Expert Auburn Dental Cleaning and Disease Prevention

Preventing periodontal disease is critical to maintaining your oral health and keeping your dental costs down. The expert staff at Auburn Periodontics and Implants utilize only the very latest methods and technology to provide quality dental cleaning and disease prevention services.

Digital X-rays: Auburn Periodontics and Implants uses digital x-rays, the safest and most current dental-imaging technology. Digital X-rays provide the same visual information needed for treatment planning as standard X-rays, but they reduce exposure to radiation by 80 to 90%. They can be viewed immediately and are easily edited to a larger size for better viewing and convenient emailing to you and/or your general dentist.

Teeth & Gumline Cleaning: Routine cleaning of your teeth and gumline by a general or periodontal hygienist is a vital component of a good oral health regimen, which is key in preventing inflammation of the gum tissue known as gingivitis. Bacteria that isn’t removed causes inflammation of the gums, and inflammation left untreated leads to gum disease and other periodontal diseases. Over time, diseases of the gums cause teeth to decay, become loose, and deteriorate—ultimately resulting in loss of the tooth.

dental cleaning and disease preventionOral Cancer Screening: Oral cancer screening involves diagnosing and treating diseases of the mouth such as cysts, tumors, and precancerous and cancerous lesions.

Education: A healthy smile and healthy gums begin with quality dental cleaning and prevention education. Your hygienist will discuss proper technique for brushing and flossing and provide education on how your diet and lifestyle affect your dental health.

The Importance of Oral Cancer Exams

Oral cancer often doesn’t manifest with the usual signs of cancer. Early detection and treatment significantly increase the chance for successful outcomes. The American Cancer Society reports that more than 7,000 of the 30,000 annually diagnosed cases of oral cancer result in death, many of which could have been avoided with an oral cancer exam. A professional screening during a dental cleaning and prevention appointment can identify oral cancer during the early stages, contributing to a better treatment outcome.
