While you may brush twice a day (or after every meal) and use dental floss, there are still things your home oral hygiene care cannot do for you. That’s why, here at Todd S. Adams, DDS, Dr. Todd Adams and his team are committed to helping patients maintain healthier smiles through cleaning services such as dental calculus removal.
While we fully encourage patients to continue brushing and flossing regularly to keep a check on oral health issues such as tooth decay and periodontal disease, there are times when such conditions can still arise.
This is why patients must visit Dr. Adams every six months to receive oral prophylaxis and a thorough examination. With these visits, we may be able to spot severe oral health issues in their earlier stages, making it easier for Dr. Adams and his team to tackle them.
During your oral prophylaxis treatment, we provide:
For patients who feel anxiety when visiting the dentist, we have your concerns in mind. One of our highly trained dental hygienists will perform your oral cleaning and will safely and gently clean your teeth and gums.
One of the tools used in this endeavor is a special scaling tool that helps dislodge tartar and plaque that get stuck on the surfaces of your teeth. We also use a unique power brush to administer a professional-grade cleaning paste to your teeth that cleans them straight to your gum line.
If necessary, your dental hygienist may also employ fluoride treatment and give your teeth good, professional flossing.
Many who already have advanced oral health issues, such as late-stage gum disease, may avoid going to the dentist and believe they are beyond treatment. But, this isn’t true!
Our team can provide solutions such as deeper cleaning, sometimes called “scaling and root planing.” With this treatment, we can remove tartar and plaque that might have accumulated below the gum line and way into the roots of your teeth. This treatment can also reduce pockets that collect bacteria, allowing gum disease to progress.
You deserve to enjoy the benefits of having a cleaner, healthier, fresher smile. Call Todd S. Adams, DDS, and make an appointment for your prophylaxis treatment and examination. Your smile will thank you later. Our phone number is (408) 355-9292, and our address is 1555 Sunnyvale Saratoga Road, Sunnyvale, CA 94087.
