Preventative Dentistry in Lake Orion
Daily brushing and flossing is essential to maintaining healthy teeth and gums, but regular oral hygiene visits are vital to maintaining good oral health.
Keeping your teeth clean
During these appointments, your hygienist will "scale" your teeth, removing tartar build-up, and polish the surface while removing minor stains. Our hygienist does the scaling process with an ultrasonic tool that vibrates at a frequency strong enough to break down bacterial cell membranes and remove both plaque and calculus, without causing you any pain.
You may also receive a fluoride treatment to help fight decay and ensure clean, healthy teeth.
These visits are a key part of preventative maintenance and provide an opportunity for our team to examine your teeth and gums for potential problems. Often the best way to screen for oral cancer is visually, Dr. Komendera & Associates can see if there are any potential problems arising and biopsy if need be. Early detection will improve your chances to maintain a bright, beautiful smile.
