Dental Cleanings and Preventive Services
All patients have different needs throughout their lifetimes. From changes in your medical health to age – and even pregnancy, your level of oral health can vary throughout your lifetime.
At Trinity Dental Care, we personalize your treatment to meet your changing needs, including your professional dental cleanings.
Professional Dental Cleanings
The foundation for healthy teeth is maintaining healthy gums and bone. Brushing and flossing alone cannot reach all areas of your teeth, no matter how diligent you are. Our dental hygienists are highly skilled at removing plaque, tartar, and bacteria from hard-to-reach areas such as between your teeth and below your gum line.
Because our hygienists put our patients first, they are very gentle yet thorough, providing you with comfortable, outstanding care.
Each professional dental cleaning begins with an inspection and examination of your teeth. Our hygienists determine the type of professional dental cleaning that will best meet your needs. Our hygiene appointments are never "one size fits all" because each patient has individual needs.
The hygienist will gently remove all tartar and plaque from the surfaces of your teeth and take measurements to determine the health of your gums and bone. If we see signs of gum disease, we will alert you right away and provide you with solutions to address the problem.
We will polish your teeth, removing surface stains and bringing them to a bright, clean shine, and you will leave our office with the fresh, smooth feeling only a professional dental cleaning can provide.
Bacteria cause an acidic environment in the mouth that can soften your protective enamel – the outermost and hardest part of your tooth. Once your enamel is soft, it creates a way for the bacteria to enter the softer interior of your tooth and creates decay.
Fluoride treatments harden your enamel and protect your teeth against decay. It can also reduce sensitivity and improve the health of your gums.
Dental sealants create a barrier between food particles, bacteria, and your teeth. We place dental sealants on the chewing surfaces of your teeth, filling in the deep grooves where decay is most likely to occur.
Sealants are an effective way to protect your teeth against cavities!
Protective Athletic Mouth Guards
Prevention is your best bet when it comes to tooth trauma. We create custom mouth guards for use during sporting activities and recreation that can protect teeth against a fly ball or a nasty fall!
Custom mouth guards are much more effective than the over-the-counter varieties because they stay where they belong when you need them most! Mouth guards absorb a lot of the force during sporting accidents and other activities.
