Thorough Cleanings & Examinations
All thorough dental hygiene prevention programs begin with routine teeth cleanings and examinations. The teeth cleanings and dental exams performed by our dental staff include the following:
- Remove dental plaque.
- Polish and floss teeth.
- Apply topical fluoride as necessary.
- Provide oral hygiene instructions.
Additional Prevention Procedures
A complete preventative dental services program is more than a basic cleaning and examination. Dr. Hanania takes a comprehensive approach to oral health care in order to prevent future issues that can be hazardous to your dental health and your budget. Other dental care prevention procedures may include:
- Apply dental sealants.
- Take digital x-rays.
- Conduct oral cancer screenings.
- Search for evidence of periodontal disease.
Why Treat Gum Disease?
Our #1 priority at Mandarin Dental is to provide our patients with healthy teeth and gums for a lifetime. We do this by focusing on the treatment and prevention of gum disease, also known as periodontal disease. Gum disease has been linked to several systemic health issues such as pre-eclampsia, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s, and diabetes. When we find evidence of gum disease, it’s imperative to conduct a periodontal maintenance procedure, which is a comprehensive gum disease cleaning, and includes:
- Removing plaque and tartar from above and below the gum line.
- Irrigating inflamed gum pockets with antibacterial medicine.
- Smoothing tooth roots as needed.
- Monitoring gum pockets carefully between visits.
A Family Dental Clinic
Dr. Hanania and his staff welcome all members of your family, from toddlers to senior adults. At each preventative dental appointment, we take our time to learn about your dental history and any current oral health problems.
- Full exam of teeth, jaw, bite, and gums.
- Examine teeth for signs of decay.
- Gently clean and polish teeth.
