Sealants, fluoride treatments, regular cleanings, debridements, and deep dental cleanings.
Dental cleanings involve removing plaque (soft, sticky, bacteria infested film) and tartar (calculus) deposits that have built up on the teeth over time. Your teeth are continually bathed in saliva which contains calcium and other substances which help strengthen and protect the teeth. While this is a good thing, it also means that we tend to get a build-up of calcium deposits on the teeth.
Fluoride Treatments help prevent tooth decay by strengthening the tooth structure. These treatments are beneficial for anyone, but can become necessary for people suffering from gingivitis or dry mouth, and are recommended for those with a history of frequently getting cavities. Fluoride used for professional treatment is of a higher concentration than of fluoride found in toothpaste or mouthwash.
The treatment process typically lasts only a few minutes. A gel or foam containing fluoride may be applied directly to the surface of the teeth with a cotton swab or in a rinse. Fluoride gels, mouthwashes, and supplements are also available with a prescription.

Full-Mouth Debridement vs. Ordinary Teeth Cleaning
Half-year preventive dental visits are significant for guaranteeing your dental health is optimal. These visits normally include cleaning tartar (solidified plaque) that might cause rot, gum infection, and terrible breath.
Most hygienists perform an oral assessment before teeth cleaning, as it might uncover that you want a full-mouth debridement (cleaning above and underneath the gums), rather than standard teeth cleaning of the uncovered piece of the teeth (over the gum line).
Full-Mouth Debridement (FMD)
Full-mouth debridement (FMD) is not the same as prophylaxis or expert cleaning. While FMD is essential to analyze what’s going on inside your mouth, prophylaxis just includes the evacuation of tartar (solidified plaque) from the outer layer of your teeth.
In addition, FMD needn’t bother with to be done regularly like teeth cleaning. Your dental specialist may suggest a full-mouth debridement if you have intense, solidified tartar on tooth lacquer.
During FMD, the dental hygienist utilizes an ultrasonic gadget or electric scaler, as well as different manual instruments to clean the uncovered surface of your teeth, trailed by fine-scaling the roots. We’ll give you instructions for the quick recuperation of your gums.
Assuming the oral assessment uncovers that standard teeth cleaning in our Charlotte dental office will be sufficient, the dental hygienist will clean your teeth utilizing extraordinary instruments to eliminate tartar through a cycle known as scaling. Then, the teeth will be cleaned utilizing coarse glue. This cycle is utilized to eliminate any surface stains. Then the hygienist uses dental floss to clean the region between your teeth.
The hygienist might have to examine your underlying foundations for anomalies. If you’re experiencing terrible breath (halitosis), a gingival water system might be important to eliminate food particles and gathered microorganisms. It includes a surge of cured water in the trouble spots to eliminate microbes concealing in hard-to-reach places with a toothbrush or dental floss. This assists with diminishing the size of gum pockets and works on your general oral wellbeing.
