East Dental Care is dedicated to helping you maintain your gums and overall dental health which is why we provide Preventative Care. Routine home maintenance is very effective, but it only focuses on areas of the tooth that are above the gum. A professional cleaning will be able to clean your teeth above the gum line, which is known as scaling but also below the gum line, which is known as root planing. It is only through regular scaling and root planing procedures that remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria toxins from those hard to reach areas below the gum line that we can keep your gums healthy from top to bottom!
The goal of regular preventative care appointments is to prevent gum disease, which is often pain-free but can ultimately result in premature tooth loss and lead to other health issues if left unattended. We used traditional hand scalers and ultrasonic scaling tools to remove stubborn deposits and tartar (known as calculus).
