Our Preventative Dental Services
At your routine dental appointment, our hygienists will conduct a meticulous cleaning of your teeth to remove any plaque and tartar. When left untreated, these harmful substances can lead to problems like cavities, gum disease, and even tooth infections, which may require a root canal treatment. Using specialized dental tools, we can perform a deep cleaning of your mouth to eliminate bacteria that can’t be removed by brushing and flossing alone.
Dental Exams and X-Ray Imaging
A thorough dental examination is also part of your routine dental appointment. Our dentists can often detect oral health problems at their earliest signs. Thanks to our advanced dental technology, our preventative dentist in Sierra Vista, AZ can diagnose and begin treatment for conditions like:
- Oral cancer
- Tooth decay
- Bone loss
- Cysts and tumors
- Periodontal (gum) disease
Also known as periodontitis and gum disease, periodontal disease is the infection of the soft tissues of your gums that can lead to several complications. If left untreated, periodontal disease can eventually lead to the destruction of your teeth and jawbone. The earlier this infection is detected, the easier it is to treat.
