Prophylactic Teeth Cleanings

At Lernor Family Dental, we create lasting relationships with each patient. When you stop in for your dental cleaning, you’ll see the same hygienist and dentist at each visit. We know you, your smile, and what your goals are…you’re more than just a name on our schedule!

Six Month Preventive Dental Cleanings

To limit your risk of gum disease and tooth decay, it is generally recommended to have a preventative dental cleaning every six months. During your appointment, we can provide appropriate prophylactic therapies such as:

  • Oral hygiene assessment and education
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Tobacco cessation planning
  • Debridement of plaque biofilm and calcified tartar buildup
  • Evaluation of your gum, tooth, and bone health

You can also request:

  • Prophy-jet® air polishing to remove tenacious tooth stains
  • Fluoride treatments for tooth sensitivity or enamel remineralization

Even if you have great oral hygiene, you most likely have a few areas where plaque or tartar deposits tend to accumulate between checkups. Cleaning these surfaces routinely prevents bacteria from contributing to soft tissue disease, bone loss, and the development of periodontal disease.

Deep Cleanings for Managing Gum Disease

Periodontal disease is the leading cause of adult tooth loss. Symptoms often include tooth mobility and/or loss, bad breath, receding gumlines, and gums that bleed easily or are swollen.

It’s also directly linked with health conditions like:

  • Diabetes
  • Pneumonia
  • Cardiovascular disease, heart attack, and stroke
  • Infertility in men and women
  • Premature birth

…and many others

This North Phoenix Scottsdale family dentist offers non-surgical gum treatments to eliminate the bacteria that cause gum disease, benefitting both your oral and overall health. From deep cleanings (periodontal scaling and root planing) to locally-placed antibiotics like Arestin, your particular case will involve a tooth-by-tooth approach to eliminating this common gum infection.

Request An Appointment

We understand that there are times when you must miss an appointment due to emergencies or obligations for work or family. However, when you do not call to cancel an appointment, you may be preventing another patient from getting much-needed treatment. If an appointment is not canceled at least 48 hours in advance you will be charged a fifty dollar ($50) fee; this will not be covered by your insurance company.
