Ultra Sonic Cleanings
If you believe brushing and flossing is enough to keep your teeth healthy and happy, you may need to rethink your decision. Professional cleaning should be done every 6 months to keep all types of gum diseases at bay. The Smile Institute now offers Ultra Sonic Cleanings, which is a teeth cleaning procedure that reaches the nooks and crannies to remove harmful plaque in order to restore your oral health.
This innovative procedure involves minimal discomfort. Our skilled doctors make sure to remain as gentle as possible when cleaning your teeth. Regular cleaning will keep your smile looking brighter and shinier whilst preventing major diseases like gingivitis and tooth decay.
Are you or your child addicted to sweets and confectionaries? Sugar from the sweets aids the bacteria in your mouth to produce acids that can attack your enamel and destroy your teeth. Dental Sealants are a great way to prevent tooth decay and preserve your smile.
It is made up of a thin plastic coating that acts as a physical barrier, protecting your precious enamel from plaque and acids. Not investing in sealants now can later result in greater costs for restorative treatments – therefore, keep in mind, prevention is always better than cure!
Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that is often lost form the surface of the teeth due to the bad foods we consume. Sugars produce acids that leech fluoride from your enamel, which ultimately leads to tooth decay. In order to preserve your smile, it is essential to opt for fluoride treatments that seal the enamel shut and prevent it from becoming prey to the bacteria. Fluoride treatments are completely harmless due to the amount of fluoride used.
It is, however, a necessary element for our teeth in order to make them stronger, just as calcium is necessary for our bones. For example, too much calcium would be dangerous for the body, but the right amount is necessary, just as fluoride is. This is especially useful for children that consume too many sweets!
