At Sandstone Dental we offer dental hygiene and teeth cleaning services. We know that healthy teeth and gums are the foundation of a healthy mouth and a beautiful smile.
Research has linked periodontal disease, commonly known as gum disease, in that it may increase your risk in developing many other health conditions, including diabetes, heart disease and stroke, kidney disease, Alzheimer’s, asthma, osteoporosis, premature births and low birth weights, impotence and many types of cancers. That is why Sandstone Dental is dedicated to helping you maintain your gums and overall oral health.
Routine home brushing and flossing, while very effective, only focuses on areas of the tooth that are above the gum line. Professional cleaning by a dental hygienist allows us to clean your teeth above and below the gum line, which is known as scaling and 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!
Our Dental Team uses traditional hand scalers and ultrasonic scaling tools to remove stubborn deposits and tartar (known as calculus). The goal of regular dental hygiene appointments is to prevent periodontal disease commonly referred to as gum disease. Gum disease is often pain-free in early stages but can ultimately result in premature tooth loss and lead to other health issues if left unattended.
