Routine visits for cleanings and gum treatments
A healthy smile is beautiful, but it doesn’t always come naturally. Many patients in Claremont, California, will need to visit with their dental team regularly to ensure healthy teeth and gums. At Courtyard Dentistry, Dr. David Seccombe and his team can help remove plaque and tartar on a regular basis with cleanings while treating dental cavities with fillings as needed.
What happens during routine dental cleaning?
Patients can expect a comprehensive exam and dental X-rays when they visit Courtyard Dentistry for oral health. Our experienced dental team will then employ the latest technologies to remove plaque, tartar, or calculus from the surfaces of the teeth. Finally, a polishing agent is used to remove surface stains and smooth any rough surfaces on the enamel for an improved appearance.
Why might I need more than a cleaning? Deep cleanings? Root Planings?
Many adult patients may have noticed sore gums, bleeding when brushing, gum recession, etc. Our time assesses your gum/bone status and will make appropriate treatment recommendations.
Do I need dental fillings?
In cases where dental cavities are spotted, our team may also recommend treatment with fillings. We are pleased to offer tooth-colored fillings made of composite resin to ensure seamless integration with the natural tooth structure and practically invisible restoration.
For those needing more involved care, Courtyard Dentistry also offers restorative treatments such as dental crowns and bridges, offering same-day services in many cases thanks to our specialized CAD/CAM software and milling device used in-house.
How do I care for my smile between visits?
While you should visit the dentist every six months for an evaluation and cleaning, any problems that occur between appointments should also be brought to the dentist’s attention. Brushing, flossing, and regular visits are encouraged to achieve and maintain good oral health and wellness.
