Preventive Dentistry Can Help You Enjoy Lifelong Oral Health
Every outstanding smile has a strong foundation of preventive care underneath – after all, aren’t dental problems easier to treat when they haven’t even gotten the chance to start yet? That’s why our team provides full checkups, revitalizing cleanings, and other valuable services that are meant to protect oral health in the long-term. If it’s been more than six months since you or your loved one’s last visit to the dentist, contact Coombs & Ross Family Dentistry today to set up an appointment.
Dental Check-Ups & Cleanings
Unfortunately, dental problems can develop under the surfaces of smiles even in patients who diligently brush and floss every single day. That’s where regular dental checkups and cleanings come in. These sessions help Dr. Coombs and Dr. Ross fully understand your personal oral health needs, any concerning issues that need attention, and what we can do to help you.
During your examination, we will review every tooth, your gum tissue, your resting bite, your jaw joints, any existing restorative work, and more in order to ensure that everything is healthy and working harmoniously. X-rays will also give us a look into areas that may not be accessible to the naked eye so that we can ensure that our findings are as comprehensive as possible. Additionally, our team will want to clear away any harmful plaque and tartar that’s gathered on your teeth at regular intervals so that you can be better protected from decay. One of our hygienists will perform a professional cleaning in order to leave your smile refreshed and polished.
Dentistry for Children
Being able to make essential oral health care easier for our patients is important to us, which is why Coombs & Ross Family Dentistry is open to whole families! We enjoy providing gentle services to children, establishing the building blocks of lifelong healthy smiles, and helping them understand that there’s nothing to fear at the dentist’s office. Plus, parents will be able to save more time by avoiding extra trips to separate practices.
Periodontal disease (also known as gum disease) is a common condition that exhibits small symptoms in its early stages. Maybe you notice some blood in your spit after brushing and flossing, or maybe your gum tissue looks a little puffy. However, if this infection is left to its own devices for too long, it can start to cause lasting damage to not just your smile, but your overall health and wellbeing too. Thankfully, our team here in Rock Hill, SC can lend a helping hand.
Periodontal screenings are an essential part of every regular checkup, and we offer multiple effective therapy options that can revitalize your gum health, including:
- Scaling & Root Planing – This in-depth cleaning targets harmful bacteria underneath the gum tissue and along the tooth roots.
- Antibiotic Therapy – By applying the medication directly to the gum pockets, we can eliminate any bacteria that weren’t caught on the first pass by our other treatment options.
- Laser Dentistry – Our state-of-the-art lasers allows us to treat gum tissue with pinpoint accuracy and maximum comfort.
