Routine care is key to achieving optimal oral health. Daily at home care, combined with regular professional visits ensures that your smile will be beautiful, healthy and long lasting.
At Manus Dental we believe that comprehensive care is important to the long term health of each patient. Dental cleanings are performed by a trained dental hygienist. All teeth are inspected for signs of decay and gum disease. Identifying problems in the earliest stages allow us to recommend the most conservative treatment options, saving the patient from uncomfortable and expensive procedures.
Many patients have gingivitis, an early stage of gum disease. It is possible for a patient to be affected but not experience symptoms. When recognized early, non-surgical methods are employed to remove plaque and tartar from deep pockets in the gum. Gum disease is a leading cause of tooth loss in adults. Most problems can be detected during the dental cleaning to prevent future damage, infection or decay.
Children and Adolescents
Dental cleanings are also very important to the oral health of children and adolescents because they are particularly susceptible to cavities as well as plaque and tartar build up. Establishing good routines early will create long term habits for proper oral health care.
Our hygienists and dentists are experienced at working with children and understand their unique needs, striving to make them as comfortable as possible during their visit. We begin pediatric dental care at three years of age. For children who are especially anxious or difficult to treat, we do offer nitrous oxide.
