Dr. Guillot and his experienced hygienists at Pine Belt Dental will determine the appropriate interval for your routine dental examination and cleaning though most healthy adults should visit the dentist every 6 months. During a routine examination and cleaning visit, Dr. Guillot will perform a thorough examination of your teeth and mouth. His dental hygienists will remove plaque and calculus (tartar) from your teeth, especially from places where your brush can’t reach, such as underneath the gum line and in-between teeth. We will then clean your teeth and, if appropriate, apply fluoride to help protect your teeth once you leave the office.
Fluoride is an important advancement in dental and oral health. Studies consistently show that a moderate but consistent exposure of teeth to fluoride helps strengthen and rebuild tooth structure and helps prevent future decay.
In addition, digital radiographs (X-rays) will be obtained yearly to determine if any changes have occurred to your oral status.
The grooves and depressions that form the back teeth's chewing surfaces are extremely difficult (if not impossible) to clean of bacteria and food. As the bacteria reacts with the food, acids form and break down the tooth enamel, causing cavities. Recent studies indicate that 88 percent of total cavities in American school children are caused this way.
Tooth sealants protect susceptible areas by sealing the grooves and depressions, preventing bacteria and food particles from residing there. Sealant material is a resin typically applied to the back teeth, molars, premolars, and cavity-prone areas. It lasts for several years but needs to be checked during regular appointments.
Your teeth will darken over time. Changes in the color of your teeth can be caused by such factors as the food and beverages consumed (like coffee, tea, and soda). Other known factors for discoloration may include childhood medications or illnesses, tobacco use or improper oral hygiene. Restoring your natural white smile is one of our priorities. We can provide a variety of options for whitening your smile.
