With today’s busy schedules, we know that it can be difficult to find time for your family’s regular dental visits—especially if everything feels healthy and you are not in any pain. However, professional teeth cleanings and routine check-ups can go a long way towards preventing painful oral health problems, time in the dental chair, and money out of your wallet. At Bella Hanono Family Dentistry in Alpharetta, Georgia, preventive dentistry is at the heart of our practice.
When we consume foods and beverages, they leave behind debris on our teeth that turn into a sticky substance called plaque. If plaque isn’t removed in a timely fashion by brushing and flossing, it quickly hardens into tartar. Even if you are diligent about your oral hygiene at home, many patients develop plaque and tartar in hard-to-reach areas of their teeth. Once tartar has formed, it is impossible to remove with brushing and flossing at home. That’s where professional cleanings come in! Our teeth cleaning process is designed to combat the formation of cavities and gum disease:
Many dental problems such as gum disease and tooth decay have no obvious symptoms in their early stages, and therefore go unnoticed until they have progressed into a larger issue. At Bella Hanono Family Dentistry, we use the latest dental technologies and tools to help us detect problems at the earliest stage possible when they are easiest and least invasive to treat. For example, gum disease is reversible in its earliest stages when it tends to be asymptomatic, but advanced gum disease cannot be cured. If any issues are identified during your check-up, we will work with you to develop the best treatment plan for your specific needs and preferences.
