Why is it Essential to Receive Regular Cleanings & Exams?

To effectively protect your smile, it's vital to see one of our dentists twice a year for exams and cleanings. When you have your teeth cleaned professionally multiple times a year, you reduce your risk of tooth loss, cavities, and gum disease. During your Lake Forest cleaning, we look for symptoms of gum disease and demonstrate effective hygiene techniques to use at home. By diligently caring for your gums and teeth, you help prevent the need for future treatments and expensive dental restorations.

What Should I Expect During My Visit?

During your checkup, we do more than simply clean your teeth. A Lake Forest cleaning and exam includes:

  • Digital x-rays to check for any concerns
  • A comprehensive cancer screening, with intraoral imaging and a visual check
  • A thorough cleaning from one of our skilled hygienists
  • A consultation with one of our dentists

Gentle Care for Children & Teens

diverse group of little kidsBy having your child see our dentists for routine visits at a young age, you help establish a lasting bond of trust. We strive to make your child or young teenager's visit as interactive and stress-free as possible. If you have questions or feel nervous at any point, our experienced team knows how to set their mind at ease. During our Lake Forest cleanings for kids, we apply sealants and fluoride to protect their teeth from cavities and enhance oral health.

During regular visits, our dentists check your child's dental development to make sure their oral health is on track. If we notice anything that needs attention, we'll refer you to our trusted orthodontist for further evaluation and recommendations.

Routine Dental Checkups for Adults

As you grow older, it's important to maintain excellent dental hygiene. By visiting our dentist twice a year, you protect your oral health and overall well-being. Not only do we thoroughly clean your teeth, but we also keep an eye out for any warning signs of periodontal (gum) disease. This condition can impact all ages but is particularly prevalent among seniors. If you suffer from gum disease, our practice offers several treatments to help restore your health.

Efficient Treatments for Gum Disease

Our practice provides prompt, compassionate, and non-judgmental care for gum disease. We know how difficult it is to battle gum disease, and our only goal is to provide the care you need to resume a healthy and comfortable lifestyle. Our team is prepared to assist you with:

Scaling and Root Planing: Scaling and root planing is a routine treatment for gum disease. We start by removing plaque, bacteria, and other debris beneath and along your gum line with scaling. Our team then carefully smooths tooth roots during planing. This thorough two-step process can treat the active infection and reduce the risk of recurring issues. Depending on your situation, we may recommend using certain medications or mouthwashes after your treatment to protect your gums while they heal.

Maintenance Cleanings: After undergoing treatment for gum disease, our team performs maintenance cleanings to keep your gums healthy. Unlike regular dental cleanings, maintenance cleanings occur every three months. Our team cleans your teeth to remove any bacteria that's built up since your last cleaning. We use a diode laser during this treatment to substantially reduce bacteria buildup.

Gum Grafts: If you've experienced gum recession due to gum disease, we may suggest receiving a gum graft. When you undergo this treatment, we replace tissue in areas where the roots of your teeth have become exposed due to recession. A gum graft can protect your teeth and improve the aesthetics of your smile.

Pocket Reduction Procedures: A pocket reduction procedure reduces or eliminates pockets formed by gum disease. Undergoing this treatment makes your teeth easier to clean and removes harmful bacteria. A pocket reduction treatment can also reduce the risk of continuing damage to your jawbone and gum tissue.
