatments.

Regular Hygiene Visit:
Plaque and tartar buildup causes inflammation of the gums (gingivitis). A professional cleaning removes the irritants and bacteria that cause bad breath. As the gums rebound to a healthy state, the smile appears brighter and whiter.
Dental sealants are thin plastic coatings that can be applied to the chewing surfaces of back molars to protect against decay. Dental sealants are recommended for patients who are prone to developing decay.
Dental research has found fluoride to be beneficial for adults as well as children. It is found that adults with dry mouth, recent decay and receding gums are more prone to cavities. The simple and low cost fluoride treatment can significantly lower the risk of future decay or cavities.
This is a routine cleaning for patients who have undergone scaling and root planning
Scaling and Root Planning
Scaling and root planning are non-surgical gum therapy procedures that remove plaque, calculus, and bacteria from below the gum line. These treatments help to stop further tissue loss and allow your gum tissues to heal from gum disease.
