Gentle Care to Prevent Dental Diseases

Regular dental cleanings are essential for proper oral health. Rely on the Five Star Dentistry team of dental assistants, hygienists and dentists who want to make sure that your teeth are healthy. Your smile should serve you as a source of pride throughout your life.

We help you fight against plaque, gum disease and tooth decay. We recommend regular cleanings every six months. If you have gum disease or periodontal disease, you’ll need cleanings at shorter intervals of every three or four months.

Even with proper brushing and flossing, the plaque on your teeth will harden and form what is known as calculus or tartar. Calculus and plaque on the tooth surface cause inflammation of the gums, or gingivitis. This makes a person’s gums bleed when they brush or floss.

Long-term gingivitis can lead to a more advanced gum disease called periodontitis. Periodontitis causes loss of the supporting bone and soft tissue that attaches to and anchors your teeth. This loss of bone weakens the support for your teeth and may lead to further attachment loss. It can potentially lead to losing teeth. Periodontal disease requires advanced treatment to arrest the disease followed by 3 month maintenance cleanings.

We take care of our patients as if they are our family.
