Oxyfresh Homecare Program
Our practice is proud to offer Oxyfresh, a top of the line maker of home health products. If you are concerned that your over-the-counter personal care products are not doing enough, talk to us about Oxyfresh.
Since excellent home care is the key to a clean, healthy mouth between visits, we recommend the complete line of Oxyfresh preventive home care products for everyday use. The Oxyfresh toothpaste and mouth rinse work together to eliminate bacterial toxins responsible for bleeding gums and bad breath. To provide you with a choice, we offer the mouth rinse and multi-use Oxygene gel with or without fluoride. For those who have difficulty flossing, the Oxycare 3000 irrigator is designed to remove hard-to-reach plaque between and around the teeth. It uses the advanced technology of hydromagnetics to remove soft plaque and prevent stubborn tartar buildup. There is no more effective way to maintain your periodontal health between dental visits and to protect your investment in major dental work.
We use a specialized laser to detect cavities in the pits and grooves of teeth long before they could be found with traditional techniques. With this state-of-the-art instrument, we are able to keep teeth healthy and natural with early intervention.This is an FDA-approved diagnostic laser that is used primarily to locate decay below the chewing surfaces of back teeth in deep grooves and pits. These areas can have decay that is virtually impossible to detect with routine dental instruments. The laser will detect decay-producing bacteria and give a digital readout to guide the dentist to take the appropriate action: no treatment, or need for anesthetic. Our practice also offers both hard tissue lasers and soft tissue lasers for the treatment of oral disease.
Gum Disease Treatment
Red, swollen gums are a red flag for one thing: gum disease. If you have the symptoms, you're not alone. More than 80% of adults have some form of gum disease. Fortunately, there are many effective and pain-free gum disease treatments. For gingivitis, the mildest form of gum disease, treatment typically involves a thorough dental cleaning, followed by daily brushing and flossing. Advanced gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, requires scaling and root planing to remove stubborn deposits below the gum line. Laser gum surgery, a new alternative to scaling and root planing, uses beams of high-speed light to remove plaque and tartar buildup. If non-surgical methods of gum disease treatment are ineffective, a gingivectomy, or periodontal surgery, may be necessary.
