SERVING BUFORD & GWINNETT COUNTY
A beautiful healthy smile begins with good oral hygiene. Regular dental care can help you avoid dental problems and preserve healthy teeth and gums for life. Good oral hygiene not only keeps your teeth looking clean and shiny, but it is also essential to your overall health. Poor oral hygiene can lead to a variety of dental and medical problems such as gum disease, infection, heart disease, stroke, and even diabetes.
Dentists recommend that teeth be cleaned professionally twice a year in addition to proper brushing and flossing. Dental cleaning, also called prophy, is the removal of dental plaque and tartar in order to prevent cavities, gingivitis and gum disease.
PERIODONTAL DISEASE (GUM DISEASE)
Periodontal disease is the number one cause for adult tooth loss. The buildup of bacteria and tartar cause bone loss and the teeth become loose. Signs of periodontal disease are swollen and bleeding gums. Excessive tartar buildup and gum disease requires deep cleaning also called scaling and root planning. Our hygienists are gentle and caring and are experienced at all types of dental cleaning procedures, so you can rest assured that you are in great hands.
"I absolutely love Lisa, my hygienist, and Dr. Nurani. I was in and out in no time, back to work to finish out the day. The staff is always friendly and welcoming and there is nothing better than walking out with an excellent report and a very clean mouth! Thank you and see you all in six months!"
